I'm really feeling the summer vibe after spending my afternoon in the sun enjoying a lovely barbecue. I really wish that this would last for the whole of the summer but come on, this is England we're talking about.
It's crazy because whenever I think of the summer I think of long holidays, beaches and eating delicious ice cream but now I realise that the summer holiday isn't actually that long with all of the work I have to do. I guess it's a good thing because I'd be really bored otherwise and would probably spend all of my money going out or something!
But no matter how hard I try I will always be spending a lot of money over the summer, so my goal is to save up! My other goal is to work on my portfolio, and another is... Y'know what, I'm just going to do a little list of them!
So I s'pose this is a post about my summer goals

1. Save money!
I want to save up as much as I can over the summer but I do know that either way I would be spending, so instead I'll be looking at cheaper options. I'm going to try and stop buying gal brand (sorry, my beloved MA*RS ;_;) and head out to local shops to see if they have something interesting. In my last post I had conjured a little wish list of "local" stores which you can see here. My main focus will be on accessories and I'm gonna' be meeting friends more often too!
2. Read More French
I actually have my dad's book of "Le Bumper Book of Franglais" where they basically take the p*ss out of the French language, but because most of the sentences are in French with just one or two English words thrown in for a comical effect, it should be good to keep me going! I have my little notebook where I wrote good vocab still so I hope to be using that too.

3. Work on My Portfolio
I need to work up on this because I'm hoping to apply for internships and work experience over the summer so hopefully I'll have something to present by the end of this month! I need to brush up on my old uni work and make them better if I can.
I actually have an art Tumblr and Blogger if you're interested! ^^
|What I'm currently working on|
I miss drawing so much and I'm currently working on a piece right now! I want to get it done by the end of next week and after that I would love to do some more.
5. Go to Season 4 of Supernatural
Although it would be nice to finish off all of the seasons, I think it'll be more likely for me to reach season 4 :P I'm so addictive now! Trying to watch at least 2 episodes a day so I can reach my goals *_*

6. Be Able to Wear High Heels
I am terrible at wearing heels so I want to be able to wear at least one pair for more than 2 hours. I know, I suck.

7. Reorganise My Room
I want my room to just look fabulous... I remember making a post aaaages ago about it, which you can view here.
8. Try Out (More) Gal Hairstyles
Like I said time and time again, I really want to try out different gal hairstyles because I feel like I'm lacking in the hair skills department. I'm just really crap at doing hair and never have the patience for it, especially because my hair just doesn't hold styles very well so I always think that it's pretty pointless. But I shall fight those thoughts this summer!
9. Stop Making Damn Lists
Eurgh I need to stop.
Guess that's all for today! So what are you goals for the summer, oh lovely reader of mine?
