2017 Round Up | My Year In Pictures


Hello 2018! Last year was a bit of a whirlwind for me, and I have no doubts thats 2018 will be even busier so I’m determined to organise myself a bit better this time around. I have to admit my blog was totally neglected last year, I didn’t really focus on growing my social media following and to be honest, everything else just took over, but thats not to say it was a bad year! I wanted to round up 2017 just to document exactly how much I actually achieved to make myself feel a little better about the lack of blog posts (lets ignore youtube for now!)

JANUARY – we found & booked our wedding venue! We had originally planned to get married abroad but after lots of back and fourth we decide the UK was logistically going to be a lot easier. We searched venues nearby and thats when we came across the beautiful Notley Abbey, and like that we had our venue.

FEBRUARY – we went to Amsterdam for the weekend which I’d booked as Robbie’s Christmas present, obviously it was a bonus that I got to enjoy it too! Whilst we were away we also got the call to say we’d sold our house, the challenge started to find a new one!

MARCH – I went to the Far East with my new Jewellery team visiting China and Korea which was amazing! I started working with Biscuiteers on a series of wedding related blog posts which you can read here & here, warning – may cause hunger!

APRIL – We found a house and our offer was accepted!!

MAY –  Celebrated my Birthday in style when Robbie whisked me away to Bath for the weekend, what a beautiful city!

JUNE – I invested in a wedding planner from Etsy as I had no idea where to start or what I needed to do! You can pick this one up here.

JULY – We went for our first wedding planning day at our venue which kick started lots of ideas. It was time for a very messy weekend in Liverpool for my friend Emma’s Hen Do which I’d helped plan – what a wild weekend – followed by moving house the day after we got back!

AUGUST – We celebrated Robbie’s birthday and watched one of my besties tie the knot, what a beautiful day with all of my favourite people!

SEPTEMBER – We went to the South of France for a week, ate our body weight in bread and celebrated our 13 year anniversary – its true what they say, time flies when you’re having fun! I also got to meet some of my fellow Sweet Squad girls at my first Candy Kittens brunch.

OCTOBER – We booked our wedding photographer and florist, a big fat tick for wedding planning!

NOVEMBER – I started trying on wedding dresses, 3 shops later and I’ve booked back in at shop 1 to try on “the one I can’t stop thinking about”. Will keep you all updated!

DECEMBER – Drank and ate wayyyy too much, celebrated Christmas and New Years with my friends & family, what a way to end a wonderful year. Now to 2018 – the most exciting year of our lives yet!

I’m so excited for 2018, I am determined to blog more and keep this up as I really do love creating content! If there’s anything in particular you’d like to read, please let me know if the comments below!

Happy New Year everyone!
