Confessions 2016/2017 (tag)


When I first started blogging (quite a few years ago) I remember the flood of tag’s that were always on the go. I adored reading them and getting to know my blog buddies through a wide range of fun questions… then somehow they disappeared into the virtual void & I rarely spotted them again – until now that is.

Needless to say the gorgeous Sarah from Sarah’s Cup Of Beauty, tagged me recently and so akin to my retro blogging ways I just had to roll up my sleeves and give it a go – particularly when as the word ‘Confession’ is involved 😉  Anyways, if you’ve a few minutes to spare or fancy giving this a go yourself then get comfy and keep reading…


Describe your 2016 in 3 words

Surprising, transformative, eventful


Write the name of 2 people that have characterised your 2016.

My husband, Steve. No matter what, he never fails to support whatever I do. Most definitely a huge part of the driving force behind my goals ❤

My daughter, Emma, who makes me feel so incredibly blessed to be a mama.


Write the most delicious food you’ve tasted in 2016

Hmmm, that’s a good question – honestly, I’d have to say smoked salted-chilli chicken with noodles. It’s amazing! Nom 🙂


Write the event which marked you most in 2016.

The decline of my health. When chronic illness hit me I felt utterly isolated in so many ways, particularly being so young. Thankfully keeping my focus on goals (that I can achieve) really has helped me to get through each day with an aim in mind.


Write the finest purchase you’ve made in 2016, and if you want link a photo.

My nail practice hand. Sounds utterly bizarre, but with so many new nail products on the market it gives me a chance to test them all out on something that is such a great help. Definitely a worth while investment for any nail tech J


Write 3 good intentions for 2017

1. Be as active as possible without letting chronic pain terrify me into exclusion.

2. Work on some really exciting projects.

3. Spend as much quality time with my family as possible – they come first and foremost!


Write 1 place you want to visit in 2017

Considering that I’m absolutely terrified of flying I won’t be going very far…. As much as I dream of visiting the United States one day, it feels like it may never happen – unless I manage to overcome my fears! For now, it might just be the local beach…. having said that it’s pretty darn beautiful so no major grumbles here. The weather could be a bit nicer for it though!


Write 1 plate of food you’d like to eat in 2017.

My Christmas dins – yep, sounds bizarre so early in the year but if I make it to Christmas and spend it with those that mean the most then I’m as happy as can be!


Here are the tag rules:

1. Mention the creator of the TAG.

2. Use the image that you find in this article.


3. Mention the blogger who has chosen you.

4. Answer the questions.

5. Mention 9 bloggers/friends and let them know through a comment on their blog.


And the nominations are….


Okay so I might be a bit of a rule breaker.. but without tagging a heap of my blog buddies I thought I’d leave this one open for the any of you lovely lot to attempt.

Feel free to use my main image (very top) or you can use the one above that has been supplied by the original poster.

Don’t forget to give me a mention so I can check out yours too, I’d love to read your answers!

A huge ‘thank you’ to the lovely Sarah over at Sarah’s Cup Of Beauty for nominating me… do pop over and say a huge hello, she’s super friendly!
