How is it March already? I know most of us say that every month but genuinely, February has flown by for me! I've been so crazy busy with work that all I've done on a night is binge-watch TV and sleep!

March is set to be the month where I make things happen. I'm feeling super motivated so I'm ready to get fit, pass my final journalism exam and work on my blog when I get a chance to!


First, it's time to review my February goals. I'm not going to lie, I'm not incredibly optimistic in achieving these but let's take a look anyway!

1. Write 5 posts a week. MASSIVE FAIL. Life happened and posting went down the pan! I'm now sticking to three posts a week!
2. Create a workout schedule around work and blogging. I'm doing that currently! As soon as I get my work shifts, I organise my week around them!
3. No spend February on beauty, toiletries and clothing! Oops. I didn't spend as much as I usually do which is a bonus but then my local Boots got a NYX counter and then there was no looking back!
4. Less takeaway hot drinks/lunches! Something I succeeded at! I've been treating myself to just 1 or 2 takeaway hot drinks a week rather than one a day! I've been preparing lunches at home too which is saving me tonnes of money!
5. Be more active on Twitter chats. Next.
6. Reach 3,000 Twitter followers. I finally did it! Hooray!
7. Read 4 books. I haven't even read one, oh dear.
8. Keep tidying/de-cluttering. Still a work in progress but I'm trying to do it steadily!


So I completed 2 and a bit goals: well done me! This month, I'm even more determined after failing so badly! Here's a look at my March goals: 

1. Stick to my revision plan. I have to resit a media law exam mid-April so I need to get a move on; third time lucky so I need to pass it!

2. Keep track of my workouts, meals and steps. I've got a fitness diary where I plan everything in advance and then a seperate one to track what I actually do! So far, so good!

3. Save, save, save. I have two big spends this month: my law exam and a Fitbit. Those have been paid for so now I need to stop with the spending! I do have a load of Boots vouchers that run out mid-month though!

4. Research cruelty-free beauty more. Having seen the sheer amount of brands that test on animals, I've come to the conclusion that I will only buy cruelty-free from now on. I have a tonne of products that aren't to use up asap but I want to find more brands!


5. Read 4 books. After last month's epic fail, I need to step up my game! I've got three books that I need to finish first!

6. Stick to my brand new workout plan. Day 3 today and I'm glad I'm sticking to it so far! I'm given myself a tonne of workouts to do daily but as long as I stick to a couple a day, I'll be happy!

7. Drink 2 litres of water a day. I've found that lately, I've been getting headaches frequently again and I think it's a mixture of things. Keeping hydrated is one step in the right direction!

8. Go to the gym 3 times a week. This fits in with my workout plan as cardio is on the agenda most days! 

What are your March goals? Leave me a comment below!


  1. Loved this post! I just started doing goal related monthly posts on my blog as well! My march goals are mainly to stay consistent with the gym & to grow my blog! Network & hopefully hit an all time high for my views!

  2. Really needed to read something like this today. Especially coming into the new month, I need to make sure I keep making positive changes.
    I hope you manage to achieve all the things you set out to do this month. I also absolutely love this calendar and would love to know where you got it from!


  3. Loved this xx
    One of my goals is definitley to work on my blog & scheduling more (Also your little calendar is soso cute!)

  4. Love the monthly reviews and set goals, will definitely try and adopt this!!
    I've also been looking into cruelty-free products and companies, I'm sure you've been made aware of parent companies not being cruelty-free but the smaller ones they 'run' are! It's very convenient to not buy cruelty-free and I think that puts me off a little bit... which I know is not good because think of the animals!


  5. Love that you're trying to go cruelty free babe, it's something I feel very passionate about so if you want to talk about it more or have any questions please feel free to get in touch with me. Good luck with your goals! πŸŒΈπŸ’—✨

  6. Great goals, love the honesty with Feb goals lol!! I am on a no make up spending ban for March.... Its day one and I have the shakes haha. xxxxx


  7. These are really good goals! I want to come up with an exercise routine and stick with it. I'm trying to avoid Boots as there's a few bits I want to pick up but don't actually need! Let's see how that goes!

  8. Monthly goals are so important, and much more achievable in my eyes. This month I want to start driving lesson, and try and loose a bit more weight! x


  9. Such great goals, I love setting goals every moths xxxx

  10. Congratulations on achieving the "buying less hot drinks when out" goal - it's definitely a bit money saver and the drinks that you do buy are then so much nicer because they're a treat! Shopping cruelty free with greater regularity is such an important goal to have too, if you need any CF recommendations, hit me up! Great post!

  11. I think I need to start doing something like this even if I don't post it just to motivate myself! Great post babe xx

  12. I love these posts. Well done on reaching 3000 followers on Twitter. I have started taking my lunch to work too. It really does save money and helps me to feel healthier.

  13. I'm trying to go cruelty free too and really need to do more research - it's confusing because some companies don't test on animals but the companies that own them do so I really need to look into it and make a big list of brands! I've got loads to use up though too!

  14. Congrats on the 3000 followerss!! I need to start reading more books as well, I am the worst!!
    Good luck in your new goals, can't wait to see if you achieve them! xox

  15. I love how honest these are, so many bloggers would just say they'd completed all their goals you know? I'm really into reading Thrillers at the moment, and after reading your last 'Goals' post I've definitely cut down on my Starbucks lattes ����

  16. Congrats on reaching 3000 followers! I'm hoping to starting working out this month, I need to go join a gym and then start going before/after work! I'm just so lazy atm. I'm also giving myself a goal this month (and next) to save more. I've been so bad at spending money lately, and I'm broke! Good luck with all of your goals
