Surely I can’t be the only one thinking that 2014 has gone by in such a flash?. For me it’s been a year of contrasts. As a blogger I’ve had another wonderful year. I was chosen as an exclusive blogger for Grand Central in Birmingham plus the blog was highly commended in the Birmingham Press Club Media Awards 2014. I have had the pleasure of meeting more bloggers in person and not just chatting online. It is their encouragement and support, plus those of my lovely readers who inspire me to continue writing. In contrast behind the scenes I have been trying to come to terms with loosing someone very precious to me. Whilst I haven’t written specifically about this, it has inspired quite a few of my blogs posts. Here are my favourite highlights from 2014.
Finding new places to eat:
The Plough, Harborne; Rose and Crown, Warwick; Bluebell Henley, Henley in Arden; Milk Shake Bar and Soda Shop, Birmingham; Kings Arms, Knowle; Noel Arms, Chipping Campden; Sunday brunch at Malmaison, Birmingham

I’ve already set my SMART goals for 2015 (which I’ll be sharing with you on Monday) and I’m excited for the year ahead. Having met the goals I set myself this last year, I’m looking forward to working on next years goal. I love writing Glamour in the County and I’ll be introducing new content that will help inspire you to live your most glamorous life. I hope you’re ready to be part of the journey.
Wishing you all a glamorous 2015!
