My Goals for 2018

My Goals for 2018

I can’t believe that Christmas is over and we are almost in 2018! Where has the time gone?! 2017 wasn’t the greatest year for me but I’m hoping that the new year will be much better…turning over a new leaf and all that!

I thought I would share my goals for the new year, enjoy…

Life Goals

  • Graduate from University with a 2:1 or above!
  • Stop spending money on useless crap that I don’t need and start saving!
  • Get a job, somewhere in or around Exeter!
  • Find a nice flat to live in!
  • Actually watch a new TV series rather than watching Friends on repeat 24/7…
  • Read more books!
  • Be more confident… (which is easier said than done!)
  • Grow my natural nails, stop biting them and stop wearing acrylics to cover them!
  • Go back to Disneyland!!

Blogging Goals

  • Start reaching out to brands!
  • Reach 1.5k followers on Instagram!
  • Blog more and be more honest about my mental health!
  • Plan ahead and schedule blog posts!
  • Improve my blog photography and learn how to use my camera properly!
  • Engage in more blog chats on Twitter!
  • Get an invite and attend my first blog event!
  • Make more blogging friends!

Wish me luck! I hope you all have a lovely 2018, see you in the new year!


p.s. do you have anything you want to achieve in 2018?

    Ooh I definitely agree with the saving thing, I spend so much money on useless crap it’s awful haha! If you go back to Disneyland I cannot WAIT to see the blog post, I bloody love Disney! 🙂 I wish you all the luck with your resolutions, I’m sure you can get that 2:1 too! And Happy New Year 🙂

    This is a great post! It’s amazing setting goals for the new year, I love setting myself goals too and reading books is definitely on my list too!

    Wishing you so much luck in accomplishing everything you want to accomplish, you’ll smash it all I’m sure! I can’t wait to see what content you produce in the New Year and I’ve been loving everything you’ve written so far, so glad I came across your blog in 2017 x

    I really hope you achieve all of your goals this year!! Our goals are actually very similar as I really want to read more and be more confident as well. Reaching out to brands is on my to do list for 2018 too, although I have been blogging for almost 4 years it still feels a bit intimidating to contact brands and PRs for some reason… 🙂 x
