|Moments that Mattered|
The lovely folk over at Lloyds Bank have a fab campaign running at the moment where you share the Moments that Mattered over 2013, including their adorable video which you can watch here. Personally for me 2013 has been a whirlwind of an adventure, it was practically my my make or break year with so much happening from graduating university to not only getting one but two full time jobs.
My first photo is my third year dissertation, something I thought I'd never be able to complete. Literally blood, sweat and tears went into the project so to see it in its finished form was amazing, and still brings back so many stressful memories. I can safely say I haven't been able to watch any of the films studied since writing my dissertation.
Next up we have the boys graduation, he managed to get a 2:1 in Law and has now continued to carry on his studies at university. He worked so hard to achieve this grade and was a proud girlfriend.
Every October has turned into a family tradition where we go to London for my brothers birthday, mainly to go Drop Dead shopping but we do also like to do the touristy things also and this includes visiting Madame Tussauds in London, and one of the latest waxworks there was ET. How cute!
In August my closest ex-work girlies and I went on a Bank Holiday weekend holiday (so many holidays) to Newquay. We all had such a fab time, and plenty of hangovers! Despite the 4 hour drive, I really had a fab time and would love to go back as the atmosphere is amazing.
So with leaving university it meant entering the real world and with getting a full time job, it meant leaving my part time job. I had been there since the shop had opened which was nearly 3 years ago, and met so many amazing friends who I will keep in touch with for years to come. So there is a little photo from my leaving do.
A cheeky TGI photo made the cut also, I went there for my 22nd birthday in November. The cocktails are to die for there, along with great food and company made a perfect night. Just for reference I think this was a Strawberry Daiquiri.
Last year I had the opportunity to attend to uni's Graduation Ball, which was an amazing night. With the chance to dress up in a ball gown I wasn't going to say no, and everyone who attended received this little gift which included a BCU mug, Haribo sweets and a rocket balloon - such a random mix.
I have harped on about uni a lot during this, but the next photo is the official later stating that I received a first class honours degree. When I first started uni I was content with the idea of getting a 2:1 thinking a 1st was something I'd never achieve. Well 3 years later I worked my ass off and managed to achieve the one thing I didn't think was possible.
The next photo is from my Graduation Ball, and the two girls featured in the photo are my best friends from uni along with our other halves. I have met some truly amazing people during my time at uni, and now work full time with the one and cannot wait to see the other at graduation in March.
Lastly is a photo of my desk at my new job, so like I said since finishing uni I have had the opportunity to get two full time jobs. I love my job, I work in social media for a jewellery company and honestly couldn't ask for a better job. They even got me the iMac just a couple of weeks after being there.
So they were my top moments of 2013! I'd love to know yours!
