My 2016 New Years Resolutions

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

It's crazy how quickly 2015 passed, and now it's time once again to pick my resolutions for the upcoming year. In my previous post, I reviewed last year's goals and said which once I had achieved and which ones I hadn't, so if you haven't seen that then you can find it here. Now, I will be deciding on my newest resolutions, so I thought it might be interesting to share them with you.

Goal 1: Make more of an effort with my makeup
Quite often, I'll go for a minimalistic makeup look or only apply a bit of concealer and mascara before I'm good to go. However, I've realised that I have a lot of makeup and might as well use it whenever I get the chance, particularly when going out and on the weekends. I really enjoy applying makeup and trying different products, so I definitely want to make the most of this and take the time to apply both more makeup and also vary my makeup looks.

Goal 2: Stick to an effective skincare routine
This is a repeat resolution from last year, which I completely failed at, so I thought it was only right to give it another go. I’m quite bad at sticking to a skincare routine, especially when I’m not wearing any makeup, and I understand that this is terrible for your skin. Now that I’ve got the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, I definitely feel as though I will be able to maintain an effective skincare routine and I'm going to try my hardest to keep it up.

Goal 3: Read as many books as possible
I go through phases of reading lots of books and then not picking up one for a while, but I definitely want to steer away from this bad habit and start reading books regularly. Reading is probably one of my favourite hobbies and I’ll happily spend all night with my nose in a good book, but I want to try my hardest to get through more books this year, as well as trying novels by new authors and choosing more challenging reads.

Goal 4: Work harder to improve my blog content
I’m always looking to improve my blog, and right now I feel as though my problem lies with my content. I’m happy with the appearance of my blog and I’ve definitely upped my photography more recently, but I really want to try my hardest to create engaging, captivating content that attracts my readers. I'll be working on all aspects of blogging in 2016, with a particular focus on creating the best posts possible.

Goal 5: Have a healthier lifestyle
I’m quite unhealthy, with a chocolate obsession and spending a lot of my free time on my laptop, rather than exercising. However, I really want to improve this and I'd like to try and exercise more often, as I actually enjoy it when I make the effort. I also want to eat better foods and drink more water, as I definitely find this beneficial but often don't do it. I say this every year and it never happens, but this time, I’m determined to change.

I hope you liked hearing what my New Years Resolutions are and I'll make sure to update you on how well I'm doing in the future. I'd love to know what your resolutions are for the new year, so make sure you let me know down in the comments. Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a wonderful New Year since I'll next see you in 2016!
