I vowed not to make New Year's resolutions this year because I never manage to keep them, either because they are pointless or unattainable at this point in my life. I mean I'm all for shooting for the stars but you need to know how to get there too! Instead of struggling through on my own, this year I am joining Team BBJ: body, blog and job. The lovely Amy came up with this and I think it is such a good idea! Rather than failing to keep my resolutions, I will have the support of a growing list of lovely ladies who you can follow HERE.
I am proud of what I managed to achieve in 2010. Although my health wasn't very good, I got consistently good grades and my lectures were really positive, which is super encouraging when dissertation deadlines and finals are looming! If I work just a little bit harder, I think I could get a first so that's my aim this academic year! I have challenged myself this year and as a result I think I know what I want to do in my career, which can only be a good thing, right? In myself though, I also feel a lot happier, I am willing to experiment with my style- I never thought I would be wearing a maxi skirt for one!- and I am a lot happier with the way I look. I think this is mainly through this blog so thank you guys <3
BLOG: This year I would love to expand my writing portfolio and also be more organised, especially with scheduling posts! There are obviously going to be times when I can't post as much as I would like so instead of stressing about it, I will have some back up posts for you guys. I also want to expand my writing portfolio and also try my hand at dress-making so if you guys have any tips or suggestions, they will be greatly welcomed!
BODY: I have been watching what I eat recently and going to the gym more so I don't want to lose any weight but just tone up my arms and make sure that I am as active as possible. In addition to this, I am determined to only wear clothes and outfits that make me feel a little 'fizzy'. Now I don't mean ready to pop ;) but rather clothes that make me smile and feel great and this starts with wearing underwear that fits. Now this may sound odd but apparently 465% of women wear the wrong size bra (I may have exaggerated slightly here...) and I'm not going to be one of them... Never have basics been so luxurious...

I wore it with my nude shoes which I have had for years and can't bear to replace as they are the perfect nude colour for my pale [and interesting] skin and a bag I bought at the Clothes Show. This bag is surprisingly roomy and I manage to cart around all of my junk in it too- WIN!

I really don't know what was happening with my hair, it just WOULD NOT behave and looked like a bad wig in the majority of the photos we took...
I was really disappointed as how I felt in this dress just didn't come across in the photos. I don't know why it didn't photograph well but I'm sure I'll be wearing it again soon as it's my favourite dress at the moment! This is no mean feat as I have LOTS of dresses to choose from in my ever expanding wardrobe. Speaking of which, I am having a clear out and have started to list some of the pieces here, so if you're looking for a bargain then why not have a rummage and help a fellow blogger?!
