Saving For The Future. (Mini Personal Achievement!)

Hello my lovelies. How have you guys been this crazy week? Its went by really fast for me. One day it was the end of the weekend, now it’s my weekend again. This is gonna be a some what chatty post today.

Welp lets jump right into it before I squeal with excitment. (Before I go any futher, Im not bragging in the slightest kay.) This year me and the other half made the agreement that we are going to save for our own house. We are currently renting and lets be honest, while the area is nice its not a place we want to be long term. Or if we plan on expanding our family.

So I have had problems with saving for years. (Money grabbing parents who where not ready for 3 extra mouths to feed and guilt tripped the cash outta us.) But I finally did something I wanted to do for ages. Since I was 18. Drum roll please…………

I FINALLY SAVED £1000!!!!!!

Eeek. After months of on/off work. Being worried sick and feeling completely useless I finally reached a milestone that I had wanted for just under 8 years. And it feels amazing. 😄

I may be a little tighter fisted with my cash now, and even questioning if I need things when I’m shopping or out and about. We are even home cooking meals for work which is amazing for the both of us. I’m just so happy and proud of myself. Very pleased to see that all the hard work that I’m putting in is finally amounting to something.

And I wanted to share this excitment with you guys.

Until next time my lovelies.


Some Tips on Valuing Yourself

We’ve all been there where we under value ourselves. Where we beat ourself up over something or think less of ourselves. We all do it. And its just not healthy for us. So I’m recommending some tips, that have worked for me in realising my personal value. 

  • Instead of seeing something as failure see it as a lesson. A learning curve, where you tried something and even though it didn’t work out the first time you learned something new through the experience. It could be a new food, or something like dancing.
  • Stop making excuses for people who aren’t worth it. These people will keep letting you down if its a regular thing. Your time is scared, use it wisely. 
  • Say no, mean no and stand by that no. Don’t cave under the pressure from anyone. Doesn’t matter if it’s family, friends etc. Stick to your guns or that gut feeling. You came to that desicion and have that feeling for a reason!! 
  • Second best ain’t happening! Don’t allow yourself to be treated as second best. Your the Queen (or King) of your life not a dessert or a toy to be played with. 
  • Relaise that YOU are the proirity of your life. You may have kids, or someone who relies on you and they are important too but again so are you. Plus your their role model. If they see you being confident, humble and looking after yourself they will do they same. 
  • And finally the last one and the most important. Be the CEO of your life. You have the power to promote, demote or fire anyone in your life. Use it. Understand your value and show people they can not undervalue you. 
  • Take pride in your interests and passions. Not everyone will like them but these hobbies make you happy. Share them with others and even join groups of like minded people. Don’t allow pigeons to laugh at your mind. 

I hope these little tips help or even solidify the feeling of your personal value. If anyone has anymore tips don’t be afraid to leave them in the comments. Your words of wisdom are always welcome. 

Until next time my lovelies. 


My Goals for 2017. 

Well it’s nearly the end of 2016, and I’ll be honest I haven’t been the best at smashing any goals I’ve set. I would love to say so much was happening and I got distracted (in a way I did!!) But I’d also be lying. I became lazy and fell outta love with many a thing. Although I did hit some targets. 
I don’t do resolutions. It makes things sound so final. But I do love setting goals and targets. They help in so many ways. And I have a few set for next year that I do intend too keep. Here are a few:

Blog Growth

I’d love to see my blog grow next year however I know that totally depends on the content I write and mainally if you, my lovely readers enjoy what I write. I do have a number in mind but this blog will only grow naturally, with a great deal of dedication and a ton of grinding. (Maybe develop on my photography, writing and a little coding!) I also want Seasonal-Rose to become a little more fashion based but I have a feeling that things will change a great deal. Watch this space!!

Esty – Start up the Shop/Buisness

Next year is when I hope to start building up on the dream. A small shop. It’s something I’ve wanted for a while and I plan on making it happen. From embroidery, upholstery, custom pieces to little bits like badges or pins. Blankets, throws, cushions and even clothes. I am hoping to get it up and running soon. I will be using the blog to show case a great deal of my work along with instagram. Hope too see you there. 


Sight-seeing. Growing my knowlegde base. I really want to travel more and hope to get my passport soon to allow this to happen on a greater scale. I love other cultures, languages and fashion. Seeing it in person will be a better experience. Milan, New York, LA, Tokyo, Hong Kong…….so many more!!!


This is a big one!! There are so many things that I would love to have…….car, our own house, a camera etc but I’m hoping to build upon my fiances next year in a way that will continue to grow and help towards a more secure future for myself.  


This is a tricky one. While I want to stay at college and progress futher into my education. I’ve noticed that I won’t learn certain things like corset making, hand stiching to name a few while at college. So I’m currently torn for this one. But either way I will continue to learn, I’m far to stubborn to give up. Whether I decide to go the self taught root or not remains to be seen. But I’m currently working on a few projects for Christmas.

These are only a few of the goals I wish to meet. All I can really say is that I don’t want to be in the same place I am now, this time next year. 

Do you have any goals for next year that you want to share?? How do you hope to achieve them?

Until next time lovelies.
