We’re already in August, where is this year going!? I’m super excited for august because I have so many great things planned including a girly holiday and my birthday but I really wanted to share my goals for this next month with everyone. I’m hoping that if I put them out there I’ll actually have to do and achieve them.
Get more creative with makeup again
Recently I’ve felt as though I’m in a bit of a rut with my make-up routine and I’m not really doing anything new or experimenting very much. This is partially because I now have a full-time job so I don’t have as much time to play with make-up and there’s only so far you can push a dramatic look so that it’s still suitable for work. With this being said, I want to work on more subtle looks and focus on other areas of makeup that I haven’t looked as so much before. I really want to aim to try new colours and palettes that I haven’t used in ages and hopefully get some more creativity flowing.
Start creating art again
Following on from the first point, I really feel like I’ve lost a little creativity lately and I’m craving it back. Since finishing university I’ve created very little art outside of work (I work in a nursery where I develop art projects for children), so I need to push myself to change that this month. I’ve found a local art society I really want to join and if I do I’ll have no choice but to make work for their exhibitions.
Get back into healthy eating
Since leaving university I haven’t really dieted at all, I’ve maintained my weight loss, but I haven’t lost much more just because I’ve been so busy I haven’t been able to properly get back into it. I feel like after my holiday (I go today!) I’ll be ready to start as I’m staying in an all-inclusive resort so I’m literally going to be eating and drinking for an entire week, I can’t wait. I’m not un-happy with how I look, quite the opposite but I know I would just feel better if I was healthier.
Become more consistent with my blog
Over the past few weeks I’ve re-discovered how much I really love my blog but I’m still trying to find the right work/life balance. Through august I really want more consistency in my blog as I currently have none (this post was meant to go up on the 1st, oops) and I want to try to get at least two posts up a week. I have some really exciting things coming up so I really want to share and post about them. I’ve even planned the next month or so’s posts which is definitely a step in the right direction.
Save some dollar
Now that I’m working and getting a decent wage I really want to try and save some of it. I’ve been on a little spending haul recently because I’ve been using my holiday as an excuse, so I simply MUST get all of these clothes and a tonne of new makeup that I really didn’t need. Having ‘spare’ money will be an entirely new concept for me as I’m used to student finance coming every few months and having to live off that lump sum. I’m so excited to feel a little bit more financially secure.
So, there are my goals for august, as well as to just enjoy the month of course. I’m looking forward to seeing how well I get on with these goals and there will definitely be an update at the end of the month to see if I’ve managed any of them.
Have you got any goals for this month? Let me know!
