Hello 2016.

Hi everyone, 

I can't believe how long it is since the last time I posted a blog. This post has been sitting in my notes for few weeks now and I have been thinking about editing it before I post. Last year I wrote Hello 2015 post and one of the thing I wrote about was that it is okay not to be happy all the time. 2014 was not the best year and I was hiding behind being happy all the time and I realised that it is not okay to be happy all the time. However, this year I learned that it is not okay to not be happy, not all the time but in general. So I made few big changes in 2015 and it has been a learning year. 

I went through a lot this summer and decided to take a little break and just focus on more personal stuff. I currently live in Iceland now and last summer me and my then partner split up and I decided the best way to move forward was to move back to Iceland to be with my friends and family. 
There is unbelievable support around me and I honestly can't believe how amazing my friends are. I knew I had good friends but this summer started off the worst summer but ended being a great summer. The theme of 2015 was kinda like a roller coaster, truth is that I was in general not happy, I have since realised that I was in a situation that did not make me happy. With all the big changes last year it has just made me relise that giving up is not an option. I have taken a long time to relise that the only person that truly has the power of making me happy is myself (okay, no more cringe worth writing). 

So like I said I am back in Iceland, currently live between four places (in a suitcase haha), work at the airport and I am back to full-time studying. I see my best friends all the time and I have gotten to know few new great friends since I have been back. I also have someone special in my life and I could not be happier with how things have turned out. Being able to see my friends on a daily basis and be involved in my best friends babies life is something I have missed. Of course London will always be one of my favourite places in the world, but my friends and family are not there and for a long time I kinda forgot about what mattered.

So last year I learned that my favourite drink of choice is red wine and I eat sushi as often as I can. I also found out that I kinda like working out and I needed to have an Iphone in my life (used to be an apple hater haha). 

I am super excited for 2016 and there are so many things that I want to do, here is a little list (mainly for myself so I can look back and see what I have done)

In the exercises department I want to be able to run 10 km and do yoga regular. 
I want to move out (again) from my dad, I only stay there when I am working but I want to move like all of my stuff to be in one place.
Travel with my friends, we are planning to go to a big festival in Belgium this Summer and I can't wait.
Experience new things with the people around me, again, travel and do things that I have never done before
Try new food, all of a sudden I am a sushi lover. What else have I been missing out?
Read more books, I used to read all the time in London but since I moved back then I kinda have been busy with other things. I have three books on my shelf that need to be read.
Focus on school, I am really focused this time. Uni is a demanding factor in my life but I can see graduation getting closer each month!
Enjoy the little things, having a coffee with a friend, going for a walks or even just laying in bed. Just enjoy the smallest things.

And now for the important part... Blog more, I honestly think I needed a total break from the internet last summer, I even closed my Facebook for a while and didn't post on Instagram for over two months (that IS a big deal) but now I am getting back into things and there are so many great things that I want to do. Living in Iceland is not like living in London where you have so much makeup available to you at a fair price, but my collection is at a good size so I have enough at the moment to write about. On my blogging to-do list is MAC lipstick collection, Nars blush collection and a post just about Rimmel products. 
If there is anything else that you are interested in just let me know :)

I will be posting my top 15 of 2015 in the next few days with swatches, I finally got enough daylight to take photos because living in Iceland during the winter months can be a struggle.

As always you can find me on any social media as margretscorner, I am going to be posting makeup stuff loads on Instagram and if you have tumblr let me know so I can follow back :)

Thanks for reading
