2019 : My Goals For The Year Ahead

I love making fresh, new goals for the new year, it always make me feel so motivated and excited for the year ahead. Not long ago, I had written up a reflection of my 2018 goals and to be honest, I didn't achieve much of those. So, lets try again this year!

This goal is more for 2020, but this year, Liam and I need to stay in our mindset of getting our own place. We are still in the middle of saving up and we are literally going to save up as much as we can this year for our own home. So this time next year, I either want to have a deposit put down on a house or be in our own home already. I know it's not as easy as it sounds and it's actually stressing me out already thinking about it. But, I'm going to try not to get stressed about it. It will all fall into place.

Considering we would like to get married in 2021, it's really not too far away and most venues get booked up a year and a half ahead. I have a wedding planner book that I have already started, so hopefully we don't have too much to organise next year. We've already set a budget for our wedding and have contacted the venues that we like for a show round. Once we have the venue booked, everything else will hopefully fall into place. I'll plan little bits and bobs for our wedding this year that I can. All the bigger stuff, we'll leave till next year. Again, I'm not going to stress about it as we have two years.

This was a goal for last year which I didn't really achieve. But, I will definitely get my body back to how I want it this year. I have recently put on SO MUCH weight, I'm the biggest I've ever been. And because I'm only 5'1 and have short stumpy legs, I look even bigger. So, I have gone back to the gym and started my dance classes again. Also, because I'm getting married, this has made me more motivated to get into a fitness routine too. The old Meg bod will be back in no time and the triple chins will disappear!

I used to have such a good skincare routine going but within the last seven/eight months, I have sadly gone back to using makeup wipes. After a nine hour shift, getting home, eating dinner, I can't be bothered to properly cleanse my face. So I've always grabbed the makeup wipes. Basically, I'm lazy af. So, I'm going to use the last of my makeup wipes, I think there's like four left in the pack, and not buy any more! Whether I'll stick to this idea or pop into Tesco and grab some wipes, who knows? It's one of those easier said than done resolutions.

I have really been struggling to keep up with my blog recently, especially over the Christmas period because I have been super busy at work. But, I have taken this week off work as holiday so I can just chill and get little bits and bobs done. I installed a new template for my blog, let me know if you like it. I'll also try and improve my blog photos this week for upcoming posts until I'm 100% happy with them.

I'm always too busy wondering what everyone else thinks. I need to do more of what makes me happy.

What are your goals for 2019?

    1. It's so hard to save isn't it - especially nowadays as everything is ridiculously expensive!! x

  3. Can I just copy your list? Besides booking a wedding venue, I have the same goals. I also thought about taking some dance classes cause I love to dance but don't actually know how to dance haha
