Hello! Happy New Year. Whilst going through 2018 I was constantly thinking about this blog post and how I'm going to write it and what I want to say. 2018 has been one of the most amazing years of my life to date for many reasons, including the people I've met and the things I've accomplished. I wanted to take this time to talk about a few tips I have to make 2019 your year. With every year, you're constantly learning new things about yourself and this life is a learning experience for us all. I'm one of these people who take everything as it comes, I have no particular goals for 2019 but I'm excited to work hard and that's as much pressure as I'd like to put on myself right now, I think the fact that we've all got through another year is enough. Don't put pressure on yourself because we all do things at different paces and that's okay!

1. Have fun. It's important to take time to enjoy every moment and embrace things that happen. Some things are doom and gloom but everything happens for a reason and everything works out eventually. I've always lived by the saying 'everything happens for a reason' and I truly believe this. There are steps that life throws at you until you get into the place you want to be and it's just something that we all have to go through. Remember that you're not the only person going through anything, there's always someone you can talk to and remember that there is always a light at the end of every dark cloud.

2. Save save save. I want to make an entire blog post on this subject (if you'd like!) but I've always valued the money that I earn and it's good to have fun and I'm not saying don't buy the shoes you want or don't go to Nando's but think to yourself, do you actually need this? Could you do something cheaper? I did this through 2018 and I saved myself so much money and it's always there if you want to save up for a house, a new car or that top you've always wanted. Work hard and work towards something you've always wanted.

3. Take pictures. I am probably the worst person for this, I don't know about you but my 'Following' list on Instagram was full of 2018 memories when I woke up this morning and I always think that I take loads of pictures but in reality, I clearly don't and that's something I want to get better at, so I can update my scrapbook and remember things that have happened.

4. Take time for yourself. I've always been a campaigner for this one. It's so healthy to spend time on your own with your own thoughts, I know so many people that absolutely hate being on their own and always want to be with people. Take time to watch your favourite film, clean your room or just take a little walk with your earphones in.

5. Surround yourself with the best people. I'm going to say it here first, if you find that someone in your life is toxic or unhealthy for you then get rid of them. This life is way too short to be wasting your time surrounded by people that you don't want to be around. It's not selfish, do it for you.

So there we are! I hope 2019 brings you all the happiness in the world and I'm so excited to see what 2019 brings me and you. I wish you all a very happy new year. I want to say a massive thank you for all of your continued support throughout 2018 - it means the absolute world to me!



For me, getting someone a gift that doesn't just look luxurious but something that is actually so practical is the way to go and I hav...
