without further ado; 2022

Hello friends, I'm well aware that we're in the third week of january, but if you don't mind that, happy new year! :) 

2021 was a very eventful year for me. Against all odds I was able to graduate from University of the Arts London with a 2:1 in fashion styling and production, and had my work shortlisted and featured in their exhibitions and graduate show. I left my job with Disney after 5 magical years with the company, a decision I was nothing short of terrified of making but knew needed to happen for my growth as a creative diving into the world of fashion. Shortly after, I took a well needed mental health break by going to the most fast paced and hectic city in the world, figures. Also, I got vaccinated. There's been a lot of huge changes for me this year, probably more than any other year in my life, but I'm grateful for all the happenings of 2021 that allowed me to be who I am today. If 2021 was a tarot card, It would be death. 


I've never been the "new year, new me" type of person, but I somehow found myself committing all my time to creating a better version of myself. I had a lot of time to think about who I was, who I am today and what I what to do with my life and this blog. I usually make new year goals but this year feels different. I feel like that's because this year, I'm actively trying to make these goals come true rather than waiting for them to just happen, and I'm really excited to see where I'll be this time next year. Last year, I my only goal was to 'go at my own pace and create things for me, the success will follow'. and I guess that did happen, I achieved all that I wanted last year, but I didn't feel as if I pressured myself to get there. 

That's not to say this year I will be pressuring myself, because that's definitely not the case, but I'm absolutely going to make sure I'm working towards my goals and actively creating the type of life I wish to have, and the woman I wish to be. This is all very long winded, but I do enjoy writing out my thoughts on the year that passed and the year I envision for the next. So without further ado, my goals for 2022; 

♡ Get a Job / Gain Industry Experience. Now, this might be a little unbelievable but, I applied for a job on Monday January 10, had an interview the following Friday, and got a job that same evening. To say I was shocked is an understatement, but I was very excited to say I can already cross this off my list on week 2 of 52. But then I thought "why stop there?". I'll be working as a PR Intern within the creative sector, focusing on fashion brands and magazines with opportunity for it to turn into a full time gig. I also want to get my masters in Fashion Communication or Marketing. I can do more, I have the time for more, and internships don't last forever, so I'm keeping this goal a little longer, and see how much experience I can gain.

♡ Maintain a healthy lifestyle. This had always been an important goal for me but this year, fuck it. I'm going to give this my biggest and best shot. *sing's bet on it* Look if troy can juggle the theatre and sport, I can juggle fashion and working out lol. I also want to focus on my diet, eating less of my one true love, bread. I need to make sure I'm not self inflicting pain by bread (too much bread triggers my IBS). I want to get my bad habits in check and creating good ones. More fruits, less bread. More sleep, less bread. More walks, less bread... but the croissants stay. I'm happy with my figure, but I can also do with a good shape up, toning myself out and all, so once I've settled on a good home workout routine, I might just take a visit to the gym... 

♡ Curate my personal style & brand. I previously mentioned wanting to develop my brand and style more to get a better sense of who I am and what I can bring to the table in my career and even on this blog, and I guess I can say I've already achieved this as well. A better name for this goal would be to properly execute the content I create to showcase my brand and style. I'm hoping that having a PR internship and hopefully many more job opportunities in marketing and social media for fashion can help me be more confident in presenting my ideal self online. I really need to post on instagram :') 

♡ Post Consistently with content I enjoy re-reading. I guess this one isn't really necessary to have as a goal, but I wanted to mention it anyway since it's about this blog, and the direction I want to take it in. It's crazy to say I've been writing content here for almost 9 years and yet, I never really had an idea of what this blog was about. But after years of trying to figure out what my 'thing' is, I realized that, it's me. It's about my life and what I love and enjoy doing or seeing or being. So I want to create more content that does just that. I want to create content that I enjoy reading, and stop trying to emulate popular posts when those are the one's I actually skip most of the time. I also want to be consistent in my posting... Yeah. Let's see how that one goes. 

If it happens, it happens, but I'm going to give it my best shot.
