Happy New Year: New Years Resolutions

Happy new year 2015 written with Sparkling figures

I know I’m a bit late to the party (what with it being 6 days into the new year already…) but I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year I’d like to wish you all a very happy, healthy and successful 2015. I’m sure a lot of you have made your New Years resolutions already; I haven’t really given my resolutions much thought this year; rather things I’d like to do more/less of this year compared to last and places I’d like to go and things I’d like to do. I don’t buy into the whole, “New Year, New Me” fandango but I do believe that a new year is a perfect opportunity to start changing and shaping your life into how you want it. Here are a few of the goals I’ve set myself for 2015:

1) Read more!

Pretty weird one for a book blogger who should be reading all the time anyway right? Well last year I went on a 6 month blogging break and lost my reading mojo for a very long time because life just got in the way. I don’t want to lose it again, so this year I aim to read more books and read a different variety of books. I’ve started a 2015 Reading Challenge which I wrote about here that will hopefully help me do this!

2) Work harder

Again, due to my blogging break last year I felt like I was completely slacking in the blogging department – this year I want to start making much more of an effort again with my blog and so far, so good! I also want to continue putting everything I have into Neverland Blog Tours because since the little launch of my touring business last April, I am overwhelmed at how much support I’ve had. I love organising tours and hopefully this year I will see it expand even more!

3) Save up

I’m not too bad with saving money as it is but this year I really want to knuckle down on the saving front for future trips, holidays, work related things and hopefully to start saving for a flat in the not so distant future. This means a lot less hours will be spent on Boohoo and at the Chinese takeaway *sobs*.

4) Raise money for charity

Last year I completed a readathon where I read 17 books in a week and raised over £900 for Cancer Research – a charity close to my (and a lot of others peoples) heart at the time because a relative had just been diagnosed. This readathon was one of my biggest achievements last year and I’d love to do something like this again – however maybe not a readathon and maybe for a few different charities. I’ll get my thinking cap on!

There are lots of other things on my 2015 to-do list such as; be more organised, get another tattoo, start drumming again and re-decorate my room but those are the most important things that I’d like to achieve this year. 2014 was, to put it bluntly, rubbish for me but I have high hopes for a happy and fulfilling 2015!

What are your aims and goals for this year?



  1. These goals sound great… Sometimes it helps motivate me to do it when it’s written down in black and white 🙂

    1. Thanks Jenny 🙂 same here, I always feel better and more motivated writing stuff down. I think it’s just the act of writing it that does it!
