Moments That Mattered 2013

Moments That Mattered 2013

I wasn't originally going to do any post like this where i sum up the events of 2013 because i kind of feel like 2013 wasn't a special year but when i think back of all the things i did or achieved last year i think 2013 definitely was more than special. For me 2013 was the year of little things and little moments.



During 2013; i got to watch Olly Murs and Bruno Mars on their tours, i saw my cousin get married, i went from having no UD Naked Palettes to owning all three and the basics, I finally got instagram, i did a massive Beauty Swap with a blogger in the US, I got a job, I graduated from University with a 2:1 and i made the decision that i didn't want to take my degree any further and the biggest thing i achieved in 2013 was being able to cross one of my biggest dreams off my bucket list - I went to Rome and finally made a wish in the Trevi Fountain (i almost cried), I tasted real Italian Pizza and Gelato, I went to the Collosseum, the Spanish Steps and the Pantheon, I found the Secret Keyhole, I went to Sephora and I discovered the wonders of Kiko Cosmetics.

2013 was also a great year for my blog - I hit 500 Followers both on my GFC and Blog Lovin', my blog started to get a little more recognition giving me wonderful opportunities like attending the Benefit 'Fake Up' Concealer launch and meeting some lovely bloggers id spoken to previously and the chance to work with lovely brands and people like Pure Skincare, Max Factor, John Freida, Travel Supermarket, Money Supermarket and I've also built up a good relationship with Total Media (Media Buying), I won many wonderful giveaways, i completed a 365 challenge of blogging everyday and my passion for blogging has continued to remain strong.

So yeah, 2013 was all about the little things and the little moments as they most definitely outweighed any of the bad things that happened. Lets make 2014 even better!
