We’re already six days into July and I’m just now setting my goals for the month…oops! This month already feels busy. I know I am going to close my eyes and poof…it will be August! Each month I like to set a few intentional goals for myself focusing on fun things I want to accomplish along with some of the more dreaded (yet purposeful) tasks.
Create a Financial Plan
Though I am very transparent in most areas of my personal life I am very closed off about finances. Don’t get me wrong, I think talking about money is pretty tacky but I am closed off about finances to a fault. Budget is practically a four letter word in my vocabulary and my aversion to financial planning does not do me any favors. My goal for the month is to take time to really look at my income, bills, spending habits, etc and set up a financial plan for myself. It’s honestly embarrassing I haven’t created any sort of budget before but…it’s better to start now than never right?!
Read Three New Books
Between my new Audible obsession and my natural love of reading I try to spend time reading (or listening to books) whenever possible. This month I want to read or listen to three new books. Since I have been reading quite a few biographies and fashion industry books recently I definitely want to immerse myself in some really fun fiction. It is summer after all. If you have any great book suggestions be sure to send them my way!
Host a “Halloween in July” Party
My bestie and I ADORE Halloween. October is my favorite month simply because I am so obsessed with the holiday. I’ve always been sad that there aren’t more excuses to dress up in costumes, so my best friend Nicole and I decided to create another reason to celebrate.
Post Three Outfit Posts
The past month has been a really bad month of blogging for me. I’ve had so many ideas yet I’ve completely failed at scheduling time to write and take photos. I’m hoping to set up a shoot with a photographer I have worked with in the past to create a few new outfit posts for this space. I don’t solely discuss fashion in this space but it is one of my largest passions and I feel as if I’ve been neglecting the topic in this space as I have embraced fashion talk every day at work.
Try a New Outdoor Activity
Summer is the time for being outdoors! I have major sun guilt when it’s a nice day and I am unable to get outside. All year I long for the sun and in summer I make it my mission to enjoy the beautiful weather. This month I want to try an outdoor activity I haven’t yet. A few of my ideas include paddle board yoga, wake boarding, glamping kayaking or if all else fails a new hike. I want all the outdoor time I can get!
