New Year New Post.......

So 2015 has not been the best year it most definitely has been a roller coaster of extreme highs and extreme lows, one of the highest highs was getting to see my best friend get married in June just to be part of it and witness that moment was overwhelming and a emotional roller coaster and was most definitely what i needed after having a year riddled with sadness and realisation that my own wedding would be missing some of the most important people in life, my friends wedding made me realise that you have to embrace the present and be grateful for the wonderful people you get to share it with and even though it has been a long upward battle to get back to where i was over a year ago i finally feel like i am in a better place with plenty to look forward too.

We travelled to Germany, Paris, India (documented on my travel blog) and so many other fab places here in the UK and to top it all off we brought in 2016 in Edinburgh at the Hogmanay Street Party which is always such a amazing experience, we stayed in a holiday home at Moretonhall Caravan site 9 minutes outside of Edinburgh centre which was amazing and so spacious especially as we shared it with 2 of our best friends and was brand new for £280 for 2 nights, along with a onsite shop and restaurant and a bus stop right outside which has regular buses in to the centre in was perfect for our Scottish adventure.

So back to the last 12 months (as i have been extremely absent) has been a crazy one which has allowed me to really refocus whats important to me in life and has really toughened me up, wedding planning has probably been my saving grace as it has really allowed me to throw myself in to something and just escape reality (my favourite thing to do when times are grey); Louis and i are getting married in a 12th Century Chateau in Poitiers France, a stunning 16 bedroom chateau set in 56 acres of land in the middle of the french countryside; Louis knew immediately that was where we would be married but i took a little more time to come around to the idea (i think it must be a indecisive woman thing) but now i am over the moon that we will be married there, the character of the whole estate is amazing and the grounds are stunning including the tree arch leading up to the chateau where we will have our wedding breakfast and now it is only 6 months away its all starting to feel very real!

Our last year of living at home rent free (sob, sob im still not sure if im ready to be a real grown up with real bills) has allowed us to save for the wedding but to also fit in quite a few little trips including 2 long weekends in Paris (obviously enroute to see our venue), Paris has a huge place in mine and Louis's heart we try to go as often as possible and really just soak up the atmosphere (and of course the fashion)  we stay in the most amazing apartment that really does feel like our home away from home the link to their site is here, it is based in a amazing area with shops, bars and metro stations all within a 10 minute walk it is our go to place when ever we stop in Paris.

So this unearthed I'm hoping to get back in the blogging game and also mix it up a little with a bit more life style stuff mixed in with outfit posts... Watch this space

So enough waffling on before we move forward to 2016 here is a little round up of my 2015......
