The 31 day challenge

Starting something new for 2018 might be easier than you think. To prove it, we’ve teamed up with blogger, author and mum Giovanna Fletcher for the Barclaycard 31 Day Challenge, where she’ll be starting something new every single day this January.

From having a crack at breakdancing, getting stuck into model-making, and saying da to learning Russian, Giovanna’s got one busy month ahead of her.

How will she fit it all into her packed schedule?

Keep track each day to find out. Follow the Barclaycard 31 Day Challenge with #StartToday.
