January Goals

One of my favourite blog posts to read at the moment is monthly goals – I find it so interesting, having that little sneak peek into someone elses life, and also find that it really motivates me to get my A into G. There are so many plans that I have for 2018 and so I thought why not start publishing my monthly goals on the blog as well? And so, here we go, my January goals!

1. Get outside more: It’s full on summer over here and as much as I am more of a winter baby, I really want to try to embrace this season. Our pool is finally fixed and fabulous so my plan is to jump in with Dan and Aria as much as I can. I also really need to start making a point of taking the pooches for walks, Aria loves to ride her motorbike so it could be a really lovely afternoon outing.

2. Finish all of my re-branding: Hopefully you’ve noticed, but Mascara & Mimosas has had a teeny weeny facelift complete with a new logo. There’s a ton of documentation that goes hand in hand with the blog and so I want to get that all in order with the new branding and what not. There’s just something about a new year and a new month that makes me want to get ridiculously organised.

Okay so I only have two January goals but to be honest, I really just want to soak up family time as much as I can while Dan is on leave so I think keeping it short and sweet this month is the key to making my goals attainable.

I’ll be posting my monthly goals on or around the first of each month so make sure to keep an eye on my socials (click on the icons on the top bar) to see when a new one has gone live. What are your goals for January and please let me know in the comments if you enjoy this sort of post?

  1. Get out more! YES! I have this as a general goal for the year ahead.
    I am also doing monthly goals this year – I NEED to be more intentional about life.

    • I also really want to be more intentional – feel like doing monthly goals on the blog will keep me more accountable.

  2. I didn’t include rebranding in my post I completely agree! I feel like a little face lift goes a long way 🙂

    I wish you all the best for the year ahead! 🙂

    • Thanks Veronica, and to you, may 2018 be your best year yet!

  3. Happy New Year. I agree with you on getting out more , thank you for the reminder.

    • It does such wonders for the soul!

  4. YAY!! Monthly goals are some of my best posts too – and a great way to stay accountable.
    Love your two goals this month – and gorgeous new look and logo 🙂
