New Year's Resolutions 2014

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to write a post on my New Year's resolutions for 2014. I normally try to set myself some goals for the year and some smaller challenges for each month, and this year is one where I really want to try and make a go of things. After last year showing me that if I put in the time and effort I can achieve a lot - getting my first full-time permanent job and reaching 100 blog followers, for instance - I now want to really try and get some things under my belt. So, with this in mind, I'm going to set myself some major goals for the year as well as smaller targets for each month to help me stay on track.
  1. Blog at least every other day.
  2. Run a 5K.
  3. Buy a flat with N.
  4. Perfect my skincare and everyday make-up routines.
  5. Use up a net balance of 30 beauty products.
  6. Read at least 50 books.
  7. Take more photographs that aren't just for blogging.
  8. Watch all the TV series I started but haven't finished, particularly Lost and Heroes.
  9. Wear the clothes I already own regularly and only buy new stuff when I need it.
  10. Eat more healthily, particularly more fruit and vegetables.
  11. Learn to drive.
  12. Finish writing my novel.
  13. Go to at least one blogging event.
And three specific resolutions for January:
  1. Go to the gym at least twice a week.
  2. Not go to bed wearing my make-up once all month (I am shamefully bad at doing this when I've been out and know it isn't good for my skin!)
  3. Try at least one new recipe.
So they're my resolutions for 2014 - let's see how well I do! Have you made any New Year's Resolutions?
