Time for another monthly goals post, I really enjoyed my September Goals quite a bit, it helped me focus my attention a bit more and generally I’m a bit more intentional in my actions.
I’m keeping the Spending Less goal. I’m getting slowly better at this. I keep two cards in my purse to remind me I want to be debt free and I want to go travelling. I’m definitely slowly getting better in my spending habits. I’ve also re-discovered some gems in my makeup collection because of this! Winning!
I’m adding in Sorting out my schedule! This has been getting thoroughly out of hand. It vaguely came back into line…for all of a week! I’ve been slacking a bit, or just generally being lazy. I’ve not kept to getting everything done on a Saturday – I generally get the videos recorded and pictures taken, but I’m not getting all the editing done. I generally find myself editing the vlog to get sorted for Sunday and I get Monday’s posts sorted too. Although in recent weeks the Monday posts are going up on a Tuesday. I’ve just let it all slide! I need to get a routine that works for me in place. I hate spending my evenings editing and scheduling instead of spending what little time I have with my husband! I think I need to clear up my life schedule generally, it’s too full. So sorting that out too!
Skills are slowly improving. I even did some reversing on a clip recently! I’m also doing more editing on the photos front, so hopefully you’ve noticed some improvements? I hope! I’m going to continue polishing my skills. This month though I’m adding on my makeup skills! I’m going to start more special effects or at least more avant garde looks – expect a Hallowe’en tutorial soon!
Name Change! This is the most exciting change for me this month! The name change from Áine Beauty to Honestly Áine! This means getting the domains switched over everywhere – on the blog, on instagram (already happened), on twitter and on youtube! Of course that means anywhere I’ve manually entered my links, I have to change all those locations too! So it’s going to be a fair bit of work, so I really do need to get my schedule in order, just so I don’t drown in the work!
I entirely over shot my goals last month, so this month I’m reining it in in the hope that I can accomplish these few goals. On another note however I am reading more blogs and commenting, which has been lovely getting to know more bloggers. I’ve also attended a few more events, most recently the Beauty Bloggers Awards – expect a post soon! I’m also posting more regularly too, so that’s another goal accomplished. So I managed about 4 of my goals from last month! Here’s hoping I manage the same this month.
What are your aims for October? Any goals you really want to reach? What exciting plans have you got coming up?
