All The Vibes of 2016

I’d like to think that with every passing year, EKD is all the wiser and this year, I actually feel I am. Well when I say wiser, perhaps I mean happier? or content? or maybe this is just how one feels when the notion Gucci is life is finally realised? This year, I began to feel like myself – Yes I know, what a peculiar idea. But it’s true, I’ve never felt more like myself than I do now and I believe this has somewhat contributed to the overall success of my 21st year. I spent too much time on trains this year however, I refined the art of clutching my handbag in my lap whilst snoozing ungracefully on a 7am commute. I also ate more Italian food than ever and found myself eagerly planning all the trips I intend to take in 2017. My list is as follows (in no particular order) Rome, Florence, Milan and Paris. This list, which is constantly being added to, will be completed by next Christmas and I can’t …

15 Moments From 2015

I find it’s so easy to forget all the things you do in a year, so I have gone back through my calendar and Instagram to put together 15 memorable moments from 2015. It doesn’t feel a year ago since I did a similar round up of 2014… I’m definitely not where I hoped I would be this time last year, however new goals are set and I’m ready to make 2016 a more positive and productive year. I’m not going to go on a cliché rant about evolving and being a ‘new me’ or rubbish like that, 2016 is simply a new number to title my day planner, however I have good feelings about this one! I not only went blonde in 2015, but I cut my hair short! I was feeling Kim K Paris Fashion week and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley vibes and surprised not only myself but my hair stylist too! I don’t imagine I will ever have long hair again… My first ever article was published this year and I have to say, it is one …

2014

Be it Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, each is currently bursting with New Year wishes, thanks and details of the ‘amazing year’. I am staggered by how great 2014 was for so many as I scroll down to see ‘2014 was my best year yet, bring on 2015!’ over fifty times. This past year certainly flew by quicker than I ever anticipated. I wish I could join the masses and praise the last 12 months but 2014 has been the hardest year of my life, with each month came new and unexpected setbacks, right from the get-go. However, there were a few highlights… My Dad turned the big 5-0, my brother graduated with a First Class Honours Degree, my sister moved into a beautiful new house, I started writing EKD and most importantly, Frankie Doo turned one! 2014 was also the year I discovered Suits, Amelia Liana, denim on denim, Diptique, Gossip Girl, Lena Dunham, The Great British Bake-Off, scrunchies, Tyler Oakley, Magic Cream, Covetique and Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer! In the last twelve months, I …
