Hi pumpkins, November is finally here and with it comes a new to do list and set of little goals that I’d like to accomplish for the new month. Since December is SUCH a busy month for me (and i’m sure all of you) November needs to be the month that I get shit done, so let’s just get into it!
Finish Christmas shopping!
The first thing that MUST be ticked off my to-do list this month is to finish all of my Christmas gift shopping! December is so fully booked out this year and I literally have at least one big event on every single weekend, plus full time work during the week so to make life a little easier and less stressful for me I really want to get this all finished well before then. Luckily for me I took advantage of the early Christmas shop displays back in the start of October (you know when the shops put up their Christmas stuff way too early but everyone is too busy shopping for Halloween? Yeah, back then) meaning I totally skipped out on the busy Christmas chaos at the shopping centre’s and I managed to snag all the good little gifts before they were sold out. So all that’s left to find now are gifts for my mum and my man’s parents!
Start wearing makeup more often
Pretty self explanatory. My makeup and hair routine has been majorly minimal for the past few months, if I even do anything in the first place so this month I want to change that. I am going to make a conscious effort to play with my makeup at least 4 times a weekend to style my hair every day!
Up my Instagram & Twitter content.
So if you follow me on twitter (if not follow me here haha) you will have noticed that I have been way more active on it lately, and frankly i’m so happy I jumped back into it because it’s become my most loved social media platform yet! I love how easy it is to connect with people from all over the world along with my favourite bloggers and celebrities! So my goal this month is to become way more active on it and post more tweets as opposed to commenting and retweeting others. That’s also the same with my instagram account – I know my feed has been suffering a lot lately and I haven’t been producing regular content and I really want to start getting into the swing of things, I just don’t understand how all of these guys and girls are able to post bomb selfies and pictures every single day! I literally struggle to get a new picture of me to put up monthly lol.
Disconnect & separate myself from my phone more often
I totally get that this kind of contradicts my goal of being more active on instagram and twitter but lately I have been really noticing just how often I pick up my iphone and how much my life is beginning to revolve around it. I mean without my phone I don’t even know what I would do!? On the daily I will check all of my banking accounts, read the local, national and international news, read and respond to emails, check instagram, twitter, catch up on some blog posts and not to mention the ridiculous amount of time I spend on messenger chatting to my friends, so I want to start removing myself from it for a few hours each day at a minimum because i’m so scared that i’m missing out on a whole world and half of my life looking at a little screen. I’m actually really looking forward to setting this goal into action and making it a lifestyle change.
Following on from my goal of separating myself from my phone I want to get back into some old hobbies that I used to love that don’t involve technology – one of those being watercolour painting! Strolling around in Typo yesterday I saw a pack of watercolour pencils and immediately remembered how much fun I had doodling and painting, so naturally I purchased the biggest pack of pencils they had haha! Watercolour pencils aren’t my absolute favourite so I will go and buy some actual watercolour paint soon but for the mean time I just completely forgot how much I loved painting and can’t wait to get back into it!
Until next time,
Love, Angela xx.
