Taking up new hobbies
One of the positives that came out of 2020 was that I took more time for myself and this is a mantra I wanted to take into the New Year with me. I can't tell you how long I've wanted to take up calligraphy and I finally bit the bullet and ordered myself a calligraphy beginners kit the other day. I'm looking forward to wasting hours away on my new hobby, but there's still lots of other things I'd love to take up like candle making (using this candle making kit) and even getting myself a wax seal stamp set so I can act like I'm in a period drama - anybody wanted Bridgerton yet?
Learn and Let Go
Continue on my fashion journey
Although last year certainly had it's highs and lows, I think I had an epiphany in regards to my personal style. I had the mentality of "if I'm not going to wear this on my daily walk or the trip to the supermarket, when am I going to wear it?" which made me pluck up the courage to wear whatever outfit I please. My confidence grew and over the course of the year, I developed my sense of style even further.
I think I've always had a broad range of fashion, some days I will opt for an all black outfit and others I will be head to toe in plaid looking like I've stepped directly off the Hogwarts Express. Jeans are a thing of the past and I've embraced that extra comfort of an elasticated waist band, my wardrobe doesn't have a theme and you certainly wouldn't look at it and think curated, but it's looks more like 'me' everyday and I hope to continue that way of thinking into 2021.
