My New Year's Resolutions! (Hair & Blog- related)

Heyy guys! Long time no post!
I hope you've all had a lovely Christmas break.
It's that time again where we all make resolutions for the forthcoming year to ensure we make it better than the last. As you may recall, this time last year I shared my blog related and hair related new years resolutions (see post here), and so I thought it'd be good to go through them and check off what I have achieved and what I haven't before I present you with my new list.

Last years resolutions:
1. Blog more frequently.
From my opening sentences it's safe to say that I didn't really fulfill this resolution. Like most resolutions, I was right on the ball at the beginning of the year before it shamelessly began to fizzle out :S

2.Trim my hair! I've been putting it off for so long.
I did manage to have a trim, if you can call it that. With my transition I have been trimming (a bit too) often.

3. Make a U-part wig.
I haven't shared this with you guys yet, but I did indeed make a U-Part wig but it turned out to be a big FAIL lol. After all that sewing it actually didn't fit on my head, plus I had put the parting on the wrong side. I have since dismantled (is that the right word? haha) the wig. Ah well... I tried.

4. Decide once and for all whether I want to start making YouTube videos
I think I've decided that I am going to make videos now and again to support my blog posts if I feel they fit. I'm definitely not ready to make a channel yet. Now I just need to decide when to start... lol

5. Be more consistent with my hair treatments, especially hot oil treatments.
I can cross this out with no hesitation. I managed to fit in a hot oil treatment into my regimen and I now do them once a week (sometimes even twice). And, ever since the cold hit I've been on it with my DIY DC's

6. To experiment with different hairstyles. My staple hairstyle has been a bun ever since I can remember. 
I have hardly really rocked a bun this year. My transition has meant that I have been able to experiment and perfect my braid outs and twist outs. Also, the majority of the year I've had my hair in braids and I have been able to experiment with different forms from the regular box braid to senegalese twists to marley twists. 

Ok so now for my next set of new years resolutions:
1. To cut off all of my relaxed ends
2. To perfect my hair care routine
3. Attend hair/ blogger events

So what are your new years resolutions? Did you manage to fulfill last years? Feel free to share them below.
Oh and in other news my blog turned two years old in October! And I missed it :(
I just want to say thank you all for all of your support this year :D
Take care, and hope you all have a great new years!
