Over the year, the blogging world has introduced me to some incredible people and even more incredible opportunities. It’s only fair I do a round-up and say thank you right? I am so grateful for every opportunity this tiny little space on the internet has given me and I only started it as a place to document my 20s and its turned into something more. I always do stand by the fact I am always on the sidelines in this bloggersphere, still continuing for my love of writing more than anything hence my post called ‘I Don’t Care‘. If I can experience a little more life whilst I do it, then why not.
I’d always wanted to go to London Fashion Week and although I may not be much of a fashion blogger, I love fashion. UK designers are talented, daring and I was so glad I could experience homegrown talent in my own city. You can check out Plus Minus Magazine here, where I’m Features Editor. Feel free to send me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org for all things London!
I wasn’t sure if I was going to go to Traverse or not, but I managed to get a last minute ticket and its honestly one of the best decisions I’ve made. Travel blogging and travel bloggers are SO different from the realm of fashion and beauty. It’s interesting to hear everyone’s different reasons why they travel and how they travel which for me has more depth than a lipstick (which I still love too).
You can check out the lessons I learnt here.
I’d never been to Cornwall or that far South until I was asked to explore life outta London for the weekend. Cornwall is beautiful, breezy and there is SO much more to it than clotted cream and pasties. You can experience my #SeaAndTheCity travels here and here.
And if you’re after a good quality cabin bag, check out my review of the Cabin Zero backpack here.
Not going to say much more on this one but this is possibly my highlight of 2017.
I can’t cook but I love to eat and I love a challenge. This year I went to a cooking class with Grohe, eaten my fair share of Asian food and attempted to go meat-free. If this is the reason I haven’t lost any weight this year, I only have myself to blame. Not only that, I’ve been able eat my way through London with brunches at Four to Eight and solo dining at Pizza Union.
One of the biggest things I’ve done with this blog… sharing my story of how I got #OnTheLadder.

What have been your highlights from 2017?
Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up. I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
