New Year’s Resolutions 2016

2016 New Years Resolutions

January 1st. The day when people wake up and swear they’re never drinking again, make New Year’s resolutions to drink more green smoothies and eat less sugar, or vow that they’re going to lose weight and “be healthy”, right? Nope I’m not going to pay for a gym membership I’ll only use for a month, only eat kale and quinoa, run until I spew or try yet another ridiculous diet in an attempt to starve my body and be slim. Fuck that. My goals for 2016 are all about making more time for myself and living a fabulous life. Continue reading

I’ve never been a big fan of New Year’s resolutions, as once January has faded they seem to have faded along with it – leaving you with a 12 month gym membership that never gets used again (seriously, gyms must be creaming it off people who never actually go), a juicer that is relegated to the back of the cupboard, a to do list a mile long that never gets a second look or a stash of nictotine patches that you’ll never actually use.

So why should a goal at this time of year be any different? Check out some of my tips below for approaching common New Year’s resolutions, get your pen and paper, write your plan down and stick it somewhere that you can see it every day! Continue reading

2014 New Year’s Resolutions

Okay lovelies, let’s talk new year’s resolutions. For years mine were the same – lose weight, get out of debt, and quit smoking. Sound familiar? Well, I am pretty happy with my body and have realised that my weight does not define me, I don’t have any debt other than my student loan, and I quit smoking on the 1st of January 2011 (so that will be three years this new year’s day!), so it’s time to move on and make some new resolutions for my future.

There comes a time when you have to stop crossing oceans for people who wouldn’t jump puddles for you
