Taking inspiration from my lovely friend Laura from Style and Sushi, I thought I would share some of my favourite memories from the duration of the past year! 2015 has been such a great year and I cannot wait for 2016 and the opportunity to make more memories. I share a lot of what I get up to on Instagram, follow me there if you want to keep up with my adventures over the next year.
