June Goals

We are officially in the summer! Time for my June Goals. If you didn’t see my May Goals, I have linked them here and my May Reflection is here too.


  • Believe it or not, I have started running?! CRAZY talk, I know. I want to do my best to keep this up. I have set myself a few 1-2 year goals and running 10k for a personal charity is one that I really want to be able to do.
  • A while ago I set myself the goal of moisturising after every shower and I failed. miserably. I want to try and do this again because I have dry skin and love hot showers. I’m sure you can do the math for how bad that is!
  • At the end of June I am going to Barcelona and I cannot wait! I want to make sure I have the best time and explore some of the places we didn’t last year.
  • As you know, I have been involved with a charity in York where I am helping with an event. This has really sparked my love for Events Fundraising and so I have contacted my local Macmillan fundraiser to see if I can help out in any way over the summer. If I can, I really want to get some more experience under my belt.
  • Following this, the event I help with is on the 10th June and I am so excited to showcase the hard work the hospice has put in and help in any way I can to make it a success!
  • Enjoy getting back in to working. I go back to NEXT in June-July and I am excited to see everyone again. I miss working, I do admit!


  • Seems crazy that my May goal was to hit 700 followers and this month it would be insane if I hit 900! I don’t necessarily pursue this as a goal but rather use my monthly goals to almost sign post what milestone I am close to.
  • I have started using Twitter again, yaaay! I really want to keep active on Twitter and enjoying speaking with you guys.

    A 10k sounds exciting!!! Have you signed up for one already?

    • June 7, 2017 / 10:44 pm

      No I haven’t! I probably won’t even manage one until January! I think it will be great motivation to work on it if I sign up for one soon though x

      • June 7, 2017 / 10:51 pm

        That worked for me for a 5k so maybe!!!!

          • June 7, 2017 / 11:17 pm

            Yeah!!! I stopped running after so clearly I need to sign up for another! 😅

    Well done, Ella. I love running, and on any given day, it takes my cares away. In fact I am heading to a new park today evening to run around and check it out. And the end of June shall be here soon, so get your lists in place already 😉

    • June 7, 2017 / 10:43 pm

      Thank you so much! Oh really? That sounds amazing! I love that you enjoy it so much, it is definitely a great way of clearing your mind xx

      • June 7, 2017 / 11:34 pm

        Nothing like the feeling after it when I can sink my teeth into a big fat cake and not feel like a wastrel.

  3. June 7, 2017 / 6:43 pm

    Oh my mum loves Barcelona! She wants to go back for so bad and I want to go there too! Can’t wait to see all the pictures, xx

    • June 7, 2017 / 10:42 pm

      It is such an incredible place, one of the few that I feel great about returning to!! I will make sure I take lots and lots! xx

  4. June 7, 2017 / 7:08 pm

    Followed your twitter! Great goals 😊 x

    • June 7, 2017 / 10:40 pm

      Ah thank you so much, I will follow you back lovely 🙂 xx

  5. June 7, 2017 / 8:22 pm

    Some great goals! I have every confidence in you achieving them too 😺 💕xxx

  6. June 7, 2017 / 9:16 pm

    Nice goals Ella! Well done on the running! I have tried time and time again, but I just don’t like it XD I’d rather do workouts, cardio is always the hardest for me. Barcelona sounds exciting!! Also, 900 followers? Ella, have you seen your follower count?? 😛
    That one will be done in a few days ;D

    • June 7, 2017 / 10:40 pm

      Thank you so much! I have slacked a little bit the past few days because the weather has been miserable 🙁 Ahhh don’t it seems surreal!! xxx

    Hi Ella!
    These are beautiful goals!!! Great job on starting a running routine! I think the best times of my life were times when I was running consistently. Also, the most successful people I know go for regular runs :).
    Yes, I am not the best at daily moisturizing either, except my face. I do a good job with that. Some things that have helped me be more consistent is :1. See it as a chance for self-care. You are lathering on the love and moisture. 2. Pick out a moisturizer that you really like so that you will look forward to using it!
    Also, congratulations on surpassing your follower goal for may! You deserve it!
    Have a wonderful summer! I look forward to reading about your adventures!

      Hey lovely! Thank you so much, that is so nice of you 🙂 That is such a fantastic way of looking at it, thank you for changing my perspective! Thank you so much, I wouldn’t be able to get this far without people like you who are so amazing xxxx

      • June 11, 2017 / 12:58 am

        Awww thanks lovely! That’s what I love about blogging. It is such a wonderful community. We all have our stories and our journeys, but we are not alone! You have inspired me to set goals again. Thank you for being an inspiration!!!

