I do because we get to focus on stuff we want to change or improve, it’s gives us the chance to start again almost.
But with the same token though I don’t like it because it’s the pressure to do this. It’s like just because it’s New Years doesn’t mean we HAVE to alter anything right?
But we should all have goals to aspire to and help us to keep going!
My goals of 2019
Fitness – get to where I want to be. I want to look in the mirror and feel great.
Debt – clear this completely (I have a very account and an overdraft that needs sorting)
Saving – whether this is for a mortgage or to go places.
Job – be content with my job. There’s moments in my life where I really feel I should be working in fashion not with children.
Lips – reduce the amount of times I go for fillers
Blog – write more? Easier said than done
Regarding my blog I will try writing more however I have had writers block for a while recently. Always feeling like I have nothing good to write about, forgetting what I was doing the blog for. It’s my escape from the real world and lets me release my enjoyment for fashion. Fashion is my hobby, I wish it was my job but it’s not. So for me my Instagram and blogging is the only way to show and express my love for clothing and all things Topshop lol.
So with my blog I’ve decided to separate my posts into 3 categories. TRAVEL, FASHION, LIFESTYLE.
With TRAVEL you can expect to see where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to. Don’t get me wrong I won’t post things like going to Asda or going to meal with friends because there wouldn’t be much content. It will be more for city breaks and long stays. With FASHION you can expect my recent buys or my new fave items which I might do weekly tbf with Topshop especially (I need shares in Topshop I swear). Finally from LIFESTYLE you will get little blogs about things happening in my life, negative or positive, (little catch ups if you like).
Another goal I should have put on there is finding the balance. I have been very stressed the past couple of months (think thats why my acne has come back) because I felt overwhelemed with everything. With everything being my job – paperwork side to it and not having the time, my fitness – going either circuit training or gym, seeing friends, family and boyfriend – not being able to dedicate the time to them because of planning for work or gym. It was never ending and I was always upsetting someone or myself. It’s not a healthy lifestyle I now know so I’ve luckily made some changes.
With work I will now choose one day to do my planning for the whole month. With the gym and circuit I will do these every week but if there is a social/family event on then of course I will go and cancel gym/circuit and not feel bad about it! Its okay to miss out and won’t suddenly make me gain weight. Finally to myself I need to make sure I get some time out sometimes where I just chill. I will definitely be doing that this month due to being on the poorer side of life after Christmas!
God help adam, I’m a nightmare when I have to stay in hahaha
Honestly haven’t felt the urge to write anything in a while, my minds been elsewhere.
However I have today. I’m a bit miffed off ngl.
So it started when I ordered some Topshop straight leg jeans in blue (so nice). I’ve already got the size 12 you see and they’ve become a bit loose now and you know when you want jeans to be tight and give you a bit of a bum. Well these don’t do anything for me hence why they are now on my Depop!
So as anyone would think, I ordered the size down right? I ordered size 10. And oh my they would not button up!!! Like I genuinely don’t get it?
But what I have been noticing is the labels have all changed in Topshop haven’t they like they’ve had a refurb if you like. So comparing the two jeans together they are different in that sense. SO basically I’m wondering like is this new label meaning they have altered their designs and sizes?
Because can I just point out today I bought some corduroy black Joni jeans in a size 14!!! I mean nothing wrong with being this size however since I’ve lost weight I haven’t bought a size 14 in months! So again this has confused and annoyed me!
I know I’ve eaten a fair bit of crap this Christmas week but I’ve surely not gone up a size.
I’ve researched it and haven’t found anything but I wonder if anyone else is having the same problem?
Rant over. I love Topshop and will continue to shop there but it’s not a confidence boost really is it haha!
As if my last blog post was in May like that’s ages away!! I guess having a full time job and regularly going gym/circuit training I literally have 0 time spare.
Let’s start with my job! So in February I started my new job as a nursery nurse looking after preschool children (Ages 3-4) and in August they offered me a promotion to be Preschool Room Leader at one of their smaller settings! I was thrilled and said yes! I’m so glad I did take it because I genuinely love it here! I’m definitely working my hardest and it’s brill. I’m so happy to have slight pay rise too I mean when you shop at Topshop all the time there’s only so much you can buy before your money quickly runs out ha!
Which reminds me I’m so overdue a Topshop shopping spree! I love A/W clothing so I cannot wait to start getting some bits!! Bring on payday ha!
So onto me and my weight loss. I’m 5lbs away from 2 stone! I mean 2 stone sounds a lot doesn’t it and it is but like I didn’t even think I had that much to lose if you know what I mean! My goal is to fit into size 10 Jeans, I’m currently size 12 which is way better than my previous 16! I’m currently doing gym twice a week where I focus on running and then I do circuit training twice a week. I tend to eat fairly good mon-fri and then overload with crap on the weekends haha!
Lip fillers – Thought I may as-well update you! I have been having them done since March but they were not getting any bigger so just before my holiday in August I decided to try someone new and I’m so glad I did! It’s cheaper and more filler so win win. I did not have them done this month because I was trying to pay off some of my credit card (yes I have debts lol) and I feel like they have gone down slightly idk maybe it’s just me hah. I’m still not at the size I want so hopefully with this new woman I will get there quicker!
Me and Adam are still going strong, he does my nut in occasionally but that’s love right? 3 years in May since we’ve been together so I’ll expecting the engagement ring soon hahaha
We moved back to both our parents’ in December last year and was meant to save for a mortgage but we haven’t at all lol! We’ve just spent and spent so god knows when we will move out! At the moment it’s nice just seeing other a few times a week and going out (bit like the honeymoon period again kinda)
I think that’s it for now you know! My life in a nutshell really lol
Oh actually Shout out to my besties who have gone travelling for like 23 days and I miss them lots! So jealous xx
On payday I’ll be hitting the shops so I’ll more than likely do a post about my buys from Topshop for A/W, eeeek!!
How fab has this weather been? And it looks like it sets to stay like this for the coming week and bank holiday weekend!! (Well hope I haven’t jinxed it now)
So this weekend has consisted of a family picnic on Sunday followed by a delightful curry on the night. Then Saturday was a beer garden and TGI’s yum yum.
My outfit for sat was this fab dress from ASDA at only £12.50!
I did get try get some proper pics of me with it on but I hated the photos! My hair was a mess and I hadn’t put any makeup on haha. I could have sized down in this dress actually as it isn’t as fitted as I’d hoped so bare that in mind if you do go buy it. But it is a lovely dress and so cheap.
Sunday’s outfit was better, my fave outfit so far this year I think. The ‘shacket’ from Topshop is just the best item in my wardrobe rn.
Thought I’d start trying to document my outfits that I wear on the weekends and include links incase any of you want to purchase them :-))
Saturday – me and ad had a Nando’s date, some drinks at our fave beer garden and popped to my sisters to see my gorgeous nephews! My outfit for the day was comfy and cas. This blazer is my new fave item!
