Happy New Year, guys! I, myself, am a little sad to see 2012 pass by. The second half of my year has been absolutely wonderful. It's been a year of serious change for me, but change for the better and has truly been my happiest year in the past 21 I've lived through. I've met some amazing human beings and feel as if I've improved in myself and grown in confidence, which was little to none at the start of the year. I'm hoping 2013 can only be better, although I'm a little terrified as I have no idea where I'll be by the summertime after I've graduated! Eek! Time for an adventure!

I spent my New Year's Eve at Street Feast which was hosted under a bridge on Old Street with an array of fairy lights, winter cocktails, delicious nibbles and some live jazz music. We then trekked to Camden and trawled through bars there for the rest of the night. I was in the best of company with some of my closest friends and we managed to get very merry! I wore this dress I've had since last Christmas but it's been waiting to make an appearance outside of my wardrobe. As you may know, I have a little obsession with flapper girls of the 1920's, all thanks to my addiction to Boardwalk Empire. Last night, I was attempting to inject a little showgirl glamour into my outfit and teamed it with a paisley, fringed kimono and a faux fur jacket.

I understand my blogging is a little sparse nowadays, simply because I no longer have the hours to spare. Blogging will always come second to my degree and my job, and now I'm in my final year the pressure is truly on and I'm struggling to juggle all three. I'm even contemplating giving up blogging all together this year to maybe take a little pressure off. I'm still undecided.

  9. You look so pretty, 1920s is exactly what crossed my mind when I saw you! I don't think you should give up blogging, just make sure there's no pressure to do it! Maybe when you have a few spare moments you can snap a few pictures and post them, it doesn't have to be a chore :)
