New Year Resolutions. Thoughts.

Normally, I’m not one to full heartedly make new year resolutions. When asked, I generally have the generic answers of; ‘going to the gym more’, ‘eat better’, ‘lose some weight’ etc…

That’s not to say that these things won’t factor in my 2014, as I’m sure they will, but I’ve been doing these things for half of 2013 (and probably most years before that..)


So, 2014.

After turning 30, I think it’s time that my style changed/evolved. I feel that my style hasn’t really grown or changed. I dress the same now as I did in my early twenties. Comfortable yes, but maybe more mature/staple choices need to be made. Choices like smart coats, heels still aren’t my friends yet, so wedges. Just a more tailored, structured/comfortable me.
Now, having a near-toddler and being a stay at home mummy, this won’t be easy every day, but for the days that I do get to go out and be taken out, I’ll look better.

My second resolution may sound a weird one.

I hang my head in shame that up until 3 weeks ago, I hadn’t been to a dentist in nearly a year and a half. As it was pointed out to me at this visit, I really should have been taking advantage of the free dental care whilst pregnant and after the baby was born, but, I forgot! However, I’m now signed up to a local dentist to have regular check-ups, plus I’ve bought myself and my partner an electric toothbrush each, the Colgate ProClinical A1500 to help us on our way!

What are your new year resolutions, if any?

    Good luck in 2014! I am also hoping to changing my style. Sometimes I feel that I still look like a student and that's not really the way I want to be. I have the problem of looking very younger, which doesn't help!

      Thank you, you too hun!
      Yes, I have a similar problem with looking younger than my years. I say it's a problem, it is nice in certain circumstances, but annoying in other.. x

    I don't like to make resolutions per se but this year I hope to maintain my fitness level and sustain a healthy diet without "falling off the wagon" like I typically do. Hope you succeed in your goals too! 🙂

    xo, alison*elle

    I am with you on the fashion front I'm forever just throwing on jumpers and jeans just because it's easy, warm and comfortable! I must make more effort 🙂

    I;m terrified of the dentist… I left it ages between visits last time and I'm really due another visit but not sure I can force myself to go just yet!
