So this year has been filled with fun personal achievements and blog achievements and other bits and pieces. I thought I would take the time to share the what I have been upto you click through the images for the relevant posts.
Paris with Lyzi
I ventured to paris with lyzi and met some new friends will, and kelly, first time in about seven years since I have be abroad lots, of fun.
Confidence to outfit blog
Finally finding the confidence to blog outfit photos, this year I did loose weight ( which i might of gained back due to christmas) but I finally found some confidence to share photos of myself on here.
I opened my little online Esty Illustration shop, which i am so happy with it is filled with lots of bearded men
I was interviewed and featured in the beautiful Lion Heart magazine, I felt so honoured to be asked.
I was also featured and illustrated for Aesthetic magazine
My own space
I finally got a little space to work in from home it has been a while since I have had my own space to work in
New hair do
Nothing major but i think it marks a turning point in me.
Sharing D.I.Y creations
I thought this year I should share a few D.I.Y creations my moccasins were a massive hit on Tumblr and on pinterest, I still get emails about them now.
I decided this year I would spend time with my family, its the most important thing in the world to me, If it wasn’t for their support, I wouldn’t have the courage to do all the creative things i do and be myself. In February I visited my littlest brother who now loves down in Swansea, i miss him like crazy.
Awards and blog meet ups
This year i was nominated in the category of best lifestyle blog for the cosmo blog awards, I didn’t win but I had such a lovely time meeting bloggers and some great people.
I shared with you lovely lot some of my favourite recipes, I do love my food and drink, I think next year i might share some more.
A blog milestone
I reached 2,000 GFC readers over here on this little piece of internet i am so grateful for your on going support, its nice to see my little blog grow.
Designed a capsule collection with james lakeland also this was my first blogger event, (not really an event) but this meant a lot to me. Really helped me push myself out of my comfort zone.
Working with wonderful Businesses
This year I joined forces with selfridges to illustrate and create blog post for them, I really love working with them, and apparently my illustrated blog posts are a hit in the office (proud moment)
This year was wonderful getting to work with one of my oldest friends and her amazingly talented friend ( I am yet to share with you a little collab we did) but in July I was asked to work with them styling and providing the jewellery for their first collection for their company House of 1923 jenni also created me the beautiful embellished jacket I wore to the cosmo blog awards.
Sharing my blog
This is a major thing for me, i finally told my family that I run this little blog, after four years of blogging I finally got round to telling them when I was nominated for the Cosmo blog awards. In turn they told all their friends and my brothers and sisters told their so now I can’t escape people knowing. Its a very strange feeling after Four years of keeping this my secret outlet for my family to know but they have been so supportive. I finally made a facebook page for my blog
Last but not least getting to hang out with this lovely lady lyzi from being little , Paris was an awesome trip, she makes me laugh ( haha we aren’t in a relationship totes awks) but she is pretty awesome.
In other things of 2012
I finally entered the world of technology and got an iphone, I reached a year in my job in october which to me is a big thing. I had my heart broken but I am happy, I dropped two dress sizes, making new friends from all over the world, travelled to bristol for the first time this month. Sent lots of illustrations off around the world, first time in 5 years I haven’t visited cornwall this will change. Reached 2,000 twitter followers, meeting lots of lovely bloggers.
I also had some fab sponsors and was invited to some lovely blogger meet ups and thank you to all the lovely shops, independent artists and creatives who have share their creations with me to share wit you lovely lot.
