2018 Goals – Life & Blogging

2018 Goals

It’s 2018! My benefits and vacation time has rolled over and my head is full of new dreams and aspirations for this year. I hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas & new years eve. How did you ring in the new year!? Let me know in the comments!

In my last post I gave you guys a little update on what my year was like in 2017 and what goals I met and didn’t achieve. I try not to set “resolutions” as that makes any goals I set sound incredibly final and stresses me out if I’m not on track. Any goals I set are guidelines for how I want to shape my life.

    1. The lap top & desk photos are stock images from Pexel so no photo credit is needed.They have a ton of usable photos.

      Anything makeup related on my blog has been taken with my android Nexus 5 phone 😅 I use my own photos for all my regular beauty content but I occasionally throw in a few stock images for “blogging” related content!


  1. Omg. I didn’t even know swatch stencils was a thing. My mind is blown and I need some in my life!
    Wonderful goals! I feel like these will all be a challenge for you, but are all still reasonable and reachable. Good luck with your 2018 goals, can’t wait to see what you achieve this year!

    1. Haha they are! That’s how a lot of insta accounts have these beautiful swatches, you can buy them @ polishedvino.com 😁
      Exactly, I’ll have to stay focused! Good luck to you too this year with everything you want to achieve ☺

  2. These are all great goals! Let us know how you get along creating a media kit, I’d love to know more about them. And how you do reaching out to brands 🙂 x


  3. I’ve always wondered about doing a cut crease but I don’t think it’d look good with my eye shape.
    I learned about swatching stencils recently and I’m bummed it wasn’t an earlier discovery!
    Good luck with all your goals for 2018!
