Hey guys and happy new year! I can not believe how fast 2017 went! This time last year I was getting ready for my big trip to LA which literally feels like yesterday! I hope you all had a great Christmas and new year and are ready to get the 2018 ball rolling! I definitely am and I plan to make some fun changes for the upcoming year. Now that we are a week into the new year, I thought it would be fun to share some of my 2018 goals with you!
So, I plan on going IN with my blog! I recently switched over to WordPress which I am already loving despite the nightmare it took for me to get here. I’m not tech savvy in the slightest especially when it comes to my blog which then resulted in me somehow deleting ALL my blog content! After about 30 minutes of panic, I then saw it as an opportunity to start fresh for 2018! So, I plan on being organised and getting a post up every Sunday. There will be 2 fashion posts, a beauty post/review, and a monthly wishlist! If I have a lot of content to share I will also do some mid-week posts. I am excited to get stuck into this new schedule and start bashing out some content for you guys!
I also have plans on starting a YouTube channel this year. Fun story, about 2/3 years ago I had a YouTube channel (misshoneyashleigh) where I would post mainly beauty videos. Unfortunately, I fell out of love with creating content as it was a lot of work and I wasn’t really getting the engagement I had hoped for. I got a fair amount of subscribers and it maybe could have gotten somewhere if I had continued, but it was hard for me to stay consistent at the time! I am planning on bringing that channel back to life and go at it from a completely different angle, a fashion angle! To be honest, fashion has always been my main passion and I honestly don’t know why I didn’t go down that route in the first place! The channel is going to consist of lookbooks, hauls, styling and lots of other fun fashion content. I plan on starting around April time when it doesn’t get dark at 12 pm lol! I will let you know on my socials so feel free to follow me to keep up to date!
Creating and Selling
This year I want to take time to study the success of selling on Amazon. For a while now I have been wanting to launch a product that can benefit women, especially women of colour. I want to start off selling it on Amazon to test the waters but from doing some brief research into it, selling on Amazon is a whole task in itself! I also have to find a wholesaler and all that stuff which is probably going to result in me taking a course to understand it all! I have already registered the name of the company and I am really excited about it! I am taking my time with it but all will be revealed soon (hopefully).

There are also a few smaller 2018 goals that I would like to achieve. I definitely want to exercise more whilst maintaining a healthier eating lifestyle. I want to start waking up at 8.30 everyday! Being self-employed, it is so easy to wake up at stupid o’clock because you are on your own schedule. Finally, I want to put my all into everything thing I am passionate about. Whether it’s blogging, YouTube or dancing, I want work hard and always put my best work forward! So, enough rambling! Thank you for reading and let me know what some of your 2018 goals are!
