A Year In The Life Of...

Evening dolls!

As 2011 is quickly coming to an end i thought i would put up a 'year in the life of' post to go through the things i have been doing in my life through the past year, both in my personal and blogging life! 
January saw me go to London for IMATS with 2 of my favourite girls in the world Carla and Paula. We spent the weekend shopping, eating, drinking yummy cocktails, meeting up with friends and of course IMATs. It was such a great start to the year and one of my favourite weekends. I also bought a couple of products from the MAC Stylishly Yours & Cham Pale Collections. I also went to see Usher in concert! Yeahhh man! 
February was the month that saw me go and see Jason Derulo in Leeds and also meet Shontelle which i blogged about here. It was definitely a highlight of the month! I also got some gorgeous Valentines Day goodies from my wonderful boyfriend. 
March was the month of my Birthday and saw me turn the grand old age of 22! Around the time of my birthday i went to see Westlife in Liverpool and Justin Bieber in Manchester for a couple of days away each time! Aside from this, at the end of the month I handed in my dissertation at University, Finished 4 years of Uni life and also flew across to Dublin in Ireland for a city break with my Boyfriend for a lovely few days. All in all, it was a busy month! Definitely one of the greatest months of the year!
April was quite a quiet month as it was officially my Summer holidays! I attended the Gentry Grooming Event in Manchester where i brushed shoulders with some of the people from Hollyoaks and spent the night with some truly amazing friends! Blogging wise i reviewed the wonderful Sigma brush kit and also showed you the contents of my Louis Vuitton Handbag!
May was a busy month blogging wise! It was the month that i joined Handpicked Media which was a real achievement for me and my blog! I was also sent and reviewed the first ever Glossybox (I cant believe how much they have taken off in just a few months!). I went to Tenerife for a week with my boyfriend for a last minute week in the sun then came home and attended my Uni ball! 
June saw me jet off for a week in the sun to the Greek island of Kos with my girls! One of the best weeks of my life! Sun, sea and cocktails with my bestest friends made for a truly brilliant time and lots of memories were made! It was also the month that Sleek MakeUP brought out not one but two make up collections aswell as the Oh So Special palette and i showed love for drugstore brands such as Jelly Pong Pong, mememe and Eyeko.
July 
In July i acquired a gorgeous new Michael Kors Watch (for the bargain price of £54!), i also showed you a couple of my new, summery purchases. I also reviewed the lovely Xen Tan Dark Lotion Absolute Luxe which is a fake tan that i still absolutely love and showed you my Top 5 MAC Lipsticks. Oh and i GRADUATED! 
August was the month that i went down to London for a couple of days for my little sisters 21st Birthday. She didnt have a clue what we had in store for her and packed so much into a couple of days! We went to see The Lion King in the West End, went to the Hard Rock Cafe, had a champagne flight on the London Eye, sipped lots of cocktails and even went to the Ice Bar! It was such a super night away! Blogging wise, I divulged into my Illamasqua Cream Blush Collection (which are still my favourite blushes FYI!) and showed you my first Week In Photos. I also went to Liverpool over night to celebrate my 6 year anniversary with my boyfriend! August was the busiest month blogging wise with a whopping 22 posts! 
September was the month that saw me start my first ever full time job after finishing University and saw me juggling my blogging, work and social life for the first time! It was difficult but i still managed 20 posts in my first month of employment! I attended the Illamasqua Theatre Of The Nameless event in London and met some wonderful fellow bloggers! It was a time of beauty boxes and i blogged about both the Boudoir Prive and Glossybox beauty boxes. 
October was the month that my little bloggy turned 2! Aside from this, I went to see Katy Perry in concert in Newcastle and partied Geordie Shore style afterwards! Me and my friends rented such a gorgeous apartment for the night and had such a fab time away! I also blogged all things Inglot, MAC, Sheer Cover and Lush.
Novemeber saw me attend not one, not two but three concerts! I was lucky enough to go and see Tinie Tempah, Britney Spears and Rihanna all live in concert! Absolutely amazing! I also made the trip down to London for the Aussie-Versary VIP Party with a few lovely ladies! I also blogged about this wonderful River Island Cardigan and treated myself to this gem. 
So here we are, December! Its been such a whirlwind year! December was the ultimate month of beauty boxes! With me reviewing the Carmine, Joliebox and the Christmas Glossybox. I attended the store opening of the beautiful Illamasqua Store in Leeds which was an absolute pleasure to be invited to! I met up with some wonderful bloggers, drunk champers and given a very generous goodie bag. Christmas was spent with my lovely family and i blogged about my Christmas Gifts! Myself and Carla also went to Milton Keynes to stay with Paula and try on some beautiful Wedding Dresses! 

So there we have it! A year in my life! I am really looking forward to what 2012 has in store for me, both through blogging and in my personal life! I hope you enjoyed reading and thank-you if you got this far! 

Thank you so much to each and every one of you for following, reading and commenting as always. It has been a pleasure sharing my life with you all and i enjoy blogging now, just as much, if not more than when i first started!

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year.
