Hello. I hope you all had a lovely time celebrating new years! I can't believe January is here and we're into 2013. I don't really like making 'resolutions' I like to think of them as little life changes for the better. They're easier to stick to when there's no super strict rules to follow I find. So here's a few positive life changes I'm hoping to make throughout January.
1. Look after my skin a little bit more. I have been loving 'scrub your nose in it' by Soap & glory. It really cleans my pores and has a lovely fresh minty scent. If you leave a thin layer on it doubles up as a face mask too. Definitely recommend it if you suffer from oily skin and large pores. It didn't dry out my cheeks either!
2. Learn to bake properly. Daniel bought me this Hummingbird Bakery baking book as a Christmas gift after visiting a store in London and eating the most delicious cupcakes ever! I'm excited to (learn how to) bake from scratch and post more yummy baking posts in the future hopefully..
3. Read more books. I love books. I don't think I could ever get a Kindle. I know they're handy but I love the feel and smell of a real book (sad, I know.) I'm going to try and read a few chapters every night before bed if possible. Who am I kidding? I'm such a night owl lately I'll probably end up finishing a whole book.
4. Appreciate the little moments. I have this terrible habit of letting moments pass me by. Instead of enjoying them I will be too busy instagram-ing it or fumbling around with my camera trying to take a picture of it. So this year I'm going to try and enjoy moments for me, if I don't take the perfect picture it doesn't matter because I will have gotten to enjoy that moment for myself.
Are you setting any goals for yourself for 2013? Let me know :) I hope this year is full off happiness for you all.
