day seven : highlights.

So many great things have happened over the past year, but I think since 2011 started, things have been extra good (apart from a few blips, but everyone has those) Here are some of my most favourite things from this year....


I moved out of my Mum's house, and into a flat with one of my best friends, Kayley. I loved making it feel like home.


I entered a competition on a whim, and ended up in the final 12 in the Company Casting Call. I had an incredible day and I'm so proud I sucked up my anxieties and went, even if I wasn't one of the final 6 who got proper photoshoots!


A cute portrait of me by the lovely Ella Masters.


A friend asked me to model in her vintage-inspired dresses for her shop, Dandelions and Pearls.


My birthday was amazing. That's all I can say.


It might seem a bit lame, but I was really excited when my Dad put up my shelves by my desk. It meant I could get a little closer to having a functional workspace!


Making friends through blogging is awesome. Especially when that friend shares your love for food, and is really good at organising blogger meets so you can be friends in real life too.


It may have started with just a few pairs of shorts, but the Being Little Shop finally exists, and will get better and better.


I won a little competition that Emma held! So happy, I got the cutest lipstick, amongst other things.


Having a bit of fun with my hair and outfit post layout.


Meeting other bloggers has been a massive highlight for me. Meeting likeminded girls and having amazing days together. We've only had two so far, but the next one (17th December) is set to be the biggest and best yet!



Finally, I don't care how soppy this is, the biggest highlight for me is meeting Elliott properly, spending amazing days with him, and all of our little surprises. Best thing just keeps on getting better.

Today is the final day you can enter the giveaway! The winner will be chosen at random and announced tomorrow!
