Happy New Year 2015 and random thoughts

Happy New Year everyone! 2014 was a year of changes for me, and 2015 will be a year of new beginnings 🙂 I was stuck in a crappy job and decided to quit once I found out I was pregnant. It was the BEST DECISION EVER. That job was literally hazardous to my health and since I left the job, I was never sick once. Most of 2014 was spent being pregnant (haha!) and while the pregnancy was more difficult than I liked, I got to rest and spend quality time with my family without work related stress. I picked up cooking and baking, and never did I realise how relaxing it makes me feel. Also, it’s awesome when baked goodies are appreciated. Our family of 4 is now a family of 5 with the arrival of Ashton in November, and he is now 6 weeks old. So what does 2015 bring?


010115 Happy New Year_00001

I’m not sure where I’m taking the blog because it’s tough juggling 2 young children and a newborn AND a blog. However, I promise you I will try to continue to post. I’m targeting once or twice a week at least, and if I can create more content, then you’ll get more. My main focus for this year is to take care of myself. I’ve been a little too indulgent in recent years and the expanding waist line shows. I also have a weak back, and a heavy body isn’t good for my knees either. I’m going to get my health and strength back. This year will be a journey to a better and stronger body. I’m going to take it one step at a time but one year should be long enough to see significant changes. If you’re interested in my progress or what I do, let me know. Perhaps I can share once I see some results? Or maybe it can be a journey I share with you as I go along, the ups and downs, the fails and the little victories? I don’t know. What do you think?

Also, I was wondering if I should pay more attention to short form blogging through Instagram. A lot of you liked my lip swatches from #30daysoflipstick and I was wondering if I should do more of these? Very brief product reviews, product swatches, things I’ve been using, etc. and if you want more in depth reviews, you can read it here. Just a thought.

I don’t have any new year resolutions except for that one goal to a stronger body. Perhaps that one track mind will make me more focused and more motivated. The blog will go on, but if I suddenly go missing for a while, it’s very likely due to lack of sleep and time, hence my brain is not functioning properly. So give me a kick in the butt on Twitter, to rev up my blogging engine, and I’ll be back.

I wish you guys a great new year, and may 2015 be kick ass!
