Our 2021 Review and Looking Forward to 2022!

Hi lovelies,

Not our usual blog this week! I am a big fan of goal setting, visualisations, and planning. The beginning of the New Year is the perfect time to think about what the last year has brought us and what we want to achieve in this next year. I always find it so uplifting to think about all the positives of the previous year especially when we are still living in a crazy world!

LOOKING BACK OVER 2021 

I had a number of goals for 2021 that I had previously shared with you.

One of the most important goals to me that I had set for Greener Beauty for 2021 was to reach 10,000 trees planted.

Well at the end of November we had smashed that with planting 10,020 trees. And now at the end of the year that number has increased again.

In October we moved to a new warehouse in Littlehampton sharing with our friends at Cactus Kitchen Gals and Cat Burglar Doughnuts. This has been such a great move for us, its fab to be surrounded by other vegan female led businesses although I wont lie, the constant smell of delicious sausage rolls, cakes and doughnuts is very tempting! We are currently thinking about how we can work together and launch a joint project so watch this space!

I had planned to launch a subscription box. This is very much still in progress and hopefully 2022 will be the year that we go live! If you want to sign up for a mailing list to the first to hear about this you can sign up here.

 

In addition to this I had planned to launch our second advent calendar. As you know the advent calendar went on sale earlier this year. With a very different look and feel to last year but still with the same strong ethics. I have been getting so much positive feedback on it with everyone loving all the items included in our 2021 plastic free advent. Just need to work out how I can make this even better again next year!

I think its important to look back at 2021 and see the positivity and feel gratitude for the good things that have happened. It doesn’t matter how big or small, whether its spending more time with your family or friends, being able to achieve a goal or project that you haven’t had time to work on in the past.

LOOKING FORWARD TO 2022

2022 brings with it hope and optimism for the future of what a new year will bring.

So what do you want from 2022?

As previously mentioned I am a big fan of spending time planning and goal setting and I am going to share with you some of our plans for the coming year.

2022 is the year that the Greener Beauty Subscription box will go live and I cant wait to share with you what it will be like!

Trees are hugely important to me and in 2022 I would love to be able to double the number of trees we have already planted. So my tree goal is for Greener Beauty to reach over 20,000 trees planted in 2022. Aim big is what I think!

I will be launching our Advent Calendar later in 2022. After all the amazing feedback from the last one I am already wondering how I can improve the next advent calendar. I have time to ponder this and don’t worry, our Advent will be back bigger and better for next year. Well maybe not bigger, it was already pretty big last year! So lets just go with better!

We have a few new brands launching early next year so watch this space and see what gorgeous new tried and tested products we will be bringing your way!

 

SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR A GREAT 2022

I am not the only one at Greener Beauty who loves planning and goal setting. So to share the love with you, we have created a free printable for you so you can think about what was good about 2021 and what goals you would like to achieve in 2022.

If you would like to do this click the link below to get the pdf and print it off. Find somewhere quiet where you can sit and do this without being disturbed. Alternatively, it can be good to do this with a friend or partner where you can share your goals and thoughts. For me this has led to some really lovely and fun chats looking back together (I would suggest filling in your own first and then chat together about what you have written).

We have really focused on the positives and what we have loved about 2021 and what we have achieved so go ahead and fill that in.

When it comes to thinking of your dream goal for 2022, think big! Visualise your perfect life. You literally can create your dream life for 2022 on paper. When it comes to the goal setting for the year, really think about what steps you will need to do to achieve that goal and break them down into as small steps as possible. For example, if you want to find a new job, the steps needed would be getting your CV up to date, putting your CV online and sending it to recruitment agents (or the dream company that you want to work for), maybe getting an appropriate outfit for the interview and interview prep. Try visualising the interview and getting on really well with the interviewer and getting that phone call or letter offering you the job. I would also add visualising working my dream job and maybe even my first day!

Over the course of the year, I will look at this frequently to remind me of my goals and to do a mental check in with how I am getting on with them. This is an important step to make sure you keep on track during the year.

“Today is your opportunity to build the tomorrow you want”

I hope that you have found that interesting, helpful and enjoyable to do! We are here if you have any questions as always.

Much love and here is to a fantastic 2022 where all our dreams come true.
