My New Year’s Resolutions 2018

I know that for a lot of people New Year’s resolutions are a pretty cringe and pointless thing to do. I so disagree though. In fact I think you should make resolutions on the regular. Having goals and thinking about what you what and where you want to go are so important and there’s no shame in making positive changes. So in order to practice what I preach, here are my New Year’s resolutions for 2018!

To be more impulsive – I’ve stressed out over everything this year but the thing about stressing is that it’s totally pointless. I’m behind everyone my age in probably every way. I don’t have a house, car, baby or career path and I’m not ‘settled down’ (that phrase makes me want to be sick) or particularly going anywhere. I know that sounds a bit negative but I actually think it’s pretty liberating. This is the year I want to let go of worrying about what other people think and just concentrate on being happy, enjoying things and listening to my gut feeling. There’s been so many times where I’ve missed out on things I’ve wanted to do and I think now is the time to stop holding myself back.

To travel more – Growing up I used to travel all the time and that’s something in the last few years that I’ve really started miss. Yes I went to Poland, Amsterdam and 5 cities in the UK last year but I think I’m yearning for a little more adventure now. Not having any money has definitely had a lot to do with it but maybe it’s time I start setting some holiday money aside. It’s the best thing for clearing your mind and giving you some fresh inspiration.

To watch more movies – While at university I really got into films, especially ones from the 50s and 60s and in particular everything by Alfred Hitchcock. I used to spend ages trolling through films and discovering new ones and this is something I want to pick up again in 2018. There is so much creative inspiration to be found in a good movie!

To blog more – I’m still struggling to juggle my blog and my 9-5 job and this is something that’s been a problem since day one. I really want to get more of a routine down and start treating it like a job with some time set aside each week. My blog is really important to me and has really helped to distract me when I feel like I’m getting bogged down with anxiety. This little project has brought me so many good things and I can’t wait to see what 2018 holds for Style Rarebit.

I would love to know your resolutions too, pop them in the comments below for me to read! I hope you all have an amazing year and that you aren’t feeling too worse for wear after last night too…

New Year’s Resolutions 2017

Here we are folks, it’s 2017!! I feel so excited for this year, I’m not sure why, I just have a feeling that it’s going to be a good one.

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to achieve in these coming months and I think making resolutions is such a positive way to start. Why not set out to get what you want? and kick this coming year’s butt.

Resolution 1: Be more positive! Not gonna lie, I sometimes get a tad bit negative and it’s really not good for me, nor the people around me. This year I just want to focus on the good and be grateful for everything, the secret is real!

Resolution 2: Get strong I don’t feel at my best right now and I know that exercising is what my body really needs. I’m thinking of maybe signing up to a run or going to some classes to get me back on the right track. I always feel amazing after a workout and I got trainers for Christmas too, so no excuses!

Resolution 3: Grow StyleRarebit This blog is my favourite hobby ever but this year I want to push myself and grow it into something I can be really proud of. My main focus is creating better quality content and more of it. This is going to be my number one priority.

Resolution 4: Making Pyjamas I’ve been wanting to start a luxury pyjama line for about a year now and I’m still surrounded by toiles and fabrics. I’ll be starting small but I definitely want to have some pieces up online and be sewing more regularly by the end of this year.

Resolution 5: Do something out of the ordinary I really want to start doing a few things a year that are a bit more exciting and different. A zip wire is number one on my list but maybe trying some extreme sports or learning a new skill would be cool too.

I hope you liked these and that they inspired you to create your own. If you have any good ones please leave them in the comments below, I would love to hear what you have planned for 2017.

Happy New Year! x

  1. Be more organised and stop leaving everything till the last minute. This is a resolution I give myself every year.
  2. Stop being a trend w**re and start investing – No more filling my wardrobe with cheap quick fixes, quality items only.
  3. Stick to my running schedule – Same old story, less biscuits more moving.
  4. Work Hard – This year is all about getting my head down and achieving some major career goals.
  5. Read more, I love reading so there’s really no excuse. Knowledge is power!
  6. Enjoy the little things –  Sounds corny but it’s damn true… birds, coffee the sun all that hippy stuff.
