My 2018 Goals

HM BLUE JUMPER STREET STYLE LONDON LAUREN ROSE STYLE

My last post was a little reflection on 2017 and what goals I managed to achieve. You can see that post here. Now it is officially 2018 and when this post goes live I will be on my first day back at work after my Christmas holidays's. So I thought it was time to look ahead now, I shared a post like this last year so I thought I would do it again this year. (See my 2017 goals post here) Here are my 2018 goals...

FINANCIAL GOALS
Save Money

I want to start saving my money properly, setting up a direct debit that put's a certain amount away in my savings account each month so at the end of the year I have some decent savings behind me. 

I also plan on setting up a help to buy ISA. Not that I will ever be able to buy somewhere in London, but a girl can dream.

I am also kicking off this goal by having a clothes spending ban this month. I am not allowed to buy any new clothes in January at all. This will be hard for me, so if you do have any tips to help me achieve this - let me know!

Fitness
Keep Running

I really got into running towards the end of last year and now really enjoy it. I plan to sign up to some more 10k's this year and possibly a half marathon.

I will hopefully be doing my first one of the year at the end of February and then will plan some more throughout the year and then I might be ready for a half marathon at the end of the year. We shall see. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself.

DETOX MY WARDROBE
Have a much needed clear out.

I need to have a huge clear out. Oh my god. How can one girl collect so much stuff. I have way too many clothes that i just don't wear, so this month I am having a major clear out and being ruthless with it. I am selling all my clothes over on Mercari. They have actually challenged me to a 'Wardrobe Detox Challenge', which is just the motivation I needed.

You can follow this link to take you to my profile and see what I am selling and you might be able to grab yourself a bargain. I have more that I plan to list over the next few days.

I have a full blog post coming up later in January all about how Mercari works, it is ever so easy to use. I will also be sharing all my tips and tricks on how to declutter your wardrobe clear out, so look out for that soon!

Read More
Try to read 1 book a month

This may be a slightly ambitious goal since I barely ever read a book but I do want to start reading more. It will also be nice to use this to have more offline screen time in my life and take the opportunity to read a book instead. I do love to read but I only ever seem to do it if I am away on holiday.

Let me know  if you have any book recommendations for me? I am a sucker for a love story, or on the flip side love a crime thriller.

Blog Goals
Continue to share post's that I am happy with.

I haven't ever shared my blog goals as such on here before, although I do set myself some in a notebook from time to time. Last year I was super happy with my blog progress and this year I hope that continues. 

The most important thing is to enjoy blogging and be happy with the content you share. I love the photo taking, creating outfit's in my head, the post writing, the whole process really. I want to continue to share my outfit post's and really try to post a minimum of four blog post's a month.

I also hope to attend some more blogger events this year and make some more blogger friends in the process.