        <3 Alana

          • June 14, 2017 / 7:50 pm

            Thanks Ella!!! I hope you are having a great week!

    I always look forward to your goals posts <3. That sounds like a wonderful summer. My goals are to do well in my classes, explore my new city, volunteer, attempt to be more social, budget, and cook more to save money 🙂

    I love your June goals! Especially the running thing, running is so amazing and I’d love to run a marathon one day! Good luck, hope you have a wonderful weekend and have fun on Saturday (??)!!
    Xx, Sophie

    • June 8, 2017 / 7:08 pm

      Thank you so much! Ahh that is the dream goal! One day we will both do it, that’s for sure. Ahh thank you, you too xxx

  10. June 8, 2017 / 1:22 pm

    I love to run and running a 10k, especially one for a charity sounds so cool! You’ll definitely reach 900 followers by the end of the month, and then you are well on your way to 1,000!!!

    • June 8, 2017 / 7:04 pm

      Thank you! Ahh what is your secret to running!? Haha! Thank you so much, I can’t believe how much support I get really 😳 xx

      • June 8, 2017 / 10:31 pm

        I listen to music when I run, but to be honest, I genuinely like running 😄 I find it to be a good time I can think about things and sort of relax. Also, pacing your running and pacing your breathing can really help, especially if you get cramps/side stitches when you run

        • June 8, 2017 / 11:43 pm

          Great advice, thank you!! Yeah I keep getting stitches and it sucks 🙁 I need to find out more about breathing and posture really! xx

          • June 9, 2017 / 2:12 am

            If you exhale every time or every other time you land on your left foot when you’re running it prevents getting side stitches (this may work for the right foot too but I’ve only ever done it on my left foot). I started doing this about a year ago and I haven’t gotten stitches since! Hope this helps 🖒

          • June 12, 2017 / 10:51 pm

            You’re joking? This is the best advice ever! Thank you so much! xxx

  11. June 8, 2017 / 3:34 pm

    Barcelona, so cool 🙂
    Keeping my fingers crossed, so you can reach them all 🙂

  12. June 8, 2017 / 8:58 pm

    I love reading your posts with goals – it’s always really inspirational! For some reason, moisturising after a shower is one of the most difficult tasks to accomplish and create a habit out of 😏 I feel your pain, girl! Your trip to Barcelona sounds like it will be amazing! I’ve always wanted to go <3 Being involved with charities is such a lovely way to enhance your life and add new skills! And 700 followers is incredible but 900?! Go you! <3 xxx

    • June 8, 2017 / 11:50 pm

      Thank you darling! I know, why is it so difficult?! Haha. Ahh I’m so excited, I will do a big ol post about it after I go! Woooo, thank you for the support darl! xxx

  13. June 8, 2017 / 11:43 pm

    Hope you have a great time in Barcelona! Your cats are so cute

  14. June 8, 2017 / 11:52 pm

    Great goals, Ella! I hope you achieve everything and I sooo love the cats!! 💗

    • June 12, 2017 / 10:51 pm

      Ah you gem, thank you lovely!! Aren’t they the cutest hehe xx

  16. June 9, 2017 / 1:36 am

    Great post as always! I feel like writing down goals wakes them more concrete. I used to moisturize after every shower I really need to get back on it!

    • June 12, 2017 / 10:51 pm

      Thank you so much! Yeah it totally does, it helps me stick to them much easier when I make them more public too. I have no idea why it is such a hard habit to maintain?! Who knows! xx

  17. June 9, 2017 / 3:57 am

    Your June goals seem very realistic and yet challenging! Love that!! Good luck with everything 🙂

  18. June 12, 2017 / 9:34 am

    Such an awesome post!! I want to start doing this on my own blog too!!

    • June 12, 2017 / 4:31 pm

      Thank you so much! Go for it, it would be great! xxx

  19. June 14, 2017 / 12:04 am

    Cool goals girl! Love it! Congrats on your 921 follwers!

    • June 14, 2017 / 7:02 pm

      Thank you lovely! Ahhhh so exciting, thank you!! xxx

  20. June 20, 2017 / 12:47 pm

    Having dry skin but loving hot baths is the worst 😂

    • June 20, 2017 / 6:25 pm

      Ahhh you feel me?! Hahah, such a nightmare! xx
