July Goals



  1. Ensure that I keep a good balance between life and work. I am working a lot over the NEXT sale and I want to make sure that I keep myself sane!
  2. I really want to go and see Wonder Woman. I saw Baby Driver a week ago with my boyfriend and totally unexpectedly loved it so that is one off the list, at least.
  3. Try something new makeup wise. A new mascara? Eyebrow product? Maybe a lipstick!
  4. Be vigilant with saving money. I am really low on money thank you government so I need to save every scrap I can until payday and avoid my savings where possible. I have had a lot of expenses at once and it has been a tricky few weeks.
  5. Go for walks. I love walks on a summer evening when it is a little cooler but still lovely weather. I also love walks on a hot day where you can stop somewhere with a picnic!
  6. As I mentioned in my June Reflection, the weather prevented me from getting in to running. On cooler days I really want to get back in to it as I could not hack it in the heat.
  7. Tick off as much of my summer bucket list as possible


  1. Finish off the collage that celebrates ellamaygarrett.com reaching 1000 followers!
  2. Maybe make a Facebook page? I don’t know if this would be a thing people would like?
  3. Write more regularly over the summer/whenever I feel inspired. I have written a lot more posts recently and I have scheduled ideas up until September so I am definitely feeling more inspired and I really want to write as much as possible while I can.
  4. Arrange something else to celebrate this crazy 1000 milestone!
  5. Numbers wise.. I would like to average over 150 views a day. I think my engagement slacks here and there and that prevents me having a lot of consistency on this blog. My stats are all over the place and I am only setting myself a ‘numbers’ goal to actually force myself to aim for something consistent where I can actually track where my blog is going.

What are your July goals?

    Wonderwoman is so good – I would totally recommend it! x

    Wonder Woman is awesome, I totally recommend seeing it! I’m also curious about Baby Driver as I’m a fan of Edgar Wrights other films. It’s so crazy you have 1000 followers! I love how you’ve been celebrating with the collage, its so creative! Im trying to think of what to do when I hit that milestone (its creeping up), and I’m blanking on ideas 😂

      Going to see it on Tuesday! It’s such a good film, you should definitely check it out! I still can’t believe it! Such an incredible milestone that I never believed would happen to lil ol me. Thank you so much lovely. Ahhh I blanked for ages and then it came to me! You’ll have the same!

  3. July 8, 2017 / 11:19 pm

    Good luck with your goals!!! I also need to see Wonder Woman!

    • July 9, 2017 / 9:30 pm

      Thank you lovely! I’ll let you know if it is any good!

  4. July 9, 2017 / 12:06 am

    You have amazing goals and I believe you will achieve every single one. I couldn’t possibly write mine in a comment lol

    • July 9, 2017 / 9:31 pm

      You always have the most extensive and elaborated goals, do not fret!! Fingers crossed!

  5. July 9, 2017 / 4:04 am

    you’ll love Wonder Woman, it’s pretty good <3. Those are great goals and I'm sure you'll do your best to meet them. I need to work on saving myself, so I understand. I want to check off as much as I can on my summer bucket list as well. I want to finish off my courses strong and to volunteer for a non-profit organization. I'm working on being more consistent with my blog posts and maintain exercising a couple of times a week. I've thought about a facebook page myself! I think that would be a great way to reach more people.

  9. July 9, 2017 / 10:53 pm

    Congrats on your 1000 milestone! I am slowly getting there…. I, too, get anxious about crossing off as many things off the summer bucket list as possible!!

    • July 9, 2017 / 11:34 pm

      Thank you so much! You totally deserve so much love and support darling xxx

  10. July 10, 2017 / 2:08 am

    Lovely goals! My blog goals make such a long list so I won’t even go there. But personal goals would be to de-clutter, work out 20+ days (top last months 15 days), no procrastinating for summer finals, to always make time for my husband and meditation! <3 xoxo

    • July 10, 2017 / 9:59 am

      Thank you lovely! That’s some amazing goals! Good luck with them all – they sound fab! Xxx

  11. July 10, 2017 / 4:09 am

    good luck with all your goals! I’ve been wanting to see Wonder Woman also, I’ve only heard good reveiws✨

    • July 10, 2017 / 10:00 am

      Thank you lovely! I’m seeing it Tuesday so I will let you know!!

  12. July 10, 2017 / 9:17 am

    So cute- I love reading goals posts. Really enjoyed this- hope everything works out for you! Also I seriously relate with the stats issue- mine are all over the place it’s insane! xx

    • July 10, 2017 / 10:02 am

      Thank you darling!! Fingers crossed, eh? I seem to have 0 consistency so it’s really hard to see what people enjoy! I could get 50-400 views a day which is wild but nothing concrete to work with!

  13. July 10, 2017 / 9:58 am

    Great goals – they all sound manageable! Summer walks in the evening are lovely 🙂

    • July 10, 2017 / 10:02 am

      Hopefully I can tick them all off! Aren’t they just!? I love them xx

      • July 10, 2017 / 10:10 am

        The sunset and warm weather are a nice combination x

  14. July 10, 2017 / 3:14 pm

    Keep it up 🙂 I will cross my fingers so you succeed with them all 🙂

  15. July 10, 2017 / 4:58 pm

    I love this! Monthly goals is something I’m really considering and I feel you with working more and balancing a social life into that, I was awake at 3.30 for work this morning and I’m feeling it right now & going on more walks also sounds amazing I usually hate the heat but a summer evening walk sounds lovely x

    • July 11, 2017 / 1:25 pm

      Thank you darling! I totally recommend it, it has helped me keep focused and work hard on what I want to achieve. Ah gosh, I totally feel you, I have been doing similar crazy shifts and it is really bloody hard xx

  16. July 10, 2017 / 6:50 pm

    I love posts like this so much and I would love to see a facebook page so if you do make one be sure to let me know :)! Goodluck for your goals, youre going to smash them! xxx

    • July 11, 2017 / 1:27 pm

      You think? Ahh maybe I will make one then! Thank you so much darling xxxx

        Yes of course! Thats okay lovely Xxxx

  17. July 10, 2017 / 9:04 pm

    I saw baby driver last night, I was also NOT expecting it to be as good as it was! Wonderwoman is also next on my list, I saw spiderman last week, I would seriously recommend dude xx

    • July 11, 2017 / 1:29 pm

      I felt the same about it, I had no idea it would be that good! I am seeing Wonder Woman tonight and I am super excited! Ah really? I wasn’t sure about it but the boyfriend really wants to go so I think I may have to tag along haha xx

  18. July 10, 2017 / 11:44 pm

    Our personal goals are very similar! Bar the running one, can’t see me doing that lols!!!

    • July 11, 2017 / 1:30 pm

      It is still far too humid for me to run so I am failing massively at the moment!! Good luck with your goals xx

  19. July 11, 2017 / 1:38 pm

    I hope you achieve your goals. I love how real your posts are. Detailed but still enjoyable. Good job sweetie.❤

  20. July 11, 2017 / 6:42 pm
