Welcome To 2014.


Okay, I'm sure you've seen New Years posts a plenty, but seeing this is my first Christmas/New Year as a blogger, I couldn't leave it out! How was New Years Eve for you? Did you spend the night dancing until the early hours or did you spend it like I did in the warm comforts of your own home?  So, welcome to 2014. It's Chapter one and day one of 365.  I love the quote  'Do what you love and fill the 365 pages of a brand new book'. It inspires me to keep writing in a little diary, even if its just a few bullet points a day. I always remember starting a new diary on January 1st every year without fail when I was younger, I'd write in for a week weeks avidly and then it would be long forgotten. I've never been one for New Years to be honest. I look at Resolutions and wonder why do we have to wait until the 1st day of a new year to start something new and exciting? So without babbling on too much, I just want to have a quick little look at what resolutions I set myself for 2013 and whether I met them.
Look after my skin - This one I stuck to all throughout the year! Blogging has taught me a lot, I've learnt a lot about skincare and which products suit my skin best and I enjoy looking after my skin and keeping it in good condition! I used a makeup wipe for the first time in ages yesterday and I still can't quite believe how much better for my skin it is to use micellar water instead!
Start writing a book - Okay, this didn't happen. Instead I started writing something different - this little blog! I started writing in February and I haven't looked back ever since. Of course, I have talked about the days where I feel down about my blog but I feel it has helped my confidence grow and it's the perfect hobby.
Always work hard - Oh yes, I did this one! I've worked throughout the year, always giving my best and I actually feel a little proud of myself (I know, I'm sorry).
Enter competitions - I didn't do this as much as I'd have hoped as blogging took over my priorities! I did enter a few here and there but it's been a very quiet year on the competition front for me.
Save money - I've done this throughout the year and I'm happy with it. I went on a bit of a shopping binge and ended up wasting money on things I didn't need, want or even use, so I'm disappointed with myself at that. I vow not to do it anymore.
Smile - At the risk of sounding cheesy, I most certainly did!
I am looking forward to seeing what 2014 brings. I'm always a little apprehensive and worry slightly in case things begin to go wrong but I won't focus on that. I've got lots to look forward to. I'll be starting my new job soon, I'm off to Florida in May and being a bridesmaid in July. I haven't set myself any resolutions this year as there is only one thing that I want to focus on and that is my blog. I am not setting myself any unrealistic goals as sometimes life gets in the way and bloggers block sets in, so I'm keeping it simple. I'm just planning to keep on blogging, improve my photography and to just enjoy myself.
Happy New Year x
