May Goals

may goals

This year is flying by! Time for my May Goals!

Side note: In the middle of May I have my exams so I will be posting still – I have prepared myself – but I won’t be very active in terms of replying to comments quickly etc. I hope you understand!


  1. My mum has a ‘big’ birthday coming up so I want to make sure she has a great day. We’re planning a trip to London the day after so that should be fun
  2. Make sure I say yes to more things
  3. BE the person who invites people to things rather than being invited – I’m always worried I’m not wanted around!
  4. Hopefully there will be some sun for us to enjoy – if so, I want to be outside much more
  5. Save some money for the summer or ensure that I have a job for when I’m back at home


  1. Maybe hit 700 followers? This seems absurd that I can even make these goals!
  2. Interact more on Twitter and Instagram with bloggers
  3. I want to somehow grasp more of an idea what kind of posts you guys enjoy the post!
  4. Practice my photography for my blog more – I have started expermenting a bit more I will admit


  1. Make sure I am finding a good balance between revising for my exams, writing essays and having breaks
  2. Take advantage of any of the academic support available to me to help with my essay writing and exam skills
  3. Work on my internship at the hospice where I am helping to organise an event in June

Do you have any May goals?

    700 isn’t impossible for such a lovely blog like yours, Ella.

    Hoping you reach this milestone soon and wishing you an amazing summer! 🌞

    Good luck for your exams! Hope you and your mum have a great day in London and never make too big goals if they don’t scare you you’re doing it wrong! My goals would be to post more and also work hard πŸ™‚

    Good luck for your exams πŸ™‚ I’m crossing my fingers for more sunshine – over here it’s suddenly gone grey and cold with lots of rain, hardly the weather I was expecting from France at this time of year!

    Keep working hard! I love your goals and I can’t wait to see more of your photography! My goal is also to say yes more. I find myself turning social events down a lot because of my anxiety, but I want to change that! xx.

    I totally understand, most of the time I feel like I’m not wanted around by my friends! But good for you, definitely invite them out more and let us know how it goes!

    • May 7, 2017 / 7:05 pm

      I’ll let you know by the end of the month!! Thank you lovely πŸ˜€ xxxx

    Good luck for your upcoming exams!!

  11. May 6, 2017 / 10:29 pm

    Feeling you. It is good to specify goals, so they become more achievable. You inspired me to do the same. Thank you. πŸ™‚

    • May 7, 2017 / 6:57 pm

      Thank you so much! I am honestly so happy to hear that! Good luck with it all xxx

  12. May 7, 2017 / 1:50 am

    I totally relate to the not feeling that I’m wanted around. I’ve been inviting people places a lot more to help push myself out of my comfort zone. My goals are to spend as much time with friends and family before I become pretty busy during the summer and explore some new places as well :). Also to continue cooking more and eating healthier/exercising frequently. I look forward to seeing more of your photography! and congratulations on your internship.

    • May 7, 2017 / 6:56 pm

      That’s fantastic news that you have been doing it! Hopefully by the end of the month I will have tried a bit too. Your goals are fantastic, I always love hearing what you’re planning to do! Good luck with them all xxx

      • May 9, 2017 / 3:42 am

        Thank you ella, same to you! I look forward to hearing your goals as well. yes! Cheers to accomplishing our goals.

    Hey πŸ™‚
    I love your May goals! I think it is very helpful to write down certain goals at the beginning of the month. I recently started creating kind of a goal board, for specific goals.
    For example fitness. I wrote down what, why, how and when I want to achieve my goal, additionally I added some pictures.
    I guess this may be very helpful, since you have to visualize your goal and consequently be a little bit more mindful πŸ™‚
    I can also relate to many goals you set for yourself, especially the feeling of not being wanted around. But I am sure you will reach these goals!!

    xx, Sophie

    • May 7, 2017 / 6:54 pm

      That is such an incredible thing to do, how inspirational! I love that idea πŸ™‚ Thank you so much lovely! I think I might start the board thing too, always great to visualise the steps you need to take! xxx

      • May 7, 2017 / 9:19 pm

        I am glad you like it!
        Tell me if it works for you, as soon as you tried it β™₯️:)!!

  14. May 7, 2017 / 12:01 pm

    Best of luck with your exams! I find I create goals and I either work hard towards them or forget about them, there’s no in between aha πŸ˜‚ xxx

    • May 7, 2017 / 6:52 pm

      Thank you so much lovely! Hahaha I love that! xxx

  15. May 7, 2017 / 2:38 pm

    Your blog is really beautiful! You’re an inspiration x

  16. May 7, 2017 / 3:33 pm

    I love it that you want to be the person who wants to invite other people to things! I have the same problem. I usually wait for others to invite me, but thinking about it, it feels nice when somebody invites me something, so others would probably enjoy that as well πŸ™‚

    • May 7, 2017 / 6:51 pm

      Exactly! Thank you so much πŸ™‚ I always think that people don’t want to spend time around me until they ask me but I know how nice it is to be asked and if they feel the same I will never see them!! xxx

  17. May 7, 2017 / 5:01 pm

    Really enjoyed this post x

  18. May 7, 2017 / 7:30 pm
