The Annual: 2011


2011 was an amazing year but not one for sticking to resolutions in. I didn't lose weight and I didn't stop smoking. This year, I'm not making a single resolution. I just want to learn as much as I can and have a good time doing it.

The first thing to change in 2012 has been the layout of this blog thanks to Faye from All These Pretty Things. There are still a few tweaks to be made but I love the clean lines, so do let me know what you think.

Thank you to all those who've given advice and kind words over the last twelve months, it's been a brilliant year and I've loved sharing some of it with people who are still interested enough to keep reading!

Here's to an exciting, prosperous, inspiring and full of love 2012!

  16. Hi, at the risk of sounding liek a spam comment, I gave up smoking 2 years ago by reading the alan carr how to stop smoking book, it honestly was one of the best things I've ever done. I'd tried champix, hypnosis, patches, (never bothered with will power- just too tricky) and this was the only thing that worked. I know I sound like an infomercial, and will stop now.
    loved your retrospective of the year!
