Happy New Year guys! Wow there we are, another year, time really flies. This year has not been the best year but also not the worst. Today we look back and see if I kept my New Years resolutions from last year and also look at my new ones for 2018!
This year wasn’t the most interesting for me but some nice things did happen for me this year! In the beginning of 2017 me and my boyfriend got our own little place which was the best thing ever and I’m still very happy about our little home. Soon after that we got a puppy, it’s a sweet heart but it can be a total ass haha. We had ups and down with him and a little bit of trouble towards the end of the year when we got him neutered, he was allergic to the stitches and it was a big (and expensive) drama. We had a really nice Summer in out new home that lays just behind the beach. We finally have a garden so we could finally sit outside and BBQ. In the Summer I also tried to quit smoking but I unfortunately failed, that’s one thing I really want to do in 2018. I also did lose some weight this year that I want to continue next year. I found some new hobbies this year, crocheting but also playing keyboard which my granddad teaches me. My mental health went a bit downhill this year but I’m trying to beat it now. Blog wise it didn’t really go as planned unfortunately. My first year of blogging I had a 4 posts a week schedule which was way too much for me. This year I threw the schedule out of the window but it went the opposite direction and I didn’t spend any time anymore on my blog, that’s now going a bit better luckily!
Did I keep my New Years resolutions?
My first New Years resolution was to lose weight, I did lose a little bit this year but I’m still not where I want to be. I have a lot more motivation right now so I think this year it will go a lot better.
My second New Years resolution was to quite smoking. I did do a real nice try this year and quit for 3 weeks, which is the longest I’ve ever stopped. This year I’m going to try even harder.
I also wanted to use more of my makeup products because I was neglecting a lot in my stash. I did have a lot of makeup free days this year bit when I did put on makeup I did try to use a variation of products so I do think I completed this one.
My last goal was to feel better in myself and smile more and be less stressed. With that I had some ups and downs but towards the end of the year I finally started to relax a bit more and smiled a lot more. It’s still a work in progress but I’m planning on going forward!
Did I reach my blogging goals?
Last year I also had some blogging goals. I wanted to reach 1000 followers on every social media platform. That one I didn’t really reach unfortunately but I’m going to try even harder in 2018.
For my blog followers I wanted it to be between 1500 and 2000. I now have 1575 so I did meet that goal, yay!
I also wanted to try new things on my blog and maybe wanted to start a YouTube channel. I didn’t start a YouTube channel yet but I did look into it and did some test videos. I also did a try on haul on my blog which was new for me and I do think I want to do that more.
My last goal was to collaborate with brands. That one didn’t completely fail but still not what I really wanted in my head. This year I did collaborate with Crazylenses so there is a start right?
My New Years Resolutions for 2018!
I kinda have the same ones as last year, I want to quit smoking and lose the weight I want. I also want to beat my mental health issues and live a little bit more. Last year I didn’t really do anything and stayed home a lot doing nothing with my day. This year I want to have everything together. The household, getting dressed instead of staying in my PJ’s all day long, and go out of the house a bit more. I want to do more with my life and I’m also thinking about going back to badminton again. I played badminton for many years and I still miss it sometimes, so if the finances allow me I want to go back to that as well.
My blog goals for 2018!
Blog wise I want to post a bit more than I do now, I was thinking about doing a blog post every 2 or 3 days. I want to work on my blog everyday a little bit, even if it’s just making photo’s, looking for inspiration or editing.
For my followers I want to be at 2500, I think I can make that, and for my social media I will keep the same goal as last year as I didn’t make it, 1000 on every platform.
This year I want to try to start a YouTube channel, I still need to do a lot before I’m ready but I do want to make more work of it.
That was everything guys, I hope you all enjoyed reading and I will see you all next time, and once again HAPPY NEW YEAR!
