My 2017 Roundup!

Monday, January 01, 2018

As I write this post it is actually January, 5th. I have just received the most amazing tweet on Twitter which has already made 2017 50x better than I ever imagined it would be.
What's happened? THIS HAPPENED!!


Where will we go? I have absolutely no idea but I will, of course, let you know (that post is probably live by now, hahaha)

It's February, 2nd and we've just booked our #MomentMakers holiday!!! It was such a stressful experience, which really didn't need to be, but we're booked and the countdown to our 10 nights in Cape Verde has begun!! 

It's April 24th and I've just had notification from the Londis Twitter page that I have won a case (12 bottles) of the brand new Jack Daniels Cider. S and I are super excited to try it!!

April also saw me end down to Bodegas Leicester to check out their Spring Menu Launch. It was fabulous and I am still dreaming of those nachos! 

It's May 26th, we returned home late last night (almost midnight!!) from an incredible 10 nights in Boa Vista, Cape Verde. It was my first time abroad and I loved every second of it (even getting sunburnt.. okay, maybe not that bit). 

It's June 8th and I've just received a private direct message on Facebook from the Poundstretcher Facebook page to tell me I have won 2 garden chairs!! Unfortunately the colours we wanted were out of stock so they've been kind enough to send us £40 worth of vouchers, can you believe it?!

Also in June, I got invited back to the BBC Good Food Show thanks to the lovely Lorna at CranesDrinks. So S and I headed down to the NEC Birmingham to check out there show. You can find out why I was a little disappointed in my blog post. 

It's Wednesday 5th July, and I've won another competition!! This is honestly getting crazy but I'm excited that I've managed to win 2 tickets to an exclusive outdoor cinema experience. Of course, I'll be featuring a little review on the blog so be sure to check that out!! 

We've just got back from Swindon, we drove down there Sunday morning to attend The Luna Cinema experience. We decided to watch the original Ghostbusters. Unbeknown to us you could enter to win the chance of watching the film from the comfort of a double bed..... AND WE WON!!!

During September we not only celebrated my 27th birthday with a homemade unicorn cake, which I made myself and absolutely loved! We also celebrated a whole year in our new home. 

I also launched a new series on the blog called #BackToSchoolrecipes which was a huge success, I really enjoyed working on it and you guys seemed to really enjoy the recipes I shared so I will definitely be bringing the series back for 2018. As well as that I published my first paid blog collaboration with Panasonic which was pretty awesome. It was a super fun post to work on and I produced some of my favourite blog photography so far!

And in October, I recieved a copy of Jim Chapman's 147 Things in return for a blog post. Jim is a huge YouTube star and I still can't believe little ol' me got sent a PR copy of his book. Crazy! 

I won another competition in November with LightBites and we took a spontanous trip down to London with S' Mum and Dad at the beginning of December. After reading 147 Things by Jim Chapman, I feel inspired to make more spontanous decisions and book lots more road trips and that's exactly what I plan to do for 2018 so stay tuned!

It's now New Years Eve as I finish up this blog post ready to go live at 10am January 1st 2018. I've loved putting this blog post together throughout the year as a way to remember some of the incredible things that have happened this year. Despite still being ill, and my health still not improving a great deal, I think it's safe to say 2017 has been a pretty good year and I'm super excited to see what 2018 has in store for me.
