Happy New Year everyone! I hope your not feeling to delicate this morning from partying the last year away with a bang. My evening in with the laptop and a mug of hot chocolate was certainly a wild one ;) With staying in this new year I decided to put my spare time to good use and do a little extra bonus post for the new year looking back at my top 5 blog posts of the year. Enjoy!

Over the past year on our wonderings me and Tom have managed to get some lovely little collections of style blog photos. It was a tough choice with so many to choose from but I think I’ve managed to narrow it down to my 2 favourites.
My favorite location would have to be shooting at the Grand Central shopping centre in Birmingham. Still in its nice brand new shiny state we got some great little shots here from the lovely walk ways to the escalators at the back!
Outfit wise this one would probably be my favourite all due to the orange coat. With my annual task of finding a winter coat when finding this orange one this year I knew it would be the perfect statement item addition to my wardrobe for my winter wardrobe. With the autumnal leaves all out in full force it was a lovely orangey yellow backdrop was perfect for this look.
This year at Fabric Forward we went headlong into christmas with a collection of specially festive features. My favourite has to the one focusing on my own brand of Chloe Natalie Knott hand made makeup bags, pretty much for my cute christmassy christmas tree background alone! (and couldn’t resist a slight plug of my own products :P)

I think this post had to be dedicated to all my friends who will remember the days of me setting their tea towels on fire (I don’t like cooking on gas!) I think this post had to be dedicated to all my friends who will remember the days of me setting their tea towels on fire (I don’t like cooking on gas!) With moving away to university this year, in order to fend for myself cooking an obvious everyday necessity. With finding that I can actually create edible and surprisingly tasty food I wanted to branch out from various versions of the same pasta dish to baking. (And with the boredom of student life it wasn’t a bad way to pass the time.) On my first attempt these raspberry and white chocolate muffins were what I created and I was chuffed on their lovely taste and couldn’t resist sharing the recipe on the the blog.
Helping to expose new and up and coming brands has always been a focus for the blog with so many brilliant new brands out there. My favourite brand focus of this year would have to be the joint one I did for Mulk and Ding Ding. These were 2 brands which when I found I instantly brought and fell in love with Mulk’s bright and simple geometric patterns and Ding Dings beautiful hand screen printed designs.
It’s been a great 6 months here on the blog and I can’t believe it has been that long, it go so fast! Stay tuned into the new year I have lots of new and exciting things planned and I can’t wait to get cracking!
