Whenever I make New Years resolutions I just expect not to keep them because we all know it an be difficult trying to change. This year, however, I have tried to set myself realistic resolutions to try and make it easier for myself and actually try to stick to them.
To eat healthier – lets not kid ourselves we all know I’m not going to go to the gym or exercise more but just to eat healthier by cutting down on the amount of chocolate and other unhealthy foods can help.
Drink more water – this year I have been quite unwell for not drinking enough; so this year I have decided to try and drink lots more water.
Post more blog posts – I set up a blog because I enjoy reading other peoples and wanted to share with you what I like. I set an unrealistic target of uploading three posts a week; with work and coursework and everything else I do, I just wasn’t able to always post that often. This year I have decided to upload two posts a week which is slightly easier for me to do.
To balance my life – since starting my apprenticeship in November I have found it difficult balancing work with seeing my friends. This year I want to be on top of my coursework and make time to see my friends and just rest and look after myself.
These are my New Years resolutions I would love to hear what some of yours are. At the end of the year I think I will do a review of my year and if I kept up these resolutions.
I thought I would share some things I got for Christmas as I know I like seeing what other people received. If you haven’t already seen I did a post on the stocking fillers, and as I said previously I am in no way showing off and am extremely grateful for everything I got.
The first and one of the only things I actually asked for was a colouring book. This may seem a bit strange if you haven’t heard about them but adult colouring books are extremely popular at the moment and as someone who likes art I really wanted one. I got an Enchanted Forest by Johanna Basford and it is a journey through a forest to find a castle. I really like it as it has lots of complex things to colour and it’s also a story which makes it more interesting. I have slowly been making my way through but am a long way off from finishing.
Another thing I got was a bag; I am completely bag obsessed and so I wanted one that was slightly smaller than my usual bags – which are huge! I also wanted it to be a darker colour for the winter. I got a navy blue bag from Accessorize which fits lots of things inside, including my umbrella! I really like it and will definitely be using it throughout winter!
I got a the Paco Rabanne Lady Million perfume with the body lotion. It smells amazing and I will be getting a lot of use out of it! I think perfume is a really lovely gift to give and receive as they are long lasting and I like finding out new perfumes I like.
Of course it wouldn’t be Christmas without receiving some Primark pyjamas! I got some really nice and soft navy blue ones with a bear on! I prefer to wear shorts so it also came with some matching shorts. Also from Primark I got a really soft Thumper (from Bambi) jumper which has a hood with ears on! It is super fluffy and so comfy to wear.
I hope you liked hearing about what I got for Christmas, please leave me a comment saying what you got as I would love to hear!
