Goals for 2018!

Text Lightbox

It's a new year and this is when we take time to think about what we want to achieve in the next 12 months and today I'm doing exactly that, I'm sitting down and sharing my goals for the year ahead. The hope is that this time next year I'll sit down to create new goals and will have achieved all if not most of the things on my list. I'm not a fan of new years resolutions and haven't made any for many years but I like the idea of having something to visualise and an idea of the direction I want my life to go in for the year ahead. 

Life Goals
1. Move Out - I've lived at home with my mum all my life and have dreamed of moving out for a long time but I'm hoping that this is the year I can finally make it happen.
2. Improve My Cooking Skills - I've always been such a fussy eater but as I get older I'm trying out more things and definitely enjoy more foods than I did as a child. During 2017 I had started cooking more healthy homemade meals and this is something I really want to continue with, I want to improve my cooking skills and eat healthier in general.
3. Save, Save, Save  - Over the last few years I have paid more attention to my spending and made a genuine effort to put some money aside for savings, this year I want to continue with this and I think a good goal is to save £1000 before the end of December.

Blogging Goals  
1. Upgrade Equipment - This year my most important goal is to improve my blogging and start really taking it seriously and the first thing I want to do is improve my equipment. I want to purchase a camera and a good lens to go along with it as well as lighting equipment and different materials to use as backdrops and staging in photographs.
2. Create a Dedicated Blogging Space  - This one is dependant on my other goal to move out, the hope is we will move into a 2 bedroom home where I can have the spare bedroom dedicated to all things beauty and blogging.....I get particularly excited about the prospect of having my own dressing room/office/chill out space.
3. Start Earning an Income -  My long-term goal dream is to earn a full-time income from blogging, I don't think this will happen this year but I would love to start heading in that direction by the end of 2018. I currently work part-time and it would be incredible if by the end of this year I was earning enough money to create a full-time wage between my current job and blogging (I just want to mention that I love blogging and even if  I don't make a penny I will continue to blog for as long as it continues to make me happy)

So there you have it, a rough guide to all the things I would like to achieve this year, I haven't made them too specific because I want them to be attainable but I think this is a good starting point and I'm excited to see what 2018 has in store for us all.

Happy New Year!
Let me know what your goals are for the year!
