Aztec Mess in 2016

I, along with everyone else it seems, find the lull between Christmas and New Year a strange time. I'm not sure what to do with myself. I'm lucky that I managed to book this time off work so I'm still at home with my family which is great. But I do feel like I'm just slobbing around, I have eaten crap and drank what feels like endless bottles of wine. I just keep telling myself that the health kick starts on the 1st.

Christmas has been a lovely time with family and delicious food, reunions with school friends and more presents than I could have wished for. Including these gorgeous Kurt Geiger boots. I hope you all got spoilt this Christmas and managed to spend some quality time with friends and family.

While I've not got much going on, I've been planning some fun things for my blog for 2016. I feel like I got a bit lost with it this year and wasn't really sure where I wanted to take my content. Hopefully 2016 will see good things, I want to go back to my blog being my hobby and worrying less about the business side of things.

Some of the goals for Aztec Mess in 2015

1. Improve my photography and my writing skills.

I know I'm never going to be the best writer and I always want my blog to be written in a colloquial style as that's my favourite style to read but I think I can definitely improve and take more time when writing my posts.

2. Re-design my blog

I have had this design for quite a while, and I do still love it but I think it's time for a change. I just need to find somewhere that will do it for less than £50 ideally. Any recommendations would be great.

3. Only accept sponsored posts or PR gifts that are truly right for my blog

I found myself accepting PR gifts in exchange for a post without really thinking about whether it would have a positive impact on my blog. I think this is easy to do, all those emails offering you a freebie seem so appealing and exciting, but I know that some of the things I have accepted haven't been right and the posts don't seem natural at all.

Are there things you're changing for your blogs in 2016? Or anything specific you'd like to see change on Aztec Mess?
