Ooh, remember, remember, the fifth of November....Funnily enough, it actually is the fifth of November, but I'm sad to say that I haven't been able to get out my winter warmers, wrap up nice and cosily and go and watch a stunning firework display. However, I do hope that some of you lovelies did, despite the horrendous weather - perhaps it hasn't been as bad where you are? Fingers crossed.
I haven't really updated you or shared much about my day to day life on here of late, but at the same time, I think I have been sharing rather a lot on Twitter, so I'm sure the majority of you are not feeling left in the dark. On the off chance that you are, you needn't be, as there is very little of note to report! However, I must admit, I am getting super excited for Christmas, and am really struggling to choose between all the gorgeous gift sets hitting the shops at the moment. I've definitely got my eye on some bits from Mac, Illamasqua and Origins, but it's not easy to narrow it down!
I just looked back at my October Agenda post, and it seems as though it was only a few days ago that I was writing it! Anyway, let's see what goals I had set for myself for the month, and whether or not I was successful.
1. Carry on saving as much money as possible.
I was feeling pretty rubbish at the beginning of the month, which inevitably led to some Ebay comfort buying.
2. Stop being a hypochondriac.
After a bit of a rough start to the month, I am now feeling a zillion times better! I feel much more like myself than I have done in some while, so let's hope that that continues. As for the hypochondria, I have forbidden myself to Google anything to do with health in the negative sense, and it seems to be doing the trick.
3. Keep up the daily exercise.
Well. I'm not exactly doing it daily. But I am doing it several times a week, which I think is a happy medium. Some days, there genuinely isn't time, and I only stress myself out trying to squeeze it in. For me, that half defeats the object, because a huge part of the reason I'm tring to do it in the first place is to combat stress. So I let myself off on those couple of days, and I'm fine with that.
4. Blog Brainstorming
I wanted to sit down and have a think about what is next for my blog, and that I have done, as I feel that there are so many more things I would like to write about and feature on here. Of course, it does involve planning, as although on some days I can happily sit down and write for hours, there is still the matter of taking photos etc.
Now, what's on the agenda for this month?
1. Make some more Youtube videos.
My first one went up a couple of days ago, and despite my long-held reservations, in the end I enjoyed doing it. Expect to see more soon!
I've still got loads of products waiting to be reviewed - some good, some bad, and I really want to share my thoughts with you on those.
3. Keep my clothes organised.
Bit of a boring one, but the room where I keep my clothes often tends to look as though my wardrobe has exploded. Granted, I don't have enough space, but I really want to keep things at least in an organised state of chaos, as it's so frustrating when I'm in a hurry and can't find what I'm looking for.
I love reading, and do read books quite regularly, but over the past few weeks I have been picking up and putting books down like there's no tomorrow, without ever seeming to get anywhere! My mind just seems to be somewhere else, and I can't concentrate come hell or high water. I really want to overcome this, as it's actually stopping me from doing something I really enjoy!
That's it for this month's November Agenda. What tasks and goals are on yours this month?
