I'm a little late on the new year resolutions post, I'll admit, but to be honest I never properly thought about my resolutions and now realize that that's a bit rubbish and not very fun at all! So my NY promises start today. (Promise!) I am determined to make 2013 a great year and I'm going to do everything I can to make that come true!

1. Stop worrying about what others think and to put myself first.

I must admit I'm getting slightly better at this! I've always been quite a scared person who doesn't dare tell someone if I'm not happy about something and I won't voice my opinion. I don't know what it is that's helping, maybe it's just growing up, but I'm getting over this a little and I'm a lot happier for doing so. :)

2. Make a lot of memories with friends and take a lot more pictures.

I have a small group of best friends who really do make me so happy. (Soppy I know!) We've grown up together and stayed strong and even though we don't see each other every week, it's still as fun every time we do meet up. Lately, with working a lot, I find that I don't make enough time for my friends, always using the excuse of 'I'm so tired'. Well, I do not want to get any older and look back and think 'why was I always wining about being tired all the time and missed out on so many things?!' That's not the best way to make memories is it?! So I plan to make a lot more time with them and take more pictures of making memories with my friends and the things that make me happy.

3. Save up so I can do the things I love.

I hate missing out on things cos I'm skint or not being able to buy all the lovely things I so desperately want, but that's the fantastic life of a student for you! I am going to stop spending so much money on pointless things though, so I can save for things I really want. I've decided I'm going to make my own very pretty money jar soon to motivate me, after seeing this idea on other blogs. Hope it works!

4. Of course, eat healthier.

Yawn, I know, everyone has the same resolution and I'm not going to blab on about my new amazing diet plan, cos let's face it, I'll more than likely be back to normal in a week and be stuffing my face with chocolate (very motivated aren't I?!) I'm not going to stop having the things I enjoy, but maybe just not be as naughty when it comes to sweets and treats. I have the sweetest of sweet tooth's so it won't be easy!

Oh and of course my biggest resolution of all..
keep up with blogging and create lot's of lovely posts :)
