New Years Resolutions!

As it is the 1st January it seems only right to do a post on my new years resolutions. The new year normally means the start of a whole list of things you wish to achieve, change or simply discard but come the end of January that list may well have been filed in the never to be seen again pile!

Well that is often the case for me and I haven't actually bothered making any new year resolutions for the past few years for that very reason, but this year is different, I am quite literally leaving the past behind in 2011 and starting afresh for 2012! My thinking behind this post is that if I actually put my list out there, I will have to stick to it so here goes!

Personal Resolutions:

  • Continue to lose weight and get to my goal - So far I have lost four and a half stone, most of this has been done by following the weight watchers pro points plan, I think I would like to lose another two stone eight pounds or be a comfortable size 14 (or small 16) so when I feel comfortable at a weight/size that will be where I stop! I have always been curvy and I was at my happiest when I was a 14 so I would like to get back to that! It will also mean I can do some outfit of the day posts too!
  • Use my heated rollers, wear fake lashes and lipstick more! I am a simplistic girl at heart when it comes to my make up and hair, I spend my time making other people glamorous but when it comes to me I take the easy route! So I need to inject more glamour into my routine, not necessarily every day but often! So I have dug out the heated rollers, stocked up on lashes and and have enough lipstick to sink a battle ship! 
  • Learn to say NO - I am a people pleaser and definitely find it hard to say no, but last year showed me that what goes around doesn't always come back around when it comes to niceness so its time for me to put myself first and say no sometimes, I'm sure the world won't fall apart if I do??
Blog Resolutions:
  • I wish to be more consistent with my posts, I want to make more time to get posts up even if it means scheduling them ready for the week ahead.
  • BELIEVE - I am so inspired by other bloggers and youtubers but sometimes find myself doubting whether I am as good as them, but I need to remember I am ME and that is a good thing! I am so grateful to all the followers and subscribers I already have and love that my words are read by you all!
  • Continue loving what I do! It goes without saying that if you are not enjoying what you are doing that will show, so I am so lucky that I love what I do and I hope that continues through out 2012!
So that's it, my list of new years resolutions! Have you made any, if so what are they? I hope that 2012 brings you all happiness and that your dreams all come true!

Stay Gorgeous

  1. Like you, I'm also a people pleaser, and I've also learned it's better ot say no sometimes. Good luck with your blog in 2012, and I'm looking forward to the OOTD's :)


  2. What great resolutions! I was reading each of them and adding them to my list of resolutions! I definitely want to make more effort with false eyelashes etc. And learn to say no! Good luck with them. :-) x

  3. Congrats on the weight loss! I feel you on the people-pleasing. I read a quote recently which went along the lines of 'Never say yes to others if it means saying no to yourself.' That resonated with me.

    Happy New Year! x

  4. I think one of my new years resolutions should have been to learn how to apply false eyelashes I just can not do it at all :( x

  5. I need to do all of your resolutions!! I haven't made any concrete ones but I know I need to shift my butt and get moving in 2012.
    Happy New Year
