I know we’re a few days off March yet, but I’ve already spotted some blossom and it officially feels like spring – I mean, I’m not wearing a coat in some of these photos *wild. I’ve decided to get back into sharing monthly goals on here, I never put any pressure on myself to make them big, but I love thinking about the little things I want to focus on, and actually start celebrating and documenting the little wins.
First of all, I feel like I blinked and February came and went, but the stand out thing for me this month was definitely shooting with Ami Ford. It was a massive step out of my comfort zone, and it was just lovely to meet up with another creative! In terms of the bigger picture it definitely got me thinking more about my self-belief and confidence too (which I’m gunna touch on in a mo), I’m excited to continue shooting outfits and experimenting more with different styles of photography as we move into spring and summer. Also, I got to work with Ted Baker on the launch of their new scent which I’m super proud of, I really love the scent and it’s been my go to pretty much everyday, it’s a citrus/ floral scent and just seems to match this time of year perfectly.
A slight downer on the month that actually happened last night, I managed to dislocate my shoulder at a body pump class! I dislocated it about 7 years ago so I was always more likely to have it happen again, but, it’s just really bloody inconvenient. I’ve spent the day resting with my arm in a sling and I just hope it heals well, I have another appointment next week and I just don’t want to swell on it too much. I spent 5 hours in a&e and there were parents with children, elderly people, a man with his head split open and a couple of other sights that made me thankful my situation was bearable! Let’s just say I aint doing a side plank any time soon…

Work on my self-belief
It’s not going to be something that happens over night, it’s probably going to be a work in progress for a longggg time, but this past week and since shooting with Ami I’ve really realised how low my self-belief is. It’s mostly related to my blog to be completely honest, I feel like there’s quite a lot to unpack and figure out before I speak about it properly, but it’s something I’m going to make sure I see improvements on this month. A couple of things that have helped so far is Headspace (I’ve been doing mini mindfulness practices every morning) and Sas Petherick’s podcast. This is something I will definitely be touching on more in the future in the hope to help anyone else that’s experiencing low self-esteem too!
Improve my blog
Since updating my design I feel like my blog has well and truly become my baby again. I’m posting more than I have in months and I’ve been really enjoying it. There’s definitely a few things I want to update and I’ve got a lottt of SEO related work to do, but I really I want to build it back up and create a space where it’s easy for people to navigate, feel inspired and find what they’re looking for.
Look into freelancing
Outside of blogging I work full time as a social media and PR manager, I love it and I’ve been thinking more and more about working for myself and finding clients outside of what I do 9-5. Again it ties back to self-belief, I feel like I need to work on that before I push forward with it fully, but it’s definitely something I’m considering and the idea of it excites me ( terrifies me also, but mostly exciting).
Live in the moment
I’ve got quite a few fun things planned in March, I’ve got a boozy brunch in London for one a close friends birthday (if the last boozy brunch I went to is anything to go off then it’s going to be hilarious). I’m staying in Sheffield for the night, I’ve got a weekend at home in North Wales, and my family are coming to visit at the end of the month. I really want to enjoy these moments and soak it all up while it lasts, especially with February being so quiet!
So they’re the things I’m working towards in March, I feel like they’re pretty reasonable goals to reach. I was going to say continue going to gym classes, but that’s definitely out of the picture for a month or two while my shoulder recovers!
Do you have any goals you’re working towards in March?
