Hey guys! Welcome back. I hope you all had a great week. I am so excited that October is here! September was such a crazy month, but it went by quickly and I’m excited to see what October has in store for us. But before we can fully dive into a new month, I need to share my favorite things from last month and let you know what my goals for this month is. I’m expecting a lot of changes for this month so my goals will be a little all over the place, but they will still be good!
From cinnamon rolls to cookies, I have absolutely loved baking this month. I have always really enjoyed baking, so any opportunity to do it is really exciting for me. But as we get into Fall and the cooler months I really love to bake. I’m looking forward to all the new things I try this year and what I end up loving. If you have any recipes or Fall favorites, let me know in the comments!
It’s no great secret that I love Fall. I always have. There’s just something about it that makes me so happy. And it’s finally starting to cool down here. We still have our fair share of warm days, but we are also getting plenty of cooler days which is really exciting. I love this time of year and I really enjoy the rainy and cold days because it’s perfect for staying inside and just relaxing for the day.
With the job I started this month I am on my feet a lot and I’m always moving. It’s been really great, but sometimes my feet really hurt. So taking bubble baths has become an even more regular occurrence. I have them about twice a week now and they really help to relax and ease some of the pain in my feet. And also I just love bubble baths in general so I can’t complain about an excuse to have one.
Painting has become a hobby I am becoming more and more invested in over the past few months. I have so many canvases painted. Some are even hanging up. It’s so exciting and I’m really loving just painting whatever comes to mind and what I’m feeling in the moment. The creativity is so much fun and I love that the possibilities are truly endless. I’m not a professional or anything, but it’s just for fun.
Another reason this is my favorite time of year is that so many great shows come back this time of year. Bachelor In Paradise has been on, The Masked Singer came back. The Voice came back. So many shows that I love came back and it’s just been so much fun getting to catch up on all of these shows. I’m a little behind on all of them right now, but I’m getting caught up and it’s so exciting.
Read one book.
I’m really trying to get back into reading and I know this month is potentially going to be really crazy so I don’t want to push myself too much. But I think I can get one book in for sure. I might shoot for reading a fiction book this month because it’s been a while since I just enjoyed some good fiction.
Have two self care nights.
I really try to prioritize self care, especially when life gets crazy and everything is happening at once. So this month I am really going to try to have at least two self care nights. Probably on a Friday night. Just so I can make sure I am really doing something for myself and taking care of myself.
Power hour once a week.
If you are unfamiliar power hours are what I like to call an hour where I do as much as I possibly can to get things knocked out. It usually involves putting clothes away, cleaning the bathroom, doing the dishes, or other things that can be knocked out in less than an hour. It’s an hour once a week where I dedicate myself to doing the things I have been putting off and really just get them out of the way. Until next time.
Start Christmas Shopping.
I know it’s October. I know it’s not Christmas time yet. But I get so excited. I also have a lot of people to buy for, plus a cat. So I’m really trying to start getting ahead of things now so I’m more prepared when December gets here and everything I want to get is already sold out. I just want to start, not necessarily finish.
Post on Instagram everyday.
Whether it’s a photo, a story, a video, or something else, I really want to strive to be active on Instagram everyday. I just want to be over there interacting with you guys as much as possible. I do pretty well at replying to messages, but I’m not as active on the actual page as I would like to be. So I’m really just trying to get on there as often as possible and just share more of my daily life. So let me know what you guys would like to see!
And those are my favorites from last month and my goals for this month! I’m so excited to see what October has in store. It should be a fun one for sure. Thank you so much for stopping by! I really hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Let us know in the comments what your favorites were or what your goals are. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
