New Year, New Me?

I know, someday I'll actually post a post when I said I would. And on that day fire will fall from the sky, pigs will fly and my boy will finally pick up his socks. 

HI! Excuse the incredibly cringy title. I hope you all had a glorious Christmas and a wonderful New Year! I hope you ate too much food, slept through all of the Christmas TV specials and made many New Year's Resolutions that you'll have forgotten about come February. I had lots of very exciting posts planned out buuuuttttt then I didn't write them, so there's that. Just know they were very interesting and you would've loved them. 

This isn't a filmy type post, but it is to do with where I want this little space of the internet I can call my own (for a small annual fee) to go. 2014 was, in basic terms, a really shitty year. Like, super shitty. I lost two of the most important people in my life, who I loved and adored like it was nobody's business. It made December a rough month. A month I have always looked forward to more than anything became something to dread because I knew come Christmas, two pieces of my family puzzle were missing and that was hard for me to take. Very confusingly though, at the same time I was so excited because it was my first Christmas with Stefan. I don't mean like our first Christmas ever because we've been together for hella long, I mean it was out first Christmas in our flat, with a tree and presents and a big dinner. We decided to have our own Christmas away from home before heading back because we knew how hard it would be to go back home and carry on like everything was fine. So this was our little piece of Christmas heaven. And it was. It was, without a doubt, one of the best, happiest days of my whole entire life because the love of a lifetime asked me to marry him! I told him I'd think about it, but after like an hour I thought 'why not?!' (I'm totally kidding, I cried like an absolute MOFO and threw myself at him. Even I was a little embarrassed, poor lad didn't see it coming!). So we went home and a Christmas I had been panicking about and stressing about, turned out to be one of the happiest, yet most bittersweet experiences of my life. 

After that life update, onto the blog/resolution business. Every year I make resolutions, and every single year I fail miserably. I don't know why, maybe I'm just too stubborn for my own good. As soon as someone tells me I have to do something, I immediately rebel and do EVERYTHING ELSE. This year, I've decided to not do resolutions and instead set goals, which is all very Pinterest/Tumblr/Instagram of me, but that shit is happening anyway. I figure a goal is something that I can work towards, not something I have to achieve in a year, something that will benefit me in the long run. At least, that's what I'm telling myself! So, this all brings me to the blogging bit. From the start of my blog, I knew I wanted to talk about films. I love films, films make me happy; they give me passion and they give me something to work towards. Buuuttttt they aren't the only thing I love. I love television (even I'm amazed at how many shows I can watch in a go), I love books, I love music, I love makeup and I love writing. I also love interior design and decorating, but I'm not sure how I'd fit that into the blog haha. I have been incredibly lax on actually posting this year, and I think it's because I have limited myself to a small focus. Films are something I can, and have, talked about for hours, but I'm not sure that my babbling is entertaining to that many people? So I'd like to branch out into other things I love and hopefully bring more people into the Becca Button world. Because I'll be frank, that is an aim for this year, I want to make this year the year my blog grows and becomes something I can be proud of. I know the last thing the internet needs is another beauty blog (although I freaking LOVE reading them), but I am VERY dedicated to makeup. Too dedicated, according to my bank balance. 

I hope you come along for this new year trying new things and I hope you enjoy them! And if you have an suggestions of things you'd like to see, you can drop me a comment below, or find me at any of my social media at the side. OR you can email me, which you can find under Contact. Have a fabulous day you wonderful people, be nice and be kind :).
