Looking back on 2015

2015 has been many things for me, but sadly it hasn't been a year of blogging. Life's been exciting and busy, with two new jobs within the year, a new car and a couple of holidays in there too. The time, energy and motivation for blogging just wasn't there, but I honestly missed it and everything that comes with it. I'm not one for new year's resolutions, but if there's anything I intend to do in 2016 it's go back to blogging like I did before. Whether it's one post a week or one post a month, I'll be happy with that.

Before tackling 2016, let's just go back to 2015 for a minute. There have been exciting changes that haven't yet been documented on this blog - towards the end of the year, Josh and I put in an offer on a little house that we saw and it was accepted! We're still waiting for all the paperwork to go through and for our solicitors to arrange a completion date, but hopefully if all goes well we'll be moving in early 2016! I'm so excited to have our own space to decorate and make ours, we've already been looking at furniture and sofas - it's so exciting!

I also started a brand new job in December, moving on from my social media role at Whittard of Chelsea to another social media role for fashion brand Superdry. I've loved my first month there, it's all really fast paced and exciting so I'm looking forward to everything to come in 2016.

As well as those key life changes, 2015 has been full of friends, gin, travel, food and plenty of fun. I'm very lucky to have found the people and things that make life great - so here's to more of that in 2016!

How was your year and what are you looking forward to in 2016?
