New Years Eve Walk & New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year's eve everyone! I know many people are thinking this but can you believe it's going to be 2015 tomorrow? A new start and a new chapter for everyone. I hope everyone has a really nice day! I'm really going to make 2015 wayy more better than 2014. It's been a pretty tough year. So we both thought there would be nothing more relaxing than saying 'f*ck off' to this year than going on a nice winter walk to the park with our parents and doggies. I wanted to get a photograph of the dogs but they never stay still! They were both too busy slipping all over the icy pavements. Doesn't it all look so beautiful with the frost and the left over remains of snow on the ground? My favourite type of Winter weather.
We also thought we'd add in some quick New Year's resolutions for 2015. I never stick to these but I think it's still great to make them and have personal goals!

1. Don't hate on yourself so much. I know, me and Rachel are terrible for this and it's something I've never talked about on the blog before. We constantly pick on ourselves and sadly make ourselves feel worthless. We have very low self esteem because of being bullied in school I think. I think trying to boost our self esteem is going to be the best thing for us.

2. Continue art and guitar. I love being creative but obviously I can start losing focus. Especially with guitar - sometimes I want to smash it because I feel so frustrated learning it! But I want to make sure I keep on learning borth art and guitar because I do love it really. No matter how frustrating it might get!

3. To be more positive. I should probably say not to worry as much too. I swear my mind never stops torturing me and making me worry about things that don't matter/aren't true.

Have you made any New Year's Resolutions?

  1. I have the worst self-esteem ever!!! Like I can totally relate. It sucks that you have been bullied, don't listen to those people they are obviously not ok with themselves if they have to put you two down. Once school is over you'll never have to seem them again so don't worry about them :) Good luck girls!

    What a stunning place, wow! Too bad you couldn't get a photo of the doggies mine are the same way though haha Never listen :P
    You two look gorgeous in these photos as well :D

    Happy New Year!! We wish for you both have an amazing 2015! :D

  8. Amazing pictures! I definitely agree with you. 2014 has been a bad year and I am so happy it is finally over and I am hoping 2015 will be way better! I agree with your resolutions. I for sure need to stop hating on myself and be more positive because I always make everything so negative and awful for myself! I hope you both have a brilliant 2015 and good luck! x

  13. The snow does look really lovely. Nice goals to have in the new year, it's so easy to be negative but it feels so much better to be positive. My confidence can be at the lowest point sometimes and I'll be worrying about things that aren't true. But I've decided to just go with the flow and be a happier person cause I can. Happy new year!!
