Goals & Motivation

September 2017 – Goals & Wishlist


Here we are again with another monthly goals & Wishlist post!

In this post I will be following on from Augusts goals and reviewing them; only the social ones as I feel that many of the personal goals take longer than one month to achieve!

Of course there is another monthly Wishlist at the end because, well, who doesn’t love shopping??


I only started this blog in August so I know I haven’t hit all of my goals – slightly disheartening but I am still getting used to things and how to do them effectively. Promoting my blog and new posts is something I am struggling with so if you have any helpful tips and tricks for how to do this please do leave them in the comments below!

  • Blog Views:
    August goal: average 50/day & 100/post —> achieved: average 30/day & 75/post

I didn’t quite hit my goal – to achieve my September goal I need to promote my posts & blog in general more frequently!

  • Bloglovin follows:
    August goal: 50 —> achieved 70/24 (it was only last week that I realised that you can connect your blog to bloglovin – meaning that my actual blog has only been on bloglovin for about a week and my personal bloglovin has all the followers and not my actual blog – I still don’t really understand how bloglovin works really…)
  • Twitter follows:
    August goal: 500 —> achieved: 510
    I’m so happy I hit this goal as I was more active on twitter than I have ever been in order to achieve this and I’ve discovered so many lovely blogs (with equally lovely people running them) from doing this and I cant wait to discover more!
  • Instagram follows:
    August goal: 500 —> achieved: 471
    Need I say anything about Instagram and the troubles everyone is having.
    Follow me one day and unfollow the next … I swear its getting impossible to grow on instagram?? Any help please??
  • Pinterest follows:
    August goal: 50 —> achieved 2
    I honestly don’t have a clue on how to use Pinterest to increase my traffic / promote my blog —> I’ve read so many posts about how to do it but I just don’t get it at all!!


  • I start uni this month so I’m not sure how much time I’m going to have to work on my blog and promoting it! I definitely need to plan and schedule more to help achieve any of these!

If any of you want to help me achieve my September 2017 goals all of the links to the respective areas will be below and it will e greatly appreciated!


  • Blog views:

Current: average 30/day & 75/post —> goal 50/day & 100/post

  • Bloglovin follows:
    (For my blog page now that it is there)
    Current: 24 —> goal 50


  • Twitter follows:
    Current: 510 —> goal 600


  • Instagram follows:
    Current: 471 —> goal 520


  • Pinterest follows:
    Current: 2 —> goal 50
    I’m really going to work on Pinterest this month!



Although it is nice to see my blog / presence grow I think it is equally / if not more to focus on myself and my wellbeing.

  • I’m starting Bournemouth University this month – I’m as so excited about this and just want to settle in and get to know the area. Having a good few introductory weeks in uni is my main goal while also getting a grasp on what university life is going to be like!
  • As I’m going to be starting uni my blog is going to have to take a back seat – to prevent this affecting it too much I want to plan my blog posts a week in advance, at least. That way I don’t have to worry about missing an upload and can be more organised which will reduce stressing myself out too much!
  • While at uni I am going to be joining a gym – my goal is to go to the gym 3 times a week (hopefully 4 but I don’t have my timetable yet so I’m not sure what times I will have free to do so).
  • My final September goal is to make lots of new friends and say yes to more opportunities.


Although this is the month that I will be starting my life as a struggling uni student its nice to dream about the below!

If you would like to purchase anything from my September 2017 Wishlist just click on the pictures and they will take you straight there and please don’t forget to tweet me pictures if you get anything from the wishlist!


  • Naked Heat Palette – I absolutely love the Naked palettes and the colours of the Heat one are so beautiful for an autumn look and nothing I have in any of my other palettes! I’ve seen so many positive reviews about this palette so may just have to treat myself to it!

  • Miss Selfridge fluted top – I am in desperate need of more tops that have a slightly longer sleeve that I can wear for a transition into autumn without having to wear a jacket with (because we all know how British weather likes to mess us around). *cue eye roll*


  • Asos Meerkat PJ’s – Meerkats are my absolute favourite animals in the world (besides my little dog) and some loungewear with them on is a definite NEED from me.

  • Ugg scuffette slippers, Ceramic – I need new slippers and ones that are comfy and also pretty tick all of my boxes and these Ugg ones do just that! I have never owned a pair of slippers like these ones, I always have the bootie ones and as I wear slippers most days I think investing in a decent pair that will last is a sensible idea! Controversial opinion but I absolutely love my Ugg boots (warmest things I have ever owned).


Thank you for reading!

Best wishes, Gee x
