It has been so long since I last posted on my blog and I have missed writing so much. Its strange how much blogging has become a part of my life. I have this outlet for my creativity, so when I am not posting, I almost feel restless.
I thought as my first post in a while I would reflect on these past few months and goals I have for the rest of 2018. I cannot believe how fast this year is going already and we are nearly at the end of May.
I turned 27 this year and I had a wonderful birthday. I spent it with my family and my close friends. I was very fortunate to receive so much love on my birthday and some thoughtful gifts.
Working with brands
This year so far I have been very fortunate to work with two amazing brands. I was gifted 2 cute phone cases from Cover My Bits and a range of beautiful stationery products from Say Nice Things. I was lucky enough to meet Andy from the brand in person and we were able to talk all things stationery. Both brands were a pleasure to work with.
In the first part of 2018 alone I have made new friends within this blogging community, so many people are supportive and there for advice and useful tips. I have also become great friends with others at work which makes work so much more enjoyable. I have also reconnected with old friends. It is so important to me that I surround myself with people who are a positive influence and who bring light. I have realised over the years, its okay if you don’t want to continue with a toxic friendship. Life is way too short to waste time with the wrong people.
My weight loss journey
This year I joined slimming world and I have been finding it okay. Obviously I have down days where I want to eat whatever. However, so far I have lost 1 stone and 6lbs and I am so proud of myself. I am hoping to be at my goal weight by the end of this year. If you are looking to change your lifestyle I would recommend joining slimming world.
I have also hit 6K on my twitter, which is amazing and so grateful to everyone who follows me over there.
My goals for the rest of 2018
- Reach 6.5K on twitter
- I want to reach 1.2K followers on my blog
- I want to work with another stationery brand
- I would like to also build my Instagram
I have a couple of events coming up in the next few months. I have another STEPS concert as well as BLUE and AQUA supporting them. I also have Bournemouth Pride, so I will be sure to write about those.
What has made you happy so far in 2018 and what are your goals for the rest of the year?
