One Year On




It was roughly a year ago that I started this little blog and I just wanted to say a massive thank you to anyone who takes the time to read or comment, as it all means a lot to me!

I thought I'd make up this little collage of some of my favourite outfits from the past year. I would definitely say my photography skills have improved....maybe next year I'll pluck up the courage to allow someone else to take my pictures, maybe even outside!!!??

I love making lists of my favourite things or looking back on the year on all the exciting things I have done! When thinking back on this year, I realised that it has easily been one of the best I have ever had! Here are five things I have loved about this year;

  • Going to Sziget festival and travelling around some of Europe with my best friends
  • Seeing both the legends that are Bob Dylan and Donovan play this summer
  • Seeing Pulp play a total of three times this year, esp. at Brixton Academy when Jarvis was on top form
  • Watching a close friend getting married in the most beautiful Scottish castle
  • Going to Paris and having my first holiday with Danny

Next year I am mostly looking forward to my best friend giving birth to her little girl and starting a life with her new family. I also really want to travel more and have my heart set on a trip to Japan.

The lovely Katie recently tagged me in one of her posts and passed a blogging award onto me, so I thought I would share 5 facts about myself;
  • I have a very squeaky voice!! I sound as though I am five years old and I'm now worried that in my mid twenties it's not getting any deeper.
  • A lot of people think I am tiny! But I don't think I am. I'm 5'3 but still have the nick name 'Wee-Mo'.
  • Although I think a lot of people see me as a confident person, I am actually quite self conscious and can be really quiet around people I don't know. I get ridiculously nervous and am easily embarrassed. I especially turn into a bit of a wreck if someone complements me, I will honestly start to list most of my faults instead of just saying thank you!
  • I eat Japanese food every day! If I am invited out for dinner I generally panic and have to mentally prepare myself for branching out!
  • I need a lot of sleep! Not in a lazy way but in an exhausted way. I need so much sleep that my boyfriend thinks I should see a doctor about it!

Here are my top 5 blogs this year and those I would pass he awrd onto;

Hope everyone has a great New Year! xx

    1. All the pics show what a stylish lady you are! I love all the different combinations of textures and styles like girly/tough etc. I so wish I'd got to see Pulp this year, but have seen The Kills who were rather fab. And thanks for the award :) You are definitely in my top blogs of the year too. And don't worry about being quiet, I am too.. I don't think it was too awkward when we met anyway! :) Happy New Year xxx

    5. Ha the comment about you having a voice of a child made me laugh. I too sounds approx 5 years old and it's worse on the phone, I always wonder what must people think when I'm making work calls that a small child is ringing them up! x

    8. I loved reading these interesting facts about you and can't believe you eat Japanese food every day! I am dying to visit Japan too although next year will probably involve a holiday in New York once my best friend has moved there and a hot sunbathing type of holiday with my other best friend. Plus it's still my dream to visit Stockholm.
      Hope you have a fabulous new year. I'm celebrating it at Lulu on George street. Can't wait! xx

    11. Thank you for the link Mo! Also I remember that pink skirt, it's beautiful. I hope you whip it out this summer! I get nervous about people I don't know too, I feel as if I make people awkward with my awkwardness haha. I don't think my shyness will ever go :P I think a lot of woman get a bit flustered when complimented, we don't know what to do!

      I hope you get enough sleep tonight! I'm a really light sleeper, it's frustrating as I can get up during the early hours and never get back to sleep. Also hope you have a fantastic year ahead! xxx
