The Memory Jar

Images c/o tumblr

It's the last day of 2012 today! I always get quite nostalgic on the last day of each year, I find it so strange that after today it will never be 2012 again - it's quite sad really. Plus, 2013 sounds so weird and futuristic-y...or is that just me?

Annnyways, a few days ago I discovered this little project - 'The Memory Jar' or 'Good Times Jar' and I love the concept. The idea is that you start 2013 with an empty jar and each time something makes you smile during the year, you write it down, fold it up and place it in the jar. On New Years Eve you tip the jar out and reminisce the best times of the year gone by. I love the idea of making the jar look all pretty and archiving them for years to come, I think it's really cute to be able to look back and remember the good times you may have forgotten.  

I hope you all have an amazing New Years Eve, however you're celebrating!

I'm back!

Woah it's been forever since I last posted! It all started when I moved house and for some ridiculous reason had no internet connection for 6 weeks! (I know, it was a struggle) We finally got the connection fixed on the 17th December and on the 23rd I flew out to America to spend Christmas with my Dad and step-mum, the plan was to keep myself from blogging until after my January exams, but I missed y'all so much and have a list of post ideas so I just want to start right now, who needs A-levels anyway right?

Since I've been gone I moved house, turned 17, found out I was going to be a big sister for the first time ever, celebrated 1 year with my lovely boyfriend and obviously there was Christmas! It's been rather busy but I have to say 2012 has been a great year for me!

Santa brought me a leather jacket, Jeffrey Campbell Cross Damsels, a new opal ring (I lost the other one whilst on work experience with Next), a silver unicorn ring, nail polishes, Miss Selfridge beaded shorts and lots of other lovely things, I'm a very lucky girl!

I hope you've all had a very merry Christmas and I wish you all an amazing New Year!
It's good to be back,

Love Ellen xx
