new year, same (but better) me

Honestly, I'm not a big fan of resolutions. Or at least specific resolutions. The pressure is too high and it's just unnecessary stress. I can understand that they work fabulously for some, but not me. One year I tried not to eat any chocolate and I completely forgot one morning, probably three days in, and had some chocolate cereal. I felt so disheartened that the tears began to flow. Let's bear in mind that I was probably nine years old at the time. 

I do want to document a couple of resolutions I have for this year, just for myself so I have something solid to look back on.

So here's to 2017.


This is definitely something I say every single year, but I always feel that I could be doing more. Life is busy, and it's very tempting to take a nap or just watch Netflix after a long day but that's not what I want to prioritise. Of course, taking a break is crucial but only when necessary. I want to make the most of my everyday. Be that in wearing a funkier outfit, and sharing that with the world, starting my homework earlier or even planning various social media posts. I want to work to the fullest in every outlet possible, in school and all other fields.


Last year my new years resolution was to say yes to more things. I think that I definitely achieved that this year, but perhaps too much. I would say yes to things I didn't want to do and exhaust myself. So, this year I want to prioritise myself. I actually find this really difficult. I would drop anything and everything if someone I loved needed me, and of course that isn't going to change, but I do need to focus on my own health and do a couple more self care activities. I've never had a problem with being worried about what other people think of me, but I want to take this to the next level and be even more bold in who I am.


I love the look of a sleek pair of trousers, and until very recently I had none in my wardrobe. I now own two lovely pairs of black trousers, but 2017 will be the year that I branch out in the trouser department. I'm big into comfortable fashion, therefore trousers are a fabulous way to spice up an outfit and still remain comfortable. Watch out trousers, I'm coming for you.


I feel as though I am a pretty well informed person. I'm up to do date on current events, especially in the worlds of politics and fashion, yet there is always more knowledge to clutch onto. If I want to do any form of writing in my life, which I do, I have got to read more. Specifically, magazines and books. I'm doing a fair amount of purchasing on this front in the hopes it will inspire me to actually open them up. I'm a pretty slow reader so I am often discouraged by this. I do a lot of travelling, so instead of sleeping on planes and trains and whatnot perhaps I should open up a book every once in a while.
