New Year Resolutions!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! I hope you all had an amazing change of years. I did! I celebrated it with my family (my father was home for the first time in 6 years). Also a few cousins and nieces came. It was one big cozy happening. My niece wants to be a hairdresser and she asked me if she could style my hair. You can see the result on the picture above. I love it so much! Her styling tools were so useful, I am thinking about purchasing a good styling iron. Let me know if you know any good ones!

Anywaysss.. let's get back to the purpose of this post before I keep on blabbering. In this post I will be telling you my (secret) new year resolutions! They are divided in my blog and personal ones and goals I really want to achieve this year. Do you recognize yourself in any of these? Let me know in the comments!

Blog
- I really need to plan my posts better. If you follow me for a while, you might already have recognized the fact that I post every other day at 21:00 (Amsterdam time). Sometimes I come back from school at 5 PM and I go and make my homework and at 8 PM I am like: WAIT. I should write a post! Hurry up! It's not just planning writing the posts but also planning when I will be filming a new video and when to take outfit photos, when to make my homework, when to do my other work, events and learning for tests. I suck at planning. I never stick to it. This will be my greatest challenge: time management.
- I would love to have a bunch of posts ready so I can write posts when I have the time. I started some time ago with having a lot of posts ready but soon I returned to the old pattern of writing a post every other day.
- I would love to get a better view on what my followers love and don't really like about my blog. I will be trying out some different posts and look at the amount of clicks it generates and how many comments, etc.
- I really want to meet a lot of bloggers and go to a lot of cool events! I always love this so much! It's amazing!
- Come up with a ton of fun DIYs! I love being creative but often I don't have a lot of time to sit and think about creating things. I would love to take some more time for this! 

Personal
- I think everybody has it on his/her list: eating healthier. I do not just talk about eating less candy and chocolate. When I have a free period in school, I often tend to go to the supermarket and buy food. I will try to reduce the amount of time I spend in that supermarket. Also, I eat a LOT. You won't say it but sometimes my father eats less than me, this is no good.
- Read more. I love reading books. Not just amusement books but also information books about, for example, marketing and trend forecasting. I started the year by buying two book sets which were on sale. I bought the Divergent series and the John Green collection. Hopefully this will help me to read!
- Be totally happy with all the things I have. Sometimes I tend to look a little more at the things I don't have. This brings in a lot of negative feelings. I would love to learn how to be satisfied with the things I do have.
- Take more photos with my friends. Previously I always took fun photos with friends but I haven't done that for a while. I love to be able to browse through some inspiring and nice photos!
- Live the YOLO life! I often hold back on things which are out of my range. I would love to make new friends and meet new people but I'm pretty shy. I want to gain more confidence and enjoy my life!

  10. Mooie voornemens! Ik wil dit jaar ook vaker DIYs gaan doen. Vorig jaar was dat het plan maar als het er dan eens van kwam, vergat ik telkens foto's te nemen of erover te schrijven.

  14. Gelukkig nieuwjaar! Je hebt ook mooie voornemens opgesteld. Het vooruit werken met artikelen wil ik ook weer gaan doen, want ik was daar een tijdje geleden ook zo goed mee bezig. Het gezonder eten wil ik ook gaan doen, maar dan wel op de manier van dat ik ook wil afvallen.
