My 2017 Bucket List – How Did I Do?! || Life Lately

Back at the beginning of 2017, I decided to share my bucket list for the coming year online. The main reason being, in previous years I’ve written them in a notebook and either lost or filled that notebook and could not for the life of me remember what they were. That, or I’d had them on my phone and coming to the end of the year been like “not gonna happen but no one knows them, doesn’t matter”. So I thought I’d post them on my blog so that I’d feel a little more accountable. That, and I’m nosey and enjoy reading these kinds of posts.

On that note, here’s how I got on with my 2017 bucket list;

7 Things Blogging Has Taught Me in 2017 || Blogging

I know that at this time of year almost every blogger has some kind of 2017 in review post. This isn’t going to be the first, and it’s certainly not going to be the last. In fact, it’s not even the last post I’m doing on this. I’ve hopefully (if the Christmas break was productive enough) a few posts including favorite bloggers from the year, looking back on the year’s highlights and of course an update on the aims goals I posted at the beginning of the year. And, by writing that here that totally means I have to finish writing them now right?

Anyway, excuse my slight tangent, here are seven things I’ve learned from blogging in 2017;

Brown Cow Vodka Cocktail Masterclass at Hixter, Bankside || Food & Drink

Recently, things have been a bit hectic. Well, if by recently you mean that the whole of 2017 had been a little bit of a whirlwind. So when Mona asked if I wanted to come along with her to a cocktail masterclass at Hixter I was super excited. After all, if you ask me what the recipe for a great evening had then three things I’d mention would be fabulous company, yummy food and a few cocktails for good measure. And this particular Friday had all three!

So, if you fancy a read of what we got up to or even just a few cheeky cocktail recipes then continue on reading below…

“It’s The Little Things In Life” – 9 – November || Life Lately

“We Sometimes Underestimate The Influence Of Little Things” – Charles W Chestnutt

Another month almost over another “It’s The Little Things” post. Even when I’ve been bogged down with real life things like work, health and everything in between I thoroughly enjoy writing these. Mostly as it gives me a chance to look through my diary and actually realize that, “hey, I do have it pretty good.” (Most of the time anyway!). So on that note, here are a selection of little and not so little things that have made me happy during November; View Post
