CREATING MY VISION BOARD FOR 2020– ITS NEVER TOO LATE

Hey, loves I hope you’re well! First things first, please make sure that you are staying safe at home and keeping it clean. About a month ago I decided to create my mood/vision board. This is something I’ve been meaning to do since the beginning of the year but never got the time to. I had printed all the pictures and had a clear idea of what I wanted to do but I never got to mapping it out and sticking everything. Me being Journey, I thought it is never too late to create your mood/Vision board hence today I will be sharing with you all my visions for the year 2020.

2018 NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS.

Hey gorgeous how are you doing?! Before anything else I would love to wish you a happy new year and wish you all the best in everything you do. 2017 like any other year had its up and downs but for me 2017 had more downs than there was ups that I feel like I’m happy to be in 2018! Today I would like us to talk about new year resolutions and what we are going to achieve in the new year.

Self love 
I preach so much about self love and self appreciation but I still think it’s not enough. I need to be in a year where I can literally do anything with my body  and not be judged for it and without me thinking twice about my decision. I need to be at a point where I can love myself unconditionally and be content with the person that I am.

Recognition
People are sleeping on your girl too much and it’s time we woke up! This year I would love to do more collaborations with different creative people, make new friendships as well as get more recognition from companies so that I can start pushing a word. This 2018 I would like to enter into a new chapter in terms of my influence and broaden my voice.

Experience things.
I’m mostly known for shying away from doing things because I’m always pulling out and feeling scared but this year I really wanna push my limits and try out new things. I would like to go to different places, try different types of food and make memories.

Make relationships. 
Now if you know me I hardly ever entertain any sort of relationship whatsoever ending in me being all alone and not doing anything. Which there’s nothing wrong with but for 2018 I’d really love to meet new people and create all sorts of different bonds and just be a free person. I know people like taking advantage and that I’m not going to always make the right bond but this year I’m really just going to let God protect me in all the things that I do.

Exercise.

I used to be a workout junkie and would never go through a week without excising more than 4 times a week but that sort of fell out last year when I was working in retail and didn’t have enough time so this year I would really love to get back into routine and start excising again.

Do significant things
Last but not least for 2018 I wanna do things that have significance. What I mean is I wanna do significant things that I can see and that make a difference in y life. I wanna start helping out my family more and just enhancing our quality of life.

Yes guys so those are my goals for 2018 and hopefully by God’s grace I am going to achieve them. I am going to be working much harder this year and focusing on the things that mean the most to me like my creative life..What are your goals for 2018? Please leave them down in the comments section below and lets start up a conversation.

SAVE MONEY IN STYLE.

Hey guys what is up?! First of all HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I wish you all the best for 2017 and let this year be the year for success. My life has literally changed around in like a day. I’ve passed my matric year with a high pass, I’ve found a job and I’m currently trying to act like an adult.

I’ve recently been introduced to a company called Earnest which is a group of people of many expertise who’s goal is make credit more accessible by reducing the costs and barriers faced by millions of financially responsible people.They asked me to share with you a money saving guide along with to highlight the importance of understanding your financials! We did just start a new year so I thought this would be amazing for setting goals and trying out new things.

I feel like 2017 is going to be LIT (yes, I used that word) and in order for us to get everything out of it we need to keep our financials in check.

Money makes the world go round so it is very important that you know where your money goes and what you do with it. Understanding your money means saving more and using your money wisely. Because if you know your financials then you know what to avoid, what not to do and how to use your money to the best of you.

Also, if you know your financials then it’s easier for you to set goals and see where your money goes. And instead of trying to buy the whole world, you know what you can afford, why its best not to spend on something and what the bigger goal is.

When Earnest approached me they asked me to set 4 goals for 4 quarters of the year and here’s what I came up with…
1. To have money saved up for the end of year(Christmas)
2. To have money to pay for my part time studies.
3. To have an aside budget  each month that I can splurge on other things like makeup and fashion.
4. To have an aside budget for emergencies.

Earnest then went out to make me some cards to help guide all the goals. And here they are.

Basically all these cards have my goals and things that I could cut down on to save better for the goals and to make sure I achieve those goals. They are also very nice because they do send them individually and you could print them and for each quarter put them up somewhere where you could see them everyday.

Reason for me showing you guys this is because I want this year to be a year where we can all look back and say “Yah this was the year!” and not only to say this but to also have the proof in our bank accounts to show for it.

Anyway thank you so much for reading and please do go and check out Earnest’s website because they’ve got a whole lot of information on many aspects of that can affect your finances, like personal and student loans, and tips. If you check them out, I think it will help you so much for any financial goals that you have plus you can even refinance your sudent loans there to save thousands off your debt.
