Reflecting on my 2018 Goals

In January this year, I wrote up a few goals that I wanted to achieve in 2018. You can read them here. I haven't achieved all of them, but I have tried my best and taken 2018 as it came. 

I wanted to eat healthier, start up a fitness routine and start dance classes again...
I joined the gym with Liam, there's no way I would go by myself! And, I actually stuck to a fitness routine until July. Since I came back from Mexico, I just couldn't be arsed. I've only been to the gym a couple of times since. But, I am so determined to get back into it in the new year and get my body back to how I want it. 
I never got round to start dance classes again, just because I had hardly no money at the start of the year and I was more focused on going to the gym instead. Also, now I work full time, I've struggled to find a dance class on a certain day and time. I'm sure I'll find one though.

I wanted to blog more...
So, this happened for the first few months of this year. But then it all went downhill haha. I love blogging and wish I could find more time for it, I always have so many ideas! I'm going to try and do it in 2019. 

I wanted to get another job alongside being a mobile nail technician...
 This time last year, I was a self employed nail technician and as I had only just started out being mobile, I weren't earning much money. So, I wanted a part time job along side it, and got a job at Bannatyne as a receptionist. However, that didn't work out for very long and I ended up getting a part time job as a beauty therapist in a little salon in the centre of Norwich.

 I had passed all my beauty therapy qualifications by May 2018. Since September, I have been working full time as a beauty therapist in a new, bigger and more popular salon and I am loving every minute of it!

I never started YouTube...
I wanted to get back into filming videos and vlogging for YouTube, but I have had a lot going on this year so I never got round to it. Also, considering that I'm now working full time, I literally wouldn't have the time to film anyway. 

I wanted to save up...
After paying for my beauty therapy course and paying monthly for my holiday, I literally had no money left. But, I'm now back on track! Me and Liam have opened a savings account together and hopefully we can put a deposit down on a house this time next year. 

Some of these goals will be entering 2019 with me, I will achieve them! Did you achieve your goals?


  1. Learning to make wiser choices with many and not spending so much is definitely something I need to seriously work in this year.

    1. I can definitely agree with you on the spending one. I spent so much money on stuff I didn't even need x

  2. We have the same goals. Hopefully we both could achieve it this year.
