February Goals


It's finally February and I'm relieved after what felt like the longest month in a long time. Nothing bad happened in January or anything, I just felt like it lingered around too long when there are far more exciting things coming up later on in the year. I don't normally do these monthly goals type of things but seeing as I'm constantly forgetting about my new years resolutions, I figured this is a good way to keep up to date and see how well...or not well...I'm doing :P So here are a few things I want to achieve this month. Whether or not I will, is another story, we'll all just have to wait and see!


Cut out unhealthy snacks

I wouldn't necessarily say I'm an unhealthy eater, but I'm definitely not as healthy as I should be. I'm your typical crisps and chocolate lover and despite my constant promises to myself that I'll give up, I never follow through. So this month I'm really gonna try in hopes that my body doesn't always feel so sluggish and hungry all the time. Cravings are the enemy.

Put more effort into wearing make up

 I'd say I wear make up maybe once or twice a week, if I'm lucky. There was a time when I'd rather die than venture outside without having a full face of make up on, but these days I either don't have the time or purely just can't be bothered. I'm hoping to get out of this slump and put more effort into doing my face; for myself, for Dane and because I've spent far too much money on make up for it to just sit there and not be used!

Stop impulse buying things for Cassius

This is the cause of almost all of my money issues...I'm an impulse buyer, especially when it comes to my son. If I see something cute - whether it's a toy, an outfit, accessory, whatever - I need it and will be getting my card out faster than the Flash. I rarely buy things for myself these days but Cassius without a doubt always has something new every time I have money and I seriously need to stop. He's not even 1 yet and he's so spoilt by the rest of the family. I desperately want to start putting the money that I'd usually spend on unnecessary things for him into my savings account so we can go and do more family things instead of filling the house up with belongings that he'll eventually grow out of.

Connect with more bloggers on social media 

I've been trying really hard these past few months to connect with other bloggers on twitter and instagram and it's been going really well so far, I've spoken to some lovely people and received a lot of overwhelming support. But as always, I want to do more and spread love and positivity to as many small time bloggers like me. We're all in this together and there's nothing better than feeling as though you're a part of a community online so I'm going to up my game and check out as many new blogs as I can in February.

Get back to reading more - or listening to Audible

Towards the end of 2017 I was smashing my reading goals - granted I was listening to books on Audible instead of physically reading them as I don't get much time to enjoy an actual book these days - but I was roughly getting through a book every 2 weeks. 2018 however, has not been as productive for me in this department, so I've decided to dedicate at least one of Cassius's nap times during the day to reading with no distractions to get back on track and enjoy some of my TBR list that is ever growing!

Take more walks with my dog

My poor little dog used to get such long and fun filled walks before I had my son but since forever having to put my baby first now, Nobu has been cut down to very short 'only when necessary' walks to the shop and back whenever we have the time and I feel so awful about it. Luckily he's very comfortable not going for walks every day as he's so small and expends a lot of energy playing with us indoors, though I'm eager to get back into a good routine where I get him out for at least an hour a day, for his benefit and my sanity. It's always good to get a little breather from parenthood and nothing feels better than getting fresh air with a happy AF prancing pooch at your feet, right?!

They aren't anything spectacular, just little things I want to work on in every day life, and I almost certainly won't manage them all but I'm definitely gonna try too :) What are some of your goals for the month?

  1. I also impulse buy, I stopped it by keeping a tracker of things I bought. Once i did that, it lessened the urge to buy things because I knew I'd have to add it to my tracker!

    1. That's such a good idea! I might have to look into a tracker as I'm beyond terrible at stopping myself... :P

  2. I love reading other peoples goal posts, they make me so much more motivated for my own! I really need to cut out unhealthy snacks too!- https://sophiehearts.net x

  3. I typically listen to podcasts, but i've become a bit tired of them lately (seem very same-same and lack of good topics!) so i may switch to audible :)

    Ps: Cassius is adorable and i would do the same!

    1. I've not listened to any podcasts before, have debated it but never committed. Audible is great though, has such a big selection and for just £7.99 you can buy any book on the site no matter how much it costs and refund it if you don't like it, also it's very handy for on the go :) #notsponsored haha!
      Aww thank you :) It's a terrible habit though!
