Resolutions can be seen as a “dirty word”, associated with failed and broken promises to one’s self. So this year I’ve decided to set some goals for myself and not be disappointed in myself if I don’t accomplish them with a set time limit. After all, we should celebrate every moment in our lives, whether it be a huge achievement such as completing a uni course or getting that dream job or a small success such as keeping a plant alive for more than a week or not eating so much chocolate!
* Post more content/more often – Keep an eye on my Insta and my Blog, I’ve got lots planned for 2017
* Shop smarter – Stop buying into every trend I like, make sure it fits correctly, buy more quality fabrics/styles, buy second hand, investment pieces, DONT SUCCUMB TO SALES!
*Eat healthier/Exercise more – I’m pretty sure this one gets broken year after year, but now I have declared it – it’s time to follow through
*Network more/Make opportunities happen – I’m known to be quite shy, but this year I’m determined to create bigger and better opportunities for myself
*Be more productive – The endless scrolling on Facebook when I could be catching up on my magazines, cleaning or preparing blog posts, set a time limit and then get back to my tasks
*No retail job for Christmas 2017 – As much as I love my current job, My goal for a long time has been to land a fashion marketing/trend forecasting/social media/content creation/administration type position – 2017 has to be the year
I hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas and New Year, celebrating with family and friends
