New Year's wishes and plans - a hello from Elsa and good old me

It's been a while since I updated. Now that we are in the New Year, it's a great time to get back to blogging. Hopefully you will see updates from me on a more regular schedule soon enough.

Before Christmas I got around doing a few festive Elsa (Frozen) appearances for children's birthday parties and other events. I also had my husband take these photos of me as Elsa next to my Christmas tree!

Elsa is an important character for me as I perform as her often so I'm hoping to upgrade this costume in 2016 by actually making my own from scratch (not least for the reason that this one shrank in the wash and lost colour - very disappointing considering it was a rather expensive costume).

Merry Christmas from Frozen Elsa!

Elsa and reindeer! A quick sneaky photo from the "backstage" of an amazing venue I performed at.

Although I love making festive appearances as Elsa and other characters, I spent the holidays overseas. I was in Florida and I thoroughly enjoyed it. These photos are from the Florida keys.

Me out of costume but with my reindeer antlers.. :) This is from the 7-mile bridge in Florida Keys

Looking back I'm satisfied I've made the most of 2015. Hopefully I can make the most of this year too. I'm looking forward to doing these things...

  • Embracing my passion as a children's entertainer - I live for princess performing and I hope I can become an even better entertainer.
  • Developing my skills as a face painter - I developed massively in 2015, I hope this carries on.
  • Playing the ukulele - I'm taking regular lessons now. Who knows, maybe sometime soon I will start my Youtube channel... if I get enough confidence!
  • Travelling and visiting home - I do this every year. I'm particularly looking forward to my friend's wedding in late summer in Finland.

Please tell me about your plans for the New Year! :)
