I'm sat listening to a 'New Year's Bangers' Playlist slightly drunk and just wanted to wish everyone reading a wonderful new years eve or day and beyond (if you are reading this post NYE). Here's hoping 2018 is slightly less filled with sad things and more of the kind of stuff we can be proud and happy about. 2017 was a real year of personal highs and worldwide lows which has been a real rollercoaster of emotions!

I don't think people will forget 2017 easily given the atrocities but with the sadness has come the realisation that we are stronger together and people have built eachother up in the most wonderful way despite the circumstances.

Being away on holiday when the Manchester bombing took place was difficult but I have never been more proud to call myself a 'manc'. We will never forget those who lost their lives and how our amazing city fought against those who were determined to bring us down.

On a personal level 2017 was when I bought my first property and I am pretty proud of myself. I plan to continue to challenge myself in 2018 and improve myself and my new home. There's much I want to achieve in my career and there's no reason why 2018 shouldn't be the year I make this happen. I also have blog goals to smash!

I am excited about the things to come and I hope you are too. The sky is the limit!

Finding the perfect Christmas Present can be tricky and sometimes the most difficult people to buy for can be those closest to you, especially if they are the type to buy themselves what they need! There is nothing more special than watching someone open something that is really personal and thoughtful, I get so much enjoyment watching my friends and family open gifts that I know they will love.

This October, my sister became a mother for the first time and we are all so excited for the first Christmas with a rather gorgeous little boy being present! I wanted to get some 'new mum' related gifts for my sis and notonthehighstreet was where I knew I'd find the perfect items!

The personalised versions are all wrapped and under the tree so as not to spoil the surprise too much(!) but I wanted to talk about what I picked and why! Rather than advent calendars we have had a festive photo of William every day and his festive wardrobe has been epic! These gorgeous Christmas Pudding Leggings will be one of the last few snaps we get and I couldn't resist them :)

The other two gifts are for my sister, a personalised 'The Day You Became My Mummy' Keyring with a little message from William (such a clever boy!) and a lovely Brushed Copper Frame with one of William's baby pictures in ready for her desk at home or at work! I thought this would be perfect as I think every new Mum gets real guilt pangs when they return to work and I know my sister will need something to remind her why she is back at work and who she is working hard for...

Keep your eyes on my social media and I'll be sure to post a pic of William in his new leggings :)

To kick start the festive season, Salon Success invited me to the Malmaison in Manchester for their blogger #JingleMingle and to talk about their new products they are bringing to your local salons!

It was such a lovely evening and great to hear the latest from Paul Mitchell, Gem Lites by Celeb Luxury and Kenra. I love hearing about new products so this was a rather lovely way of getting the info on the potential new holy grail products!

Paul Mitchell is very well known and their Christmas Gift Sets this year are amazing, I am currently trialling their volume collection and loving it so far! I am however, really interested in the Gem Lites which leaves a small amount of colour in your hair and is an at home shampoo which over time gradually colours/tones your hair. I will keep you posted on that one!

Thank you once again to Salon Success for a wonderful event :)
