Firstly, I hope everyone had the best Christmas! Mine was lovely and I am now carrying a layer of turkey and Quality Street round my waist.

So it's been a few weeks and my blog has been collecting dust! Everything has become so hectic recently and a lot has happened! 

Those of you that follow me on Twitter will know that my puppy, Badger had to have an operation. She's obsessed with eating anything she can get her little paws on which resulted in a mass of plastic, fluff and more plastic being formed in her stomach and intestine and needing to be removed. It made her really sick, dehydrated and unresponsive (and I just want to say, it's so easy to just assume your pet is fine when they're ill but always take them to the vet if they're not themselves. We almost didn't take Badger, and she wouldn't be alive now if we hadn't) Anyways, after the operation she was back to her usual bouncy self but it was still a very draining twenty four hours!

Also, Christmas present shopping seemed to take over my life during Badger's recovery time. Whilst she felt fine, she actually need quite a bit of looking after for two weeks. Therefore, I became an online shopping maniac. I think I only actually bought my wrapping paper in a physical shop. I would definitely recommend online present shopping. It didn't have to fight people in Boots in the 3 for 2 section and I got some beautiful unique gifts for my friends and family.

Finally, I have been obsessively applying for various jobs and I have been offered an amazing role! I won't go too much into detail until I've started but I'll be working for
an expanding student accommodation company, managing the halls and doing various social media work with them!

So, I've been reading a lot of end of year review posts this week and thought I would get involved and write mine. Unfortunately 2013 hasn't been the best year for me. I made some awful mistakes - particularly work related and the past six months have been horrible. However I did start my blog and been able to do some amazing things because of it! So instead of dwelling on my horrible year, I thought I would write a more positive look at 2014.

So things I want to do next year -

Travel - I really want to book a weekend to New York (pretend I'm in Girls) go to Berlin (pretend it's 1920's) and me and my boyfriend need to go to Paris (pretend I'm French)! Next year is all about experiences for me and I want to see as much as possible! I'm not the kind of girl that desperately needs to go trekking around Nepal, there's so many much closer places to see first!

Find something and stick to it - There are thousands of things I want to do in my tiny lifetime and I plan on achieving most of them. Now 22, I have had so many jobs in various sectors and in everyone I want to work my way up. Some less aspirational than others, but no matter what I always want to be the best. At everything. So I need to find a route to becoming the best fashion writer/web designer/nail technician/editor/blogger/stylist/photographer/doctor/person who names nail polishes.

Show my face more - I've tested the waters with blogging. Decided what I don't want to be doing and what I want to progress with and 2014 is the year I do it properly. Of course there are no 'proper' ways of blogging but I want to try every format and I'm going to be venturing into Youtube soon! I have a few hauls planned and a few reviews so watch this space! I'm also going to start doing some OOTD's/FOTD's, lifestyle posts and writings and maybe some nail tutorials! Leave a comment below if there's anything specific you would like to see! Very excited/nervous!

So, they are my main resolutions! Of course there are the more obvious ones (stop spending all day in bed, lose weight..) but we all know they only last five minutes..

Have an amazing NYE and I hope 2014 brings you everything you want and more.
