Whats on your bedside table?
31 December 2014
1. Spend more time with my family. As we all get older, we tend to slowly drift away. Starting your own family, moving out of town and so on. I often tell myself I should go home more... but never do. It wasn't until recently that I realised I had moved out 8yrs ago and my parents probably get very lonely. Hopefully 2015 will be different.
2. Inject more creativity and time into my work. I often have amazing idea's but don't push through with them, 2015 will be different.
3. Learn to say NO... sometimes. I am a people pleaser and often tend to say yes to every favour asked, even if it's inconvenient for myself. When I sit down and ask myself 'Would that person unconditionally help me the same way I just helped them?' Probably not. Sometimes being the 'Nice Girl' is not nice.
4. And finally, buy less. Yes I said it! Growing up within a family of women who love to shop, it's a no brainer that I too, love to shop. However my recent moto is spend more, buy less. I used to spend a fortune on 'throw-away fashion', you know, the kinda fashion that's out of style a few months down the line and ends up sitting at the back of your wardrobe until you can be bothered to have a clear out. That kind of shopping is actually VERY expensive and wasteful when you add it up. Instead I have been buying more quality clothing that will last years to come, accessories that will last a lifetime and handbags I can pass down to my children. I like to call it investment, cost per wear.
What are your New Year Resolutions?
