Four Simple Goals Before 2014

After reading this post by A Beautiful Mess I thought it would be a  good idea to try and finish 2013 on a high, and perhaps train myself in preparation for the compulsory New Year’s revolutions. All of the rules are on the Beautiful Mess blog, but basically pick action orientated goals rather than target orientated goals. For example, instead of “I will lose 20 pounds”, pick a goal like “I will make healthier food choices.”

4 goals before 2014

I found it a lot harder to think of these than I thought it would be! But I did think of them in the end. These are my goals for the final two months of the year:

1. Be more motivated. I always have a lot of plans and ideas, but most of the time I never do them, so I need to improve my motivation to get things done. This also applies to things like uni work, exercise, hobbies etc.

2. Be more organised. This kinda fits into the motivation goal. If I’m more organised, I’m more likely to get things done!

3. Improve my cooking/baking skills. I’ve always wanted to be able to cook and bake fabulous things, and at the moment it’s 50/50 between fabulous and ‘ewwy’

4. Improve my photography skills. I love my DLSR, but I still don’t understand what all the buttons do!

What goals do you have for the next few months?


Hello World!

I’m Elanor, a student from England who, after a long blogging hiatus, is returning to my blog to document some parts of my life.

I’m a fashion enthusiast and I love all types of fashion from haute couture to vintage and everything in between. Aside from fashion I love reading, photography, food (especially food), fitness and art.

I hope to one day travel the world, bake the perfect cinnamon swirl, eat lots of burgers and find a pair of jeans with pockets large enough to fit essentials in (I think it’s a marketing ploy so women have to buy bags).
