Happy New Year everybody! First things first – I am declaring 2017 the Year of Fun because 2016 just was not fun enough to my liking. Let’s not forget we only get one life…
Let’s do a quick recap of why 2016 wasn’t my happiest year:
20% politics, terrorism and war – basically the year the world lost the plot
5% loss of great artists
75% unbloggable personal crap
However there were some highs that I blogged about:
Going to Ibiza , it was so nice and so much fun!
Finding the perfect work dress
Spending 10 days in the sun with my mum
My best friend also had a second baby, one of my great friends got married, another is pregnant, all my girlfriends seem to be doing well, which is great but 2016 was lacking in fabulous, amazing moments. There were some lovely moments but could do better basically! I wanted to end 2016 on a high so yesterday, cheeks and I went for lunch at The Hoxton, one of my favourite places in London:
I wore my AMAZING new shoes from Air and Grace, which make me happy
Anyway 2016 is over! So here are my 17 goals/resolutions/hopes for 2017:
17 Things I’m going to aim to do/achieve in 2017 (it’s a very varied list!)
