2019 Goals

Yes I’m very late with this, but it’s here. Finally… This post is more for me to look back at, as it publicly shames me into actually doing something about it. That’s dramatic; I know, but you get the idea.

Plus it’s nice to be able to set goals and reflect on them later, and it gives me things to focus on throughout the year which I think is important. Again, I know it’s late, but Happy New Year!

Let’s get into my goals!

Buy Less Makeup

Yep, I’m clearly starting out with the most important one here… In all honesty I have too much and it’s becoming a bit of a joke. I don’t need anymore and I feel like I’m getting out of the hoarders/ collectors mindset of needing everything. Which my bank account is very thankful for. Of course this doesn’t cover necessities, but I don’t need another gold highlighter.

Learn How to Cook

2018 called, it wants it goal back… I’m sorry, that was terrible. You may remember this goal from last year, and if you don’t…. well, this is a goal from last year. I just want to learn how to cook, even if its basic meals. It’s getting embarrassing that I can’t cook. If you have any recipe recommendations then I’d love to hear them!


Yes here we go, it’s this one again. The one that’s always on here and probably always will. I really need to start exercising more often, especially after Christmas. I really want to make more of an effort. I got in a good little routine in September last year, and I need to pick it back up. Hopefully 2019 is the year.


In a bid to not use all of my goals from last year, I’m re wording. It’s definitely cheating, but we’ll just skip past that bit. I want to have a good clear out as I have too much stuff. I’m a hoarder, so you can imagine that it’s not the best. With last years goal I made a good start, but not as good as I’d have wanted. Hence why it’s here again.

Be More Proactive

This is a new one. By this I mean stop sitting back and letting things happen and take more action to actually do things. Instead of waiting for other people to organise things, I want to try to plan some things myself. This might not sound major, but I’m terrible for sitting back and waiting for things to come to me, when I should be taking steps to make them happen.

Be Active Online

I wasn’t sure how to word this one, as I don’t want a numbers based goal like last year. Numbers aren’t everything and they’re not my main goal. My main goal is to be active and blog regularly and update Twitter and Instagram more than once a week. This is because I enjoy blogging, but I barely did any last year. I also want to use my socials to be social and talk to more bloggers. 

That is everything! Hopefully I’m able to make a good start and carry it on throughout the year.

Have you set any goals for the year?

Thank you for reading!

    I feel like cooking is one of those things where it’s hard to bring yourself to start but once you do it’s actually pretty easy. There is such a large number of places to get recipes on these days that I think you can find a fairly easy recipe for just about everything. I have a few goals at the moment but not many, just more general things I’m trying to do.

  5. Naya says:

    These are all fantastic goals, Hannah! I really like the fact that you’re being honest with yourself – personally I can’t cook to save my life but that is something I am not even remotely interested in because what I cook is not always edible lol But I hope you make more progress than me! xx

    These are all really great goals! For learning to cook I highly recommend using Pinterest to look up recipes! There are so many easy to make recipes on there that are really good. Best of luck with all of your goals; you got this!

    These sound like great goals! I’m sure you’ll find by buying less that will help with the decluttering too! haha! I’m so bad at getting rid of things, so I find slowing my shopping helps as there is less stuff I’m adding to everything I own and my small little declutters can make more of an impact! 🙂

    Hope that you are having a nice weekend 🙂 We spent yesterday on the bay celebrating Australia day – despite the heat! Our heatwave continues!

      Thank you! That’s true, hopefully with less coming in, it’ll be easier to manage. It’s hard isn’t it?! I hope you’re able to get into it.

      Thank you, and the same to you! Ah, I’m so jealous, that sounds like such a great day xx

  14. Buying less is definitely on my agenda but I don’t think I’ll survive! 🙁

    Aw great goals! I’d love to cook better too 😀 my goal for this year is to get some fresh fruit and veg growing, as I find it difficult to get out and get fresh produce in regularly. I’m hoping it will boost my diet and I may become more adulty, let’s pretend that’s a word haha! Always love your blog and photos 😀 xx

  20. Melissa Kacar says:

    So many of these are my 2019 goals, as well! I especially want to start exercising, being more productive during the day, and declutter things I don’t need anymore. Best of luck to you in accomplishing your goals this year! Thanks for sharing! 🙂


  21. Alice says:

    I’m so glad to hear that someone else can’t cook because I’m the EXACT same. I just get so anxious that I’m going to undercook or overcook it or that it’s going to taste horrible and that people are going to remember it FOREVER. My boyfriend is the best cook aswell so to be honest that’s just made me a bit lazy haha. I am the exact same with makeup and decluttering, too! I am in desperate need of a massive clear out of everything to be honest, including makeup! I wish you the best of luck with all of it 🙂
    Alice Xx

    • luxuryblush says:

      haha I’m glad it isn’t just me too! Yes same, and there’s nothing worse than undercooking something! Aw, at least he can cook, maybe he could teach you? Definitely getting too much stuff, but can imagine it’ll feel so much better afterwards. Thank you so much xx

  22. Dena Jayne says:

    I’m trying to buy less makeup too! WE GOT THIS GIRL! I’ve decided to go on a no buy for 2/3 months! Good luck with your goals babe!


  23. Anna says:

    Sounds like 2019 will be a busy busy year for you! Haha this reminds me that I wanted to learn how to cook a few years ago, but I didn’t. My cooking still tastes so bland and looks gross. But hey, at least it’s all edible!


  24. Nice goals. I wish you that you achieve every one of them. I like the “being proactive” goal, if I think about it, it would benefit me as well.


  25. Julia says:

    I feel like I have heaps of recipes I could recommend to you, but I can’t write them all in a comment or it would be the longest comment in existence, haha. I like to cook but I also love to bake, and I know some people who are really good bakers but they don’t love cooking that much!
