Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween, I think the day after Halloween is almost as fun because you can scroll through social media and check out all of the costumes you missed in real life. The party I attended at the Castello di Amorosa was unreal. I’ve attended a Halloween party at the castle before but this celebration was even better!
October was amazing. I completed practically all of my October goals and made quite a few memories along the way. Though I have historically despised November, I’m working this year to make it just as lovely as October. Did I mention I’ll be spending the majority of the month in Napa Valley? I think the California sunshine is enough to perk up any November hater.
My November Goals:
Start a blog Newsletter| Inspired by Helene’s Quit Your Job to Blog course I’ve realized my blog totally needs a newsletter. At this point I can’t imagine sending something out more than once a month but I would love to start a newsletter for The Fairy Princess Diaries prior to the Christmas & New Year’s season. Be on the look out for more information!
Read Three New Books| Last month I read a few fabulous super girly novels (checkout my October reads), I find reading SO relaxing I knew I had to read at least three more books this month. I am always open for suggestions and recommendations. I recently purchased Orange Is the New Black and Maybe in Another Life so those two will likely be my first reads unless something else REALLY catches my eye.
Create an Art piece for the Living Room| I’ve been watching Design on Dime on Netflix recently (#GuiltyPleasure). I am always inspired by how quickly the designer is able to whip up a simple art piece that looks great in a room. There is a huge blank space in my living room I have been unsure what to do with…I am inspired to create something myself. This month my goal is to get creative and create an inexpensive (Under $50) art piece that will look unique and add character to my super girly living room.
Take a course on SEO|My job requires social media and search engine optimization on a daily basis. My employer recently offered to pay for an SEO course of my choosing (yay) so I am super excited for the learning opportunity. This month I’m hoping to find a course and enroll to get started improving my knowledge. If you have any great course recommendations please let me know!
Run 5 Days a Week| I won’t have easy access to a gym most of the month so my goal is to run, run, run! Napa Valley is gorgeous (obvi) so I have no excuse not to wake up and stretch my legs outdoors a little bit.
I love making goals for myself at the start of each month, giving myself a little bit of an outline for the month feels empowering! Are you looking forward to the month of November (or do you generally hate the month like I do?). Let me know which goals you’re working towards, I find reading other peoples’ goals very inspiring!
