    MY BEST MOMENTS OF 2017

    2016 was a pretty shitty year for me so I was determined to make 2017 a much, much better one.

    At the start of the year, I wrote a list of resolutions or 'goals' for what I wanted to achieve - and after a lot of rummaging around to look for the list, I'm pleased to say I've been able to cross off quite a few.
    I BOUGHT A COTTAGE WITH TOM
    So this was kind of the biggie. In January, after sort of talking about the fact we might start *thinking* about buying somewhere together in 2017, we put an offer in on a cottage in Beaconsfield and it actually got accepted. Cue a frantic rush to sell my flat, complete on both properties and start our HUGE renovation plans.

    Tom and I have put our heart and souls into renovating that little cottage. We knocked down every internal wall, tore off every piece of plasterboard, re-wired, re-plumb, rebuilt almost every aspect of the house - I mean we even moved the location of the bloody staircase! It's taken up every single evening and weekend for the last year but the end is in sight and in two weeks time (fingers crossed), we'll be moving in to our dream home!

    If you want to follow our renovation works, we set up an Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/thelakeslaneproject/ 

    I GOT PROMOTED
    As some of you know I work at a fab PR agency in Beaconsfield. From product launches and news sell-ins for Kinder Bueno and Nutella to activating huge sponsorship campaigns for Just for Men and the NFL, it's been an incredibly full on year - and I worked my absolute butt off so I was over-the-moon to get promoted in October. I proved to myself that I am good at my job - and that hard work really does pay off!

    I LOST OVER A STONE
    This one I am really proud of. I had my friend's hen do in Marbella in July and went on a bit of a health-kick beforehand. I managed to shift over a stone in weight (and keep it off) and I honestly feel amazing for it. My blog has taken a bit of a hit (because food blogging is kinda hard when you're not eating out as much) and I still have a tiny bit more I want to lose but I am so happy and confident in myself right now so I couldn't be prouder.

    I WATCHED TWO OF MY BEST FRIENDS GET MARRIED
    Speaking of hen-dos - this year I got to see two of my best friends walk down the aisle on their wedding days. Seeing your friends get married is just the best thing - you get to dress up, spend time with all your mates, see your BFF at their happiest and there's just SO much love in the room! I've got another wedding later this month, then weddings lined up in 2018 and 2019 - and I'm sure there's more proposals on the way!

    So yeah 2017 was a pretty good year on all fronts. Now, roll on 2018...I'm excited to see what's in store.
