My 10 Favourite Moments of 2015

I thought I'd round up some of my favourite moments from this year just to look back and reflect. It's definitely been bumpy but I always make an effort to soak up the good memories and learn from the bad. So here are just a few stand out things from 2015.

1. Starting the blog

One of the biggest decisions I made in 2015 was to take the dive and start the blog. I feel like I've just begun my journey so lets see where I end up.

2. Partnering up with great brands

In short amount of time that I've been running the blog I've had the opportunity to partner up with some amazing brands. I'm very grateful and have more exciting things coming soon!

3. Traveling like crazy

With 6 flights and 7 hotels, traveling in 2015 was insane and tiring  but I wouldn't have had it any other way. 

4. Dining inside a cave

While traveling in Kenya I had the opportunity to dine in this 18,000 year old cave which was one of the most surreal things out of my whole trip.

5. Attending menswear fashion week

London Collections: Men was crazy but fun. Even though I was ill during fashion week I soaked up every moment. This particular photo was taken outside the Belstaff SS16 show.

6. Riding a horse

This must have surely been one of the most terrifying things I have done this year, although I'm so glad I did. My first time riding a horse was in Kenya and it was a pretty special experience. Went riding in a national park where I managed to spot a white zebra (one of the most beautiful creatures ever!)

7. Going on safari

Something I will always remember is safari in Kenya. I visited 4 national parks and got to stay in some of the most luxury tents ever!

8. Graduating with a first class degree

After all those sleepless nights worrying about my dissertation my hard work paid off. Although it wasn't enjoyable at the time, achieving a first has been one of my proudest moments so far.

9. Enjoying summer with my best friend

After a stressful year at university I ended up having the most magical summer ever with my best friend Afreen. Although we didn't get up to that many crazy things like you might be thinking. We just created great memories.

10. Selling my business

 You may be thinking why the hell is this a favourite moment? Well I ran a business for 2 years in an industry that I wasn't very passionate about. It was very successful and only kept getting bigger so I decided to quit the stress and sell up. One of the wisest decisions I made.

Well that's it guys we are now officially in 2016 I genuinely hope you have a fulfilling year. Here's to a fresh start, a reaffirmation of  promises we've made and to a brighter future. Happy New Year!
