New Years Resolutions - March Update

Hello gang! 
So I say it every month, but I seriously cannot believe it's April now. I have no idea where this year is going and it terrifies me that in just over a month I will have finished my second year of university - this time next year i'll actually need a full-time job to be going to - scary! 
i'm going to put it out there now, March was a pretty naff month for me - i've been some sort of poorly for about 99% of it, so i'm actually quite happy to see April and have a bit of a fresh start, a little bit like a second January! Having said this though, March has had its highs, particularly on the gig front - i've seen Justin Bieber (for free, please note!), One Direction and Olly Murs in the last month and I'll also be starting April off in the best way possible with a London day trip tomorrow with one of my best friends - we've just made the plans which have ended up with a trip to Westfield to spend some Easter pennies (you will probably end up with another haul that i promised i'd not do, but it would be rude not to spend, right!?), M&M World, the loss of Space NK virginity, MAC lusting, being touristy and ending up at the O2 to channel our inner child at 1D World before seeing One Direction (again...) I'm planning on taking a tonne of pictures, so I might do a post on our adventures during the week seeing as I haven't got round to writing up any reviews just yet with my first week of Easter holidays... whoops. 
i feel like i've rambled enough now, so onto the resolutions update! 

1. Try some Soap & Glory products
i've not bought anything new again this month, but a few people have recommended Dr Spot to me after my complaints of breakouts, so I think this will be the next purchase on the list.  

2. Try some Lush products
nothing. sorrrry! 

3. Do 20 sit ups every morning and every night
so April is here and still not one sit-up. but with Easter now out the way and lots of chocolate to eat, let's do it! Technically if i start now, i'll have done this for 3/4 of the year!

4. ALWAYS walk to work. unless it's raining.
i've again barely been at work this month, but i have still walked in every time! 

5. Eat more healthily
i've done okay with this. i'm not a huge fan of chocolate/easter treats with the exception of creme eggs and malteser bunnies so i load my chocolate onto my little brother, so this should be easy to keep up this month. 

6. Try and save £1000 in my savings for car/internship
well there's £240 in my savings account. almost a quarter of the way there? my car needed a new radiator last month too, so this is my excuse. 

7. Don't attempt a spending ban
as you can see from my last couple of posts, i clearly haven't been on a spending ban. 

8. Book a holiday
still not booked, but me and James have been looking at a few more places again. we might just go last minute, but a holiday is definitely on the cards! 

9. Purchase a brush cleaner for  make-up brushes
i desperately need to do this. i might see if i can find anything which is affordable on tomorrows London trip and let you all know!  

10. Jar project
i literally haven't put anything in my jars this month i don't think, either out of being at home so much (the jars are in my room at uni) and just because i've been feeling so naff! 

11. Watch as many films as possible off my list of 'Films I Should Have Seen But Haven't'
i need to get a move on with this! I had a film day, but that's it for this month. We've also decided that next year I need to either tackle some decent TV or decent music!
