New Years Resolutions Update!

Back in January I wrote a post on my News Year Resolutions, which you can read here. If you haven't read the post here's a brief overview;

1. Be healthier
2. Learn to drive.
3. Spend more time with family.
4. Blog more.
5. Figure out what I want to do with my future.

We're a third of the way thorough the year (I know right?! It's crazy!). So I thought what better time to do an update on how well I am doing with them.

1. This one hasn't go that well, I mean we've definitely been having less takeouts but they've never really been my thing so that's not that big of a deal. Savoury foods are definitely my weakness, I could eat a billion packets of crisps or cheesy biscuits. I do think I'm snacking less though!

2. Okay, no process. I need to book me some lessons!

3. This one I feel as if I have made some process with. Nearly every weekend in April we spent with my boyfriends's family and I've spent most of the Easter hols at home with my family. It's been really nice to spend time with the people you care about.

4. Another fail, I managed to disappear from the world of blogging for a couple of months.

5. I've got my heart set on finishing this course, even if it kills me in the process! It may not be the most enjoyable experience but I want to have a degree.

As you can see I'm not doing all that great at achieving my resolutions. Lets hope my next update in August will show more progress!

My 20th Birthday!

On the 16th, I turned 20! I can't believe it, it seems it as if I had only just 19. From the croissants for breakfast to the pink fizz and cake late in the evening; it was a really lovely day, probably one of my best Birthdays I've ever had.

My boyfriend wrapped all my presents in Hello Kitty paper, with a Hello Kitty gift bag and balloon! Anyone who knows me knows my love of Hello Kitty and he did really well. He got me a stunning watch, a beautiful edition of A Little Princess (my favourite film growing up!). He also got me a ton of Soap and Glory things, and a Sally Hansen nail varnish in Kook-a-mango (because I love mango). He always gets the most thoughtful gifts.

From my parents I got the Instax mini 8 in raspberry and I am in love! I had asked for it so it wasn't really a surprise but I had no idea how much I would love it. There's just something about having a physical photo compared to just having it on Instagram. I can't wait to use it to document so many memories. My grandparents also got me some accessories for it; an adorable polka-dot case, extra film and an album to keep my pictures safe in.

My day consisted of visiting family, going out for lunch, wandering around town and getting a yummy iced cooler, dinner and then my giant cupcake Birthday cake. It really was the perfect way to spend the day!
