(Late) New Year’s Resolutions & 16 Things I’m Thankful For From 2016


(Late) New Year’s Resolutions & 16 Things I’m Thankful For From 2016

Hello lovely!

It’s been a while, huh? I meant to write this post around the time I uploaded the corresponding videos, but alas, life got in the way. I’m back at University now and have been busier that the busiest of bees. If you would like to watch my New Year’s Resolution video click here, and if you would like to watch my 2016 Recap video click here.

Here are the 16 things I’m thankful for from 2016:

  1. I discovered The Steamhouse – the best bagel shop I have ever been to. They are located in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. Check out their Instagram and Facebook: @thesteamhouse
  2. I started to wear more lipstick. Confidence, baby!
  3. I saw my family this year, for the first time since moving back to England!
  4. My dad and I enjoyed a father-daughter day at the American Speedfest at Brands Hatch.
  5. My friends came and visited me!
  6. I had the opportunity to vote for the first time in the EU Referendum.
  7. Nathan graduated university! I’m so proud of him <3
  8. Nathan and I moved into our first proper apartment together!
  9. I bought my first Macbook – my first laptop that’s completely mine.
  10. I’ve had the opportunity to spend a lot more time with my grandparents.
  11. I started university – even if it was a very stressful time!
  12. I sought medical help for my anxiety and depression – a very big step!
  13. Nathan and I celebrated our two year anniversary <3
  14. The Gilmore Girls Revival. ‘Nuff said.
  15. I started Just Call Me Ringo, something I’ve wanted to do for years 🙂
  16. Nathan and I celebrated our first proper Christmas together, just me and him.

Aaaaaaand, here are my New Year’s Resolutions for 2017 (let’s see if I stick to them!):

  • Learn to love every single aspect of my being, through whatever means necessary.
  • Take care of both my physical and mental health.
  • Learn to be okay with not always being okay.
  • Learn to say “no” and stop apologising. Do whatever I want simply because I want to.
  • Treat myself, just because I can.
  • Worry less, enjoy more.
  • Appreciate the beauty in the world.
  • Document everything.
  • Invest in friendship.
  • Do something crazy.
