Happy New Year my loves!!! IT’S BLOODY 2018 SERIOUSLY WHERE DID 2017 GO?! I have so much to talk about honestly! I have been on a break from my blog – it wasn’t a long break but still it was S-O-G-O-O-D. I feel like blogmas really took it out of my and for some reason really knocked my confidence. I was concentrating so much on getting a blog post up every day that I let the quality of my blog and its photography etc decrease and I have let myself down big time.
For example, I have been really debating posting this photo because I don’t like the photography. But I am getting a new camera lens soon, and I have been Pinteresting (find it here) my heart out for new ideas and I am going to make my photography different. I can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring to my life AND my blog because there is going to be a lot of change and a lot happening that will just only better it.
I welcomed the New Year with my better half and our friends. We played monopoly ~ boys v girls ~ and the boys won… but the girls TOTALLY deserved to win!! We had some beverages – obvs – and then at midnight we got the sparklers out. It was lush and to welcome the new year with new friends was awesome.
As said, a lot will be happening this year – 2018 WILL BE WHERE ITS AT!! From now to June I will be mainly focusing on my school work as I have the dreaded A-Level exams and I also have a university interview in a few weeks ~~ EEEK! But after that I am FREEEE for the whole summer and that is when my blog = my priority. That doesn’t mean I won’t be blogging don’t worry! I will just be blogging with less of a routine and my school work will take a priority for now.
I am also planning to go travelling a lot this summer. I am SUPER excited for this as we have just booked to go to Croatia for two weeks, and then we are also planning to go Interailling in July… Imagine the Instagrams I will get out of that!! I will then be starting university at the beginning of September. It will be a roller-coaster as I am already feeling so ready for it yet it also makes me really anxious. Only time will tell.
Another change that has already happened is my blog! Yes! A lot of change has already happened! If you saw my Instagram post you would know I have an announcement and TBH I probably have led you on a bit but my blog is no longer Emily Clare Beauty… I have ditched the ‘Beauty’ bit. So welcome to my blog ‘Emily Clare’. Why have I gotten rid of this?! With everything that is happening on my blog this year it will not be solely a beauty blog anymore. It will have more fashion, lifestyle, travel and random blog posts so the name won’t relate. The URL is staying http://www.emilyclarebeauty.com because I am not a tech guru and haven’t worked that one out yet (if you know how to change it HIT ME UP). My instagram and twitter will be remaining what they are because I don’t want to over-complicate things yet. I have also topped this off with a new header ^^ what do you think??
I hope you had a lovely Christmas and here is to an AMAZING 2018!
Have you got any major plans for this year?!
