This is my living room (we haven't taken our decorations down so it's still much the same).
2011 was a hard and challenging year for me but it was also the year I started this blog (in October) which has bought me a lot of joy letting me express myself creatively again. These are just some photos I didn't have to space to put in previous posts that I thought I'd share with you all now.
I started my first year at university and bought my boyfriend that bonsai tree at a plant sale there. I also got a rose plant which subsequently died very soon after purchase.
This year I started to give my nails more attention (I still have a lot to learn, including neatness, as you can see).
I had an awesome Guy Fawkes' weekend that also involved a vintage fair.
Me and my boyfriend spent a lot of time in Brighton this year, including during this oddly sunny November day for an Outfit of the Day shoot. As you can see, because he lacks fringe (or bangs for you American folk) he also lacked the ability to look into the sun and smile.
We also ate a lot of Krispy Kremes (this a customised box I presented to him one day), especially during Halloween.
We introduced two more members into our (slightly cat obsessed) family.
And I did have, despite everything, a merry Christmas.
I hope you did too.
(I love how that photo shows the reflection of all the lights in my living room, which me and my boyfriend decorated together. He always makes Christmas that bit better.)
