Oh Hello 2015...

Well here it is... 2015. Welcome, welcome and a Happy New Year to you.

Yes, I know that I am posting this pretty soon into the New Year, but I figured you will all be fully of minced pies, possibly consumed a little too much alcohol and have had your mind numbed by Christmas TV... So here we are reading something fresh to get you excited for 2015 - hopefully.

So this year I have decided I am not going to set New Year's Resolutions...I have experienced how much things can change in one day, let alone in 12 months, so this year I am setting myself goals/a bucket list for 2015. If anyone wants to help me achieve these, fancies an adventure, is up for a challenge, or just wants a laugh please let me know...

1. Lose a stone and tone up
2014 has seen me lose 3 stone, drop nearly 3 dress sizes and completely changed my body confidence. This year I am heading back to Slimming World with the aim of losing another stone and joining a gym to tone up...

Goodbye 2014...

We are getting to the end of 2014 so I thought I would take a few moments to reflect on the year and share these with you. A lot has happened in 2014 for me, with a hell of a lot of changes but I cannot believe how happy I am am, so here we go...

1. Final year at Uni/Graduating Well this was a roller-coaster and a half but I did it! Final year has been and gone, my time at Hallam is officially over (sob) and I have recently celebrated my graduation. I cannot thank my family and friends (especially Anna and Cact) for helping me through this year, the laughter, the uncontrollable sobbing, the late night library sessions and the ghost in our apartment. It was a tough year but so so so good.
2. Entering the "REAL WORLD" I am so so so lucky to have landed myself an incredible job with a fabulous company and the best team I could ever ask for. I LOVE MY JOB. I even love Mondays... I know, right? So good! 7 months in and I am one happy Chick!
3. Shrunk With a hell of a l…

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Not to panic anyone but CHRISTMAS IS LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AWAY!!!!!

Compose yourself.
Anyone else struggling with the Christmas shopping this year? I feel like I have left everything far too late, everyone else has been doing their Christmas shopping since October and me, well I started 2 weeks ago (aka still desperately online shopping now). How are we meant to know what to buy people? Short of buying things solely from a list I have no ideas for anyone this year!
But I am looking forward to Christmas (just not the shopping), here's my run down of the top things this Chick loves at Christmas time:
1. Spending time with the family
2. Singing Christmas carols

3. Drinking... Mulled wine, tea, Malibu, I love it all!

4. FOOD. Enough said.

5. Presents - I prefer giving them and seeing peoples reactions!

6. Snow... I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

7. Christmas films - Elf, The Holiday, Love Actually, etc.

8. Christmas Jumpers/Festive wear

9. Boxing Day... Its my second Christmas Day!

10. The New…
