Happy New Year Everyone! I hope you’ve all had a fabulous Christmas and a great start to 2014!
Every year starts with resolutions that I usually don’t keep, so this year to keep me on track I’m writing all of them here so you guys can check up on me! So here they are…
-blog at least once a week (how many times have we heard that one before?)
-start dancing again
-learn more about feminism
-make some blog friends
-be less bitchy (no more mean girls moments- joking I’m not actually that bad)
-raise at least £200 for Soweto2Culcheth (keep reading you’ll understand)
-make more of an effort with my hair and make-up
-eat healthily and join the gym (yawn)
Okay, so now the boring bit’s out of the way, I want to share some of my special moments from 2013 with you. Whilst Facebook and Twitter have been bombarded with ‘2013 was the worst year of my life’ I’m gonna be that annoying positive bitch and say actually 2013 was the best year of my life.
Visiting my family in Ireland- one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. I’m not joking when I say there’s no filter on this.
Perfect days spent with my girls.
Travelling around Scandinavia and Russia in Summer.
Seeing Macklemore in concert- one of the best nights of my life.
And finally after a year of fund-raising, visiting South Africa and Matseliso High School as part of the Culcheth2Soweto project.
Saying goodbye to the family at the airport.
Me and Al pretending to be celebrities on our Emirates flight
Super excited about meeting the students.
I was wrong when I thought that no one was more overexcited than me!
As you can see, I taught the most productive lessons;)
Me and Nyiko rocking our sunnies
Swaggin it up with Kensani
Visiting a middle school that had children up to the age of 15, I was so shocked to see this poster on the side of the building
Visiting an orphanage on Kliptown- a slum in Soweto- was the most best and worst experiences of my life
Pool partayyy at Boyce’s
Art isn’t part of their curriculum, so they were really excited in my scrap-booking lesson!
Me and my girl Abigail!
My faves- Ellen and Hope! Us three are all penpals now!
I’d love to see all of your 2013 best memories too, so comment a link to your blog if you’d like me to check it out! Have an amazing 2014!
