My Goals For Fall

My Goals For Fall

My Goals For FallI’ve never been a big fan of new years eve. I hate the big hype around it and then when it actually comes around, I’m like: That’s it?? I feel much more passionate about the fall: The change in season and seeing the leaves turn color, the sweater weather, the coziness of drinking hot apple cider while watching an HBO show – ahh it warms my heart just thinking about that! As today is the first day of fall I wanted to kick it off with setting a few goals and participating in the B Bar Blog Linkup.

The List

Keep up my workout routine: As soon as the summer ends it tends to go downhill with my exercise regiment. You better believe I’ll be eating all the pumpkin pie and cranberry jelly I can find – BUT! I do want to need to continue to stay strong and active – even if it’s too cold to go outside… I. MUST. WORK. OUT.

Budget: The fall is EXPENSIVE. From the pumpkin related activities, social gatherings to halloween and fall festivals, it can be overwhelming on my wallet. That’s why I want to list out all of my expenses at the beginning of each month and have a good understanding of what I get to spend on the fun stuff – I’m looking at you Sephora and EVERYTHING ZARA!

Blog, blog, and blog: So far I’ve been consistent with posting twice a week and want to keep it that way until my one year mark in March of next year. However my goal is to post three times a week here and there this upcoming season. That way I can see how well I’m able to manage it while also trying (emphasis on trying) to have a life. I have a plethora of ideas swimming around in my head and I’m excited to bring them to life!

Photography Skills: I didn’t have a professional camera when I started my blog back in March. Now looking back on my first few posts I cringe looking at the composition, color balance and overall lack of crispness in the pictures. But like with anything, this has been a big huge learning experience. I upgraded to a DSLR and am finally getting to feel more comfortable with all the settings that it has to offer. My goal is to flesh out my photography aesthetic further and get better at composition and the big mama jama: PHOTOSHOP. Taking it one blog post at a time….

With any goals that I set, I try to keep them simple and not overwhelm myself with too many. I’d rather have four goals and accomplish all of them than have ten and only get one done. It’s funny how you can tell that the whole world around you is energized and ready to take on any challenges after a good summer vacation. It motivates me to do the same and tackle anything that stands in my way. The creative juices come pouring out of me with a sense of determination and excitement to enjoy the upcoming months. Here’s to the comfortable and cozy season ahead!

  • I love your idea to minimize your goals to not get overwhelmed. I too try to take on too much then just getting none of them done! Good luck with your fall!

    • I know, it’s so tricky to take on more goals than what we can handle! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great fall as well :) x- Victoria

  • Fall is the perfect time to work on Photography, especially with all the colors. You should check out Adobe Lightroom for editing. It makes batch editing easy, and it is great for bloggers!

    • I agree, the colors outside right now are GORGEOUS. Thanks for the tip on Lightroom. I was kind of confused what the difference is among all of the Adobe Programs so I’ll have to look into it! x – Victoria

  • I feel ya on needing to work on photography! It’s always a learning process, but since you’ve gotten a DSLR I guarantee you’ll see such great quality in your photos. Also so much sympathy for needing to budget: I can’t wait to update my wardrobe for fall, but I’ll probably have to do that boring adult thing of budgeting.

    • I couldn’t agree more with you on trying to update my wardrobe and wanting to buy everything, rather than realizing what I still have from last year. I guess I should pull out my fall / winter clothes from under the bed :) x- Victoria

  • I completely agree with you on keeping my list of goals manageable! I admire your focus on photography. I tell myself I’m going to improve on it, but I can’t seem to make much progress. Any tips?!

    • Honestly, I’ve been watching Youtube videos to better understand my camera settings and then just practice practice practice. The more I blog the better I feel with it. In regards to composition I try to find inspiration from magazines, interior design blogs and pinterest. A combination of those things makes it easier for me to visualize what I want to achieve with my blog. I hope this helps! x – Victoria

  • Too many goals can make your head spin and you lose focus! Love that you’re narrowing it down to a few, and keeping them achievable.

    • Thanks! It’s difficult to just keep it at a few goals because I could certainly list more :) – Taking it slow but steady with it! Thanks for stopping by! x- Victoria
