  1. Well done on losing weight! I’ve only been on a health burst during lockdown and I have lost a couple of pounds! My problem is just not drinking enough in the day! I don’t mind drinking water I just always forget!

    • Thank you, it’s been a journey thats for sure haha! Well done, I’m glad its going well for you. Yes it can be so hard to remember to stay hydrated xx

  2. Lovely post, and you should be proud of your goal progress. Sounds like you are doing well with your cooking, I don’t do a lot but I love baking. I drink a lot of squash, I love mango and orange squash, as it tastes lovely. I don’t think I set goals for this year, but I do set smaller weekly goals. It might be nice to set some mini goals for the remainder of lockdown to look back on. Best wishes for the rest of 2020. 🙂 xx

    • Me too, they’re so interesting aren’t they?! I like to do a six month update, as it kicks me into action if things aren’t going very well haha!xx

  3. You have done so well! I’ve been on a cooking streak myself, and I am finally feeling confident enough to try out new recipes!

  5. It feels so surreal that we are halfway through the year. I feel you about weight loss. It can be harder since we can’t go to the gym or anything, but some loss is still a major victory. Congrats on losing two pounds!! I feel you about the makeup part. I was hoping I’d finish my Chanel finishing powder but that didn’t happen @__@. Keep it up!!

    • It does doesn’t it?! So much has happened, it’s so surreal. I’ve actually lost a stone and two pounds so it’s sixteen pounds altogether, sorry for not making it clear. I hope you can finish your powder soon! Thank you, I hope you have a great rest of the year xx

  6. I love hearing about people’s goals for the year! You’ve done so well considering we’re only halfway through! Cooking is totally time management! This is something that I only recently figured out myself. I’ve been really into making sushi lately. It’s really easy but anything I complete in the kitchen is an achievement for me!

    • Thank you, that means a lot! It really is, getting everything ready at the same time can be so difficult. Oooh that sounds great! Yes, it sounds like you’re doing well! Everyone starts somewhere xx

  7. I had lots of goals to use up products but its been hard during lockdown! And i was really happy with my weight at the start of the year but coming out of lockdown is going to be my goal to get back to a weight i feel happy at! Lovely idea for a post!

    • Yeah lockdown has made using products extremely difficult. Good luck with it, I’m sure you’ll smash it. Thank you, and I am so glad you think so xx

    • Thank you so much! Yes, I think thats the same for me, lockdown has definitely got me into a good routine. I’m glad it’s going well for you too xx

  8. So proud of you for following your goals. I’ve never had trouble achieving my set career goals. But when it comes to lifestyle changes, it’s a different story. This was inspiring. Thank you x

    • Thank you so much, I appreciate it a lot! It can be so hard to make lifestyle changes can’t it? I’m positive you can do it though, good luck xx

  9. Congrats on losing so much weight! I can imagine how good you feel! I went through a similar situation last year, and just feel so much better about myself. Girrlllll, I can relate so much to finishing makeup. When the year started I said I was going to limit my purchases and use up what I have. While I have definitely bought less, I have also not used up much product (other than skincare)! Hope you keep getting closer to hitting your goals as the year progresses 🙂 x

    • Thank you so much! It’s such a good feeling that’s for sure. It really helps doesn’t it?! The lockdown has definitely made it to hard to use products hasn’t it? At least you limited new purchases haha!Thank you so much, I hope the rest of the year is kind to you too xx

  10. It’s a little sobering that we’re halfway through the year! I need to revisit my goals, too. Nice that you’re on track with yours. Thanks for sharing them.

  11. Well done on losing weight! I’m also learning how to cook more that I wouldn’t usually choose to cook. It’s a lot of fun! Good luck for the rest of the year on your goals x


  12. It’s a big thing for anyone to get into the right mindset to try to lose weight. I myself am trying to do just that. I’ve been trying to cut back on chocolate and fizzy drinks, crisps etc Eat more fruit and vegetable and salads, I do love salads. I am definitely eating more fruit, I’ve started to plan my meals and take my own lunch to work, I find that helps, for a start. Definitely saves money. I am also loving the body milks you have advertised. I love almond, might have to treat myself to some of that. Loved your post x

  13. You’re doing great so far! Keep it up! I set some 2020 goals – I’ve already ticked a few of them off my list. But I have to re-evaluate because some of them sadly can’t happen now due to covid!

  14. Well done on your goals so far lovely! It looks like you’re doing great. I can definitely relate with needing to cut back on the fizzy drinks! I do drink more water and juice than I used to but I’m still always reaching for a can of pop, it’s so hard to cut it out! xx
