The London Tag!

Hello everyone! Here's a tag I saw floating around YouTube and it was one I just couldn't say no too! As I was born in London, grew up for most of my childhood in London and visit there regularly  I thought it was a very fun tag to do. I had great fun filming it and I hope you have as much joy watching it!

Bring it on, 2013.

Goodbye 2012! Hello 2013! At the start of every year it is a tradition to set your self goals to follow throughout the year to come. A good way to start thinking of these goals is too look back at the past year and list the things you liked about your self and the things that you didn't like as much. In my case there were things that I really loved and want to carry on, but also aspects that I want to improve on.

Go for the healthier option 
As it has just been Christmas, I feel it is time I went back to the healthier options and less mince pies! It isn't a bad thing to occasionally indulge in a yummy chocolate bar or packet of crisps, but overall staying away from them is a better idea. The biggest problem with me isn't the meal, I eat rather healthy meals, it’s the snacking that’s the problem! When I feel like a little snack to tide me over I want to go for something that will benefit me more than not. Instead of a chocolate bar, I will eat some low fat yogurt and instead of crisps, some nuts.

Do my very best at school 
I am quite happy with how school went last year, however I want to try even harder this year. I heard someone say that I have less than two years to go! This scared me quite a bit and I don’t want to throw it all away and wish I did better. I want to look back at my work and be able to be proud of myself!

do not worry 
I have the unfortunate habit of worrying a lot about the littlest things that should not get me. The worrying doesn't just bring me down at the time I’m worrying, but also has an impact on me even days after. As this affected my life in a bad way last year, I don’t want it to happen anymore! It isn't something that will go away immediately, but my goal is not to worry about silly little things. The picture below is one a friend showed me that I thought was very true and helpful.

The worry diagram, there is no need to worry!

                                     ♥ Make my loved ones around me happy 
I don’t just want to make goals that will only benefit me, but also the people I love. There are lots of amazing and important people that are in my life that make me happy! I want to return this and be the best person I can be towards them too. In the end, this will make me happy as I’m making others around me happy, and make me a better person! 

Blog and Vlog more 
Over the year of 2013, I want blog and vlog a lot more! I want to blog at least one Outfit Of The Day a week, and another post if I have time. I want to upload a video on my Youtube channel at least once every two weeks. It may not seem like it but blogging is very time consuming. You must write up what you want to share, take the photos and then edit them! Even though I love doing it, it’s the time that is the issue. The same goes from youtube videos, time! I am going to try and make more time for it!

I hope to keep to these goals and overall become a better person for myself! I wish you all a happy new year and good luck with your new year's resolutions! xoxo monicaalicee

Outfit Of The Day Christmas Day

Hello everyone! I hope every single one of you had a very merry Christmas and a fabulous new year's eve! The reason this Christmas look is a tad late and I have not blogged in a little while is because I took a two week break from blogging as it was Christmas time. I went to back home to London and spent a time with my family and friends, which I am sure you all did too!

When I was in London for my school trip, I tried on this very sparkly dress in the big Topshop in Oxford Street, however did not buy it. I regretted it though, so ordered it almost imminently when I got back! I am so  happy I did buy it in the end because I find it is perfect for Christmas and New Years because of the green and sequins.

I am not wearing shoes in the pictures because I never left the house on Christmas, but I would have paired the dress with my trusty Litas! I did bring them with me just never put them on! I wore some black tights because it was December and very cold, so I was warm! For make up I went for the classic winged eye and red lips. I did not want to go too bold as the dress was the statement piece!

I hope you enjoyed this look, and it would much appreciated if you would follow my blog and hype on Look Book (www.lookbook.nu/monicaalicee)!
