January Goals

I can't quite believe I'm writing this post, to be honest. How is it (nearly) January 2019 already?! I'm not ready to accept that yet, so let's linger a little longer in December and see how I got on with my goals for this past month.

1. Get back into a daily skincare routine. I bought some new skincare bits from Glossier in their Black Friday sale. But having a broken finger in a splint has rather hampered my enthusiasm for this goal.

2. Wrap all Christmas presents. Despite having a broken finger, I managed it!
3. Save some money. It might not be a lot, but I've managed to put some money aside this month and I am v happy about that.

4. Take lots of photos. This was a massive success! I have some wonderful photos of my granddad's 80th birthday party, and other occasions. 

5. Enjoy Christmas. It's not been easy, and I've been v stressed and anxious throughout December, but I did actually enjoy Christmas and the time spent with family. And that's a good result, as far as I'm concerned. 

Four out of five ain't bad. Especially considering the curveball life threw at me in the form of a broken finger. I'm happy with that. So, with those goals considered, here are my goals for January 2019!

1. Get back into a daily skincare routine. I'm carrying this goal over from last month, and hoping that once my splint is removed I can easily achieve this. 

2. Practice gratitude every night. I don't sleep well, so I want to work on that this year. One way is by listing 2 or 3 things I'm grateful for each day right before bed. This will allow my mind to focus on the positives than on the negatives, as it usually does. 

3. Buy a swimming costume. I may not be able to swim until my finger has healed, but I can get ready for weekly swimming by buying a new costume!

4. Stick to a weekly budget. 2019 is the year I kick my shopping addiction to the curb, I hope. So to start with, I need to stick with a weekly budget.

5. Watch one new to me series on Netflix. I'm paying for Netflix, yet I hardly ever use it. I want to change that in 2019!

Wish me luck!

What are your goals for the New Year?


  1. I'm trying to get into the habit of taking my makeup off each night, as I am suuuuuper bad with remembering to do it!

  3. Happy New Year! Good luck with your January goals. I need to save this year and will be saving a little each month. My plan at the moment is a £1 on the 1st, £2 on the 2nd etc and keep this going throughout the year.

  4. Oooh let me know if you want any recs for Netflix! I definitely watch too much! I hope your goals are all going well
