New Years Eve has always been much a do about nothing for me. I stress about plans & outfits only for the evening to go downhill. There was the time I was back in
, the anticipation of a big night out with my childhood best friends; it would have to be epic right? No I was ill for almost the whole trip & had to go to the doctors twice. Then there was the time I took a Tylenol to rid a headache before a fun party. Only to wake up at 2 am to realize it was Tylenol PM, Happy New year to me. England
Until this year my expectations were always so high for the night, it’s a new year with so much promise & change. Then the ball drops, the nights not how I imagined it & my life’s still the same. This New Years Eve I was content just relaxing with no expectations & the chill night doing little was perfect.
The past year I have had my share of ups & downs. I unfortunately missed my childhood best friends wedding & the crazy cat lady in me was heart broken at the passing of my dear
Brooklyn. Then there was some fun; the soda addict I am I was in heaven at the World of Coke. I visited Salem MA & Boston in October, im in LOVE. I spent my 30th birthday in Vegas with fabulous friends; my Mum gave me her Gucci watch I have been eyeing since I was 13 & my dear friend Rachel gave birth to the sweetest little girl, Brianna who I adore.

Most importantly I struggled to find myself; I felt like I didn’t belong where I am personally, professionally & geographically. However, I learnt about living with intention & have been inspired by so many stories in my blogging & everyday life that I am slowly defining who I am & creating the life I want.
I can’t wait to see who I become this year & hope my 30’s are filled with love & laughter.
