5 Tips for a Magical Disney World Vacation

Monthly Life Update: July 2023

Stay updated on the latest happenings.

Monthly Life Update: July 2023: I was really excited planning our trip, but I got a little carried away. I didn’t take time to rest and hurt my lower back. At the end of the month I had to take a few days off my workout schedule and get to the chiropractor a couple times to get adjusted.

July Goals Progress


I finished the amount of blog posts, but I’m behind on reading books. We went to Disney World this month, so that counted as another 3-day weekend trip. I’m on par for everything except my reading list! I just started another book Spare by Prince Harry, so I hope I get into it.

I was enrolled in a $300 campaign on weSponsored, but there was an error with one of the submissions on the app. I only received $275 for completing it and the other $25 I’m waiting to hear back from customer service about.

I made a few random sales through the Nordstrom sale, so that is why my commissions are so high this month.

LTK: July had 2,027 clicks and $359.10 in open commissions.


I’ve been doing a lot of back end work on the website trying to reformat images, edit sizes so they’re consistent and organize a couple of content strategies.

July 2023 Side Hustle Income


I sold a few items on Poshmark, but I haven’t been marketing a lot of it on Instagram. I did clean out my entire closet and did a massive upload to Pinterest and to Instagram on the last day of the month. I ran out of hangers and decided that I needed to sell more things instead of buying more hangers.


I completed the Dog Days of Summer Challenge both Walking and Running programs. I restarted the Bora Bora bootcamp because I love the short 20-minute bursts of working out. I did pretty well in miles, but I started slowing down at the end of the month.

Total Miles: 33.7
Total Hours: 10:07:08
Total Workouts: 24

Until next time!
