July Goals

How is it already the middle of July?! The last time I posted was 12 days ago...yikes!! This hiatus has been completely unintentional. But sometimes, it just happens. Work and life are keeping me busy and I wouldn't have it any other way :) Hence why blogging got put on the back burner. I do miss writing and posting but coming home at 7pm and putting a blog post together doesn't work out too well. Alas, two weeks into July- here are my goals. 

Let's take a look back at June's goals first. 

Be intentional with more "me" time- focusing on my Faith/possible Bible study and journaling I've been looking into bible studies to see which one fits me best

Exercise 5 days a week + Clean Eating- need to get back on track- there's no other way to say that :) using the "I'm busy" excuse is no longer acceptable WHY IS THIS SUCH A STRUGGLE?! Does anyone have ideas to get back into the swing of things??

Finish 2/3 summer classes- Tomorrow they will be finished. one. more. day. WOO! Yes! Classes are done! The third and last class is in progress right now. In fact, I should be working on the assignment ;)

Begin to grow my blog- connecting with more bloggers, possible sponsorships and (hopefully!) increasing my followers  Okay, well this kind of happened
Update the tabs on my navigation bar! Done!

Schedule posts and keep up with writing! Er, well, this one didn't happen!

Read 2 books and start a summer reading list- this could be a bit of a challenge, but we'll try ;) Does reading one and starting another count?!

Use my camera more!! (And possibly purchase a new lens!!?) one of my biggest passions is photography. For my high school graduation project I shadowed 4 different photographers and it was an AMAZING experience. I loved every minute of it. However, as a college student I haven't had the time, which makes me sad because I love it and really, really miss it...So, this month's goal is to take more pictures!!  This actually happened

Have more "girl time" with my besties- this one's a given and needs no explanation :) Yes!! Woohoo! Loved seeing my girls more than just twice a year!

Try something new/do something different- possibly a new hairstyle and color...any ideas?? :) I did both! Hair cut + color...even went to a new salon!! LOVED it. More on this later :)

At least one beach trip... sand and saltwater is good medicine for this girls soul! We actually tried!! This month it's actually happening! 

Early to bed, early to rise- so I can be more productive

ENJOY JUNE. Sit and soak it all in. Enjoy the little moments. Sunshine, friends, and family. A few pool days and fruity drinks too :) This did happen, so that's all that matters, right?!

-Finish the book that I'm reading before I start a new one

-Purchase a new camera lens

-Post at least 5 more times

-Have a beach trip

-Clean out + organize my closet 

Easy to accomplish! Hope y'all had a great Monday!


  1. I think a beach trip is ALWAYS an awesome goal :)

  2. No wonder you hadn't posted in a few days- you've been so busy and productive this month!!! Yay for almost being done with summer classes! I wish I had better ideas for getting back in the swing of eating healthy and working out, but it's always rough the first week or so back for me... Once I get past that uncomfortable week, I'm good to go though and so much happier!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from every single one of you! xoxo
