Life | Look Back & New Years Resolutions!


I know it's a very typical thing to do at the end of the year and deep down we know that we probably won't be keeping to a majority of them anyway BUT every year I always tell myself that this will be the year that I actually do it!

First off I like to do a quick "look back" on last years resolutions and see if I managed to keep any!

1. Go on an adventure. Did not keep this resolution and I'm actually really gutted about that! Definitely need to sort this out for 2017!
2. Save some money. Enough to buy a house?  Yup that's one ticked off!
3. Gym. Let's just move on!
4. Be more organised. Definitely! I have diaries and notepads every where with little reminders and notes for myself. I even brought an organiser file for all my documents! 
5. Take time out for myself. This was very important to me and I'm happy to say it's one that I made a big effort to achieve.

Overall, quite successful so onto the new year!

I think we can all agree that 2016 has been an utterly shite year and for once I'm really looking forward to 2017 and the chance to start over. Here is my list of all the things I'd like to achieve!

1. Concentrate on my blog more


Since buying my house and subsequently spending all my time and money on decorating etc, that hasn't really left much time for my blog. After the first few moves have passed and I've got a routine going again I definitely want to make sure that I have "blog time"

2. Lose weight

I do cringe writing this down as a resolution because EVERYONE says they'll lose weight in the new year but I really have "let go" lately and I need a kick up the bum to get back on track. 2017 will be the year!! And yes, I know the picture is just the worst when trying to diet!

3. Learn a new skill


Continuing on from above, this year I want to help better myself and another way I can do this is to learn a new skill! There's so much that I want to do with my life and the only thing holding me back right now, is me. Not anymore! Watch this space.

4. Cook more

It dawned on me a couple of days ago that since I paid £5,000 for a new kitchen, I've hardly cooked in it! Mostly it was down to the fact that it was all "pretty and new" and I didn't want to ruin it but enough's enough! I need to start cooking!

5. Not get in debt!

A bit of a joke resolution but something I do seriously need to get on top of. I will be entering 2017 as a home owner and with that comes a lot of responsibility so one of my resolutions this year will be to become OCD about my in and outgoings! No more impulse spending sprees in Primark!

  1. dont diet, diets never work because you lose weight in the short run but in the long run it can all come back. Just eat healthier and exercise more ;)
    good luck with all of these and congrats again on the house!
