It’s the 11th January and I’m finally getting round to writing this up. I’ve been jotting down ideas of what I want to accomplish and do in 2018 but I thought it’d be good to have it all written down on my little space on the internet.
I have mixed feelings about New Years Resolutions. I have to admit I feel immense pressure to be doing something ‘amazing’ when midnight hits and counting down to a new year leaves me with a funny feeling! Anyone else? I don’t think I’m alone. I think a lot of people wait in anticipation and then when midnight strikes your like.. huh.. okay.. nothing happened.. but we’ve ticked over into another year.
I have this lasting memory of my child self thinking ‘I wonder what the world will be like and what my life will be like by 2020’ and guess what kid, it’s only 2 years until I find out!
I like being organised, I like keeping track of my progress and I do this all year round so when a new year starts it gives my brain chance to think about what I have or haven’t achieved in the year previous. Therefore it gives me a lot to think about (and sometimes dwell too much on) and allows you to step back and have a look at what’s been happening.
Anyway, I thought I’d just list a few key goals and plans I have set out for 2018
Create more fashion content – Lookbooks & Hauls
Continue to make travel vlogs

Dress more colourfully
Be brave with my outfit choices – pattern clash, wear colour, mix textures

Visit Australia for the first time – June 2018
Go on more ‘Staycations’ – so far we have trips to Manchester, Birmingham & London booked!

Eat healthier – be more aware of what I’m putting in my body
Exercise on a regular basis – do weights too, I want to feel stronger (especially my upper body)
