2016 Goals // Exciting Plans for Me and LSM

2016 New Years Resolutions

-Yoga

I’ve started Adriene from Yoga with Adriene‘s 30 day challenge. I got into Yoga a bit last year but I find it really hard to stick to excersizing and it was a half hour drive away which meant I just stopped going when my friend wasn’t there to make me feel guilty and drag me along! This is something I can do from home which definitely appeals to the lazy side of me and I feel like if I do it for 30 days then it will become a habit. After January I plan on doing it at least twice a week!

-Me time

This is a selfish one but aren’t all resolutions kinda selfish? Anyway, I spend a lot and I mean a lot of time on my phone and I’m constantly ‘working’ or plugged into social media. Therefore this year I plan to make time for me, I guess the yoga is classed as me time as well but I’m talking about indulging and relaxing. I don’t remember the last time I sat down and read a magazine, I’ve got a subscription to ELLE and I’ve got no less than 10 copies sat in the corner of my room begging to be read. So each evening I plan to take some time, even if it’s just half an hour, to read a magazine, paint my nails, do a face mask and just switch off.

-Read more

When I was younger I used to read so much, now I’m lucky if I get through a couple of books a year and I pretty much only read on holidays. From now on I’m going to try and read for half an hour at least before bed each evening! Reading is such a good way of relaxing and getting to sleep and not to mention great for your writing and imagination which, as a blogger can only be a good thing right?

2016 Blogging Goals

-Youtube

This year I’m doing it! Youtube, watch out there’s a new kid on the block. . well there will be. . if I stop being a big girls blouse and finally sit down and do it. The thing is I’ve got a list of excuses and reasons I can’t do it yet as long as my arm and really all I need to do is start. I will this year, I promise, you have my word!

Any one familiar with youtube I would love to hear your thoughts on best ways to edit and if i need some kind of special light for it?! Or is that just for the super youtube pros? Also if you’re just a reader of the blog I would love to hear if you’d be interested in a youtube channel, firstly, would you even watch it? Secondly, what kind of videos would you like to see?!

-Bloglovin

This year I need to crack Bloglovin, I seriously do not get it! Or should I say i don’t get how to get myself out there on it and gain followers? I guess the obvious answer is to write good content and the followers will come but I feel like I only get followers when I promote Bloglovin! If anyone knows of any tips to get yourself noticed on Bloglovin‘ and utilise it then I would be super duper eternally grateful!

P.S – Follow me on Bloglovin’?

-Post more frequently

So last year I started my blog and I’ve been doing my best to make it something people like and enjoy reading. This year I plan on getting more content and posting more often, I would love for it to become something that people see as an authority in the fashion blogging world – of course so does everyone, so this is definitely my aim! We Wore What, Sincerely Jules, watch your backs, Sinead Crowe is coming for you!

2016 Plans

-Travelling

Something crazy happened at the beginning of this year. On new years day my boyfriend suggested we went travelling, on the 2nd of January we booked our flights. Everything in my body screamed “no! Don’t do it”, I’ve made it pretty clear in this blog how bad my anxiety was last year and I do still struggle with it at times, but I think this is something I need to do.

Travelling has never been something that I’ve been particularly desperate to do but I can’t imagine doing it with someone better and I know he knows me the best and will take amazing care of me. Now that I’ve started looking on Pinterest (see below) I am so excited about all of the beautiful places I’m going to see and experiences I’m going to have. Sometimes I think it’s good to step outside of your comfort zone and this is a giant leap outside of mine, but hey, at least I’ll be taking that leap with my best friend! – woah, super soppy!

So if anyone has any tips if they’ve been travelling before then I would love to hear them! The current plan is 2 months in Indonesia travelling round, and 1 month in Thailand, Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam / not 100% sure this is still to be decided!

I guess now you’re wondering what this means for my blog? Well I’ve already thought this out and I won’t be stopping, I’m just planning on turning it into a bit of a travel blog for the 3 months I’m out there! Hey it may even be a new niche, how to be stylish whilst travelling?!

    Reading more is on my goals list as well. I plan on reading 20 books this year not including academic books. I’d totally watch your YouTube, would you watch mine haha that’s the question! 😛 Travelling is honestly the best, I did a lot of travelling this year and it really helps put everything into perspective. I hope 2016 is an amazing year for you and I look forward to seeing your blog grow. X

    Some fab goals! I’ve loved reading these posts recently.. Every bloggers seems quite similar, we all want to better ourselves and that’s really empowering. 🙂
    I don;t really get Bloglovin, butter me it is the main platform I use to read blogs, so if I see a link for someones blog, have a read and like it, I’ll follow it, so I can keep up with it on there. 🙂 I generally tweet my link to bloglovin a few times a week and after twitter chats. 🙂

    Great goals! I’m trying to read more novels, I used to read loads of novels when I was I a child but then I switched to reading newspapers and magazines. Now that I’m at university, I find I don’t read many novels anymore just because I study an essay-based degree so I have to read so many books and that gets in the way. I tried to read more last year in the summer but that plan failed, so I want to make more of an effort to read more this year. I need to make time for it so I’d probably start reading before I got to bed or when I wake up in the morning.

    Also, I want to travel more but I think I’ll start trying to do that from 2017 onwards.
