Stay updated on the latest happenings.
June was quite busy and I was terribly sick! Zack and I went to a cookout and had lunch with my influencer friends. I painted my office on the new color scheme. And Zack installed a ceiling fan in my office. June was way too hot and there was hardly any air flowing in my office. I borrowed a window unit from Zack’s coworker to help, but I was pretty much sticking to my chair in the afternoons. And it’s only going to get hotter this summer!
I hit a couple of my monthly goals, which always feels good. You can find my original list of my goals here: #22in2022.
I got to visit the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas. I had lunch at the opening of Anaya’s Seafood and I attended brunch as JJs Cafe in Dallas with DSI. My friend and I attended the Mad Hatter Tea Party at the beginning of the month.
LTK: I worked on Fourth of July sales, but I haven’t been focusing on it and I didn’t push it. June had 519 clicks and $1.40 open commissions.
I changed my logo, but am still exploring colors for my rebrand. I didn’t realize this would be so difficult for me. I wrote ten posts, which is awesome! I also participated a lot in the engagement groups, but I overwhelmed myself and stopped. I also tried to be creative with a weekly email series, but it was a lot of work for something that I didn’t create a strategy for. Oops on me for trying to do everything.

I started adding these snippets on my Instagram account in April, so I think I will be adding a section about my income. I’ve been keeping a spreadsheet to track my blog goals and I’ve been recording the income from LTK, Poshmark, Thredup, Rakuten and any other platforms that I am making money from.
We have to diversify our income streams, right?
This is a screenshot from my spreadsheet. I finally received payment for two Thredup boxes I sent in January and February. It takes a really long time for them to process, but even if they don’t sell the items, you have an option to donate or take back your unwanted items.
I try to sell my items on Poshmark first, then send a box to ThredUp.
HOVEL SWEET HOVEL
The front yard got a little uplift with some brickwork. We added a flower bed in the front of the house and a circle around the tree. We’ve been waiting since March (I think) to have this installed and it was finally done!
I started and finished painting my office. Since I painted it blue last year, it took almost three coats of primer to cover it. Once I was done painting, Zack installed a ceiling fan. We plan on installing a ceiling fan in the other spare room, but we will hold off on that project for now.
Since I was sick, I was not working out too much. After I started feeling better, then I picked up and tried to get back to a daily schedule. On 6/15 I finished the 5th round of the Bora Bora Bootcamp series. I only had one workout left, which is crazy to me that I left it like that from 5/12. An entire month and I couldn’t finish one workout!
I also completed the Road Trip United States Walking Challenge.
