What does 2017 mean for blogging?

2016 was meant to be the year that I put a lot of effort into my blog and really made it into something. In some ways I feel like I've definitely done that, I'm really pleased with a lot of the content I've published however I wish I'd made more and in all honesty I wish my followers had grown a little bit more. I know blogging isn't all about the numbers, but I do think it's important to grow so you know that people are reading and enjoying your content. I think 2016 was quite a strange year for bloggers and creators, as Instagram blogging & YouTubers seems to be more popular than ever, leaving us more "traditional" bloggers in a bit of a weird place. I did a Twitter poll earlier on this year around this subject and I was surprised by the results, for the first day people were answering with 'I no longer read or follow blogs' but right at the last minute the results flipped and it finished with 74% people saying they still did actively read blogs. I know that personally I do still read blogs but I find myself on YouTube for longer and more often. 

I'd be really interested to know the thoughts from my own readers on this subject plus what blog posts you enjoy the most from me? Is it fashion, travel, baking, beauty or something else you've seen me talk about? Let me know! P.S Happy new year!

Pastels in Winter

Hello! After 24 days, I'm back. I know it's a cliche but I cannot believe how quickly the year has gone, my New Years Eve blog post does not feel like it was over 365 days ago. I think this year has been one of my favourite yet. I got to go on a couple of holidays, made some really big personal achievements and spent a lot of time with my friends & family, one of my closest friends even got married! 

Over the weekend the sun was out for a few hours so I seized the day and finally got round to doing a 'style' blog post. I've had all of these things in my wardrobe for a while and so I thought I'd brighten up a cold January day with a bit of colour. I really love this pink corduroy skirt by Lazy Oaf, the heart shaped pockets just make it a little bit more of a unqiue piece, and because more is always more with me I've coordinated it with a pink gingham choker with jewels and charms... It's not for everyone I know. As it's super cold in the UK right now, I wore this outfit with my staple grey coat and my thickest woolly tights when I popped out later that day, as let's be honest it's not even nearly warm enough to start going out without a coat on (#GrandmaAlert).

The Ultimate Christmas Party Outfit

I absolutely adore fashion, but I rarely often follow the trends as in all honesty I find a lot of them to be very unflattering on my body shape. So I describe my style as a toddler going to a party. I love sparkly things, I love to be comfortable and I love to dress up in a party dress... If you know me IRL and are ever stuck for a birthday present, just go to Monsoon Kids as I'd happily have them all all of the accessories in there. This ASOS number is the ultimate party dress, my friend spotted it in the ASOS 'new in', section showed it to me and I couldn't stop thinking about it. However I was trying to be good and not buy any more clothes as I knew Christmas was coming up, but once I had seen it'd gone out of stock a few days later I was honestly gutted. I thought I'd never be able to wear it but then one lunchtime I noticed my size was back in stock and I bought it within seconds. Now this dress is finally mine and it's the perfect dress for Christmas work parties, Christmas day or my annual 'friendmas', and we lived happily ever after...
