HELLO 2015 – MY RESOLUTIONS

8 comments



Well, I am well and truly finished after this year’s festivities. I do not want to see turkey again for a long, long while nor do I want to see any kind of assorted chocolate – which will be a hard ask seeing as we have at least 5 tubs of Quality Street on the coffee table (4 of which I’ve already cleared the strawberry and orange flavoured ones.) So here it is, that obligatory post of New Year’s resolutions.  I thought long and hard about whether to write about this as I find that it’s okay to lie to myself and pretend ‘I will stick to mine this year!’ but lying to the internet… I’m kidding; I really will try harder this year to stick to the following. Promise.  


DRINK MORE, WATER
“Hi guys, my name is Nia and... I’m a cola-holic.” It’s true. I have no preference; Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Pepsi Diet, Coke Zero, Pepsi Max. It doesn’t matter; I will drink this over water any day. So this is a big one for me, I know the benefits of drinking water,  I’ve known for a very long time that I should be drinking the quoted ‘8 glasses of water’ a day. So yes – bye, bye my liquid lover. I will miss your dark, mysterious yet sweet soul.


SWEAR LESS (NO MORE F BOMBS)
Oh dear... This is a big one. I am f***ing awful at swearing (see what I did there.) I think it’s due to working in an office with only men – but I can’t blame only that. I must admit, I do enjoy the occasional bad word. Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not the kind to be in the line at Tesco f’ing and blinding around young children, it’s mainly an at home sport of mine but I think I should cut back.


BLOG HARDER
By ‘harder’ I just mean keep trying hard with posts, photography etc. I started The Pretty Beatniks 3 or 4 weeks ago now and I’m really enjoying it. I love the creativeness it brings and I love connecting with you guys! I love reading comments then checking out your blogs in return.  I’ve been reading beauty and fashion blogs for the longest time now and am so pleased to have my own little space on the internet now so I want to keep it up.


EAT WELL
This is probably one of the most common New Year’s resolutions and probably one of the first ones to fall through when you’re driving home from work at 6pm with the heaters on and the waft of the nearby KFC penetrates your car (that happens to me, a lot.) Maybe I should have typed ‘EAT BETTER’ as that’s easier to stick by. I’ll try to put extra bananas in the trolley and not 2 bags of pan au chocolat’s.  


ME TIME
Here’s one we should all be trying! It’s so important to take time out for yourself in the week; read a book, take a bath, paint your nails. Whatever it is, just do something for you. I’m a first time home owner and a first time puppy owner and as such there is always a million things to be doing. So I think just taking half an hour to read a book, watch bad television or put a mask on will be a massive improvement to my routine.


Do you have any resolutions this year?
