2013... Let's Do This.

Tuesday, 1 January 2013

•Hey my loves! Happy 2013 to you all! I hope you had an amazing night celebrating the end of 2012 and the beginning of another year with your loved ones but hopefully none of you are feeling quite as drained as I am today. On top of the severe hangover (damn you Jaeger) and zero sleep, I've also done my fair share of driving and spent no way near enough time in bed so I've certainly felt better and looked a helluva lot better too... Sigh.

Anyway, I thought I'd jump on the blogging bandwagon and do a short round up of my resolutions for the New Year as well as a summery of the past 12 months so here goes...

Number 1 // Save save save.

This is totally boring and responsible by my standards but I can genuinely say I freak out a little when I think about the fact that I've spent as I've earned for all of my working life. I have no regrets in a sense that I've had some incredible experiences over the past few years and racked up so many air miles visiting places like New York, Las Vegas and Dubai as well as getting a new car and having lots of mini breaks and road trips, but I really do think this year has to be the year that I knuckle down. My aim is to have at least £3,000 by the 31st of December 2013, which with a little will power is more than doable but I can't promise I'll be able to reign in my shopping habit (which is verging on out of control) so I'm trying to keep it relatively real too... Eek, no pressure.
 
Number 2 // Record more memories.
 
I take pictures of everything. I'm the girl at the table that takes pictures of food and drink or things in shops that I like. But other than the obligatory drunken photos on nights out with friends or Chris I really don't feel like I take enough with the important people in my life such as my niece and nephew or my parents. It's a sad thought but pictures are the only things left to look back on when children grow up or loved ones pass away and there are literally albums upon albums of me and my brother when we were growing up which make me so happy, so I really want to ditch the notion of taking pictures on my iPhone and make an effort to print pictures off and put them in to albums so that I have something I can pick up and flick through when I need cheering up!
 
Number 3 // Worry less.

Chris will vouch for this, I'm a worrier. I find myself losing sleep over what seems minuscule the next day and am always wondering if I could I have done more / done that thing differently. I really need to learn to let more go, take less to heart and remember that worrying never solves or even remotely improves a situation but positive thinking does and that it's okay to not have all the answers ALL of the time.

Number 4 // Learn more.

I love learning. I'm a bit of a knowledge junkie and though I definitely can't claim to know lots about all the things I'm interested in, I really do want to commit myself to learning something entirely new in 2013. I'm thinking a language and leaning towards Spanish at the moment, though I'm totally sucked in by doing another styling course at London College of Fashion too. Maybe I'll marry the two and just become a Spanish speaking stylist?! Hell why not, I really want 2013 to be a progressive year so there's room for lots of new challenges...

2012 Round Up //

Wow, what a year. I can honestly say this year has been one of the most up and down and low and high years of my life. 2011 had ended badly for me personally and lots of negative emotions from a tough year had seeped in to 2012 and seemingly effected a lot of my relationships. It's hard to pin point why life goes a way you never thought possible and why certain things happen but I think the most important thing in life is learning a lesson from a misjudgement or mistake and becoming a better person because of it.
My highlights have included two brilliant girly holidays to Egypt and Ibiza, a weekend in Istanbul and a week in Cyprus visiting family plus a good friend's wedding in Dubai. I've had some amazing nights out with my circle of girls, met some lovely bloggers and made so many new friends, had many fun adventures with Chris (my birthday surprises being top of the list) and ended it all with a great Christmas.
It's been a year I won't forget for so many reasons but it's definitely one I'm ready to leave behind. Today is the blank page of a whole new chapter, are you ready to write some more memories?!xo
