See You Next Year!

So this is the end to 2013, I cant believe I am typing that already as it doesn’t seem 5 minutes ago that it was 2012 and a new year was beginning.  That said, like most 2013 has had had it highs and its lows for me and in many respects I am glad to see the back of it.

I started my blog back in January, the 23rd to be precise and there was no introductory post, well there was but I deleted it and turned it into an About Me page for my blog instead, it seemed to fit better there once  had got to grips with a whole new layout and being able to move things about, add things and so on, though even now I need help from those who are more in tune with HTML than I am.

All that aside I have really enjoyed being a blogger and blogging about things that I love, which on the whole tend to be what my posts are about.  I have been introduced to some fabulous brands since I started blogging, many of which I probably would have never used, come across or wanted to try and right now I am literally spoilt for choice with which face cream, moisturiser, mask, shampoo, bath product, foot cream, massage gel/oil and even perfume to use.  Before blogging, I tended to just buy anything I liked the look of from Boots or a supermarket, now I pay more attention to what my skin wants and needs, how I am feeling, what ingredients work and don’t work for me and so on and not forgetting the importance of an SPF

I have also been a bit more adventurous with my make-up, not quite the only natural look for me, I have braved a few more colours and shades though I still refuse to leave the house unless I am wearing mascara and have some lip balm in a pocket or in my bag.  I just need to master the art of eye-liner and I will be totally chuffed with myself and whilst everyone says practise makes perfect, patience is not one of my strong points.

Living in London I have been lucky enough to attend a few blogger events and a few blogger meet-ups which and even one or two events which were not designed for bloggers but in doing so I have met lots of lovely people whom I only knew beforehand on the screen - Kimberely, Becky, Claire, Emma, Bex, Kat, Grace, Olivia, Clare, Lisahh-Jayne, Sasha, Poppy, Natasha, Helen and probably many others whom I have totally forgot to name (please do remind me in a comment below)...  Hopefully I will get to meet many more of you in 2014 and see again those I have already met.

I don't make New Years Resolutions because I don't stick to them and even if I do find myself sticking to them, I get bored and go out of my way to break them.  I did however complete my 50 book reading challenge which I am super proud of doing! On that note, all that is left for me to say is:
