My February To-Do List

Although we're already 10 days into February, I love having a to-do list each month as not only do I love ticking off a list can you name anything more satisfying but there is such a great sense of accomplishment no matter how big or small your list is, completing something off it, makes you feel pretty fabulous.  

Finish And Start A New Book - I've just finished two January reads, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (we all know who by). Of course Harry Potter is a re-read and I am re-reading them from start to finish so Prison of Azkaban is next and will be read in February, but I like to read another book on the side, so on my list next is Still Me by Jo Jo Moyes or Three Things About Elsie by Joanna Cannon

Make More Of The Weekends - I am a total sucker for a night-in and a cosy weekend, but I have to say even I'm realising that I probably do that FAR too often. Although Sundays I do really like to make time for myself, go to the gym, chores and other fun things like that, my Fridays and Saturdays really need to be a bit more exciting so I'm trying to make more of an effort to plan drinks, nights out and family visits on the weekends. 

Bank Blog Content - I've become a little slack in banking my blog content as I find it really hard to be motivated and find inspiration for photos and content for  more than 3 blog post at a time. I take all my photos on the weekend as I work full-time so it's quite hard to plan so far ahead if I'm busy one weekend and need to plan the weekend before. 

Re-Invest In Skincare -  I've totally been slacking in my skincare routine, and you can definitely tell. I've been having seriously bad breakouts on my nose and chin and I know for sure it's because I've forgotten to repurchase some favourites. I need to reinvest in my Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Oil and the T-Zone Charcoal & Bamboo Face Wash which hopefully will fix it in the end! 

Start Saving, Saving, Saving - Although I just spent a hefty amount on two gorgeous coats from Zara yesterday guilty, I am very aware I need to start putting money into my savings. I'm going to make a conscious effort from this month onwards to put money away each month into my savings (oh and also my holiday fund!) 

Let me know in the comments below what you've got planned this month and what's on your To-Do list! 



  1. I really need to work on banking blog content as well and making sure I have plenty of photos to use because it's so easy to get behind! Hope you're having a fab Feb so far! xo

  2. I'm yet to read the Harry Potter books - I need to read them this year! The new Jo Jo Moyes book is also on my list to read! x

  3. I am so desperate to read the new Jo Jo Moyes book but I know I am not gonna have time to read it anytime soon :( Hate college sometimes! Lol

  5. I want to spend more time planning content for the blog too however that said I don't like to restrict myself too much either x

  6. My weekends have been pretty dull lately, too! It's hard to save money and go out at the same time haha.

  7. I'm really bad for night's and lazy morning's in - I just can't help myself, I love my bed too much! I also need to crack down with saving, I've been extremely slack the past few months and I need to give myself a kick up the butt and get much better xo

  8. Reading is a great goal to make, I really need to finish my book I've been reading! It's hard to find the time but its so worth it. Good luck with all of your goals xx

    Sending light & love your way,

    My Lovelier Days

  9. I love writing blog posts but its just all the effort which goes into getting the right shot and thinking of new, innovative ideas for content! I'm so with you on this one!
