15 Things I Want To Do This Year

To Do This Year

Instead of the traditional 2017 goals post I wanted to write a little list of things I want to do this year whether they be big or small. I always want to work harder at the obvious such as live a healthy lifestyle, get outdoors at every opportunity and say yes to things I wouldn’t normally consider. But setting those in January feel like such a chore and never usually last longer than a week or two! So instead, I’ve written a list that doesn’t have a time frame and can be picked up and left off at any point in 2017. Hopefully, you’ll find some inspiration within my 15 things I want to do this year and it sparks ideas for your own year ahead!

  1. Visit at least 2 new countries.
  2. Buy a polaroid camera and get super snap happy.
  3. Start a bullet journal.
  4. Take more time off for myself.
  5. Read more books.
  6. Save up for a mortgage.
  7. Do at least 2 months of daily blogging! (Eek)
  8. Improve my blog & personal photography.
  9. Watch more TV! (Sounds crazy but I never watch TV!)
  10. Be more spontaneous.
  11. Take each day as it comes!
  12. Book my first ever massage/spa trip.
  13. Worry less & do more.
  14. Make a designer purchase towards the end of the year.
  15. Finally, have more fun!

What do you want to do this year?

    I really want to explore England/Scotland further – I’m from Northern Ireland. I want to loose a few pounds, and start blogging more frequently. x


  • Love setting up list & goals like these to work on for the year. Best of luck with all your future goals, hope you achieve them all x

    Love lists like this, it’s nice to see a change from the usual resolutions. I’m trying to save for a deposit and mortgage too from now and definitely want to travel more, balancing the two is going to be tricky haha. x

  • I loved this post – I’m so nosy! I adore your blog – just stumbled across it by chance, and it’s beautiful. Your photos are unreal!

    Love how attainable all the things you want to do this year are – I’m off to a) follow you and b) make my own list now :}

  • I definitely agree with almost all of these! I really want to book a weekend spa break as well, I’ve never been but constantly say how much I’d love to experience one so I think I’ll have to look into arranging one with my sister some time this year. Lovely post <3 xxx

    What a nice list. Do you use Goodreads? It’s a great way to track reading goals and get suggestions! It really helped me!

  • Some great ideas for 2017, hope you manage to achieve them. Sophie x

    I love the idea of daily blogging for at least a full month. I think it would be interesting to see how well I could cope with doing it.

  • Jenn

    Visiting 2 new countries is a good one! I really need to take more time for myself too, I’m trying to make that the key focus of this year.


  • your blog photography is already incredible girl! I also want to visit new places this year, even if it’s to the UK!! I’ve also never had a massage or a spa treatment but I doubt it’d be for me haha! I’m not such a touchy feely person, I can’t even stand the hairdresser washing my hair! I imagine i’d feel vey exposed and uncomfortable lol!


  • Love your list! I definitely want to worry less and do more too x

    Daily blogging for two months sounds like such hard work but so enjoyable and rewarding at the same time. Means us readers will never get bored haha!

  • One of my goals this year is to start a bullet journal, I’ve ordered the notebook so I’m really excited to give it a go. Hope you manage to do everything you want this year – happy 2017!

  • I’m going to try and take more pictures this year. I would love a Polaroid camera but I don’t trust myself because I would probably loose the photos!

  • There’s so many things I’d like to do this year – that’s why one of my goal is to say yes/no more. I’d really love to go to Stockholm but I don’t think I’ll be doing any big trips this year even though I’d like to :)x
