New Year, New Me?

It is crazy to think that we are already a few days into 2017 and with 2016 officially behind us all I have high hopes for the year ahead. With surprising unrealistic plans to further myself in almost every aspect of my life, I walk into this year with a positive attitude.

I am not normally the type to make new years resolutions, as I tend to be the kind of person who forgets I made them within a few months. But this year with high hopes to improve myself I thought why not make goals rather than resolutions, they may be very similar ideas but I think pressures surrounding the two are very different. A goal is something to strive for making conscious decisions each step of the way towards achieving the said goal, even if you do not achieve the goal, the small steps towards it still give a sense of accomplishment. A resolution on the other hand carries so much pressure, more of a pass or fail type vibe to it, not really the type of this I am after.

It has taken me a while to write this post as I have been battling with myself as to what type of goals I want to set for myself. Do I challenge myself? or set more realistically achievable goals? I have finally come to the conclusion of why not both?! I am hoping that by documenting them here on my messy little journal ill take more of a conscious effort in working towards the end result.

So I do not babble on too much here are my goals for 2017!

  1. Make at least two blog posts a week. A commitment to this blog is reflective of my commitment to achieving my career goals.
  2. Expand my cooking horizons. With a current repertoire of two meals, I think it is time for a bit more variety.
  3. Keep a tidy space. A messy bedroom can cause a lot of stress, hopefully in minimising the mess I can minimise the stress!
  4. Improve my grade average. I have always strived for the best marks possible and with my first year of university under my belt its time to step up the game.

If you have made resolutions or goals in this year like me I wish you the best of luck!

Yours Truly,

Welcome to my messy little journal

I’ve always felt that blogs were meant for those who had something to say or some fabulous talent to present to the world. However, i’ve never really felt like I was someone who reached those qualifications until recently in my life.

While researching where I want to go with the next stage of my life I stumbled upon the perfect goal for me. As someone currently studying Communication at university I didn’t really have a set career in mind, I had areas of interest of course! but nothing that I ever felt talented enough for. It wasn’t until mid 2016 that I realised that my interest in both Fashion and Writing should be something I genuinely try to pursue, and what place is more perfect for fashion and writing than British Vogue! One might say this is a far fetched dream for a small kiwi girl like me, a thought that I myself once had not too long ago but I’ve always loved writing and fashion with my mother telling me that when I was a toddler I would actually cry if I didn’t like the outfit she chose for me. I guess I loved looking good from a young age.

Now please don’t get me wrong I may have always had an interest in fashion but my ability to actually carry it out seems to fail miserably on a regular basis. After numerous unfortunate phases and at the tender age of 19 I think I am finally starting to find my style and I guess with this blog that will continue to develop and grow which is really exciting.

With such a large goal set in my sights I thought what better way to grow, learn and gain confidence than to create a blog where I can write and create for an audience as well as for myself. I hope this blog will include a range of things from photography to reviews to stories from yours truely. But please promise me you will never expect anything to be organised, even my writing structure, I am a strong believer of tangents if you find yourself in one I recommend you follow it.

Yours truly,
