It's got to be 'Yes!'

Found on Pinterest!

So, a little post today. I'm sure many of you already have but just in case, you haven't then I want to urge you all to read a couple of posts by two other lovely bloggers.

I read this post by Zoe about a month ago, 'Just Say Yes' and this one from Lisette 'My 2012 half year to-do list' around the same time and I'm sure both of these posts have just given me that little push to make a bit more of life and do the things that I'm always thinking about but not actually doing.

Partly inspired by L and M from the C.S.I Beauty Blog and their 101 lists, I already had a list of what I wanted from 2012. Unfortunately come September and 3/4 of the way in to the year, virtually nothing was crossed off and then I read Zoe and Lisettes' posts and realised there was no reason to write off 2012 yet.

Found on Pinterest!
Since then I have . . .

* Had a small tattoo (or three teeny ones, to be precise)
* Had micropigmentation (semi-permanent make up!)
* Signed up for the London Marathon
* Thrown myself and my heart in to the blogging community and found some of you lovely lot, *waves* :))
* Completed a course of hypnosis sessions, aimed at giving me a little more zest, confidence and get up+go
* Oh and not forgetting, the Crayola "Masterpiece" (ahem, I might have another go) I've just created Milly style (see her post here).

I'm not sure how many of these things I actually would have bothered to see through if it hadn't been for the inspiration Lisette and Zoe served in their fantastic posts. They may only be little things but they've all made me smile and y'know when it comes down to it, you can't want much more from life then happy moments. :)

So if anyone wants a little shove in to living life again then I can not recommend a read of their posts enough. Just imagine what the future could hold!!!

Thank you! I've just been admiring your jewellery picks :)
I know, even though it is contrary to about 99% of my blog content, I love that quote and deep down, know it probably rings pretty true!!! Thanks for 'hopping' on to my little blog. xx

@Nicole Moseley
Yes, please, please do your own list. It's a real buzz as you start to tick things off.

I am going to do a list for 2013, there are still so many things I want to do. Love your blog! Now following, would love you to check out mine too. Naomi xx

I am also running a vintage giveaway to win a scarf and gold chain necklace.

Ooh, a list could be a great way to start the year better then the boring old, I will worker harder or I will lose x stone this year etc etc. Make sure your list includes lots of incentives like wearing three new bright lip colours or going to Paris. Ooh, already have Paris on mine but might just go and scribble the bright lip one down. I'm on a roll!!!
Thank you so soo much for following, I will deffo check out your blog tonight or tomorrow. xx
