Seriously, the month of March left me completely zapped out. I was working crazy hours at work. Like full on 12 hours days of work. On top of that finding time to take pictures. Post content. Doing so many things at once will have anyone completely drained. Also to mention I got into a minor car accident. Now this post was supposed to go up yesterday but my feelings were still hurt from the accident I had. I was just not feeling it and it was so important for me to reflect and just relax.
Well the March Madness contest at work is over and now I can get a bit of my “normal” back. My head is back in the game and I ready to tackle April on the second day.
No new fashion trends to report this month. However, I am came across an interesting article in April’s issue of InStyle Magazine. It is titled “Does My Closet Make Me Look Fat?” by Eric Wilson. Now the title alone is interesting to me. I was looking at my closet yesterday and I came to the conclusion that I need to go on a “shopping diet”. The article was discussing different ways to going on shopping diet. “Buying Nothing” Diet or Fiver Pierce French Wardrobe Challange.
I mean why do we buy certain clothing anyway? Are we depressed when we buy things? These article made think. I regularly reach for the same thing over and over. So I need to declutter and reorganize my closet. You should check that article out. Also, if you want to see post on how I declutter my closest, comment done below and let me know.
On the blog side of things, I must pat myself on the back! A girl got the courage to reach out to 3 different brands last month about collaborating. I actually felt confident enough to ask for compensation too. So a sis pitched herself. I took a big leap of faith.
I was so tired of waiting for brands to come to me. On Instagram I share a quote with my followers. “Close Mouths Don’t get Fed”. There is so much truth to this statement. You have to be willing to put yourself out there and speak up and out. Believe in yourself and up sell yourself. I encourage all my social media entrepreneurs out there to speak up and reach out. Pitch yourself. It is a skill and you have to develop it. I guarantee that somebody will bite.
March left me completely dehydrate. I was sucked dry and left in shambles. April I want to focus on having a clear head. I need more balance in my life. I never realized how hard it can be. Either I am working crazy hours or not being productive with my blog (my passion). Or I am literally running up miles on my truck. So starting today I am going to make a conscious decision to be more balance. I doing to deep clean some important areas in my life. My personal goals for the month are:
- Making a conscious decision to be balance
- Drink more water
- Reach out to 2 to 3 brands a month
- Continue to keep going with blogging plans & stay organize
- Learn to sell myself when pitching brands
- Read more to improve my writing skills
- Continue to believe in myself
What are you looking forward to in April?
