The end of the road

Sunday, 3 January 2016

Wow! It's 2016! I can't believe I'm writing that! But before I take a good ol' look back on the year as a whole here is my final monthly Instagram wrap up off all that happened in the final month of 2015! 
December 2015 was a busy month, very busy! The first week was spent crazily running around Nottingham, finishing as much stuff up at uni as possible and saying goodbye and merry Christmas to my fabulous uni famalam before I headed home. The second & third week of December were spent in WALT DISNEY WORLD! I had the best two weeks ever in one of my favourite places on the planet! We then flew home for the last week of the year and both Christmas & New Years! Overall it was a fantastically fabulous month, despite it's lows. 
So here's my December 2015 via the lens of my Instagram feed. My username is @holljc if you want to follow me and checkout what I'm getting up to on daily basis!  

Gahhh! So adorable! So perfect /  Today's crazy and fabulous shoot for our zine, Cockeyed /  Had a fabulously fun evening ice skating, eating food & feeling Christmassy with the uni fam! Didn't get any pictures (for once) so here's a pretty picture of fairy lights and bunting instead! /  Well this is surreal, adios England /  /  Just keep swimming, just keep swimming     
/  Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree /  When you feel like a Christmas fairy that's missing their wings /  /  When you wish upon a star /  Making new friends is always fun 
/ /  It's the most wonderful time of the year /  Trip to the mothership complete /  Yesterdays vibes /  My new pal is a bit of a crazy one
A lil' bit of henna makes a girl very very happy! /  Beautiful prints are my favourite /  /  Merry Christmas, everyoneeee /  Channeling my inner Minnie Mouse /  / 

"I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing. That it was all started by a mouse" /  /  Hawaiian santa and his pals are out in full force! Christmas has officially arrived at the Cooke household /  Why hello Christmas eve! /  Merry Christmas one and all! I pray that you have an absolutely wonderful day whatever you're doing and whatever you believe! A day filled with love and family and goodness! /  Colour faux fur, a novelty bag and red lipstick mean one thing and one thing only: ding ding round two - boxing day!  
So the Archbishop of Banterburry is getting old! Happy 20th Birthday Beth! /  Oooopssy! That Asos sale was just too good to miss! / So another year is pretty much over, and a long year it has been! 2015 was a year full of challenges, struggles, hurt, worry, stress, a year I didn't expect but that came at me full force none of the less. But on the eve of 2016 I am choosing positivity and to focus on the blessings of the last 12 months. To remember the laughs and smiles, the friends who turned into family, the growth and opportunities and the one person who is still here despite the trials of 2015. So bring on 2016 and all that you have in store! I hope it contains a little less pain and hurt and is just as filled with blessings and joy and opportunities and love as the last year. 

It's traa to December 2015 and hello to January 2016, I hope and pray it's filled with goodness for us all! 

God bless
