2018 GOALS



It’s finally 2018, which means, new adventures and new goals to set yourself and work towards them! I’m such an organiser and planner and I already had planned about the first 50 pages of my bullet journal in November! I always like to set myself goals whether that’s big or small and work towards them, in 2018 I decided to set myself realistic goals and actually make an effort to work on them and tick them off before December 31st! I wanted to share some of my new year goals here on my blog, hope this post inspires you to set yourself goals and helps you get organised for this new year ahead of us!

  1. Read 25 books.
  2. Be on top of uni deadlines.
  3. Do a summer travel journal.
  4. Blog consistently.
  5. Start yoga.
  6. Explore more of London!
  7. Work towards being a morning person.
  8. Don’t buy anymore makeup/nail varnish and use what I have (!!)
  9. At least 75 blogposts by the end of the year!
  10. 2000 Instagram followers! (link down below 😉 )
  11. Visit Brighton.
  12. BE HAPPY!

  1. I love that you mentioned using already existing make up! I think a lot of us get tricked into feeling like we need to have 30 drawers of makeup for variety, when all you need is one of each makeup item, and maybe a couple of eye shadow palettes. Super inspiring post! X

  2. Good luck with your goals!

  3. These are great goals! I recently tried aerial yoga & it was so much fun. I think it might be something you’d like to try too 🙂 Happy 2018 & good luck with your goals 🙂

    lots of love, Jasmin

    Great goals for the year! It’s really inspiring to see other people’s goals and know that they’re working for them just like I am with mine!

  8. Good luck with your goals! One of my goals is to read more; if you’re registered with Goodreads, you can track your progress through there. My reading challenge for 2018 is also 25 books. It’s also great for book recommendations and reading groups too!

  9. Great goals, I like the way you have a mix of goals to benefit your life holistically and not just focused on one area. These goals will definitely benefit you in your life. Well done.

    YAY to being happy! These are great goals 🙂
    I would love to go back to London and visit more of it. That’s one of my favourite cities but there’s a lot more to explore!

  11. I use a bullet journal too. It’s such an integral part of planning my week. These sound like some great goals.

    What a great list, I hate it when people come up with a long old list that really isn’t achievable! I love the one about becoming a morning person… I really need to start working on that too! And yoga is on my to do list as well.

    Followed you on Instagram, good luck!

    Let me tell you, this post is inspirational! I wish you the best of luck along your journey and may 2018 be a bright and progressive year for you. I’ve been slacking on my yoga 🤦🏽‍♀️ I need to start back and find my state of zen.

  20. I love goals!!! It just makes me get to know what my strengths are and work towards my goals more. I have a few goals but more blog related goals actually! I need to work on my blog and posting more. Personal goals are still getting written down on a piece of paper that I need to put into my journal.

    I hope you have a wonderful year lovely. xx

  21. falidude says:

  22. Good luck on your goals and please share the books you read! I’m really interested in finding some new stories!

  23. Katie Henry says:

    These are such brilliant goals best of luck with them. Mine are to get up earlier and do more running and to work harder at uni, hopefully I’ll achieve that to some extent x

  24. Wow! Read 25 books in a year is not easy if you like huge books haha btw it’s a super nice goal, I used to read a lot in the past and you can achieve this!
    I hope you’ll be reaching all of those objectives.

    happy 2018!

    I love the variety of goals here. Being a morning person is an external goal for me, it’s definitely something I could improve on! x


  26. Nicely penned post and good goals to start the new year with. Good luck keeping up with them!
    Love Penny @ Pebblepen.com xx

  27. I’m always buying nail varnishes, but hardly ever use them more than once 😂I definitely need to have that goal as well!!

  28. Moonsomnia says:

    All the best with your 2018 goals! Brighton is great, I’m there at the end of this month! I also love that you mentioned using up make up before getting new items though I think I would really struggle 😂 Thanks for sharing and all the best for 2018 #TeacupClub

  32. Alys George says:

    Number 12 is the best one to focus on. If you make yourself happy the rest will simply fall into place.

    Happy New Year!

    Awesome goals! I definitely want to blog more consistently too, and do yoga more often (I’m all about barre workouts right now), not spending as much on makeup, and gaining IG followers (which is basically impossible…lol)
