What better way to celebrate the end of 2010 than with afternoon tea? 

One glass of champagne went completely to my head and those cakes didn't last long. Oh Slimming World, I'm sorry. I promise this is just a temporary blip. I'll be back on form tomorrow.

So, that's that then. Another year has been and gone. How was it for you?

2010 has been the best year of my whole life. I'm sad to see it go but I'm incredibly excited for 2011 and all it will bring. This year I bought a house, lost over five stone in weight, went to Glastonbury Festival (again) and New York (again), visited Barcelona for the first time, got promoted and, most importantly, finally found happiness within myself. I've never been happier than I am right now and I feel truly blessed to have had such a wonderful year, filled with so many incredible people.

However you're spending tonight, I hope you have a fabulous time. Thankyou so much to everyone who's followed my little old blog this year. The comments, the emails and the lovely words of encouragement are appreciated so much and I hope you all have a great New Year's Eve.

Here's to 2011! xxx

Oh, Helen, your blog gives me a serious case of the smiles. Have a fabulous New Year's. Can't wait to read all about your successes, finds, jewelry obsession, & humor in 2011. xoxo

Ahh I love afternoon tea! I think Scott loves it more though, he would gladly eat it everyday if I let him. Is that in the Hilton?! It looks very swanky, may have to persuade Scott to take me hehe.

Can't believe you were just down the stairs and I didn't know!

What a lovely post. Most people don't have many good things to say about 2010 so it's nice to hear that it's been good for someone! And that you are ready to embrace a new one!

Hope it's another goodie!
