2018 new year's resolutions ♥

So 2017 was a pretty big year for spending time with my friends and family. I have such lovely memories with Ollie and I still can't believe how quickly 2017 whizzed past. This time last year I was in Australia with Ollie and his family in the hot Christmas sun and today I am currently typing away in the cold, drizzly London weather. Don't get me wrong, I am very excited for the New Year and 2017 has been a big stepping stone for me. I finally started my Youtube channel and this has been a goal for years and I am really proud of myself for taking the jump. 
I will write a blog post about this separately but starting Youtube is one of the best decisions I have made in a very long time. Not only is it helping improve my confidence but I love sharing my beauty and fashion tips and expanding Fairytale Kiss. 2017 marked my second year being with Ollie, I can't explain how supportive he has been, with my blog and life in general. I don't think I would have the confidence and business mind set if it wasn't for him. He has booked Paris for my birthday in May so I am really looking forward to 2018 already. Although in 2018 I want to really focus on saving and cutting down on my shopping.
On the blog side of things, I still need to work on my flat lays. I constantly struggle with this but in 2018 I am going to try and improve how I take photos. I think I have stepped up my outfit photos and I am really proud of the looks I've created in 2017. I have been lucky enough to collaborate with amazing brands like PANDORA, Eylure, Luxe Link and itsu, to name a few and I have given Fairytale Kiss a blog make-over this year and I am really happy with it. I need to learn HTML coding again but I am really proud with how I am growing Fairytale Kiss. I would love to work with more beauty and fashion brands in 2018 and also get back to writing film reviews. 
Yesterday I spent quite a while reflecting back on 2017 and I am very thankful that I am healthy and far from my 2014 heart surgery experience. Although having heart surgery at 24 was pretty surreal and a struggle to battle through, I feel like I appreciate things even more now. Life is too short to spend time around negative people and negative energy and I used to think that it didn't make a difference but 2017 has shown me how incredibly important it is to surround yourself with people that inspire you, support you and I couldn't be happier than I am right now.
For 2018 I have made a brand new set of goals, from fitting in small work outs at home to practising Spanish everyday, even if its just for 15 minutes. I work best when I have a strict routine because otherwise I procrastinate until the cows come home. I am really excited for the new year and I want to keep Fairytale Kiss on this path. I am writing about brands I love and I believe I have always stayed true to that. Blogging has been a big part of my life and I have always loved doing it, I think it is time to push myself on Youtube and see where this path takes me. I am very excited to work hard and I am feeling very inspired right now. What are your goals for 2018? ♥
