How do you feel about New Year’s Resolutions? Every year, January 1st comes around and I feel like I’m bombarded with social media messages urging me to make a New Year’s Resolution and if I don’t, undoubtedly I will feel guilty about it. So, like many others I usually attempt to make some mediocre ‘diet’ or ‘weight-loss’ related resolutions. Ultimately, I then fail to adhere…

I’m daydreaming of the seaside and wishing I was sitting on the beach with a good book, a cold pina colada and fantastic nails!
