We did it! We made it through the first quarter. I can't believe that the first three months of 2018 have already come and gone. It sure is flying by fast. As I'm looking back on my goals for this past month and even this past quarter, I'm extremely proud of how far I've come in such a short time, not only with my blog, but in my personal life as well.

There are definitely some things that I have slacked on or really need to work on, but overall, it's shaping out to be a really great year. I'll give you a quick recap of last month's goals and then we'll just get right into this month's kick-booty goals.

I'm also sharing one of my new go-to outfits. I've been obsessing over this blush blazer I picked up a few weeks ago. No shame, but I wore it twice this week...when I wasn't in jammies. haha! Adding a blazer just elevates a casual look to the next level.

March Goals Recap //

Personal Goals

One // Continue to save $$$

Okay, no money saved, but we have a plan on how we will be saving tons of money. A plan is better than nothing!

Two // Practice more vocal training

I did this ever so slightly... I had a lot of vocal practices for Easter. Does that count?

Blogging Goals

One // Hit 3,750 followers on Instagram

Lol. That's all I have to say about that. I only gained a couple hundred new followers in March, so I missed my goal by half. I also slacked on being active on Instagram, so that didn't help me at all. I'll get it this month!

Two // Finish & prep to launch my secret project

I'm so close to finishing my secret project. I'm taking my time with it, because I want it to be perfect!

Three // Publish more style content

I did it! I had style content go up at least once a week and it felt so great. I can't wait for warmer weather to have style posts even more frequently!

April Goals //

Personal Goals

One // Purge our apartment

In case ya haven't heard yet, last week I announced that WE'RE MOVING!! We are super excited for our next adventure, but we'd love to cut down on a lot of things we don't need or want anymore. I still have one bin of clothes (I started with a whole closet!) left to get rid of, and I'm sure I'll find some other stuff to purge. Chris and I are both super motivated to clean house. It will be a true spring cleaning this year.

Two // Take better care of my body

I have to admit, I've slacked a bit on eating right, skincare, and exercise. Now that warmer weather is here to hopefully stay, I'm a little more motivated to get out there and workout again. I need to get beach-bod ready...I have a long way to go. haha!

Three // Establish better work hours

Raise your hand if you have a horrible work-life balance. 🙋 I'm the worst at working a "normal" schedule. When I'm feeling inspired, I work. Whether it's during normal working hours or three in the morning, I could be working. It all depends on if a great idea strikes! My goal is to get my booty up a little earlier so I can be done working by six when Chris gets home.

Blogging Goals

One // Pitch a minimum of two brands per week

I have had so many amazing opportunities from brands reaching out to me, but I need to get it together and continue to reach out to brands. I have a long list of dream brands I want to work with, so I better get started!

Two // Be more active on Pinterest

Pinterest is probably my favorite social media platform of all time. Last month my Pins brought in over 60K pageviews, and month over month, that number is growing. I used to be super active and strategic with my pinning schedule, but I've slacked a little. I'm going to get back to being active more often on Pinterest and see if I can grow even more!

Three // Respond quicker to comments & questions

Engagement is key to building a lasting community. I strive to be quick to respond to comments & questions, but sometimes life takes over and I push it off, especially when there are a ton to answer! I had a huge problem with my comment plugin this past month, so a lot of my comments on my blog from the past few months got deleted. If you had a question somewhere in there, I hope I was able to answer it before it disappeared! As for new comments & questions, my goal is to respond by end of day or definitely by the end of that week at the latest. I've definitely got my work cut out for me.

Now for the fun part, style talk! How cute is this blazer, right?! You guys know that I'm obsessed with blush, so of course I needed a blush blazer. I figured you can't go wrong with getting a blazer that fits well, because you can dress it up or keep it casual like I did for this outfit. Pairing a blazer with a graphic tee is such a simple, yet stylish outfit.

If you can't tell, my graphic tee says, "nope, not today" haha! Whenever I'm having one of those days, I throw on this tee, and suddenly I'm ready to take on the world. You can either look at it as meh, I'm not doing anything OR nope, not today Satan, I've got things to do! Either way you look at it, it's still a cute tee--perfect for a spring look.

Can we talk about my peep-toe booties for a second?! I received them in a PR package this past week and I've been wearing them non-stop! They're so super comfortable and I just love the tassel detail. In case you like them, I linked them below, as well as everything else I'm wearing in today's post.
