 I don't like the word 'resolutions', i don't get it, i'm still the same person as i was december 31st. And if anything, with the new year come january blues, and most of the time i don't feel like leaving my bed. But on sunday i'm moving to New York, from my bed in London. What? So i thought i should make a list, (i love lists) to give my life a little framework. It's a 2014 to-do list, my hopes and drives. Tried to keep it to 10, but, this blog has no organisation so i give you 11.

1. Start something new

2. Buy the entire Clothbound Classics series from Penguin
What could be more beautiful, (and expensive)? I need them in my life, to look at, read and share. I think there's around 31 at the moment, and i want to start with my favourites. Birds, scissors, waves, chairs, butterflies...I've been drooling over these for a while.

3. Do the 50 book challenge
In a year, which probably sounds easy peasy since i'm a literature student, but i want to read more contemporary works. I'm still a classical book girl, love my victorians especially. I've already enjoyed Haddon's Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, read it in a day! Aside my course novels, this was the first book of my year.

4. Reunite with my old friends
I'm awful at keeping contact, half the time i don't reply to messages, and then they slip my mind and i forget and i need to work on this. I don't know why this happens, it shouldn't happen!

5. Start university projects the day they are set
Even if this means light reading. Just to avoid shitty work when i know i can do better.

6.. Wake up earlier
Everyday before 10am at least.

7. Blog at least once a week
I love blogging though university fills my entire world and mind and i brush my blog under the carpet. I want to take a picture a day in New York, and do a weekly update post with them all on here, for my family at home especially.

8. Book a holiday

9. Treat my body well
Cut out dairy and all the nasties, i need to put my health first. Use my juicer more.

I have a writing journal that my boyfriend gave me for crimbo, and i want to write all about New York in it.

11. And finally, worry less, stress less
This is partly why i have such an amazing relationship with my bed lately because its easier to sleep and forget my worries than to burn them and this year i'm going to stop sleeping as much and return to the things i used to love to do most. And i need to have more self-worth, and believe i can do things.


  1. Hi again! You're back, yay. I see you have been hiding for quite some time, and that makes me sad. But I am happy to read your writing and look at your photos once again. First of all, you're moving to New York??!?!?!?! What????! How did this happen? I am in envy, but also nervous and excited for you - such a big adventure. You have set such wonderful goals, I especially like the worry less, stress less one because I can relate.

    Good luck on all lovely, keep us updated on here! xx

  2. Good luck with this to-do list! I could never cut out dairy, cheese is my best friend haha.
