So January is well on its way and I have finally come up with my blogging goals for 2018! I have been keeping a little list of things that I might want to have as a goal for 2018 and I’ve now narrowed it down to 5! So without futher a do lets crack on!
The Mythical Views!
My first goal is a common one among bloggers and that is to gain more views, and generally more clicks to my blog. Currently my views are still very low and as I’m going into my last term at university I know I won’t be putting in as much time to my blog as I would like. For this reason my goal is still low but by the end of 2018 I hope to be recieving around 100 daily views to my blog! Lets see how that goes!
So finally have made it through to 2018! I hope you all had a fabulous New Year and are excited for what 2018 has in store! I’m both nervous and excited for my 2018 as it will see me graduating and stepping out into the wide world!
For now though I have my December Favourites to share with you, so here are some things I was loving in the month of December!
First thing I was loving was the British TV show Plebs which is currently on Netflix. I’d seen it advertised on tv a while ago but never watched and thought I would give it a go. Well as usual, I fell in love with it and binge watched it, some episodes multiple times!
If you don’t know it, I would likened it to the Inbetweeners but set in Ancient Rome! It stars Tom Rosenthal, Ryan Sampson and Noel Fry and it is hilarious! If you are a loose end with what to watch, give it a go!
A couple of days have passed since the big day and I truly hope you all had a magical time. However, as I said myself on Christmas day, it is also worth remembering that it is okay not to be okay. Just because it’s Christmas doesn’t mean we are expected to be bouncing off the walls constantly! It’s also a time for reflection, a time to remember and a time to give thanks for what we have, whatever that may be.
So recently I’ve been reflecting on certain habits, activities and such that I have been doing as a twenty-two-year-old woman. Some of them you probably wouldn’t associate with young, carefree woman! Not that I don’t secretly enjoy some of them!
What’s Normal Anyway?!
So in this post, I thought I would share with you some things I’ve been getting up to that perhaps your average 22-year-old might not be. I wanted to write this post to highlight that it’s okay to be yourself, and do what makes you happy! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
So in the words of Taylor Swift, I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22!
So today I thought I would share my personal tips on how to cope with those overwhelming or stressful days. We all have them, those days when we want to do anything but face the world. When we would much rather shut the door and be by ourselves than have to deal with, other people’s, as well as our own problems. However, we don’t always have that choice, whether it’s our job or we just have errands to run. As a retail worker, you can be shown the best and worst of people. Some people clearly just want an argument, whereas some as so easy and lovely!
Whatever the day has consisted of, when we come home we sometimes just want to take a little time to ourselves. For me this particularly comes with my anxiety, I need time by myself to recharge and just chill out. Therefore, I have rounded up some top tips as well as some favourite products that help me relax and recharge after a stressful day!
The Scent of Home
First of all, I love a good comforting scent. Whether that’s a scented candle, diffuser, incense or plug in air freshener, I just really like having a nice smelling room to come back to. It creates a calming atmosphere and if you use the same one a lot, you come to associate that scent with safety and home. If you do struggle with stress or anxiety try choosing relaxing, mentally restorative scents such as lemon, lavender or jasmine.
I am currently loving this reed diffuser by Dí Palomo, which is White Grape with Aloe. The combination of these two scents creates a lovely, soothing, fresh smell that really brightens a room. It’s a light scent which means it’s not overpowering or invasive, but still makes an impact on a room. They also do other products with both the same and different scents! So certainly check them out!
