Life | A Look Back In 2015 & New Years Resolutions for 2016!


I'm not going to beat around the bush about this but the majority of my 2015 sucked. Simple. Not only did I have a lot of stress with my work but I also broke up with my boyfriend which resulted in me moving back home. It's been a nightmare!

I did however try and be positive about it all and turned the whole thing into quite an educating experience and I've also learned things about myself that I never knew before. So swings and roundabouts? I did also manage to get a new perfect job and that has made all the difference with my happiness!

But enough about 2015 and let's look to the future with 2016! Every year I make resolutions on this blog and I rarely keep them. Doesn't everyone though?! I did however only set myself the one resolution last year: to better myself. And I think that even though it took sometime and through a very shitt year, I'd like to think that I really have. So yay me!

I did however want to challenge myself a little bit more in 2016 with more resolutions and maybe even get to scratch off a few of my 30 before 30 targets! So here's to 2016!

1. Go on an adventure!


Not sure exactly what my "adventure" will be but I definitely want to do something exciting this year! Whether that's something relaxing like a spa weekend or even a trip to the beach or something a little bit crazy and "out there" like skydiving. I just want to look back and think "yeah, this year has been epic!".

2. Save some money!

Having a very low amount of money in my bank is quite common for me in 2015 so I'd love to be able to learn the art of saving! I did get a new job at the end of the year which pays a considerable amount more so I would like to think that this would make saving a lot easier!

3. Gym


Every year I always say I'm going to go to the gym more and although that works out for the first couple of months, it tends to fade off when I get bored. I did however recently lose one stone and well on my way to another to I'm hoping that that will motivate me enough to keep the gym up!

4. Be More Organised!

This year I definitely want to try and be more organised! I don't normally have a problem with time management or anything, but I find that if I have any appointments or anything with a deadline, I don't have anywhere to write it down and normally write it down on a scrap of paper. Not good!

5. Take Time Out For Myself

The main resolution and area I want to concentrate on in 2016, is getting a bit of ME time. I said I was going to do it back in 2014 and although I felt like I did, I failed to do the same in 2015. Blame it on my relationship or just that I didn't try enough but 2015 was a bit of a bad year for me and I want to work on me not getting to that dark and horrible stage in my life again. I want 2016 to be a clean fresh start for me!

What are you resolutions for 2016? 


  1. These are great resolutions! Especially taking time out for yourself :) I don't think i'll be making any for myself this year, I pretty much sucked with mine from last year haha
