June in Review

June was the first truly hot month of the year here in New England and I absolutely loved it. The humidity was a bit of a pain, but I know that part will get so much worse throughout July and August. I'd complain, but I'm used to it by now. New England is rarely a dry place.

Anyways, June has been pretty good. The blog has been sort of quiet but I am hoping to change that for July. I'm hoping to get some more magical posts up and the like. 

My goals for the past month were...

Get back into my jewelry making swing.
Finish organizing my books.
Get my work out regime back on track.
Continue to focus on eating less sugar.

Look at that, I crossed out all four! Not that four things to accomplish is a whole lot of work, but still, I'm allowed to be proud of myself! I updated the shop with some pretty new pieces as well as a whole line of zodiac necklaces. I finally tackled the project that was organizing my books. I've also been working out everyday! The difference isn't terribly visible yet but I can tell that my legs are a tiny bit smaller and I am definitely feeling some muscle in my stomach. And to go with that I have also been a lot better about my sugar intake. I still indulged in some ice cream (it was 95F out, it's justified) but all over I have consumed less of it. I even have an awesome sugarless cookie recipe which satisfies my sweet tooth but doesn't do me in.

So, while I'm mulling over some goals for next month, what would you guys like to see in this space? I'll probably share my aforementioned cookie recipes, as well as some magic posts. But what do you like to see? I'd love to know.

  1. YAY, Manda!!! Crossing off goals is s-u-c-h a good feeling. I didn't make any in June, but I plan on making a few in July in preparation for my b-day. I really do love those zodiac necklaces. :D Outside of magickal posts, I love workout and healthy living posts and your personal posts. Those are what I come back for, and love. Oh and Tea Time, of course!!!

    1. I definitely want to do a health/fitness update sometime this month. Maybe in a few weeks :)

  2. Well done for crossing everything off, go girl!
    I honestly love all of your posts, especially your personal posts, goal posts, magical posts, tuesday teatime... ok, just everything!
