January Wrap Up

lifeupdate-09-02

Wow, guys, we are already 31 days into 2018! Am I the only one who felt that this month has taken super LONG. It is still January today lol tomorrow is FINALLY February. This has been a truly exceptional month for me. My bullet journal is flowing nicely. My habit tracker and mood tracker look so nice filled in and I feel so accomplished about it. Work has been busy but really good so that means I get paid very nicely lol. I have been keeping up with my movies & shows. I read some great books this month and I just got an Amazon haul in the mail (Batman, Labyrinth Lost, Vengeance Road, Retribution Rails, and I preordered Daughter of the Siren Queen so, I get some swag.) Plus my friend Brandy sent me Tell the Truth, SHame the Devil, Cloaked in Shadow, and The Wicker King. And, my two best friends are sending me some surprise book gifts as well. I started working on my art goals and I completed my January art project (see below) and I am working on a smaller collage piece. As far as bucket list goals, I am practicing my driving, I workout every day, it is 100% about the cruise, and I am also visiting my home state in June I found out. I also joined Amanda Foody’s street team as a Dove member for her book Ace of Shades coming in April. It is so fun and I have made great friends. I have done blog posts, aesthetics, graphics, and makeup looks (the first one is below it is an assassin inspired look with influences from my cultures ancestors Taino Indians.)

 

Guys I had such a good blogging month. It’s not even about the stats I just feel really good about my month of blogging. Everything has been on schedule. I have read some great books and have some great reviews coming this year. Also, I just feel the growth of my blogging and bookstagram skills each month so this is all exciting for me. I am going to break down the month a little bit so let’s see how I did, shall we? I have written 15 blog posts (including this one) this month. My stats for the month (excluding today) are 763 views, 323 visitors, 312 likes, 195 comments, and views from 37 different countries. I also reached 233 followers so I am super happy. I continue to grow each month so this is truly inspiring for me.

The Best Thing I Did This Month: I didn’t do anything big this month

  1. I love how you did an entire wrap-up of the month!! It’s fun seeing everything you did for the month plus digging all the stats. I know I already told you this but love your dove make-up look. I’m super excited to see what Febraury’s will be.
