A few weeks before the New Year I was thinking about 2014 and what I want to achieve. I realised that with the completion of my degree, hopefully getting a job, and aiming to start a Youtube channel, it's going to be a pretty huge year for me! During 2013, blogging has become a lovely hobby for me, and I want to continue that through 2014. I've found myself wanting a lot of things which will help me with blogging and starting Youtube, so here they are:
1. A Macbook Pro. My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to receive the 'Youtuber' camera, the Cannon EOS 600D for Christmas, and my poor old laptop is simply not up to editing the amazing photos and HD videos you can get from it! I've wanted to convert to the world of Apple for years, and I feel like this is the year to invest (especially since I will get the student discount!)
2. Soft-Boxes. Since getting the gorgeous 600D, I've been teaching myself about 3 point lighting, and want to get two soft-boxes to help achieve this for photos and videos.
3. Ikea Malm Dressing Table. My makeup storage situation is getting way out of hand, and I've been wanting a nice dressing table that also includes storage for a long time. It will also provide a nice surface for taking blog photos, and potentially a Youtube backdrop as well! This 'wish' also kind of includes entirely redoing the spare room in my house since the plan is to move in there when I return home after completing my degree! My little bedroom at the moment is teeny and would not fit the desk or soft-boxes!
4. Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. I can't believe I haven't tried this cult blogger product yet! 2014 will be the year I include this in my skincare routine!
I'm going to be saving really hard this year to afford these things! What's on your wishlist for this year?
