HAPPY NEW YEAR! Updates, goals and more.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all have had a good Christmas and new year. I know it is a little late and I haven't posted anything since before Christmas!

If any of you follow me on YouTube then you will know it has been a very busy couple of months with me working part time as well as being in college, so I simply have not had enough time to create quality blog posts for you all, but I'm back! 

(My latest YouTube video)
So I thought I would update you all in this post before we get back to 'business'. I recently turned 19 on the 16th of January. My university application has now been sent off to study child nursing and I've already heard back from a couple of universities for interviews and tests so I'm still hopeful at the moment haha. I have a few reviews coming up for you in the next couple of blog posts and I'm very excited for what 2015 has to offer. 

In my previous blog post, it was the #MinkStoneMyPiece style challenge. If you watch my YouTube videos ( then you will know that I was one of the blogger winners of this and I received the necklace I created as a prize. To purchase the necklace: To create your own visit: Thanks again to Mink and Stone for the opportunity.

I don't have any New Years Resolutions as such, but I have a few goals I'd like to share with you all as I think it will help me be a little more accountable for what I've decided to change or improve for this year. Plus, I think it would be a good reference point at the end of December 2015 (wow that sounds weird) to see how many I have stuck to and how I've changed over the year. But anyway enough babbling and let me just get on with it.

My top 10 goals for 2015
1. To be More Organised.
I don't know if I've said this before, but I'm quite busy (lol I have) but it is now even more essential for me to be more organised so I don't get stressed out and forget important deadlines.

2. Blog More.
This is a very important goal for me because I love blogging and it is my semi- creative outlet and also quite different to what I do day- to- day. I need to be more regular with it.

3. Be Healthier.
I know I'm not alone with the resolve to be healthier this year and everyone knows that the gyms are usually packed in January and empty for the rest of the year but I definitely want to change my whole diet. I do have a weight loss goal, but I want to maintain a healthy being permanently so watch this space for health related posts

4. More Me Time
As I mentioned above in 1. I want to be more organised, but I also need to remember to take more me time to help me remain sane and enjoy life a little more

5. Save Money
As I hope to head off to university this year it is becoming more and more important for me to save money and do less spending on things I don't need. I'm not optimistic as I know myself quite well, so I'll let y'all know

6. Learn How to Drive
No explanation needed I think. I'm so over this bus life.

7. Have healthier hair
As much I love experimenting with my own hair, I fear it has caused some breakage and damage and I'm sure I'm not retaining as much hair length as I can. I hope to change this in 2015.

For fear of this blog post becoming unnecessarily long I'm going to stop there, but thank you all for reading and I'll be back v v soon.
