What 2012 means to me...

I promise this will be my last new years related post!

Being away for the Christmas / New Year break and some busy work weeks prior to that means that I have lots of catching up on my blog reading to do.  My Google Reader is a bit out of control!

My favourite blogs are full at the moment of reflection and new years resolutions and goals.  So I'll jump on the bandwagon... for me the start of 2011 was up and down - pretty crap with some amazing highlights in between but it did (and for so many I know) get a lot better as the year progressed.  So to kick off 2012, some of my goals for this year are:

1. Get back into my fitness routine and finally do that half marathon I have been talking about running instead of just signing up for them and then not training / chickening out :)

2. Go to bed earlier - sleep more

3. Just accept there are certain things I can't control and try not to stress out  / overthink / overanalyse / try to fix things I can't fix!

4.  Stress less, work less (hopefully!)

5.  Most importantly, spend more time / keep in contact with the ones I love.

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Japan love...

Some friends of ours are currently holidaying in Japan (they were also our wedding photographers and have an awesome blog here. If you are getting married I definitely recommend them)...
Anyhow, I have been reading their tweets and status updates and am reminiscing and dreaming about Japan.  I spent a year in Sapporo on exchange whilst at uni and have visited Japan I think at least 4 other times... it has been about 2 years since my last visit so perhaps another one is due soon?!?!  There is just something about the place that I love - perhaps it is the memory of some amazing times, the delicious and unique food, the shopping or the wonderful people... I can't put my finger on it but you MUST get there if you haven't already.  
On shopping, some of my must visit stores are:

Uniqlo:  Your one stop shop for basics.  They have also partnered with many designers, companies, artists for the UT project - limited edition tshirts.   UT t-shirts are available in all Uniqlo stores but c…
