New Year, New Start!

That's my motto for this year.

Happy New Year to y'all, hope you had a good one. I've had this past week off work and have hit the shops while everyones been back at work/school. It has been loooooovely. Quiet, peaceful, a really relaxing shopping experience. I cant deal with the shops if they're busy and messy, hence why my sale spree never really materialised.

I picked up these sparkly shorts in H&M during the week and love them! They're slightly high-waisted which is something i have shyed away from in the past. I've always wanted a pair of high-waisted shorts but have told myself i will treat myself to a nice pair once I've sorted out my bikini body. I didn't realise they were high-waisted when i bought them (never try anything on ...) but i think they look ok, plus now i have the added incentive to begin (and stick to) the 30 Day Shred.

These photo's were also the first I've taken with my new camera! Still getting used to it, hoping for some nicer weather so i can go out and about and practise taking some snappy snaps.

Hows 2012 treating you so far? What are your hopes and dreams for the year ahead?




  1. CUTE! I love the pleated detail, very swishy!

    And a happy new year to you doll! This year I hope to actually start sewing and making/altering clothes :)

  4. like the shorts, and the necklace is lovely :)
    i guess my goals for 2012 are to be more organised, and to keep up with the exercise / weight loss which i began last autumn. also i would love to learn to knit :)

  5. You are so pretty! I love these photos! The skirt is so sweet and cute. My new years eve was really low key, just hanging out with a couple of friends inside and a few drinks. It was nice!
    I have so many new years resolutions.. mostly to do with blogging, actually! Happy new year, dear.

    Love & Cake,

  6. Gorgeous outfit, love the shorts, although I thought they were a skirt!
