Happy New Year everyone! I can't believe how fast 2015 has gone and the changes that have happened. It's now time to look forward to what comes next.
2016 is going to be a super big year for me, the main reason being that I'm getting married!!!!!! I can't believe it's less than 6 months away now but I'm just so excited. Almost all the planning is done, I just need to sort out a few more of the little things (and go honeymoon clothes shopping...obvs).
Anyways, on to my resolutions. I'm not really one for whole-hearted resolutions, I've never really done them but what I do do is use the New Year for a chance to reflect back and think about all the wonderful things that have happened and then look forward to all the wonderful things planned to happen! So I guess what I do is set goals rather than make resolutions I won't keep so here goes.
No alcohol until the wedding. Okay this one is kind of a resolution. I did this one last year and was doing pretty well until the end of May when the other half proposed - you can't very well miss out on drinking champagne that night of your life! Up until that point I hadn't had a drop all year and got pretty buzzed pretty quickly. Despite this I really haven't gone back to drinking alcohol, more often than not I will opt for water as I just don't fancy it. Those of you who follow my Twitter and Snapchat will know that I'm quite the fitness fanatic and so this is the main reason I decided to quit.
Start vlogging! I really want to do this but at the moment I really don't have the confidence, I keep making excuses for not doing it - I hate my teeth, the lighting in the house is rubbish blah blah but there's really no excuse and I think it would make a great sideline for the blog, what do you guys think? I've worked out the lighting I would need and the space I'd set up in the house with the best light and backdrop so would expect to start maybe in July after the honeymoon.
Get better teeth. As mentioned above, I really hate mine, they were too small when I was younger to have braces and so as I've gotten older they have begun to move out of place. My sister and best friend have just started using Invisaline (basically clear braces for adults) and they look amazing so my goal is to save up and get this done (honestly it doesn't even look like you're wearing them!).
Reach 10,000 followers on combined networks. You guys might not know that I stopped blogging for over a year, I never had the time to put in the work on my blog because of my job and so would get down when it didn't move anywhere. Now I have a new job and more time I'm working harder and seeing great progress but it's going to take some time to build up followers and make up any I lost. Technically this blog 'Arabella' is only 3 months old.
Buy a house. This one is quite ambitious and actually may not be really feasible until early 2017 but hey, a girl can try!? My fiancee and I are quite keen to start big as we want to start a family in the next few years so I'm just going to have to be patient and save the pennies.
So that's pretty much it! Quite simple but still ambitious. What do you guys have planned for 2016?
