Thursday Thoughts

Well it has been a long ass time since I liked up for Thursday Thoughts hell its been forever since I linked up to anyone so I thought why the heck not so here I am linking up with my friends Jen over at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom :) If you want to see the Queen of Subscription box reviews you better get your butt over there!!

- It's Pay day tomorrow and 90% of it has already been spent on bills. If this is what being grown up in like I don't want it, take it back Id like to go back to not having to think of money haha

- I'm pretty sure my candle obsession has hit extreme I said this trip tot he US I wouldn't buy any candles because well I don't need any and well then Bath and Body Works happened and then I ended up in Yankee Candle oh dear :/

- I will be joining the Gym in Feb and I cant wait although I am pretty terrified at the same time haven't been to an actually gym in a while Ive always just worked out at home or go running but my ass needs to step it up!

- I want snow! I am so sick of seeing everyone else post about the snow and we still have nothing :( It was meant to snow today but nope its now raining yet again!

- I have so many TV shows to finnish its getting stupid how many I start get half way through and just go onto another one lol The ones I can think of off the top of my head are: PLL (last season), Face Off, Breaking Bad, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Hart of Dixie (1st Season).

- I finally signed up to Hulu Plus after 8 weeks of my US bank account messing up my debit card and OMG so many shows haha

That's it for Thursday Thought and I hopefully will keep up with this for once :)

Why is it that when I travel its never easy??

I know I have already broken 2 of my New years goals and that was to upload on my Youtube Channel 3 times a week and to regularaly blog on here and well its nearly February and I have blogged like 3 times maybe. 

Ill be honest I went back to the Colorado to see my sister now before anyone thinks wait weren't you there for most of October and well yes I was. My sister and I decided a week before we left last trip that screw it we will come out in Jan its close to Christmas and our oldest sisters birthday, It was only a 10 day trip and well it was bascially free. 
We decided to use our miles that over the years we had collected so instead of our usual route of LHR --> DFW --> COS on American Airlines we risked it and flew British Airways (I never have any luck with these guys unfortunately) LHR --> BOS --> DFW --> COS and well that went to crap before we had even taken off from London.

I wont go on and on about it but we left 2 hours late from London which meant before we landed in Boston we got rushed into first class (pretty fancy I must say) so we could get rushed through Immigration and baggage claim to connect to our Dallas Flight. Well that went to crap when It took us 45 mins to get our bags from the flight and got on a bus to our terminal 2 mins before our flight left. Anyway long story short met a lovely lady while on that bus who reminded me a lot of Will's mother from Will & Grace haha and our Dallas flight didn't actually come in so we went through what felt like 100 different security check points and ended up on a JetBlue flight to Denver and driving back to the Springs. 

I will add that the same problem we had on our BA flight to Boston that delayed us for 2 hours is the same problem we had on our Denver flight that delayed us for 1 hour I mean serious I have the WORST luck with traveling!

Sooooo after all my ramblings here are some pictures from the trip :)

While I was away my Team the New England Patriots Played the Denver Brocos and well lost so I was the Red, White & Blue in a seas of Orange haha

Even the Doggies were in their Orange and Ellie Mae had her nails done hehe

So yes today if the first day I have had off work since I got back last Thursday so the blogging will begin again tomorrow :)

A New Year, A New Me?.......

Well Its that time of the year when everyone makes those crazy things called New Year Resolutions, no doubt everyone has seen friends post that 2014 is the new them etc etc but usually by February most (like myself) have given up on them and gone back to old habits.

Last year I decided not to have resolutions but rather to set myself goals some I completed some I started and some I just failed miserably at but that's okay :)

I again this year decided to create a list of thing I would like to accomplish in 2014 and here are some of them.

1. Loose 50lb. 
I know this may seem a lot but its really what I need to do to be in the range that mean little chart they have for you height says. I have been working out and slowly loosing weight over the last 2 years but I really need to step it up! I know this might all not happen in the 12 month time frame but I hope to hit as close as possible to that goal :) This will be combined with my second goal for this year is to make smoothies. Ideally I want to be having a breakfast and lunch smoothies and then have a balanced dinner but we will see how that works out. I will also be a member of the Gym in Feb/March so excited :D

2. Consistently Blog & Upload. 
Over the last year I have blogged on and off and I love doing it, this year I really want to step up my game and upload to my channel 3 days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and Blog 3 - 4 times a week. For a little while I managed to blog 5 times a week over the last year but things get in the way and I and I get stuck on what to blog about. Let me know what you would like to see be post about :)

3.  Read More.
Last year I decided I wanted to read 1 book a month and well I still haven't finished the book I started last January..... So instead of 1 a month I just want to make more effort to read more in general. I have a bunch of books I have bough for plane journeys and I haven't even turned the first page on them, I have a kindle and iPad so I have no excuse for not reading this coming year!

4. Be Debt Free.
I never did go to University (although some times I wish I had) so I cant even say my debt is from that I just got a credit card at 18 and started putting things on it I wanted when I didn't have the money in my account. I know that was a pretty dumb thing to do but luckily my CC has a pretty low limited so I am less that £1000 in debt. I know some might think why do I still buy things like makeup/clothes and go to the USA so much and that because it isn't a huge number and I don't worry about it that much plus I do pay something off it each month. So although its not a stupid amount Id just like not to have it :)

5. Be Happy.
2013 wasn't a horrific year or anything for me but it was an up and down year for me. While I had some really good times this past year it unfortunately had a lot of stress, worry and uncertainty work wise and that put a damper on a lot even friends and family noticed how miserable I was and I am a usually very happy person. I hope that 2014 brings a change with that. I also need to stop letting other peoples moods affect my own I have lost count how many times I have been in an amazing mood but then someone comes along in a shitty one and all of a sudden Ive lost my happy!

6. Do Things!
This kind of covers a few different points in my list. I was to go to at least 1 NFL International Series game in Wembley at the end of this year, I want to attend IMAT's, I want to look into either a course or school to study makeup artistry and maybe FX makeup.

All in all I just want 2014 to be an awesome year where big things happen!!

Do you have any New Years goals or resolutions? Leave a comment and let me know I would love to see what all you guys are doing :)
