September Goals ♥ Blog & Lifestyle

September Goals
It's time to share my goals that I want to accomplish in September. As always I will be sharing my blog and lifestyle goals. This month I decided to take a look back at the goals that I set up for myself in August. I never did this in my past monthly goals because I didn't want these posts to get too long but after reading other bloggers monthly goals posts I thought that it would be better to take a look back to see how many goals I completed and hold myself accountable.

Last Month's Goals
Comment on blogs, Twitter, and Instagram
I only commented on blogs but not on Twitter or Instagram so I can't completely cross this off.

Start making DIY projects
Again, I can only cross half of this goal off because technically I did post the crochet sunglass cozy pattern but I didn't post as many DIY projects as I would've liked but I'm proud that I posted at least one.

Buy a Nintendo Switch
Yup! I honestly didn't think I was going to find one but I did! I am so happy!

Have a closet cleanse
Another yes! Plus, I also cleaned out the drawers on my wardrobe too!

DIY for myself
Not only did I finish the two crochet painting that I wanted to finish but I also finished crocheting these cupcake coasters that have been sitting in my crochet bin for years! The pattern is from Twinkie Chan.

This Month's Goals
1. Start planning out Blogtober and Blogmas
I'm still not sure whether I have enough Halloween/Autumn ideas for there to be a Blogtober but so far I am really pleased with my Blogtober ideas, I will keep you updated if I decided to partake. As for Blogmas, I've participated in Blogmas for as long as I can remember so I feel like I just have to do it every year I have a couple ideas but I need more so I can start planning as soon as possible so the holiday stress doesn't get to me.

2. Post 2-4 times a week on Instagram
Maybe you have noticed that I started to post more on my Instagram. I've been slowing trying to post more pictures up on my Insta-feed. Some may be wondering why I want to post on Instagram more and I just want to be more active on all of my social media to spread my blog name out there. I can easily just post photos of my scheduled blog post every day (which I've done in the past) but I want to post random photos of my life like cute things or pictures of Lucy.

3. Get rid of candles
Back when I was cleaning out my drawers I found a lot of candles from Bath and Body Works and Yankee Candle. I have over 5 large candles that I want to finish burning so I can make room for new autumn scented candles! I actually already started this goal and have been doing a pretty fine job at burning at least one candle a day. Most of the candles are halfway done so my goal is to burn through as many of these as I can.

4. Start using my bullet journal again
Remember my bullet journal? Well, I haven't used that thing in months! It's so annoying because I spent a lot of money on that journal and I don't use it enough so I feel like I am not getting my money's worth out of it. It's not like I can sell that thing either because it's already scribbled all over. So I want to start using my bullet journal more I've been getting inspiration from Instagram and Youtube so hopefully, that will help inspire me to journal more.

5. Go to the doctor
I haven't gone to a proper doctor since I was 19 (I am now 24) so it's been a long time! It's not that I'm scared or anything (I would much rather get regular check ups) it's because of health care. Long story short, I have been having some stomach issues and I really want to get it checked out because the pain has gotten stronger in the past two weeks. Hopefully, it isn't anything serious.

  1. I love the idea of Blogtober and Blogmas. I'm so excited about all the possibilities for Blogmas posts. I probably won't post everyday, but I'll try to post a bit more than usual. Good luck on this month's goals!

    1. I have some really cute ideas for Blogtober but I'm not sure if I have enough to post everyday. I might end up just posting every other day. ♥

  2. I had a closet cleanse last month and it feels SO GOOD doesn't it?! I hope that you get to see a doctor soon and that there's nothing too bad with your stomach!

    1. It would feel good if I didn't have boxes and bags of clothing I no longer I want on my closet floor but I do plan on selling and donating. ♥

  3. I should probably start doing monthly goals to keep me going and motivated with things! Good job on managing to get the cast majority of your August goals met! Sometimes it's hard to know whether you've over stretched with goals or not, but you've done fab and I'm sure this month you will do just as well! And I hope you get to a doctor soon and that they can help you easily!

    1. Thank you! You should definitely keep a list of goals! Write them down and keep them in a place you walk by often. ♥
