I’m really happy for December to be here as it’s finally Christmas! I’m sure some people are sick of Christmas already with shops having decorations up since September but I always start from the first of December. I have a couple of exciting things coming up but primarily I cannot wait to travel back home to Plymouth. It’s going to be strange not celebrating Christmas with my family.
Today I am going to be reflecting on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of November. I love reflecting and creating new Goals each month, there’s something about it that makes me more determined to achieve them. With Christmas around the corner, I’m excited for the upcoming month. Also, a few of my Goals for December are blogging based.
Reach 1k Instagram Followers | Nope! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to reach 1k Instagram followers. I really pushed myself but I forgot how hard it was! I am currently on 882 so I have made an impact but not enough.
Visit MCM Comic Con | Done! I had such a lovely time, some of the costumes were absolutely amazing. I am now planning on visiting another next year. I have shared a couple of photos in my November Favourites.
Plan Blogmas Content | Done! I haven’t been able to write many posts ahead of time but thankfully I’ve planned out what I’m writing. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get my motivational head on and write to get back up to speed.
Spend Time Outside | Done! It’s been cold but definitely, worth it, I have visited Silverstone a couple of times and even Waddesdon Manor. November has been a good month for being outdoors.
Finish Christmas Shopping | Done! I am officially done with Christmas shopping, I was so happy when I picked up the final couple of items. It’s good to be organised and plan ahead when it comes to Christmas. Also, who thought to have an MOT in December? Yes me of course! I’ll be needing money for that.
Write and Sent Christmas Cards | Nope! I have done a couple with sending the Autumnal Swap Box with always believe in a miracle and Blogger Secret Santa but I’ve still got a long list. I need to do these soon to not miss the Christmas post!
Spend More Time with Family | As mentioned before, family is very important to me. That’s why I decided to spend a long weekend with my grandparents to celebrate my birthday. I was even able to see my parents and sisters when I went to Silverstone for the Stunt & Fireworks Show.
Let’s get to my December Goals!
Complete Blogmas | I’m doing something a little different this year for Blogmas. Rather than blogging all 25 days in December, I have decided to do 12 Days of Blogmas. I have everything planned out, I just need to write and take photos. I have everything crossed I can complete Blogmas 2018.
1k Instagram Followers | I have pushing myself to reach 1k followers on Instagram for as long as I know! I would love to achieve this Goal before the end of December and 2018. If you’re not already following me, what are you waiting for? I always try to share whatever I’m up to.
1k Blog Views | Leading up to this time last year, I was reaching between 800 and 1,000 views on An Ocean Glimmer. I have seen a small drop in 2018, I think this has to do with finally getting in the swing of things at work. I am going to push myself this December and hopefully reach 1k blog views. If I can reach this or even more, I will be in a similar place with my statistics for 2017.
Travel Home for Christmas | This year will be the first year of celebrating Christmas without my parents as we’re going home to Plymouth. I’m really excited about this and I really hope the weather is kind to us and we can travel to Plymouth.
Enjoy Christmas | Last but no means least, I would love to enjoy Christmas and everything about this festive period! We’re planning on visiting Oxford for their Christmas Market, going on the Christmas Train of Lights and just spending time with family.
I hope you have enjoyed this post! What is the one thing you would love to
achieve this month? Let me know in the comment!
