'new year, new me'

So its that time of year where everyone starts with the 'new year, new me' statuses and mantras and everyone just rolls their eyes in dismay. However, this year I am actually going to stand by this.

Everyone has ways in which they want to improve themselves, whether is by starting to go to the gym or perhaps being a little more selfish and having some more 'me time'. That is why this year that is exactly what I intend to do. I know looking at me you're thinking you don't need to go to the gym there is nothing of you! and quite frankly if I am being honest I won't be going to the gym (its too expensive) however what I do intend to do is exercise more, I am not really that active, sitting behind a desk for 36 hours a week, the only actual real exercise I get is running for the train! I want to be able to run for the train without having a stitch. That is why I am hoping to go on more walks, Sometimes its just good to clear your mind. I will not be spending so much time on my phone, which I know if my mum is reading this she won't believe me for one minute but that is what I am to do (hey mum *inserts waving hand emoji*).

Another way I want to better myself this year is to spend a little bit more time on my appearnace. If I am being honest with you I do not wear any makeup during the week, I hardly ever do anything fancy with my hair and I normally live in my converse. That is why I will be spending a little bit more time on me. I am currently trying to find a new foundation, I am thinking of NARS however I am not sure what skin tone I would be and where I can even buy it from in the UK? The reason why I stopped wearing makeup was because I noticed that my skin wasn't reacting very well to it, it was becoming dry and very unattractive. Don't get me wrong my skin isn't nautally that bad. Spots come and literately go within a couple of days.

I know budgeting and going for luxury items can be hard sometimes, however I would prefer to spend a little bit more on something if I know its going to be more practical and work 100x better than a cheaper version.

If you have any foundation recommendations for dry skin and good coverage please let me know.

I also want to be more advertuous with my hair, although it is at a length where I can't really do a lot with it I really want to be more creative. Shall I chop it to a messy bob? Shall I continue to grow it so its gets to a more experimental length? I have no idea?

I have also let my style slip a lot as well. I might seem all presentable in my blog photos, but in real life I am a complete slob... couch potato! I have so many jumpers and tops that are so unflattering that I literally live in. I know everyone has oversized tees and clothers but the amount I have is purpely ridiculous. I need to enhance my figure more as I think its important and essential for everyone to feel comfortable and confident in what they wear and be proud to show off their assets! Even if it takes you 2 hours to get ready as long as you feel and look good that doesn't matter.

If you have made it this far congratulations!

My final goal for this year is to focus on my blog a lot more. Yes I know I think I have said this every single year, but I want to make my blog posts more personal. I sort of lost touch with my blog posts, I am having some serious trouble with my writing technique at the moment. I stopped proof reading my posts because I have been cringing so hard at what I have wrote.

I know that balancing a job and a blog is hard work which is why even if I don't post on here as regularly as I would like. I will ensure that the posts I do upload are not crappy!!

Have you got any topics you would like me to disucss? Let me know.
