The Best of 2014

Happy New Year, bitches!

2015 already, hey? Last year was actually one big blur and wizzed past so quickly – I still can’t really believe it! I thought it’d be a good time to have a little recap of 2014, so I put together a little list of the best of it.

So for those who are regular readers, it’ll be nice for you to look back and remember some of the good, hungry times with me. And for those who are new readers or have a peak every now and again, it’s a good chance to see what you’ve missed out on!
