Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014

So, it's day two of 2014, and I'm finding my resolutions hard to keep already. I've never wanted to go shopping more! Oh, and what I'd do for a large Dominos right now. But, I am going to try and stay on track for as long as I can! Anyway, for today's post I wanted to recap my 2013, as I did something similar last year and I love looking back at all I've achieved these last 12 months. 

So 2013 saw me:
~ Visit Barcelona. I had a lovely week with my best friend on our school trip. We did so many lovely things, and I surprisingly enjoyed the tour of FC Barcelona.

~ Buy a DSLR. It's now my baby. I love photography, and the amount of things you can do with it, is incredible! Oh, and I also finished my photography qualification - woo!

~ Look after Ralphie. I was never really a dog person, but since looking after him, I've decided I'd love to have a dog of my own one day!

~ Attended some phenomenal events. The Matalan cinema club event in Knightsbridge was so much fun! And attending Benefit's Stay Flawless launch was equally as great!

~ Visit London 6 times. Before 2013, I hadn't been to London for years, but I've decided I love that city! 

~ Visited Venice. We spent a fortnight in Italy as a family, and it was lovely. It was really hot and sunny, and I ate far too many pizzas.

~ Reach 1000 followers. Yep. I still can't believe it! Thank you all so much!

~ Start up my own business. If you weren't already aware, I own Vanilla Bunting - the blog design shop! Why not have a look around?

What have you done this year?
Have you been on any exciting trips or days out?
