Looking Ahead; 2017 Goals, Hopes and Dreams

31st December 2016

Every January I love to make a list of exciting resolutions and challenges for myself, for the coming year. I find that this motivates me and gives me a chance to really reflect on the year gone by, and I totally recommend it!

This year I’ve listed my 2017 goals, and thought I’d share them with you guys. Basically they’re my hopes, resolutions, and things I’d like to achieve in my life, my work, and with my blog.

Blog/Social Media:

1. Reach 4000 Bloglovin followers

5. Collaborate with some exciting brands.



1. Reach 1000 Etsy sales (please visit my shop!)

2. Start producing more products (notebooks, bookmarks, pins, mugs, beanies)

3. Get new business cards.

4. Complete the secret project I’m working on and hopefully see it be a success!

5. Get into a healthier/happier work routine.



1. Live healthier.

2. Look after myself in little ways (sleep better, regular time off)

3. Book a trip for Gary and I.

4. Settle into our new home & start wedding planning.

5. Be adventurous.



1. Really make an effort with Youtube.

2. Keep up our Podcast.

I do hope I can achieve all my 2017 goals, or at least most of them! I’m particularly keen to make my new project a success, live healthier and settle into our new home nicely! I think this will improve the three most important aspects of my life; work, my mind/body and my lovely relationship with my fiance in our new house. Please keep your fingers crossed guys, and wish me luck!


What are your hopes for 2017?

Happy new year!
