Lifestyle Monthly Goals

Hello September – What Mischief Can We Get Up To?

Well Hello there September it’s nice to see you again. Finally it’s the time for cosy woollen knits, fleecy blankets in front on the fake fire, the burning of glorious scented candles and drinking copious amounts of pumpkin spiced lattes, the dark nights drawing in and a whole new set of monthly goals and chances of new kinds of mischief to get up to.

From September onwards I’m planning on doing a monthly post outlining what my monthly goals will be and tell you my lovely readers what I’ve got planned for the month. My aim in this new kind of post is to encourage myself to actually attempt my monthly goals instead of just pondering them and never doing anything about them. In a way I guess I’m holding myself accountable and if I don’t complete what I’ve set out to do then you can all give me a row for it.


I don’t have many things planned this month but I do have a couple of exciting things coming up.

  • Canal Theatre – The Resurrection is the first thing on the agenda this month. It’s a show that is performed by a walking theatre in Falkirk in a tunnel that is a bit spooky. Telling the story of Burke & Hare. A post will be up on Thursday reviewing the show.
  • I’m attending a blogging panel in Glasgow, which I am excited about as I’ve never been to any blogging events but I am also anxious about as I will be going on my own and will need to get the train home at night-time in the dark. I don’t like being out in the dark.
  • Its my mums birthday in September, I haven’t got anything planned yet. but will hopefully find something for us to do.


  • Get back into going to the gym. I haven’t been for a while due to pain and lack of motivation but I want to improve my health and I can do that sitting on my backside. There will be an update post at some point this month.
  • Drink more water. I am rubbish at remember to drinking enough water each day.
  • Sort out a house work rota.  Boring I know but because of my chronic illness I can’t blitz through the housework in one day so I am challenging myself to do one thing a day whether it’s hoovering the living room, cleaning the bathroom or general tidying.
  • Sort out my desk for writing.  I’m turning my dressing table into a makeshift desk and I want to make it a more creative place for me to write.
  • Plan out and start writing my posts for October.  I want to be a prepared blogger, so that if there are days where I am unable to write I have content ready to be posted.

Looking Forward To

  • The nights drawing in and it getting darker early, not too early though.  Theres something about the dark nights that makes your home feel cosy and inviting.  Especially when burning scented candles.
  • Leaves falling.  At the moment the leaves have started falling already but I love it when there are lots on the ground and they crunch as you walk through them.
  • Autumnal colours.  I love the colours of autumn from the burnt oranges to deep reds.
  • Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks and trying their new Caramelised Pecan Latte.

  1. Thank you for sharing your goals. I don’t set goals as it is a blow when I don’t achieve them but I must plan my blog posts more I think!!!

    1. I don’t normally set goals but I’m hoping by posting only a couple each month it will make me achieve them so I don’t look like a numpty lol. Blog organisation is a big thing for me. I normally end up writing it the night before, so it’s not always my best work. X

      1. I’m definitely going to try to keep track of my posts more!!

  2. So far I have only set blogging goals! Want to try and improve my Instagram engagement and and increase my mailing list!

    1. Those are good goals. I’ve tried to engage more on social media lately. X

  3. Can’t believe it’s September already! This year has flown by. I’m also so excited for autumn and can’t wait for darker nights and leaves on the ground x

    1. I know I feel that if I blink the next thing I’ll know it’s Christmas! X

  4. Awesome goals!! Good luck for the blogger panel:) I’m also looking forward to pumpkin spice lattes! I had my first one a few years ago in England because they didn’t have Starbucks in Luxembourg! They’re so good:) thanks for sharing!

  5. autumn is my FAV season, I love the cosy nights in and the colours! ooo a blogging panel get you! enjoy 😛

    1. Thank you. I’m hoping I will learn some stuff to help improve my blog. I’m a bit nervous already as I won’t know anyone there but I’m sure it’ll be fine 🙂 x

    I love this and should start doing this. It really does lay out and a clear and concise plan, doesn’t it. Sometimes it’s better than just keeping it all in your head. I’ve been feeling a bit cluttered in the mind lately haha being a bit busy between work and blogging AND life in general. I think this is a great idea for me to do. Thank you. Good luck with yours! I am going to meet some fellow bloggers this week too!

    1. Thank you. I’m the same my head is full of stuff and hoping being more organised will help. Oh I hope you have a good time meeting the other bloggers 😀 x

  7. nice to see you’ve set goals.
    hope you get through them all

    1. Thanks. I’m hoping so too 😀 x

  8. I don’t set monthly goals and it’s more because I don’t believe that I will actually stick to them than anything. Maybe it would be good to start with small goals and gradually build them up? I hope you’re able to get all of these done!

    Lauren 🙂 x

    1. Thanks Lauren. Me too. I’m hoping putting them online will mean that I’ll get them all done 😀 x

  9. Ooooh a walking theatre? That sounds so interesting and unique!! Plus, I gotta try that pecan caramel latte as I’m not crazy over pumpkin spice haha. I set goals for myself every month, too! Love ticking them off

    1. It was really interesting. Not sure if I’m totally happy with the post I’ve written about it though as it’s kind of different from what I normally post. The ticking off is the best part 😀 x
