SEPTEMBER GOALS // PERSONAL & BLOGGING + AUGUST RECAP

HOW is it SEPTEMBER already?! This year is flying before my eyes. As I do every month, here's my goals that I am determined to meet by the end of the month. I am super proud of myself for completing or getting a major head start on all of my goals for August. Hopefully, I can keep that same momentum going this month.




August Goals Revisited

Personal Goals 

One // Finish redecorating my office/spare room

I completely redid my office/spare room this month, and again it is so close to being done! One last touch and it will be ready to share!

Two // Reorganize my closet & purge some more items

Check! This weekend Chris and I are taking the last of the items that never sold on Poshmark to Plato's Closet for one last chance before they are donated.

Blogging Goals

One // Continue to organically grow my Instagram profile

Still forever working on this goal. Follow along with me on Instagram!

Two // Utilize Pinterest as a search engine to drive traffic for my blog

YAS! I actually have started to work on this. One of my most popular pinned posts gained me over 2,500 pageviews in just a few days. PTL!

Three // Update older blog posts 

Man, I was on a roll last month, because I actually did this, too! I went back through and updated the posts that I could. There are still a few posts that I need to go back and update the wording, but unfortunately I can't update the pictures since they were home decor progress pictures. The iPhone pics will have to stay.

September Goals

Personal Goals 

One // Go on a coffee date with a friend I haven't seen in a while

There are a few friends that come to mind that I haven't made time to see. I work from home and create my own schedule. I have no excuse for not making the time for friends.

Two // Finish purging our home & closets

Over the past few months, I have really been hardcore cleaning and purging my home. Within the next coming weeks, I hope to have all of the closets cleaned and purged. Now that Summer fashions are coming to an end, it's time that I go through and get rid of any Summer piece I didn't wear this past year. If I didn't choose it this past season, chances are I'm not going to next year.

Blogging Goals

One // Score 6 sponsored posts for the month

Right now I already have two scheduled for this month, but I still need to score a few more. Cheers to the never-ending pitch writing as a blogger!

Two // Post more style & beauty posts

You guys, I never realized how hard it is to stay consistent with style and beauty posts. Not only do they take twice as long to write, Chris gets home when it's just about dark so there's no real lighting for pictures. This month, I am going to be more diligent at planning weekend photoshoots, so I can bring more of the content to you that you want and that I want to write about.

What are some of your goals for this month? 
Let me know in the comments. 

Stay Classy.
xx,
Kristen
