Reflecting on 2016

Firstly, I just wanted to say that if you're reading this I want to wish you a Happy New Year 🎉🍾 and thank you so much for following both new and old subscribers my blog. I hope, like myself, you can see a slow improvement on my content and I vow to keep on growing and evolving over the next year also. 

This year has been such an up and down year for me personally with both highs and low I know this sounds like such a cliche thing to say but its true i've been through so much this year that has taught me a lot and allowed me to grow as a person. It hasn't been easy, but then again whats 'easy' these days ?!

I just wanted to briefly reflect on the year of 2016 and bring you guys in on it with me.This year is the first full year that I've been committed to my blog and instagram and growing as an influencer. It's been a lot of work and I know the work has only just begun as I'm nowhere near where I want to be, but I personally think I've been able to achieve quite a lot this year. Particularly with my Instagram I was able to hit over 2K and in turn able to do my first giveaway which was so much fun. I intend to do a lot more of these as I grow as a brand and my community grows also. 

I've met some amazing people and got to know a lot of new 'blogger' friends which areas lovely to talk to and get great advice from, especially as we're all wanting to achieve the same thing and are at different stages of our creative and blogging world shall we say. 

If you don't follow me on Instagram, then why the hell not ?! find me here or by searching 'natalieayse' 

I've been lucky to start working with a couple of new brands which has been so much fun and I look forward to working with so many more in the new year. 

I just wanted to say that whatever it is that you are wanting to do/achieve don't let anyone get in your way or stop you from believing you can do it. It's all about the work you put in and how much you're wanting to get back from it, never let anyone tell you that you can't intact remove this word from your vocabulary. It's all about what you want and can do, trust me. 

Blogging for me is a passion as I love fashion and trends and all aspects to even styling interests me, its exciting, and I think that helps majorly when you are wanting to create a name for yourself. You have to love what you do and believe in what you write about. I'm always honest in my reviews and write about what I believe in and never what anyone wants me to write about, stay true to you.

Anyway, this is turning into a rambling essay and I don't want to bore you guys, I just wanted to say a huge huge  thank you to everyone who has supported and believed in me. I've had to cut a few negative and un-supportive people out of my life this year, or at least distant myself from them and I just wanted to say its okay to do that, its good for the soul believe me.
If you want to get somewhere its best to have supportive people around you who will pick you up on off days and help you anyway they can to move you forward. 

I was always told you can count your true friends on one hand when you get older, and boy is that true.


anything is possible when you put your mind to it. 

Signing out from 2016 and i'll see you on the other side. 

All the best you gorgeous bunch
