2012

Happy New Year!! Can't believe it's 2012 already, last year seemed to whizz by so fast! I spent New Year's Eve with a cold, but at least I went into the new year laughing my head off as Brian and I were watching The Hangover Part 2. How was your New Year? 

My wardrobe has grown rapidly in the holiday season and I have so much to show to you! I treated myself to two pairs of Jeffrey Campbell's, luckily they were both on sale so didn't feel like I was spending too much money. And more shockingly, I have purchased not one, but two pair of jeans. For some reason, I grew out of any fondness for denim that was any longer than my knee, but now the fondness has been renewed in my new pairs! Though it has been rather weird wearing jeans again, my mum is pleased haha. I always look cold apparently. 

Around this time of year we are meant to have new year resolutions, but these always seem to be disregarded or just forgotten about. To be honest I've never really had a list of resolutions, so it seems only fitting that I at least attempt a list. Here are my goals for this year:

To save more money
 Try and limit my spending to only one or two items a month
 Get into drama school
 Go rock climbing
 Blog once a week
 Meet other bloggers
Travel more 
Do some DIY
Go to dance classes 
Learn Japanese properly, its getting embarrassing only knowing a few basics!

Haha not the most inventive list but hey, those are the things I want to do and I'm sure as the year goes on, my list will grow. Also something of note, this is my 100th POST! I love the fact that the first post of the year is also my 100th. Thank you to everyone who reads this blog, without you this blog wouldn't be here! You are all seriously wonderful and I hope you all have a great year :D

  9. I am on Twitter! I don't use it a lot, but I do use it some and get messages and stuff. My twitter name is lydiabird22. Sounds like a bad chat room name from the 90's.

    I love this sweater. The pom poms really make it. And your resolutions are way more interesting than mine-- rock climbing and brushing up on Japanese!!
