2016 has been a weird one, what with Brexit, Donald Trump becoming president and all the legends that have passed away this year. Sometimes it’s nice to reflect on your year and what you have achieved. At the beginning of the year I got a promotion with in my job, I re-visited the island Tenerife which is where I was raised, I went to Leeds Festival for the first time which was an awesome experience, traveled South Africa for 3 weeks and I got engaged ( wooooo ) 

All in all I feel I have accomplished a lot this year and not forgetting I started blogging and created doorways and dresses which I have really loved sharing my experiences with you guys and will continue to do so in the new year.

So back to business, I shall talk a little bit about my engagement. We were coming to the end of the trip in South Africa and we had arrived in Langebaan, my boyfriend said we should go down to the beach with a bottle of champagne and talk about the highlights of our holiday. We went down to the beach where we originally spent our one year anniversary, so this beach will always have a place in my heart. So we sat down on my amazing bohemian round towel which I am a little obsessed about and we got to talking about our highlights and I really had no idea that he was going to propose to me. When he did I was very shocked, surprised, happy and just over the moon that he asked me to be his wife. I couldn’t wait to call everyone and tell them the amazing news that we were going to get married.

So although this year has been a strange one, it is one that I will remember and cherish for the rest of my life. I am looking forward to seeing what 2017 will bring and to start planning our wedding which will be over in South Africa so I am really looking forward to that.

I would love to hear about everyone else’s 2016, so just comment below and would be great to hear from you guys.
