With Christmas just gone by  and the end  end of the year around the corner, I felt the need to share with you guys some thoughts about what this year has been like for me.

Let me jus start by saying that every year, around this time , I start thinking about New Year’s resolutions, which in the end are most likely to never happen, either because of laziness or because there is this thing that gets in the way of your  plans, which is called LIFE.

But after this year, I feel like I really have my mind set on what I’d like to achieve in 2017, and I will put all my strength and effort to make sure it happens.

So here’s what my thoughts are on the year 2016

  1. I feel like every year passes by quickly, but 2016 really went by in the blink of an eye.
  2. I went on a wonderful holiday with my family for the first time in years. It felt really good as I don’t get to see them often, and had an amazing time in Mexico.
  3. I got promoted at my workplace: TWICE.
  4. I then left my workplace a few months later, to move  on to a job that now suits my student lief much better.
  5. I finally got my own place
  6. I started my blog, and though finding it very hard to keep up with posts and social media , I do not regret starting it when I did.
  7. I went to my first Blogging events.
  8. I met Mimi from Maison Mimi  and did an awesome collaboration with her.
  9. I enrolled back into the gym( regularly going will have to wait till 2017…).
  10. I watched almost 100 films this year, some good, some bad, but achieved one of my previous year New Years’s resolutions which was  to watch more films(guess at least one of the resolutions was achieved!).
  11. My boyfriend flew with me to my hometown and met my family.
  12. I met his family.
  13. I struggled with stress and the worst anxiety but I am slowly finding ways to overcome it, or at least to reduce it.
  14. I often had moments where I thought I’d have a nervous breakdown.
  15. I finally got a Mac, and will never regret it!
  16. I became a stronger person and I am ready to take over 2017!

These are just some of the things that make 2016 a year I will definitely remember.

What are the things that you’ll remember about this year?                                                                Leave a comment down below with your 2016 thoughts!

Until next time! Love Isa xx

  2. Ciao Isa,
    Your posts are INSPRATIONAL. I hope you achieve great things in 2017. As you said, we hardly achieve every goal we desire but it’s a positive attitude to set out goals for yourself, since you don’t have an obligation to fulfil them. 2016 went by swiftly and had it’s fair share of both good/bad events. There are a few achievements that i am proud of. I bought a MacBook which made me very very happy and although the family didn’t agree with me, I have no regrets at all. I had also developed as a person as I finally got the courage to speak of my mind, and fought to get my message across. That worked well for me and feel liberated and will hopefully continue in the years to come. Also, in 2016 I paid more attention to my studies and really stared to enjoy it.
    I am hoping for 2017 to be a more fruitful year and tick as many boxes as humanly possible, and wish the same for everyone.

    Thanks xx

  3. I loved reading this post Izzy! 2016 was definitely a great year for me and I really matured and became happier/more confident with myself! I also had a great deal more life experience with my travelling and also starting a new chapter of my life: university. I can’t wait for what the new Year will bring!
