Everyone tends to feel that January pressure to get back to whatever shape they were in before Christmas came around to tempt us all with endless amounts of chocolates, Christmas dinner, party food and alcohol. I’m no different.
I'm really into my fantasy novels lately, luckily I seem to be finding genuinely enjoyable books that are worth a read (so far, touch wood). After seeing this book continuously throughout the Twittersphere and Goodreads lists, I decided to give it a go.
Nights out tend to be the same with no one night standing out from the rest. So after being included in an eventful night out that I enjoyed immensely, I thought it was worth sharing. Recently my sister turned 18 and as it’s a big birthday, we decided to do something slightly different. I’d heard about cocktail making classes before where hen do’s, birthday parties and girls nights out spend their time learning how to make their favourite cocktail as an alternative form of pre-drinking in preparation for a night out. But never before had I experienced one of these classes myself, so I went into the event with little expectations.
I cannot tell you how much I love a good calendar. I've never been a particular enthusiast of the new year hype, but there's something to be said of preparing for a fresh year. One that's been untouched by frustration, questions about the future, career highs and lows as well as personal achievements or dilemmas. In a way it signifies a whole new start and the next chapter in our life. This is why even if I'm not feeling the new year excitement, a new calendar always gives me the much needed motivation to truly begin the next year.
I had seen this book countless times in different Goodreads lists and on bookshelves in stores, but it wasn’t until I was at Waterstones with my friends that I really took an interest and had the urge to start reading it right away.
Some may think it's too early to start talking about New Year’s resolutions but Christmas has come around so fast, we'll blink and it'll be the new year. So before all the Christmas chaos of the upcoming few days truly begins, I thought I’d share my New Year’s blogging resolutions with you all. You know, getting a head start and all that.
Sometimes it’s slightly overwhelming looking back over the past year and thinking that it’s one more year over and done with. One more year that’s passed us by in a blink of an eye. Occasionally in the past when it comes to the end of a year I take a look back and realise not much has happened, or nothing of any significance anyway. Yet 2018 feels different than the rest, more pivotal.
