Review Of 2014

Wow, I can’t believe we are already in 2015! 2014 went super quick and soo much happened. I went a week without technology, had & threw up afternoon tea at The Ritz, saw a fashion show at London Fashion Week, Milked A Cow, went on a road trip to Ohio, went to a Rodeo in Ohio (in a maxi dress!), had a photo shoot with my mum, went on a spa weekend with Hayley and finally made my own Christmas cards!

As well as all of that I had 2 holidays, brought a new car, broke my foot, went to the grand national, reunited with old friends, lost new friends and caught lightening bugs in America. To say it has been a quiet year would be a bit of an understatement. However, for some reason whenever anyone says to me “oh what have you been up to?” I never seem have much to report back, which in actual fact is a LIE!

I cant really say what my favourite thing of 2014 was as I have a lot of happy memories and ones that I will treasure forever. There have been some sad times as well, Matt & I know people that have ended relationships, lost family members and experienced a lot of sadness this year.

I am really excited to see what 2015 has in store for me, I know that one thing is for sure I am fly to VEGAS in April! I cannot wait, I am sooo excited! I have also started number 24 – its a bit hard to find something to take a picture of everyday, but I am excited to look back on them in a years time! There are 2 more things that I would like to cross of this year, but I am going to keep them for myself and surprise you all when I announce them! People often ask each other, what New Year’s resolutions they are making; I cant help but feel that you are setting yourself up for failure, especially if they are diet or fitness related. I have made 3 resolutions for this year, but these are things I started doing at the beginning of December:

Be Kinder To Myself – dont put too much pressure on myself to hit certain goals, just enjoy life

Make More Effort With Those That Make The Effort With Me – I am not great at texting people back or calling people, but I am concious that I dont want to lose friendships that I have, so I am going to make the effort more, especially with those that always make an effort to reach out to me.

Save At Least 12k By The End Of The Year – I already have about a 3rd of this saved, so its a reasonable goal, but one that I want to achieve to get my own home!

Have you made any resolutions for the new year? what were your favourite things of 2014?

Relaxed Cows – Number 23!

OK, a few months ago my friend Hayley said she would love to do a girly spa break with me to cross something off my list. Things happened and we never got round to organising anything! As it was coming up to her birthday, I thought, why not organise something around that! We were heading to London anyway, so I spoke to her other half and booked a hotel and a treatment at a spa near Choccywoccydoodah!

The spa is called Cowshed; they have 6 spa’s in the UK, 3 in USA and 1 in Germany. You can also purchase their products from lots of stores across the country. We visited their Spa in Carnaby Street and from the minute we stepped in there I felt so relaxed even after battling though the crazy Christmas shoppers to get there!

We were booked in for a Ultimate Cowshed Manicure and it was just lovely! First off we were asked to pick a nail polish, which is easier said then done, once that was picked we were given a relaxing hand massage then whilst our hands were in a warming mask we were treated to head and shoulder massage. It was lovely! I honestly think I fell asleep at one point!

Not only is it a spa, they also sell their own products, ranging from candles to body lotions to baby products. My favourite thing about their products is that they are called things like knackered cow, horny cow, moody cow. I love the play on words aspect of it, it just makes products so much more fun!

I have to say, overall the spa experience we had was 10/10 we both love our nails and had a lovely relaxing experience! I would definitely go back!
