Monday, 1 February 2016


Can you actually believe we're 1 month into 2016 already? I mean does anyone else feel as if they haven't done anything they set out to do?

At the beginning of last month, I set a few goals which weren't specifically for January but it would have been good to start them at least!
  • The 52 Week Money Saving Challenge - I don't have any savings, like at all and I know so many people have got huge savings. I've been doing a weekly saving challenge and so far I've saved £15 but it eventually adds up to £1378. I've recently found one that you save in increments of pennies, so day 1- 1p, day 10 - 10p and day 156 - £1.56, this only saves £671.61 but this will mean I can buy some amazing birthday presents for my mums 50th, sisters 21st and my dads birthday 10 days later. It's also so much more achievable! So next January, I'll have the best part of £2000 I can use as back up for things like my car!
  • 30x30 Exercise Challenge - This completely failed. However, last night I dug out my TV so I can do Charlotte Crosby's Belly Blitz workout DVD and others that I have!
  • Keeping 4 Diaries - I honestly can say this has not been easy, it takes so long to sit down everyday and write them all!
This Month:
  • I want to check off a few more things from my 101 in 1001 days challenge, this ends next year and I really haven't done much!
  • 30x30 challenge - As I said I've gotten my TV out and my Apple watch keeps an eye on how many minutes of exercise I do, so it's completely achievable, I just have to keep at it.
  • I want to post on here at least every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I do this most weeks but I want to stick at the schedule, if not add in a few extra.
You may also have noticed my new blog layout..I thought it was about time to invest in something I can keep, and I'm in love!

I'm also now now on Facebook, be sure to check it out here and give it an ol' like!

Have you kept your New Years Resolutions or failed like I have?



  1. I love how you've had to 'dig out' your TV ha! Is it hiding in a drawer or something?! I'd love to start a savings challenge but I feel like I'm a bit behind with this. Perhaps I can start now! Love your new layout by the way. x

  2. Fab post lovely, I really need to try the saving challenge as I’m the same as you I just have no savings whatsoever haha. Where is your tv if you’ve had to dig it out? Haha

  3. The money-saving plans sound like an excellent idea! But writing four diaries every day, goodness me, that must be time consuming.
