Alright, alright, alright how are we doing? It’s March already. March. March. However, we’ll be stepping into Spring very soon, the flowers will be blooming (will they? With all this snow?) and it’s almost Easter. Which means it’s almost time to send myself into a chocolate coma. My favourite time of year! In all honesty, I do love this time of year. I’m not a fan of Summer but I do like being able to spend some time reading in my garden and smelling the Spring air without it being too blisteringly hot. I always find I’m really productive at this time of year as well. Maybe it’s something about Spring being a new season, a new start that ignites that motivation in me. So let’s see what I’m hoping to achieve this month!
1. Don’t pick my nails for a week: I have absolutely no confidence that I’ll be able to manage this one. I have picked my nails for as long as I can remember and they are disgusting. Honestly, I know a lot of people say their nails are gross but mine are fucking dreadful. It’s almost an obsession of mine now; I love picking things and my own nails are the closest and most convenient things for me to pick. But I want to stop or at least attempt to stop. So this is going to be bloody challenging but I’ll give it my best go.
2. Don’t go on Facebook for a week: I was chatting to someone on Twitter in February after I had a little moan about how much I hated Facebook and wondered why I even still bother with it and she said she’d deleted the app from her phone and felt much better for it. So I want to experiment not using Facebook for a while. My only issue with this one is that I share my blog posts through my blog’s Facebook page but I can always schedule the posts for the week I know I won’t be using it. Work around your problems, yo! (This doesn’t include Facebook Messenger)
3. Hi 9k on Twitter: Taking this one over from February which was on my February goals list but I didn’t quite hit it. I’m hoping to hit this big milestone in March! I’m also super happy with myself for not getting worked up over the fact that I didn’t hit one of my blogging goals for February and just rolling it over to the next month. There’s always next month.
4. Re-read a book I love: I haven’t re-read an old favourite for so, so long. It’s something I used to do much more often but sometimes I get a thought in my head that it’s a waste of time but it’s absolutely not. Not freaking way. Reading something that means something to you and that you hold dear in your heart will never be a waste of time. So a re-read is on the cards for March!
5. Read 5 books: Which I did not do last month. Not by a mile! So I wanna up my reading game again in March.
6. Go out for afternoon tea / tea and cake with my Mum: Not a goal as such but just something I’d like to do in March being as it’s Mother’s Day and we haven’t really done that in a while! There’s a lovely tiny little tearoom in a park near where we live which I love popping in to get a drink from whenever we walk the dog over there. It’s all Vintage and I love supporting a small business at the same time!
7. Watch Moana: Yes you have permission to shout at me in the comments. I haven’t seen Moana yet.
8. Hit 5,000 blog followers: This would be such an amazing milestone!
Love your March Goals. I had the same problem as you do with #1, and happy to say that I’m 5 months of no picking at my nails. #2 is also another great one, I think I’m going to do that one this month too, starting tomorrow…lol.

Wow well done! I wish I could go 5 minutes without picking mine!
I find that so many people have been tired of facebook lately. A lot of my friends already deleted their accounts!
It’s not a great place to be anymore!
I haven’t seen Moana either, so I won’t shout at you at all. I love these goals and really want to do some for April 🙂

Haha! Thank you. It was very good though 🙂 xxx
Always love your goals babe, they are refreshing! Good luck with this months goals, can’t wait to see you succeed xx
Thanks so much, not doing TOO bad this month xxx
Great goals – good luck with them! Can you try fiddling with something else when you feel the urge to pick at your nails? x
I’ve tried that I really have! I think it goes much deeper than that though, it’s almost like a form of self destruction for me xxx
These are great goals honey! I was thinking about staying off Facebook too – I don’t actively hate it but I find it a little pointless and would much rather use Twitter or Instagram! xo

