Welcome 2017

It’s 2017! Happy New Year everybody!

2016 literally flew by and it only feels like yesterday since I woke up on January 1st 2016 with the biggest hangover of my life. Entering 2017 was no different either, I spent the night with Matt, Mac, Callum, Jack, Foz, Arron, James and Lewis getting very drunk and thoroughly enjoying the last night of 2016. We spent the evening in Aberystwyth town with many others and had a excellent night full of dancing, singing and drinking. I’m not one for nights out but I really enjoyed spending quality time with some of my best friends and specially entering another new year with Matthew by my side. 

During the month of December I’ve been thinking about what I want to do to make 2017 a better year. So, for the first time ever I’ve made a few new year’s resolutions, let’s just hope I stick to them. I’ve decided to share them with you guys and throughout the year update you on how I’m getting on with them. It’ll be a total failure if I end up messing them up. I haven’t made too many as I don’t want to be too overwhelmed with trying to maintain them and I’ve made them quite realistic too so that I’ll be able to actually achieve them. So, here is a list of my new years resolutions for 2017, let me know what yours are in the comments. 

1-  I’d like to have a more positive outlook on life. 

Like most I have a habit of expressing my negativity when I find something or someone has annoyed me. I’d like to be a bit  more positive when it come to things that annoy me. Rather than seeing it as irritating I’d like to have a different outlook on it and think of how things could be worse therefore it’s not as annoying as I would have found it. 

2 – Exercise more. 

Since being a third year student I find that I’m so busy and I become so stressed very easily. It’s a known fact that exercise can help to reduce stress and help you to become happier and relaxed. Whether it be going to the gym or playing a sport, I would like to spend a few hours a week exercising. This will probably contribute towards my next resolution. 

3- Lose a small amount of weight. 

As happy as I am with my body, I’d like to lose around a stone in weight for my health. I personally don’t mind being curvy and embrace what I have. I was definitely more confident with my body when I was stone lighter and I’d like to get back to that place before the summer comes around. 

4- Be more sociable.

So many people believe that I’m an extrovert but in reality, I’m actually an introvert. I spend a lot of my time alone as I like my own company and I often find being around people for too long quite suffocating. However, I’ve realised that I should make more of an effort to spend time with my friends and go out more (I rarely drink and go on nights out, it’s just not my thing).

Bridget Jones’s Baby // Review

Last night my friend, Liz and I went to see the newly released film, Bridget Jones’s Baby. I wasn’t disappointed at all, it’s full of love, laughter and added sarcasm for that extra buzz. It’s also totally realistic and relates to so many woman across the world, not just us British ladies. So, to read my review of the lady herself , carry on!

I’ve been a huge fan of Bridget Jones since I first watched them at the age of 14 and I loved her then and I love her more now. She is utterly brilliant and reminds me of myself on so many levels. To me, she is truly iconic character and just doesn’t fail to make me laugh, cry and generally blow up with excitment. The first two films were bloody brilliant, they’re both a classic example of a British rom-com and the new movie just fits in perfectly. Bridget is simply a modern British woman who creates some tricky situations for herself, fails at living the single life and has some horrible bad habits. In hope to change her life , she plans to stop smoking, quit drinking and focus on living a healthier lifestyle but like all woman in this day and age, has some slip-ups. In the newly released film, it skips 12 years into her life and Bridget is now a single mother-to-be, whilst still getting herself into difficult situations. This one being bigger than usual as she doesn’t know who the father of her child is between the love of her life and ex, Mark or the handsome new addition to her life, Jack.

The new film Bridget Jones Baby is fantastic. Normally I find that sequels to films aren’t ever on the same level as the first but all three of the Bridget Jones films are brilliant. They each compliment each other and the franchise perfectly, whilst they all represent the modern woman and how having a love for food and embracing bad habits is totally acceptable. Of all the ways the writers could have portrayed Bridget, Renee Zellweger creates and plays the character so well that I actually forget Bridget isn’t a real person. Renee also has an excellent British accent and clearly works hard to make Bridget the character that she is.

It’s absolutely and utterly brilliant and I didn’t stop laughing from the beginning until the end. In fact, I’ve not seen a film quite like it this year yet. Its made an excellent edition to the Bridget Jones series and I believe it to be a brilliant end to the collection. However, I wouldn’t ever turn down another new film as long as its as brilliant as the first three.

Let me know what you thought of the film, did you love it as much as I did?

With love, B x
