I'm not really one for New Year's resolutions. I've never thought much of the idea of setting goals for the upcoming year which are often forgotten about by the end of January but like everyone I do reflect on what I've achieved in the year that's passed. 2016 was a good year but 2017 promises to be a pretty major one for me. Rather than making resolutions I decided to write a list of what I hope to have achieved in 2017 and open it this time next year to see how many goals I accomplished - if I don't lose it, that is. I don't want to share the whole list at present, but I thought I would briefly talk through some of my hopes and plans for this year and perhaps inspire others looking to do something similar.

2017 is the year that I will graduate after 3 years of studying Fashion Management. The years have flown past and I can't believe I will shortly begin my Final Major Project then my time at university will be over come summer. Those who know me well know how conscientious I am and therefore how important it is to me to work hard over these next few months to achieve the outcome I want regarding my degree.

Closely linked to my previous point, I am currently beginning to look for employment upon finishing university. I would love to find a job within branded womenswear buying or luxury wholesale in 2017 and am focused on putting my all into every job application. I'm not ruling out doing more internships but it would be amazing to get a paid full-time job once I graduate, which would also most likely mean moving out - two exciting prospects for the new year. It's a tough process but remaining optimistic and determined is definitely key.