Yeah that’s what I think too. I can tell you know it’s not as hard as what you’d imagine! xxx
Interesting goals! I will try to disconnect my Facebook from my phone, otherwise I will not be able to fulfill. Good luck with your goals and thanks for sharing!
Love these goals! I’m hoping to go out for tea on Mother’s Day too. And yes, you have to watch Moana!
Hope you have a lovely time! I’m going to try and make sure I watch it this weekend!
Good luck hitting 9k hun 😁 also…how the hell have you not seen Moana yet!? 😂 true it’s not my favorite ever but I love having it on in the background when I’m working lol
I just recently hit 9k so I’m chuffed! And I don’t know! Will DEFINITELY watch it soon! xxx
My brother’s trying to stop picking his nails too, just spoke to him about it funnily enough. He says he’s using this smelly nail polish to stop himself from doing so. All the best with your goals this month 🙂
I would use that stuff but I honestly have no nails to put it on. Plus I don’t bite them, so it wouldn’t make a difference, Sigh! Thank you (: xx
Good luck with your goals, Moana has to be one of my fav Disney films, it’s such a classic!
Thank you! I’ve heard such good things xxx
I love the one about spending quality time with your mum! I hope you hit all your goals girl! xx
Thank you (: always important! xxx
“Stop picking my nails” *she reads while picking at the skin around her nails* haha I really need to stop this too! As well as reading more books 🙂 Hope you hit your social media goals too!
Haha whoops! Thank you 🙂 I’ve hit all my social media goals already woohoo! xxx
Ahhh I can’t believe you haven’t seen Moana!! It’s the best! You definitely need to make that top of your March to do list! Afternoon tea with your mum will be lovely I’m sure! I’m hoping to take mine for a day out too!
Awh hope you have a lovely time! You know what I will VOW to watch it this weekend xxx
Hi, going out for afternoon tea is a must. I love the idea or rereading an old book and I think I may have to give this a try.
Go for it! xxx
I love the mix of personal and professional goals. I think I want to get to 250 followers by the end of march on my blog, and 500 on my twitter.
Thank you (: best of luck! I’m sure you’ll smash it! xxx
I just shared my goals over on my blog. But I love have specific and practical these are! 😃 Hope you achieve them all! X
Thank you- you too! Xxx
These are all amazing goals! Best of luck for everything! I have been re-reading a book a love like… actually.. 3 times aha! but it is just so good! I have not set myself goals yet, but maybe i should! xx corinne
Haha I’ve got a few I’ve read more than 3 times too, if you love it you love it! xxx
Love your goals. Good luck with everything!
Thank you (: xx
Some cool goals there and I already saw on Twitter that you achieved some! Looking forward to seeing what books you read.
Thank you! I have indeed, March got off to a good start (: xxx
I might try not goin on Facebook for a week too! I find it can be a really negative place so that’s a good one to try!
Definitely can! Honestly, I’m not finding it as hard as I thought I would!
I’m quite new to blogging and I noticed you have a goal to increase your twitter followers. Is there anything particular that you do on twitter to meet other bloggers and increase traffic? Thanks!
Not really, just engage, share posts and get involved! It’s taken 4 years to reach this many twitter followers! xxx
Thank you (: xx
Well done on already hitting your blog and Twitter milestones! Moana isn’t one of my favourite Disney films tbh, I think it’s majorly overrated, but I hope you enjoy it.
Thank you (: oh that’s a shame but not everyone will like all of them! xxx
Good luck for your goals x
Thank you (: xx
I also haven’t re-read a book in a while, probably since I was a kid. I tend to think of it as wasteful too but you just motivated me! It really can be relaxing and fun 😊
It can indeed and it’s also not stressful in the slightest cos you know you’re going to enjoy it! xxx
I love how you do monthly goal posts! I love reading your wrap-ups and seeing how you did during the month too! I think staying off Facebook for a week is my favorite for this month. I personally got rid of mine a while ago and feel like the results were astounding! Good luck with everything, can’t wait to hear which book you are choosing to reread 😁
Awh thank you! Monthly goals are working really well for me this year, I’m glad I started them (: xxx
Let me know what you think of Moana! ☺️
I shall do! xxx
Good luck with your goals for march x
Thank you xx
I love re-reading favourite books, it’s one of the reasons I find it so hard to ever get rid of any, haha. And if you need a pal to watch Moana with, Flora’s your girl. She loves it. Her school are doing it in the summer term and she’s asked to be the chicken. I haven’t seen the film yet so I can only imagine… Alas, I’m sorry to have to tell you that Messenger is part of Facebook ergo it DOES COUNT!!! That aside (!) fab goals, Jenny, can’t wait to hear how you get on xxx
Lisa | http://www.lisasnotebook.com
Haha well I don’t think facebook messenger counts as I’m only talking to friends, I’m not aimlessly scrolling for hours and it’s not making me feel bad about myself or unproductive. Facebook messenger is my only means of contact for some people, I can’t cut it out and it’s a separate app, so doesn’t count! I don’t need to go on actual Facebook in order to use it (: x
Good luck with your goals, I can’t believe you haven’t seen Moana yet!
Me neither haha! xxx
You have some amazing goals, I can’t wait to see what you acheive angel! You’re achieving so much right now my lovely!
Love, Amie ❤

