2011 – A Review

Firstly I’d like to say a huge thank you and love you to all my readers - 2011 for me has been a huge year. So much has happened to me personally and in blogging so I thought I’d give a end of 2011 round up.




I never thought this time last year that so much would have happened to me.

  • Firstly I bought myself my own house! I would never have thought this a realistic dream but with hard work and the help of my parents and my boyfriend’s parents to do renovations, we are almost living there. If you loved Changing Rooms, head to my home blog www.laurenmakesahome.blogspot.com

  • I went to Thailand! As someone who had never left Europe that was a huge step and so exciting!


  • I graduated from my Master’s degree!

  • It’s not all been great. My nan, who I’m very close to got seriously ill and although she’s on the mend slowly now it cast a huge shadow over what would be a perfect year.
