Over the year, the blogging world has introduced me to some incredible people and even more incredible opportunities. It’s only fair I do a round-up and say thank you right? I am so grateful for every opportunity this tiny little space on the internet has given me and I only started it as a place to document my 20s and its turned into something more. I always do stand by the fact I am always on the sidelines in this bloggersphere, still continuing for my love of writing more than anything hence my post called ‘I Don’t Care‘. If I can experience a little more life whilst I do it, then why not.

Here goes…

London Fashion Week with Plus Minus Magazine

I’d always wanted to go to London Fashion Week and although I may not be much of a fashion blogger, I love fashion. UK designers are talented, daring and I was so glad I could experience homegrown talent in my own city. You can check out Plus Minus Magazine here, where I’m Features Editor. Feel free to send me an email on features@plusminusmagazine.com for all things London!

Traverse

I wasn’t sure if I was going to go to Traverse or not, but I managed to get a last minute ticket and its honestly one of the best decisions I’ve made. Travel blogging and travel bloggers are SO different from the realm of fashion and beauty. It’s interesting to hear everyone’s different reasons why they travel and how they travel which for me has more depth than a lipstick (which I still love too).

One of many glasses of wine at Traverse…

Sea and the City with Travelodge

I’d never been to Cornwall or that far South until I was asked to explore life outta London for the weekend. Cornwall is beautiful, breezy and there is SO much more to it than clotted cream and pasties. You can experience my #SeaAndTheCity travels here and here.

And if you’re after a good quality cabin bag, check out my review of the Cabin Zero backpack here.

A Night at Chocolate City

Not going to say much more on this one but this is possibly my highlight of 2017. 

Cooking with Grohe, Lee Kum Kee, Good Foods

I can’t cook but I love to eat and I love a challenge. This year I went to a cooking class with Grohe, eaten my fair share of Asian food and attempted to go meat-free. If this is the reason I haven’t lost any weight this year, I only have myself to blame. Not only that, I’ve been able eat my way through London with brunches at Four to Eight and solo dining at Pizza Union.

#OnTheLadder with Post Office Money

One of the biggest things I’ve done with this blog… sharing my story of how I got #OnTheLadder. 

Cheers to many more adventures, experiences and more LIFE in 2018!

To keep it short and sweet, THANK YOU. Thank you to these amazing brands, and to you all for reading this because I’m still not sure anyone does!

I don't know what to write here but I like travelling, Nando's and black hair dye. I am slowly compiling my memoirs...and a few musings along the way. ✈️

  1. I think it is an outstanding idea to look back at year’s end and to thank your brand sponsors and other collaborators and mention the events or places they invited you to. You did a good job here. Personally, I would enjoy that trip to Cornwall with its beautiful views of the sea, and I don’t mind if I do that while enjoying a clotted cream either.
