I've alluded to the fact that 2016 was a year of lessons for me a few times now and I've decided it's about time I share the six most important of these with you.

In April 2016, I sat down and published a post about "What To Expect From The Glitter Vixen in 2016." The fact that this didn't occur until the fourth month of the year says it all really. It was a bit vague, a bit wishy washy and well, I barely blogged at all, nevermind about the things I said I was going to blog about. Now it's 2017, I am feeling much more motivated to start blogging again and my life is a lot more stable so it's likely I'll actually find time to fit this blog into my life as well. I'm still a little unclear on what my grand vision for The Glitter Vixen actually is, but while I refine that, here's what I'm hoping to include on the blog this year:

As mentioned in my first post of the year, 2016 was a year of lessons for me. I learnt a lot about myself: what makes me happy, what makes me sad and some negative behavioural patterns. Rather than ignore the lessons I learnt and continuing to make a long line of mistakes, in 2017 I really want to start applying this knowledge and demonstrate I've actually learnt from my mistakes.

Goodness gracious, can you believe it is 2017 already?! When I finished work for 2016 over two weeks ago, I had every intention of spending my fortnight off in a way that was both productive and full of self care. I'd planned to take steps to kickstart this very blog back into life, I was determined to do a massive digital delclutter, I was going to set my intentions for the year ahead and I intended to spend my evenings relaxing with my colouring books and reading books.
Naturally, I've spent the past fortnight either in bed or gaming. Classic Emily.

Recently, I was lucky enough to be invited to a sneak preview of Reading's newest food and drinks venue, Revolucion de Cuba. I was over the moon when I found out that Reading was getting its very own Revs de Cuba. I visited the one in Milton Keynes earlier this year and it's hands down one of the best night's out I've had all year. At the time I only got to sample the amazing cocktails and dancefloor, but I spotted a tapas menu and I was dying to come back to give it a try!
