2017 in Review

2017 in Review Lauren Rose Style Blog // Winter Fashion Snow Scotland OOTD Boohoo Pink Fur Coat
On the first blog post I shared in 2017, I wrote 'I am sure I am not the only one who is thinking, thank god 2016 is over'. One year on, I definitely don't feel the same about 2017. 2017 has been a great year for me. A year that I am ending feeling truly happy and content in myself and my life. I had a lot of hard personal things that happened in 2016 that I luckily left behind and I had a fresh start this year, a new job, a new flat, I officially moved in with my boyfriend of 4 years and I have even made some new friends. So many amazing memories have been made in 2017 and it will be a year I will always remember.

One of my goals for 2017 was to focus on myself, the things that make me happy, to worry less and live life to the full. It is so lovely to look back on this year and know I have done exactly that. I am not the same person I was last year. I am so much more happy, less stressed and feel way more settled than I have felt in years.

On the blog side, 2017 has been the year where I have feel like I have found my little place on the internet. I am much more confident when posting and have definitely improved my photography and I am really happy with it all. At the start of the year, I changed my blog name to Lauren Rose Style and refocused my blog to purely focus on fashion and personal style content. This has allowed me to focus on what I love most and make my blog predominantly about fashion, as after all that is what I am most passionate about. I am so glad I made this change and really stuck with it. I have probably posted less on my blog over the past year, but when I have posted they are post's I am really happy with and proud of. Quality over quantity has definitely been this year's moto!

Another goal I had for 2017 was to create a gym routine and stick to it, as well as trying to take up running. If you had told me a year ago that I actually would take up running, I don't think I would have believed you. However, after my friend Erica and I spontaneously decided to sign up to run a 10k in November, I really had no choice but to take up running to build up my stamina so I could actually complete the run. In just 6 weeks, I managed to train and complete my first 10k in 1 hour and 6 minutes and what is even crazier is that I actually enjoyed it. It may not be a marathon, but it is definitely a start. I am hoping to do some more 10k's in 2018 and then maybe I can try to do a half marathon, we shall see.

I couldn't finish this post without talking about my outfit. I am utterly obsessed with this gorgeous faux fur coat from Boohoo. I can't even explain to you how soft and cosy it is, totally in love - definitely my current favourite coat. Also how cute is this jumper, which is actually now in the sale for just £13 - such an amazing deal.

As you can see from these photo's, we have had quite a bit of snow in Scotland over the past few days which of course made for the ideal photo opportunity. Although, standing out in the snow has probably not helped my cold that currently have - oops!

Have you had a good 2017? I would love to know what goals you have achieved this year!
