New Year Resolutions

How many people write New Years Resolutions, and stick to them….for like a week? Maybe a month? But not the whole year? Me too.
With 2016 just around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect start to this blog, in putting forward my New Years Resolutions and trying to hardest to actually stick to them. I’ve actually given myself a massive challenge by having quite a few, however some pretty basic, resolutions. I know that I probably won’t stick to all of them, but I am determined to get through at least two…
  • The first resolution has to be….I NEED TO BLOG MORE. I used to blog everyday and ever since I decided to transfer over to WordPress I’ve done nothing! I might get into the swing of things by transferring old blog posts over, editing and looking back! Additionally I need to complete my Breakfast At Tiffanys Challenge. This will happen. I’ve got an orange coat. Game on.
  • Stop procrastinating (ironic, as I am writing this while avoiding the thousands of essays I need to write. However it’s not January yet – I need to take advantage of my numbered procrastinating days)
  • This next one sounds a little geeky. I am determined to enter the Countryfile calendar. I miss photography and want to get back into it. Also I am a country girl. However the biggest reason for this is that I adore the cute hedgehog which is on the calendar this year. I want my own version of a happy hedgehog!
  • In keeping in theme of this blog, I also want to enter the Vintage Life Magazine photography of the month. Just to enter would be fun and it gives me an excuse to get all vintaged up! All of the entries are absolutely beautiful and it’s fun to get involved!
  • I need to get more involved with extra curricular university things. I’m going to make an effort to go to the Swing Dance Society classes. And learn the Charlston.
  • And finally….the ‘showstopper.’…I spend too much money in high street shops, and have loads of clothes. If I don’t go in highstreet shops, I won’t buy as much. You see my point? ……..I’m going on a Topshop BAN. FOR. A. YEAR. No offence to you Topshop, you are beautiful but….money. This will probably be an ongoing future blog discussion, linking in with resolution number one…to blog more!!!
Wish me luck ( especially with the last one)
And Merry Christmas everyone! xxx
