Hi guys, i just want to start off by saying that Christmas Day was my blog’s FIRST BIRTHDAY! Woo! So thankyou to anyone who has ever read my blog, follows me on social media and to all the lovely people who have given me such lovely comments! I really have loved this past year, i’ve had such cool oppurtunities and worked with some really cool brands and amazing people, it’s been a dream come true if i’m honest! (sorry to sound cliche)
Anyways, basically i wanted to write this post because i’ve been thinking alot recently about this past year, obviously with New Years having been and gone I was thinking a bit about resolutions and this new year, and I still am to be honest. It’s quite crazy that my new year’s resolutions of last year were to set up a blog, go to my first event, get out and meet some new people and i can honestly say i’ve done this and so much more!
It’s weird to think that a few months after i started my blog i remember saying ‘i would never do youtube, it’s just not my thing’ and what do you know.. 9 months later and i already have 15 videos on my channel that i have REALLY enjoyed filming! It’s so odd to me that i had the confidence to start doing that, and now it’s all i want to do! I think that’s why i’ve been slacking in the blog department a bit recently, i’m still trying to figure it all out!
Anyway, your probably just thinking i’m rambling on about random things for no good reason.. there is a point to this post..
Basically, what i’m trying to get at is that this year has shown me that you never know what’s round the corner.. I started 2015 with a blank website and have built up content throughout the year that i never thought i would be able to do last January. I started YouTube which is still quite crazy to me and I reached 15,000 followers on Instagram (so, so crazy!) There are also so many things in my personal life which have been amazing last year such as attending amazing festivals, visiting Brighton with my friends, turning 18 and so much more which when I look back, can’t believe all happened in one year!
Anyways, sorry to long this out… basically what i want to say is that for this year i don’t think i’m going to set any goals… i don’t want to pressure myself to take a particular route everyday, because too often than not i find myself changing my thought process everyday, as i said before.. you never know what’s round the corner.
All in all, for this year, it’s going to be quite a crazy one as i finish school completely, start Uni (moving to new CITY (I’ve always lived in the countryside) with completely new people who are currently strangers to me EEP), go on a girls holiday and also GET MY BRACES OFF! So with all of this going on, alot of things are going to change this year, it’s going to be very crazy and hectic, and basically.. i believe that with a bit more hard work, anything is possible this year! For next Christmas, i would love to look back on 2016 and think wow.. what a year!
On a side note… I want to talk a bit about my blog..
i love writing…i always have, however always hated English (strangely enough) along with art, i hated it, i was RUBBISH at it (believe me) however I’ve always had a creative strike in me. Funny eh?! i find myself delving into magazines, blogs, and even find myself staring at images that are different and eye catching.
i honestly love writing, i love talking about things i love and this is what i want my blog to be about in the new year. i want to talk about my loves, my hates, my fears.. and everything inbetween! I have found that with the pressure i’ve put on myself this past year between sixth form, growing my blog and creating content i kind of lost my passion for it a bit, that’s why towards the end i wasn’t posting much, as i didn’t want to create half-hearted posts! This new year, i’m going to be creating quality content, i want to LOVE writing, i want to feel EXCITED about going out to shoot an outfit- like i was at the beginning of last year! Being at such a young age i am definitely inspired by alot of things, i just want my blog to be a space to talk about things i love/hate/fear because i honestly LOVE talking on this level much more to people, so why not bring this to my blog?! I feel as though people keep ideas, thoughts and dreams to themselves all too often! I’m always rambling away to my friends and family about everything, literally!, so i thought why not write some of my thoughts down, and share them with whatever people may stumble across my weird and wonderful blog!? So this is my little resolution, i guess, for the new year.
I know it’s a bit late but I wish you all the best for 2016! If you work hard enough, anything is possible!!!!
What are some of your new year’s resolutions?
Lots of love, Emily xxx
