2017 Goals + Wants
Image from Pinterest
Happy new year everyone! I can't believe how fast 2016 has gone by although considering how awful this year was for the world in general, that's probably a good thing! I had an alright year, here are a few of my highlights: I read 79 books this year (even though my goal was only 30), I passed my driving test and received my license a couple of days ago (I still can't believe that I've passed) and I worked with the famous store Harrods!

I don't usually set massive goals or a lot of them as I don't want to be disappointed if I don't reach them but this year I'm setting myself quite a few random and small goals for various aspects of my life such as lifestyle changes, reading goals, driving goals and blog aims of 2017.

Lifestyle Goals

  • Take part in Veganuary (being vegan throughout January)
  • Lose weight & start a consistent exercise routine/schedule 
  • Save more, spend less (there's a lot to pay for in 2017)
  • Continue learning Italian (I have the Rosetta Stone 1-3 level set)
  • Start a photography course (?)
  • Start more mini online courses via Future Learn

Reading Goals 
  • Read at least 80 books in 2017
  • Read more classics & non-fiction 
  • Document my book reviews and opinions better 

Driving Goals 
  • Take more journeys on my own 
  • Practice parallel parking and reversing into a space 
  • Take the Pass Plus driving course (?)

Blog Goals 
  • Reach 6,000 followers on Twitter
  • Up my Instagram and Pinterest game
  • Continue to improve my blog photography and content 

Miscellaneous & Wants 
  • Get laser eye surgery
  • Minimalise my wardrobe, makeup, dvds etc
  • New tattoo (?)
  • Go to more blog events 

What are your goals, however big or small, for 2017?

  4. Congratulations on passing your driving test! :D and I definitely recommend taking your pass plus! It gave me just a little bit more confidence! :) (although I could in my instructors car I can't reverse into a space anymore xD) I hope you manage to achieve all your goals this year! X

  9. I love your goals & I love that you have some extra driving goals! I´m also totally trying to minimalise my wardrobe and makeup collection by using up as much as possible. Also I really want to buy more ethically!

    I also want another tattoo, though not sure hubby would be too happy! LOL

  13. I love the variety of your goals! Hmm, I've been telling myself I need to learn how to drive and get licensed for the longest time. I think I will focus on making that a reality this year! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
