Life highlights of twenty fifteen:
Along with my birthday came a surprise visit to Paris from my sister and parents. I had wanted to re-visit Paris for along time and after my plan to go away with my friends for my birthday fell through, my sister took it upon herself to take me away to the city of love.
Stretching out birthday celebrations, I ticked off one amazing restaurant off my bucket list and the day I met one of my favourite blogger friends. Honey and I went for post-birthday celebrations, the day a truly amazing friendship blossomed over the love of good food and great champagne.
Twenty fifteen also marked the year I finished my second year of my undergrad studying Biochemistry. It was far from an easy year, as I had transferred universities (to my first choice university!) but made some life long friends at the same time – so it was a definite win-win!
As summer came, so did my contract on my old place. It was time to say goodbye to my favourite little luxury pad and move onto a bigger and better home. 108 will always hold some significance to me.
On returning home, my little Welsh Sec A came back into my care. After having sold him on to a home a year prior to his return, the lady who owned him couldn’t look after him anymore and he came back into my care. I knew that I couldn’t keep him, so I had him back in order to sell him on again to a perfect home. I still miss him, but i’m glad I got the chance to have a whole month with him again.
Not long after, I fell off whilst riding and got concussion. The first time that has ever happened, so it was definitely an experience but it certainly hasn’t stopped me from riding. A week after my recovery I was due to fly out to Canada to attend my only cousin on my dad’s side’s wedding. A memorable time where all the family reunited for the first time in so many years, but i’m so glad she has found love with her childhood sweetheart. Whilst being in Vancouver, we had impromptu plans to visit Toronto and New York City too. Seeing Niagara falls in Toronto was one of the best moment of my life I managed to tick off another thing off my bucket list, along with visiting the big apple.
Blog Highlights of twenty fifteen:
Fresh And Fearless saw the new year in with a fresh new simplistic look. All thanks to the lovely Serena at Pretty Wild Things. If you need a new design for 2016, I would definitely recommend her!
I had wanted to play host for a while, after attending so many blogger events. So I took it upon myself to reconnect with bloggers I had not seen for a while, and got the chance to meet bloggers I had wanted to meet for a long time by hosting my very own event.
F&F was hot for press in twenty fifteen too, being featured in a Bournemouth magazine for Bournemouth’s Budding Bloggers, also a two page fashion feature in a magazine sharing my advice on men’s fashion.
Fresh And Fearless had its first invites to press days as a fashion blogger – a huge achievement for me personally, not to mention the million events too. I don’t even want to imagine the amount of bubbles i’ve consumed over twenty fifteen alone through blogging!
Twenty fifteen also marked the most restaurant reviews I have done since Fresh And Fearless begun. Following with an increased about on fashion posts and skincare, one of my new years resolutions for twenty fifteen – which I have successfully achieved. Another was to incorporate travel into my blog, which has taken off like a storm. However, let twenty sixteen be the year that I improve my travel section.
