September Goals

September Goals

September is here! It’s the first of the month, and what I class as autumn. This season is my favourite time of year, so here are some goals to get me started!


Earn more freelance jobs – I freelance in photography and journalism, and absolutely love it. The idea of having more odd jobs and earning extra coins while doing what I love sounds like a dream!

Gain more customers – I currently work for my mum’s charity, Clothing
Solutions for Disabled
People. We make clothes for disabled people, and although only small, it would be wonderful to have some new clients!


Movie nights! – I literally want to have movie nights every weekend with my best friends. We’re such a cuddly bunch, it would be so much fun!

Hang out with my blogger pals – I have a few internet friends, many who are bloggers, and it would be absolutely brilliant to host a blogger brunch in the city centre of Leeds.


Run a full circuit without stopping – I recent quit the gym because it’s too awkward to get to. Since then I’ve been running, and often have to take breaks as I’m not at the peak of physical health. I’m determined to run the full route without stopping!

Become a yoga expert – In June, I fell in love with yoga and it’s easily one of my favourite ways to work out. I have more energy after each class, and will soon be showing off my poses on Anika May! 


Head to a festival/gala – It would be simply fantastic to be able to visit a festival soon! There’s Bingley Music Live, a music festival held right in my hometown, and I’ve been once, but I certainly need to go again!

Drive somewhere new – Now that I’m a confident driver, I 100% want to take a long drive somewhere. It’s my goal to be able to jump in my car, bump to some tunes and just go!


Have money – A very obvious goal. I do have some money (obviously), but not much spare once those bills suck the life out of my current account. I’d like to be working my way towards earning money doing what I love!

Buy a new iPhone – I love my iPhone 7, it works brilliantly and always has my back. However, I have my eye on the 7+. I definitely don’t want the 8, not with a starting price of £1,000! The 7+ would be perfect for me and for photography on the go!


Keep up with my positive journal – I have a book, a very special book that I use to note down all the good things in life. It helps keep me positive and manage the anxieties of life. Now all I need to do is keep up with it!

Improve my skills – There are so many areas I want to learn new skills in. HTML, Photoshop, video editing, journalism, DSLR techniques and so on and so on. The list is endless, and autumn is the perfect time to get started!


  • Happy new month Anika. These are all great goals, I hope you’re able to achieve them all this month 🙂
    One of my goals this month is to improve my skills too! xx

    • Thanks so much! Hope you achieve yours too! 🙂 xo

  • I hope you able to accomplish all these goals Anika!! I am thinking of upgrading to the iphone 7 plus as well – but have to wait till the end of the year. I agree I won’t be getting the latest Iphone the prices are insane and who the hell would pay that much money its a waste to be honest, I know they launching the 7s variants so wonder what they will cost if too pricey I will stick to Iphone 7plus

    • Yeah I’m having the wait but the quality is amazing! I’ve been obsessing over the portrait mode feature. Apparently, they’re releasing the iPhone 8 this or next month, so hopefully that means the price of the others will drop – fingers crossed! xo

  • Thank you so much! xo

    Happy new month!! These are great goals and I wish you achieve all. I also had to quit my gym membership because I wasn’t visiting the gym as expected. I bought a few equipment and now have a mini home gym lol. I believe I’m now more active and I can exercise whenever I want to without restrictions. All the best!

    • That’s a great idea! Working out at home is so much more comfortable too, no waiting for machines! xo

  • Wishing you all the best with your freelance work – earning while doing what you love is the dream, right?! Driving somewhere far away and new, with music as company sounds like a fabulous goal 🙂

    Movie nights sound great! I really like your goals, they’ve ended up inspiring me as well! I haven’t done much with freelancing lately and really need to get ahead of that. I wish you all the best with your goals Anika! xx

    Sending light & love your way,

    • That’s great! Wishing you the best with freelance work, Diana! xo

  • My partner wants movie nights too! He wanted to aim for once a week, but he’s still in university so it’s proven to be quite hard for him haha. I want to get into yoga – I’m a weightlifter so I get really tight and sore, and I feel like yoga would help with that.

    I love that your goals also involve self care and fun, it’s not always about doing super productive things!

    • I bet yoga would be really good yeah, I heard it builds strength in new places too 🙂
      Totally agree, thanks for reading, Becky! xo
