Goals: January


January is the start of a New Year and is obviously renowned for making and forgetting of resolutions. My monthly goals have definitely helped motivate me and so I thought I would share my goals/resolutions for this month and 2017. Because of this, I have a lot of personal goals to share with you.


  1. Join the gym? Maybe? Hmm… And actually go! Who knows! How cliche!
  2. Keep writing in my 5 Year Journal that my Mum got me for my 20th birthday
  3. Spend more time with my friends and keeping in contact with those who aren’t in York
  4. Book my Colchester Zoo Keeper Experience and my spa day that I got for Christmas so I have 2 amazing things to look forward to!
  5. Spoil Adam on his birthday on the 8th January and make him happy
  6. Focus on quality over quantity when it comes to buying clothes and shoes, something I mentioned in my January Sales Haul (here)


  1. Ensure that I spend time checking out other blogs and commenting on all my favourite posts – I often post a lot and communicate on my blog but not enough on other peoples
  2. Move over to ellamaygarrett.com – I really really really need to do this!


  1. Nail my Moral Philosophy exam!
  2. Do my Sunday organisation for the week ahead that I worked on doing in my 1st term last year – this was a goal for October/November and I want to make sure I keep doing it!
  3. Spend 2 days a week in the library doing the reading for seminars and making sure I am on top of all my work for the new Spring term.

Do you have any January goals or New Year’s resolutions?

    Lovely goals! I’m definitely with you on communicating more on other blogs! It’s so easy to get swept up in writing posts, replying to comments and promoting posts etc! Good luck with your exam! You’ll do great I’m sure ☺️ xxx

    Great goals!! I also need to focus on interacting and supporting other blogs as well. I will like or tweet a blog post but I definitely need to be more engaging on others!

      Milenka was just saying – so easy to get swept up in your own content! I will always like and read posts but I feel like I’m lurking rather than commenting haha! Thank you for commenting lovely x
