#ClaireNotes – January 2017

Happy New Year, beautiful people! Hope you spent it the way your heart desired, just like myself.

As part of a new series inspired by Marzia, I will be writing down three things I want to do each month, and talk about achieving them (… or maybe not achieving them?), so let’s get started! I wrote all the notes on this diary from boohoo.com. Small and really portable since it’s quite small.


1. Clean Closet [Achieved]

… Particularly where I put my bags.

This had to be done months ago, but juggling work, my surprisingly amazing relationship and my severe procrastination, had proven harder than I imagined. Unfortunately, my photos got mysteriously deleted from my phone, so I have no evidence of what the mess looked like… but imagine this: tote bags, crossbody bags, backpacks, handbags, shoulder bags, clutch bags, messenger bags, and so so much more – covering all my bed and the patch of ground between my bed and wardrobe.

2. €200 Budget [Achieved]

With just over EUR50 left, I cannot believe I achieved this goal! I had a doctors’ appointment which cost me almost EUR85 including meds, two driving lessons, photocopies for work, mobile+transport card top ups and more.

Will probably do more budget-related challenges… maybe a EUR50 Outfit Challenge in the future?…

3. Declutter work desk… [Achieved]

This was particularly hard to do since I became a hoarder when I was diagnosed with depression, and I had so many papers and little trinkets lying about… even behind my laptop! But truly, clear space = clear mind

… and vanity [Achieved too]

I’d been wanting to clean my vanity for ages and I finally found some time… on a Sunday night. Cold. Rainy. I cleaned the jewellery box my sister gave me for Christmas in 2015, placing my pins, earrings and rings in the new one she gave me last Christmas. I also sorted my make-up into skincare, lipsticks/lipglosses and others (eye make-up, nail stuff, etc.)

These were my January Notes. I hope you like this series. Let me know in the comment section below what you managed to achieve this month, and your goals for the next month, and I’ll see you in the next one!
