5 - 5 Goals of 2016

It's that time of the year when the NEW YEAR NEW ME facebook statuses start coming out - and the moany ones shortly follow. I'm personally not someone who set myself new year resolutions as I feel like they never stick - I usually set myself some goals for the entirety of the year as I feel like they're more realistic for me to achieve.
Some of them are general things like read 10 books this year and some of them are a bit more personal like 'say 'no' more often'

So, for anyone interested (feel free to skip this post!) below are my 5 goals of 2016.

Dear Diary
Every year I always like to think that I'll have the time and the patience to write a diary entry every day of the year. I had 100's when I was younger, and I'd get to around March and every entry after that would be sporadic. My mum got me a 5 year Q&A diary for Christmas which I'm in love with. You've probably already seen these over the internet - but it's basically a 5 year diary where each day has a question. You answer the question in a couple of lines, and then repeat for the next 5 years. I love this idea so much as it means I don't have to commit to a whole page about my day (especially if I've had a super boring day) but I get to look back at it and see what I was thinking that year.

10 books
One of my 2015 goals was to read 10 books which I achieved (if you're interested in what books I read halfway through the year and my thoughts, then you can read my post here!) I was a proper little bookworm when I was younger and then life took over and I got busy and lazy. I want to make sure I keep it up and read a minimum of 10 books in 2016.

I'm super proud of how far this blog has come, especially the state it was in at the beginning of the year! It's been a really good distraction for me, and I'm able to talk about things I love and hopefully help out and give some good advice. I want to make sure that I keep it up and carry on blogging and (maybe!) start vlogging in the future.

I haven't been on holiday since 2010 - my last holiday was before I went to uni and was with my family in Florida and Las Vegas (an excellent holiday cause Disney World). I've promised to myself that I need to get away this year. Even if it's is something small or short, I just feel the need to explore and travel and go somewhere new and exciting.

I drink a minimum of 2 litres of water a day to help with skin, digestion, all that good stuff. BUT I am rubbish at hydrating my skin. I've got my face covered - but I'm so lazy when it comes to moisturising my body. After Christmas I've gone through my toiletries and I have approx 1000 body creams, butters and lotions, and my aim for 2016 is to make sure I don't get any scaly skin. I don't know why I hate doing it so much, I think it's cause after a shower the cream/lotion/butter makes my skin cold, and I don't like doing it in the mornings because my clothes feel sticky.

And that's it! I'll no doubt add to my list of 2016 goals and add more things that I think I need to achieve.

What are your goals for 2016?
