October Goals | 2017

Another month has come and gone. Can you guys believe it’s October? I honestly don’t know where this year has gone. Gone are the summer months, and now we’re all enjoying our pumpkin bread, apple picking, and everything that fall entails. As for me, Florida is still as hot as summer so those have all been put on hold. But I’m keeping my fingers crossed that some cold weather is coming our way!

I know I said this last month, but this time I’m getting my life together. If you all haven’t noticed, the blog got a redesign last month, and I’m making the graphics for my posts different! I’m really dedicating a lot of time to the blog and I want it to look amazing! At the end of the day, this is my personal ‘brand’ and I want it to look as awesome as I can.

Without further ado, here are my goals for the month!

+ Create a media kit

After seeing Abigail’s post about media kits I’ve been wanting to create one for myself. I’m starting to get more collaboration opportunities and want to (possibly) start pitching myself to brands, but can’t-do so without a media kit! I’ve been brushing up on my Illustrator and InDesign skills so hopefully, I’ll be sharing my own media kit with you all by the end of the month!

+ Finish the Harry Potter books

During September, I took the plunge and started the Harry Potter series. This past weekend I finished the fourth book, and I want to try and finish the series by the end of the month. I knew the books would be better, but I never imagined them being this amazing! I find myself reading until late into the night and don’t want to put them down. I’m trying my best to read one a week, and have been successful thus far, so fingers crossed!

+ Clean out closets, dresser, etc.Ā 

I don’t know about you guys, but I haven’t done a closet clearout in forever. I used to do it every year after coming home from school but haven’t done one in at least two years. Now that I’m finally about to make a move to start a career, I think it is finally time to do a big purge. I’ve been wanting to create a capsule wardrobe, so if you guys have any insight or recommendations for capsule wardrobes, leave them here!

What are your goals for the month of October? Let’s conquer this month and new season together!

  • A media kit did wonders for my brand collaborations on Instagram, I bought a gorgeous but inexpensive template off etsy which was super helpful! Happy October!
