I adore this Tularosa dress from Revolve and wore it to my birthday lunch in May to the place where we got married! Unfortunately it’s out of stock atm, but you can always sign up for notifications for when it’s back in stock- I highly recommend it, it’s so comfy and glam!

Best moments of 2016

Europe 

What more can I say? We spent the whole of September in Europe (via Dubai!) and it was absolutely divine. People always ask us, what was your favourite part of Europe- I couldn’t choose! Every day was amazing, and the memories we made will last us a lifetime. <3

Buying land

It has always been our dream to build our own house, and we were lucky enough for it to happen (well the land part!) last year! It wasn’t exactly part of our plan- we thought about building in 4 years or so- but when life hands you an opportunity you don’t pass it up! Our house won’t be ready until 2018 anyway.

Our second year of marriage

One of the most fun parts of being married is how you, your spouse and your whole relationship can grow, change, thrive and improve. This is always going to happen- I’m not the same person now that I was when I started dating my husband when I was 21, and neither is he. The important thing is to grow together, and that’s the most exciting part! In 2016 we both started new hobbies, had new ideas and plans, focused on our careers and passions, travelled, read, learned. I can’t wait for what 2017 has in store for us!

Blogging

This is the passion I finally found! It has given me so much pleasure, happiness and fulfillment in 2016, and I only want to commit more time and energy to it in 2017 so I can try to be the best I can be and achieve my goals. <3

Plans for 2017

Build our house!

Our land should settle mid-year and then we can’t wait to start building! I will be sharing my home inspo with you over the coming months!

Exercise regularly

I know, it’s such a cliche resolution! I joined by gym in June and was doing pretty well, but didn’t go for the whole month of December! I’m obsessed with my Booty Barre and have seen such amazing and quick results, so I want to keep up with it this year.

Travel

I absolutely love travelling, and hope we can make it to the US this year!

More Blogging!

Of course! 😀

What are your goals or resolutions for 2017, or your fave moments from 2016? I would love to hear them!
