August was a bit of a “meh” kinda of month for me, I planned to do so much that I actually didn’t have the motivation for. I held a giveaway which I hoped would encourage me to get back into blogging, but honestly after seeing all of the accounts that entered which are set up purely for the purpose of winning giveaways, it pushed me even further into bloggers block.
Anyway, some good news from August… If you follow me on snapchat you’ll know that I’ve been decorating for blaaaady ages, well thats all done now and our place is finally ready to rent out. I’ve also had a fabulous month in work, I got a bonus and I have been given a MAC as my work computer, which has already made me so much more productive… After using MAC’s previously I knew how good they were, but I didn’t realise how much more convenient it would be having my own. So I’m hoping for September to be a productive month after last months fail, with three things in particular I want to get done…
Shoot and post my first OOTD
I love fashion, but I’ve always been a little (very) scared of outfit posts. I have decided that I WILL shoot a OOTD in September and have the courage to post it… So brace yourself for some awkward posing, and very typical blogger set up whilst I work out what is best for me.
Start exercising again
This is my main goal for September. When I was a student I went to the gym 4x a week! Now I’m a graduate I just haven’t got round to fitting exercise into my routine and work life. I really want to be in a solid routine before the evenings become darker, mainly so I don’t get stuck in a rut of being lazy and spending my nights watching Netflix with a packet of dairy milk buttons. Hopefully wedding dress shopping will give me the boost I need to get the body I want.
Save money for my wedding
There are so many new and exciting beauty launches I have my eye on this month, Kat Von D going into Debenhams being the most exciting… However I have decided I will restrict myself to two things *sobs* (that’s if I actually manage to get my hands on them) as I really want to save a large amount of my wage for my wedding. Last month I managed to around 1/4 of my wage towards my wedding, and this month I’m making it 1/3, so it is going to be a long month!
Not related to savings but in the hunt for wedding inspiration I’m shocked by how little Youtube videos there are about planning and general tips, if anyone has any recommendations then please comment and let me in on the action… So far I have loved the “Bridedeforce” videos and found them so helpful.
Do you have any goals or things you would like to accomplish in September?
