New Year, New Me, New Blog

2 January 2014
For months now I've been arguing with myself whether to finally start a blog and whether I have the motivation to stick to it. With the new year it seemed the perfect opportunity to give it a go.  

Originally I thought hmm let's make a beauty blog because they're the type of blogs that I'm drawn to and shamelessly spend hours reading through but every once in a while a little change up can be good. Therefore I decided that my blog isn't going to be primarily based on beauty but also events and lifestyle posts on my day to day life and the odd occasional exciting thing that happens.

This year I've decided to have a more positive outlook on everything and by doing so made some New Years resolutions. Everyone usually makes those such as 'I want to lose weight', 'give up smoking' or 'eat healthier' to name a few but by the second week of January all that motivation is out the window. As a result I've thought of a few that are realistic for me and that I shall (fingers crossed) be able to keep.

1. Find a proper skincare routine and stick to it - this is mainly due to a lack of effort on my behalf but all wrong doings will be altered in the new year. A little extra time should do the trick.

2. Another beauty related resolution of mine is to experiment with makeup looks and try new products - my usual go to makeup is natural, natural and natural with the odd bold lip and some eyeliner for a night out. Not very adventurous at all so this'll definitely be a big change for me.

3. The usual cliche, an important resolution which I'm determined to keep is exercising. I have a few holidays and trips planned already this year - one being as early as April and I want to look and feel my best. I've already set up an exercising routine which will suit me and only takes up an hour of my day. As well as this I want to start Pilates so this will help me with the whole getting fitter malarkey.

4. My camera wasn't working for the most part of 2013 and because of this its been one of those years where there's a handful of photos when there should be tonnes. Therefore this year my camera will never be out of my hands and the aim is to document everything (well maybe not everything) but most things so in a few years I can look back on them and reminisce.

5. Don't stress and be happier. This is a main one, the last few months of last year were difficult to say the least and I found myself getting wound up over little things sometimes I don't particularly want to do anymore. I've told myself to relax more and not panic so much about university work and deadlines. To do this I'm going to give myself a kick up the backside, learn to prioritize and organise myself properly and more importantly ensure no all nighters are done the night before a deadlines due. This'll definitely reduce the amount of premature wrinkles I was bound to get and will allow be more hours in bed.

6. Who knows, I might even attempt to get my Drivers License.

There's something satisfying about starting a new calendar.

Have you made any New Year resolutions? Or any that you don't think you'll stick to? 
Thanks for reading, Jenny xo
