Hello Lovelies!!

Earlier this year I made a list of things I was going to do throughout the year to make me a 'better person'.
Let's just say I have well and truly FAILED!!! I have only completed a toddlers handful and the main reason why is because I still don't know which career I want to pursue in life.

Here is the list from last year and I am adding the changes for this year!
On my first post I said I would do a post about resolutions. I make them every year and fail to succeed but this year I am determined to make them happen.
  1. Get A Job - Done and Done! Now I have my foot in the career door I need to figure out what I actually want to do. 
  2. Finish Masters Application Form - HUGE FAIL! I have changed my mind a million times about the career path I wish to take and Landscape Architecture is no longer on that list (unfortunately).
  3. Get accepted on to Landscape Architecture Masters course - Didn't even apply! Naughty Abi!
  4. Get a placement in a Landscape Architecture Firm part time - I did actually manage to get some work experience but working two jobs is definitely not for me and the latter unfortunately had to be dropped.
  5. Take a class - MAHUSIVE FAIL! I am going to do this I just need to plan my time a bit better.
  6. Get fit - ANOTHER FAIL! I would say that I am on my feet all day at work though so maybe a slight win? No?
  7. Be nicer to people - I really don't think this is ever going to happen. Working in retail prevents this from happening.
  8. Save for a holiday - Maybe this year....
  9. Go on holiday - Again, maybe this year....
  10. Get better at keeping in touch with people-I really tried with this one but I am either always working or sleeping but catching up with old friends is a must this year.
  11. Start a blog - Well this one is pretty much done so I shall cross it off my list.
I also have a few more to add so here it goes;

  1. Post regularly on my blog - I am going to designate my days off to making my blog the best it can be
  2. Eat less cake - Who am I kidding? This will never happen!
  3. Spend more time with my family - I already do but I want to see family that I don't get to see very often.
  4. Take better care of myself - This year I have been ill more times than I can count so I am going to try and eat my 5 a day and drink way more water than I do.
  5. Spend less and Save more - I am going to start doing a monthly budget series. I have more than enough of everything so I really should start saving.
  6. Decide on a career choice - I am only 24 but I really do think it's time I thought hard about what I want to do.
  7. And finally - Stay Happy! I am generally quite a happy person and try not to dwell on things too much, hopefully I won't annoy anyone too much!
Wow! That was a long post! What are your resolutions for the new year? Please do share!
Links and comments are welcome!

Much Love,


  1. Happy New Year Abi! I haven't made resolutions this year but instead I have thought about what I want to achieve both personally and on the blog. Life has a funny habit of getting in the way and sometimes it is better to just go with the flow and see where life takes you! xx

  2. Happy New Year- best of luck with all of your resolutions. YOU CAN DO IT xxxxx

  3. You have inspired me to get on with writing my new year resolutions too. A little later than planned, but thanks for being so dynamic and liberating

  4. Thank you ladies!! I will do this! I am determined! Happy New Year to all of you too! xx
