I'm writing this 2015 round up post from New York, which pretty much sums up my year. 2015 has been one of the best yet. I've been fortunate enough to travel to some amazing places including New York (now for a second time), Paris, Copenhagen, the South of France, Dublin and Belfast. I got a new job in June, was promoted this month and my blog was also Highly Commended in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards - both moments that have helped to inject so much confidence back in me.

Without being too soppy, my year wouldn't have been so fantastic if it wasn't for my wonderful boyfriend - my best friend. We've had some amazing times together and he's treated me like a princess from the moment we met.

I hope you've had a fantastic year, but if not, I hope 2016 is full of happiness for you. If 2016 is anything as good as 2015 was for me, then I'm a lucky girl.

Have a great time celebrating, and I'll see you in 2016! Happy New Year!
