Why 2016 wasn't all bad...

Well 2016 has been eventful to say the least! And although it's been a terrible year in some aspects, it's also been pretty awesome. I'm feeling really positive and excited for this next year so I thought I'd end on a high and list a few things that made 2016 a good year. Bring on 2017, I've got a feeling it's gonna be a good'un! :)


  • I got to see some of my favourite bands live and discovered loads of great new bands to listen to
  • My mummy got married
  • I ticked off some of my bucket list by going on some awesome holidays and road trips including Paris and Marrakech
  • I found out that I'm gonna be an auntie and went to my sister's baby scan
  • I caught a Jigglypuff
  • I got my first tattoo finished (nearly 10 years later)
  • My school friends surprised me with a sausage dog cake and pressies for my birthday
  • My best friends surprised me with a spa day and afternoon tea for my birthday
  • I rekindled some friendships that I'm so grateful for
  • I learnt to do my eye makeup properly
  • Leonardo won an Oscar
  • I laughed every single day

Thanks for reading :)
What was your favourite bits of 2016?

  5. Leonardo won an Oscar! It's easy to forget the good parts when the bad parts are so widely advertised. For me, I got two jobs this year, improved my blog a lot, and lost weight in a healthy way. I had a pretty good year!

  26. My 2016 post makes me sound like a right negative nelly compared to yours, but to be fair, you did catch a Jigglypuff so it sounds like you've had a cracking time!

  27. There really were a lot of positives to 2016. It made me laugh when you classed finding a Jigglypuff as one of them though! LOL. The world really did go Pokemon crazy again last year :)
