New Year's Eve is always a day for reflection for me.. cheesy I know, but I think the whole 'out with the old, in with the new' is a good opportunity to have a think about what you want to do more of in the year ahead and what you want to do less of.

I always enjoy reading this kind of post so I thought I would throw my two pennies worth in, more for me than anyone else. I love having an online record of achievements and goals and my blog is one of my favourite things to do. Hence why I am in my pjs on NYE feeling oh so content, nice M&S meal in the fridge and a bottle of Kir Royale chilling. BLISS.

So here are my 2017 things to try and achieve!

Get back to the Gym
I used to love going to the Gym as more longer term readers will remember, but I really fell out of love with it this year in a big way. I was hating every session and stopped going - but next year has to change. I have a gym at work so there is no excuse, I just have to get back into the routine. Fresh workout attire usually kick starts a bit of motivation so I am going to treat myself and start my new year with a nice walk tomorrow to blow the cobwebs away.

Learn more about SEO
I'd be lying if I said I gave two hoots about DA scores and all that as for me my blog is a hobby that I enjoy. That said, I do think I could easily make a difference by being a little more SEO savvy so next year I plan to increase my knowledge in this area.

Travel More
This is super generic I know and to be fair I think my job will take me to some new places but I want to travel a bit, not necessarily anywhere majorly far away but it would be nice to get out and about a bit more rather than spend my weekends bumming around my flat!

Say Yes
Not to the dress, FYI. Just yes in general.. blogger events, dates, general merriment. I need to push myself out of my comfort zone and stop being a lazy bones!

Moisturise every day
I mean, there's not too much to say about this other than, I am turning 32 in Feb and I don't want a face like an old boot in years to come.

Save, Save and Save
2017 I really want to be the year I try and buy a house. Granted I will need some assistance from my parents but I am longing for my own piece of property where I can let my design dreams run wild.

Blog More
As I said, my blog is my ultimate fave hobby and I want to get into a better routine of writing and posting. Over the years I have had some fantastic opportunities to write content for brands and I would really like to do even more next year.

Kick ass at work
I have started a new job before Christmas and am already seriously loving it. I want to be top of my game and just generally display those #girlboss vibes.

Learn something new
Calligraphy, Henna, Crochet? I'm not sure yet but these were all courses I looked at in 2016 but never got round to doing. I really enjoy learning so I am going to make that happen next year.

Don't sweat the small stuff
An easy one to write but not always do.. I have a silly habit of getting wound up by the most ridiculous things and I think after all the tragic deaths and circumstances we have seen this year, I need to calm the f*ck down and put things into perspective.

So that's my list - what are you aiming for?

I would also like to take this opportunity to wish my readers a very Happy New Year. Be safe, have fun and enjoy yourselves x
