My Top 16 Moments of 2016

Hi chums!

I hope you are all having a fab New Year's Eve!

2016 has been one of my favourite years but at the same time one of my least favourite years (very mixed emotions here!) but I decided I wanted to look at the glass half full so I have chosen 16 of my favourite days/moments of 2016. 

I couldn't rank them so I decided to just do them chronologically.... so let's get started!

1. The Colosseum - I was so excited to visit the Colosseum in Rome because it is such an iconic landmark and it did not disappoint! Although it doesn't take long to look around it was so impressive and perfect for photography (especially with such amazing weather!)

2. Easter Party - one of my aims for 2016 was to celebrate everything possible and so that definitely included Easter! My family decided to throw a tea party and invite some of our family friends round. We of course did an Easter egg hunt (you can never be too old!) and we had so much fun cooking and decorating for it!

3. Going up the cathedral in Salamanca, Spain - Salamanca is SO beautiful! I would 100% recommend going to visit if you can because all the buildings are so pretty! One of my favourite moments in Salamanca was going up the cathedral where we saw some amazing views and got to see the architecture at the top of the cathedral in more detail.

4. Venice - 'nuff said. Venice is my absolute favourite (other than Disneyland of course!)! Every step you take is another picture perfect scene. I can't recommend going here enough. It's possibly my favourite city in the world because it's so insanely beautiful and also so unique - there isn't a car in sight!

5. 18th and 21st Party - me and my sister are lucky that we are both summer babies which meant that it was perfect for us to team together to have our birthday party together this year. It was honestly one of my favourite days of the year because we got to share it with all of our family and friends!

6. Notting Hill - I sure am a sucker for some coloured houses! I made my first trip to Notting Hill this year on my sister's birthday and we spent some of the afternoon wandering around the streets of Notting Hill (pretending to be Julia Roberts!) and taking a lot of pictures!

7. Touring Buckingham Palace - despite living 30 minutes outside London my family and I have never been inside Buckingham Palace. It has been on our list for the last few years and this year we finally got around to doing it. We had a lot of fun looking around the rooms, the only sad thing was that you weren't allowed to take any pictures :(

8. Summer day in London - my sister and I went to London in early August and just had the most chilled day ever. We started off in Belgravia at Peggy Porschen's and the whole day was just a dream (and baking hot as well!)

9. Day trip to Brighton - for the last few years my sister and I have always spent a day in Brighton in the summer holidays and this year we decided to drive there and make it a road trip which was super fun! We also went to see the coloured beach huts which we hadn't been to before and let's just say the Insta opportunities were poppin'!

10. Sunset boat trip in Key West - possibly the most favourite thing I've done this year was to go on a boat trip in Key West where we watched the famous sunset and it did not disappoint! I've never seen anything like it and I couldn't put my camera down the whole time!

11. Beauty and the Beast - this is something slightly random, but I love this show so much! This show is in Disney's Hollywood Studios and it's so fun to go and see and sing along to all the songs!

12. Disney's Halloween decorations - we went to Florida later than we usually do this year which meant that all the Halloween decorations were up! We have never seen these before and it was so pretty! Autumn/Fall is my favourite season because I love all the colours and Disney did not let me down!

13. Fountains Abbey - this was a super fun day trip up in the north of England! We spent the day wandering around the abbey and the grounds and taking a million and one photos!

14. Pumpkin patch - as I said already, I looove Autumn and Halloween is a major part of that! This year I went to a pumpkin patch for the first time and I really enjoyed it - especially the cute tiny pumpkins which they called munchkins!

15. Autumn walk - my sister and I are extremely obsessed with the trees changing colour in Autumn, so one Sunday morning we got up early and made our way to the park in Leeds to go on a walk and take lots of photos. I love doing really simple things like this - it's so fun and makes my day!

16. The Fashion Awards in London - this event is really fun to go to! We arrived early and saw some of the celebs arrive on the red carpet (including Naomi Campbell!!) and then we had a really nice evening watching the show!

So those are my favourite moments of 2016! I would love to hear yours so please leave a comment down below!

I hope you have the best time tonight and....
