Happy New Year 2019

Happy New Year everyone. It's my first blog post of 2019, can you believe it? I feel like 2018 flew by, but I'm excited to see what 2019 has in store for me. I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday week.

Since last year's resolutions post did so well, I thought I would give it a try again for 2019. Even though, I did not quite follow through as much as I wanted to last year, I still think that putting my resolutions in writing anywhere is always worth it. I chose to write them on my blog, since I'm literally on it every single day.  

Looking back at last year's New Year's Resolutions blog post, I realize how much I let myself down. 

1. For the first 2 months, I really stuck with maintaining a bullet journal, which is a source keeping tabs of my daily activities. Unfortunately I decided to stop. It was too time consuming to invest in every day.
2.  I wasn't as consistent with going to the gym, as I was in 2017, after I came back from my vacation in July 2018. 
3. I'm proud of myself a little bit for dyeing the ends of my hair a reddish colour at the beginning of the year. One of my many resolutions going into 2018.
4.  I am proud to say my Instagram account, as well as my blog, saw consistent growth from an audience perspective for most of 2018.  Unfortunately with the new algorithm implemented later in the year (2018), both of my platforms saw a dip in terms of activity. 
5.  My Skin Care Routine is not perfected yet, but has definitely improved over past year. With the addition of The Body Shop Chinese Ginseng & Rice exfoliator face mask, the unevenness in my skin has improved.  
6. Another resolution of mine was to stop overthinking, but honestly I don't think that I can do that. It's in my DNA and I can't really help it. Once something goes wrong, my mind blocks off all good things and keeps producing thoughts of negative possibilities. 

Over the year, I also got the opportunity to work with some amazing brands such as The Body Shop, Febreze, iDealOfSweden, and MyMakeupBrushSet.
I also bought my very own camera and tripod, which I'm totally ecstatic to learn more about.

Anyway, enough about 2018, let's move on to 2019 New Year's Resolutions!
These are mine but hey if it works for you as well, go ahead and snatch them :)

1. Work out more, if not at the gym, at home. Drink more water, less fizzy drinks and cut it down to 1 coffee/day.  Eat healthier.

2. Be more involved with my followers with Instagram Stories. 

3. Use my camera and tripod to take my own photos. Be more proactive and creative. Find what works the best and use it.

4. In an attempt to remain fresh and new with my future content, I will continue to develop my style in clothing, apply new colours to my outfit and make up posts, and discuss new patterns, and textures. I have a great passion for a vast array of different styles and fashions and concepts that exist, and I will look to convey all my opinions to my reading and viewing audience.

5. Create and follow an editorial calendar. Follow schedule to be more consistent with blog posts. (aiming for at least 1 blog post/week). Upgrade blog with new features.

6. Start my YouTube Channel, and create 1 minute video content for Instagram.

7. Travel and explore as much as possible.

8. Spend more time with my family, and friends. Make new memories and capture them with my camera.
