My learnings of this year

Good afternoon internet friends! Thanks for hanging around while I get myself together again, it’s been a mad few weeks and I finally feel myself again (almost!)

A quick life/health update before today’s topic, I met with the neurologist at the hospital and he’s 99% sure I didn’t have a seizure and the blackout was of unknown cause but likely related to anxiety!

Now to some that might still sound worrying, but it’s a lot easier for me to deal with that than going through the motions of scans/tests and being put on anti convulsants, so overall I’m a much happier chap!

For today, I’ve compiled a list of my fashion/ beauty learnings of 2016 and thought I’d summarise it in a nice list for you (I love lists ❤️) ;

1. The one piece of jewellery missing from my life has been an engagement ring and I’m over the moon to be marrying my best friend in 2018;

2. Armani Luminous Silk foundation is a potion of wonderfulness and makes my skin beautiful, so it cost a small fortune (cough..£35… what?!) but that’s okay!

3. Diet Coke is life, but my skin doesn’t agree. 2 cans of caffeine free everyday and gallons of water/ Robinsons strawberry & kiwi is much better for me!

4. No more purchases should be made from as their quality is rubbish and 2 orders I’ve made haven’t made it past my front door. For a reminder, I’ve inserted a photo of a not so great dress order I posted about earlier on this year;

5. I love white shirts. Since my post about my obsession, I have purchased an additional 2 to add to my collection making a grand total of 11

6. I also have a bit of a thing for boots. For Christmas I got 3 different pairs and am sure that I will continue to add more to my collection!

7. I will continue to be a Topshop clone

8. I feel like I have achieved sexy and am proud of my bod, hello Bond girl coming out of the sea;

9. I consider my hair to be long now (it covers my boobs 😜😂) and I will continue to grow it for my wedding 👰

10. I’m not a fan of throwaway fashion and like to invest in statement pieces that I’ll get a lot of wear out of – prints and patterns go quickly out of fashion people!

11. I’ve found that I can’t be bothered to dye my hair anymore and have decided to go au natural for a while (doubt this will last!)

12. Eyebrows are important and it’s easy to get whisked away with the continuous plucking. Fuller brows that aren’t far apart look much better;


13. Not to dismiss bridesmaid dresses from China, sometimes they’re pleasantly surprising! 

14. I’m probably going to post a lot more stuff of weddings, because in case you haven’t heard, I’M GETTING MARRIED!


There’s obviously a lot more that I’ve learnt but these have been my highlights. Please feel free to take yourself back to earlier posts for a bit of light reading!

And thank you all for taking the time to read my posts this year. It means the world to me when people I know have been reading my blog and bring it up when I see them! I love writing and this has been a great outlet for me to express my love!

Have a great one tonight and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!! 🎉🎉🎉

Until next time…
