NEW YEAR, NEW ME

Well it has certainly been an interesting and exciting past few weeks for me. I had a wonderful Christmas and my big sister got married - it was like a fairytale complete with Prince Charming and the castle. I was honoured to be one of her bridesmaids on what was to be an amazing day. My sister, Rachael looked absolutely stunning in her Justin Alexander wedding dress and I can't wait to see the pictures from the delightfully eccentric photographer.

Well I'm sure you're wondering if I am back to blogging for good? Well I would certainly like to be and I am certainly going to try, but when you write for other people's blogs and websites for a living, it can be hard to do it for yourself. It is a new year's resolution I hope not to break.

Another one that I hope to stick to is to make more use out of my wardrobe and to stop saving items of clothing for a special occasion that may never arrive. I have dozens of dresses that I never wear because I am wearing the same few pairs of jeans and few jumpers (I promise I do wash them from time to time).

Have any of you guys made any new year's resolutions and have you already broken them?

  8. YES! Definitely stop saving things for best and wear wear wear them, I came to that conclusion about ten years ago and haven't looked back.
