Another year and what a year it has been! I went through the archives of this year and was so surprised to see that I had red hair this year. I completely forgot and actually questioned myself, was that really this year? How time flies! I did a post like this last year and it's one I look forward to, and also seeing other bloggers highlights too! When I sat down and thought about it I decided to do a little youtube video to reflect on it. I haven't done a video in a very long time, so I figured this would be a nice way to break the ice.
January February March
Now it sounds ridiculous but if i didn't write a diary, instagram and document my life the way I do I really don't think I would of remembered half the stuff that happened earlier this year. I was flicking through my diary and was astonished to see that we had snow earlier this year! How did I completely forget that? It hit us pretty bad in Kent and that meant for me I had a snow day or two off work to go build snowmen which was fun! I went to London Fashion Week and saw some incredible shows. My baby nephew was born and I started making my own clothes.
April May June
I had a magical photoshoot with the incredible Kitty Gallannaugh which was amazing and she took some of my most favourite shots of all time. The beautiful blossom on the trees was out in full bloom and the bluebells came out in my local woodland. I had a social gathering with lots of University friends up north in Newcastle which was really fun! I had my 26th Birthday in Brighton and it rained all day! Alas I was treated to a fabulous lobster lunch and spoiled with lots of lovely gifts. I won the Miss Patina 'Artist Within' competition which was the best surprise ever! I never thought in a million years I would win and I won the most beautiful dress ever! (June dress!).
July August September
I think from about July onwards I was on a blogging roll, the weather was glorious and I was working flexible hours at Cath Kidston. This meant I could roam about in the local fields after work documenting what I was wearing which was great. I went to Twinwood Festival which I'm not exaggerating was probably one of my biggest highlights of 2013 for me and one of my favourite blog to photograph and write.
October November December
Now from October that's when it got kind of tricky in Cinnamon land, the hours grew shorter, I started a new job and ran out of time to blog. December was a fantastic month as I got to go to the Christmas Bath blogger meet up which was lovely as I got to see lots of fellow bloggers and have a wonder around the market and museum.
So here's to a new year, a new start and thank you so much to all of you who read The Cinnamon Slipper. You really have no idea what that means to me that you keep coming back time and time again. I have received some really lovely messages and comments from people all over the world in the past year. I treasure so many of your words and I honestly and truly thank you for it!
