CHRISTMAS PRESENTS & NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS























Happy New Years Eve! What does everyone have planned this evening? My housemates and I are having a cocktail party, but I still have no idea what I'm wearing.... I'm torn between my new floral tapestry dress or my new Topshop skirt, but then I'd have to decide on a top to wear with it, hmm! Anyway, whilst we're still in 2012 I thought I'd show you some of the lovely Christmas presents I received last week.


































I read a post by Karina over at Beach & Dress about 2012 achievements and goals for 2013, which got me thinking not only about my own new years resolutions but also all of the things that I've already accomplished in the past year, (PMA). I think I often beat myself up for not being good enough, but when I actually take a step back and consider my life properly, I don't think I'm doing all that bad. Life could be a lot worse.  

2012 WAS THE YEAR THAT I...

...graduated with a University degree in Writing, Fashion & Culture.
...moved to London to pursue a career in Fashion.
...got my first "real" job.
...was shortlisted for the Cosmo blog awards. 
...reached over 700 blog followers.
...had my work published in a magazine.
...decided to grow my hair.
...grew up.  

2013 WILL BE THE YEAR THAT I...

...make lots of friends in London.
...become more comfortable in my own skin. 
...pay off my overdraft and start saving for the future.
...visit Belgium.
...reach over 1000 blog followers.
...excel in my current position at work.

  12. WOW. Looks like you got spoiled over Christmas! Lucky lady! I went to the Tim Walker exhibition today and loved it.

    Sad I didn't see you on my last day at Boden! Will message you for plans later this week?

    Nice goals for this year - you'll achieve all of them, I know it.

  13. Aahh I love that Tim Walker book! And I really want to read The Night Circus! I read Miss Peregrine's home for peculiar children last year though and felt a little let down by it. Happy 2013! x
