You have no idea how tempted I was to title this post 'New Year New Me'- but out of terror that people would take it seriously I just went with '2015'. I genuinely do go around for most of January saying 'New Year New Me' in what starts out as a sarcastic manner and unfortunately begins to slip out in a somewhat more serious tone. Please do ignore if that ever happens. I mean well.

Ah 2014, it was actually a pretty good year for me, especially in comparison to 2013. I started a new job, hit over 1,500 subscribers on my You Tube channel, went away with my boyfriend for the first time in a long time and overall became a lot more settled and confident.
I'd love to achieve so much more in 2015. Sometimes the best way to help with this is to write it all down so here goes! (deep breath)....

1. Reach 2,000 subscribers on my You Tube channel by the end of January. This could be slightly ambitious, but I want to get the year off to a good start! I'd love to increase my subscribers by a lot more this year and grow my channel so I'm aiming for little goals like this each month. If you're reading my blog and you aren't subscribed to my channel then get over there and do it!

2. Start running. Last year I flirted with the idea of running. I was heading out with my brother 2-3 times a week for about two months until I started my new job and unfortunately running fell to the wayside. This year both of us are super determined to pick it up again and actually get good at it this time! We're hoping to do the Electric Run this Spring as its a short enough race, only 5k, so its a good place to get started!

3. Work on my blog. I used to love blogging and writing so much but I've neglected it so much the past few years. I really want to get back into the swing of writing a post every couple of days and keeping this blog updated.

I'd like to think this list is relatively realistic and something I can achieve this year. I'll keep you updated throughout with how the running is getting on and you'll see from my blog and my You Tube channel how everything else is going!

What are your resolutions this year? Are any the same as me?


  1. I have two resolutions this year: 1) Stop spending money, and 2) Stop buying books until I clear out half of my TBR. Right now, I'm actually sticking to #ProjectFiveBooks - you are allowed to buy one new book every time you've finished reading five books in your collection. That sounds like it could work for me rather than not buying any books at all.

    1. I should REALLY have put stop spending money as one of mine as well :/
      I love that idea! I'm a demon at spending money (that I shouldn't be spending!) on books when I have a big pile at home that need to be read! Xx
