2015... That's A Wrap

Long time, no see, right? As we all know, Blogmas went really well (not), and I lost a bit of interest, if I’m honest. I wasn’t happy with what I was putting out, so I thought I’d have a little break over the holidays and come back fresh in the New Year. And here I am!
When trying to brainstorm some new post ideas, I thought a good place to start would be the clichéd look back at last year.

2015 has been an incredible year for me, as it saw me graduate from university, start my first full time job, and successfully secure myself a place on a teacher training course starting in 2016. But most of all, this has been the year that saw LifeLoveLexie grow and blogging became such a big part of my life. Here are my Instagram highlights of the year:

SotonBloggers Goody Bags – This year saw me attend my first blogging events and become good friends with a lot of the Southampton Bloggers. In August, I attended the SotonBloggers meetup, and thoroughly enjoyed it. You can see my post on the event here.
Hourglass blush – I’ve waited a really long time to get my hands on a blush from Hourglass. I couldn’t decide which one I wanted, but when I was leaving my job at John Lewis, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to finally buy one. I went for Luminous Flush.
Christmas Market Fun with Anna – Blogging and becoming more active in the community has given me some fab friends, one of which is Anna from BrightEyeBlog. When we were both attempting Blogmas (she did much better than me, well done girly), we took a trip to Winchester’s Christmas Market, and it was so much fun!
Ruma Shellac Nails – I was lucky enough to attend the preview event at Ruma Salon, and have my nails done. I loved the experience, and shared my thoughts here. You can also read about the preview event here.
Winchester – I had a couple of trips to Winchester towards the end of the year, and I loved how festive it looked.
21st Birthday – I turned 21 at the start of the year, what a milestone! I was really spoiled, with a trip to the ballet as part of my birthday celebrations.
First Red Cup of the Season – I live for the festive releases from Starbucks and Costa, and picked up a red cup from Starbacks at the first possible opportunity.
Bella Italia Cookie Dough – I love Cookie Dough, and when I went for dinner with Anna and Jess (TheLifeofJKS) at Bella Italia, and saw that it was on the menu, I had to have it!
OOTN – I had a great night out with the Soton Bloggers, and loved what I wore so much, I had to write about it here.
I would love for 2016 to continue being as fantastic as 2015 turned out to be.
Until next time,
Lexie
