My aims for January were:
Tell friends and family about Ditzy Glamour.
I did this right at the beginning of January, as I was so scared, I thought that people would think it's so weird. I mentioned it on Facebook and got such an amazing response (hi if any of you are reading this!) and although not many people told me they read it, my page views increased by like 150 that day. I also created a Facebook page to make it easier for people to follow that way, please 'like' it!
I was so looking forward to this, and dreading it at the same time. As I work two doors down from a McDonalds, I was getting food from there up to 2 or 3 times a week. Not only was it making me ill, I was wasting a ridiculous amount of money. And that's not even including weekends! So Aiden and I made a joint decision to not get any takeaways and it's been great. We've also ended up going out for meals a lot more, which is spending money but a lot more enjoyable.
Start going to car boot sales.
I must admit I failed on this one. I didn't go to any, but looking back, what was I thinking? It's January. It's cold. I think I was a little too optimistic on this one. On a plus note, I have got boxes and bags all packed up ready to go when I decide it's warm enough.
Take lots of photos.
I've been doing quite well on this one, I haven't taken as many as I wanted to (I kind of forgot for the first two weeks) but here's a few that I've taken this month:
Complete Frugal February
I really wanted to do this last year, but didn't, so this year it's a must as I really need to save. See yesterday's post for more information.
Take more photos
I know this was January's aim too, but I really need lots of photos, and I want to take a lot more. (If I don't make it an aim I won't do it!)
Recently, I have noticed that there is always something to do. Whether it's working, doing uni work, blogging, or sorting things out, there's always something. Because of this, I never just stop. Last weekend, Aiden and I had a night in watching films and I loved it. There was no phone, no laptop, just relaxing, and I've realised I need to do that more. So my aim is to watch more films and read more books with no distractions. That includes no taking my blackberry into the bath. I. Must. Switch. Off.
What are your aims for February?
