Love, Laughter & Learning

Location: Everywhere, even space.
Happy New Years Eve. Now I know I said that 2016 was the best year of my life in last years blog post. Well, I know I’ve definitely beaten it with 2017. This year has been a truly beautiful blur. It’s been a year filled with incredible opportunities, experienced alongside some of the most amazing people I’ve had the pleasure to both work and play with. I feel more settled than ever in both work and home, and feel more thankful than ever for the support, love and encouragement I receive from everyone in my life. From Alex and I moving into our new home, to the work goals I’ve achieved and from time spent with family and friends to the new places I’ve discovered along the way. 2017 has treated me very well this year and I count my blessings that as a family we’re moving into 2018 happy and healthy. My family sadly lost an incredibly special person this year who meant so much to all of us. Losing him has only spurred me on to make him proud of everything I choose to be a part of. This year’s for you Grandad and everything that’s to come. I miss you everyday. Here’s to many more beautiful memories and to making those we love and have lost, proud of everything that we do x

A trip to the idyllic Maldives in May was the perfect chance for some sunshine; but as always the work never stops.

And then it was time to explore magical Cuba and all it had to offer before my L’Oreal family whisked me off to red carpets galore. 

May’s highlight HAS to be the wedding of 2 of our favourite people: Carly & Leon. 

All of a sudden it was June and I was whisked away to Mexico with the wonderful team over at Revolve.

A HUGE thank you from me to you, for being a part of this year with me. I couldn’t have achieved anything I have without the support and encouragement I am lucky enough to feel, every single day of this journey. I hope your 2017 has been just as memorable and I hope you’ll be a part of my 2018 too. Thank you from the bottom of my heart x
