Today however, I thought I should have a little reflect on my 2012. 2012 was a pretty awesome year and so much has happened! I love documenting events/years with pictures so today I thought I'd write a little but about some cool things that have happened to me in 2012 and then add a lil picture to :) hope you enjoy!
Firstly, in February, me and a friend went on an exchange for two weeks to Madrid, Spain. It was an amazing experience and although it was hard being away from my family for so long (I'm a home girl) I am so pleased I did it as it gave me a sense of maturity and how to look after myself and I met so many new, lovely people.

DofE helped give me a sense of 'get up and go' and increased my stamina making me feel like a physically stronger person.
I'm so pleased I did DofE, it was definitely worth the blood, sweat and tears (yes, literally) in the end.

It was amazing and I met so many lovely, inspirational people there who I'll never forget and am already desperate to go back to Vietnam asap!

And not forgetting that I started blogging! I love blogging about makeup, beauty and general things really, it enables me to share my passions with like minded people :)
I can't believe I have 16 followers, I know it's just a start but it makes me so happy thinking that people read and (hopefully) enjoy my blog posts! So here's a massive thank you to all of my 16 followers for following me, I appreciate every one! <3
Lastly is School. I have been GCSEs in May and I've applied for some different sixth forms. As much as I dislike exams, there's a (weird) part of me that finds GCSEs kind of exciting. It's the thought that GCSEs are kind of like my ticket out of school and I am so excited for the future and all the challenges it holds. I can't wait to get out of school and although I know it'll be hard at first, I can't wait to have some freedom and start working towards my ambitions/dreams.
Overall this year has taught me that nothing is impossible and not to be afraid of trying something new. As Zoella says 'just say yes!'
Here's some things I'm going to do in the new year, if you like you could too!
At the moment the thing I'm looking forward to most in 2013 is summer. I will have finished my exams and will have a no studying, stress free summer! Yes please!
I hope you all have an amazing New Year and I shall be bringing you plenty more blog posts in the year (although I shan't be posting very much at all in January due to exams so bear with me!)
I hope you've found this post interesting and it has given you some new year inspiration! 2012 has been amazing, lets make 2013 just as great!
Anyway, I'm off for a cup of tea now :)
I shall metaphorically speak to you all in 2013!
