2017, MY YEAR IN TRAVEL.

Now that we're almost half way through December, it's a good time to start reflecting on the past year before we look forward to the future and whatever 2018 has in store for us. I'd like to kick things off with a round up of places I've had the pleasure of visiting in 2017, as it's probably the year I've managed to squeeze in the most mini trips (basically what my savings go to). If wanderlust isn't your thing, stay tuned for posts on movies and resolutions coming soon! But for now, here are my travel highlights of 2017.

MY PICK OF FESTIVE OUTFITS FOR EVERY CHRISTMAS OCCASION.

One of my favourite parts about the Christmas period, is that it's acceptable to be drunk at 12pm to wear red and sparkle and glitter as often as you like. I usually spend the 25th at my house for Christmas lunch which means I don't usually dress to the nine's, but there's always the office Christmas party, friends dinner do, the last Friday before Christmas eve, and of course the blow out of all blow outs, New Years Eve. NYE in Gibraltar is a funny one because I usually buy the most 'extravagant' dress to basically wander around the streets when I refuse to pay £100 for a ticket to a pretty average event. However this year, I'll be spending it in Barcelona, so you can already picture my excitement at being the human dancing woman emoji. Whatever your plans are this Christmas, here are my top picks for what to wear this party season.

5 OF THE BEST CHRISTMAS MARKETS TO VISIT IN EUROPE.

If you read my last post on getting into the Christmas spirit, one of my pointers was to indulge in all the lovely Christmas Markets that are taking place around the world. One thing they all have in common is that they are a great place to unite with friends, have a first date, stuff your face with food and drink and maybe pick up a few hand made pieces along the way. Of course, each city has its own charm complete with their unique goods and treats. If you're looking for a last minute christmas getaway, here are some of the best Christmas markets in Europe.

5 CITIES AT THE TOP OF MY USA BUCKETLIST (AND SHOULD BE ON YOURS).

Back in 2015 (forever ago I know) I had the great opportunity of living in Florida for 5 months on a student exchange. In that time I ventured around Florida and made a cheeky trip to New York but there is still a lot more of the U S of A I want to discover, as I feel like even though it's one big country there is a lot of contrast between states. From sunny California, to the dirty South, here are the top 5 cities in America that are sitting at the top of my bucket list.

HOW TO GET INTO THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT (FOR WHEN YOU'RE FEELING SLIGHTLY SCROOGEY).

It's taken me a whopping 5 days to write a post about Christmas, how very unbloggerish of me! Truth be told I am not the biggest Christmas fanatic, don't get me wrong I enjoy listening to Michael Buble's Christmas album and watching my fair share of holiday movies, but as I've got older (and certain life events have occurred) December has become somewhat of a bittersweet time for me. That being said, there are elements to Christmas time that I enjoy (mainly the food and parties) and if you're still feeling low on the festive scale, here are ways we can both get into the Christmas spirit!
