here's to the new year


Happy New Year! I hope 2012 brings you all joy and exciting new opportunities! 
Here are a few Resolutions (that I most definitely intend to keep):
♥ Try to write in my journal every day
♥ Be more organised. As much I am organisedthere is always room for improvement... I guess my main weakness is putting off homework... 
♥ Build my thrifted/ vintage collection. I want to start op-shopping a lot more often than I do!
♥ Continue ballet lessons and start Jazz!
♥ Improve my confidence, independence and self-esteem. 
♥ Get drawing lessons/ art lessons. I want to improve my sketching skills and hopefully design myself a new blog header. 
♥ Get a job and save up for my first DSLR!
♥ Have a happy and rewarding year. 

I was going to do a 'the year that was' post but I think I'll save that for May, when I celebrate having Avenue M for 2 years. I'm so very grateful for you all and I can't express how much I love being part of the blogosphere!

P.S: Do you like the daisy garlands that my sisters and I made for my Aunty and Uncle? We went over their house yesterday and made the prettiest chains to place on the bookshelf (daisy chains attract fairies, did you know?). I love my Aunty and Uncle's house so much, the decor and furniture is mostly vintage and makes the house feel special and homey. The garden is beautiful too, I think I counted about a million daisies!

These resolutions sound so much like mine! Wow haha. I too really want to keep up a journal, and document this year. And of course I would love a job (to save up for big ticket items like a DSLR) more op shopping is a great idea too:)

I wish you the best of luck, lovely Maria, on the new year. I'm sure you will be successful in anything you do.

xx Carina

Two years- how excellent! today is my first week, but I suppose we all must start somewhere.
I adore your style, it is lovely and those chains are so very adorable.
( the fact that wo made the fairy comment was like a little whimsical deja vu from my own love of fairytales)

Love Alexandra
