Oh hello New Year's Eve, when did you creep up on us?
I've spent the last few days in a haze of cheese and not really knowing what I'm meant to be doing and I've been absolutely fine with that.
But I have done quite a lot of thinking about 2016 and the year we've got to come.
I'm not going to get all deep on you - and I'm not really one for New Year's resolutions. I'm pretty sure I broke the last one I set in about 4 days, but I have set myself some goals or targets which I'm going to do my best to smash next year.
One of those is to widen up the content of my blog. I know I've said it before but I'm really going to try and vary what I produce in 2017.
When I first started out, I always wanted a 'lifestyle' blog but I've inevitably written about the one thing I'm most passionate about (food) which is great but I also want to show there's more to me than just what I eat.
You'll still find all the restaurants and recipes which I LOVE writing about, but I also want to feature the other things in my life which interest me. The blogs I love the most are the ones where you really get to know the writer's life so I thought give it a go and see where 2017 takes us!
So to kick off this new lease of varied content life, I'm going to start with a more fashion-led post.
I'm never going to be a fashion blogger because LOL have you seen how much I eat - but I do want to share some of the babe-ing things I've come across and if you're anything like me, I think you'll love.
Case in point, my new SO sassy Knomo Elektronista bag. Not only is it velvet and super pretty but it's also changed my LIFE in terms of organisation.
I will hold my hands up and tell you that I am the least organised person when it comes to being an adult. I'm THAT annoying person who never has their ticket ready or that's lost their bank card or worse still, their keys (sorry mum/Tom) - so this little beauty is a bit of a life-saver.
Not only does it have designated spaces for your phone, cards and keys but it has a slot at the back for your tablet to sit in and *drum roll please* it comes with a compact charger so you can power your phone on the go.
I know. What a babe. No more empty phone battery half way through the day, thank you very much.
It also has a detachable strap so you can wear it across your body or use it as a clutch bag, making it perfect to go straight from work to a night-out without lugging a huge laptop bag around.
I've honestly been SO impressed with mine. I used it on our recent trip to Chester for Christmas and I can't tell you how nice it is not to have to root all around your bag for things!

The only down-side is that I've now got no excuse when I next lose my bank-card or keys...
