I spotted this lovely little idea on Charlotte's blog Girl Next Door Fashion it is so strange to try and make a list out of everything that happened. It's been a good year in all but I'm glad to see the back of it. I have great big lovely hopes for 2012 and I have lots of wonderful plans already. Himself bought me tickets to Wicked in the West End in April so we'll be having a nice trip to London together in April. We're even talking about jumping on the Eurostar and spending a day in Paris. I'm so excited. 

I'm hoping 2012 will be another fun year and I can celebrate the first year of my blog in March with some kind of epic giveaway. Hoping that you all will still enjoy reading Inanity and the Girl, and I hope your 2012 will be all kinds of epic too!

In 2012 I will:


Much love to you all, do you have any resolutions this year?

You had a great year :)
I had no idea you dealt with cancer too, you are so brave. I have two close relatives dealing with cancer at the minute, and it's very reassuring to know that there's hope. Thank you :)

As usual, your blog is just amazing. You had a stellar 2011! I hope 2012 is just as fabulous for you, you deserve so much happiness. Keep the great reviews, ideas and pics coming. You are just too fun, love your blog. I am a little envious at your home decor, you're far more creative and crafty than I am! Happy New Year!
