Monthly Goals // November 2018

I’m really happy for November to be here as there are so many great things planned, I’m not as busy as October but it’s still going to be a cracking month. It’s going to be excited over the coming weeks as there are a couple of things lined up. For starters, November is my birthday month, with a fun action packed weekend and I will be at Silverstone for a murder mystery.

I have been able to achieve most of my Goals I set at the beginning of October I have proved that if I put my mind to it, I can achieve. Here we are again to first reflect on my previous Goals and then set some new ones for November. I visited Castle Combe with my MG Rover family, picked a pumpkin for the first time and wandered around Milton Keynes.

I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // October 2018 here. Before I set myself some new Goals for November, let’s reflect on my October Goals!

Comment on Blog Posts | Done! I have been able to smash October‘s Goal and reach over 600 views on An Ocean Glimmer. This is thanks to sharing my content on all my social media platforms and participating in comment pods. I have shared the love and had it returned, I have also come across some great blogs this way!

Plan November & Blogmas Content | Half done, I’ve been able to plan all and schedule most of my November posts. When it comes to Blogmas content, I have got a couple of ideas. I have a couple of holiday days coming up soon so I will be using these to plan and maybe even write the content.

Increase Twitter & Instagram Stats | It’s been a good month for Twitter and Instagram, I have been able to increase my following and my analytics are looking good. The results aren’t as strong as I had hoped but I’m on the up! I forgot how hard Instagram was to improve, I have everything crossed for November and December.

Continue Being Strong | Yup! Most definitely achieved. All my statistics have increased, I’m looking forward to the end of 2018, I’ve reached one of my main Goals of reaching 15k views on An Ocean Glimmer. After my dip in April, I knew I wasn’t going to reach the Goal of reaching 20k views. With an increase in views from September, I’m definitely moving in the correct direction.

Visit Millets Farm | Done! If you read my Monthly Favourites | October 2018, you’ll know that I visited Millets Farm and picked up a pumpkin! I’ve never been to a pumpkin patch before, I had a great day, it was nice to get out of the house and wander around. I didn’t realise how big the place was. Celebrations for Halloween are done, let’s get into the Christmas spirit!

Let’s get to my November Goals!

Reach 1k Instagram Followers | I swear I’ve been trying to increase my Instagram following for the whole of 2018. I would love to reach 1,000 followers in November, I’m just under 200 away but it’s soo hard, how could it be this hard!? If you’re not already following me, what are you waiting for? I always try to share whatever I’m up to.

Visit MCM Comic Con | I have never been to a Comic Con, for as long as I can remember I have wanted to go to one. I am a massive geek at heart and I know how much I would love it, quite freaky this year’s Birmingham MCM Comic Con is on my birthday weekend! Now my parents only live half an hour away, I’ve brought tickets. I’m super excited to go.

Plan Blogmas Content | I have thankfully planned and schedule most of my November content. Now it’s a good time to move onto Blogmas! I would love to get hopefully the first week or two planned out, maybe I could even start writing. As I had over ten days of holiday to use, I’ve taken most of these in November. I will use these days to plan the content.

Spend Time Outside | It’s now November and Autumn is definitely in full swing, it’s cold outside but that won’t stop me from enjoying being outside. I am such an outdoors person and I don’t want the weather to stop me. I need to spend time outside and just visiting places around me.

Finish Christmas Shopping | I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’m just over half way with my Christmas shopping, I would love to be able to finish my Christmas shopping. This way I’ll be able to spend more time having fun and relaxing in December, not worrying about presents!

Write and Sent Christmas Cards | This Goal goes hand in hand with the above, I would love to be organised and get most of my Christmas cards written and hopefully sent. I have brought all my family cards, I need to now organise who else I need to send a card to. Last year, I enjoyed sending cards to fellow bloggers, hopefully, I can do this again!

Spend More Time with Family | Family is very important to me, after moving from Plymouth and now no longer living with them it has been hard and now I hardly see them. I try to see them as much as I can, they are a couple of moments I should be able to see them this month. Including my birthday weekend!

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!

Monthly Goals // October 2018

Goodbye September! Hello October!

I’m really happy for October to be here as there are so many great things planned, I am pretty much busy each weekend. I thought October would start to slow down, oh how was I wrong. Autumn is here and it’s time to start getting festive, both for Halloween, my Birthday next month and finally, yes Christmas. I’ve had a really good September and have definitely felt good about myself.

Despite being really busy, thankfully I have been able to achieve quite a lot of my Goals. I have proved that if I put my mind to it, I can achieve, I have pushed myself and have been rewarded. I attended my last event at Silverstone this season as a Race Maker, visited Western Super Mare with my MG Rover family and work has been hectic as anything. I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // Septemer 2018 here.

I can’t understand where the past month has gone, especially as August is a five week month. I already know what’s coming as August wasn’t the best month, I know I haven’t been able to achieve them. I wasn’t able to push myself as much as I liked thanks to being super busy each week.

Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for August and creating some new ones for SeptemberAugust has been such a busy month! Who said August is quiet? Not only has work been busy but I have been up to a variety of things outside, from visiting Red Bull Racing and spending the weekend at Silverstone, I have shared my adventures in my Monthly Favourites // August 2018 here.

Monthly Goals // July 2018

We’re already halfway through the year, which means it’s less than six months until Christmas! Can you believe it?

June has definitely been a great month and things have been just a little busy with a couple of car shows and visiting Plymouth.

Monthly Goals // June 2018

Can you believe that it’s already the first week of June? Time seems to be going very quickly at the moment, I even keep forgetting what day it is! I think that’s what happens when you keep yourself busy, I don’t know about you but I love keeping myself busy and during the Summer you’re busy every single weekend. Another thing that comes with a new month is setting yourself some new Goals or you can even continue your old ones if you’ve yet to achieve them!

Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for May and creating some new ones for June. I always try to set Goals that reflect on what I plan to do during the month as well as little Goals to achieve bigger Goals. Some things you want to achieve in life don’t happen overnight! May has definitely been a great month and things are starting to pick up, there’s been a range of things I have loved over the course of the month. You can learn about all of those here.

6 Money Saving Tips for 2018

I suppose if you’re like myself, you dream of saving but it’s actually a lot harder than you realise! You see a cute dress in Primark and you just HAVE to have it, it’s super adorable and would be perfect for work and it’s only £5. Do you stop to think, do I actually need this? I’m meant to be saving for a car, or a mortgage, even a holiday, I know that exact feeling and it’s definitely harder than people make it seem.
