Happy New Year everyone!
I hope you all celebrated well ^_^ I definitely had a lot of fun last night ^_^
I thought I'd write a post today about new years resolutions, and look at the ones from last year and see how I did.
Let's have a look shall we?
No. 1: More Blogging
I had 8 more posts in 2015 than 2014 so... I guess that's a bit of progress? Not really though OTL
I did have many more sponsored posts though, which was nice ^_^ And I think I got a decent posting schedule up, averaging a bit more than a post a week. Yay! Hopefully the productivity will continue into the future ^_^
No. 2: More Lolita
While in Boston, I did get more into the lolita lifestyle. I went to several meetups, and met lots of cool people, but then had to move away ;~; I aim to wear lolita about once a week or so, which is certainly more than I did before. In general, I've spread out to wearing 'cute fashion' a lot more frequently, which I'm pleased with.
No. 3: More Art
I definitely spent a lot more of my free time doing art in 2015. I don't have any art classes currently, but I still make time to draw, which I'm happy about. I've also been doing a lot of polymer clay sculpting, which is lots of fun! I've certainly improved my skills also in lots of different mediums.
On the whole I think 2015's resolutions were kept quite well!
And now, 2016's resolutions! Hopefully I keep them up!
No. 1: Go Cruelty Free
Recently I watched the documentary The True Cost, which discussed the fast fashion industry and how much damage it is causing to both the workers and our environment. It was really quite horrifying (it's a very good movie though- I highly recommend you give it a watch). A lot of retail shops are guilty of the atrocities committed, and I don't want to support that, so I've decided to stop buying things from places like that (Forever 21, H&M, and the like). It's just a bad mindset, and I don't want to be part of that. In addition to that, I want to only purchase makeup/skincare that isn't animal tested. A lot of brands though are going cruelty free in that regard, so it shouldn't be much of a challenge. This also sort of ties in to it, but I want to eat less meat, for both health reasons and ethical reasons. I have high hopes for this resolution!
No. 2: Cosplay!
I've always wanted to do cosplay, but I've never really had much motivation to do it lol. This year I'm hoping to do 1 or 2 cosplays, maybe go to a couple of conventions. I'm thinking of cosplaying Shiro from No Game No Life and maybe a human version of Charlotte/Bebe from Madoka Magica~
No. 3: Lose Weight
I feel like this is on absolutely everyone's resolution list at some point or another haha. Pretty self-explanatory, so I'm not going to go into it too much.
No. 4: Work More on my YouTube
I really need to have more motivation for working on my YouTube channel. I'm just really bad with uploading videos frequently, which is bad. So, I'm hoping to film a lot more and post a lot more this year ;u; Maybe once a week? *crossing fingers hopefully*
And yeah, I think that's about it!
Let me know what your resolutions are, I'd love to hear them!
As always, thank you for reading, and I hope you guys have a magical year <3 <3
