2015 - Looking Forward To Exciting Times :)


Something a little bit different today..

I know I'm probably talking at the wrong part of the year, posts like these are all for the New Year Resolutions kind of things. But I have been reflecting on life at the moment and I am making 2015 a good year, a year to live a little and do the things I want too. I have to admit, I am bloody excited. I get a massive grin across my face when I think about some of the things I have planned or hope to do.

- Alan Carr Live

This time last year I saw Jimmy Carr Live, he is my ultimate favourite comedian - even his infamous laugh gets me giggling. But then last Sunday for girls night, I saw Alan Carr's 'Yap Yap Yap' Tour. So I was really excited to see how they compare. Alan Carr was hilarious I will admit, it was well worth seeing. He is funny in a different kind of way to Jimmy though. Jimmy is a bit more rude which I kind of like, where as Alan is more reserved and very camp. My stomach was hurting by the end from all the laughter. I do wish stand ups lasted longer though! We are looking to book in to see Jimmy Carr again this year :)

Fuerteventura Holiday

This will be Corey's first ever time abroad, We fly in TWO DAYS - I can not even explain how excited I am right now :) It's been a good 6 years since I last went abroad too. Not sure whether I should be worried about the 4 hour plane fight though. Expect lots of pictures upon my return :) A good excuse to practice my non existent camera skills!

- Pass My Driving Test

If you read my New Year Resolutions post here, then you would have seen that before Christmas I passed my theory. I have been learning to drive, and well frankly I suck big time. But my test is booked and hopefully I will pass my test this year with a bit of luck :) This will open a whole new door of adventures for me and I am excited at the possibilities.

- Girls Weekend Away at Centre Parcs

The girls are coming round tonight for takeaway and movies. But mainly to book our weekend away at the end of May. It's an early 22nd birthday for me :) I haven't been on a girls weekend since I was 16, a few days after I found out I was pregnant with Corey - so of course the drinking plans went out the window. Well not this time :) It is going to be a bit of a pamper, silly, drunken weekend. We plan to book some time in the Spa too - never been to a Spa before, so I am already excited to book in for a massage! It will be good to get away with them & have some fun :)

- Courses

I have toyed with the idea of college for a really long time. I started and quit twice when I was younger. Back in 2013, I started a job as a Tutor. Frankly when I started I had no idea what I was doing. But I was young and it was an apprenticeship. I had no idea that would be the profession I want for the rest of my life. I left due to the fact I didn't gain my qualification after almost a year. I didn't even start it. But now I am looking at going to college to gain this. I don't want a long term course as I don't feel I could commit. However, in June they are offering a two week intense course. So fingers crossed all goes well and I could possibly be doing what I want to do :) It would be such a huge first step to my career!

- Day Trips Out

Some of these include Harry Potter Studio Tours, Cadburys World and Gullivers Land. Mainly Sealife London though! I love day trips out, it is my favourite thing to do. They are costly though and certainly add up when you want to do a few. Usually I do the odd zoo etc here and there. But those are the top three I would love to visit this year :) Last year our absolute favourite was LegoLand.

- Blogging Events

The number one main event being Brit Mums, I really hope I get to attend. I'm not sure if this is 100% possible yet, probably not without a sponsor. Last year was so fun though - read about it here and here. The hotel is already booked though to share with Andrea and Vicki - nice to catch up face to face rather than over skype! You learn a fair bit from workshops, get to attend the bloggers award ceremony, meet some amazing brands but mainly the social aspect is just amazing. Meeting all the lovely faces you talk to daily through the screens and creating friends, in my case even some best friends.

Last year I was going to plan a #mblogchat mummy bloggers community event, but it just wasn't the right time for me to fully commit. I had so many exciting plans and ideas. But I didn't want to do it without giving my 100% to make it amazing for everyone. The community is growing massively though so maybe in the later part of this year I may be able to re-look at this and actually go through with it this time :)

- Wireless Festival

I'm not usually one for the typical festival, you will never see me camping and not washing etc. Whole idea creeps me out so much. But Wireless is just a day thing, not sure on the big crowds but it would be worth it. Last year I didn't go when Bruno Mars was headlining - I don't know why. I regret it still. This year we were planning to go but at the moment still unsure as not all acts have been confirmed yet. But Sunday is looking good with David Guetta, Nicki Minaj and Jessie J. Anyone been before or plan on going?

- Blogging

Okay so I am a self-employed blogger, I am pretty happy with my situation at the moment and am growing my blog, slowly and steadily. After my holiday I will be doing some blog changes and new exciting content, so keep an eye out :) 


I'm looking forward to making this year positive, fun and all round just a great year. Time to start making the most of life and living in the moment, doing things for myself and for Corey. Plus working towards where I want to go :) 

So what have you got planned for this year that you are particuarly looking forward too? Will I hopefully be seeing any of you at Brit Mums? :) Let me know in the comments..

Love, Gemma xo
