Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Years Eve. I’ve had a little blogging hiatus for the last few days. It’s good to just spend time focusing on your family and friends and leave the laptop alone for a bit! But now I’m back and looking forward to all the opportunities and moments coming up in 2015.
I spent my New Year in Belfast with my lovely friends. It was such a great trip, although I’m wrecked from it now! A few of us went up to Belfast on the 30th and did a little shopping. We had a delicious meal that night in Shiro with the tastiest cocktails. After that we went to Rita’s for an after dinner cocktail. We decided to have an early enough night that night due to New Years Eve being the next day.

The next day, five of us went on the Black Cab Tour of Belfast which was so interesting. We all really wanted to do something cultural and not just shop as many of us have been to Belfast before but haven’t done many cultural things. We went to the Peace Wall and got to sign all our names. Game of Thones fans will appreciate the fact that when I tried to take a picture of me pointing at my name, I missed completely and pointed at a certain famous saying!
Afterwards, we met the rest of the group for some dinner and drinks. We headed to the Merchant Hotel for another cocktail afterwards. It was so beautiful and decorated for the New Years Eve party. I would definitely recommend going there if you are ever in Belfast.
We headed back to the Hilton where we were staying to get ready. I felt like I was having one of those evenings when things weren’t working out too well. My hair wasn’t curling the way it normally would, my make up wasn’t working and I was feeling a bit blah. Luckily my lovely roommate Sarah snapped me out of that and it all ended up looking ok!

We went out to China White and it was the perfect place to ring in the New Year. The music was brilliant, the drinks were flowing and I was with a group of brilliant, lovely girls. No better way to ring in the New Year than with your friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful New Years Eve with loved ones. Thank you for reading in 2014, it has meant the world to me to see your comments and read your blogs in return. I wish you all love, happiness, friendship, health and fun in 2015!
