Five Goals To Complete Before 2016

As Autumn is now well and truly upon us as we enter into the last quarter of the year, I thought it would be nice to set myself some goals as an extra boost of motivation before the year is over. I did actually set myself some new year's resolutions way back in January which you can check out here if you wish - I've surprisingly completed quite a couple of them!

Pondering over my goals with a much needed Starbucks!

1. Hit 500 followers on Bloglovin
My blog has grown so much recently since hitting its first birthday in July and I'm honestly so grateful for that. I'm currently making my way towards 400 followers on bloglovin' so it would be so unreal if I was able to reach 500 before the end of the year. If we actually manage it there will definitely be a cheeky 500 follower giveaway as my way of saying thank you so - watch this space!

2. Feel more settled within university
If you're a regular reader of mine then you'll probably already know I've just began my first year at university. I am still living at home however, it just felt like the best decision for me and I have no regrets with that at all but I would like to think by the end of the year I'll have made a few more friends and I'll hopefully have created some amazing memories to look back on next year.

3. To improve my blog photography
As someone who studied photography at A-Level for the past two years, I'm always looking for ways to improve my blog photography and if you look back to my older posts then it's honestly amazing how far I have finally come. I'm really hoping to invest in a new camera for christmas this year, I've had mine for the past three years and I'm just excited to finally make some much needed improvements. 
I currently use the Nikon Coolpix L810 incase you were curious - I'd definitely recommend this to beginners but for me this investment shall hopefully be worth it, photography is something I want to be able to do alongside my journey into becoming a fashion journalist. If you have any camera recommendations then do please them in the comments below! 

4. To release my first product
This isn't something I've mentioned on my blog yet but I'm currently working alongside upcoming hair and accessory company Prairie Charms to create my own hand chain ahh! As we move into October I'm going to be beginning the design process which is super exciting, I honestly cannot wait to share the final result with you guys. I'm not too sure on exactly how long the process may be at this point but it would be so cool to have my own product released just as we move into the new year.

5. Get involved with more activities
If you didn't already know, October to December is my favourite time of the year. There's just so many more events and celebrations to attend and I really want to start getting involved with more seasonal activities this year. I know that fashion and beauty is my main discussion area within blogging but I'd love to add a few more lifestyle posts to my blog and take you guys along with me on different events throughout this latter half of the year. I've also never attended any blogging events so it would be amazing to finally tick this off of my list by the end of the year.


So I hope you enjoyed this post lovelies, it's always nice to boost ourselves with a touch of motivation during this latter half of the year. Also, if you do have any camera recommendations then do be sure to leave any suggestions in the comments below. Until next time,



What goals would you like to achieve before the new year?!
