Hello 2018...New Year, New Me?

I'm well aware that I am jumping on the blog/vlog bandwagon in creating this post but who cares YOLO and all that. Is that still a thing by the way?

I recently filmed my resolution video  recently, which will be going up soon on my YouTube channel however, I wanted to write down a few things too as a written reminder of a few key points.

I have thoroughly enjoyed restarting my blog from scratch towards the end of 2017. I like that I can look back at the really awkward post from years gone by but without having the whole world being able to see them, which was what was annoying me before.
The fact that I now have a relativly "new" blog again I feel has given me a little bit more freedom to do what I want and not care about anything else. Therefore in this new year, I am going to attempt to continue putting content up for whoever wants to read it. I think I shall keep the mix of life, chat and beauty posts up, which I know is not conforming to a niche like every blogger should but I'm not every blogger I'm me!

I again have enjoyed (for the most part) filming and editing my videos for my three channels. At the current moment I upload twice a week on The Clare Necessities, once a week on The Theatre Necessities and either daily or weekly on The Vlog Necessities depending on which month it is. I love my vlog channel because it helps me to store my memories somewhere of the good things I want to remember in years to come. My "main" channel gives me a space to talk all things beauty and the theatre channel gives me a place to share my undying love of theatre and musicals with whoever listens. I plan to keep up with all three channels in 2018, so please subscribe to all of them to keep up to date.

On top of being ever so present online, I vow that 2018 will be the year that I look after me. I often put everyone and everything in front of myself and that has left me in some very sticky head spaces. I need to remember that although I really enjoy it all, my blog and youtube channels are merely hobbies and I do not gain any monetary help for doing it. If I forget an upload, so be it. If I'm not feeling like tapping the keys and writing a blog post, so be it.
Instead of stressing about those kind of things, I will instead endeavour to make more memories, spend as much time as I can with my good friends and do more of the things I enjoy.
I'd also love to travel again this year. In the past two years, I've been to New Zealand and Norway and when I'm away because I'm exploring new places and taking lots of pictures I am happy in myself and enjoying life. For that reason alone, surely I should travel again?

2018 isn't going to be the year for a new me, because I like the me I am. Instead I want 2018 to be the year for a better me. In 2017, I improved my daily water intake and I felt so much better and my skin appreciated it too. In 2018, I want to continue to drink more water, whilst exercising (and maybe even embracing the gym more) and just improve me and hopefully keep my head space healthy.

Happy New Year everyone.
