Whew… I can’t believe were ending another month! I know I say this for every edit, but this year is seriously flying by! I can’t believe Summer is coming to an end and we’re heading in to pre-fall! I’m not going to lie, I’m ready for Fall! I have tons of Fall content planned and I cannot wait to share Fall outfits, Fall Beauty, and more. 

With these monthly roundups, I like to share things that I didn’t cover on the blog and July has been a very BUSY month. During the month of July, I have been working on organization. Last week, I did not utilize my time as well as I should have and I did not feel productive at all. I have invested in a couple of tools to help with my organizational skills as far as the blog is concerned. 

I understand that it’s still Summer and most of us do not want Summer to end, but honestly I’m ready for Fall! I mentioned that on Instagram Stories a couple of weeks ago and I’m just so ready for it! I’ve already started Fall shopping and I cannot wait to share looks for the blog!

I plan to hire a Fall intern (I will share more details later) because I really need the help. Working full time and blogging full time tends to be a lot of work. I think it’s time to make the invest in the help for my brand. I hired an intern for the Summer but that didn’t work out. I don’t really want to go in to detail about the situation, but maybe I will share at a later date. One of the great things about being a business owner, is that everything is a learning lesson. 

What you didn’t see on the blog is that I attended my big brothers baby shower!! Guys, I’m so excited for my niece to come in the world late Summer! It was so great to be around friends and family to celebrate a huge milestone in my brothers life. 

I haven’t mentioned this yet on social or the blog, but I am thinking about moving! Well I am going to move, just not at this very moment. Ideally, I will like to have a new place late Fall early Winter. This is a pretty big deal for me because this will be my first apartment outside of college living and I’m pretty excited for this new chapter in my life. I have been looking around and trying to figure out which area is going to be the best for me. I will most definitely keep you guys updated with this process! 

Lastly, are you guys subscribed to my YouTube channel? If not, you can subscribe here! I have been vlogging a lot over on my YouTube channel and I’m almost at 400 subs! I recently purchased a new vlogging camera so I have been capturing lots of moments there. I also create beauty content every now and then so definitely check it out. 

That is it for July’s Edit! I will see you guys next month!

    Hey Nicole. You are doing well to be working full time and running your blog. You are doing it, feeling overwhelmed happens to the best of us. Enjoyed this post. I am not on Youtube because they won’t let me comment on anyone without making a page…Geez so I watch people when I can. I will watch your videos to support you so keep going. I may have to make that account so I can at least be apart of communities. Sometimes people never know you are rooting for them if we never comment sometimes. Yes, I am ready for Fall..this Texas heat has lost its mind.
    Have a good day!
