2017 Goals

Hello everyone! First of all I want to wish you all a Happy New Year, I hope you celebrated in style!

I've never been a big fan of New Years Resolutions, purely because I have the worst will power known to man and fail epically every year. So this year, I've decided to set myself a few little goals that I know I can work on throughout the year. I'm probably not going to be really strict on myself, but I'm hoping I can stick to them this year!

Be more active on social media
I'm probably the worst when it comes to interaction on social media. Some days I'm responding to anyone and everyone's posts, then other days I'm just browsing through people's feeds not really reacting to anything. I'm hoping to be more active with people on all my social media platforms, not necessarily to gain a bigger following, just to make more friends online!

Be consistent with blogging
Okay so this one sounds fairly easy to stick to, but I know I'll probably struggle. Back in 2015, I had a blog for about 6 months, only posted once or twice a week, but lost all inspiration and just gave up. Then I relaunched in October 2016, and I'm hoping that I can post consistently, even if it is only a couple of times a week, as long as it's good content then I'll be happy.

Read more blogs
I'm constantly promoting my own blog on Twitter and Instagram and forever liking posts of other people's self promo, but I always forget to read their blog posts (horrible, I know!) But this year, I'm going to make a conscious effort to find new bloggers and regularly read their content and give feedback! There's nothing better than supporting each other, am i right!?

Be more self confident
This is one goal that will definitely be harder than the rest. For quite a while now I've struggled with my self confidence, and I imagine if I don't change something in my life then it'll only get worse. I'm hoping to find a way to work out that I enjoy, and maybe lose the weight that seems to have creeped up on me, and fingers crossed I'll be happier for it.

Save money
My final goal for 2017 is to save more money. At the minute my savings account has a lovely balance of 0. I'm hoping to save around £50 a month which might not seem like much but I know it will add up eventually. I've already given myself a budget of £40 for treats for myself whether it be makeup, clothes or other bits I don't really need. I'm not really saving for anything in particular, but hopefully in a few years Ross and I will have saved enough between us to put a deposit down for a house! 

Those are my goals for 2017, I'm hoping to do better than last year and actually stick to them! What are your goals for this year?


  1. I hope you achieve all of your goals! Personally I love setting aside time to read and comment on people's blogs, you could try doing something similar x

    1. Thankyou! That's sounds like a great idea! x

  2. Good luck with your goals! They definitely seem achievable! I'm trying to save this year too, but I know how much I will struggle with this one haha! X

    1. Thankyou, I hope so. Good luck with yours! x

  3. Once you start reading other blogs, it's so addictive - I love finding new blogs!
