My 3 accomplishments of 2017

I'm writing this as we are about to enter 2018. It's a time to be reflective, not say the obvious statements - "I can't believe 2017 is over" or "Is it really January again?!" It's always interesting, but sometimes tedious, to see what everybody's New Year's resolutions will be. No doubt I'll be seeing the "Going on a diet" or "Start jogging" resolutions flash up on my Facebook timeline.

Here's my reflection of this year, has 2017 been a successful year for me? In some areas, yes, in other areas? Probably not so much. But it's good to look back on the last 12 months to see what I could achieve in 2018 and what goals are easy to strive for over in the next year before I re-write this post in December 2018.

Most Liked, Retweeted and Viewed - December 2017

The festive season is over and we are about to welcome a new year. It feels just like only yesterday since we were letting off the fireworks to bring in 2017. How time flies. Well, December has been an obvious festive, good feel month.

I had a lovely, quiet, sprawly (if that's even a word!) Christmas Day with my Mam where we pigged out and watched Christmas TV. The best programme on Christmas Day being EastEnders, which I still can't get over.

My 7 favourite bloggers of 2017.

So this is my first entire calendar year blogging and boy how quick has it gone?!

I never thought that writing my thoughts, taking god knows how many flat lay photos and pre-planning blog posts two or three months ahead of time would make me as happy as it has. Like I said in my About page , I adore writing, I did when I was in school and still do today.

One thing I love about blogging is reading other blogger's work and content and viewing their stunning pictures.

Winter

I know it's felt like Winter for a while now, but today marks the official start of Winter. I'll admit it, I do love the Winter months. I think I love it more in the lead up to Christmas rather than in January when everything and everyone looks and feels miserable. There are so many good things about winter, here are a few things I adore about the colder months:

You are NOT what you eat!

Now, I'm not a psychic, I can't really predict future events, if I could, I'd love to know if Liverpool will win any trophies this season or how my health will be next year. But one thing I know I will see as we come into the New Year - the New Year diet extravaganza.

Are we still preoccupied with the desperate need to cut back on the food after we've pigged out so much over the holidays? Really? Which, by the way, is the way to do things at Christmas.

65 Things I Love About Christmas

Christmas is fast approaching, I'm currently writing this after I have just finished wrapping all my presents for my family and friends. Jeez it took me ages but having a Christmas CD on in the background made the job seem easier and less hassle. How can you not wrap presents to Christmas songs, like seriously?! This got me thinking, what are ALL the things I love about Christmas? It's certainly a very festive and joyous time of year, there's so many reasons why I and so many others enjoy the Christmas season, here are some of them, well, 65 to be precise:

Tips for Christmas Shopping

We are finally at the point where the thought of buying Christmas presents for loved ones creeps into our minds. Mind you, I think I started thinking about it near the beginning of November.


Is it important to be organised? Yes it is, but only to a certain extent. People who start buying Christmas presents months before the big day are too organised in my opinion. I mean, how can you remember who you've bought for whom from so long ago?! I can barely remember who I've bought presents for in November/December let alone March/April! But I can see the logic behind it, it can save you money.

Love Is In The Hair

Even though I don't do it often, I love getting my hair cut.
I love thinking about the endless possibilities of what I could do to change my hair style. Will I pluck up the courage and have a completely different style or colour? But, as always, I end up having the same conversation with my hairdresser -
