Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas and New Years. Mine was pretty quiet, but lovely all the same. I worked Christmas day from 1.30pm onwards so I spent the morning flitting around in order to see my boyfriend and my parents. My boyfriend surprised me with a holiday to Oman. We will be staying here, in February. So excited.

For New Years I spent the long weekend up in London at my boyfriends. We just went out for a meal on New Years eve and watched the fireworks from his flat. It was lovely to spend a bit of time with him.

Anyway. Onto a fresh year!

I’ve got a whole bunch of resolutions this year, so I thought I’d share them (and writing them down makes it harder to forget them too)

  1. Save money. I read somewhere that it’s advised that you should have 3 months wages saved up for a rainy day. That sounds a lot, but it makes sense. I know I can save, but last year I saved up and then blew it all. Oops. I want to get a chunk to saving behind me, then I can start to save up for the more important things, like Chanel bags….

  1. Move to London. I’ve always wanted to live in London. My boyfriend lives there, I love the buzz and there are a lot more job opportunities, plus I’m at the age where I’m desperate to move out and away from my parents security. I’m thinking this may be more of a late 2012/2013 thing, but I’d at least like to get the ball rolling this year.

  1. Be nicer. I’m so negative and such a moany old cow most of the time. I know it’s a bit difficult to change who you are, but I think I’ve just got to be more positive.

  1. Do one thing a day that makes me happy. Will help with number 3! Whether its spending 5 minutes reading a favourite magazine, helping an old lady with there shopping or eating a biscuit when I know I shouldn’t be. Positive thoughts, positive thoughts.

  1. Be more frugal. Got to stop impulse buying! I need to work on being a bit more inventive with clothes, rather than wearing them the same old way. 

I’ve set myself a weekly budget and just purchased the ‘My Weekly Budget’ app on my phone. It’s pretty basic, but very useful and I’m under my budget this week. So it’s a good start!  

Sorry my New Years post is a bit late. Unfortunately, that’s just me!

Any resolutions?
