Hello 2019! ♥︎
Happy New Year!! I hope you had the best end to the year. I love reading or hearing other peoples goals. I don’t really have many ‘resolutions’ as such but I do like to make a list of the places I want to go, the things I want to achieve and so on, just to put it out in the universe (whatever that means)
Seriously though, this year I really want to push myself out of my comfort zone. I want to push my blog to be at it’s best. I am actually really happy with how it looks but I want to feature more things and have a proper schedule. I want to start by setting up my Youtube channel and feature videos on here. I used to always film myself singing or talking etc when I was younger so I thought why wouldn’t I love it now? haha. I just want to turn everything up a notch this year. I have my intro ready to go thanks to Lawrence at Youtube Clinic who was a massive help and did it all so quickly for me.
I was ill over Christmas so I am taking that as a way to appreciate the little things like, my voice! Obviously, our health is super important and we tend to take it for granted but this year I really want to get into some healthier choices. I have a juicer now so I want super fresh juices every morning, a great way to get my veg intake (I hate veg) so will definitely have to juice it I think! I also want to get back into the gym and do some more yoga too. I used to love going to the gym but I started doing home workouts but I feel like I work a lot harder if I’m in an actual gym so I’m definitely up for starting again, it helps clear my mind so much and I prefer doing yoga in classes rather than at home too, although it’s always scary at first!
My anxiety has slowed me down the last two years but I really want this year to be different I have already noticed changes but I am willing to push myself a little more. I want to travel more too, especially with Louie, my Pug. I love travelling but any dog owner will know it is awful leaving them behind so I want to find as many cute, cosy, luxury dog hotels that I can find, and hopefully feature them on here too.
I also want to build better relationships with people. Last year was a bit rough for me, I had someone block me, but it was someone who was all fine face to face and I still saw them at family gatherings but they still had me blocked because of an argument, it was a weird time lol. I tried to make amends with them and I have spent the majority of the year, texting them, checking up on them and just trying to make an effort. If it was just a friend or whatever then I would’ve left it but family means a lot to me and my nan hasn’t been with us for a while now and she loved the family being close but I have learnt to take a step back and realise that some people just don’t really give a shit. Some people don’t feel the need to slot you into their lives so you’ve got to put all your effort into people who will return the love and the time. Don’t waste your time on the wrong people.
When it comes to my blog and social platforms I wanna get more personal, 2018 had me sucked into all kinds of strict themes which resulted in barely any posting because it didn’t fit my ‘theme’ which is totally my fault. This year I want my theme to be life. I want to share chilled days with Louie, my thoughts on topics close to me, I wanna have more girl talks chatting about friendships, love and empowerment. I noticed that I had begun to censor myself on here so my blog looked super formal/professional but the truth is, my blog is a reflection of me. I’m not super sleek all the time, I can be a little messy and a little chaotic, I can be sarcastic and dry humoured but also have deep thoughts, I’m all kinds of things so I want to take the opportunity to show you all the various sides instead of being one dimentional and a clone of other cliché bloggers, there are enough beautifully edited photos but I also love the beautiful chaos, the mirror selfies, the no makeup days, the bed head days and the dog walk OOTD’s where I’m wearing my boyfriends clothes. I want a balance of all those things, beautiful edits mixed with a little bit of natural chaos because I think we can all relate to that.
While I’m on the discussion of keeping things chaotically beautiful and less, blogger clichés. Which I do try and steer clear from and If you follow me on Instagram, the strict themes are going. I want it to still look pretty over there and a reflection of my blog but I also wanna share some cute little behind the scenes, maybe more so on stories or something and less edited/posed shots and more natural unprofessional shots I just want it to be a little bit more ‘me’ and a little more balance, because y’know balance is the key to everything.
That’s my little insight into what I want to do with this year. Do you have any goals for this year? Don’t forget to come back every Wednesday & Sunday for new blog posts! Soon to be new videos too!
Happy New Year everyone ♥︎
