Happy New Year everyone! Oddly it doesn't actually feel like a new year for me and I feel like the year was only just getting started halfway through 2014 so instead of starting afresh I'm picking up where I left of. 2013 was a very big year for me (I graduated, got my first graduate job as a journalist, started a relationship and my blog was shortlisted for the Cosmo Blog Awards) so when 2014 came around last year I thought it would be pretty hard to top it. Nevertheless it was successful and I made some accomplishments! Mainly joining a gym and actually going, progressing at work and feeling a lot more confident in my role, continuing my blog, going on a wonderful holiday and taking better care of my money.

So, I have set myself a few New Year's Resolutions for 2015...
- Get more sleep - I am guilty of being exhausted in the day but, instead of going to bed early just staying up on my laptop and feeling awful the next morning! A good night's sleep makes for good looking skin the next day.
- Clear out my make-up bag and wardrobe - If anything is starting to look a bit worse for year I am going to chuck it out and start afresh. Some of my products have been festering in my bag for well over a year.... clumpy mascara, ew. My wardrobe is also brimming to the seam so I need to be ruthless.
- Read more books - This sort of links to the first resolution as I like to read before bed to help me drift off, but I rarely read anymore and want to get back into it.
- Be healthier and do more outdoor running - In 2014 I enjoyed going to group fitness classes at the gym and I am going to try and increase these this year but I also want to improve my running too. I love to get out in the fresh air and have been enjoying going to parkrun (A free weekly 5k event) so I am going to keep this up too!
What have been some of your accomplishments in 2014? Have you set any New Year's resolutions?..
