Reflecting back on my fabulous year being 21

Hey everyone.

So today is my 22nd birthday and I’m feeling pretty excited about it. I thought this would be a fun post and give me a chance to reflect on my year. This year has seemed to fly by but I’ve made some amazing memories.

I graduated.

Even though I realised teaching wasn’t what I wanted to do, I was super proud of myself. I made a grown up decision and I made it through.

I watched the Lion King show in London.

It was so spectacular and I absolutely loved it. (The whole trip was amazing).

I started my blog.

Even though I was super nervous at first I took the plunge and created my blog.

I got glasses.

I could actually see clearly for the first time in a while (aye).

I met the love of my life

This is Mozzarella.

I went to a zoo and sneakily fed some ducks.

Had such a fun time wandering around the zoo and enjoying our picnic of halloumi and falafels.

I made a duck friend.

I practised my makeup skills.

I actually went on some rides when I went to Drayton Manor.

I’m super scared of rides but I managed to suck it up and go on a few (even if I did scream on the pirate ship the whole time). May have spent nearly the whole day on the rapids but it was so so fun.

I tried out a lot of new restaurants (and gained some favourites).

Is there anything better than good food?

I visited New York City.

New York was always my dream destination to visit – getting to see it in real life was absolutely amazing.

Had some really fun nights out.

Had a fabulous time making cocktails at a cocktail masterclass.

Mastered the art of day drinking.

Continued on my obsession with fancy dress.

Had my first holiday with my boyfriend.

I went to London Comic Con.

Had a fabulous time and a really cool costume.
