2019 Goals

This year I've decided I'm going to make my 2019 goals a little bit more realistic, i.e no Caroline you probably won't save because you have a spending problem, and you love 2am McDonalds too much to lose weight. You also seem to upload blog posts when they're actually relevant (is mid January too late to put up 2019 goals?) Well regardless, here we go, my 2019 'realistic' goals for the year! 

Last year, because of work I actually managed to visit more UK cities than I had before including Liverpool, Manchester and Loughborough but I really want to add more to my list, including Oxford and Cambridge as apparently they're amazingly beautiful so any recommendations would be fab! 

Of course there are a billion more things I want to see and do in London so a goal of mine is to visit more and more London attractions including visiting Kew Gardens. I know so many people who have said it's one of their favourite spaces in London so once the weather isn't grey and miserable more like a Summer goal I'm definitely going to go. Another on my London to-do is the Hidden London Underground Tour which I actually just booked tickets to do so am already ahead of the game on that goal!  

I'm also really keen to do a Charity Run this year. The one problem is that I can't really run well, or at all. I'm useless so I think I would need to start off with something like a 5k to ease myself in but I know I do need to get on to booking it in because you have to sign up quite early! 

I never actually took note of how many books I read last year so I thought this year I would not only set a goal to read 40 books, yes a little ambitious but to note them all down so I can actually keep track. First book of the year is going to be Into The Water by Paula Hawkins so please give me your recommendations, 40 is a lot to get through but I'm determined! 

My last goal in 2019 is not to also put too much pressure on myself with this blog! I kind of haven't blogged as you can see for a while and to be honest with a full time job it's really hard to keep it going especially when you do have collabs and opportunities, so I'm going to obviously try and stick to 3 times a week but don't be surprised if there isn't a blog post for weeks at a time haha! For example, it's been over a week since I last blogged, these things happen!

Let me know in the comments below what your 2019 goals are! 



  1. Cambridge is beautiful - highly recommend going!

    My 2019 goals are near enough the same - focusing on self love, happiness and kindness! As well as doing charity work!
