It’s that time again!
Here’s another look at what my goals were for March:
I’m happy to say that I accomplished each one of these and, while there is still room for improvement on a couple, it’s nice to finally feel like I had a successful month.
I used up a lot of things that I had been saving for “the right moment” – a facial scrub, some face masks, an eye cream, and some makeup samples, just to name a few. Some of them I may repurchase, and for others it was nice to use them up and make space for some new things. It felt like I was treating myself every time I used a product that had previously just been sitting around! Spoiler alert: I had so much fun with this that one of my April goals is based on the same concept!
I found a dress!! It was actually one of the most uneventful wedding experiences so far, but one of the least stressful and I certainly needed that. I had tried on a few dresses with my mom, but none that I really loved and was having a hard time finding a style that fit the slightly nontraditional route that I knew I wanted to take. I ended up seeing a dress online at David’s Bridal, so I popped in one afternoon by myself, tried it on, and walked out with it 20 minutes later! I hadn’t expected to like it, so I think there was so little pressure in trying it on that it was just a really low key experience. The employees now refer to me as “The World’s Fastest Bride”. I’ll take it. 🙂
I am proud to say that I have limited myself to Starbucks breakfasts only one day per week. That’s not to say that I haven’t visited for a late afternoon latte, but we’re taking baby steps here. I’ve been having a lot of oatmeal (with pomegranate seeds – delicious!), whole grain waffles, and fruit. If you have any other breakfast ideas for me (because I tend to get bored quickly) please leave them below!
Here’s what’s on the agenda for April:
I have a lot of DIY projects in mind for our upcoming wedding, but so far they’re all sitting in various Michael’s and AC Moore bags around the apartment. The goal this month is to complete at least one of them so that I can enjoy my summer and not be buried inside under a pile of glitter and glue.
As I mentioned before, it felt so nice to use up a bunch of products last month and create some much needed free space, so I’ve decided to apply this to my wardrobe and jewelry collection as well. I intend to purge my closet and discover some new ways to wear old pieces. It will be like shopping for free in my own closet! Plus, it will be nice to make a little extra cash at the consignment store 😉
Lastly, I intend to get up early one or two days each week to add some time to my day. Lately I’ve been feeling like there just isn’t enough time in a day to get everything done and still have some time for me, so if I can get up even 20 minutes earlier to throw in a load of laundry or take care of some online banking before work, that will make my nights a little less chaotic. I hope.
Wish me luck! What things would you like to accomplish this month??
