Hello 2018 - New Years resolutions!

Well hello to you my reader chums and hello 2018! 2017 was one of my favourite years yet, packed with the most special moments, experiences and new adventures that I've featured on my yearly highlights post. Every year, I like to set a few goals and today I wanted to share with you my resolutions for 2018.

1. Have a little more me time and self care- In 2018, I want to take more time out to focus on myself and my mental health. For instance, to have more evenings where I just fully unwind with a book and bath, going on walks in the fresh air and pampering myself a little more. Even though 2017 was incredible, I was super busy a lot of the time, that I didn't have much downtime to truly relax, which left me feeling very stressed. That, this year by taking more me time, I'm hoping I won't get stressed by the little things life brings.

2. Cook more - I'm a big fan of cooking and baking but I don't really make the time for doing it on a regular basis. I'd love to cook more dishes from scratch and try out loads of new recipes this year, growing my skills in the kitchen. I see many lovely bloggers and vloggers cooking up a storm that it's got me all inspired to work with different flavours and create new dishes.

3. Live a healthier day to day life - Every year I always say, I'm going to eat healthier and be fitter, however I never fully stick to it once the first few months of the year pass. My aim this year, is to make healthier choices rather than diet. For instance choose not to have a glass or wine at dinner or pick a banana instead of sugary snack on my work break. That plus getting back into an exercise routine, whether that's a home workout or regular brisk walks.

4. Continue to visit new places - Travelling is one of my favourite hobbies and I adore exploring new locations. As I was lucky enough to visit a fair few new countries in 2017, I'd love to continue that this year. There's so much of the world to see and I can't wait to tick country off my list one by one. 

5. Be a little more spontaneous - As much as I'm a big fan or random adventures or taking the day as it comes, this year I want to put it in place more. I always like to have weekends booked up with plans or ensure I'm seeing these people this week or those the next that I forget to let life just take its course and experience a little spontaneity. Whether that's flipping a coin to decide where to go that day or just driving somewhere to see where you end up. Life is about adventure.

I hope you enjoyed this post. What are your goals for 2018?
