2013 In Review

Hey Little Ones,
With 2014 fast approaching its made me think back on
all the things that have happened in 2013.
I've had a lot of ups and downs, that is safe to say.
2013 started off amazingly, I had a lot of hopes and dreams ready for the year ahead.
However they soon took a sharp turn when I was told I would be needing an operation on my elbow.
This led to a spiral of a tiny bit depression and causing my then relationship to break up.
The break up did cause me to think about what I actually wanted to do with my life.
It was almost like a second chance really, after being with someone for over two years of your life and thinking that your future was with them it was time to get back out there and see the world!
And what better way then heading off to Thailand for 2 weeks
with two of your bestest friends!
This was exactly what I needed after a turbulent first 5 months to start 2013.
Thailand was one of the most amazing places I've ever been to in all my life.
It's on my list to go back to as I'd love to explore more of northern Thailand and Bangkok.
There is two whole blog posts about my time in Thailand
Here and here.
This marked the start of Lola's Little Wonders!
Thailand marked the start of the summer for me.
As in June I went off to Malia with another 2 of my closest chums,
Nicola & Stacey.
Yes this was your typical girls holidays, but I think from the moment we left for the airport
to the moment I got back home we were laughing so much.

After abusing my liver so much with the girlies, I come home and it was my birthday!
I got to spend the day with my little sister at The Harry Potter Studio Tour.
There is a whole blog post up about the day just click here.

It was around this time that I realised how lucky I am to have my best chums in my life,
they made my entire birthday night out which I hardly remember.
I knew then that I was finally back to being the Lola I was over a year ago who felt a little lost!

In August it was time for V Festival.
There was 10 of us that went all together and it was one of the best weekends of 2013.
A weekend camping with your best chums and seeing Beyonce, that is up there in the top 10 of all time.
There's more about V Festival and all the outfits I wore that weekend over here.

With August fading away into the background I realised that I needed one last holiday!
So I called up my chum Emma.M and suggested we head to Ibiza for some of the closing parties.
This was non stop party central, I came back less rested than when I went.
There's more about my time in Ibiza here.

This brought us to the Winter months.
Meaning no more summer holidays or festivals, instead it was a lot of time spent with my best chums at
each other's houses, be it making homemade pizzas, getting a takeaway and watching a film or having a sleepover. It's little nights like those that make you appreciate each other and also saves you some pennies!
To see some of my highlights of 2013 in a quick little video to my song of the year just click

I honestly feel like despite the rocky start of 2013 this has been one of the best years of my life!
From May onwards I have been lucky enough to have two promotions at work as well as going on holiday to some amazing places.
2013 is going to be a tough one to beat but I'm looking forward to what 2014 brings, especially here on Lola's Little Wonders.

So a big thank you to all of you little ones that have followed me on GFC, Bloglovin', Twitter and Instagram!
Without you I wouldn't be climbing the blogging ladder like I am!
Here's to 2014, let's make it better than the last!

Until next time...
