I love a good list of goals – check out my 101 in 1001 challenge post if you haven’t already! – and what better place to share said goals than with you guys? And girls. And mice. I know, I know – it’s nearly June. Let’s say these are my halfway-through-the-year blogging goals. Can you relate to any of these? Let’s go! Hit 2000 followers on my blog Instagram (which, by the way, is my only Instagram because my ‘real’ life consists solely of Sims 4, hoovering and feeding my zoo). It’s @littlebudget if you want to help me out……

I love a good challenge. I’m forever pinning those 30-day squat challenges to my designated 30-day-challenge board and promising myself that I’ll start them… on Monday. Or at the start of the month. Or the end of the month. Spoiler alert – I still haven’t done a 30-day squat challenge. I’m not sure I’d fit into my leggings if my behind got any bigger.

FAVOURITE CHARACTER I’m going to have to say Belle! I’ve always loved her because of her passion for reading and her kind heart. Plus she’s so flippin’ beautiful,…

I love being creative. Unfortunately my actual creative skills are reminiscent of a toddler with a felt pen – dangerous and unpredictable, and will generally colour outside the lines by accident. Yep, I’m not the best drawer, colourer-inner (that’s definitely a word) or designer in the world but there are some people who are. They’re not me, just to clarify. Again. I’ve been ordering from some amazing small businesses lately – and please note, when I say small business I mean absolutely no disrespect whatsoever: the hustle is real for these girls and they are most definitely smashing it! Now,…

Hello, hi, it’s me, I’m actually writing a blog post for the first time in two months! I’ve been a busy lil bee for the majority of 2017; settling into and decorating my new house (painting walls takes AGES and I’m frightened of stepladders so you can imagine how well that’s going), working on my dissertation (who am I actually kidding, it’s due in 20 days and I have 800 words currently, smashing it) and pretending to be a giant snake in my 2-year-old drama classes (a game I instantly regretted when they decided I was “King Snek” and piled…
