2018 Hopes & Dreams

2018 Hopes and Dreams 1


Hello....it's me. Yep I'm back, again; along with all the other bloggers that are trying to get back on the blogging bandwagon now it's a new year. 

And what better way to kick start my blog again then sharing some of my hopes and dreams for 2018. 

2018 Hopes and Dreams 2


BLOG MORE CONSISTENTLY
Last year my blog took a back seat; this year I just want it to be consistent. I'm not setting myself a schedule because I found that I fell out of love with writing when I was forced to. So I just want to pick up the laptop and type when I feel the words needing to come out with no nagging thoughts that I'm going to slip out of the blog loop because I didn't post every Monday. But with that I don't want to do what I did last year and write a grand total of 4 blog posts! So I will be planning out content in my notebook and reading other blogs to keep my content fresh and churning out.

UP MY PHOTOGRAPHY GAME
Instagram is my favourite platform; despite the fact that the developers never listen to what we actually want it to do. I love how quick it is to share a snapshot of your life and interact with other people. With that I want to up my photography; I want to become best pals with the manual settings as well as more with other blogger photographers to get some great out and about shots for the gram. 

RE BRAND LOLA'S LITTLE WONDERS
I think part of the reason I let the blog fall to the wayside is because I feel like I've actually outgrown Lola's Little Wonders and think after nearly 5 years of blogging it's time to send it to Primary School. So a re brand and refresh is something that I've actually started working on; a name has been decided as well as a theme and now I'm just waiting for payday to hit to purchase a few things and we will be relaunching.

GROW MAKE UP BY LAUREL
Towards the end of last year I started my own freelance make up artist business; just a little something to keep me busy as well as use up all that make up I buy. It's taken off quite well and I've had bookings nearly every weekend bar one since starting in October. This year I would love to see my little business grow even more; to be fully booked every weekend as well as perhaps get a few wedding bookings in the diary.

DO MORE
Now this sounds vague, just writing do more; but I mean do more in a lot of aspects. Do more with my free time; be that writing on here, go exploring in London, read a book. Do more saving of my money; cause last year I was a big pile of shit at it. Do more with my friends; like hanging out or planning day trips and holidays. Just basically do more!

MAKE MY 30TH YEAR THE YEAR OF ME
I've had a few people already say to me that this year is my year and do you know what I actually believe it! I want to make it my year! I turn 30 in seven months and want to look back and think fuck me did I have a good time in my 30th year on earth. I want to enjoy each day as it comes as well as say yes to things that would generally scare me. I know I'm a walking talking cliche but sometimes they are the best!

2018 Hopes and Dreams 4


I'm really hoping to make all these hopes and dreams a reality; I haven't called them goals as generally I end up not reaching them a beating myself up about it. Hopes and dreams sounds more aspiring to me and means if I reach them, I actually reached my dreams!

Let me know if you've got any tips for keeping your dreams on track or what your hopes & dreams are for 2018.
