Reflecting on 2016 and what 2017 has in store for us

So its coming up to the end of 2016 and ive recently been reflecting on this year, a lot of things have happened in this world and to my life. We have lost a lot of great celebrities, we have voted out of the EU and an idiot has been made president (his name does not deserve to be in my blog!)

But in my life ive had a fantastic year! Its got to be the best one yet and one i will always remember as i came into the year as a pregnant woman and im leaving this year with a gorgeous little girl and i can finally call myself a mummy! And the proudest one at that! Dont get me wrong we have had our up's and downs, we have lost two cars this year due to idiots on the road but we have gained a lovely one now so i do firmly believe everything happens for a reason! We also moved house to a nicer area in Cornwall (in my opinion) Ive also done a few extra courses as a beauty therapist and im proud to say i can now do threading and bridal make up! Eloise has had a big year, she was brought into this world, she helped me do the race for life, celebrated her first Halloween and Christmas when it comes and she also was christened with me! We had our first little family holiday to Tottenham so eloise could meet some of her family and went to her first lifeboat day, shes had so many firsts i cant count and next year will be full of even more!

Now i'd like to talk about next year and my plans and goals, as its always good to have goals and im not talking those typical eat less, exercise more ones! So our plans as a family next year are we want to go on our first holiday abroad as a family. and start making some plans for our wedding! Next year is going to bring some really exciting things as we have a few really big birthdays, Eloise and her cousin are going to turn 1 in march which is super exciting but scary at the same time, and me my dad and my sister have big birthdays (im not going to reveal there age's) however im going to be turning 21!!

I have some goals next year regarding my career, im going to be doing a nail extension course to further myself in the salon i currently work in, and there may be some other courses on the horizon! But i would love to get this blog out to more people and most importantly furthering my Youtube channel, im currently on about 300 subscribers ish. and i would absolutely love to get to 1,000 next year! Aiming big i know! Im also going to try and stick to an uploading schedule as ive been doing this blog every Tuesday for a while now and stuck to it! So i think i need a bit more structure to my YouTube channel! Speaking of a schedule, i do have one for Christmas, and i will be doing Vlogmas this year for those of you who dont know Youtuber terms it means i will be uploading a video everyday until Christmas from the 1st December so make sure you go check that out! I will leave the link below! 

Anyway thats all for this week, i would love to hear your guys plans for next year and goals! And leave me a comment telling me how your year has been and what things have happened to you!

See you next Tuesday!

Baby update - 1 year old

Hi everyone, so i have been wanting to film a baby update for so long, and its so difficult to film a sit down video with Eloise as she just wants to get up and move about so i thought i would do a written version instead!

As you know from the title Eloise is now a 1 year old! Still feels weird to say and type it! So this post is just going to update you on whats shes been up to and what milestones shes been achieving!

Eloise started walking about 11 months old, she took a few steps one week and the next week she was walking from room to room so it happened super super quickly, and now as im writing this shes running around all over the place! We recently brought her first pair of shoes from clarks however one of them has now been lost, we have searched the house so we have come to the conclusion that its ended up in the bin!

We made the transition from baby milk to cows milk about 11 months old. She was already having plenty of cows milk in her cereal so we thought we would change he…

How i celebrated my 21st birthday

So on May 15th 2017 i celebrated my 21st birthday. Well i say the 15th may but i pretty much celebrated all weekend and theres still more to come!

The day before my birthday me and my mum went shopping and brought loads of stuff for our holiday to Cuba. (there is a haul on my channel Lydia Anne on YouTube) it was a really sunny day in Cornwall and it was so nice to spend the time with my mum and Eloise. After shopping i went home to find one of my sisters had decorated my front room with balloons and also put photos on my wall in the shape of a 21. These were photos from when i was born right up until now, i literally am so soppy i cried my eyes out for about 30 mins i couldn't even talk, whilst i was doing that Decarlo couldn't stop laughing at me! When i finally managed to stop crying and actually look at the photos properly Decarlo told me we were going for a meal just me him and Eloise, so i had to go and wash my face and get rid of any make up that was left on my face (wh…
