  • Autumn goals: 2018

    It’s now officially Autumn. I honestly couldn’t be happier as it’s my favourite season! I just love everything that comes with the season, all the cosy jumpers, hot drinks and fluffy scarfs. I don’t know what it is about Autumn but it makes me so motivated and as I haven’t shared any goals blog or personal for a while so I thought with coming into a new season now would be the perfect time.

    October, November & December are the BEST months of the year for me and I know everyone says it but I love when there’s so much happening. My birthday is in October and once that’s over it’s basically Christmas for me. SO, to say I’m excited for the next few months is an understatement.


    Get back into running

    I feel like I’ve really let myself down with not carrying on with running since I completed the Great Birmingham 10K. My fitness and health have suffered as I’ve not been exercising regularly, I’ve just not been making an effort at all but hopefully this is going to change. No, this WILL change. On Thursday I’m going to be an official member of a running club! I know, I can’t believe it either. I’m hoping this will motivate me to get back into running and sign up to more races.

    Even though I struggled running my 10K a few months back I probably didn’t do enough training, so joining the running club will help when I do want to run some more races including some more 10k’s I have my eye on and maybe even a half marathon in the distant future, okay.. very distant future.

    Go to a pumpkin patch

    Last year I saw so many amazing photo’s at pumpkin patches and was so jealous. I obviously want to go to a pumpkin patch to pick a pumpkin but while I’m there I may as well take a few photos, right?! It only make sense. Hopefully this year I can make some time to go to one.

    Start driving lessons

    If you didn’t see my tweet last Thursday I finally passed my theory test. It’s took me longer than I would have liked but it’s finally done and now I can get on with my driving lessons although about 4 years ago I was having lessons and actually had quite a few but had to stop when I was diagnosed with cancer. I don’t think I could have carried on with them during treatment so unfortunately I had to stop but now is the right time and I have already asked a driving instructor about availability so hopefully it shouldn’t be long until I start again.

    Visit one new place

    I haven’t been anywhere new in a while and it’s one of my favourite things to do, finding new places makes my heart happy. In a few weeks I’m going to London for a couple of days and planning on visiting a few new places while I’m there which I haven’t been to before but I just love little road trips to cute places so I definitely want to visit at least one new place in Autumn.


    Save more money

    I’m obsessed with saving money right now. In the past I’ve always been a spender, I will literally drop hundreds on new clothes without thinking about it but recently any spare money I’ve got, I have been putting away as with driving lessons, Christmas and I want to buy my own little car soon so it’s a big few months money wise. I’ve got myself a saving’s goal every month so let’s hope I can stick with it!

    Confirm more collaborations

    The only blog goal I have but it’s one I really want to make happen. I’ve worked with a few brands now and I really want to make the jump and make my blog something I’m extremely proud of, not that I’m not proud of it now but I just want to take it to the next level. I’m currently customizing a new media kit which I’ll be sending out very soon, I’m nervous as I’ve never reached out myself to brands before but more excited!

    Go on more walks

    I just love getting outdoors and with the weather getting colder I love to wrap up in a big scarf and fluffy hat and take long walks. I said this last year but hardly got out and about. I love going on public footpaths and seeing the beautiful surroundings so I’ll have to try and make some time this year to get out in the fresh air.

        Ah, thank you! I’m going to try my hardest to get to a pumpkin patch, the photo’s I saw last year were just so good! x

    2. September 26, 2018 / 7:04 pm

      I love reading seasonal goals and i have a few of the same as you, i want to start driving lessons too! But good luck!x

      I am still yet to go to a Pumpkin Patch, I really want to go to one. I just feel like it would get you into the Halloween spirit so much! Driving lessons is something I just keep putting off and off, maybe one year I will actually start doing them! Going to new places and confirming more collabs is always one of my goals, it is always so nice to visit somewhere new and it is always so nice to work with another brand! Going for a walk regardless of the weather is always so relaxing x

      • October 2, 2018 / 4:40 pm

        I really hope we both get to go to one this year! Omg, yes, I’d feel so much more in the spirit if I took photos with some pumpkins haha. It’s something I was putting off because my anxiety just Em wouldn’t let me but I’m so glad I’ve booked some I just hope I do well 🙈 I’ve literally just confirmed a collab with one brand so I hope the good news keeps on coming! Oh I completely agree x

      I set goals for myself as well, I feel like posting them on my blog motivates me a little more to stick to them? I really loved the goals you set for yourself this autumn and I can’t wait to read your post for winter goals!

      • October 2, 2018 / 4:41 pm

        I completely get that, I feel like if I write them down somewhere that actually seem real haha. Ah, thank you!

      • October 2, 2018 / 4:42 pm

        The photo’s always look amazing so I’m really hoping I get to go to one this year. Aw, thank you!

    5. September 26, 2018 / 7:24 pm

      Great list of goals! I actually relate to a lot of them haha, my birthday is in October too! Ahh I’m so excited! I am trying to get back into a better workout fitness routine myself, and I also want to go to a Pumpkin Patch here soon, it doesn’t feel like Fall if you don’t go to one! Great post xo

      • October 8, 2018 / 8:07 am

        Thank you! Ahhh NO WAY 🎉 It’s so hard to get into a workout routine but once you have once it becomes a lot easier. Oh I completely agree xo

    6. September 26, 2018 / 7:30 pm

      Good luck with all your goals, I literally can’t wait for Autumn to kick in properly!, I love the idea of going to a pumpkin patch but there isn’t one near me. The thought of running on a crisp autumn morning seems so lovely!. Good luck with your driving lessons I’m currently doing mine as well, I absolutely love driving so far xx.

      Great goals! Super achievable too 🙂 I love Autumn and Winter the best as well, I just feel like I thrive in these seasons because I hate Summer so much!

      • October 8, 2018 / 8:17 am

        Yes, I hope so 🙌🏼 I’m exactly the same I don’t know why but I just seem to accomplish more in the colder months xo
