Hi there everyone, you may or may not have noticed that last month I did not make a list of goals for June. This is mainly because I failed at competing everything I put on my list in my May Goals post. However, one month later I’m back and about 10000x more prepared and dedicated than I have been the past 4 weeks.
June has been a really lazy month for me in terms of blogging so this month’s goals are gonna be really blog focused. I’ve mentioned in previous posts that I work two jobs which results in me working about 50 hours a week, so I’m obviously not lazy in that aspect. Work is so draining as I waitress in both of my jobs so I am tired more or less all the time. Although I’m tired, grumpy and have hardly any free time I am thinking of the positives of working so much. In two months I move away to Glasgow for university and will have a decent amount saved up to support me and I will have money leftover to do some travelling with my boyfriend next summer.
One thing I realised last month was that a considerable amount of my products are not cruelty free and that I have been supporting brands that test on animals. When I first started a vegan diet I threw away all my make up that was tested on animals and over the years I have become lazy and negligent in terms of researching make-up brands. However, this is going to stop. I am going to finish the products that I have already purchased and began using but I refuse to give anymore money to brands testing on animals. The reason this has all come about is because Nars have begun to sell in China which means they are no longer a cruelty free brand. I don’t own any Nars products but I had some in an online basket ready to purchase, but didn’t once I found out they are now selling in China. So, no more laziness from me in terms of researching cosmetic brands so if any of you have any great cruelty free brands to suggest hit me up.
I mentioned that I failed most of the goals I set in May which is a bit embarrassing but this month I am determined to complete some. This is definitely gonna involve a lot more effort going into it on my part and setting some more realistic goals. I’m gonna be setting myself goals for every part of my life.

So there’s the summary of how “exciting” my June was, hopefully in July I will get up to some more fun things. I really, really hope this month I won’t totally flop at all my goals although I already feel like I’ve made some far too ambitious. Also, in these photos I am repping my new notebooks from Coconut Lane and I am IN LOVE. Anything to do with Blair Waldorf is amazing. Anyway, hope you all enjoyed reading this post. I would love to hear your thoughts on anything I’ve spoken about.
