Happy New Year...

I am a sucker for the whole "New Year New Me" that comes with every January. Something about a new year excites me to start afresh, turn a new page, set new goals... I must admit that this usually only lasts until February, I am determined to make this year different.

I have never been good at setting new years resolutions as they usually carry over year after year so I am sticking to 3 main goals...
This year I want to commit to completing things (I have a bad habit of starting something but never seeing it through) I am sure that through this I will actually surprise myself of what I am capable. My second goals ties in with this well - Be more creative! After a day at work the last thing I want to do is be crafty. This year I want to challenge myself to do more projects ( I have already planned some awesome DIY projects around the house), to blog more (Yes! I will actually stick to this one this time) and to be more creative with my outfits. Thirdly, I want to finally wear a pair of jeans. For those who know me, I will never be seen in jeans- ever! Why? Because they never look good on me and make me look big and lumpy. All I want is to be able to put on a pair of jeans without worrying if my love handles are showing or if my thighs look like marshmallows stuffed into a tight stocking. This goal is not an easy one as it will require some exercise, major dietary changes and an obsession with toning classes. I am taking on the challenge as it isn't about what the scale says to me, it is about feeling comfortable in your clothes.

As everyone slowly heads back to work and the reality of the new year hits us all, good luck! Do not miss out on an opportunity to change, to challenge yourself, to do that one thing you have been dying to do forever. Let's own this year!
