New year's resolutions 2011

Happy New Year everyone!

I can't believe it's 2011 already, 2010 seems to have gone by in a blink of an eye!

Seeing as it's tradition to make resolutions every year, here are some of mine for 2011:

(pictures from

Read more books
I love reading, but because of the demands of uni work and blogging, I've been neglecting my books, so this year I'm going to make a real effort to read more, even if its only 10mins before bed.

Eat more fruit and veg
I'm quite good at including it as part of my diet, but in 2011 I'm aiming for at least 5 portions a day, after all, it looks and tastes delicious, is packed with vitamins and minerals, helps to fill you up and gives you glowing skin!

Stress out less
When things go wrong, I can get massively stressed, and 9 times out of 10, it works out just fine, so my aim this year, is to take a deep breath, remain calm, and try not to get un-necessarily stressed and panic!

Sort out my wardrobe
I have a serious lack of nice clothes, so this year I'm going to make more effort when I go shopping, try lots of different styles and only buy clothes that look fashionable and suit my figure.

And finally a couple of beauty resolutions:

Continue with project bathroom (using everything up)

Wash my make up brushes fortnightly

Learn the art of eyeshadow blending
Apply body lotion at least once every other day

What are your resolutions for 2011?
