Best of Frills 'n' Spills 2010

Whoosh.

What was that you say? Oh, just a whole 365 days passing me by in a flash.


That's it. 2010 over. And what a fabulous year it's been. That's not even a let's-pretend-we-had-a-good-time-to-round-off-the-year lie either.


I ate lots of lovely food...

and cooked my fair share too.





I've been on planes...




Trains...



and even a bicycle!



I've been an angel...





and a devil...





and I've even fallen in love with the postman.




More than once.



But the best thing this year? The moment that made it all? Catching this beauty from my favourite King...
 
KOL gig


I thought it would be a nice idea to do a round-up of our highlights from 2010 but I didn't anticipate just how difficult it would be to choose them! We have got to do some brilliant things and meet some amazing people but here is my choice of the best bits from this year... 


In January, I discussed an issue that is very close to my heart; depression. Luckily I have amazing friends and family to help me through mine but not everyone has that. I tried to share what works for me in the hope that it might help someone else. Not the cheeriest topic to start the year with, I know but it is important. 



Luckily I had some yummy pineapple upside down cake to cheer me up in February and the chance to go home to the gorgeous village where I live and see my amazing family and very talented friends... You should see me in my musical role VERY soon ;) 




Here are ten commandments every woman should live by, with the gorgeous Karen Elson as inspiration... 

Danni and I had to take cover from flying falafel in June... 


...but I managed to smarten up for my AMAZING internship in July! 




Going to Vintage at Goodwood with some gorgeous Aussie Angels to search for Yummy Hair was definitely a highlight...


Yes, I am that pale! 


... as was my pensioners trip to Weston- Super-Mare with Mark ;) 




In October I turned 21 and had to start behaving like an adult.... 




sort of... 



I needed your help with styling this gorgeous 80s blouse and boy did you come up trumps! (I will be using your amazing suggestions in the new year :D





And to get you in the Christmas spirit? Gorgeous male models AND George Lamb? Oh go on then! 

Don't say we don't spoil you! ;) 
What. a. year. I think you will agree that 2010 has been quite a roller-coaster ride for Danni and me and I am definitely looking forward to 2011! I will be spending New Year's Eve with my friends eating a lot of food and drinking wine and generally having a good time. I hope you have a brilliant time whatever you do and HAPPY NEW YEAR from both of us! Blogging has been such an amazing thing for us both, especially meeting all of you lovely people and being able to call you friends, (yes I'm getting soppy!) Long may it continue! :D

What have been the highlights of 2010 for you? What are you looking forward to next year? 

 

P.S. If you think we missed anything off our best bits or have any suggestions of what you would like to see in 2011, then let us know :D

Guys, you have had such a fantastic year! Here is to 2011.

I've just re-read the post about depression and I must say it is really great. My brother and I have both suffered with depression and it is an issue very close to my heart.

I would really encourage you to re-post it again as I think it really helps people at this time of year :) x

Thank you Eleanor, obviously this is just my take on it but I think it is so easy to forget that you aren't suffering alone but this time of year does make it more difficult! It is a subject that is close to my heart so I will be reposting it :)

Henar- Thank you :) London is amazing!

Right, had to force myself to stop drooling over the male model.
Sounds like you've both had incredible years.
I do love all the food you've both been making.

Maria, I'm so glad you got over your depression. Remember: you absolutely rock.

And I agree, blogging has been absolutely life chaging this year.

Danni and Maria said...

Thank you Sherin! <3 I did have George Lamb as my desktop for a few weeks- nothing beats that when I turn my computer on! ;) I am just so glad that I have met all of you guys through blogging and I just want to wish you all the BEST 2011 *Big hugs*

P.S. Danni's baking will cure ANYTHING!
