August Goals


Hello lovely blog reader...

How have you been. I must say it is so nice to get a chance to sit down with my hot cup of tea and get thinking about the things i want to achieve this month. July has been such a whirlwind for me, in a good way though. I started a brand new job, booked a holiday and began some final renovations on our little house. The months are flying by though, like can you believe it's already August ? Or that there are only 19 weekends until Christmas, nope me neither

I thought i'd relish this chance to do some real goal setting and really think about what i'd like to see done and dusted by the time August is over. The things i came up with are:

1.  Declutter
M & i are hoping to pop our house on the market at the beginning of October so we're in a semi-mad rush to get it sale ready. It's crazy the amount of stuff 2 people cam accmulate

2.  Order our wedding album & box up wedding dress
Weddings are amazing, don't get me wrong, but there is a nice wholesome that comes from finalising all those last details relating to the wedding. I've heard wonderful things about the new kikki.k online print shop, so i might try them out for an album 

3.  Set aside time to work on my blog each Sunday
Well. This has been on my list since January, enough said 

4.  Go on an adventure
I'm hoping we can do something a little different this month and enjoy a fun day/night out.

5.  Create a budget
I would really love to get a good, in depth overview of our spending habits and where the money goes, not necessarily to cut back or change the way we live but more so out of curiosity

So there you have it !
I'll report back at the start of September & let you know how i went
It's funny how writing your goals down and explaining a little bit about what you want to achieve can really get you in a inspired state of mind

Looking forward to the rest of August

Big Love, Lauren

Today feels like it has some magic behind it. 
Do you ever feel like that, like there is so much on the horizon ?

30 before 30 - Update 2




You may remember my original post here where i started my list & my last update here ! That was in November, and lots has changed since then...


Here is my {updated} list of 30 things i want to do before I hit the big 3-0

Lifestyle Overhaul - Stepping Away from the Bakery Case

I love tea ! It's one of my favorite things to drink
For as long as i have loved tea, i have also loved biscuits ! My grandma always said 'there are not alot of things that a cup of tea and a biscuit can't fix', and really was a truer word even spoken ? 

Too many of these !
