Good Things in 2016

Whilst it may be easy to look back at all the negative things that happened in 2016, I'd prefer to focus on the positives and think about all the great things in my 2016; the events that I hope will continue into 2017.
I've accepted that my mum is my best friend this year because we spend so much time together and, quite frankly, I get along better with her than with anyone else. Don't get me wrong, I love my friends and school mates, but my mum outranks everybody as we are just two peas in a pod.

Money was definitely a focus of 2016, in a good way: I'm a good saver and have saved a lot this year, and shopped wisely, in order to have a good chunk of money to spend travelling in 2017.

Whilst my mum is my BFF, my other chums have been amazing this year and I love them all to pieces - we've had midnight movie campouts and Proms on the school field, and every memory I treasure.

Something we all experienced together was results day; perhaps my best day due to the intense emotions and absolute relief upon opening that envelope, running upstairs and telling my mum my scores - I was over the moon with my results and they proved that working hard pays off.

2016 was definitely the year of 'not giving a f**k' about what people think and my friends helped with that so much - who cares if the people who think they're 'popular' aren't exactly my cup of tea, or that writing a blog is lame; I love it, and that's all that matters.

2016: the year of self love. I've learnt to accept my body, my mind and everything in between, and to love it all. I'm not a skinny girl, or a plus-size one either, but I'm happy being somewhere in between.

I love interiors and have finally been able to begin redecorating my bedroom space so it's exactly where I want it to be; calm, homely but also quite minimal and chic.

Travel is always important to me and this year I travelled to Sicily, Birmingham and Mykonos, all of which I loved, however, strangely, Birmingham was my favourite, and I plan on venturing to at least 3 new cities this year (especially because it's Uni-visiting season!).

What are your favourite memories from 2016?
