Goodbye 2015


Today is New Years Eve so I thought I would share some of my memories of 2015! and what better way to look back on my year than searching through Instagram and reminding myself of all the fun and challenging times I've had. 

First of all I would like to talk about my BIRTHDAY! The birthday of the year..I know you're probably thinking WHAT A BIG HEAD but my birthday is the 1st of August and everyone is always in that summer/party mood so it's always a blast. 

This year, after I had been to T in the Park I wanted to have my own festival. So I did and named it 'Slate Fest' as my second name is 'Slater'. I bought some wrist bands off ebay for about £3. I have to say I LOVED THEM and I think everyone else did. I also had limbo, beer pong, cocktail making, scran, chill zone, tattoos, and of course the music blasting. (Sorry neighbours). OMG and how can I forget the most amazing posters made by my friend boyfriend to stick around my garden! They were literally SO GOOD!! Thanks again lee for doing that..big loves. 

As you can see from the pictures it was such a laugh and everyone was loving my 'Slate Fest' insta frame I made for the occasion.

This year has also been full of other celebrations including weddings, engagements and christening. Massive Congratulations to James's sister that got married and of course shout out to James for his amazing speech at their wedding. Also some of mine and James's closest friends got engaged this year and we literally can't wait for the wedding in 2017! Congratulations Kat and Adam! 

I have spend as much time as I can with my fav six girls and I'm sure we will have just as many adventures in 2016! Our little weekend in Embleton has got to be one of my favourites. I can't wait to do it all again in Summer 2016. 

I love music festivals and this year I went to T In the Park with James, my auntie and uncle in their camper van! James refused to go camping in a tent because he had a bad experience when he went with the lads one year. I've got to admit I enjoy camping at festivals with the girls but this year spending time with the family and having good food and a shower everyday was AMAZING!

If you read my blog often you will know I have 6 main girls in my life and we have been friends from school, however I also have another bunch of amazing girls in my life who I met when working at French Connection! I worked there for 6 years and I am very grateful to have met them. We always have the wildest, funniest, craziest nights/outings and I literally wouldn't change them for the world!

I have had another lush year with James and one of my favourite outings with him has got to be when we went to Edinburgh! It is such a beautiful city and the ZOO is just the most AMAZING place ever. I literally spent most of my day watching the monkeys, I think James wanted to kill me by the end of it haha! I'm obssessed with them, even got myself a pen and key ring with a monkey on, in the shop before leaving. But honestly if you haven't been to Edinburgh/Zoo before I would definitely put it on your do it list for 2016!

Although this year has been another year of fun with my favs! I can't forget about the challenges and tears I had during the beginning of the year completing my PGCE in Primary Education. Don't get me wrong I loved it but it was hard work! I met some lovely people along the way and I can't thank them, my friends/boyfriend and family enough for their support! I am currently still searching for that dream school and classroom to follow my dream as a primary school teacher so please keep your fingers crossed for me in the new year. 

Finally, I would like to talk about my blog. As you can see from my most popular Instagram post, most of the pictures were to do with my reviews and blog posts. Although I only started in October, I have had so many amazing comments by friends/ family and of course you lovely lot who have chose to read my blog. I hope this year I continue to grow my followers with exciting content as I have really enjoyed doing it for the past few months. Thank you again for reading!

In 2016, I hope to continue blogging, keep fit, spend more time with my family and of course find my dream job as a primary school teacher. 

Thank you again for your support on my blog and here's to 2016! Let's make a million more amazing memories! 

What's your favourite memory of 2015? What do you hope to achieve in 2016? Have you got any plans for 2016 already?
