Hello, 2017!

4 January 2017

Well, hello there 2017! It's nice to meet you.

After some of the events in 2016 (I still can't believe that Trump is a thing) I think a lot of people are glad to see the back of 2016, although it was a pretty great year for me personally! You can read all about my 2016 here.

I don't make new year's resolutions as I never stick to them, I always find that the more pressure I put on myself to stick to something the more I want to avoid it, so instead I make some goals that I'd like to achieve throughout the year and I thought I'd share them with you all today.

Up my style game - I practically live in jeans and baggy jumpers, which I'll definitely still do some of the time, but I do want to wear more 'trendy' clothes and jump on to the fast-paced fashion band wagon sometimes.

Experiment with make up more
- I'm one of those people who when I find a product I like, I'll stick to it and use nothing else until it runs out. This isn't a bad thing because of course you need to use what works for you, but I also want to experiment with make up more and change up my make up routine more often. My love of make up has only grown in 2016 and I can't wait to discover more amazing products this year.

Say 'yes' more - I'm gonna hold my hands up, I'm a worrier! I worry about worrying, but this isn't the healthiest way to live my life. I'm also 20 years old now (basically a Grandma!) so I told myself that it's about time I stop letting anxiety make me miss amazing opportunities. For example, I've decided that I'm probably going to live in a student house next year, which is a huge thing for me! I'm super nervous about becoming that independent but I know it's going to be amazing and probably a big learning curve for me. I'm also venturing into Youtube which is something that I've been wanting to get into for ages but haven't had the confidence to try! You can check out my channel here.

Be more organised - I've always been quite an unorganised person, although I prefer to say I'm just pretty 'chilled'. However, I'm a Uni student now and I definitely need to start being more organised when it comes to assignments and things like that. I'm also hoping to upload on my blog/channel on the same days every week, I'm thinking blog at least every Wednesday and upload videos on Sundays.

Put 110% effort into this blog - After completing Blogmas last year, I well and truly got bitten by the blogging bug! I've been blogging weekly for the past 2 years, but I'm hoping to up my game and blog at least twice weekly this year. Blogging has always been my hobby and passion, but it recently dawned on me that this could actually become a job for me. How amazing would that be?! The thought of earning money from something that I just love doing is an amazing thought for me and someday I hope for it to be a reality.

So that's what I'm aiming to achieve in 2017! What about you, what are your goals? I'd love to hear them in the comments!
