Happy New Year! I’m so excited to be back blogging and I’ve got so many ideas for Dose Of B this year. Today I thought I’d see how many of my 2019 resolutions I managed (you can read my post here). I’m also going to share some of my 2020 goals!
Blogging | I didn’t manage to hit all my 2019 goals for my blog unfortunately. However, I’m not letting this get me down as I was lucky enough to work with some great brands. These included Hunkemöller and Misguided Fragrances which still feels like a dream. My photography has definitely improved a bit, and I’m excited to use my Olympus Pen more. I have so many ideas for this year that I’m not sure where to start!
Travel | My boyfriend and I saved a lot last year to be able to travel more. One of my goals was to visit somewhere different every month. We kicked the year off with some day trips to London and Bath. You can read more about these here and here. We also took my boyfriend on his first Skiing holiday with my family, and hit the slopes in Austria. I’m a bit of a bargain hunter and managed to score budget flights to Barcelona and Paris. The food in Barcelona was fantastic, and we walked miles wandering the city. We went from visiting the Sagrada Familia to exploring Mount Tibidabo (yes, the one from Joey’s backpacking through Europe story!). We celebrated our 4 year anniversary in Paris, and even had a day in DisneyLand Paris!
Life | So last year was a big year for us because…… WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!! It still hasn’t sunk in to be honest, and I didn’t share it on here at the time. We had so much going on that my home blog posts took a back seat, but that’s about to change. I have loads of content coming on decorating on a budget, and tips for first time buyers! This is something we’ve been working towards for ages and we’re so happy to be in our own home. My little cat lived with my parents during university, so we’ve brought her to live with us now. It’s so lovely to have someone else home when my partner is working nights.
I decided to take planning my goals slowly as I tend to put too much pressure on myself. I just want to enjoy 2020 and enjoy the little things.
Learn a language | I absolutely love learning different languages and studied Welsh, Spanish and French in school. My French is definitely the strongest out of those three, so I’m starting with that. I’ve downloaded Duolingo and can’t wait to start to améliorer mon Français!
Travel More | I already have 2 holidays booked this year, so I’ve been saving as much as possible. I’m off to explore Canada with my boyfriend and his family in the summer! We are also travelling to Florida towards the end of September. We have a weekend in London too this month so I’ll share more about that soon!
Focus on Dose Of B | I work full time, and my rota doesn’t always leave me the most free time. I struggled a lot last year to keep on the schedule I wanted! Ideally I’m going to write a few blog posts a week and stay more active over on my Instagram. There are also some brands I would love to work with this year and fingers crossed I can achieve some of these. These include Disney (I know, but I can dream!) and PIXI Beauty.
I hope you enjoyed reading and I’d love to know what your highlights of 2019 were! What are your 2020 goals?
