16 In 16 Revisited Goals Goals Goals

Hey Cats,

Have you missed me? If you have been keeping up with me on snapchat then you will know there have been lots of changes recently so what better way to talk about them and see where we are headed then to revisit the goals set at the beginning of the year in 16 in 16!

1. Travel More

Money has been tight and time has been limited so this one I haven't got to do so much unless you count going to and from Birmingham recently ha ha. We do however have a little birthday trip planned for Mr K to the one and only Blackpool! I haven't been since I was a little kid and am looking forward to a weekend of cheesy fun and even a horror bar! Travel doesn't always have to be about going abroad explore your area and the UK too!

2. Move

So excited to have finally moved out of a flat in Birmingham into a house in Darley Dale just down the road from Matlock. We have swapped busy city life for the countryside. Instead of a little one bed flat we have a lovely 3 bed cottage with most exciting of all a garden! I have missed having a garden and having so much space in the house is so strange. We only moved a week ago but it already feels like home I just wish the boxes would magically unpack themselves! 

3. New Job

With moving comes new opportunities and on snapchat I have been talking about my interviews and showing what I have been wearing to them. I had an interview for a dental receptionist job which I didn't get but I did bag an assistant manager job at a local charity shop so I get to combine two awesome things charity and shopping! Plus they loved the fact I was a blogger and I get to be myself and just relax. I haven't started just yet but am looking forward to a new challenge!

OOTD what I wore to the interview

4. Yoga

Hangs head in shame! Other than moving lots of boxes and putting things in scary attics I haven't really had the chance to do a lot of exercise but since I have a lot more space now I will be putting some focus on health and well being and yoga will be a great way to do this! I may even attempt riding a bike and if you know me then you know how strange that is as I have no balance at all. 

5. Write

Other than blogging I really haven't had the time which is a weak excuse I know but I still have 6 months to catch up and get some writing flowing. Blogging is a form of writing though and I often try and ensure I deliver you lovely readers varied content please do let me know what are your favourite posts to read.

6. Push myself out of my fashion comfort zone

I am still super interested in trying new styles and now I will have more money coming in that is totally something that I can achieve by the end of the year I may even see if anyone wants to join me for a style challenge! 

7.  Reach more people with the blog

I always feel blessed when people read and comment on the blog and I do think I have reached more people in the last 6 months. *waves* thank you to everyone old or new I appreciate you all. 

Bloglovin- 500 - currently at 404
Facebook- 700 - almost at 500
Twitter -    5000 - 2964 getting there!!
Instagram- 5000-1451 think I may be a bit too ambitious for this one 

Big goals maybe but you can help me get there by just giving me a follow!

8. Read 40 books in 2016

Always addicted to reading and even with the move I have still managed to have two books on the go. I am currently reading Crab moon a trashy horror book and Dorothy must die a tale of oz gone wrong! When I finish both these books I will be at 11 so far but I still have faith I can read 40 by the end of the year! Especially after unpacking all the books in the move I found so many I have been meaning to read and now is the perfect chance. You can also find me on goodreads.

9. Build Bridges and Heal

Although this is really an ongoing goal the thoughts I had in mind at the start of the year I have put behind me and am moving forward. Sadly sometimes that means knowing when a friendship has come to an end and heart breaking as it is you need to forgive and move on. I am in a good place and feel happier every day so this is something I will keep to. 

10. Experiment With Make up

I have been quietly experimenting with highlighters and contours but haven't mastered them just yet but this one I can't tick off this goal just yet because I still seems to be rocking the same make up in my make up bag day to day. I am going to get in the habit of rotating and trying new looks. I am so stoked that Kat Von D's range is going to be coming to the UK as well other than that , Any suggestions?

11. Get Driving

I went for an eye test so I am a step closer to the goal as I had some eye issues that were getting in the way. Driving is even more important now I am living in the country because wow country buses are crazy expensive! I am so on this goal.

12. Make A Short Film

I have the space and the ability just not the time right now but I am putting together ideas and the preparation is one of the most important things about making a film. People do not give the planning stages enough credit because without them there would be no film.

13. Do More Crafts

I have been working behind the scenes doing lots of little fun things that make me happy and I am slowly working my way through all those pinterest boards I put together for inspiration and trying new fun things. I am really enjoying making home made beauty and up cycling items that are awesome but just need a new lease of life.

14. Spend More Time With The Ones I Love

This is another ongoing goal and I have been spending lots of time with family especially as my dad has been very poorly and in hospital family are so important to me. I haven't seen nearly enough of some of my dear friends though so am hoping to catch up with them soon!

15. Small Acts Of Kindness

I am a big believer in making everyone feel special. You really do not know what is going on in someones life and how a little warmth from you can really make a difference. This is something I try and do all the time from dropping a random compliment to someone to paying for a strangers coffee. What have you done lately to be kind?

16. Give Less Fucks

I am all over this I am worrying less about what other people think like if my blog is good enough or if I am following the latest trends and instead focusing on the ones closest to me who really matter. Not to say I don't appreciate you all!

Did you set yourself any goals this year and how are they going?
