My 2012 and New Years Resolutions

Hello everyone, so this is just a quick little lifestyle type post to recap on 2012 as a year for me.

I have to say, after having a major clear out of my Facebook 'friends' and really just focusing on my true friends, 2012 was a much better year for me. You really can count your true friends on one hand. After some tragic happenings towards the end of 2011, it really highlighted to me that in 2012, family will come first and that life really is too short, so make the most of it and make something of yourself. You're never too young to try out new things, just go for it, you never know where it could take you. Family will always be there. It was only in February 2012, that I decided to start this blog, this is 100% the best thing that came out of 2012. Who knows what the future holds.





In Summer 2012 I found out that I was going to London for my whole Summer to report on the Olympics for Samsung, after winning their Samsung Global Blogger competition, I made the most unreal friends and had the most unbelievable time, I don't think it can get better than been at the heart of the Olympics. It was beyond my wildest dreams to even enter, let alone win. I couldn't believe it that i'd even made it to the final. In August 2012, I worked for FRANK PR on a placement with my brother, working for the incredible and inspirational founder, Andrew Bloch - also in London. I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to take my brother to the Olympics closing ceremony with VIP seats, the fact that I could let my brother sample some of the Olympic spirit really was a highlight of 2012 for me.

October 2012 was incredible for me, I still can't believe I won the Cosmopolitan newcomer award and I still can't thank you all for your support. Nothing will beat that moment.






I was going to put a 'regrets of 2012' section on this post, but I don't think it's necessary, I believe that we learn from our mistakes, every mistake is a lesson and 'never regret something that once made you smile'. This is how I will continue to think in 2013.

Main highlights of 2012:
The whole of Summer
Living in London
Work placement at Frank PR - Camden
Reporting on the Olympics for Samsung.
Winning the Samsung Global Blogger competition.
Winning the Cosmopolitan Newcomer award.
Being in Cosmopolitan magazine.
Getting into a good University and starting my dream course.
Meeting my lovely flat mates.
STARTING MY BLOG.
Making my family proud.
Getting a press pass for Clothes Show Live
Being chosen as an Official Blogger for Manchester Fashion week 2013.
Going to some incredible bloggers events in London and Manchester.


I don't believe that we need a New Year in order to 'change', but if it's something that will motivate you, go for it, I like to set my self goals throughout the year, but here are some of my New Years resolutions this time.

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS:
- Focus on YouTube, give my lovely readers loads more high quality videos.
- Start my own online boutique - watch this space.
- Free some time for myself, so that I can blog more and chat to you all more.
- ALWAYS reply to all of your comments.
- Discover some new blogs.
- Make loads of new friends.
- Get a Victorias Secret type body for Summer.
- Get a work placement at SKYSPORTS and MTV this Summer.
- Get a real tan.
- Pass my first year at University.
- Stop swearing.
Have an incredible new year everyone. Remember, life is what you make of it. I couldn't have got this far without you all. Love, Em xxx

  27. I think its important to know who your friends are, and not just people who are hangers on. It makes life so much more enjoyable and fun.
