Hello 2017!

22 January 2017

Hey, 2017! First blog post of the year and all that jazz!

I'm not sure if we can still say happy new year as we're 3 weeks in, however in all honestly I wrote this post in the first week of the year I've been sitting on it for ages... 

I've contemplated writing this post because I'm all honestly I'm in a transitional place right now. I wanted to make this post about what I learnt in 2016 and a general recap of the year but in all honesty, I absolutely hated 2016. Yes, there were good parts but for the most part, I wasn't happy. So fuck dwelling on the shittest year ever and let's move the fuck on...

Life update
Firstly - I'm newly single and that's not because of the ex BF was a monster - the complete opposite he was perfect however not perfect for me.... 
Secondly - I'm glad to be over 2016 as it was a F**ked up year but I still feel like the 2016 Michelle is starting to creep into 2017 Michelle.
Thirdly - I'm recovering from the cold/flu since New Years so I'm only really getting into the new year now.
And last but not least work has been non-stop since we touched down.

So in a nutshell 2017 has been crazy so far and we're hitting our fourth week!

The contemplation for writing this post was because, in all honesty, I'm pretty much meh.... I'm neither happy or sad I'm just mediocre. And I don't know whether it's a good thing or not. I have my days where I'm super chill then there are days where I'm down but 'ok' and then I have the days where I have too much time to think and that's when I turn to Rachet TV to simmer the brain!

New outlook
I'm looking forward to getting stuck into the blog properly this year. I know I say this year every year but I really want to do more with the blog. I want to start by being more honest and allowing my personality to show rather than the pretty pictures. I look back at when I first started and how I honest I used to be. I miss that.
I'm looking forward to embracing the single the Michelle and letting her shine throughout VK. And I'm also looking forward to new experiences within myself. I'm turning the big 30 this year and I've been dreading it since I turned 28 but now I'm actually looking forward to it. I've achieved so much in the last 5 years and I want to celebrate that.

So that's my little catch-up and to say Happy new year you beautiful people! Let's keep in touch in 2017 x

And in celebration of the New Year here's a little something I put together earlier...

  2. These are awesome goals! I believe 2016 was a crazy year for everyone but 2017 will definitely be the glow up year!

  3. THE BOOTS definitely caught my eye. You look smashing and fierce. You seem like you are quiet a strong independent lady so am sure being newly singly will not change that. Go for what your heart desires and make this year count.x


  4. You look amazing! I hope 2017 will be a fabulous year for you. x
