New Year, New Beginnings...

Hi Guys,

First of all I want to say I'm rather late on the 'Happy New Year' bandwagon! 

I hope you all had a lovely christmas and new years what ever you got up to. Most of mine was spent with family and the boyfriend, watching christmas TV and eating too many tins of roses!
Sadly though, it seems the big day has come and gone and I was pretty disappointed to find this morning that my parents had boxed up the Christmas tree and put the decorations away for another year.

I was pretty lucky this year with presents, probably due to the fact that I had written a long list of products I had seen raved about and wasn't disappointed.  I opened the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, which I'm hoping to do a separate more detailed post for very soon and also the Babyliss Pro Curl Curler, which I was absolutely wetting myself to try out. Since opening the little bundle of joy I've hardly used my straighteners so I was potentially considering using this as my first Vlog - what do you think?

As for new years, I was pretty looking forward to an end to 2013 and a fresh start. 
Some of you may know that 2013 hasn't been the best year for me, unfortunately I spent 5 months of it at home due to health issues. Thankfully these seem to be behind me now so I'm literally itching to get out of the house at every opportunity.

As for resolutions, I have two. The first being the usual 'I want to eat healthily and join a gym' - sadly it's now the 4th of January and I have done neither!

The second resolution being, 'To blog more often and to get out meeting people in the blogging community' - So this being my first blog post of the new year, I'm hoping to post at least once or twice a week, bearing in mind I work full time :)

What did you get for Christmas and have you got any resolutions for 2014? 

Thanks & Freckles


  1. Those are some very awesome Christmas presents! As for New Years Resolutions... I go to the gym frequently, but I want to revamp my workout plan. Find a plan you can work with and make going to the gym fun! That way it won't seem like such a chore that you're happy to give up in a few months, and you won't waste the money on a gym membership :)

    1. You're doing better than me! Although that's pretty true, I'm going to try a few new ways to work out other than just going to the gym. Possibly join a local running club and see what happens :) Hope you find a new workout plan and can stick to it x

  2. I am so jealous of your naked palette!!! I really want to by one but I have to be careful of my pennies!!

    How is the new camera doing? You need to do an update soon!

    1. Hi Corinne,

      Make sure you have enough to eat and then consider saving for it as I don't think there have been many time that I've gone out and I haven't used it!

      I'm hoping to give you guys an update on the camera very soon - so watch this space!
