New Year's Resolutions... 2.0!

Hi Guys,

This will be my last post of 2016! How time flies! At the beginning of this year I was a nervous girl hidden behind a screen; although, I am still on your screens, I no longer feel hidden. My page views are insanely good and my confidence has hugely grown! Who knows, maybe 2017 will be the year that Runnerella's identity is finally revealed! 

Still in the mood of nostalgia, the start of this post will be a look back at last years resolutions. If I'm completely honest, I can't even remember what they were! So here it goes...

  • Post on Time- This post was written when I was still posting twice a week. It was so hard to keep up with everything soIi stopped doing that in March. Ever since then I haven't missed a week! Okay, that might be a slight lie but I am waaaay better then I used to be!
  • 5k in 28 minutes- Does anyone remember when I actually used to blog about running? My name suggests I still do, but my content is so different! Now I'm more focused toward fashion and lifestyle so have a look at my archive if you want to read a bit of vinatge Runnerella (you really don't, my writing style was tragic!). In case you were actually wondering, I can't even run 5k in 30 minutes anymore, never mind 28!
  •  Believe in Myself- That was such a cute resolution! I genuinely forgot I had written that! My last sentence proves how much I stuck to it, though! Self-doubt is still something I'm working on but I have improved so much on where I was at last year. It must have been a sub-concious change too, because I definitely wasn't thinking about it!

Okay, now we've finished with the look back section of the post, I'm going to move onto this years resolutions! I want this look back to be a yearly thing, so if you are reading this in 2018, go and check out what I had to say about all of this after a year! But, without further ado, let's get into it...

  • Get Better at Intros-:If you are here pretty often, then you'll know how bad I am at introducing my posts. I just find it really awkward! How do you manage to go from saying hello to a piece of serious journalism (if you are here pretty often, you will know that that's a blatant lie!)? I'm hoping that by 2018 I'll have a strategy to make my intros slightly less terrible!
  •  Do Pilates- This is really random; it is something I want to do! Blogilates is my favourite Youtube channel so I'm hoping I'll pick up a thing or two from Cassie. She's so cool! Also, her Instagram is amazing, which brings me onto my next resolution...
  • Take more photographs- I've been really into editing photos for my Instagram so I'm hoping that 2017 will be the year it takes off. My phone has an amazing camera so I'll be able to get some great pictures from that. Is it too ambitious to say I'm hoping for 1000 insta followers by 2018? (Go follow me!!)
  • Keep Up My Bullet Journal- For Christmas, I was given a really nice notebook, which I decided to turn into a bullet journal. From then on, I've been totally obsessed with all of the beautiful bullet journal Instagram accounts! I'm not artistic so mine will definitely not be as cute but I'm going to give it a go!
This has got to have been one of my favourite posts! If you liked it, tell me in the comments; tell me your New Years Resolutions too! Don't forget to add me to your Circles on Google +. Would it be crazy if I said that I wanted to be at one thousand followers here too? Tell your friends about me! See you all next year!

Thanks for Reading

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
