Wow, I can’t really believe that 2017 is already over. I can’t believe it. I entered 2017 in the hospital with my husband who was quite poorly and used up the last money in my bank account for the month travelling back and forth to the hospital to see him every day for the entire first week of January. I told myself never again and I remember telling myself that this year I was going to really try and turn my career in another direction, so I didn’t have to use up the last money in my account ever again. I was working in retail this time last year, feeling uninspired and desperate to get out, living from paycheck to paycheck. So I started posting videos regularly, and within 3 months I had gone from 10,000 to over 100,000 YouTube subscribers and quit my job. I was taken up by my amazing manager and the rest of the year has just been so incredible. I don’t even know how to describe it. I’ve made my hobby my job, I’ve applied for a visa to live in another country and I’ve spent another year with the love of my life. And I’m so grateful I don’t even think I could ever find the words to thank everyone who has supported me this year, every like, comment, subscribe... thank you, from the bottom of my heart. ❤️ I have spent this past week spending time with my family, and I’m now so inspired, so motivated and so ready for 2018. Happy New Year everyone! If I can do it, so can you ❤️

    @bellejorden yes! I had grade 3 breast cancer. 6 cycles of chemo and 23 radiotherapy sessions and 4 surgeries. I got new sternum tattoo to cover up radiotherapy dot tattoo which I hated and learnt to rock wigs and no one guesses I was so poorly! Dreading going back to work after over a year off and hoping I could do so something crazy like you and just go for it!xx

    Lady you have come so far! I started watching your videos right from the start, you have really found your beat there 😍 it's amazing to see the difference in a year! I'm vexed last year started so terribly for you, but so glad that Anth (Ant? I'm never sure, sorry 🙈) is feeling better. You are the cutest couple and you both deserve all the happiness in the world. Happy New year to you both. I can't wait to see what 2018 has in store for you guys! 😘
