2015 was the year that...

Before I get started, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and hope you have a great NYE whatever you're up to! Tonight I'll be heading to a friend's as normal for a few quiet drinks, lots of food and a spot of Cranium, Articulate and Cards Against Humanity. 

Becky from The Little Blog of Beauty published her 2015 roundup post with this title this morning and I loved the format of it, so thank you Becky for inspiring me!

2015 was the year that...

... *warning soppy statement* I became a Mrs, marrying my soulmate and best friend who I've been with for 11 years. The wedding day was truly one of the best days of my life.

... I also watched a number of other close friends get married, which was so heart warming and magical to see.

... I realised I actually do want to have a baby one day, but I'm not ready yet and having tokophobia (a fear of pregnancy and childbirth) to get over, it will take time. However just acknowledging that I do want to be a Mum at some point in my life is a big thing for me.

... my skin was the clearest it's been for years (cue dancing around like a madwoman in celebration), thanks to almost completely cutting dairy from my diet. You can read more about this in my post here.

... I got fed up of moaning about my wobbly bits and started doing toning exercises every other day. Next year... cardio?! 

... I fell in love with Italy...

... and thanks to Italy realised that I could probably eat fresh pasta in some form every single day for evermore!

... blogging went a bit awry. I began to struggle to keep up and find the time to work on it. I gradually started losing my love for it and so before I completely fell out of love, took a (mostly unplanned) break for months. I then focused on my personal life and really enjoyed it to be honest. However it did make me realise that I can't completely live without it.

... I tried pole dancing for the first time. Spoiler alert - I'm not very good at it!!

... I actually liked a Justin Bieber song. Ok I lie. I've liked every song he's released from his new album so far. I even want to listen to the whole album on Spotify (insert wide eyed emoji here).

... I pretty much filled in my brows every day. Cripes.

... I finally tried some beauty brands that I've wanted to for aaaaages, such as Oskia, Chanel, Hourglass, Kiko and Ole Henriksen.

... I became obsessed with Pretty Little Liars. Finding out who A was took over my life a little... oops!

I would love to hear some of your "2015 was the year that...", so please do leave them in the comments below!

  1. Your wedding day statement brought a little tear to my eye Sasha - lovely! I'm with you on the brow thing and also the blogging break but I'm so sorry I can't stand Justin Bieber!! :) Try the cardio - it's a proper trip - I sound like an old raver don't I (which is essentially what I am!). Happy New Year! xx

    1. Awww that's so sweet of you! Haha don't apologise for not liking Justin Bieber, I personally don't like him but I can't stop singing his new songs! I really must get into cardio, I want those feel good endorphins haha. Happy New Year Jenny xx

  2. Oh I'm glad you liked my post and that it inspired you. I wasn't even intending to do anything like that I was just trying to think back over some of the things that happened and it kind of just came together. Happy New Year lovely! x

  4. Aw sounds like a lovely year all round! 2015 felt like a bit of a non-year for me, not much happened, although I did pass my driving test and buy my first car so that was a proud moment :D
