Why I’m not making New Year resolutions ✌🏼

So here we are, almost footsteps away from padding into the 1st Jan 2018. Where does the time go??

It may seem unusual a decision to not make any set of goals on 1st Jan to follow throughout the year, but for as long as I can remember I’ve never kept to more than 3 of my previous resolutions. I start with good intent and motivation then slowly dwindle after a few weeks then the rest of the year runs on without.

Instead I have decided to follow the SMART plan for this upcoming year, although this is not a new method of planning for those of you who are not familiar with this acronym I’ll type it below. 👇🏼

  • S – pecific
  • M – easurable
  • A – ttainable
  • R – elevant
  • T – ime based

Following this plan it becomes easier to break down your long term goals and see your mini achievements each month.

In the next 2 days I will create a mini example so you can see how to create your own and achieve more within the year!!

Up and out,

Love Lottie x

A Christmas present for the homeless

Budget version:

  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • A comb
  • Pack of face/body wipes
  • Pair of fleecy socks
  • Christmas card

Extra version (depending on how much you can give) :

  • As above with extras below ⬇️
  • Thermal top
  • Deodorant
  • Milk bottle ( to help with Vit D deficiency )
  • Sausage roll/ Home made hot quick dinner

Just as a side note this is NO way compares to what the individual deserves as everyone is deserving of a full, healthy living. This is a form of minimal help over this freezing period at Christmas, to try and help people’s lives who aren’t always able to help themselves, you could also help these people reach out to services able to make their future brighter.

Here are some sites who can give some advice on helping the homeless:

New diary for next year

Excitement overload for my 2018 diary!

When Cath Kidston created this to be so sparkly and colourful , as I intend for my next year to be, who could resist such a stationary beauty? Asides from the minor fact, I’m a clear hoarder of all things stationary and unicorn like ………

There are so many other lovely collections by the magic lady above, you should totally have a look either for yourself or as a gift to somebody whether it be bedding, kitchenware, bathrobes, purses to phone cases there’s something to suit all.

Not many days to go now!

Festive love from Lottie x
