Blogmas Day 3: My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated- Chapter 5 recap and Chapter 6 aims :)

On the 9th of July I uploaded my Month 1 aims for my Changing my life series and now I’ve just finished Chapter 5 of my Changing My Life series and am very excited to get started on my Chapter 6 aims- Chapter 5 was really focused on flowing from Halloween into Christmas but this month I would love to get really into the Christmas spirit!!

Favourite quote of the month: Make everyday a little less ordinary πŸ™‚

England went into another nationwide lockdown for the month of November and so my friend Barghavi actually moved in with me for the month which has been absolutely lovely! We have been chilling watching Netflix, spending lots of time with Maya, taking her for lots of walks and making/eating lots of good food πŸ™‚

  • Cook my pancetta risotto and also cook something new :)- On the 12th of November I cooked the Pancetta risotto for everyone for dinner which was absolutely lovely and then on the 23rd I made Sweet and Sour Chicken which was absolutely delicious if I do say do myself πŸ˜› I found the recipe on BBC good food and then adapted it to fit my needs as the original recipe called for raw chicken to be cooked by putting it in the microwave!! I used a wok for everything on the hob and added some different spices and I think it turned out ok πŸ™‚ I also made Biscoff muffins again which everyone seemed to enjoy πŸ™‚
  • Run 3k at least twice this month :)- I have been so so so off my running game this month and actually haven’t run at all!! Am definitely planning on getting back to it very soon though as I was really enjoying it and it would be such a shame to lose the stamina I did build up πŸ™‚
  • Do a Black Friday haul :)- I went a bit mental Black friday shopping this year, I did two massive hauls in Superdrug and Boots of their Christmas gifting which I’m going to show in a blog post later in the month but also I have been shopping at the Disney Store, ASOS, H&M and New Look for some new clothes πŸ™‚ I think I have ended up with 3 new tops, three new dresses, two new pairs of shoes and a skirt πŸ™‚
  • Continue working on my training knowledge and do a few work webinars- I have been watching quite a few training videos over the past month which has been really educational and also did a few days back at work which was really really fun and good for my mental health and brain power I think and I can’t wait till I’m back at work full time which will hopefully be soon! Due to the national lockdown in the UK Mayas training classes haven’t been happening but we have been working at home and my aunt actually gave me a competition style jump so I have been having a play with that which has been epic! πŸ™‚
  • Do some Christmas shopping, take down my Halloween decorations and start setting up for Christmas :)- I started to gradually take down my Halloween decorations over a few days at the start of November whilst watching the few remaining Halloween films on my lists. I also did quite a few Amazon orders and managed to pick up a few bits whilst shopping for the essentials on our rare trips out and have actually wrapped all of my Christmas presents now!! πŸ™‚ I will officially put up my tree on the 1st of December but I have started putting up a few Christmassy bit in my room a bit early and will have a post on the decor later in the month πŸ™‚
  • Write up a country from my Great Grandmas journal- This months country was the Island of Gozo which is a little Island near to Malta and has a very interesting story regarding Calypso (Atlases daughter) and Ulysses who she tried to lure onto this Island to kidnap him which is why there is a cave named after her here which is said to be beautiful!
  • Reach 1400 followers on here, have a photoshoot and start writing blogmas posts :)- I didn’t quite reach my goal of 1400 followers on here but I am so happy with the posts I have been writing recently and want to thank every single one of my followers for following me ❀ ❀ ❀ I’m aiming for 1500 by the end of the year but we’ll see πŸ™‚ I have also started writing my Blogmas posts which I always get very excited about! This will be my fourth year attempting Blogmas and my second time posting everyday for a month this year as I also posted everyday in July πŸ™‚ One of my posts later in the month is a Christmassy themed make-up look and I had such a lot of fun taking photos with Maya πŸ™‚

As December is going to be such a manic month and also I am not going to be posting in January I am going to combine my goals for the next two chapters and will update you guys in the first week of February πŸ™‚

  • Reach 1500 followers and complete Blogmas for my fourth year πŸ™‚
  • Decide and write my New Years Resolutions
  • Complete my Autumn/Winter Bucket List
  • Cook something new and bake at least two things πŸ™‚
  • Get back into my running game and re-start the couch-5K
  • Continue working on my training knowledge, teach Maya a new trick and work on her hold and do some work webinars
  • Have a mega GYST day- sort my laptop and organise my room and documents

Let me know in the comments what my aims for February should be and because it will be two months instead of one until I update you guys I may add some goals as I go πŸ™‚

    Excited for your Black Friday haul! I have actually been really good this year and have not ordered a single thing. * insert angel emojii*

  2. Well, my follower goal for 2020 is to reach 1000 followers, but about 50 short

    Seeing those pictures of food reminded me of Thanksgiving- I actually made the pumpkin pie

    I couldn’t really buy much in November- not knowing what my other family members already got me for Christmas

    Fortunately, the US hasn’t reached the point of a 2nd lockdown- however feeling like forever till things go back to kinda of normal. If I don’t see a musical in 2021, that will drive me nuts

    1. Good luck with you follower goal! Would love to see a picture of your pumpkin pie it sounds amazing!! I feel the exact same way as you about seeing a musical in 2021! I was very lucky and managed to see 2 musicals in the week leading up to the UK lockdown and I’m so thankful for that! xx
