Happy New Year Everyone

Happy New Year everyone! It is now 2014!

I have seen a lot of posts of late reflecting on 2013 and when I look back over the year - I really did have a fabulous year.

Over the 12 months I've grown so much in confidence which gave me the boost to start this blog! Even though I've only been posting for a short time, ive already experienced some wonderful things due to my blog and I've had the chance to speak to some incredible women!

I've also done so many wonderful things and spent so much wonderful time with my gorgeous man, friends and family! So I can only hope that 2014 brings more of what 2013 offered me.

Now, on to New Years Eve! Rather than going out and getting drunk, which really isn't my sort of thing, my wonderful man and I decided to go for a gorgeous meal at our favourite restaurant;

Dress - ASOS Curve, Tights - Evans, Bag - ASOS Curve, Necklace - Dorothy Perkins, Boots - ASOS Curve.

I officially have a new favourite dress! I loved this dress when it was full price but I'm so glad I waited to buy it as I ended up getting it for £19 in the ASOS Curve sale! I got a size bigger because I wasn't sure how the cut would be but it still fits perfectly! The sleeves are adorable, with a little elastic cuff and a frill and the length is amazing. The material is light and breathable but not too sheer or chilly in this wintery weather. It could easily be dressed up a lot more of dressed down a lot more, depending on the occasion. Definitely my new favourite dress and I would recommend it to everyone.

I also picked up this bag in the ASOS Cur be sale for £24 and I love it. It's faux croc skin with a matte finish and a draw string-esque look (although there isn't really a drawstring unless you pull the actual handles haha). There's plenty enough space for all the unnecessary things I Iike to carry in my handbag and it's super comfortable to carry.

I got the necklace in the Dorothy Perkins sale for £5 and it may be a little tacky but I adore it haha. Anything garish and gold and I am all over it! My suede Chelsea boots are super super old ASOS and they are a perfect heel height for me as I rarely wear heels. They're also just smart enough to be worn with more dressy outfits!

I kept my makeup light for a dewy, fresh faced look. Using Collection 2000 Eyebrow pencil, Illamasqua Skin Base liquid foundation, Body Shop pressed powder, Calvin Klein bronzer, Benefit Watts Up highlighter, GOSH liquid liner, Scandaleyes Retro Glamour from Rimmel mascara and Revlon lipgloss. 

Finally, here is a photo of both of us (my beautiful man looks so handsome) and the incredible meal we had!

I really hope 2014 brings you all everything you're dreaming of and more and I am so excited to see what it will bring for me and my little blog!

Lots Of Love,
