2017 Fuck Budget

First things first, if you haven't read 'The Life-Changing Magic Of Not Giving A Fuck' go right now and buy it. Seriously. Head on over to Amazon, iBooks, Waterstones whatever you choose because you need this book in your life. 

This book is quite literally about not giving a fuck and writer, Sarah Knight, encourages readers to use the 'Not Sorry' method. Which is basically not giving a fuck about things you don't care about and not being sorry about it - for example, your old best friends shit new hair cut.

She also guides readers through creating a 'Fuck Budget' which is essentially building up a list of things that you will and will not give a fuck about meaning you only allocate those precious fucks to things you actually care about - like maybe calling your Grandma once a week.

After reading Rhianna and Vix's 2017 Fuck Budget, I knew I that I had to share mine too. It's so relieving once you've created one that I can assure you, once you start writing it'll be hard to stop. Lets go!


More fucks: Engagement. I really want to connect with other bloggers more and not just in my comments section. I will make the effort to comment on other blogs, join in Twitter chats and hopefully make some great friends along the way.

Less fucks: Driving. I passed my theory test over a year ago and the way I see it, if I had any intention of driving I would have done it already. I'd be paying for it myself and to be honest, there are more important things in the world.

Less fucks: Followers. There's so many blogs and videos out there that are all about how to grow followers. It's just not important. Engagement is so much more important and that's what I'm here for.

Less fucks: Plant based diets. It's such a craze at the moment to be in on plant based diets and follow every uneducated bloggers plans for 'staying healthy' and 'cleansing your body'. No time, no fucks.

More fucks: Getting fit. I want to take the time to actually work out and make sure I'm eating properly - and definitely not following a plant based diet lol. As I said in my Hello 2017 post, there's no goal weight in mind, I just want to be healthy. 


Less fucks: Whether others think I look good without make up on. Like, get over it, sometimes I don't wear make up and that's absolutely fine. 

More fucks: Taking the next step. Showing my ability, making the right decisions and moving on up to where I know I can be. 

Less fucks: Caring that I didn't go to university. I know that it wasn't the right thing for me to do but I have days when I think maybe I just should have got a degree just in case. 


Less fucks: Social breadcrumbing. Vix put this in the best way possible. Sending the odd catch up text to someone I have no intention of seeing is no longer on my to-do list. Saying 'Lets have drinks' to someone I definitely don't want to go for drinks with is no longer my priority.

More fucks: Quality time. I want to spend quality time with the friends I really care about. I want to go for drinks, dinner, go on holiday and make memories with the people that matter most.

Less fucks: People that don't like me. 


Less fucks: Relatives that make no time for me. I don't want to be the one always calling, texting, visiting. They know where I am too. If they want no part in my life, that is absolutely okay.

More fucks: The lovely family members that actually have time for me, that are always happy to see me and that I know I can count on just like they can with me. 

Less fucks: Whether some family members 'approve' of me. 

There you have it kids, my 2017 fuck budget. It feels like a weight has been lifted. Please if you choose to make your own Fuck Budget, link it below so I can read it because I absolutely love them!



  1. I absolutely love this. Like I literally have nothing else to say, I just love it. It's such a good way to put things in to perspective.

    1. Thank you Kayla! It literally helps so much writing everything down, I love it! X

  2. This is aweeeesome. Love the approach/perspective! I still have to get this book too. I can't imagine anyone who would think you had a bad attitude! I feel like we'd be great friends so maybe that means I have an attitude problem too haha 😛. Great post.

    1. Awh thank you! I love a 'to the point' approach. You definitely need this book in your life, it really does make you think of things differently especially when she writes about not getting annoyed about things you can't control - changed my life. We'd definitely be good friends, maybe people just couldn't handle us haha! Thank you! X
