Recap of my 2018 goals & my new 2019 goals
Towards the beginning of 2018 I did 2 blogposts on my blogging goals and makeup goals for the year. I've also decided to share a mix of my 2019 goals too. I love setting goals and I do it quite often at the beginning of the year, months, weeks and days. Just having goals to work on is something I enjoy trying to achieve.
We'll start with the makeup goals as that was the first of the two I posted. To be honest, I didn't wear makeup that much in 2018, but I did play around with it more when I did, so this will be interesting.
Stop buying eyeshadow: this one failed. It was going well until around June when I bought an eyeshadow palette and then again in October time. 2 palettes in one year isn't that much though, right? I came to realise this goal was a bit unrealistic as I love eyeshadows too much to stop buying them. On the good side though, I did avoid buying palettes that have the same shades as all my other ones, so thats a good thing.
Use my Makeup Revolution Ultimate palette more: during 2018, I used the same 3 palettes and unfortunately I didn't use the Revolution Ultimate palette that often.
Every year I set myself some new blogging goals and I think I did pretty well with them.
Do more flat lays: this one didn't go to plan too much, however I have some flat lay photos planned for this year. I used to love doing flat lay photos and I don't know why I don't do it much anymore.
I have a lot of goals this year, however I won't be sharing all of them otherwise this post will be so long.
Save £100 a month: this is something I started to do towards the end of 2018 and then I ended up spending it on multiple guinea pig vet visits in a month, which I'm fine with and is part of the reason why I'm saving £100 a month (for emergencies).
Upload frequently on my blog, YouTube and Instagram: this is my goal every year, especially for YouTube and Instagram. I think I upload more on my blog than anything else.
Go to/get tickets for a concert: concerts are my absolutely favourite and in 2018 I went to a Maluma concert and was supposed to see Daddy Yankee (but he cancelled his only UK show for some reason). This year I'd like to go to another concert or get tickets to a concert (whether it be for this year or next). I love having concerts to look forward to.
Get another pet: I love pets and I'm such an animal person. I currently have 3 guinea pigs and a budgie. I'd love a bunny or some mice (both of which I've had before). In the 18/19 years I've had pets, I've had a lot of different ones, so I'd quite like to get one I've never had before as well. A pet I'd love is a chinchilla but I need to do more research on those.
Get a tattoo: when I was younger I was more into piercings than tattoos and ended up with 12 piercings by the time I was 17. I never used to see myself getting a tattoo, however now I'm really into wanting tattoos. I want a small tattoo related to my family.
Get my life together: my life has been pretty much on hold due to my illness that I've never spoken about anywhere else online before. Its created a negative impact on my life and this year I want to get my life together and actually enjoy life. I want to focus on my mental health and do things that make me happier. I don't like opening up as I'm quite a private person, so I'm not sure I'll write a post on this just yet, but maybe this year.
Learn more Portuguese and Italian: I've been learning Spanish for a couple of years and towards the end of last year I started learning a bit of Portuguese and Italian. I love learning new languages and I'd love to continue learning more.
Try/buy more Playstation games: this is a goal that I think my brother is really happy about as he's quite the gamer. Back in August, my brother bought me a playstation so we could play games together and up until about a week ago, I only played GTA5. I've been playing different GTA's for so many years and then started playing GTA5 when it came out (its my favourite one). This goal is already off to a good start as I've now bought Minecraft and Need For Speed and got Steep from the free games on PS Now. Previously on my brothers playstation, we played all sorts of games like NBA, FIFA, Lego Games, COD and quite a few more. I still want to get a bunch more games I've never played before.
Be more positive: this kind of links in with the 'get my life together' goal. I'm very rarely a positive person. Every now and then I'll have this little burst of positivity and then I'll drop right back down again. My aim is to focus on becoming a positive person.
Those are my 2018 recaps and my 2019 goals. I can't wait to look back on these at the end of 2019 and see how many I've achieved. What are some of your goals for this year?
