2015 OVERVIEW. The good & The bad

As we end 2015 and enter 2016. I thought I would do a overview of 2015.

2015 has been one hell of a year. Some good times but mostly rough times. I was thinking about not doing this post but I thought, Why not. It's something to remind me things have to get better. Lets start with the good things.

2015 was a year of visiting a lot of UK places which is something I haven't done before. It was something that we did as a family and it was really enjoyable. One of my favourite parts of visiting so many places was the traveling. The Scenery was incredible. Some of the pictures look like they have just come from postcards they are that picture perfect.

I visited a LUSH store for the first time and loved it. Everyone was so friendly and so helpful. Since then I've been in there lots of times buying little treats each time.

I Brought my first ever MAC lipstick. In the shade BRAVE. I was in love and I still am with it. I need to repurchase it again.

I did quite a few makeup looks. Which I'm so proud of because they came out so well. Makeup and applying makeup makes me very happy.

I was brave enough to start posting outfit of the days. I'm not the most comfortable with my size at the moment but I plucked up the courage and I'm so glad I did.

My last Good bit about 2015 is. I wrote a post very recently about mental health and Christmas. I was so proud of that post because it's a topic I feel so passionate about it went down so well too. I'm going to continue to post more mental health related posts.

Now lets get onto to the bad bits about 2015.

I'm only including the bad parts just to remind myself things have to get better.

2015 Became a year where my Mental Health got out of hand. It really was a rough year. I did get help a couple of times but I was so in denial about how bad I was that it just didn't matter how much help I received nothing would help me get out of this dark time. I quit two of the therapies I was in and took a turn for the worse. There is some things I've not spoken about on hear regarding my MH because I'm not quite ready. But certain things did get out of hand. I'm so happy that I'm starting to get through it. Also I realised that I need help and accepting it is nothing to be ashamed of. As soon as the first Monday of January comes I'm making a doctors appointment to finally accept the help I need.

It was year of massive anniversary's. Its now been 10 years since my Nan died. It hit me harder then I thought it would. You think that you've accepted things. But I don't think I have. It's something I'm still coming to terms with.

Our beautiful family dog passed away. That really hit me hard. He was there for me when no one else was. Sounds stupid but pets do really become a part of your comfort and life. He was everything to us. Nearly 5 months on and it's still so sad. He was 15teen so he as a long and wonderful life. But the selfish part of me wishes he was still with us.

That's my 2015 Overview. I say this every year but time goes so fast. I hope 2016 Is a much better year for me and I do the things I want to do.

What's been your highlight of 2015..


  1. You are such a strong lady! I can relate I recently got help with my MH and I'm currently in the process of finding the right medication for me and booked with a therapist. 2016 will be our year and we will learn to love ourselfs and be happy! So sorry about your dog and grandma, I've never lost anyone so I have no idea how it feels but I bet it's heartbreaking! stay strong! You deserve all the happiness for 2016 and much more!x
