*BRB JUST TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHERE THIS YEAR HAS SLOPED OFF TOO*
Christmas isn’t the only thing that’s creeping up on us, before we know it New Years Eve is going to be here and we’re all going to be belting out the countdown at midnight with a Pink Gin in one hand and a Party Popper or Cherry Wine in the other, is anyone with me?!
Every year I think to myself ‘I’m going to set myself goals for next year’, but I just never do. Either I do and forget about them come January 2nd or I just never make the effort to actually set myself any. But hey up.. this year I’ve decided I’m going to give myself a few little targets to try and push myself towards for next year! I actually think this would be a good post for myself to look back at this time next year to see if I’ve actually managed to complete them! Ah let’s start I’m excited!
* Start doing more crazy/adventurous makeup looks –
This is something I’ve well and truly slacked this year, I tend to always play it save with things I know will suit my face etc, but I really want to try and go out of my comfort zone a little and post more crazy looks.
* Try harder on Instagram –
After creating my Instagram account dedicated purely to my blog, I’ve been trying so hard to keep up to date on it. I post at least once a day or at least try to, my goal is definitely to try a lot harder with it & make my content/theme on there a lot more modern and eye catching!
* Create better content on my blog –
Since I started my blog I’ve only posted what I’ve wanted to post, which is all I’d ever do! I wouldn’t post something I didn’t feel confident in, this year I really want to get personal and go a little bit more in-depth with my life etc.. I’m still 100% going to focus on the beauty side of things I want to try and upload videos to my blog, maybe of me doing an eyeshadow look of some sort! I also want to focus my blog on being positive and body positivity as I know that’s very important to me.
* Become Self-Hosted –
I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now, a few weeks back I signed up to IPage which is a self hosting company (they are a total scam so please don’t self host with them). I’m definitely looking at self hosting my blog early next year.
* Blog Makeover –
I want to give my blog a makeover, I’ve been searching for different themes I think would suit my blog! I just need to be self hosted to do so
* Start a YouTube Channel –
YouTube is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, but the thought of it always terrifies me haha! I’m hoping to pluck up the courage to start next year
* Collabs –
I’d absolutely love to collab with bloggers next year, I’ve been wanting to do a collab for ages now but just haven’t found anyone that would want to do it – if you’d like to please message me haha! I also want to feature more family and friends etc
* Make friends with bloggers –
This is something I’ve been wanting to do for ages, probably since I started blogging! I find it so awkward trying to talk to other bloggers I have no idea why🙈 but next year I definitely want to try and make some new blogging friends!
* Attend an Event? –
Again this is something I’d love to do, attending a bloggers event would be an absolute dream come true for me.
* Hit 1000 on instagram –
When I hit 100 followers on my instagram I freaked out! My goal for this time next year is to hopefully have 1000 instagram followers. That would be amazing
* 500 followers on my Blog –
For some people having 500 followers on your blog is nothing but to me honestly that would make my year. I try so hard, so to have this amount of followers would literally make me so so happy
* OOTDs –
I’ve done the odd OOTD here and there, but I really want to start posting them a lot more. Maybe do like a week in outfits every Sunday on my blog? As a plus size girl I love looking at what other plus size gals are wearing and how they’re styling their outfits etc.
* Work hard –
Next year I’m hoping to find a new job, I wish blogging could be my full time job but sadly that’s not going to happen and I need to make money to buy all the latest bits and bobs. I’ve been in the same job for the past 4 years! So I’m hoping to find somewhere else real soon (for personal reasons-a post will be up sometime next year).
What are your goals for 2019? Leave them in the comments so I can have a nosey 🖤
thank you for reading, until next time
