2018: A year in review (pt. 2)

If you're just joining then thank you so much for visiting my blog! It will probably make more sense to read part 1 of this series first which you can do so by clicking here.

The second half of 2018 was equally as busy for me. I attended lots of blog events and had the opportunity to travel more.

I hope you enjoy!


Probably one of my favourite months of the year was July as I finallllly visited Vietnam. This is somewhere I had wanted to visit for years but, at the time, none of my friends were at the stage where they would want to go. Either they'd already been, were enjoying their careers and couldn't take enough time to enjoy it or that kind of trip just wasn't for them. Plus, I didn't have a guy in my life to travel with (no surprise there). So, I took the plunge and decided to go alone!

2018: A year in review (pt. 1)

So, I know I'm a few days late, I've been nursing a killer chest infection (Happy 2019 to me). I wanted to start 2019 first with a reflection of the past year. Firstly, Happy New Year! I can't actually believe we are in 2019 already. I feel like I blinked and 2018 was over but overall, it was a pretty amazing year for me.

I didn't actually realise just HOW much I did in 2018 before looking back through all of my pictures so I will be splitting this into two posts.

Here's part 1 of my 2018 in review. Grab a hot drink and lots of snacks - enjoy!


January for me was a bit of a blur. I have the worst memory when it comes to remembering significant things and dates/details, yet I seem to remember minor ridiculous things that I would never ever need to know. Anyone else, orrrr just me?

Blogmas #24: A-Z of Christmas

I thought I would end Blogmas on a fairly stereotypical post to round up this year's festivities. Here is my A-Z of Christmas!

Blogmas #23: Favourite Christmas snacks

Firstly, Merry Christmas Eve! I'm so excited for Christmas this year - I can't wait to just chill out with family.

I don't know about you but, for me, one of the best parts of Christmas is definitely the food. I especially love all of the festive snacks that are in the shops at this time of year.

Here are some of my favourite festive snacks...


- P a n n e t t o n e -

Pannettone is something I've had since I was a child. I do love the normal pannettone but the chocolate chip one is better than any. I've got such a sweet tooth so I love this.

For some reason I only seem to have this around Christmas time so it makes me feel so festive.

Blogmas #22: Dunham Massey's Christmas Lights Event

Last night I visited Dunham Massey for their Christmas Lights event. Set in the beautiful grounds, it was evident that a lot of hard work, time and effort had gone into organising this event as everywhere you turned was a festive themed light show.

It is really hard to show just how pretty this actually was by pictures as the pictures just do not do it justice. It would probably also help if I didn't drop my phone 12 times a day too but that's another story.



We arrived earlier than our booked slot so we enjoyed a hot drink in the cafe and a quick look around before it was time to start the trail. There was the cutest light tree by the cafe where guests could write a personal message and hang for others to read. I thought this was really cute - some of the messages were lovely!
