Lifestyle | A Few Daft Goals For 2018.

Last year I discussed how I don't really like the term 'New Years Resolution' - To me it just screams pressure! And that's not what I'm about! I'm the type of gal who likes bite size pieces, I'll break things down to make them much more achievable. I'm also the type of gal who writes a to do list, with things on that I've already completed, just because it gives me the extra boost to go ahead and grab my day by the balls!

With this in mind, I've got a few little goals that I'd like to achieve in 2018 which are as follows.
Reading.
I spoke earlier on in the year about taking time out for myself, practicing self care and basically chilling the eff out. For me one of the easiest and best ways to do this is by picking up a good book! I love reading thrillers and at the moment am reading Gillian Flynns' Sharp Objects. Her books are uncomfortable, you could even say twisted, but by golly, her stories are gripping! She's bloody brilliant!

Learn more recipes.
I'm terrible for cooking the same types of food, week in week out. I need some serious inspiration when it comes to meal prep. Jamie Olivers' 5 ingredients book has been on my to buy list for such a long time! I love how simple the concept it behind it, and I think it's something I could very much get on board with! If any of you have any cook book recommendations, feel free to throw them my way!

Moisturise.
Nobody likes winter when it comes to keeping your skin hydrated & I for one have definitely felt the cold over the last few months. I've gotten into a better routine when it comes to facial skincare, however when it comes to moisturising my body & applying a lip balm, I'm some what forgetful. I'm wanting to get into the routine of applying a lip balm every evening before I go to sleep as well as doing a full body butter sesh when I get out of the shower. Two daft little things I think will keep me feeling silky smooth throughout 2018.

Don't stress about the wedding.
We've been planning our wedding for over a year and a half now & throughout the whole process Dan and I have been very laid back about it all. However now we only have four months to go, it's all starting to feel real! It's obviously been 'just around the corner' for quite a while now, but now we're on the last stretch it's sunk in that we're actually getting married. Eeek! Here's hoping for a chilled four months!
Stay in touch.
And I don't mean over the internet. I'm talking meeting up with friends, going on days out with family, even just calling people on the phone. I think this kind of sits hand in hand with taking time out for myself, in the sense that I shouldn't forget about taking time out for other people, especially those I hold closest.

Brush my teeth.
Okay... So this isn't totally gross, more like mediocre gross. Ha! One thing I'm a devil for is crawling straight into bed on a night, getting all cosy and then not getting back out to brush my teeth. I've talked about this with various people, and it seems very 50/50, some people do and some people don't brush their nashers on a night time. This year I'm wanting to get in the routine of prioritising my teeth over my big warm cosy bed.

Insta story.
My snapchat account has absolutely died a death, gosh I can't even remember the username or password, but something I want to get more involved in is updating my Insta stories. I think regularly uploading on there is a great way to get to know the person behind the blog, I want you to see Claire, the gal who's actually quite boring, the one who loves her dog and spends way too much money on coffee. That's who I am.

So as daft and as silly as they are there's seven things I'd like to practice through 2018. Have you made any resolutions this year? What would you like to achieve?
