2014- The Best Year Of My Life!

What a massive year 2014 has been for me! I can say without a doubt that it’s been the best year of my life so far, full of so many highlights and achievements. With Facebook’s mediocre ‘Year in Review’ thing that is going around and feeling rather unimpressed with what it deemed was my year, I decided to do one on here instead!

So here are my highlights from 2014! There were so many other amazing times and experiences but I just picked out my top ones. I haven’t included all of the amazing photo shoots I’ve done as there have just been too many but they have been a super fun part of my year too!
