Seventeen Things To Achieve in 2017.

Monday, January 02, 2017
I feel like it's the natural thing to do when a new year comes around, reflect on the old and create goals for the new year ahead of us. So, here I am, doing exactly that. This year should (hopefully) be a pretty special one for me, I'm finishing university, I turn 21, so adulthood is finally here and new chapters in my life can begin. With that in mind, here are a few things - or 17 to be exact - I want to do in 2017...

1. Finish university on a high - I feel like I had to include this because it's definitely going to be a huge part of the year. I'm not going to graduate with a first class degree, and there's no shame in that, but I still want to do well!

2. Keep learning - Even though I'm finishing uni, that doesn't mean I can stop learning new skills. I would looove to do a course in interior design or photography as these are two things I adore and would love to know more of.

3. Save for a new car - I love my little car, I've had it for three years and as my first car it will always have a special place in my heart. When I get a full time job I will be driving a lot more than I am currently, so I would love to get some shiny new wheels!

4. Be more sure of myself - I always always doubt myself and my ability to do well or achieve something great. We're all hunan and I'm sure we've all been there! I would love to believe in myself more than I do.

5. Go somewhere new - I love to travel and I've been very lucky to able to go to many different countries with my parents when I was growing up. There's still a lot of places in Europe I want to explore with the bf. Amsterdam and Edinburgh are top of my list!

6. Be a better blogger - I've always loved my blog but I really want to take it more seriously and start branching out into other platforms. I've gotten a lot better at using Twitter to share my content, but I still have a long way to go. I would also love to start posting a lot more and introducing more diverse content.

7. Wear more lipstick - I have so many lipsticks and there are many more on my wish list, buuut I don't wear them half as much as I should. If I'm going out for the day I always forget to apply it but this year I'm determined to work my way through some I already have in my collection.

8. Walk more - A few years ago when I was at college I used to walk all the time and I felt great for it. Since being at university and having everything so close to me, I don't walk as much as I used to and I would love to get back into it. If I lived in LA, I feel like I would hike all the time and have the best legs ever...

9. Eat better - This is always on everyones list but it's something I really want to educate myself about this year. I don't eat terribly, but I could definitely put better foods into my body. There are loads of good cookbooks around these days which I'm really inspired by.

10. Invest in timeless pieces - Over the past few months I've been searching the internet for some pieces I would love to invest in for my wardrobe. Jeans are the top of my list and I would love to find a pair that fit me perfectly.

11. Build up my CV - After finishing university my aim is to get as much work experience as I can before looking for a full time job I can dig my teeth into. I would love to get some experience in either social media/advertising or PR.

12. Streamline my wardrobe - My style has changed so much over the past few years and I feel I really need a revamp. I know my style now, very simple, yet chic and there are so many pieces in my closet which just don't fit the bill. I would love to have a wardrobe I can mix and match and be totally happy with.

13. Up my hair game - I do nothing to my hair half the time and I would love to learn some more styles and maybe pick up a few hair tools to help me along the way. My hair is very straight and lifeless which is maybe why I've been so reluctant to pay it attention!

14. Redecorate my room - My room at home as been so neglected over the three years I've been at uni. It definitely needs a new lick of paint and a good clear out, god knows what lurking in the bottom of my wardrobes...

15. Cook more - I really want to get into cooking and also meal prepping. I want to dedicate my Sunday afternoons to cooking up some food for the following week, this way I can be sure I'm going to be consuming nourishing meals everyday.

14. Get up earlier - I am so not a morning person, I hate getting out of bed, but I need to push myself and try to get up earlier. Since last year I have made progress, but I still feel like I need to get up an hour earlier...I hope I can do that this year!

15. Try out a new cuisine - Food is such a huge part of my life, I eat out more than I probably should, but I love to indulge. This year I want to branch out and try some new foods. I would love to go to proper sushi restaurant, and also Lebanese is high on my list to try!

16. Perfect my smokey eye - For some reason, I'm crap at smokey eyes. Unless it involves less than two shadows, I can't seem to make it look nice. I'm going to watch so many tutorials this year and practice practice practice ready for next New Years Eve!

17. Make more cocktails - My dad and his girlfriend picked me up a nice cocktail mixer set for Christmas so I really want to put it to good use. I'm not a huge drinker, but a good cocktail never disappoints. I would love to get good at making my own!

What are your goals for 2017?