Thanks Amie! I’m on a bit of a roll but under no illusion that it’ll last haha xxx
Really great goals babe, I’m wishing you all the luck that you achieve them. Thank you for sharing 🌸✨
With love, Alisha Valerie x | http://www.alishavalerie.com
Thank you (: xxx
Good luck with your March goals. A break away from Facebook sounds good, I deactivated over a year ago & it was such a weight lifted from my shoulders. Strange that Facebook has the ability to make you feel like that when Twitter and insta are so supportive. Looking forward to seeing how you get on with your March goals x
Definitely weird isn’t it! Although Insta makes me feel a bit crap as well. Twitter is so supportive when you find the right people xxx
You definitely need to watch Moana haha 😂 And I agree about Facebook
I don’t like it too. Good luck with your goals! All the best:-)
Thank you (: I’ll definitely watch it! xxx
Thank god I am not the only one who hasn’t watched Moana yet! Good luck with your goals I have been waiting to reread some books too! I may be doing that soon as wel. Great post.
Thank you (: hope you manage your re-read xxx
Great goals! I’d love to up my content this month (range of topics and quantity) so hopefully I’ll achieve this! Good luck with your goals! xx
Ooh best of luck with that! xxx
Best of luck with your goals!
“Alright, alright, alright how are we doing?” This gave me such a flashback to Magic Mike. 🙂
My main goal for March is to finish editing my second book (a contemporary romance novel) by my birthday, March 15.
Hahaha glad you got the reference! (; Good luck with it! xxx
Great goals! I also haven’t seen moana, definitely need to get around to watching it!
Ah! Hope you enjoy it xx
Awesome goals! Wish you the best in achieving them! 🙂 x

Thank you (: xxx
Wow! Great goals …. good luck … you’ve got sooooooooooo many followers! That’s amazing!
Haha thank you xxx
Yes totally agree with the whole scheduling your posts on your Facebook page now, then you have no reason to go on your facebook at all! Also for the nail biting/picking them, why don’t you paint your nails a pretty colour, that way you wont be tempted to pick?
I’ll definitely be going back on it but if I’m the future I want to give it up completely then I know I can still use it for blogging which is great! I don’t have any nails to paint, literally xxx
Adore Moana.! Didn’t take to it as much first time but then it was sealed in the ‘will be watched over and over again’ list. Hubby still randomly puts some on=f the songs on you tube (for the kids of course;)) Good list!:) x
Haha glad you enjoyed it! xxx
I love reading what goals everyone has for months, though that might be because I’m a little nosy to see what everyone is aiming towards! Good Luck in achieving them this month Jenny! x
Haha not at all I love these kind of posts too! Thank you (: xxx
Nice goals!! Best of luck in achieving them I’ve no doubt you Will!
Thank you for the vote of confidence! xxx
