PERSONAL | My 2018 Goals
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a fab New Year’s eve. The time has come to share my 2018 goals, so let’s see what I’m going to try and accomplish this year..
I don’t want to make this post too lengthy, so I’m just going to jump right in with the goals I’ve set myself for 2018;
Continue to Blog Frequently – I’ve thoroughly enjoyed posting more content on my blog recently and last year and I want to continue doing this. I’ve watched my little space on the intent grow slowly but steadily and the support from you guys has been fab! I love blogging and I can’t believe how far I’ve come in terms of getting much better at writing – I’m not going to be the next famous author don’t get me wrong, but I’ve come a long way since I started this blog a few years ago – and I think I’ve finally found my blog photography style, which is soo exciting!
Grow my Instagram Following – I finally hit 3k followers over on Instagram – *follow me here* – and I’m really happy about it, everyone knows the algorithm has completely mugged us off and it’s been really hard to grow an organic following. I’m hoping I won’t dip back below 3k followers and I would love to reach 5k by the end of next year!
Make Photography my Full-time Career – 2017 was the year that I finally decided what I wanted to do for the rest of my life and that was to become a photographer. This was a massive step for me because I’m the least confident person you’ll find and putting myself out there like this is really scary for me. I’ve made a photography friend in the lovely Sam and I truly believe that she has helped me and my confidence massively – we’ve done a few shoots together and I’m excited for the future with my Photography.

Save for a House Deposit – As you would have read in my ‘Reflecting on my 2017 Goals’ post, I was doing extremely well with this and then a holiday to Mexico and a new phone happened and it hit me completely off track. I was awful with saving towards the end of the year and I really want to make up for that this year!
Continue Exploring More – I also visited a few new places last year and I really want to continue doing this in 2018. I think I might do a post on a few places I want to visit in 2018, as I do have a few on my list..
Get Better at Saving my Money – As mentioned above, I got really bad at saving towards the end of last year and I need to be more strict with myself – I think putting myself on a few spending bans will work wonders and just generally being more aware of how much I spend. I’m awful for spending money on clothes and then not even wearing them or only wearing them once and this has got to stop! I’ve definitely got better at not buying makeup – specifically eyeshadow palettes.. – so I need to do this with clothes too.
I think I set too many last year, so this year I’m just going to set myself five goals in the hope that I’ll achieve all of them! So here’s to 2018, let’s hope it’s a good one.
