Three Cheers For A New Year, Goodbye 2020.



Wow, what a shit show this year has been...and I certainly can't wait to see the back of it. 

Actually, maybe I'm being a little too rash, 2020 hasn't been all *that* bad. Earlier in the year I shared reasons why I'm grateful for 2020 and in all seriousness, those points are still valid, let's call this year an experience if anything at all.

Actually I don't think I'm making much sense here at all, but this year has been a weird one for us all and the last few months have certainly been the most challenging for me - the most rewarding but also, pals I'm so exhausted. 

Rather than bore you with the details of my struggles of this year, I want to thank the year for the good things it's given me; time with family, strengthening relationships with my family, boyfriend and my best friends. I've been finally secured a digital marketing job {y'all know how much this one means to me} and I've been able to express myself more creatively and to really find my feet when it comes to what I want to share online.

And with those cheers to the last year, out the way, I want to share some of the aspirations I have for the new year... 

And with those cheers to the last year out of the way, 2020 also saw some new beginnings for me and with that means lots of new opportunities will be available to me moving forward and to celebrate all that, I wanted to share with you some of the things that have me cheering for the new year... 


First on my list for things to accomplish in the new year is to simply relax. Since the end of September I’ve been working non-stop, 7 days a week with very little time off - {time off in November was only possible due to lockdown 2.0, so thank for that one Boris}. That being said, I’m hoping to spend the majority of my weekends in January finding the time to switch off from work, from my content and just taking the time to reset from the hectic year that was 2020. 


I know I've already eluded to this, however after years of searching, I can finally say that ya gurl got a job within digital marketing & surprisingly during the pandemic too, so yay! With that, in the new year I want to make sure I’m putting my all into my studies to become the best digital marketer I can be. My job is actually an apprenticeship so I've been training on the job, I meet virtually with my college assessor once a month and already I’m receiving great feedback {from my management, work colleagues and my college assessor} - and although I’m quite chilled about this, I want to know I’ve really focused myself into my study time and when I finally pass my course in 2022, I’ll know it’s been worthwhile. 


This has been tough during the last three months but by some miracle I’ve still been able to achieve it - but I can’t wait to make 2021, the year that my content really thrives. I've been quite lucky to have such a supportive following and god I'm sure you've witnessed my struggles over the years, the writers block, the inability to be on top of my photography and completely loose my love for content creating entirely. That being said, you’ve also watched me find my love for this corner of the internet again - and honestly? I have the last 12 months to thank for it! While it's been a bloody rollercoaster, my god my content has certainly benefited from it. 

In the new year I want to focus my attention on meeting with more creators, continuing to develop my photography skills and to continue sharing my famous flat-lays, being able to share more of my fashion & style posts and having the opportunities to work with more brands, oh I can not wait. 


Okay, this ones a stretch! But I’d love to be in the process of purchasing our first home - both J & I have been dealt some really shitty hands when it comes to careers & job roles over the years & I seriously can’t wait for the day we’re in a stable enough position that we’ll be able to put down a deposit on our first home and if by some miracle we're closer to this dream becoming a reality, that'll make next year one for the memories.  

...PS. Yes, I’ve already mentally decorated our bedroom, living room and omg, I’ve even started shopping for our kitchen utensils - not really, but I’m really fucking close. 


After the year we've experienced, honestly all I really want is to be happy. Cliche & cringe, I know...But some times it's the simple things in life that make the world of different to our mental health. This year has been filled with many rubbish things but it's really helped cleanse my mind from the toxic relationships, from constantly questioning my next move and to even comparing myself to everyone around me. I want to continue focusing on myself and the health relationships around me, knowing that I'm on my own journey to achieving things and sometimes we're so wrapped up in the comparison game that we forget to take a minute to enjoy what we've actually got. 

Thanks to Daisy London for my beautiful necklace which I've made a staple piece to my everyday routine over the last few months! Being able to experiment even with someone as simple as my jewellery has really given me such a confidence boost throughout this year and I can't wait to see how I can continue this in the new year. 

What are your three cheers for this year? 
What are you most looking forward to for the new year? ...Tell me in the comment, I'd love to know x
