I know I'm awfully late with this post but better late than never right?

I love new years! I love the feeling of starting over, the feeling of a fresh page or a blank slate as the case may be.

2016 was a bit of a roller coaster year for me with some very high highs and a couple of very low lows. However, it is a year that I'm extremely thankful for solely for the fact that it taught me strength that I didn't realize I was capable of. 

How did you find 2016?

I'm one of those cheesy people who always makes New Year Resolutions. It doesn't matter that I don't do some of them at all or that I give up on others well before mid-year, I don't let that deter my January 1st 'New year, new me' convictions.

Top of that this year is that I'm making a conscious effort to take things very easy. To be less anxious, to worry less, to complain less and to just breathe! So far, quite good!

Do you make new year resolutions? What are some of yours?

Currently, I'm reading Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding. A few pages into it and she itemizes her new year resolutions; one of which is - "I will not fall for any of the following: alcoholics, workaholics, commitment phobics, people with girlfriends or wives, misogynists, megalomaniacs, chauvinists, emotional fuckwits or perverts and freeloaders" 

For some reason, I had a hearty laugh at this and I knew that it was a book I wasn't going to be able to put down until I turned the very last page.

What are you currently reading?

My plans for the blog this year include a lot more collaborations (with other bloggers and brands), diversification of content (I hear some of you are tired of seeing just my face on the blog), more travel posts and most importantly, consistent but quality posts.

What more would you like to see? Please share with us in the comment section.

So,welcome back everyone. I hope you had an amazing holiday.

Happy 2017!
It's Tee
