The Sunday Edit #80

Well, I think we have all established that I am a terrible blogger. I seem to have completely lost interest in my blog over the last month, I think it is mainly due to the amount of college work I have had and with mock exams too I have been mega stressed. I haven't really been in the right mindset for blogging, everything has just seemed like a chore recently because I have been so exhausted and de-motivated. However, now mock exams are over, work with college has been dying down slightly so I have had more time to myself to just relax and recharge my batteries. The other day, I was scrolling through my bloglovin feed for the first time in about a month and it reminded me of why I used to enjoy blogging so much and it encouraged me to pull myself together, plan some posts and sit down on my laptop and just write. College had completely taken over my life ad everything else seemed to take a back seat, but alas I have had a sudden burst of creativity and started to share my time between college and the things I enjoy.

So alot has happened since I last wrote a blogpost! I have been learning to drive and I am nearly there, I have booked my theory test so as soon as I have passed that then I can start thinking about doing my practical test and then I will finally be on the road! I have been looking at car's, and I have been looking into leasing a mint green fiat 500. I found a fantastic deal which included a brand new fiat 500, 3 years of insurance and 3 years of free servicing for £239 which I am certainly considering, however I would probably wait until March time when I would hopefully have passed my test and then the new registration number will be out too! I want to avoid paying for a car that is sat on the drive not being used because I can't drive it, so I will be waiting a while. I am always looking to hear peoples opinions on fiat 500's or how to get the best deals so if you have any advice or experience that you're willing to share with me then do let me know. As you can imagine, posts with new products in will be scarce over the next few months because paying for driving lessons, tests and a car is certainly not cheap and any money that I'm getting just goes straight into my savings so I can finally get on the road. As exciting as this is, it is actually quite scary because I am another step closer to adult hood which I'm not sure I'm ready for!

I am going to get my best of 2015 posts up this week, and also some other exciting things that you can keep your eye out for!  I hope you have had a lovely week and thank you for sticking with me through my absence!

My New Year's Resolutions for 2016

Well another year has been and gone, whizzed by so fast that yesterday I wrote my Happy new year post for 2015 and today its 2016. Complete and utter madness! Anyways, let get onto all the things that I am going to force myself to do this year!

1) Pass my driving test - One of the most exciting things I can make happen in 2016 is being able to drive. I have been learning for a month now and I am getting on really well, I aim to book my theory for the end of January so I aim to get on the road around March/April time! I am determined to get on the road very soon!

2) Drink more water - I say this one every year but I really do mean it this year. I'm determined to be healthier and feel more lovely so drinking plenty more water will help so much with improving how I feel and my skin.

3) Work hard - I am determined to stop slacking and being lazy, I am determined to keep on top of college work, pack in as much extra work as I can and make sure that I get the good AS Grades that I am desperate to get!

4) Get back on the Blogging game - After I lost the ability to take photos for my blog, I lost all motivation to do any blogging and I have majorly slacked off towards the end of 2015. I have missed blogging so much and I am desperate to get back on it, posting regularly so I can start building my blog and hopefully gain some new readers!

5) Make time for Twitter Chats - I have all of my Twitter chats programmed into my phone so I get reminders when they start, but I never get involved! I aim to start interacting on twitter and social media a lot more so I can interact with other bloggers and my readers.

6) Be more positive - I've been a bit miserable this year, for no real reason I've just become really negative. I am fed up of feeling down and rubbish so I am determined to be more positive and make myself feel better. I need to focus on the important things and stop little things getting me down.

That is all of resolutions for this year, let me know what yours are! Wishing you all a very happy and healthy new year!
