I cannot believe we’re already over half way through 2020, like where is the year going! Also I don’t even feel like I’ve achieved or done that much to be honest this year, and I suppose that’s kinda true with the whole lockdown and Coronavirus thing. At the moment, every month is definitely rolling into one, during lockdown, I even lost track of days. I’m glad I’m finally back into a ‘normal’. I hope you and your family are all keeping well.
Back in January, I shared with you my 2020 Personal Goals, here I outlined exactly what I wanted to achieve over the course of the year. Now we’re nearly in August, I thought it would be the perfect time to reflect on my Personal Goals and provide an update on progress. It also helps me to know where I am with my Goals and with five months remaining in 2020, if I have yet to achieve something that I set out at the beginning of the year, then I’ve definitely got the time too!
I know I share my Monthly Goals but this doesn’t show the overall year story. When I’m setting my Monthly Goals, I try and keep my 2020 Goals in mind. It can be hard achieving your Goals, especially if it’s one you want to achieve in one year. Your Goals can be a lot easier to achieve if you think about them monthly but then also break them down to weekly and daily. If you don’t create Monthly Goals, now, more than ever, is a great time to start creating Monthly Goals!

It’s no surprise I love stationery if you don’t know this, where have you been! I’m always sharing my stationery favourites and today is no different. Now, you might just recognise this from Instagram because I have enjoyed sharing it over there, but today’s post is about The Classy Planner. I wasn’t seeking out a new planner for 2020, but I came across this one and I fell in love! As a stationery addict, I couldn’t say no.
I know, I know, before you say anything, yes I did purchase this in the Coronavirus pandemic but I still need a diary to understand what I’m doing! Also, this is more than just a planner, all will be revealed soon in this post. Now, before looking inside The Turquoise Classy Planner, I wanted to introduce you to Greta, the person behind The Classy Planner.
Goodbye April! Hello May!
I hope you are all well and trying to live life as normal as possible. It’s hard to continue as ‘normal’ because what is normal anymore but this is the only thing we can do. Enough chit chat, about what we can’t control, today is the start of May – a perfect time to reflect on my Favourites for April. Now, this is definitely no ‘normal’ favourites! Just like March, my Favourites is exactly that – what I have loved throughout April.
If you following me on Instagram, you might just recognise some of my Favourites as I’ve been sharing with you A LOT of content on Instagram. I didn’t realise until updating my Goals, actually how much I have shared to Instagram – I hope you have enjoyed the content. What has been one of your Favourites from April? Let me know in the comments! I’ll love to know.
Here in the UK, we have been in lockdown since Monday 23 March. With working in PR and Marketing, I have been able to continue working, Monday to Friday, from home of course. It’s been an interesting one as in the past, it’s only been one or two days maximum. So I haven’t had very much downtime during the week to think, what should I do today?
I know there are a lot of people who unfortunately have been furloughed, Yasmine is one of them so I thought today I would share with you some ways to keep busy during the lockdown. Just remember, we’re all in this together and if you need someone to speak to, I am always here. I’m lucky as I live with family but I know some people are on their own.
Have I ever said how much I adore Spring? This season makes me happy! I swear this time of year does wonders for everything! With longer and warmer days it’s no surprise really. Normally this would also mean more adventures… but I’m sure you all know how well that is going! I’m not going to mention the thing that shall not be mentioned – I’m sure you all know what I’m talking about.
Goodbye March! Hello April!
I hope you’ve had a lovely start to April. As it’s the beginning of a new month, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of March. Then create new Goals for April, which is going to be an odd month! I love setting new Goals, they get you excited for the upcoming month.
If you want to see what I got up to in March, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // March 2020 here. It’s great to review and reflect each month, sometimes you even forget what you’ve done. March was a OK month, the world is a strange one at the moment. I don’t think any of us know if we’re coming or going.
Before I set myself some new Goals for April, let’s reflect on my March Goals!
Goodbye March! Hello April!
March has been such an odd month… I’m not sure about yours but for me, it’s just been everywhere. I’ve never experienced a month like it, I know you know what I’m talking about. You just need to keep moving and think happy things, that’s one reason why I’ve been able to keep up my blogging game. Before moving forward to April, now is a great time to review what I did in March with my Monthly Favourites. Although, not a lot happened! My Favourites is exactly that, what I loved in March.
It’s time to reflect on March.
I think now is more important than ever to introduce self care habits into your life. We’re all struggling at the moment, I’m not going to go into detail but I’m sure you know what I’m talking about! Today I thought I would share just a couple of self care habits I’m introducing into my life, hopefully I can inspire you to introduce these into your life.
But first, what is self care?
Self-care is defined as “the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress.”
It’s great to have a Goal in mind, not just a daily or weekly one but yearly as well. I love creating Goals, I feel so inspired and it’s a great way to continue achieving. Back in July, I shared with you my 2019 Fitness Goals, here I outlined exactly what I wanted to achieve over the course of the year. Now we’re in May, it’s the perfect time to reflect on my Fitness Goals and provide an update on progress.
I know I share my Monthly Goals but this doesn’t show the overall year story. When I’m setting my Monthly Goals, I try and keep my 2019/20 Goals in mind. It can be hard achieving your Goals, especially if it’s one you want to achieve in one year. Your Goals can be a lot easier to achieve if you think about them monthly. If you don’t create Monthly Goals, I would recommend starting now.
Goodbye February! Hello March!
I hope you’ve had a lovely start to March. As it’s the beginning of a new month, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the Goals I set myself at the beginning of February. Then create new Goals for March, I’m really excited about the upcoming month. It’s going to be a good one – I’m looking forward to the weather getting that warmer, hopefully. There are some exciting things planned for March.
If you want to see what I got up to in February, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // February 2020 here. It’s great to review and reflect each month, sometimes you even forget what you’ve done. February was a good month, I’m very happy and excited to share with you my Favourites! Now onwards to March and hopefully another good month.
Before I set myself some new Goals for March, let’s reflect on my February Goals!
