Summer 2016 Resolutions

flat lay, blogger, book, purple tulip, hand, green tea, cakeFirst off, apologies are due for my not-so-brief hiatus from blogging. Deadlines and moving back to London are to blame. Anyway, uni work has finished, I've quit my job at the coffee shop and I have a looong summer to get back into the flow of blogging. So expect to see much more from me!

For this first returning post, I've decided to share my summer resolutions with you. Just a few small, achievable goals to make the use of this time off.

1. Read more
When I was younger, I used to take out 12 books a week from the library and promptly devour them. But then I got older, I started going out more, studying became more full on, and distractions like Netflix meant my evenings were spent staring at a screen. I do still read everyday, thanks to my favourite blogs and magazine subscriptions, and enjoy it. However, I want to read a proper novel again. So I'm planning to dig out my library card and stick my head in a book. I'd be grateful if you could leave any book recommendations below.

2. See more art
I live in London, and if a fashion exhibit comes to town I am the first one there. But I'm not so good with art. However I have enjoyed the times I've accompanied my sister to a photography exhibit or visited the National Gallery. I intend to make the most of this cultural hub that I live in, as I've taken it for granted for too long. Some art/fashion exhibitions on my hit list:
Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear
Missoni Art Colour
Dutch Flowers

3. Take more pictures
Weird goal for a fashion blogger, I realise. But my iPhone library is filled with more images of coffees and bags than actual moments with friends. Uni is flying by and I'll regret it if I don't have many pictures to remember it by. I have exciting trips planned for this summer, and they'll be a good opportunity to capture moments I'll want to remember.

4. Blog
As I said above, I want to use this summer to blog more. Now I've typed and published it (eek!) I'll have to follow through. So watch this space...

Have you got any resolutions for this summer? Let me know down below!

  1. I used to read so much too but revision is literally taking over my life! I agree with the tale more pictures, I know what you mean by having more photos of food than friends on your phone :)


    1. Revision really killed it for me too! Good luck with it and hopefully you can read more after :)

  2. I am exactly the same with reading more. I used to churn through books and then just stopped (I blame social media for wasting my life!). Good luck getting back into the swing of the things again since your move :)
