New Year’s Favs & Resolutions for 2014


What is not to love about New Years Eve? 

This picture was from last New Year’s, which I was fortunate enough to spend in Barcelona, Spain- fancy-shmancy I know! Look at me just dripping in festivness!!

This year was more typical:


Spent with a couple of close friends: scattegories, sparklers, and more than a couple shots- really my fav way to spend any evening, but New Year’s in particular 🙂 

I got thinking about what I like so much about New Year’s this year (or rather last year ha ha…)

and here are my TOP 5 FAVS about New Year’s!

#1 Shrimp rings with the horseradish tomato sauce (most delicious thing ever put together)

#2 Over the top glitter being a 100% legitimate make-up look for the night

#3 Sparklers / Fireworks / Confetti explosions 

#4 Champagne (or shots- depending on how classy you’re feeling that night)

AND.. #5 Resolutions— 

This year, instead of making my usual vague and overachieving resolutions, I have decided to make them a little more specific and a little more achievable. And the resolution I finally landed on was all about creativity and this blog in particular. 

So without further adieu … I resolve to:

Post a minimum of 3 times a week to this blog- with possible increases to daily blogging in the future (but let’s not be too hasty yet..). 

One of these posts will be my fixed feature of ‘Soup Sunday’ which will soon become ‘Supper Sunday’ as I am actually starting to see the end of all the soups I know how to make…

The second post will be a new feature ‘Wellness Wednesday‘ (that’s a working title..) because I’m actually really into all things health (having a psych/health degree) and I am always asked by my friends about my diet, motivation & positivity, and other fitness and wellness tips – so that will be a sort of ‘living your best healthy life’ kind of thing. Not to mention I have slightly fallen off the health bandwagon and this will hopefully encourage me to jump back on it! 

Then on top of those two fixed posts, I will post a minimum of one creative post per week– whether it be a sewing project, a DIY, crochet, beading, possibly make-up tutorial (?)- anything creative! 

Then after all of those minimum 3 three posts, I will try to post more things like outings, OOTD, or other tag-style things like ‘my favourites’ or hauls. 

So I am anticipating a hectic schedule for myself this 2014, and hopefully this blog will give me the motivation I need to get all of that done- and possibly build my little community on here! 

Looking forward to the upcoming Sewing and Life Adventures of Emerald Erin: 2014!! <3
