Wishes, Goals & Ambitions for Twenty Five.

In less than two weeks I will be reaching my 25th birthday and officially entering the 'mid-twenties' zone. As scary as that thought may be to me (with a possibility of having a quarter life crisis), I am looking forward to what my mid-twenties will bring. I am also looking forward to my birthday itself as I will be spending it with the people I love and waking up to breakfast in London. SO, I thought I would do a round up of the things I would love for my 25th year including gifts, goals and ambitions. I really hope you enjoy!

A New Scent
I would love to add a hint of luxury and sophistication to my life with the Clive Christian, perfume gift set for her*. I am a big fan of The Royals and love that the packaging reflects Queen Victoria's Crown as well as the scents themselves smelling absolutely amazing.

I'd love to get my hands on the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow palette as I am in search of the perfect contour and highlight combination. I discovered Charlotte Tilbury last year and have been lusting over the brand ever since.

I would also like to get my hands on the new Urban Decay Petite Heat Palette as it is a great size and includes some lovely shades to take on our summer holiday in June. I have always loved the Urban Decay eye shadow palettes as they last such a long time.

I have been wearing a lot of shirts/blouses recently as they are great for work and are really flattering on so I would really like the above JDY star print shirt. They are great with either a pair of jeans for a casual day look or a high-waisted skirt for work/night.

I don't have many flat shoes and find myself always wearing the same ones so I would like these NewLook Wide Fit Cream Crochet Espadrilles. They'd be perfect for sunshine-y days and they are so pretty.

I am candle OBSESSED as my boyfriend would tell you, so I would really love to add some more luxurious scents to my collection. The latest one I have my eye on is the Jo Malone Lavender and Lovage scented candle.
| Goals & Ambitions | 

I have a few goals for this year which I would love to be able to conquer in terms of both my personal life and my life online. I have taken some huge steps over the last year which have encouraged me to go after what I really want so I hope to continue this! 

1. Stick to a blog and YouTube schedule and outline what this will be. I am thinking Wednesdays and Sundays for YouTube and maybe twice a week on the blog - Mondays and Fridays. (Still in the process of outlining this!) 

2. Attend more blogging events! I have finally stepped out of my comfort zone recently and gone to an event so I am hoping to go to lots more, network with brands/PR's and make friends with other bloggers. 

3. I would love to move house within the next year which means save, save, save!

4. I really want to explore the UK a lot more so I hope to take Pepper (our long-haired dachshund pup) away for some UK mini breaks on a budget. I would love to explore Scotland, The Lake District and so many more places I know Pep would love! 

Do you set yourself birthday goals like me? What would be on your wish list? 

Love Amber xx

  1. I've never heard of the Clive Christian perfume set. I love that it reflects the Royals! I love that you are pushing yourself to go to more events. There's so many exciting opportunities out there! Love it XOX
