What Will We Remember About 2016?

Hello sweet peas!

Prepare yourselves for some very much New Years based posts! πŸ˜€

I love New Years as its when you see all your hard work over the year come together, and you reflect back on it!

So what will I remember about 2016?

  • “Closer” – omg how guys? This is going to be one of those songs that we all grit out teeth through in future years and say “what did I actually like about it?’ but secretly you’ll feel nostalgic for 2016 πŸ˜‰ This song took the pop world by storm and suddenly it went from “alright song” to one of the most played songs! (and yes I am actually listening to it right now as I write haha!)
  • Shawn Mendes – how could we forget him? He became such a huge pop sensation this year, and all those who hadn’t know of him last year suddenly knew his life story! ❀
  • That Election – do I even have to clarify what country it was? That was one of the most watched – if not the most watched – elections in the US ever! Even people over here were watching the election as it happened. Literally, we all crowded around the computer watching America getting redder and redder. Legit no one was watching Shortland street that night πŸ˜‰ (kiwi joke)
  • Snape died! – I genuinely couldn’t believe it when I found Allan Rickman was dead! That was a horrible moment for Potter fans every where! In fact we lost so many amazing people this year, its unbelievable!
  • We had two more earth quakes here which was pretty scary! No one expected that (and don’t say you did, it deflects from my point πŸ˜‰ ) Plus having an earthquake the morning of my exam was pretty strange! Still sat it though πŸ˜‰ ❀
  • And most importantly for me I am going to remember the year I started my blog, and grew so much as who I am going to be! I love that FIOS quote that Augustus Waters says “I’m on a rollercoaster that’s only going up my friend” (sorry if I got it wrong!) because I think that’s howΒ I feel. Life is like that, you have the dips, and the highs, and you just have to know that life goes on. And this year has been such an amazing year for me πŸ™‚

So thanks guys! πŸ™‚ You all made it to my list ❀

How about you? What will you remember about this year? What’s on your list? If you do a post of this let me know in the comments and I will go and check it out πŸ™‚ ❀

Wishing you all the best day!!

Lui xx

  1. Totally relate to your list! Haha, we’ll probably be tired of hearing Closer a few years from now, but it’s on my playlist for now πŸ˜‰. And yeah, Shawn Mendes is pretty awesome; it’s great to see him go so far and rise to fame! Song artist wise I loved watching Alessia Cara rise from YouTube, to stardom; not many know of her globally, but she’s been a hit in Canada (lol, I feel so proud when I watch my fav singers rise to fame πŸ˜‚). Great post!! ❀

  2. Oh this is a really good idea for a post! I might do it early next year, thanks for the idea!
    And, totally agree with your points. I honestly didn’t know why I loved Closer so much even as I was singing it with my friends! It was one song that brought all of us together though, everyone was digging it.

  3. I’m not gonna go as far as saying I loved this year because I’ve had a lot of personal problems but I am very thankful that this year has happened because I wouldn’t be here now, blogging as I’ve built up loads of self confidence xx

  4. This post was amazing Lui!!! I have to write this post !!! It’s such a great idea! And it’s so sad that Snape (Allan Rickman ) died. I have been binge watching Harry Potter for the last week and its weird seeing him alive there but dead now.

  6. OMG I totally forgot about Professor Snape dying. SO tragic!!! But yes, so unforgettable- election including, I dont think ANYONE will forget that ridiculousness. I will for sure still be jamming to Closer in 2017 though πŸ˜‰
