End-of-financial-year resolutions

Greetings BusiChic,

I hope that you had a great weekend!

As mentioned in my last post, I celebrated my one-year anniversary with my boyfriend, Tim, who treated us to a getaway at Hotel Urban (yes we enjoyed it that much the first time round that we went back on our own!) and beautiful wine and cheese at Milk the Cow – a wonderfully dark and romantic venue for wine, beer, spirit and cheese lovers! The next night we boot scooted and dined on the most tender of meats at the Carnivores Ball, a very fun event put on by Jess of Burger Mary.

Part of our first year anniversary celebrations: boot scootin’ at the delicious Carnivores Ball!

It was the next day when we went for a big walk that I came to realise how ridiculously unfit I have become. Huffing and puffing away, I managed to put into words some end-of-financial-year resolutions I’d like to make which I’m going to document here to keep me totally accountable!

An interesting top and pencil skirt are usually fail-safe items for work…

Top: Cylk Adriatic Pullover (now on sale!) 

Skirt: Vivienne Westwood Anglomania skirt that I bought from The Outnet, here’s similar on sale at My Wardrobe

belt: my mother’s

shoes: Gorman <<note: these are crazy-uncomfortable but gosh I love how they are classic in colour and shape but have an unusual heel 🙁


End of Financial Year Resolutions:

While I don’t usually make New Year Resolutions, being the half-way point of the year, I figure that this is a great time to define how I’d like the rest of the year to pan out.

1. Get fit, toned and healthy 

Gosh darn it,  quite a number of my clothes aren’t fitting the way that I’d like them to like this new skirt (pictured above) I bought in the recent sales. I’m not in the position to buy a whole new wardrobe and I have always meant to get properly fit and toned so I’m starting a new fitness adventure today with a 21-day yoga challenge! My friend Emma from 30 Dollar Date has been even more glowy after completing a similar challenge last year – I can’t wait to feel as great as Emma looks! You go, girl!

2. Improve the internal dialogue

I’m so busy!” is a phrase that I find myself saying a lot. I’ve been getting some wonderful opportunities of late but feeling like I don’t have the time to fulfil them which is itself, frustrating! Click that link for some tips I’ll be trying to improve how I frame things for myself.

3. Engage the professionals:

I like to think that I’m doing ok at life on my own but I think that it helps to rack the brains of the professionals. Here are three resources I’m employing to help me work better with what I have and where I’d like to get to.

How was your weekend? Are there any new habits that you’ve formed recently or what are you looking to change? Anything that you can relate to here? How do you keep yourself accountable?
