May Goals

I saw Em For Marvelous posting about her monthly goals, and decided that I wanted to get on board. I set a lot of goals for myself, and am a to-do list FIEND, but I rarely share them with you all. I recently made a decision to start posting more of what I would like to read, rather than what I feel like I should be writing about. So, without further ado –

my May Goals
– Continue to add potted plants to our garden
– Maintain my exercise schedule after returning from Bali
– Start pre-emptive plans for a short holiday in July
– Deep clean the refridgerator
– Take unwanted books to the book exchange
– Help a dear friend plan her baby shower

I feel like this is a fairly achievable list. I’d love to hear some of your goals for May!

What I bought…

Hey guys guess what I bought more clothes that I literally do not have room for. I’m a monster. I usually like the ‘one item in, one item out’ method, but I’ve run out of things to get rid of when a new item comes in, so it’s time to slow down. I’m planning on embarking on a short no-buy after I return from Bali, but we’ll see how long it lasts.

I already own a grey oversized jumper that I wear a LOT during winter, so I thought I’d buy one in another colour to work into the mix. I just couldn’t resist this striped patch jumper from ASOS. I feel like the navy and stripes compliment each other really well. I bought the wrap-front blouse to wear with jeans and a blazer (my favourite cold weather out-to-dinner outfit). I bought the dress to wear in Bali. I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived because the floral detailing is actually bright FLURO, which I think will suit the tropical climate quite nicely. I bought the final two items because Shopbop were having their friends and family sale, and frankly I just couldn’t resist.
