Goals For 2017

Well, it's that time of year again to recap on my goals for 2016 and make new ones for the year ahead. In all honesty, 2016 was pretty rubbish, not just for politics and celebrity deaths but for myself in general. I won't go into any great details as I want to keep this as positive as possible but to put it into simple terms, things didn't turn out how I expected. Despite this, some great things have happened this year that will also make 2016 unforgettable. So without further ado, let's get straight to it :)

  1. Going on holiday with Ellie to Japan has definitely been the highlight of my year
  2. The biggest seller in my Etsy shop is my donut necklace and I couldn't be happier! 
  3. Dying my hair red was a pretty big deal for me as I have never dyed my entire hair before
  4. Me and Ben went on holiday to Greece for some much needed sunshine 
  5. You guys have been awesome with sending me pictures of my creations in your homes
  6. Having my donut necklace in Mollie Makes has literally made one of my dreams come true!
  7. Getting a new puppy has made the Scott/Hendry home complete 
  8. Turning 25 and going to Hyper Japan in London was so much fun 
  9. Making resin crafts has definitely been a big hit and something I really enjoy making

Looking back on my goals for 2016 were very short and sweet. To recap, I basically wanted to give some more time to myself and concentrate on making myself happy. In ways I feel I have done this but I think this could be improved so much more so that is something else I want to continue working on in 2017. I really want to cut out the whole comparing myself to others thing and take each day as it comes which I feel wraps up in a nice package in terms of making myself happy. I also want to really push my Instagram account and really connect on a much bigger scale with you all. I feel that I have already come a really long way and I definitely see my account coming on leaps and bounds since last year. I want to continue making new crafts for my Etsy shop and promoting myself as much as I can through social media (something I hope to push with Instagram). Again, I feel this has already gone really well and I already have new stock being shipped as we speak which I am super excited about! In terms of my blog, I want to improve my content and update on a much more regular basis (going to aim for once a week) as well as continuing with my YouTube channel which I am thoroughly enjoying at the moment. I hope that by the end of the year to get myself a better camera for filming as well as studio lights and a mini tripod so I can also vlog on a regular basis for you all :) 

So that's it guys, thank you so much for all your positivity over the past year and making my blog something to be proud of. I love you all and I hope you have an amazing 2017, happy new year!
