Making 2018 My Year

// M A K I N G  2 0 1 8  M Y  Y E A R \\

The number 18 has always been my lucky number. Its the date of my birthday in September. The date of my mum's in March and my close cousins in February. Its the number my Nain (grandma) lives at and its even the number of my blog (but that's solely based on lack of inspiration for blog names back in 2014 HAHA).. Weirdly too, 18 is in my new university halls postcode. I've always considered 18 my favourite number. So, when the clock struck midnight and 2018 was upon me, I suddenly thought 2018 has to be a luckly year.. has to be. I mean I started the year with a bad Fever followed by Tonsillitis which is quite ironic because that's incredibly unlucky. BUT, now I'm back to full health (& back in routine at uni) I'm setting myself some incredibly vague goals.. but realistic. Small ways I actually want this year to go (& hopefully will) Besides, what better time then '18, huh?

Sentimental Value

 // S E N T I M E N T A L  V A L U E \ \

In a world of endless clothes buying, fast fashion and reckless spending (or is that just me?) how many pieces in your wardrobe would you say you cherish? Do you have anything inparticular you know you'll never part with, pass on to your (hopefully) daughter (or even granddaughter?) I have to say, if I were lucky enough to have endless designer items of value, then yes perhaps. I mean I have the odd accessories piece I paid an arm and leg for which will never leave me EVER. But, up until this Christmas, I'd never really had a item of clothing that had any meaning, any value. So, I went about changing that..

Blog Eighteen in Twenty Seventeen

/ / B L O G  E I G H T E E N  I N  T W E N T Y  S E V E N T E E N \\

Doing an 'end of year review' has become somewhat of a tradition on this blog. I hadn't realised, but I have done a 'Blog Eighteen in..' post for the past 2 years, this years offerings being my 3rd edition. So, in keeping with traditions (as it were) I thought I'd give a little round up of my very topsy turvy year (you'll see what I mean as I talk you through the months!) Ive gone from working in a full time job back home, to leaving, having a great summer and then moving 300 miles away to university in Surrey. Now I'm back home for Christmas, it seems the perfect time to reflect on the, like I said, 'topsy-turvy' year I've had. Having read last years review like this, I had a sudden urge to keep these yearly review posts alive, so sit back and let me talk you through my year.. enjoy!

Snippets of a Festive London..

/ / A  F E S T I V E  L O N D O N \\

Now, as you may have seen by now I'm lucky enough to be going to University very near London. I simply have to hop on a train and 40 minutes later I'm magically in the Capital. So visiting London has become somewhat of a weekly thing amongst me and my friends. BUT, over the weekend I had my mum come down to London for a festive few days (before helping me with all my luggage to come home from uni for Christmas!) So, with playing the tourist over the weekend I thought I'd compile all my snaps and show you the festivities we got up to..

My Colour Palette for Winter

// M Y  C O L O U R  P A L E T T E  F O R  W I N T E R \\

Saying I have a specific 'colour palette' for this winter is a little of a sweeping statement; I of course wear an array of colours. But, in todays post I wanted to write about the colours I seem to have been turning to in the last few weeks. With the weather now officially COLD, trying to say fashionable whilst simultaneously keeping warm enough not to freeze to death in the icy winds has been a challenge. But with the handful of jumpers and layers (and layers) of clothing, dressing for the weather with the help of a colour palette of mostly Cream, Pink and the odd Burnt Orange/Red, winter dressing has seemed a success.. even if my ankles have been numb a few times.
