December Goals!

'Fess up, who's feeling festive? I know that the start of December sees most people getting into the Christmas spirit. It takes a bit more than the arrival of December to make me feel festive though! I'm more excited for the New Year, if I'm honest. I'm already planning my goals for 2018! But today I'm talking about how I did with November's goals, and my goals for December. Let's start with last month's goals...

1. Save money made from blogging for Christmas. I've put the little bit of money I've made from blogging over the last month, or so, into a savings account. I'll either put it towards Christmas or towards my credit card bill!

2. Go Christmas shopping. Although I'm by no means finished, I did get a good chunk of Christmas shopping done in November. So that's good!

3. Stick to weekly budget. I lost the plot with this one completely, but then I did buy all my giveaway prizes for my Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway and some Christmas presents in November, so it's not all bad.

4. Get back into a daily skincare routine. Hahahaha....seriously, does anyone have any tips on how I can get back into a daily skincare routine? Or even just get into one? I find it so hard!

5. Read a chapter before bed every night. It may not be every night, but I've gotten back into a good habit of reading before bed most nights. 

3 out of 5 ain't bad, especially after such a stressful month (read more about it here) Now, onto December's goals...

1. Finish Christmas shopping. I do not want to leave this to the last minute, so I'd like to get this done in the first week, or two, of December!

2. Don't overspend. December's an expensive month, with Christmas food and presents, so I'm determined to stick to a budget this month.

3. Order our wedding photos. For ourselves and for family and friends. I can't wait to get some framed and on display in our living room.

4. Take a week off blogging. When everyone else is pushing out loads of Christmas content, I'm going to be taking a break because I can feel my creative juices drying up. 

5. Leave the house at least once a day, every day. I'll put my hands up and say that sometimes, I don't leave the house. Usually not for longer than a day, but it's still not good for my mental health. So I want to get out of the house every day, even if just for a ten minute brisk walk around the estate!

Wish me luck!

  1. I think I need the goal of leaving the house at least once a day too. I am becoming a hermit and I enjoy being inside! Great goals, good luck accomplishing them!

    1. I know exactly what you mean, it's so easy these days to just not go out right? Thank you! x

  2. I love reading your monthly goals posts - they always remind me that I should probably make some too! I'm a sucker for not leaving the house, especially when my anxiety is bad, but this is something I'd like to try to do in December too!

    1. It's all to easy not to leave the house, especially when anxiety is bad, but I do think it helps if you can force yourself out even for an hour or so xx

  3. I think taking a break from blogging is a good idea around this time of year! I completed 99% of my December content in the last few months so all I had to do was publish and share them over December, and could spend the rest of my time celebrating Christmas and just relaxing. Taking a break when you've feeling overworked is also the best thing you can do for your creativity. You'll come back completely re-energised and full of ideas!

    1. That is such a good idea! We all need a break from time to time, and what better time than at Christmas? x
