Reflection…

HAPPY NEW YEAR! HERE’S TO 2017, WAHOOO!

Okay, enough with the corny! Let’s get into what I’m reaaally here for!!
I thought it would be a good idea to look back at my post from this time last year where I listed my resolutions for 2016 and see how many I actually achieved…

I had seven resolutions for 2016 which were:

  1. Stop biting my nails – I actually managed to achieve this!! Finally, after 19 years, I have stopped biting my nails!! They’re very weak at the moment, so they’re taking their time to grow, but I am so happy to have finally stopped biting them.
  2. Try harder with my blog – Well, at the beginning of the year I tried very hard with my blog, but as you can see, over the past few months, I really have let it slide.
  3. Be fit & healthy – I have been fit and healthy over the majority of the year, although, slipping up a little bit. Like, right now, I’ve been a right unhealthy slob over Christmas!!
  4. Be more organised – I feel like I have achieved this to an extent. Of course, there is always room for improvement!
  5. Be more chilled – I’ve definitely achieved this. At the beginning of this year I was a very highly strung person, which I admit, I still am, but I have definitely chilled a lot more out. I take things as they come and try not to stress so much about the little things anymore.
  6. Be more confident – I think I have achieved this to a degree. I could definitely work on being more confident. But I feel like I’ve got slightly better.
  7. Be happy – yep, I’ve achieved this! I am such a happier person than I was throughout 2015.

Onto a few things that have made me happy this year… (this is in no particular order!!)

  1. This guy. *bleeeuurrghhh cringey* hey ho! I don’t mention him much on here, but, this is George and he has been part of my life for the past 5 years, my boyfriend and best friend. Admittedly, I definitely nag him too much (I’m sorry) but he’s the best and I wouldn’t change him for the world!

2. Seeing Justin Bieber with my niece thanks to George! He bought the tickets for Christmas 2015 and it was sooo good!! There’s a post about it here.

3. Finally getting myself a professionally designed blog header! Thank you to Jemma from Dork Face.
I love that it has all the little things on it that I love, Dalmatians, Elephants, Handbags, Paris, Macaroons, Peter Pan and Glitter!!

4. Visiting The Crazy Bear Hotel with my favourite guy. George booked for us both to go there for my birthday this year. It was so lovely. There’s a huuuuge post about it here. I would so love to go again!! *hint hint*

5. One of my older sisters finally got married and I was lucky enough to be her bridesmaid! It went by in such a whirlwind but it was amazing.

6. Maga! Maga! Maga-f**king-luf!! This summer I finally went on my first girls holiday with four of my friends. It was sooo good and we even made friends!! Ha-ha! I sooo wish I could go back again.

7. Finally, my niece and I visited the beautiful city of Amsterdam. It was one of the best weekends of my entire life!! In fact, I wrote three posts about it which you can read here, here and here.

That’s it for my round up of 2016 and I hope you enjoyed!!
2016 has been a fantastic year for me personally! Amongst the things mentioned above, I also got a new car, an Audi A3!! Which has been a dream of mine for so long!! AND I started a part time uni course!!

Stay tuned as I’ll be writing a looking forward to 2017 post in the next couple of days.

Have a Happy New Year and Best Wishes for 2017!!

Let’s Tie The Knot!

How was your Christmas?! I hope it was fantaaaaabulous!!

Technically, I can’t comment on my Christmas yet, as I’m writing this two days before Christmas, cheeeeeky aye.

Ha! Did I trick you with the title of the post?! I’m not reeeaaally getting married. I was just referencing my top muhahaha, sorry kidsss!!

Would you look at that, another #OOTD post coming at yaaaa, that’s two in the past week oioi!!

This was actually shot probably a month or so ago, it’s taken me that long to post it, woooooppppss!!

I’ve become so bad at blogging, which makes me so sad, I really do need to get back into it.

As I mentioned in my #OOTD post last week, I just loooove me a pair of ripped jeans and these are no exception.

They are a little tooooo ripped for the colder weather, as jeans aren’t exactly the warmest of clothes and putting that amount of rips in them, makes them veerrry chilly!!

Nevertheless, I’ll still probably brave the cold and wear them anyway, plus!! wearing my OTK boots makes them a little warmer anyway!

