HAPPY NEW YEAR BEAUTIFUL!
I hope that you’re New Year went with a bang and that your are ready to smash your new years resolutions whatever they may be for 2017. This post is all about my 5 2017 resolutions for my blog – The Beauty Analyst.
Welcome to my blog if you have never visited before! I started this blog back in June 2016 due to a huge love of anything beautiful (mainly makeup). I then decided in October 2016 that my blog should also include lifestyle posts – therefore this blog is a beauty and lifestyle blog!
In 2017 I want to adapt and evolve my blog to suit me and my life! This will include new beauty and lifestyle themed posts, improving my social media accounts and most of all providing weekly content on my blog which is current and up to date! Therefore I have set myself the following 5 goals for 2017:
1.Post every week with current and interesting beauty or lifestyle content:
I have planned at least 1 post each week to be published on my blog until May’17 (in march I will update my list he-he). This will fit in with the seasons and see new things come to my blog in months that I haven’t blogged in before!. I’m particularly looking forward to blogging in spring and for valentines day! Also I turn 24 in march so expect the odd birthday post too!
2. Sort out my Instagram game:
Recently I have really been disappointed with my Instagram posts. I always nail it for a bit and then post anything and everything which ruins the theme that I’m trying to go for. I have now organised a continuous theme of photographs that I can use this year to make my Instagram reflect my blog. I also want to gain at least 500 followers this year on my Instagram, therefore I will be commenting on more posts and following more bloggers and making lots more insta friends!. Do you follow me? – you can find me ** HERE **… I promise it will improve over the next few months!
3. Meet some bloggers!
When I first started blogging I didn’t realise how lovely the blogging community was! After endless twitter chats (find my twitter here) and general conversations I have now made some lovely blogging friends and I cant wait to meet even more this year! I really want to attend a few meetups either in Essex where I currently live, London, or The Midlands where I am originally from! I think that I’ll be able to learn so much from other bloggers and make some great friends – let me know of any meetups you are going to!
4. Get in touch with some brands:
This goal is quite a big and daunting one for me. One that I think will take place in the second half of 2017. Last year I was contacted by Nivea – one of my favourite skincare brands and I absolutely loved reviewing some of their products for them. This year I would like to connect more with brands and be able to work with them. This would then mean that I can help my readers find the best (and worst) products that they can use to make themselves feel even more beautiful than they already are. If you are a brand who would like to get in touch my email is firstname.lastname@example.org – I’d love to be contacted by you for anything beauty or lifestyle.
5. Improve my photography skills:
In 2017 I would like to improve my current photography skills to provide better images on my blog and social media. At the moment I use my IPhone camera to take my pictures but I definitely think that I need a better camera this year to improve the quality of my photos. I also want to improve my ‘flat laying’ skills and always ensure that I have plenty of natural light when taking my pictures! If you have any photography tips then leave me a comment below – I would appreciate anything!
What are your 2017 goals? I’d love to know – comment below or tweet me! Also my next post is my January Blues GIVEAWAY – so stay tuned as you’re all going to love it!
Hope all your dreams come true in 2017,
