2015 Reflection and Achievements

I know everyone is probably bored of reading these posts but I love reading back on them to remember everything that happened over the past year, particularly if I'm feeling down or lacking motivation.   


I got offered my dream job in events. My first job in London and an exciting start to a whole new chapter of my life. 

I organised my first proper Blogger event #nyLDNmeet with two fellow bloggers and met some of the people who are my best friends today


I realised my dream job wasn't my dream job and decided to concentrate more on my blog and organising blogger events on the side


I laughed until I cried watching Book of Mormon for my birthday

Luke and I decided to put his house on the market and buy a house together


Luke and I put an offer in on our first house


I fell in love with Barcelona 

I missed my flight and had to sleep on the airport floor - first time that's happened I promise!


We went on our first (and definitely not the last) Blogger Holiday


I left what I thought was my dream job for my actual ultimate dream job


The house we put an offer in on fell through and I cried for so long (and wrote a very ranty post here)


We found our dream house

Invoiced our first client through Works Events


We booked our third blogger holiday - #BloggersInvadeIbiza


I visited Turkey for the first time as well as the IBTM trade show, representing Works Events internationally for the first time (you can read all about the gorgeous hotel we stayed in here)


We FINALLY exchanged and completed on our house and moved in on the 11th December ready to celebrate Christmas and New Year in our new home


It's crazy to think how much my life has changed this year. A year ago I'd moved into Luke's flat and was looking for my first London job. Fast forward 12 months and we own a house, and I own two businesses. I thought the original house we put an offer in on was the dream but in hindsight with the amount of work it needed doing to it, it would have been hell, and probably the end of our relationship through the stress! Proof that you can't always plan, because things change, but ultimately, everything happens for a reason. 

Thanks to everyone who has read Blonde Vision this year, I can't tell you how happy it makes me. Also thanks to everyone who has attended my events this year, particularly the people who travel from the other end of the country. Supporters are always noted, and compensated whenever possible. I hope to meet more of you lovely lot in 2016 - keep an eye on this post to check up on our future events. 

I feel like 2015 was for laying the foundations, and 2016 for building the Empire

Wishing everyone a 2016 full to the brim of love, luck and laughter.  

Love Lauren xx



  1. Nah not fed up of these posts yet, love them! Looks like your year - what with finding your dream dream job and buying a new house - was pretty good. Here's to an even better 2016, with no sleeping on airport floors.

  2. I really like how you've mapped out each month to show what you achieved. Will look forward to your 2016 post early next year.

    You're a real credit to the blogging community and I really enjoy our chats.

  3. Congratulations on your two businesses and moving into your "dream" home!

    When one door closes another door opens - maybe not when we are expecting.

    Expecting great things in 2016!

  4. Omg Lauren you are literally inspirational! How do you find the time to do anything?? Haha I SO want to go see Book of Mormon!!!!

    Good luck for 2016 babes I know you're going to absolutely smash it and can't wait to meet you and the #bloggersbelowzero event!


  5. You had such a fabulous year! So impressed! Looking forward to all 2016 brings you :)
