New Year...New Memories.

Thursday, 1 January 2015

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

2014 has been a good year to me. I've had some great new experiences in my work life, I've learnt more about myself as a person and who i want to be. Even though it flew by, It has taught me a lot.
I've lost people this year that have meant a lot to me and it's been a difficult time in my family. However I feel like we are all now closer than ever. I'm blessed with everyone i have around me and i am as thankful as ever. It is important to remember to enjoy the time you have with your loved ones and friends, because at any moment things could change.

2015 is going to be a new chapter for a lot of people I know. We will be finishing up college and could potentially be in 9 months time, moving out and going to University. There are defiantly some exiting but scary decisions to be made in the next few months but i am ready for it!

Instead of making a New Years Resolution, I've decided that with each day of this year, I will write a memory into this little book i found (Urban Outfitters). Its a 5 year memory book and there is space to write a small paragraph of each day of whatever year that may be. My goal is to write something positive here each day. Sometimes it's easier to dwell on the negatives, so buy doing this there will always be something happy to take from that day. My family and i have also decided to make this 'Memory Jar'. Any fun or happy, random memory from that day, or about the weekend, write it down on a little note and place it in the jar. At the end of this year we will open it and be able to reminisce over the year.
By doing this it just promotes positivity which is so important in life.
It would be great to hear what your resolutions are and whether you would create a memory jar?

Sending blessings and happiness for the New Year.

A Day in Pictures - London

Before Christmas I went on a day trip to London to see Edward Scissor Hands modern dance ballet. It was a fantastic show! It runs until the 11th January at Sadler's Wells, so there is still time to catch it!

When i arrived in London, I headed over to Soho. I took the photograph of the trees in Soho Sq. It was a cold, winter morning and it was just the perfect photo!

I had to go to the Wardour News to pick up some fashion magazines. They have a huge collection there so I would recommend going there if you're in need of any arts, fashion and lifestyle mags you wouldn't usually find in other shops.

I sat down in Gail's Artisan Bakery for a cheese and chive scone, which was delicious. Looking at the photo makes me want another one!

After the show, we wondered down Islington to find somewhere for some drinks. We found Cafe Pistou. A beautiful little tapas bar, with lovely servers and a great vibe. I had a Greygoose on the rocks and admired their decor, I had to take a picture of the hexagonal light 'shades'.

We then moved onto Moro for dinner, a very highly rated restaurant. I wasn't that pleased with the menu, they only had a Christmas menu, so unfortunately it wasn't the best meal I have had out.

The day as a whole, was great day out! I do love little random trips to London. :-)

Happy New Year
