2016 New Years Resolutions!

After such a delightful Christmas and some chocolate indulgence I saw the New Year popping around the corner and to be honest I'm quite exited for it! Although there is going to be a couple of mad busy months this year I really feel enthusiastic about making some little changes here and there to make for a year of adventure and happiness. Seen as I am so excited to make this upcoming year super amazing and sparkly bright I really wanted to share with you my little positive changes I'm going to be enjoying through the New Year. Let the lovely little list begin!

  • Find a cute jar, maybe decorate it and whenever I make a happy memory write it down on a little slip of paper and put it in the jar. Often I find myself clueless as to what I did in the past week, even if it was a busy week or full of fun little activities. As I have grown over the past few years, in mind and soul, I've truly started to realised the importance and sentimentality of life and how precious it is and I really want to value and cherish every happy memory I make. Filling these delightful notes in a jar means whenever I am feeling low or simply can't remember what I have been up to in the past few days I can look through all the happy memories I have made and find joy in reading them.
  • When people are hurtful or not so nice smile, remain kind, as I do, and don't let their coldness hurt me. At the end of the day harsh words and unkind people aren't worth the worry, it's their loss and I'm happy being me, a kind and lovely person. Life is not worth the worry!
  • Get to bed by 10 pm every night. Now I'm not one to stay up late irresponsibly, playing video games or somewhat, however I often get really tired with college. Often I end up getting into my work and before I know it, it's 9 pm and I haven't had any time for myself to simply blog or have a chilled out flick through Instagram and when I go to bed I find it hard to fall asleep straight away as I'm desperate for a little time to myself. Going to bed early should hopefully give me a bit more energy so the next day I can work twice as efficiently and at the end of the day have some time to myself! 
  • Wear my braces every night. When I was about 12 I had train track braces to straighten out my teeth and after a year was given a retainer to wear every night. I did so for about two to three years however once I got to my hectic final year in school my braces went out the window and I barely wore them at all. I really value looking after myself and although it's more a cosmetic thing I love having lovely teeth and I really want to keep them lovely for as long as I can.
  • Get more active, not to change my body shape, just to help myself feel a bit more energized. 
  • Improve my flexibility and learn to do the splits. I always envy those who simply fall into the splits and pull out a high arabesque with ease so I thought why not train myself to be able to do that too. 
  • Get back into ice skating and roller skating. I love these sports with a passion and find so much joy in doing them, especially when I build my confidence up and can do a few spins and jumps. 
  • Fill my eyebrows in at least once a week. It's not much of a life changing decision however I thoroughly enjoy doing my make up however eyebrows just aren't my forte and do you know what it is something I would really like to master!
  • Wear more winged eye liner. Recently I have been trying the winged look and I can actually see improvement in my eye liner winging skills and I really think it complements my eyes. 2016 will be the year I conquer the winged eye liner, I am most excited about it!
  • Do more photography. I absolutely adore this hobby and find so much joy in capturing dainty little, magical pictures and treasuring them. For Christmas I was most excited to receive a photography book off Father Christmas and I tell you I'm going to be reading it extensively with joy to help develop my photography skills and actually begin to understand all the parts of my camera!
  • BLOG MOREEEE!!! Blogging is one of my most favourite hobbies and love to get creative with make up and create a multitude of eye looks. I also love it when I find an unexpected staple beauty product and want to rave about it until the cows come home.
So there it is, my little list of exciting change and new ideas to enjoy in 2016. I hope you have a wonderful New Year that is positive, productive and full of joy and I'm most excited to get blogging away in the New Year!
