My Goals For 2016

goals for 2016
I am a bit of a scrooge when it comes to a New Year, mostly because it is the end of Christmas for another year. I never really believed in setting New Year resolutions, I have always been someone who if I want to do something I do it when I want and not wait until New Year to put pressure on myself. I do however set myself goals on what I'd like to achieve so I decided to share them with you! 

2016 Goals...

Less Screen Time | For the past month or so I haven't been on my desktop for any longer than 2/3 hours (if blogging). I used to spend a lot of evenings sat at a screen working on uni projects, catching up on social media or blogging, but now I use that time to watch a film or read a book. I've found this quite therapeutic too as I am now rediscovering old hobbies I forgot about. It is nice to unwind in the evenings away from work or a computer screen.

Keep Up To Date | I have decided to try and keep up to date with going to the gym 3 days a week, get my driving lessons started again and keep up to date with any other life bits and bobs. Since having a job I haven't had the time to do any so, this year I plan to get more organised and make time for them!

Use More, Buy Less | I have decided to put myself on a spending ban, no more buying makeup that I don't need and to start using the products I do have, otherwise my makeup drawer may collapse. I have been wearing more of my expensive makeup recently to get some use out of them and I will continue to do so to save some money!

Blog More Me | I've felt as though for the past few months my blog has been a lot of reviews, tips etc and a lot less about me. I've decided to either start writing monthly catch up posts or incorporate more about me in blog posts.

Talk Fitness & Healthy | When I first started blogging I was strictly wanting to write reviews and share my love for beauty. 2 years later I am talking about lifestyle, home and I want to write more about health and fitness, as it is something I starting to really find enjoyable. 


What are your 2016 goals??

  2. I really hope you do monthly catch ups, they're always some of my favourites to read. I'm also hoping to use up more and spend a hell of a lot less, fingers crossed eh?

  3. I feel I need to cut down on my screen time, I'll find myself on my laptop all night, I'll just be jumping from sight to sights doing noting important. Good luck with all your goals!

  5. These are really great resolutions. The one about having more downtime away from a screen is a good idea and I'm sure its pretty good for you. Making your blog more personal is always a good goal- I love finding out more about the person behind the blog :)

  10. I love your goals :) the one about buying less and using more, is something I have been doing for almost 100 days now and it feels so sooo good! I have a lovely makeup collection but it got to the point where I was just adding more and more and more and not using anything up! Its also great to start using more expensive makeup up because sadly it all have an expiration date, I used to be really cautious when using expensive stuff but I've come to the conclusion that I paid for it with my hard earned money so I shall now use it up ^_^

  11. I loved reading this post! I definitely need to adopted 'Less Screen Time' onto my list. It is so easy to just to let time past on you phone/laptop. I've been on a little beauty ban myself, it feels great actually finishing up a product and then it gives you time to figure out what you want next!

    1. Aw thanks Lucy so nice to hear. I know I must admit I do feel a lot happier turning off my screen and reading or coloring in! I know I am the same using up a lot of old products that I've loved!
