Welcome to 2017!

Hi there lovelies,

So here it is then... 2017! 

I've already written down so many times an appointment or something in my diary as Jan 2016 only to have to correct it shortly after... seriously how time moves so fast eh? In only a few day's time, Lewis is 2! I can't believe it.

I'm really thankful for 2016. It was a pretty good year for us. Yes, it saw us move house again. However, now I finally feel settled and I'm sure if you asked Chris he would say the same. When we lived in Dubai it was superb. However, we never really made it home. Our house now though feels like home. With pictures on the walls and scatter cushions here and there. Yeah, I love it! 

2016 also saw me go back to part-time work after having Little Un. The job I'm doing isn't my dream job. You know my heart is in music. However, I'm so grateful for the opportunity and I'm really enjoying working alongside a lovely group of people part time and feel really blessed that I have a management team above me that get the whole parenting and work balance thing. Yeah, I'm so thankful.

2016 wasn't the best year for blogging so far as regards the number of posts that I posted. However, I've really enjoyed writing and sharing the post's that I've done this last year. I've been blogging now for 4 and a half years and I finally feel that I've found my blogging style and that this blog really is mine. This might sound crazy but let's just say I do spend a lot of time writing on here and I feel that I give each blog post a lot of love and attention and that I write from the heart.

Regards my blog... I know that 2016 has seen me post here and there. This year, however, I want to try and give you my lovely readers and sparkly friends a good idea to when you can read fresh new content on the sparkly blog. You can check in every Wednesday and find sparkly new blog posts guaranteed from now on. However, I am hoping to start to post on Mondays and Fridays sometimes too. Follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook and then you won't miss a post.

I'm really excited about 2017. This year I'm going to step out there and follow my dreams.

This year I'm going to Blog more, do more YouTube again and.... wait for it... I'm going to get back in to my music and singing. 

I've had lots of people messaging me regards this, asking when I'm releasing a new track or gigging again. Let's just say I've never stopped writing or working on my music behind the scenes it's just that I don't have the time to focus on projects like I used to now that I'm Mummy to a lively little boy! 
But like I say... Watching this space as things are about to get a heck of a lot more SPARKLY!
