December Goals!

Can you believe it's December!? I've done zero Christmas shopping so far, and will no doubt leave it until the last minute as usual. In terms of goals, results were not optimal, to say the least. I did do a massive clean-up around the house though, I just didn't get around to my desk or my makeup organiser. Despite this, most rooms are looking quite good now, and I'm feeling a lot more organised! Here's how I did with my November Goals...

  1. Publish at least 10 blog posts again ~ NO (8 is close though).
  2. Create a Beauty Spreadsheet listing staples with prices and dates ~ YES (well, I've started)
  3. Finally change to my married name! ~ NO (this will take a lot of preparation)
  4. Clean out and re-organise cutlery drawer ~ YES! So. Much. Better.
  5. Set up regular online grocery shopping and home delivery ~ NO
  6. First-time watch 7 movies ~ NO. I only first-time watched 4 (Horrible Bosses 2, Dumb And Dumber To, Spy, Skyfall)
  7. Clean out and re-organise makeup organiser ~ NO (but I did clean up the entire bedroom)
  8. Clear and clean my desk ~ NO (but the kitchen is 95% done now!)
  9. Be awesome (sorry, I wanted an easy one!) LOLOL ~ YES, obviously! (joking)
  10. Buy a 2016 Diary! ~ YES! One for my blog and one for everything else.

RESULT - 4/10 and a lot of excuses.

OK, so December will be mega-busy, with builders working on our house, presents to buy, a shit-ton of Christmas comps to enter each day plus blogging, so I'll be realistic and halve my Goals.

December Goals

  1. Eat healthier in general (except Christmas Day)
  2. Drink more water
  3. Clear and clean my desk (minimalism!)
  4. Don't get overwhelmed by comps and/or feel the need to enter every single Christmas Countdown competition! (compers will get this one)
  5. Clear and clean makeup organiser and toss unused/old products

  3. Since starting blogging I have entered hardly any competitions at all, only some of the ones I come across when reading blogs! Where do you find the time? Enjoy your December!

    1. Thanks, Ingrid! I don't know, I just somehow find time for everything. It's a bit stressful, but I try to balance my days :)

  4. I really need to tidy my desk, I have taken over the whole dinner table with my blogging and work stuff... what did you think about skyfall? I saw spectre recently and quite liked it!

    1. I didn't mind Skyfall, Lily. I generally don't like Bond films, but for some reason I like the Daniel Craig ones! Weird!

  5. I like to tackle organization projects over the weekend when I have time to focus minus interruptions. Even though you weren't able to accomplish everything it looks like you're off to a great start. Good luck with your list!

    1. Thanks Cara! Weekends are a great time to get everything organised for the week ahead Thanks for reading!

  6. Good luck with your goals! You got this :)


  7. Good luck with your new goals. I definitely get the competition one haha I'm struggling so bad! xx

    1. Oh I didn't know you entered comps too! It's crazy isn't it? I have at least 40 comps on my daily countdown to xmas list, then there's my usual daily comps list and all the other ones I do. And that's just FB, not even counting Insta and the web ones. LOL! xx

  8. Maybe I need to set myself a goal of cleaning my dressing table. I do it regularly, but it's used as a dumping ground so often, it's hard to tell.


Max and I love reading your comments! We will do our best to visit your blog and comment, too :)
