The Best of 2015

This year has been so special to me. There have been lots of personal milestones, career highlights, blog achievements, places explored and so many other moments in between. It’s been such an amazing whirlwind and for a change I’m not as ready as I usually am to welcome the new year.

I feel like 2015 was the year I really found my feet.

It was our first full year living in the country and so we feel more settled than ever. I moved into an exciting new position at work, which challenges me every day and has provided such an amazing opportunity for growth in my career. We’ve seen so much of both our families thanks to our wedding and I honestly feel so blessed to be able to share our lives with so many wonderful people.

I’ve also had a blast with this blog this year thanks to all of you who take time out from your busy lives to visit, read, share your comments here on LUW and on social media, and email. It’s been a great year friends, and I am so, so grateful for all of you!

The end of the year is fast approaching but before we set our sights on 2016, I thought it would be fun to look back on some of my favourite posts and moments from 2015.

1// This daisy playsuit, because it just screams SUMMERTIME to me!
2// Doing one of my favourite things with my favourite person (skiing the Japanese Alps in February!)
3// Baking with my Mum in April and making the most amazing choc cherry coconut slice (my Nan’s recipe!).
4// Discovering a hidden gem right in our own backyard with an afternoon exploring Ringsfield House.
5// This honest post talking about our wedding planning process.
6// My beauty favourites roundup from the previous year (FYI, I still love every one of these products!).
7// My most useful DIY project yet! I use this tray in multiple ways around our house, and still cannot get over how easy it was to make!
8// Standing in awe of the Bamboo Forest in Kyoto, Japan.

9// This post wearing my much-loved kimono last summer.
10// And this post wearing the same kimono in the autumn.

SO basically, I’ve loved this year and I’m sad to see 2015 go!

How about you? I’d love to hear all about your 2015. And I’m sending all my best wishes to you and yours for all that’s to come in 2016! XO
