UK Series: Part 2 and New Year Goals

Hiya (kiss, kiss) right cheek, then left cheek. It is my first full week back from the UK and I already want to go back! Although it is hard getting back to reality after an amazing holiday, I am here, more motivated than ever, with my first official blog post of 2018!

This post is a 2 in 1. I am highlighting this years resolutions and finalizing my UK photo diary.

I am not into the new year, new me. I rather just be the best version of myself and continually work hard for it. Besides, 92% of people don’t actually attain their New Years Resolution goals. That says a lot!

Below, I have listed my goals in 6 categories; family, career, leisure, personal growth, attitude, and health. When thinking about my goals, I wanted to make sure that I was passionate about them. Being passionate about the goals you set gives you a higher likelihood to commit to them.

Now that you have seen my goals for 2018, here is how I spent my last bit of 2017. I hope you enjoy!

London at night is beautiful. London during the holidays is spectacular.

    Welcome back! I know it's always hard to come back from a vacation especially if it is semi home to you. London is amazing and I love all of your photos from your trip! This new year's goals is the perfect "resolution" and I think all of those are on my list as well (except a dog lol). I think to be the best version of yourself is the only goal anyone needs. BTW I love this camel coat on you! xoxo, Christine

    I honestly can't believe that I still haven't visited the UK and these pics are seriously giving me FOMO! I might have to spend my first European Christmas over there because it's just so different to what it's like in AUS!Also loving the fact you don't have resolutions just like me and love how you've broken down the categories of what you want to focus on for the year xxH x

    Your vacation in the UK looked amazing and I enjoyed your photos immensely! I especially loved your learning about your goals. I am very visual and love diagrams so was instantly captivated and inspired by yours – love it! It's also a quick way to look & refer back to it along the way. You've inspired me to diagram & chart my 2018 goals too!

    I really love your diagram! It's really simple and to the point. You can probably print it out and post it somewhere around the house to remind you of your goals too. I want to be able to travel more and perfect my craft. I also need to read more too! Welcome back and cheers to your new goals!

    I can't decide it I like London at Night-time or at Day-time better. Gorgeous images. Makes me want to go back and visit again. I love your New Year resolutions. I share many of these myself. Especially considering health and attitude…When you get a dog make sure to get an active one so he can train the 5k with you. Thanks for sharing.XxSirin

    I haven't been to London yet but I hear that it is the most beautiful city during the holidays because the stores go all out with the decorations. I love your goals and aspirations for 2018, they are so relatable and obtainable.xo

    I haven't been to London in years – looks like you had fun! What I want to know is if you went shopping and what you got! And love your goal chart – I should really put one together too. Wishing you an amazing 2018! XO

    I only dream of being able to go to the U.K. one day soon. It's definitely in the works! I plan on going to LFW this fall, so hopefully that pulls through! I also thought you were already a full time blogger. Love how you have your goals diagrammed too. If you write and speak it into existence, it will happen!

    First, I love your outfit… that coat is beautiful! Second, I so agree! I believe in always striving to grow and improve, not 'becoming a new person' overnight haha. Loved your goals and actually share some of them!
