Small, happy and girl crushing.

I haven't done this in ages but it's easily time for another girl crush post. This time it's the lovely, beautiful Jenna Dewan-Tatum. I would not let Channing Tatum go for anyone less worthy!

In case you needed anymore convincing check her out at this year's Golden Globrs! She looks like the sparkly night sky (heart eyes emoji)

Singing off now, but first, please tell me: who are your girl crushes?! 

Happy Wednesday!


Small, happy and currently...

Well hello there one and all, it's the weekend! I have basically given myself today off and I am currently on my second movie of the day (Crazy, Stupid love featuring the gift from heaven that is Ryan Gosling) and it made me want to write another 'currently' post because I love them and love reading other people's so if you do these please share yours! 

Booking: flights to New York! We found the most incredible deal on sta travel last night (£364 RETURN!) and decided to get our summer American adventure started! We aren't quite sure of our route yet but we're hoping to tick off some new places and that I can revisit the happiest place on earth while I'm at it!!

Reading: Mindy Kaling's Why not me? I just love her writing style and she really makes me laugh out loud. I just hear her voice as I'm reading and her second collection of essays is just as good as the first! 

Cooking: Everything with a spiralizer, still obsessed!

Watching: Parks and Rec! Now the boyfriend is loving it too, it's so nice to share the fun with someone.

Planning: lots of catch ups with people, this is one resolution that's going pretty wel! :)

Feeling: this cold snap! Either snow enough so that we get a snow day or don't snow at all, simple really Mother Nature.

Hoping: that Leo finally gets his Oscar! I haven't seen The Revenant yet but I think he deserves it purely for contribution to cinema! (Yes, I realise that sadly it does not work like this)

Feeling: like time is already flying by, this just seems to be the theme of my mid 20s so I might as well just enjoy it!

How are you all doing? Anything you're watching or reading that you want to share? 

Happy Sunday!


Small and Happy's New Year Goals (let's do this!)

Hello there! Happy new year and all that jazz! I am slightly late to the blogging new year's party and no that is not because I have been nursing the world's biggest hangover. In actual fact my NYE was spent reading with my boyfriend, watching big fat quiz and desperately trying to stay up!  This picture therefore is from early Christmas morning when I was full of excited Christmas beans!

But don't be thinking that my lack of energy on new year's pertains to how I feel about 2016, no way Jose! I am extremely excited for what this new year will bring.  Mostly because I see it as a time to make to do lists, goals, resolutions and all those good things.  I am lucky because I am quite a goal oriented, driven person anyway so I love to make goals and usually I achieve them. Now I'm not showing off when I say that (I'm really not!) I literally feel that I mostly achieve goals because I follow the SMART template.  Not heard of this?  Well, carry on really my lovelies (it blew my mind!)

If you've made 2016 goals (resolutions, dreams whatever you like to call them) ask yourself, are they?

Specific (one gym class a week)
Measurable (run 5 miles - I don't know if that's achievable/too easy I am the Jon Snow of running!)
Achievable (get Kim Kardashian's butt with no work (cough or surgery) not so much)
Results focused (eat better, not so clear, have a portion of veg in each meal, easier to see results!)
Time bound (write four poems too vague, write four poems by the end of June gives you something to work towards)

A lot of people have heard these before but I thought I'd share them in case you're needing a bit of guidance making goals for yourself that you feel you can stick to!

So, as I'm sure you're all desperate to know here are some of my goals for this 2016!

* Visit one new country.
* Read 15 books by the end of the year.
*Volunteer for at least one organisation.
*Do an online course in either literature or psychology.
*Go to the cinema or theatre once a month.
*Cook one new recipe a month.
*Two exercise related activities a month.
*Call/facetime/text a friend every week.

Now I feel good about all of these because I don't think anything of them are unattainable, if anything I will do better in some which will make me feel great!  I'm not saying set the bar low but I've set the bar at the minimum I would be happy with in each category and that's what I'll push myself towards.  Anything extra is a mega bonus!

The most important thing with goals is always YOU ARE AMAZING AS YOU ARE.  Any extra tweaks you want to make or extra things you want to do just add to the wonderful person you already are.  That's how I see the new year, a time to reflect on all the awesome stuff I already do and think about how I could improve on my fantabulous self.  Love yourself and don't berate yourself for not always hitting those goals.  Life is a marathon not a sprint and we can grow all the time no matter what time of year it is :)

Do you use the SMART method when you make goals?  Do you have any resolutions?  Please share!

Happy Sunday,
