HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope everyone had fun last night whatever you got up to! 2015 has officially arrived: all shiny, fresh and new. I can’t believe its here already – it’s going to be such a big year for me. I’ll be taking my A2 exams in June/July, moving back to my old house and then (if it all goes to plan) I’ll be leaving home and heading off to university!
I’m not usually a big fan of New Years Resolutions but as I’m going into a new year with a new blog, now seems like a good time to make some goals – because it is that time of year…
1. Get organised
At the moment, Peppermint and Panda Eyes is a bit….random. So this year, I’ve bought myself a cute little diary for blogging: I’ll be writing down post ideas, scheduling posts, days to take photos, twitter chat times etc. to help me get organised. My current plan is to post every Thursday and Sunday – I’ve already planned all my posts for January, and some for February. Hopefully this will bring some order and regularity to the blog!
2. Be braver
Take the plunge. Throw caution to the wind. Jump in at the deep end. Push the boat out. Go for broke.
In other (non-metaphorical) words, I’m going to try and be braver in everything I do. I want to write more comments, tweet more people, be more experimental with my makeup, hair and fashion looks; get more variety into my posts – all that sort of thing. I mean, what’s the worst that could happen….
3. Post some fashion posts
While I obviously love beauty and makeup, my one true obsession in life is fashion. I’ve got offers to start studying Fashion Marketing at uni this year; Fashion Marketing/PR/Advertising is ultimately what I want to do with my life. I’m a big reader of fashion magazines and blogs, but the quality of the photos and outfits has always scared me off starting my own. But I’m being braver this year, so I’m planning to post a few OOTDs and that sort of thing, and just see how it goes!
So there they are: my 3 goals for 2015! Please feel free to comment on any 2015 Goal Posts (get it?) that you have, I’d love to read some!
Here’s to a fantastic new year, and all the excitement that brings! * raises mug of tea *
