BN Goals for 2021

Rate this Entry
I don’t like New Year’s resolutions, but I do like to set new goals and intentions for myself at the beginning of the year. This year, I want to accomplish three things.

1. I want to write at least one perfume review every day. Some days, I might not write any, so when I feel prolific, I will try to write more. The long term goal is to write enough reviews by this summer to get myself into the Basenotes Lounge, although I will probably end up paying for a BN Plus membership in the meantime.

2. I want to be more active outside of the SOTD thread, especially with Sync Fridays. I didn’t even realize I had a dedicated Sync Day, until today, and I realized that my BN focus is too narrow. It is hard for me to keep up with too many threads, but I think I can manage at least two.

3. I have a collection goal. I want to own 366 full bottles, or large decants (I count anything over 20mls as a full bottle), one for every day of the year, including leap years. After that, it will be one in/one out. I’d like to hit that number this year, I’d i can. But I might adopt Trilby Lark’s policy of buying only on solstices and equinoxes. And of course my boyfriend and I share quite a few bottles, so I can hedge a little there, if I find something I love, that I think he will wear.

And that is it. We’ll see how I do, when Jan 1 of next year arrives.
