Wow! I can’t believe half the year has gone by already!
June has been a hard month for me, for many reasons, but I’ve found an amazing community in blogging. I’ve met so many amazing people who’ve been there for me, despite barely knowing me!
This month, I finished high school, started blogging, & ended my relationship.
I’ve learned so much about myself and who I want to become this month. All of this, I can credit to blogging & the amazing people I have met.
Since June has come to an end (honestly, thank god), here are some of the things I loved this month!
–Girl Boss--> After hearing so much about Girl Boss, I decided to watch the show on Netflix & I loved it! I binge watched it & finished it in only 1 day. I really, really want to get the book now so that I can read the whole story. The show itself was so inspiring & motivating!
-Wonder Woman–> I absolutely adored this film, I even saw it twice in June & have recommended it to just about everyone! My life goal is now to become as bad ass as Wonder Woman!
– Irene’s Story–> I have been absolutely obsessed with Irene’s Story this month! My favorite dress is from there, I wore it to graduation & in the recent photo shoot I did! Everything at Irene’s Story is pretty affordable & just so dang cute. Half my closet is from there!
–Nike Air Force Ones–> I’ve been wearing these shoes almost every day! The Nike outlet store near me had these on sale for around $60 & I just had to get them, they are normally $90! I’m obsessed, they look cute with just about everything & are great for squatting!
-Country–> This month, I’ve been loving country music (seriously, it’s all I’ve been listening to)! Sam Hunt gives me life! I’ve created a playlist on Spotify if you’re interested in what I’ve been listening to, you can find it here!
a few random things:
-iPad–> I got my iPad as a graduation gift from my mom & it is amazing! I use it to take notes, edit photos, and read posts/books. I just couldn’t love it any more!
–Leuchtturm1917–> I bought two of these journals one for organizing my blog & the other for school/personal life. I haven’t been using the one for school & my personal life very much, but I’ve been loving using my blogging journal! I have everything organized in there and it’s just great. In the past, I used Moleskine notebooks for bullet journaling, but I’m so glad that I made the switch!
–Amazon Tap–> I got this for my birthday in April, from my dad, but this month I started heavily using my tap! It can tell you the weather, take notes, send messages, and play music. I’ve been using it during the day while I work on my blog to listen to music & I love it!
blogs i’ve been loving:
–Krista Aoki–> Anytime I have any questions about blogging I head over to Krista’s blog! I’ve learned so much from her! She has an amazing Passion Profit e-course, which I just recently started & you should definitely check it out. Her income reports are some of my favorites, they are super informative & part of the reason I decided to start blogging!
– Samanthability–> I love this blog! If you’re in college you gotta check it out. She has such amazing & helpful posts for students. I’m a huge fan of her Essential Resources for College Students post! Plus her blog is just so dang adorable.
–Helene in Between–> If you haven’t check out Helene’s blog yet, you’re missing out! I’ve probably visited her blog at least once a day this month! She has such great travel posts & posts about blogging/social media! I’m slightly obsessed with her!! (In case you can’t tell by my over usage of exclamation points lol!)
–Carly Everyday–> I love this blog!! Plus Carly is such an amazing person (& she’s gorgeous!). She started an amazing Cover to Cover series, the first book she’s written about is Gone Girl! The photos she takes are amazing, her blog just has such an amazing feel to it!
favorite blogging resources:
–Creative Market–> I used this for my theme & to get a few elements of my logo!
–Canva–> Every graphic I’ve created has been created on canva! I have an unhealthy obsession lol.
–#TheGramGang Instagram Challenge, I just signed up for this challenge & I’m beyond excited to actually start it! My Instagram is nowhere near where I want it to be so hopefully this will whip it into shape!
my goals for july:
-Make my Instagram look cohesive & develop a theme
-Connect with other bloggers
-Make my blog look better
-Get back into eating healthy & going to the gym consistently
-Be able to speak basic Spanish
-Create a media kit for my blog
-Improve my photography
-Develop a morning routine
Thinking of all the things I want to accomplish in July gives me a bit of anxiety, to be honest. I know I can do it, I just have to learn to manage my time even better.
