Every new year brings with it the hope of making one's life better. "This year things will be different", "This year I am going to make things happen" or "this is going to be my year" are the phrases most commonly heard just before the clock strikes 12 and the old year gives way to a new one full of promise.
Whether we like to admit it or not, most of us do draw up a list of resolutions at the start of the new year. A list of promises made to oneself in order to add value to our existence; to make life easier, better, happier. After all, a new year is like a new start; a chance to improve, to re-invent and to rejuvenate.
Sadly once the euphoria of new years eve wears away, so does our resolve to fulfill each of our commitments. Going to the gym or planning that trip to some exotic locale gives way to our work/home schedules and before you know it its the approaching the end of the year again and you havent accomplished any of the goals you set for yourself!
I am one of those people who always has a long list of resolutions and unfortunately an even longer list of un-accomplished ones! So for this year I resolve to document all my resolutions and my journey in accomplishing them on a public forum so that I can share the experiences I go through and also be held accountable by my readers.
That is how fabyummychic came about. This is my way of sharing my opinions and ideas on all things...you guessed it...fabulous, yummy & chic.
I choose this title because it allows me to express my self on the topics I love most...cooking and eating delicious food, dressing well and observing great style, travelling, meeting new people, staying healthy... all the things that make for a fabulous, happy life!
So even though its February, it's better to start late rather than never starting at all! Anything is better than looking back over the past year with dismay and disappointment!
With that thought in mind, I resolve to post regularly and to enthrall my readers with all the gory details of my journey to complete all my resolutions for 2013 and beyond! depending on how well this goes!
I hope you all enjoy my posts as much as I am sure I will enjoy writing them.

A new year is like a fresh start to pursue and fulfill our dreams and ambitions. so whether we admit to it or not, most of us do start the year with a list of resolutions..promises that we make to ourselves or to our loved ones of how we will make our greatest wishes come true
Then the euphoria of new years eve wears away and we find our resolutions slip away through the cracks of our everyday lives and only remember them when the year is almost about to end again.
So even though I know its February, I didn't want to wait till the end of the year, look back and realize with great dismay that I didn't accomplish any of the goals I had set for my self. So better to get started, even if it is a month later, rather than not getting started at all.
I have been toying with the idea of writing a blog for some time now and even experimented with one a few years ago. An experiment which sadly did not go as well as I expected, which is why I decided to start anew.
This is how fabyummychic came about. Through my blog I will be able to share my thoughts on....you guessed it..all things which are either fabulous, yummy or chic or all three for that matter.
I chose this title because it allows me to talk about all my most favorite things...delicious food, captivating fashion & style, travelling, staying healthy, basically all the keys to living a fabulously happy life. It also allows me to document my journey of trying to achieve my resolutions for 2013...and beyond, depending on how well this goes!
So here goes; my first step in achieving my first resolution of the year! I resolve to blog regularly about my life and share my thoughts on what I think is Fab, Yummy & Chic.
Watch this space for the first real post, coming up very soon...
