If there’s one thing I’ve learned about setting personal goals, it’s that while it may seem very easy and achievable at first, it can also seem overwhelming or even impossible later on. I know most of us set new years resolutions every year and are super motivated to achieve them for the first couple days, but after those first couple days pass, we abandon them, and then repeat that cycle every year. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place! I absolutely love goal setting and pushing myself to become the best version of myself that I can be and wanted to share some of my tips and tricks on how to stay on track with personal goals and not abandon them.Continue reading “How to Stay on Track with Personal Goals”
Due to COVID-19 closing many business offices around the world and social distancing, how many of you out there have had to transition to working from home? I’ve been working from home for over a month now for my job, and honestly, I’m actually really enjoying it! No commute giving more time in the day, hanging out at home, it’s been great! Today I’m sharing all my tips on how to stay motivated while working from home. Let’s get started!
If there’s one thing I feel that doesn’t get talked about too much online, it’s the topic of what life looks like within the first 6 months to a year after graduating college. This is such a crazy, transitional, and totally unglamorous period of time, and I am here today to share my story. Sometimes it’s nice to stumble upon an article or blog post about something super relatable to something you’re going through in life or a period of time in your life, and I hope this post finds you when you need it and offers a little bit of hope and inspiration!
I know you all are probably not used to seeing a blog post from me on the weekends, but today is officially my 23rd birthday and, because of that, I wanted to share 23 things I have learned over my 23 years of life so far. I always love seeing these kinds of posts from other bloggers, and, honestly, I just love looking back on these kinds of posts! I can’t wait to look back on this post a couple years from now and see what my life is like then compared to now or how I might have changed and/or thought differently.
Now that I am turning 23, I am really starting to feel like an adult, and it’s a super weird feeling that also really excites me. I guess because I just finished school, I still had somewhat felt young or like a young adult, and now that I am out of school and working a full-time job, I feel kind of old tbh haha. I know that 23 is a young age, but now that I am officially adulting, it just gave me those feelings and it really inspired me to write this post and share my life thoughts and how life really is too short.
Today on the blog I thought I’d do something a little bit different. Rather than writing a standard post about my life, I thought I’d take a moment and share with all of you some of my personal favorite bloggers out there!
I follow these bloggers on social media and absolutely love their content on their blogs, and even Instagram stories. Each blog is so unique and tells a completely different story than the other. Every day, I always take some time to check up on my favorite blogger gals and love to read and watch their Insta/Snap stories or vlogging channels on YouTube about what’s new in their lives and what they’re up to, they’re all so inspiring!
Especially as a blogger myself, each blog is so inspiring for me and helps me learn what I can do to help my blog grow as well. These are all the blogs that I get my inspiration from and are some good reads!
- Krista Robertson of Covering the Bases (coveringbases.com)
What I absolutely love about Krista’s blog and social media is that she is so honest and real. What I mean by real in this case is there’s not a lot of photoshop or fake personality covering up who she really is. Her Insta stories, blog posts, and YouTube videos are all real-life and authentic. This is really inspiring for me because not a lot of people on social media are actually like that. I don’t even think I’m like that at some points. On social media, we’re all showing our best selves to one another. With Krista’s blog and social media, everything is real life. We all have bad days, and it’s okay to show that to other people, just to remind us all that we’re all human and face the same kinds of things every day.
- Lindsey Higgins of Lindsey Kate (lindseykate.co)
Lindsey’s blog represents her fun and hardworking lifestyle, she is such an inspiration to me! What I love about her content and social media is that working hard doesn’t have to be exhausting or miserable, life is a fun and great thing and there is always something to do. She runs her own marketing business and I think that is so cool, especially as I am currently going to school for my degree in marketing and communications. She really is the perfect role model for women, a strong and independent, entrepreneurial woman living in the big city. She is everything I hope to be some day!
- Caitlin Covington of Southern Curls & Pearls (southerncurlsandpearls.com)
Caitlin is literally a style icon. What I love the most about her blog and content is that she is so fashionable, like I just want her entire wardrobe! She has the cutest outfits and doest the cutest things with her hair styles and makeup, all of it is everything that I totally want. Her fashion sense and beauty trends inspire me to want to try out different products for hair or makeup that I wouldn’t ordinarily try on my own, she is an amazing influencer and I love all of her photos. She is the definition of #BloggerGoals.
- Kahla Perry & Rechelle Lewis of Sea of Sanctuary (seaofsanctuary.com)
What I love about Sea of Sanctuary is that Kahla and Rechelle are Seattle based bloggers, just like me! I love being able to read blogs from local bloggers in my area, hometown pride! I think it’s totally awesome that they are two best friends who run a blog together. It’s hard to find someone to work with in a business like this and it’s so inspiring that they do this, putting in so much time and effort to be as successful as they are. I love both of their fashion styles, all of their outfits are so cute. They are also totally real about life. Life is hard, but they show that it doesn’t always have to be so hard, it can be really fun too and full of adventure!
- Chelsea Lankford of Truelane (truelane.co)
A little fun fact about Truelane: Chelsea’s blog was actually the first blog I ever read that got me interested in blogging and inspired me to start my own. I remember back in the day as a college freshman, I reached out to her via email telling her how much I loved her blog and wanted to do something just like she did. When she responded to my email, I was so excited, she gave me super helpful tips on running a blog, and since then I have always admired her work. Another Seattle based blogger with a love for travel and fashion, just like me! Before I had my own blog and would read hers all the time, I always loved seeing her model her outfits and follow along on each travel adventure she went on. I was like, “Oh my gosh, I want her life so bad.” She is one of the bloggers on this list that really inspires me to work hard for what I want and to dream big.
I hope you all enjoyed this list in today’s post and I hope you all take a look at some of these blogs and social media, they are all amazing! Since all of these blogs are so inspiring for me, I hope they are all inspiring for you as well!
