There have been highs and lows this year, wearing a bikini for the first time in over 20 years was definitely a high and one of the best moments this year without a doubt had to be Plus North. I got to be on the catwalk, meet so many fabulous ladies (you all know who you are!!).
Also at the top of the list was being invited to meet Gok Wan which in turn meant I also finally got to meet Leah from Just Me Leah, I think it would be fair to say that between Plus North and meeting Gok my dirty laugh has now become legendary!!
I celebrated my first year of marriage this year and it is also a huge thank you to my husband who ever since I wrote my very first blog post has been a constant source of support ever since (and who at times deserves a medal for living with me!!!).
The biggest low came when I lost my beloved Aunt to cancer earlier this year but in a moving and very fitting tribute we all wore something purple to her funeral and I later dedicated a blog post to her as it was her favourite colour.
Overall this has been the year of self acceptance and body positivity and long may it continue and if my corner of the internet has inspired just one person to learn to love their body or try that one item of clothing they thought they could never wear then I am happy.
A big thank you to everyone who has read the blog, left comments on here, Twitter or elsewhere and to all the fabulous bloggers who have made me very welcome and always find the time to help, give support and just generally be awesome because without you I wouldn't still be blogging!
So lets hope that 2014 is the year we all make our dreams come true (or at least live life the best way we can) so Happy New Year you fabulous lot!!!
