I Don’t Wanna Sit Still, Look Pretty

new year


Starting off 2017 with one of my first resolutions, which is to write more of my blog as I have definitely been slacking off recently. I am not usually one for New Year’s resolutions because I think if you’re going to start something or make a lifestyle change, what’s the point in waiting until January 1st? You may as well just start!

However, just coincidentally January will be filled with lots of new starts for me as I am moving back down to the south and starting a new job which is very exciting for me! My life recently has felt so busy with balancing working loads, job-hunting, and spending most of my weekends driving for hours to visit everyone, so I am also very excited by the prospect of having some extra time and deciding what to do with it!

“I don’t wanna sit still, look pretty”

This quote is from a song that I’ve listened to on repeat for the last few weeks which is Sit Still, Look Pretty by Daya. It’s about doing more with your life than just sitting back and doing what is expected and relying on other people. It’s resonating with me at the moment because – for starters it’s really catchy – it’s about being ambitious and independent and going for what you want which is how I’m feeling about 2017!

(N.B. Someone may need to remind me about this in a couple of weeks when it’s dark and cold and I don’t want to go for  run and instead I’m sat on the sofa drinking hot chocolate and watching re-runs of Gossip Girl on Netflix…)

Unintentionally, my whole outfit except for my boots turned out to be from New Look – I have steered clear of New Look for a while as it was the one decent clothing store near us growing up so filled me with memories of my awkward teenage phase! But I really think they have upped their game recently and I am loving their selection at the moment!

My boots are the result of a LOT of searching – I have been after some over-the-knee boots for so so long but have been very particular about what I wanted so they took ages to find, but thanks to Public Desire I finally found the perfect pair in these!

Hope you all had an incredible New Year and good luck for 2017!

    I totally agree with starting the resolutions straight up! Why wait until the 1st of Jan? My gym will be crammed and I hate the idea of being surrounded by a sea of sweaty people for instance…

    Congrats for the new job! Really rooting for you and wish all of the very best.

    Looking forward to seeing more posts! 🙂 xx
