Happy New Year!

This is just a little post to say, I'm back!

The end of 2013 was a bit manic for me. I had a lot going on, what with interning and holding a coordinator position for another job, I really didn't have a lot of free time. And with every free minute becoming a precious moment to cram in drinks with friends or some coveted family time, my little blog was becoming a bit of a chore, which is the last thing it should be. Sadly, I lost my beloved Nan in November and that was my breaking point. So I decided to take a bit of time for myself and start blogging fresh in the New Year. So here I am, ready to launch into blogging with some newfound gusto. As it's the 1st of January, I thought it would be fitting (and slightly boring) to post my New Years Resolutions. Well, partly because it's fitting, partly because if I write them down, I'm far more likely to succeed. So here they are; my New Years Resolutions:

1. To make more time for friends, and try harder to keep in contact (this one's the same every year, and my closest friends are constantly berating me for being notoriously crap at calling them back. Sorry guys, this year it WILL change)

2. To move out (I've been saving for this one for a while now, so I'm confident it'll happen. I'm also hoping that having my own place closer to my friends will help me with resolution number 1. Fingers crossed!)

3. To get a job in the industry that I'm passionate about (not that there's anything wrong with waitressing - it's just not for me I'm afraid)

My resolutions are more goals than lifestyle changes, but I think that's OK. I have a really good feeling about this year, so here's hoping that it's a cracker. So here's to a productive, happy and wonderful 2014. I hope you are successful in all of your endeavours and have the best year yet!

I'd love to know what your New Years Resolutions are! Do you have anything special planned for the year ahead? Let me know!

  2. Ha, I am also the WORST at keeping in touch - it makes its way onto my list every year as well! ;)
    My resolutions will be up on the 13th to kick off a new series, but the big one is to write more.. I want to write an ebook! We'll see how that goes :)
    HAPPY NEW YEAR, lovely! Here's to happiness, health, and lots of handsome men with hot abs! #alliterationFTW

    1. Ooh I'm excited to read your resolutions! Good luck with the ebook, it sounds really exciting! Happy New Year to you too sweets, bring on the handsome men! xx

  3. Glad to see your back! :) I saw this post on my bloglovin' feed & thought, hmmm I haven't seen any posts from you in a while...welcome back! :)
    sorry to hear about your nan!
    Really hope 2014 is a better year for you :)

    1. Aww thank you, it feels good to be back! I feel really positive about 2014, it'll be my year, I'm sure! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year lovely, and good luck with your driving! xx

  4. Great resolutions - I also resolved to be more social. I feel like the older I get, the harder it is to make new friends so I should really treasure the friends I have.

    Happy New Year - best wishes to you in 2014! :]

    1. It's so difficult isn't it! I guess because we're not in as many situations where we would naturally meet new people as we were when we were younger - we have to actively put ourselves in them. That's the resolution I'm most adamant about keeping!
      Happy New Year to you too love, I hope you have a wonderful 2014! xx
