Welcome back: 2018 Plans

Hello everybody and welcome to the most depressing month of the year.

The festivities are all but over, the food has all been eaten and now you’re left: fat, broke and maybe a little drunk. January is literally the hangover month. But the good news is all the pain of last year is over and you get to welcome in 2018 with all your chubbiness.

I am joking because although some of you may have put on a tinsey bit of weight, dont worry about it. It’s just evidence of a great December, besides all the stress of january will probably burn it all off again.

I just wanted to write this post to let you know I am still alive, just took a little break over the last month.

But lets get on to my plans for this year cause thats always exciting

I have some very large exams this year that will most likely decide my future and start the next stage of my life (whatever that may be). I will try my absolute hardest to get a post out every week but a pre-warning that this may prove highly difficult during May and June… so forgive me for that little period. If you have any suggestions or offers of blog post ideas you would like to see here on NatsChats do let me know and I promise that now I have an actual working phone I will be updating Instagram regularly with…may I add…a brand new theme (*crowd ooooohhhhhs*)

I feel like this could be the year we finally expand the natschats family as I really would like to take this blog seriously.

In the next few days do keep a look out for my 2017 video I will be uploading to YouTube

I will be doing a separate New Years Resolution reflection post very soon also as I know you guys always enjoy them…

I hope you all got some time off recently and are pushing your way through January well (its nearly over!)

Love you lots

Xx

12 Days of Natsmas: PLAN (1)

HAPPY 2 YEARS TO NATSCHATS ON WORDPRESS!!!

Hello my lovelies, and Welcome to the first day of Natsmas!!!

That’s right, I didn’t think I could hack the full 24 days of blogmas however, 12 days seems much more manageable and I even get to throw in a play on words.

So day one of Natsmas as you can see by the above title is a plan, I thought this would be a good idea so that everyone reading would be able to get excited with me about all the lovely stuff we have coming up!

If you have any further suggestion, I am open to all ideas as I do have a bit of room to move stuff around, but, for now, here is the line up for the next 11 days UNTIL XMAS!!!

2) Fave Baubles and Decorations

3) Surviving Awkward Christmas moments

4) Xmas Presents

5) Christmas Outfits (Formal and (Party)

6) Top Christmas Movies

7) Fave Christmas Food

8) Christmas Cocktails/Mocktails

9) Day in the life

10) Get ready with me: Winter Edition

11) Christmas Baking Recipe

12) Top Christmas songs 2017 (Case study ratings by a series of people from different age groups)

Phew! That’s alotta work to do, I better get cracking. The twelfth day Christmas song challenge has already taken up a lot of time and I am very excited to see the results myself, if you would like to be part of it please do let me know and I will sent you the list! There will be a few videos over on YouTube to go along with some of these Blog Posts if you fancy giving them a watch, so keep an eye out.

Also, I would just like to say sorry about the lack of Instagram posts but that is because I have had to delete Instagram for a little while, I should have it back after Natsmas tho so it will be back again for 2018!

How crazy is it that there’s less than a month left of 2017, it feels like only a few weeks ago I was welcoming it and now its over. I am scared, but also very happy to see what the new year bring as I can guarantee it will be one of the most eventful years of my young life. I will keep you updated every step of the way though!

See you tomorrow,

Xx

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

Well Hello There…

Hey,

Im Natalie and Welcome to my first ever post on this blog. I think I should start off by saying a bit about myself: I’m a teen girl who’s in that awkward stage in everyone’s life where they have to think about the dreaded F word. Thats right FUTURE!!! My main focuses should technically be revising so I can get the best possible grades…but there’s just one slight problem…

…I dont want to. I understand that its important for the next stage in your life but there are so many other things I’d much rather be doing than sitting at my laptop and typing a…oh wait thats what im doing right now for fun. But you see its different, I actually enjoy writing and love knowing that other people might be reading. This is why I started blogging in the first place.

In my blog I will be talking about my life, keeping you up to date and hopefully giving you some useful life hacks in the process. If you have any suggestions of something else you want to see, feel free to leave me a message. Also I have no idea how this WordPress thing works so if anyone wants to…you know…HELP ME!!! Then it would be very much appreciated.

Anyway thats all for today, if you have any comments or questions im sure there is some sort of comment box or something like that (I havent worked that out yet…whoops). I WILL READ ALL NO MATTER HOW CRAZY YOU THINK THEY ARE!

See you soon

Love, Nats
