My Highlights Of 2018 | 12 Days of Christmas!


Hey there! I wasn't quite sure how to start to round up my blog for 2018 and I wanted to do something a little bit different that I haven't done before, so I thought sharing some of my highlights of my year would be a good idea. My highlights aren't in any particular order, just in a list and  I hope you enjoy. 

1. Finished College.

I don't really talk about my life too much on my blog, but I finished college this year with a Merit in my Makeup Artist course and I was over the moon with this. Not gonna lie I did hope I was going to get a Distinction but I'm still happy and I can't wait to see what the future holds for me in my makeup career. 

2. Buying my First Car.

One thing I wanted to do more than anything this year was buy my first car. I've had my license for nearly 2 years now and in September this year, I was finally able to purchase my first car. It's a little Corsa and I'm so happy to now have a car, which I was able to buy myself.

3. Being more Active.

At the beginning of this year I set myself a goal to be more active ... well let's be honest here, I set myself this goal every year but this year I actually stuck to it. One of my friends and I went for weekly walks in the countryside for quite a few months and I felt so much better with in myself both physically and on the inside.

4. Met a Blogger.

Since I started blogging I wanted to meet bloggers and be able to talk to others that are doing the same thing as me and share advice and ideas ... and this year I was able to meet one of my very good blogger friends Alix, not only once but twice. It's so nice to be able to chat to someone I can relate to so much and also to have met such a lovely friend who I probably wouldn't have met if it wasn't for us both blogging.

5. Visited new places.

If you know me, you'll know that I absolutely love travelling, meeting new people, experiencing new cultures and visiting new places and this year I was able to do just that. I've been to Spain lots and lots of times, but we always seem to visit the same few places including Barcelona, the Balearic Islands and a few other places, however, this year we went to Torremolinos  and Benalmadena. I went with my family for a relaxing beach holiday and we did lots of things including visiting the Benalmadena Marina, going to a waterpark and lots more!  If you haven't already seen my Holiday Pictures post, you can click here.

6. Made new friends.

Since leaving school, I've always kept my group quite small because I just don't do drama. However, this year I have made lots of new friends and also got back in touch with old friends.


7. Booked a trip.

Back in April, I think, one of my friends and me booked a trip to Goa, India for February and we're going for 8 days. We've spent these past few months prepping for it including holiday shopping, sorting visas, vaccines and overall just planning the trip. I can't believe we're going in just over a month and you bet you're gonna see a good few posts on our holiday!!

8. Hitting 50,000 views.

Back in August my blog hit 50,000 page views and this honestly still blows my mind. I know it's not all about numbers, but this was a big milestone for my little blog and I'm ever so grateful for my readers. This was one of my highlights of this year as this time last year I was at 29,000 views and now that number has almost doubled in 365 days ... CRAZY!

9. Changed Jobs.

At the beginning of this year I had a part time job that I really didn't like and wasn't enjoying, so I made the decision to leave and find a new one. Back in April I got a job in a salon and I actually really enjoyed it, however, I knew it just wasn't for me and I was on really bad money, so again I wanted a change. In July I managed to get a full time job, which I wouldn't say I love but I much prefer it to where I was working previously.

10. Worked with more brands.

This year I was so lucky to be able to work with a couple of brands and collab with quite a few bloggers. I worked with Zaful and Ben & Anna UK, which I am so happy to have to worked with. I hope to be able to work with more brands in the new year.

Those were all of my highlights from this year and overall I'd say I've had a pretty good year and I'm so looking forward to see what 2019 has in store for me.
