So October for me is the beginning of Autumn, it's when I start to drink hot drinks more and wear fluffy socks. If you know me I love season changes especially spring and autumn, when spring starts I am adamant it's my favourite season and same goes for autumn. What can I say..I'm an indecisive person!
I have seen quite a few bloggers post their October goals and it got me thinking 'what goals do I have? What do I want to achieve'. Although my goals aren't life changing I thought I would share them as other peoples posts left me feeling inspired.
1. Buy Some Warm Scented Candles
I bloody well love warm/sweet speed candles, any cake or vanilla scened candle I want and need, I always have wax burners burning in my house as I love my house smelling nice but I especially like burning candles in the colder months, theres just something so nostalgic about burning warm candles in the autumn.
2. Try To Be More Consistent On Social Media
I started my new job in September so I have been getting back into the routine of having a job which means I have been awful at keeping up to date with my Twitter, Blog and Instagram. I just want to use October to get ac into the swing of things and find a balance between being a blogger and working.
3.Plan Future Blogposts
Similar to the last goal, I want to start to plan my blogposts again because if I'm honest I've been slacking. I find no only do my blogposts turn out 10 times better if I have planned them but I also find it easier to stick to my blogging schedule as I know what needs to go up and when. Ideally I would like to plan blogposts up until the new year.
4. Start Saving For Christmas
Okay, It's no secret but I friggin love Christmas it is literally my favourite time of year! Now I only have a part-time job so I don't earn a huge amount of money so if I want to buy people some nice presents I need to get saving like now! Saving for me is really hard as I love spending money so hopefully I a successful (wish me luck!).
5. Lose Half A Stone
I have been trying to lose weight for like 2 years now and I well and truly suck at it, I just love chocolate too much! Since being with Scott (3 years) I have put on a lot of weight which not only makes me unhealthy it also has made me feel unhappy so I want to set myself some goals on how much to lose each month to help me on my way.
6. Read More Books
I love reading, so much so I have a goal for this year to read 50 books so far I have read 38 which isn't bad going! However I haven't been reading as much as I would like really I think I am currently reading 5 books! So my goal this month is to finish all the books I am currently reading to help me on my way to completing this years reading goal.
Wish me luck with all of my October goals, some are more achievable than others but I hope to complete them all. I will be posting a follow up post at the end of this month to keep an eye out!
