Autumn Goals

At the beginning of this month I was kind of dreading autumn - I'll miss the long days, excuse for an ice cream and occasional sunny weather...
Now, I feel ready, and I'm kind of looking forward to the next few months. In April I set myself some summer goals, you can read how I got on with those here. Setting goals every 3 months worked so much better for me, I actually managed to get sh*t done! Here's what I want to achieve over the next few months...
1) Start vlogging
My main summer goal was to start a YouTube channel, which I did! But, I quickly realised that sitting down and filming videos unless it was a haul, favourites or something chatty wasn't that enjoyable. I love watching vlogs where you just get to see someone go about their day to day life, so that's hopefully what I'm going to be doing. I have a lot planned over the next few months so I want to document all that and just have fun with it. Plus my fiance goes away with work for 4 months at the start of November, so I really want to document what we get up to before he goes.

2) Become a calligraphy pro
I really want to hand write everything for the wedding, so I've set myself the challenge to learn calligraphy! I've been using this book and it's been such a good introduction to it all. Over the next few months I'm hoping to go to some workshops in Manchester and continue practising. I've already started and I'm actually really enjoying it, it's therapeutic to take an hour out of everything blogging related.
3) Start believing in myself
This is something I used to struggle with in school and uni, but I know my own self-confidence are starting to slip again. I'm really enjoying posting more fashion and lifestyle content, but I always have so many doubts about it. This autumn I'm going to try my best to scrap the negativity and remember that aslong as I'm posting things I love, that's all that matters.

4) Continue living a healthy lifestyle
I've been a little vague with this one because I feel like I could make a separate post on my health/ fitness goals, there's so much I want to do. My skin has been playing up a little the past few months and from what I've read and been told it could be down to diary. I'm hoping to cut it out of my diet completely, I hardly have any diary anyway - except chocolate - weeps... But yeah, it's gotta go. I've been a pescatarian for a few months now too, I'm not being strict with myself on this, if I want meat I'm going to have some, but so far I'm enjoying not having it.

I think I'm going to do a whole post on this because there's so much more to it, but overall I just want to continue feeling fit and healthy.

  1. i reaaaaaally need to start putting together monthly goals! it's sch a good idea to keep your mind focussed, it's just something i've never got round to yet.

    calligraphy is something i really wanted to get into as well, and i actually bought the same book as you! it's been sitting on my shelf gathering dust though as work has taken over my life...a reminder to get my act together and chill out a bit and do some pretty writing! ♥
