2014 has been a good year, looking back there have been plenty of adventures, lots of laughs and generally a nice time has been had.  Here’s to a great 2015, may it be the best yet!


Here are just few highlights of my 2014.

The gloomy month of January began with a trip to London for the day.  I went down on my own and took part in an enjoyable course.  it was quite fun travelling alone for a change!

Arrived at Kings Cross

In February I took part in a Mavic training course for Pennine Cycles.  I was the only female there – It’s fun being a trailblazer in a male dominated industry!

I also put out my first makeup tutorial on my YouTube channel especially for Valentine’s Day.

July was all about the Tour de France, in fact most of the year was about it!  In the build up I spoke to local businesses about how they could get involved.  Then I attended conferences, networking events and fashion shows which all led to the best weekend ever!

To make sure there was no anti-climax after Le Tour I kept with the sporting theme and enjoyed some of the British summer with a trip to York Races and a day at Manchester including Afternoon Tea at Manchester House with stunning views of the city.

December is of course all about Christmas and in the build up I had a jam packed diary which included Arbonne’s Christmas Party, tea with friends, a Mercedes Car Presentation, a trip to Manchester Christmas market and the press launch of the Tour de Yorkshire.  These are all documented on my Instagram, along with lots more photos from the year!

So that was my whirlwind of 2014 in a page!  It was a great year and I can’t wait to see what 2015 has to bring.  A new year brings with it new goals and I am ready to go!
