Pictures Of 2013!

Hello, last year I did this post, and it was so fun looking back! So I thought I would do it again :)


 This year my life had many ups and downs to say! I had a pretty rough start, ended up in hospital and having to take nearly two months off work. I got bored out of my mind! Then once back at work, I went out, brought a car, practically moved in with my boyfriend, saw Mcfly Again(!) threw my boyfriend and niece a joint birthday party :) I watched my Mum & Dad renew there vows and GOT A NEW JOB! We got our beautful cat Daisy and I grew closer to my Boyfriend's niece :)
Here's a few snaps from my year. 

Happy New Year

Lots Of Love,

I was sitting at my desk on evening when I came across this post from Bex's blog. I couldn't help but relate.

Over this past year me and Bex have grown close as friends (Or I'd like to think so), and I put that down to her being so down to earth, and on exactly the same page as me on many things. Depsite actually meeting properly through blogging, I actually knew Bex from a VERY long time ago through mutual friends, friends that I'm now sad to say, I'm not that close to anymore. Which has prompted me to write this post.

This year has made it more clear than EVER who my true friends are. At the start of the year, I became extremely poorly, which ended up with me having to have emergency surgery. Those who know me, will know that I'd been struggling for while with my health, and put it this way, I knew those who I could rely on and those who I couldn't. Not to be dramatic but it was possible I could have lost my life if my boyfriend hadn't of pushed me to go to the doctors, and while most text me, called me,asked about me, visted me ect, one friend could just not be bothered. She didn't call, text or visit the time I was in hospital or when I came out. I didn't care as I had other things on my mind, but reflecting now, I see this is not how a true friend would act! My best friends since primary school, are true friends. They text me everyday. They called, asked if I needed anything and when I was well enough came and took me to dinner, to get me out of the flat. THAT is a true friend. 

Friends who contastly let you down, can't be happy for you and have to make everything about them and what they want to do. I know we're all guilty of that now and again, but I'm talking all the time. Friends who can't be happy that you've moved in with your boyfriend and makes digs about how it'll never last. Makes digs about how you want to get married, have kids ect. Am I the only one who thinks this is just part of growing up? 

Much like Bex, me and Andy are saving up for a few things, like a house deposit, a wedding ect, so we don't go out and piss our money up the wall. I LIKE my quiet nights in, our cosy dinners, our bargain hunting. I just want friends around me who I can rely on, help out and be happy, like I am for them. I will always be willing to help out a friend, I wouldn't just drop them like a flame because someone better came along.

I've hardly been a great friend, I admit that for sure, but that's because sometimes life does get in the way, but I know that true friends will help one and other out, won't judge them and would certainly respect each other. 

Unfortunately, I've found out, this isn't always true

Sorry for the outburst, I had a lot to get out and now I feel much better! :)

Lots Of Love,

What I Got For Christmas - 2013

Hello! I hope you all had a very merry Christmas, and you ate, drank and was very merry! 

First of all I would like to point out, this is NOT a post that I am 'bragging' or 'showing off' and like others have said, I myself enjoy reading these posts and would like to do one myself. I am so thankful for everything I received :) Somethings I have decided not to show and somethings I have left at other places so therefore I could not photograph. 

I apologise for the quality, I'm currently using my Iphone for pictures, but here is basically what I got, a few from my parents like the the make-up set and Soap & Glory set, the rest are from my boyfriend! The galaxy tab is actually a bit of a cheat present as it's a presents for my boyfriend, but it's a bit of a joint one, like the Lee Evans tickets. The cook book I cannot wait to use, I've been hinting for ages, so super glad I've recieved this. Enough chocolate to last me a life time. 

From other friends and family, I got things like a Smashbox Starter set (which I love!), a beautiful bracelet from my mother in law and some other stocking fillers. 
  1. Tickets to see Lee Evans in September!
  2. London Eye Tickets
  3. Cruise along the Themes 
  4. Two night stay in a romantic hotel.

    Some amazing presents there alone! I cannot wait for September!!!!

    I hope you all had a lovely day, I know I did, and seeing the joy on my families faces when they opened there presents was lovely! 
    Have a happy new year

Back in October, I made the tough decision to take a break from blogging, I missed it very much but due to various things going on, I never really came back. Well, that's about to change! 

As I promised, I'm making my way back into the blogging community, and just in time for Rosella's 2nd birthday in a few weeks! I'm thrilled to be back, and I have to say, being away has revived my passion for my blog and has given me some new and fresh Ideas about where I want to go from here. 

I have to also give you followers a massive thank you! Despite me being away, I've gained a few more readers, and that's really put a smile on my face, and thank you to the older ones who have stuck by me :) The messages I received when I wrote about my decision was overwhelming, you were all so supportive and gave me the enthusiasm to start again :).

So I don't want to ramble on, but once again, thank you all for the massive support you've given me over the past few months and the also the last 2 years, here's to 2 more! 

Lots Of Love, 

Emily xox
