Sharing my October goals to keep me accountable during the busiest quarter of the year!

Hey friends and happy Monday! Last week we officially entered October (say what?!?!) which kicks off the busiest season of the year for me. In retail we call October/November/December “Q4” and it’s the craziest time of the year as we push our holiday sales and prep for a new year! It’s also super busy on the blog, because as a consumer and “influencer” were all shopping for those perfect Christmas gifts! With all this busy, I thought working through some monthly goals would help to keep me on track and focused through this season.

Here’s what I’m focusing on in October:

ONE: Close my “move ring” every day this month.

Since this is the time of year when a lot of diets/healthy habits struggle, I want to keep myself on track by working to close the move ring on my Apple Watch every day. It’s a simple step to keep me on track!

TWO: Plan two girls nights.

Y’all know my friends mean the WORLD to me and I want to foster intentional & quality time with them by planning two girls nights this month. Life is busy and it’s so important to carve out time for those that matter most!

THREE: Publish my book review from the summer!

This is how behind I am… I’ve read so many great books over the past few months and I’m itching to share them with y’all! Time to buckle down and get this written & published this month!

FOUR: Host two more closet sales.

I’ve been cleaning/simplifying all year and hosting closet sales over on IG has been a great way to give my closet a new home! I’d like to continue the trend by hosting two additional closet sales this month.

FIVE: Launch the Holiday Shop on the blog Oct 31st!

I am already brainstorming how to bring you the best & freshest holiday content this year and am excited to launch my holiday shop at the end of the month! GMB will be your go-to guide for all things fun and holiday related!

      I have so much fun doing them and it’s a great way to show how things fit/look before someone buys them!
