My Top Blog Posts Of 2017

Blog post

I have been very interested to see what blog posts you have been reading the most.  Last year I was very surprised to see my top read post was a make up post about Benefit Brow Shaping Kit.  I’m even more surprised to see that the same post is the 15th most popular post this year.  By no means am I a beauty blogger but this post has gone down so well with you my readers.   It makes me think should I do some more beauty reviews?  I’ve done a couple of fashion posts this year and I loved reviewing the clothes for two very different brands.  I’ve had a few ideas where I could develop my beauty and fashion blog posts and I hope to get some of this plans to fruition during the first quarter of 2018.  In 2017, my top posts are:

25 Things I Learned In Life

This post was written the day after my birthday on the train ride home.  It was a hard post to write and I didn’t post it for a couple of days.  I’d had an upsetting incident happen on my birthday and my then partners response really upset me.  I don’t think he realised that I lay there and cried myself to sleep.  The next day’s events started what was to finish our relationship.  I can never forgive his actions or rather lack of action regarding what was happening and realise now I should have ended things there and then as I received very little support from then on and was pushed out, pushed out as the whole truth was very close to being found out by me.  When it all came out, his lack of action showed that he was nowhere near the man I thought he was, instead, a people pleaser, telling those what he thinks they want to hear.  I have spent far too many years surrounded by people like that.

This year I am going to go back and revisit my life lessons and reintroduce them to my life as this year I fully intend to Embrace my personal happiness.

Afternoon Tea At Chatsworth House

Afternoon Tea is a large part of my life.  I love to drink tea and really do drink it by the bucket load and what better to go with tea than sandwiches, scones and cakes?  Chatsworth House is stunning and one of my favourite Estates that we are lucky to have in the UK.  The tea was delightful.

Cocktail Afternoon Tea At Dunsley Hall, Staffordshire

Dunsley Hall is only a few miles from where I love and is a converted country house.  One of the lovely teas of the year and the cocktails which very refreshing and gave quite a kick!

I’m really happy that 2 of the 3 posts are afternoon tea as this is really one of my true passions and I so enjoy having days and even weekends away have all types of afternoon teas.  I have a quite a few that I have already eaten late last year and didn’t get round to sharing with you.  I’ve got a Sushi Afternoon Tea in Birmingham, a Royal Afternoon Tea at Kensington Palace and a Churchill theme Tea in London to name but a few.  I’m really looking forward to new blogging adventures in 2018 and hoping to stay along the same theme of the top 5 posts for this year and to try to incorporate some foodie travels along the way.  But one thing I am very certain about after being so ill this year that I am going to EMBRACE all the things that come in to my life, be these good things, bad things or just plain ugly things.  One thing this past years has taught me is to look close to those who are in my life, put my happiness first and just go out and enjoy life and live it too its full every second.

    I’m a huge tea fan — both the beverage and the ritual. A friend needed a boost a couple weeks ago and, like me, nothing gives her a lift quite as much as a lovely afternoon tea. So that’s what we did, and we were amazed at how much better we felt afterward. I love reading other people’s afternoon tea experiences, too, so … Keep up the good work!
