Top 17 in 2017

Last year I did a 'Top 16 in 2016' blog post and I think it's such an amazing blog post to look back on in a couple of years so thought I would continue with this post and do my Top 17 in 2017. Although yes, this post should have been posted closer to the New Year, I'm still adamant to get it up as it's an amazing way to keep and save memories.

1. I celebrated my 23rd birthday, in serious style with an American themed party with loads of my friends and also a fabulous birthday desk takeover at work by my colleagues

2. Went to Prague for a girls weekend away which has to be one of my favourite European cities I've visited 

3. Completed the Harry Potter School of Witchcraft and Wizardry Escape Room WITH a distinction in our OWLS as we managed to escape in under 60 minutes

4. Went to Wales to stay with my flatmates family and my favourite part, visiting Barry Island and seeing all the sites of Gavin & Stacey

5. Went to see John Mayer at the O2 where he sang Gravity and it was the single most amazing thing ever 

6. Spent a week in Cyprus where I got seriously badly sunburned and came back 90% Halloumi

7. Took part in the London Pride Parade with my work on a day that was absolutely scorching but also so much more fun

8. Took my flatmate to Brighton for the first time where we classically had fish & chips by the sea and took a bajillion photos in the photobooths

9. Went to two immersive theatres including Alice in Underground in the Waterloo Vaults and The Great Gatsby in Borough - my new favourite kind of theatre! 

10. Took part in the 'Big London Bake' aka the Great British Bake Off  with work where you literally take part in Bake Off challenges and my team actually won even though we managed to burn the top of our cake 

11. Went to Street Parade for the first time since 2012 in Zurich with my flatmate where we definitely drank and partied far too much 

12. Went to see Emeli Sandé at the O2 after my flatmate won tickets

13. Had a mini vacation to Spain with my parents in October to catch some last minute sun 

14. Had the most intense Harry Potter weekend in existence not only visiting the tour for the second time but also seeing The Cursed Child 

15. Went to Amsterdam with my flatmate 

16. Saw Mariah Carey at the O2 for her All I Want For Christmas Tour which was the most damn festive thing I've ever seen. 

17. and a new job! Something that I've been keeping very low key is that I've decided to leave my current company and work as a Publicist at a production company which I'll be starting in on Monday (queue the first day nerves!)

Let me know one of your favourite things that happened in 2017 in the comments below!
