My Goals For 2018!

Hey everyone!

Well it’s the last post of 2017 on Black Tulip Beauty and I thought I’d leave it as a sort of prep-for-the-new-year post. I recently posted a Christmassy glitter look that you can read here too before the season ends. I’m not setting any solid ‘resolutions’ as such as my health is a bit unpredictable right now and knowing me I would punish myself for not completing them. I think it is important to set yourself at least some goals though just to keep you motivated. These are just a few things I would really like to do at some point or over a period of time in the next 12 months…

Up My Body Confidence

This is never something i’ve been great with but although this is mainly a beauty blog, I do have quite a passion for fashion and styling clothes too. I’d describe my style as sort of gothic chique and I’d really love to start putting some fashion posts up on here and collaborate with some clothing brands. The first step towards that would be to find ways to love my body more as otherwise I’d just hate all the photos and wouldn’t want to post them!

Finish My Tattoo Sleeve

It’s been 2 and a half years since I started my sleeve and I am SO desperate to get it finished. I didn’t mean for it to take so long but lack of money, lack of time, illness and medication has got in the way. One of my main goals is to have it finished by my birthday in May or if not then, the end of 2018 for sure!

Gain More Knowledge & Make Some Sort Of Business Plan

Since my early teens I have been determined to set up my own business and with all the great feedback and attention I’ve received since starting up this blog, It’s made me realise that I CAN do it. I finally know what kind of business I want and what my main passion is and I am so excited to start the journey, whenever it may be!

Get Back Into Singing

In all honesty, I’ve lost quite a lot of my confidence in performing due to having not done it for such a long time. I really miss singing for people and the buzz it gives you pleasing a crowd! I’m currently working on a project with some guys called Andrew and Kyran otherwise known as “Incline and Despatch” which we are going to start recording for in the new year. I’m hoping this will give me the kick of confidence I need to start putting myself out there as a vocalist again. I’ve also decided I’m going to start uploading videos on YouTube soon too so you can subscribe here if you like whilst waiting for my first upload!

Meet Up With More Friends

This year has taught me an incredible lesson about who really cares about me and who is only there when it’s convenient for them. Some very unexpected people have been super lovely and I am determined to make more time for those in the upcoming year. I also would love to meet all the girls from the blogger babes chat as they’ve been such fabulous people to become friends with this year!

So there you have it, a little self-improvement, a little career shaping and a little relationship building. I’ve already got a few things I’m really looking forward to next year too as It’s always important to give yourself stepping stones, especially to get through depressing January! What are your goals or resolutions for the year to come? And Happy New Year to all for when the clock strikes midnight!

’Til Next Time,
BTB Xx

    I think setting loose goals instead of specific resolutions is the way to go. One of my new years resolutions last year was to read a specific number of books each month but then some unexpected things happened which meant I didn’t read anything for a few months and it ended up making me feel so guilty. Trying to be more body confident is definitely going to be on my list for next year too, I think it’s such an important thing to focus on. Good luck with everything for 2018!

    1. blacktulipbeauty says:

      Definitely! It’s easier not to fall off the wagon then and it’s the worst when you make yourself feel guilty :/ Good luck with your goals girl, sure you’ll smash them 🙂 X

  9. Chantal says:

    Tbh I’m not really a fan of new years resolutions or new years goals I want to achieve. But I do have to agree with some of the goals you have! E.g. I love singing too, and I haven’t done that really for over a year now :\

    PS: love your tattoo *.*

    1. blacktulipbeauty says:

      They’re just plans really for what I plan to do with my life over the coming months 🙂 singing is such a good way to release negative energy! Thank you 🙂 X

    Happy New Year lovely! I just subscribed to your YT channel, I can’t wait to see your first video! I love singing too and actually started singing lessons this year. I’ve gained so much confidence and although I’ve never sung in front of an audience I’m finally able to sing when my family is around.
    Your tattoo looks amazing! I think I might get my first one this year 🙂 x

I’ve been wanting more for ages, but it’s difficult when you don’t just ‘have’ spare money, and actually have to save for them! 😩 I really hope your confidence improves, because girl, you are beautiful?! 😍 Here’s to a wonderful 2018! 🖤
