March goals: How did I do?

I can’t believe we’re at the business end of March already. I hope this month has been good to you and you’ve achieved some cool stuff! I’m looking back over my March goals today to see how I did and I can safely say I did much better than I did in February, so that’s a bonus!

1. Don’t pick my nails for a week: Did. Not. Do. Not a brilliantly start but I genuinely think my nail picking problem is much deeper and going to be much harder to budge than just sticking it on some goals post. To me, it’s kinda like a form of self destruction. So it’s possibly something I’ll need to talk to someone professional about to get to the underlying cause of why I do it so excessively before I can think about tackling it. Which is fine.

2. Don’t go on Facebook for a week: I started this one in the evening of the 1st March and successfully completed my week. To be honest, I don’t have an awful lot of feelings about this one. It wasn’t difficult. I didn’t miss it. I still used messenger because you know, I like talking to my friends. But the proper Facebook app, I didn’t use and I don’t feel much towards it. Complete!

3. Hit 9k on Twitter: Yay! I finally hit this (after it being on my goals list for 2 months) on 4th March. Inevitably, people un-followed me afterwards so it dropped again but whatever! I’m back up to 9k now.

4. Re-read a book I love: Did! I re-read Looking for Alaska by John Green. One of my absolute favourites and I have a gorgeous, gold 10th anniversary edition too. I forget how much I love my favourite books until I re-read them and fall in love with them all over again.

5. Read 5 books: I’ve read 4 full books this month (some of which were bloody amazing and will have reviews up soon for!) and I’m currently on my 5th as we speak. So I’ll consider this one done!

6. Go out for afternoon tea / tea and cake with my Mum: We didn’t manage to do this however, my parents did join my boyfriend and I for a day and night whilst we were away in Shropshire and we had a lovely meal with them so I’m not too down about not completing this as we still got to spend some time with both my parents!

7. Watch Moana: I finally, at long last, watched Moana and I gotta say… I wasn’t disappointed. At first I was like hmmmm, this is going to be over-hyped but by the end, the story-line was just so beautiful. I absolutely loved Moana as a character – what a damn fierce role model and I loved that it was a Disney film which didn’t have any romance elements to it. It was nice to see a young woman as a lead, doing what she needed to do, to save a freaking island. It was also nice to see a friendship develop between two people who shouldn’t really be friends. Loved it.

8. Hit 5,000 blog followers: I am absolutely thrilled to pieces that I achieved this one! I hit this goal on 3rd March, so early on in the month too so that’s wonderful. Thank you so much to everyone that follows me!

Did you set any goals for March? Or achieve anything cool? Any blogging milestones? Let me know!



  1. You hit so many of your goals! Feels great doesn’t it! I still haven’t watch Moana

    1. You should, it’s amazing!

  2. Wow you hit some fantastic milestones, huge congrats! And how are you only just seeing Moana? It’s so bloody good isn’t it? Have you seen CoCo yet? If not, please watch it, you’ll love it!

    My insta following actually stayed above 1000 for a whole week! Usually follow/unfollow idiots have it swinging up and down hourly, but I think I’ve finally cracked 1k.

    Check you out smashing goals all through March! Aside from the nail picking but – eh, whatever, your achievements on the rest totally outshine that anyway! I also watched Moana for the first Tim with my nieces and nephew and I absolutely *loved* it – so cute!
    Well done on all your accomplishment for March!

    1. You should! It doesn’t mater as long as you try 🙂 xxx

  12. I only made 3 goals for March and failed to hit any of them. *sad face*. I really need to kick myself up the proverbial in April. I’m back to blogging, which has helped, and I’m looking to other bloggers, like you, for inspiration.
    Congrats, on the following growth, and also on watching Moana, it’s one of my new favourite Disney movies.

    1. Oh no! Don’t let that get you down for April 🙂 xx

  13. These goals are such a good idea I might try them for this month!

    1. You should! It’s nice to have something to focus on! xxx

  14. I can’t believe how quickly March went! Good job not going back on facebook. I always try to avoid facebook, and only use messenger during the week.

    1. That’s a good idea 🙂 xxx

  15. That’s amazing girl! Congrats on all the milestones! Mine would have to be reaching 2000 WP followers! xx

    1. Thank you & woo that’s brilliant! xxx
