2017 Favourites and New Year goals!

Didn't 2017 just fly past! It has definitely been a strange year for me, almost feeling like a bit of a stop-gap between the fabulousness that was 2016 (getting married and having the trips of a lifetime) and what is geared up to be an amazing 2018. I guess I'm a bit disappointed with the year, I didn't move forward my career which was on my agenda and didn't quite meet the goals with my blog either but all the hard work I put into all those aspects of my life is looking to pay off in this new year and the beauty of a new year is the chance to close the door and look forward, and that's exactly what I'm going to do.

But first, a (very) quick look back at a few favourites from 2017 including two trips to Norway, a first-time visit to LA and how could I look back on the year and not remember my first ever helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon for a champagne breakfast. I met new people, went to some fabulous blogger events and grew my Youtube channel, I also managed to get my 5k time back under 22mins which was a fitness goal following a nasty hip injury on the 1st of January! My goal for this year is to get it back under 20mins again and I'm positive that I can do it!

Okay, looking back, the year did contain a lot of fabulous things but I think just the thought of the year ahead makes it pale in comparison! Here are my goals (not resolutions) for 2018:

Advance in my career

This one is potentially on the horizon soon so I'm hoping to be brave enough to say 'yes' to new opportunities.

Buy a house

My husband and I have been saving for some time now and have already started buying new things for the dream family home that we're looking to buy in the first half of this year. Honestly I can't contain my excitement at ridding myself of Magnolia walls and a cheaply fitted kitchen!

Take more photos

Putting this post together made me realise I really don't take enough!

I really want to hit 10k on both this year which I believe is achievable (I'd love it to be more but I will see that as a bonus and not be disappointed)

Focus more on my blog again

Since starting to focus on Youtube I definitely have neglected my blog so I want to try and increase posts to twice a week, do let me know what content you'd love to see!

What are your goals for 2018?
