Last year was not a particularly great year for me and my family, or for the world for that matter, it seemed like there was always some sort of tragedy or issue happening. I am therefore very okay with waving goodbye to 2016 and welcoming 2017 with open arms. Usually my first post of the year would be my resolutions but this year I have decided to look back at 2016 and find the good things that happened each month to remind me that whilst shit happens, life goes on and you have to make the most of it whilst you can.Read more »

Neglected! I’m sad to say this is definitely the word that comes to mind when it comes to my blog of late, BUT that is all about to change as I have an announcement. I have a new job. A new thirst for life. And the passion I haven’t felt in a while in wanting to blog and be a stable part of this community again.

Last month I got the chance to attend the JewelleryBox Karma Moments launch, which gave me the chance to see their new collection, choose my favourite necklace from the ten available and personally make it, whilst trying a cocktail or two from The Fine Cocktail Company.

Saturday 3 September saw the third #BloggersFestival take place, run by the lovely Scarlett London. I have been attending Scarlett’s events for years now so I’m sure you’ve seen me gush about them, and her, every few months but she truly does throw an amazing event, I’m always on such a high after them! This year more than ever after having the best time with fellow bloggers Ana and Cat, with whom we made our own hashtag #twoportugueseandaginger, and Abi a new blogger that I have personally known for about 10 years and I am planning on moving in with next year.
