Hey Lovelies hope your all okay and enjoying the new year. Today I thought I would do a lifestyle type post and do about my year.
My year has had it's up and it's down like I think most people's do but I'm not going to focus on the negative, I'm focusing on the amazing things that have happened this year both personal and from blogging.
At the beginning of the year I got to go to the Harry Potter studios and this was the best present I got, I had so much fun visiting the studios, it will be a memory I'll never forget and I took lots of pictures and filmed it so I'll always remember the day. I've been a huge Harry Potter fan for such a long time so it was so amazing that I got to go and see all the props, costumes, sets, animals just everything.
In May I had been blogging for 2 years, I can't believe that I had been blogging for so long but it's always been so much fun and I've always enjoyed doing it and I will continue to for years to come. I've found that this year my photography skills have improved which I'm really proud of as before blogging I never really took many pictures and it was on phones or compact easy cameras and now I only use a bridging camera but it's really good quality. My blog has grown so much but it's still my little baby that I will always be proud of.
I finished my 2 years at college and achieved a distinction* distinction* distinction in my Health and Social Care which is equivalent to A*A*A in A Levels which I'm so proud of myself as it was a lot of work but I worked really hard to get it. I'm currently at college training to be a teaching assistant which is also a lot of work but I'm really enjoying it and being on a placement at primary school is really enjoyable and hopefully in 2015 I will be qualified and working in a school.
I had the chance to go to a couple events which were so much fun but I was so anxious about going to them. I went to the Sheffield Blogger Meetup and I got to know a lot more bloggers from my hometown and the surrounding area which was really nice and the day was really enjoyable. I went to the AX Paris Press Event in Manchester, I actually travelled on my own to the event and this made me so nervous but I managed to do it, which was out of my comfort zone but I'm proud I did it. I got to meet the lovely Kayleigh I had talked to here for ages and it was so nice finally meeting her and she's just as nice and gorgeous in person. It was the first time I got to meet Heather we have been friends for ages and so it was nice to finally meet her and we got on so well and she's so lovely and I talked to new bloggers as well and they were all so nice. I hope to go to more events in 2015 and meet lots more lovely bloggers.
Me, Heather and Georgina hosted our own blogger meetup in Sheffield, this was so different and something I had never done before but it was so much fun and we accomplished a lot in such a short amount of time and all the bloggers had an amazing time, so it was a huge bonus for us. I wouldn't mind do another meetup in the future.
A huge thing for me was that I have grown in confidence, I'm still not completely confident but this year I accepted myself more and felt more comfortable in myself and I'm not afraid to be myself. I've told so many more people this year about my blog because I am proud of it and I don't feel ashamed or care anymore what anyone else thinks about me or my blog. I'm not going to change myself for anyone but myself.
Having an amazing Christmas with my family and then finding out my parents are getting married in February was so unexpected but I can't wait.
I've had a challenging but good year and I hope 2015 will be even better and that I continue to do what I love.
What's your favourite memory of 2014?
