Yay for May!
Hello my lovelies! I don't know about all of you, but I actually can't get my head around the fact that we're nearly at that halfway point through the year - it feels like just yesterday I was kneedeep in shots, celebrating the impending New Year and then I blinked and it's May, crazy right? Although don't get me wrong, I'm super psyched for those beautifully mild days where a cardigan is delightfully unnecessary and where every food order at an outdoor cafe comes with a crisp Kopparberg.
And I'm so thrilled that already you can see tiny hints of summer budding - quite literally as well! Every journey to work of mine consists of a quaint 25 minute walk along a lovely neighbourhood, where only recently I've began to notice a bunch of beautiful cherry blossom in bloom, lined along the pathway entrances of most of the houses. Something else I actually adore about May is the quite bipolar weather. I love that there'll be a few days of absolutely blissful weather and then there'll be an odd spout of rain - I relish in this inconsistency because it feels like the weather's making that final transition out of winter and finally stepping into summer mode. Additionally, I love that I'm seeing more and more people in the streets bringing their dogs out for walks, lately I've been meeting so many lovely owners and of course, getting smothered with affection by their doggies!
Of course, the most obvious thing that really gets people excited about May is that it's the first signal of summer, with long afternoons spent lazing around and a copious amount of trips to the beach, with ice cream in hand of course! So, with May in mind, I've conceived a few goals which I wish to accomplish for this month...
Buy a bright and colourful floral head piece: I've been lusting after one for quite some time now, but didn't really see it appropriate to be wearing in rainy weather.
Get into a good blogging routine: Since I started this little mini project of mine, the posts have been quite erratic as I only post when I can. It's not for lack of inspiration, it's honestly because I'm always just so busy! So, my major May goal is to post twice a week; Monday and Friday if possible as those are my two days free from work!
Spend more time channelling my creativity: This not only goes for my design work, but also for mini blog projects. I really want to feature some more DIYs on the blog, as my rainbow clips tutorial got such a brilliant reaction from readers :)
Buy some new cacti plants to brighten up the place: Admittedly, I've never been one to keep flowers as they just deteriorate so quickly! I already own some cute cactuses but would love to have the place swarming with them as they're so pretty and such low maintenance too!
Make a dietary change: Okay, so everyone has their weaknesses, right? Superman had kryptonite, King Kong's was a beautiful woman and mine is chocolate. Oh, and I'm also going to ATTEMPT switching tea for green tea, a near impossible task, I know!
Spend less time sleeping, more time doing: Okay, so scratch that, I apparently have TWO fatal flaws, and the other is definitely my habitual evening nap. I've actually been napping for as long as I can remember, it just keeps you refreshed, ya'know? But I realise now, especially when the evenings are elongating with more promises in store, I do want to stay awake and use my time productively!
Begin a new television series: I'm actually STILL in mourning over the concluding of Breaking Bad, so I definitely think it's long overdue that I find a new series to watch, suggestions anyone?
What're your hopes and goals for May?
