: new Years Resolutions and Newness

Welcome Back Everyone! I hope you all had wonderful Christmases and New Years! I know I’ve taken a bit of the break since Blogmas but I just haven’t really had the time with all the other work and such I’ve been doing.

To start of this post I’ll just keep you up to date with what I’ve been doing since we last spoke:

  •  My Christmas was pretty good but I feel like it all went way too quickly. Plus working over Christmas kinda bought down my festivities a bit but oh well. I got loads of lovely presents which may not have been particular luxurious of expensive but were just perfect fir me really as I didn’t really ask for anything so just received a few bits an bobs including some adorably little desk lights. I may do another (very belated, I know) blog post on some favourite Xmas prezzies i received if you would like that.
  • My contract ended with my job and (because they’re pretty stupid and overstaffed at Christmas) they didn’t keep anyone on But oh well, plenty more jobs I can try.
  • I had an amazing NYE party which even included a cheeky sleepover that night. In the morning our hung over selves watch The Princess and The Frog because we woke up at about 6/7 am. Yeah very little sleep was experienced that night.
  • I made and uploaded to YouTube a “My 2016” video showing all the highlights in chronological order.
  • I have done a lot of January Sales shopping and this past Saturday I bought 2 dresses from New Look (one of which was £1!)
  • I have had to do a lot more revision for my exams and am currently taking a few mock exams.

Next off I’ll tell you my new Years resolutions for this year (as some of you may know I did pretty well in my resolutions last year so lets see how this one goes):

  • This year I only have one resolution. To do more! I know that I did in fact get up to quite a lot last year but I felt like I spent most of my time sitting around doing nothing. I want to change this so I’ve decided to try and say YES more. This resolution has already come into play as I have agreed to go out to places more and I have already found that when you go out on a Friday (after work or school or whatever it is you do) it makes your weekend last a whole lot longer! Like I’ve found that if I do something on a Friday night the next day I assume its Sunday when I have a whole other day more to go before its back to work on Monday. Since the beginning of the year I have also decided to re start a diary/journal type thing. I am writing in it every few days and although I have never been able to stick to one before I hope I can change it around this year!

Now for the Newness:

I was quite proud of myself for my Blogmas (even though I did mess up a few times) and I do really love Blogging and Vloging and so I have made the courageous decision to upload more. So may I introduce to you… NATSCHATS TUESDAYS! From this day forward I will upload a Blog post every week on a Tuesday (at roughly 5pm GMT – 9 am PST). I know this doesn’t seem like an amazing breakthrough or anything but at least this way I’ll be a bit more organised and have something to aim for. I hope that you will all join me on my weekly entries as I really do appreciate every single person that reads this. Though we may be few, we are mighty. Or we mighty few…im sure that some kind of famous quote. I will warn you now, I am a very reliable person in real life but I have a horrific memory (believe me I take psychology) but that is no excuse as what we have here on NatsChatsTV is a family and of course FAMILY COMES FIRST so I am giving you full permission to nag me and shout abuse at me if I neglect you and/or forget a blog post. Literally if anyone Tweets me or comments on my Instagram or even slides into my DMs and mentions my blog post for this week I will get straight back on it I promise!

Blogmas Day 24: Introducing my favourite being

OMG ITS CHRISTMAS EVE!!!

HOW?!?!

My, the time has flown, It is now the night before Christmas (apart from there is a lot of stirring in my house at the moment).

Today as it’s a very special night I wanted to introduce you to someone very, very special to me…

My Dog, Cookie:

Yeah alright, I can already tell there’s going to be a split between the disappointed (those who thought id actually got a boyfriend LOL) and the pleasantly surprised (the dog lovers). I just thought that as Christmas is a time of love you might want to meet the person…well animal I love. I cannot express how much she means to me but she is my equivalent to a daughter. I treat like the baby I never had (I don’t plan on having for a long, long time – before questions start being asked) and love her to bits. So Im basically just gonna tell you a little bit about her.

She was Born in September 2011 *Cue adorable puppy photo*

(Thats my nan by the way, who is an absolute legend!)

She was bought off some slighty dodgy people who lied about her age (she was only 6 weeks when we got her) and most likely mood. She was meant to be a Cocker Spaniel but I mean…

 

There are quite a few differences…also the vet called her deformed because she has 2 more nails than she should (p*ss off)!

We named her Cookie (because come on look at her, she is a little biscuit) and she suits the colour pink (for some reason) which is why all her collars are baby pink.

As it is christmas here is her 2 years ago sporting some very festive gear:

She does have some slight mental issues (I wont go in to it) but we love her and I hope you do too. I aim to keep her as happy and healthy as possible and she always is, like she literally smiles at you, which can be a bit unnerving for some:

But come on look at that face, who could say no?

I hope you enjoyed this little look into my love life (sad isn’t it?) and please do remember a dog is for life, not just for Christmas. I also really hope you have enjoyed this years Blogmas, to commemorate the end I uploaded a video to my YouTube Channel (NatsChatsTV) answering some more christmassy questions and now it just leaves me to say. Merry Christmas and I hope you have a magical New Year! Love you all – Natalie

Blogmas Day 21: New Years Resolution Reflection

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you will know that at the beginning of the WA I made a blog post titled: “Happy New Year my darling” where I stated 3 New Years resolutions I made for the year 2016. And today I looked back on it and realised that I actually did pretty damn well.

My first resolution was to “get that summer bod” which okay was a huge flop. This year I left school and so no longer had to do any type of fitness or sport in school. So basically have done nothing all year and am the most unhealthy I have ever been. So yeah that is definitely gonna be a resolution to make next year aswell. I’m not even gonna attempt to try and get fit by the end of the year because 1) I have 10 days and 2) it’s Christmas so I plan to eat and be lazy along with most other people. I did get a exercise bike this year though so do have the possibility of getting fit. Also I have a new found love for Yoga and meditation which although won’t get you ripped af, will help you tone and get your mental health in shape.

My second New Years Resolution was to get a job and I can safely say MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! It may be a Christmas temp job which will more that likely end in January but I still got one. And I just realised that I have had 2 Jobs prior to this as well as a handful of interviews which will hopefully boost my confidence for job searches in the future. For those interested I worked in a advertising agency for Tribute acts early in the year and a vintage online clothing line in the summer and now work at a shop which I will not name because I don’t want them to fire me.

My last resolution for the year that’s passed was to save up some money and buy a camera. This one is by far the best accomplished one. Through the first half of the year I saved up all by own money and then went out and bought myself a half decent camera which I did Infact take to both Tenerife and Thailand (which you may know if you are subscribed to my YouTube Channel – NatsChatsTV. It has proven very useful and great for taking photos. I have recently noticed though that there is an odd hollow sound in the background of filming which you only hear when filming something quiet (not a concert though) so have no idea what that is all about. But yes this year a kicked off my YouTube channel which although had not proven to be overly popular, is great fun and something I hope to carry on.

Looking back at the resolutions I made scares me a little bit cause it shows how fast time has flies. This has been a ridiculously busy year for me and I feel like I have never grown up more in a short amount of time in my life. For example if you looked at the person I was at the beginning of the summer and the person I am now you would never think they had met, let alone were the same person. I have definetly grown up a lot and think that I am a mostly more happy person.

Please do let me know if you too stuck to your resolutions or not in the comments.

Here’s to 2017!

Merry Blogmas
