New Years Eve

NEW YEAR..  here we are again just 12 hours until we are officially in the new year and 2018 is upon us. Everyone is different, some people love NYE and have parties and really celebrate the new year coming,  whereas others really hate the whole concept of the new year and have an early night! 

Personally, I think it's important to remind ourselves that although the new year seems a good idea for changing things and having a fresh start, YOU can make the decision to change something at any point in the entire year... 

This being said, I personally love the celebrations that a new year brings and we always have a little gathering at our home since becoming homeowners three years ago! My husbands family is Scottish and we all know that Hogmanay is HUGE in Scotland - I always say to Robert that we must spend a NYE celebration in Scotland one day! 

He can play the bagpipes and when the clock strikes twelve he will go outside and play a few tunes for me and our guests. I'm not sure it's something all of our neighbours appreciate but there has been a few come out and listen to him play in the past.  

I'm not sure if I really like the whole term of new year resolutions as I think this just encourages people to set themselves targets that they will probably get bored of within the first few weeks of January and then give up. However, I do think it is important to have something to focus on and a goal you would like to achieve in 2018. I just think you have to be realistic when you set these so you can maintain them throughout 2018 and onwards. 

Robert and I have been redecorating our house recently so our home is definitely going to be something that we have as our focus for the next year. We brought our house three years ago but due to wedding plans, time constraints and money constraints we haven't been able to really make our house the way we would like it. 

Look out for the blog posts on here as I document what we do to our home :)

I have also signed up for a boot camp starting the 8th of Jan which consists of a basic meal plan and 2x 45 mins gym sessions a week on a Monday and Wednesday mornings for 12 weeks, as I have enjoyed working out this year and so wish to continue that into 2018 - I love all naughty foods so we will see how well I get on with the meal plan haha!

The best part of the new year is that Robert buys me a new planner for Christmas and this year I have a gorgeous planner from Carrie & Co (link opens in a new window). I can't wait to start filling this out! :)

Whatever your focus or goals are this 2018 I hope you have all the happiness and success in the world!

I'd love to hear how you prepare for a new year so feel free to leave me a comment below!


Lots of Love
