My New Years Resolutions

Okay, so I might be two weeks late with this post. But it's better late than never, so here we go with my five new years resolutions!

 1. Read more books.
Well this is probably on everyones list, but an important one nonetheless. I've been reading the Game of Thrones books for what feels like forever, and I'm still only on A Feast for Crows - this year I'm determined to break through, catch up with them all and finally get round to reading the others on my pile. (Before I, you know, buy even more books to hoard.) 
 2. Wear more trousers.
Okay, this one probably isn't on most peoples lists. But it is on mine, and I have good reason for it - I'm stuck in a dress wearing rut. I gave up on trousers (especially jeans) a few years back, as I embraced my more natural inclination to girly skirts and dresses, and now I want to break free! Who says trousers are masculine? My collection of mom jeans and floral dungarees above certainly doesn't.
 3. Bake more.
Okay, so I've become a bit of a Bake Off addict recently. And when I say addict, I mean I watched four series in about two weeks. Thats a lot of watching people make bread. And while I now can't eat a baked item without impersonating Paul Hollywood, it's definitely inspired me to do more baking. Watch this space, soon I'll be a pie baking queen.
 4. Make more.
Whether it's for my etsy shop or for my degree, I want to make sure I'm producing waaay more than I did last year.  As well as making more, I also want to improve other making skills such as knitting (not needing my mum to cast on or off for me would be a start), and just to make sure I'm prepared when it comes to etsy - making a million sloths on four hours sleep was not a fun experience.

5. Work more.
Yep, I'm that kind of fun person who puts 'work more' on their new years resolutions. When I say work more, I really mean I want to be more productive, and spend less time sleeping or watching youtube. Which will hopefully mean I'll get my uni work done faster, which means I can blog more, yay! So really, I'm just doing this for you guys. I know, I'm so considerate. 

And those are my five new years resolutions! I have a few more like 'eat more vegetables' and 'get up earlier' but I figured they probably wouldn't be the most thrilling to read (and probably wouldn't be true, either). 
Be sure to let me know what your resolutions are for the year - I'd love to hear!


Thanks for reading!
