This year has been a huge year of changes and along the way, I've made some amazing memories. Here are some of the standout moments of 2017 for me, personally!

Explorer stood by the river in Stockholm with Kanken backpack



I had the chance to visit Sweden with three of my best pals this year and we had SUCH a great time. Not only did we get to explore Stockholm, we took a trip to the ABBA museum to celebrate our love for pop music.

Read more about our trip here (the food, drink and general fabulousness of Stockholm) and here (ABBA!)

Wall of Harry Potter artwork from Minalima, London

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child


Having bought tickets almost a year in advance, myself, my mum and my sister headed for a weekend in London, topped off by seeing the popular play based on J.K. Rowling's wizarding world.

It was all I expected and so much more and I couldn't recommend it enough if you're a HP fan. Also, make sure to take a trip to the Minalima store around the corner from the theatre, to see all the original artwork done for the films.

Flags waving in blue sky at Glastonbury Festival 2017

Glastonbury Festival


Each and every year, this place gets better and better. Without a doubt my favourite place in the world; Glastonbury 2017 brought me the opportunity to see the Foo Fighters live for the first time ever (cheers Dave for keeping both legs intact!)

Here's my vlog and photo diary of this year's festival if you didn't get chance to go this year.

Four friends at a Summer wedding

Charlotte and Phil's Wedding


My best friend of many years actually became a WIFE. What the heck.

Even now it's hard to believe I'm at an age where marriage is on the cards but I could not have been happier to share my day with the beautiful couple. It was a lovely weekend all in all and we even got the sunshine they'd been hoping for!

After I proclaimed a couple of years ago that I would never camp at this festival again, I spontaneously bid on two guest camp tickets at a charity auction and it was the best decision I made this year.

My best gig pal and I had the best time I've ever had at this festival; from swaying to Bear's Den and finally going on the big wheel, to band member spotting in the guest bar area and dancing heavily to 70s disco. Lots of fun, lots of laughs and plenty of cider.
