Monthly Challenges March 2017

Spring is just around the corner and so is the purchase of our house! for my March monthly challenges, I’m embracing the new beginning to try a little self-improvement that (in my mind) is long overdue.

30 days of Hairstyles

I have always been jealous of the girls who know how to do things with their hair. 99.9% of the time mine ends up in a messy ponytail to keep it out of reach of grabby hands when I’m on behavior calls with my students. That being said I know plenty of women who manage to maintain a balance of beauty and function when it comes to their hair… this month I’m hoping to become one of them.

Morning Routine

I’m planning to use this month do develop a morning self-care routine. Right now I have a lot of things that I do inconsistently and a lot of things that I want to try. My plan is to use this month to try them out and develop a routine that is suited to me. I know that consistent routines are an important part of keeping me from feeling overwhelmed and I’m looking forward to using my space (in our place!) to find the balance I need.

Are you an expert at doing hair?  Do you have a morning routine you love? Shout out with any advice you have in the comments.



Monthly Challenges: January 2017

As part of my ongoing effort to be more intentional with my life and my choices, I’ve decided to participate in several positive lifestyle challenges. I chose two challenges to kick off the new year, each focusing on a different area of my life.

30 x 31 Capsule Wardrobe

Inspired by project 333, I chose 30 pieces of clothing to wear for the month of January. These 30 pieces will be the basis of my wardrobe at my full-time job, volunteering, and my part-time work. I did not include workout clothes or pajamas in the 30 pieces. I have a fairly well-curated closet already but I liked the idea of a challenging myself to remix new pieces and really determine the value I get from each of the pieces I own.

30 Days to Splits 

I’ve had my eye on this challenge from Blogilates forever now, but have yet to get around to doing it. I love yoga for the calming effect it has on my mind, but I would really like to start pushing myself more to increase my flexibility.  I know from past experience that these Blogilates monthly challenges pack a punch, so I hoping to emerge from January feeling a little more flexy.
