Hi everyone & Happy Monday! We woke up to a light layer of snow covering the car and the ground. Today I am going to be sharing my goals for the month and what I have been up to the last few days. I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Manny and I spent it very low-key at home in our sweats relaxing while watching Netflix. I made a pork shoulder, red rice, stuffing and tostones (plantains). I do like turkey but not enough to make one myself and I made a ham last year.
The weather here in Connecticut has been bouncing back and forth between warm to slightly cold enough so to turn the heat on. The best bet is to just dress in layers so that you’re always prepared for this time of year. I am almost done with my Christmas shopping and that’s a good thing because around this time of year, the closest mall is a nightmare to go to in fact it is best to just avoid that entire area altogether. I went to a plaza near the mall yesterday to go to Marshall’s and I couldn’t believe how many people were there.
If you follow me on Snapchat, then you know all about my lovely car chronicles. Well I finally got the clutch replaced and now it feels like I am learning to drive stick shift all over again. I have to get used to it and break it in. It’s always something but at least I am not worried about getting stuck anywhere. The last few weeks I was only driving to and from work and staying within five miles from home just to stay on the safe side.
Let’s get into the Blog Goals
If you read my last post, then you already know that I decided to re-brand and I am so happy that I did. I have received so many awesome comments and feedback so Thank you again!
Sponsorships – Don’t forget, if you have a Blog / Business, you can sponsor me and in return I will let advertise for you! We all know that social media is the way of the world, in addition to advertising your business here on the blog, I will also broadcast on Twitter, post pictures on Instagram and talk about it on my Snapchat. If you are interested, you can visit my page for more information. If you have any further questions, you can send me an email so that we can discuss further. I would love the opportunity to work with you to help you grow your brand.
Snapchat – I love Snapchat because it allows me to share my silly side with you all. I also talk about my blog, share little snippets of my day and most of all, I enjoy watching all of your snaps! Don’t forget to follow me!
Email Subscribers – This is definitely one of the biggest goals I have at the moment. I can’t wait for the day that I can send newsletters and so much more. If you aren’t subscribed already, don’t forget to enter your email address in the box to the right so that you’ll always be the first to know when there is new and exciting content on the blog.
You Tube – I know that I haven’t posted a video in a while but unfortunately life happens and I have to put somethings on the back burner. I will have some time during the holiday break from work so I hope to be able to film a couple then. Don’t forget to Subscribe to my channel so that you can catch up on the videos that are there now and so you will know when I have posted a new video.
Instagram – I have been posting more #OOTD (Outfit of The Day) pictures and more planner pics too! If you’re not following me already, head on over and hit that Follow button.
Which planner will I use? – My fellow planner girls would understand! It’s a struggle for sure. I purchased a Traveler’s Notebook but I am not loving it as a planner at all therefore I need to decide whether I am going to use the Black/White Recollections Planner or go back to my black patent Filofax. Decisions, decisions. I guess you will just have to stay tuned to find out. I am going to use the new Goals Planner by Recollections as my blog planner.
Fitness – I will make it my mission to get to the gym no less than twice a week. The cold weather is getting closer but I can’t let that stop me.
Holidays – It’s time to put up the decorations and our Christmas tree which I may have to get another one because once again Manny just won’t stop growing so our 6 foot tree may be too short for him.
Favorite Outfit of the Week
I ordered some stickers from My Newest Addiction and they are gorgeous! I can’t wait to use them.
This is the second order that I’ve placed with Laura’s shop and I loved them so much that I did a review.
Well that wraps up this post about my goals for the new month. Have you already decorated for the holidays?
What are you most excited about?
