Hello 2017

I have to be honest, I'm the worst person at sticking to new years resolutions. Not because of my lack of dedication or because of laziness, I just forget. 

This year, I want to not only change that, but change the kind of resolutions I'm setting for myself. Yes I still want to save thousands of pounds and lose 3 stone but are those goals achievable? Yes. Can I be bothered? No.

So today, before I create my 'Fuck Budget' (more on this later in the week) I thought I'd do a quick round up of things I would like to achieve and lifestyle changes I want to make in 2017. 

I want to decide how I feel about my driving test. I passed my theory almost a year ago but since, haven't been slightly arsed to even think about taking my actual test. It's been booked and rebooked more times than I'd care to think. This year I just want to decide, do I want to do it or not. 

I want to get fit. I don't mean I want to lose a tonne of weight or go on some ridiculous diet that I can't follow. I just want to get fit. To tone my arms, legs and preferably my stomach. I want to be able to go for a run and not feel like I want to collapse 5 minutes in. There is no goal weight in mind, just fitness. 

See my family more. I can literally count on one hand how many times I saw my grandparents last year and it hit me very recently that they're not going to be around forever. Now, I don't mean that after my grandparents I'm going to be rushing out to see every second cousin under the sun. Just the family I want to keep close.

Save money Stop wasting money. I want to have money to fall back on but I also want to save for a big trip next year. I don't just mean putting money aside out of my salary, I mean not blowing it on 5 cocktail nights or endless fridge items that I let go out of date. 

Care less about peoples opinions. I don't want to be constantly worried about what people think of my diet, my hair colour, whether I swear too much etc. Not my issue. 

Bother less with those that have a negative impact on my life. People constantly talking shit, causing drama or being a general misery there is no longer a place for you in my life. 

And finally, last but not least. Invest in my blog. I want to 100% invest more time and money into my blog in 2017. I want to engage with more people, make some great friends and enjoy every second of it. I want to be consistent but not strain myself. 
And there you have it, some of my new years resolutions. I'd love to know what your plans are for the year! Let me know in the comments. 



  1. I love this! Your so right you need to be realistic with goals etc. I think mine are your goals are pretty much the same in all honesty! I love your blog, its such a nice layout with great photography. I like its easy to navigate but not too simple! (One of my resolutions is to engage more with bloggers and give genuine compliments) Have a great 2017 look forward to reading about it

    1. I think it's so important to be realistic other wise it feels like such a struggle to stick to goals. Thank you so much and thank you for stopping by! Have a fab 2017! X
