The journey starts now.

So some of you may have noticed that I’ve taken basically a month off blogging and off this website in general. This does not mean its over, far from it. After a rocky adjustment in to this year and a lot of planning about where my life will take me this year, I’m finally ready to start this process.

This journey starts now.

I thought I’d share with you just exactly what this journey will be, so you can keep up to date if you wish.

Let’s start with the major change that will be happening in my life this year, school. At the moment I am in my final year of further education. I’ve done compulsory school (GCSE’s) and my first year of A-Levels. In June of this year I will sit this years exams, there’s only 6 in total and they are all over in a matter of 4 weeks. From June 23rd I am officially finished with this and I have my Summer period until September. In early August my family will be holidaying in Norfolk, UK, not an out of country holiday this year but a more meaningful one to celebrate my last weeks living with my family full time. We’ve been to Norfolk many a time and I’m beyond excited to show you all the fun places we go when we’re there.

In September I will be going to University. This will either be Stirling University (if I obtain BBC grades in my exams) or York St. John if I don’t. I have been lucky enough to receive 2 conditional offers and 2 unconditional from my top choice universities and I am so happy that I can start a new beginning in a new city with new people come September.

Now let’s talk about this blog and where its going. I will be aiming to post every Tuesday and Thursday. I will continue to post about beauty, lifestyle and fashion but I also want to document the changes in my life within my diet, body, health/ fitness and obviously what I’m up to. So expect every post to be a little different. Also I will be posting every Saturday on mytrendingstories.com, the link to my profile will be at the bottom of this post.

Okay so my life has already changed this year for sure and I’m so excited to continue these changes. I’ve been out more, met up and rekindled friendships with old friends who I miss oh so much and as I type this, I’m reminiscing old memories with one of my old best friends who I haven’t talked to in years. I’ve had no drama, no fall outs, no arguments and I’m happier than ever! Also, I’ll be taking my drivers test in March, so if you’d like I could write a post about the experience of learning and what I did to pass my theory/ practical when I pass it.

Lastly, I want to discuss my physical changes happening this year. I’m finally committing to it, I’m gonna do it. I’m going to buy my fitness gear and get this show on the road. I don’t necessarily want to lose massive amounts of weight but I want to be at a point where I’m happy, healthy and confident in my body. This will be done with a big shift in my diet, which will be regularly documented on this blog (along with tips and recipes) and also with exercise which I will be working hard on this year. This will also be documented on here. In terms of my appearance, I’m working on developing a skin routine to share with you guys that really works (I think I’ve got one) as I know many people, including myself, struggle with acne and would prefer to get rid of it! I also want to change my hair in the summer, asI did with the ombre last summer, and I want to be more daring with a new wardrobe.

Time for change.

Where have I been? I know, I’m sorry.

After 24 days of daily blogging in December I was exhausted and I needed some time to myself. Sharing your life on the internet is hard and coming up with original content is even harder. I spent all of last year saying ‘2017 will be my year’ and ‘I’ll post so much more and work so much harder next year’. Truth is that never really happens, it clearly isn’t happening.

I needed some time to figure things out. Its 2017 which will for sure be the scariest year of my life and I haven’t really fathomed that its here already. So much is happening and changing this year in my life and I really want to document it, so I will but if I need some time off, I’ll have to take it.

We’re 18 days into this year and its already better than last year. I’ve been for nights out, caught up with old friends and I’m taking work step by step in order to not get overly stressed like I became last year. I still want to do this and I want to develop other social media platforms as well. This is a lot easier said than done and so this could be a slow process.

I now have all the fundamentals that I need in order to do what I want to do this year, next step is to make it happen, watch this space. I’m really excited but I also need to remind you as well as remind myself that the exams that I’m taking this year decide what happens with the rest of my life, so I can’t be engrossed with this business too much.

I will be posting on Friday if not tomorrow a hopefully more entertaining and longer post. I’m thinking a summary of my year so far, the fun, the hilarious and the plans I have for the future.

Till then,