Outfit Details:-

Coat – Zara
Top – Zara
Jeans – Topshop
Boots – Stuart Weitzman/Russell & Bromley
Handbag – Mulberry

Can’t You Afford A New Pair Of Jeans Alice?

My Dad thinks he is sooo funny every time he cracks ^^THAT^^ joke!!

I threw on this outfit the other day for a casual day with my niece and little sister and loooved it.

I just felt so comfortable but still chic so I dragged my little photography, a.k.a. my little brother outside to take some snaaappps for me.

You can see a sneaky little part of my NEWWW car oioi!!

I am soo in love with my little baby, she’s a brand new Audi A3, who I have named ‘Effie’.

I’ve had her for almost a month now and I am still so happy with her.

It’s such a change from my first car, a Clio!!

Unfortunately, it’s a little bit tooo chilly now to wear ripped jeans which makes me sad!!

Ripped jeans are seriously my favourite, they’re just so effortless and are an easy way to make a plain jain outfit, that bit more interesting.

Can you believe it’s nearly Christmas?! Madness heh?!

I know it sounds so cliche but I honestly can’t believe just how quick this year has gone by. It feels like Christmas 2015 was only a few weeks ago!!

I don’t feel at all Christmas which is sooo annoying for me because Christmas is my favvvve time of the year. I’m currently sat with my fairy lights on watching one of my all time favourite films, The Holiday, in the hope of feeling that bit more Christmassy!!

Outfit Details:

Jacket – Missguided
Top – Zara
Jeans – Topshop
Shoes – Converse
Bag – Mulberry

So, are you ready for Christmas?!
I’ve already got everything wrapped!!

Who is InTheEyeOfThis?

Fancy learning a little more about me?!
For ages I’ve been wanting to do a little post telling you more about me so here it is!! In the artful way of a list…

Well THIS ^^ is me.

  • My full name is Alice Rebecca Wright
  • I was born April 10th 1997 in the wonderful county of Essex, Harlow to be exact, but let’s not go into that!!
  • I am one of 9, yes NINE! 6 sisters and 2 brothers, with my oldest sibling being 40 (she’ll kill me for saying that) and my youngest being only 13.
  • Due to the fact I have so many older sisters, I have 4 nephews and 7 nieces, ranging from 19 years old to less than a year!
  • I have grown up with my niece Kelsie as there is only 11 days between us. I really do see her as more of a sister than a niece though. I can honestly say that I don’t know what I would do without her in my life.
  • I have always lived in Essex, so am an Essex girl, born and bred!! I lived in Harlow until my 1st birthday then moved to a cute little village near Stansted (not going to be exact because you know, weirdos and all that)
  • I was born with a chronic illness, a liver disease called Alpha 1 Antitrypsin Deficiency, which I’m not going to go into, but the long and short is that it effects my liver and lungs, meaning I can’t drink or smoke.
  • I currently work full time for my dads structural steel company as his PA, I have worked there for just over a year, since July 2015
  • Alongside studying Business Management and Finance at university part time – I only started this September (2016) and have 5 years to go
  • I took up blogging because I always loved writing and creating so it seemed like the right thing to do.
  • I also used to have a Youtube channel when I was 15/16 where I made fashiony/lifey videos for a while. However I then got embarrassed when people found it that I didn’t want to, so I deleted all traces of it! Slyly wish I didn’t now so I could have watched the videos again!!
  • I’m an avid nail bitter which I’m trying my hardest to stop!! In fact my nails are the longest I’ve ever seen them at the moment.
  • I’m also an avid chewing gum eater. I will never not have a piece of gum in my mouth unless I’m sleeping or I’m eating something else!!
  • I have had the same best friend for seven years now, Jenni, who I met on my induction day for secondary school, the rest is history! She’s been with me through so many ups and downs and I can honestly say we will be friends forever and my children will be calling her Auntie!!
  • My boyfriend George and I have been together since 2011. It was two days before my 14th birthday when we got together and we’ve been together ever since.
  • I have a weird obsession with mugs and wish I could buy every mug I’ve seen and loved but we just don’t have the space, waahhh
  • There are three things in life I’m obsessed with: Disney (OBVVVSSS), Dalmatians and Elephants!!!

That’s all the facts I can think of right now!

I hope you enjoyed learning a bit more about me! What are some facts about you?!
