LIFESTYLE: An ode to 2015

2015 bestnine

Wow can you believe we're at the end of 2015?! It's been an insane year, am I right?
So much has happened, both good and bad, but it's certainly made for a year I'll never forget. 

So in 2015 I:

Bought house and fully refurbished it
Finished working on a TV documentary for work that was aired on Channel 5
Met real life bloggers and made new friends
Attended the final Bradford family wedding
Undertook some amazing blog collaborations
Took a new job, then lost that job
Travelled to Turkey and Amsterdam
Announced we are having a baby

It's been a good year all in all. Don't get me wrong, I've had my ups and downs, and certainly the last couple of months have been really difficult and somewhat overwhelming at times. But I'm thankful. I'm lucky to have an amazing husband by my side, who sticks with me in everything. I have some amazing friends, some old, some new, and although this year has tested friendships, the ones that were meant to be are still solid. I've had some amazing support here on this blog, and taking it to lifestyle (and parenting soon) has really changed my whole outlook on blogging, and connected me with some brilliant bloggers (and friends) and some fantastic brands. 

So what about you? What have been the highlights of your 2015?

And can I just add I'm totally loving seeing everyone's #2015bestnine on twitter and insyagram! Such a cute way to snapshot your year!
