It’s January…. As in, a whole new year has begun. I hope you all had a wonderfully fulfilling Christmas and celebrated the new year with as much drunken debauchery as your heart desired. As generic as it sounds, a new year obviously signifies new beginnings, a fresh start. This year my resolutions are mainly to get this blog going properly, hopefully posting more regularly… I enjoy putting posts up and receiving your feedback, it’s always encouraging!
Another resolution is to stick to a spending budget. Ha! It’s laughable but I’m honestly going to try! I’m working full time now and I’ve never earned as much money as I am so for me to have a decent amount of money in my bank account is too much for my fashion-brain to handle! Here’s an example… Two days after Christmas, when the sales were already one day in, I decided to buy myself a McQueen dress. Yes, you did see that right, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. Why do I need a McQueen dress? I don’t know. Lust? Love? Madness? But anyway…. The point is I spend too much and I need to reeeeel it in. By miles. No more designer clothing. No more expensive beauty sprees. No more shoe-buying. I have enough clothes. I have more shoes than I have room for and I have over 50 lipsticks. I think I’m good for the next 7 years, let alone just 2013.
So 2013 is the year I also go off to university…. I’m going to The University for the Creative Arts in Epsom to study Fashion Journalism in September and in all honesty I can’t wait! I’ve no idea why on earth thought I needed a gap year because I feel like I just want to get out there.
There are a couple of other personal achievements I hope to reach this year, just silly things to make myself feel better I suppose!
Anyway, this has been a rather ramble-ramble post and it’s not really going anywhere so I’ll sign off here! I have a blog post planned on my current favourite trend for this winter so that should be up in a couple of days!
Happy New Year!
So… I perhaps should’ve said something along the lines of “farewell” in my last post, the amount of time I’ve been AWOL. Apologies apologies apologies and more apologies for the lack of posting of the past few months!! I’ve been so busy with my last A Level exams at school, that I just haven’t had the time to write any quality blog posts. Since the beginning, I’ve pledged to only write posts of substance and not just posting for the sake of posting, basically I want you to actually have something interesting to read rather than just a crappy post that took me 2 minutes.
But things are now about to change!! Now that my exams are over, I have enough time to dedicate it to posting on my blog – of which I am currently planning many many posts for! Lots of exciting things for me to research and bring to you over the upcoming weeks, including my 18th birthday celebrations, Madonna concerts, and a couple of reviews – among other fashion-related articles!
So this has basically been a quick update post to let you all know that I haven’t died or forgotten about you (although you’ve quite possibly forgotten about me). So I hope you haven’t missed me too much (?) and look forward to your responses on my upcoming blog posts!
