Anyway, so 2012 was a pretty awesome year. I went to Paris, New York and London and so any year that involves all that is definitely pretty good! With regards to my 2012 goals, some I achieved (see: seeing friends, making an effort to visit more of the UK and carry on blogging and learning more about photography). Some I didn't, like learning to knit. I just do not understand it. Also, visiting the amazing places above pretty much battered my save, save, save goal.
So, on to 2013. This year I am 30. Woah. So, I have lots of plans that I am really determined to see through to completion. I have all the usual goals of everyone else including be healthy, more active, save money blah blah, but the below are also my top goals! Some fun, some harder, some totally frivolous. What are your aims for the year ahead?

This might seem a frivolous resolution, but it's also pretty easy to accomplish. I want to wear red lipstick more often. I love it but I am lazy and quite self conscious about it. Mastering red lipstick seems like a fun thing to get right.

I want to continue learning more about and getting better at my passions- marketing, travelling to cities, photography, starting a business. Learning never gets old.

I am guilty of always looking forward to the next big thing. The next trip, night out, big occasion etc. So, I want to specifically focus on enjoying the small stuff each day and investing in these moments. I want to spend time and money on the small, every day things. Stuff like investing in great coffee, super music, fun lunches with friends and the petrol money needed to get to the beach.

Stop procrastinating. Seriously I am the best procrastinator in the world. I always have been. I love putting stuff off until that stressful, panic, crazy filled deadline. Well, I don't really. It drives me mad so I really want to change this (let's ignore the fact that this post was supposed to be up yesterday).

Continue to be more creative. Things like learning more about photography, trying out a new recipe, taking a sketchbook everywhere, drawing on an envelope before I send it. Just the little, creative stuff that adds the colour into life. I might even try knitting again.

Pizza is my all time favourite food. Luckily it's my husband's too. A great margherita and a good glass of red wine and I am in heaven. We went on Scott's Pizza Tour and it was amazing. So, I want to learn to make amazing pizza at home. Well, as well as I can without a 100 year massive pizza oven in my house.
