I wonder what 2016 has in store? I am not one for New Years resolutions but if you are, good luck with them, and may this coming year may bring you whatever you desire. Its a new year and it can be a new start if you want it.

Me? I’m just going to continue on the path I set myself a few years back, keeping fit by running regularly and making sure I do not gain back the 6.5 stone by counting calories 6 days a week plus making sure I keep the balance of my work and home life on the side of my home and family. I also always aim to travel somewhere new with my partner every year. I have a new challenge in the form of a part time marketing job, I will continue to run my Etsy shop selling vintage and of course post all my style blogs here!

What adventures are you aiming for in 2016? I would love to know.

New Years Eve thoughts

I’m not one for new years resolutions as I’ve broken far too many in the past but I do believe in challenging & pushing yourself and my hopes for 2015 are just to continue in the same direction.

I’ve worked so hard this year in my fitness and trying to continue a career while settling a new home/family. 2014 has been a great year – Russ and I bought our first house together, our relationship has gone from strength to strength, we travelled and we had so much fun.

I started this blog while writing some great paid blogs for others and I ran 3 times a week every week. My body changed as did my mind and I’m so happy with the results.

Our kids are all happy and our life is now full of potential, something it wasn’t before. Each year I wonder if this loved up feeling will wane but its still going strong and long may it continue! It is a wonderful feeling to feel someone adores you, is totally wrapped up in you, thinks you are the sexiest and most gorgeous woman around…and thats how he makes me feel.

Life isn’t easy, I’m not totally where I want to be, but I consider myself very lucky to have all this. Yes, I worked for it, but I am grateful and will never take it for granted…

Have a wonderful night tonight whatever you are doing and heres to 2015!
