March Goals + February Recap

 March Goals + February Recap // The Geeky Fashionista

I’M BACKKKK!!! After nearly 2 relaxing weeks in Australia, I am back in the good ol’ US of A! I know this post is going up late in the month again, but I’ll balance it with just 4 short, hopefully somewhat easy March Goals. But first, let’s see how I did on my February Goals – keep on reading!

February Goals

Personal Goals

1. Continue to take some time for me – I like to think that a lot of my Australia trip was for me to have some “me” time. Being out in the country was such a nice change from the busy LA city life I’m used to and just what I needed during a volatile period of my life.
2. Change up my skincare routine – Yay!! I’m so happy with my new routine! I added a few Korean skincare products and my skin has been thanking me for it! My everyday routine used to be cleanser, toner, and moisturizer but now I’ve added an essence and moisturizer and my skin now feels so soft and supple and my random breakouts have minimized! I also switched out my longtime Bobbi Brown Extra Eye Repair Cream for the Innisfree Orchid Eye Cream, and I couldn’t be happier! I’ll probably do a future, more detailed post on the products I’m using later on so look out for that!

Blog Goals

1. Schedule posts for when I’m away in March  – Totally did not do this, the days leading up to my trip were super busy, and I never got around to doing any scheduling 🙁
2. Reach 1,100 Facebook followers – Woot!! I’m currently at 1,126!! Thank you all so much for following my page.  <3

March Goals

Personal Goals

1. Get a start on spring cleaning! – I’ve been meaning to make a trip to Goodwill for a while and with spring right around the corner, now’s the perfect time to get rid of some clutter!
2. Plan something special for my sister’s birthday – She reads my blog so I won’t say much here but my sister has always been the best when it came to surprising me on my birthday with something really thoughtful and sweet. I’d really love to do something special for her this year. 

Blog Goals

1. Post four times – I know it’s not a lot but seeing as how I’ll be gone most of the month and incredibly busy when I get back, if I can put up four posts up this month, I’ll be happy. 
2. Reach 1,800 Instagram followers – Instagram has been by far the most difficult social media platform for me to gain followers especially since I refuse to do the Follow/Unfollow method that seem to be so popular with bloggers these days. As a result of other bloggers using this method on myself, my numbers tend to fluctuate daily but I’d really love to see myself cross 1,800 and stay above there with genuine followers. If you’d like to help me reach my goal, I’d be so grateful if you followed me 🙂

What are your March Goals?

  • Robin Rue

    I need to get started on my spring cleaning, too! I have almost no motivation to start it this year, but I know I HAVE to get it done.

  • SK Allen

    so what are the Korean products you are using? I need to start taking care of my youthful appearance. it may be too late, but I dont want to look my age either.

  • Meredith Harrison

    Awesome post about your goals for the month. I find that writing them down makes me much more likely to actually accomplish them. I have been meaning to write down some blogging goals but have yet to get around to it, you have inspired me!! Also, if you are looking for some spring cleaning inspiration, check out my latest post 🙂

  • Jojo Vito

    Its nice to have goals. They can make us more focus on what we wanted to do and find out how we performed 🙂

  • Congrats on doing so well on your February goals! I hope you had a blast on your trip! Good luck on this month!

  • Great goals!! This is my first month working from home, so I had a few huge ones for myself this month 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  • Good luck on your March goals! You did great in February 🙂

  • Anvita – TheBellyRulesTheMind

    Good going!!! Keep it up. I am glad that i will be able to strike off a lot of my March goals too.

  • I didn’t schedule any posts during my vacation in March either. I had intended on it, but like you, things were so busy. Instagram is my hardest to grow as well. Good luck with March!

  • Amanda Zopp

    Love this! We need to start doing this on Salt and Life Blog. Congrats on your facebook followers & I totally know what you mean about Instagram followers. “Follow/Unfollow” creates numbers but not engagement. It might take longer, but it will be worth it. Good luck! Going to follow you now as Salt & Life Blog! Give us a follow back if you like 😉

  • Jeanine @

    You reminded me I have to schedule some posts for when I’m away. I’m going away the first week of April and then closer to the end of the month again. Such a great idea.

  • I agree that Instagram is hard but I am struggling with Facebook, too. Congratulations on meeting your goals, those others will come along!

  • Marcie in Mommyland

    I’m also not a fan of the follow/unfollow practice on Instagram. It bums me out. PS I’m so jealous you got to explore Australia!

  • Good on you for knocking so many goals out last month! Instagram’s been a bit iffy lately.. at least for me. I’ve noticed a much higher than usual follow/unfollow rate recently. So annoying.
    I hope you’ve had an amazing trip and good luck with your goals this month. 🙂

    Christie’s Take on Life. xx

  • I’m glad most of your goals have been reached for the last month. Plus you also enjoyed your trip so that’s double win! I agree about the Instagram follow/unfollow thing. Really very annoying.

  • Good on you for achieving your goals. I really need to get started on spring cleaning. xx

  • Nikki Arnold

    These are great goals!! I really need to start writing some monthly goals for myself as well and stick to them. Congrats!!

  • Lydia

    Good luck on your goals!! Totally jealous you got to go to Australia, too!

  • Sheila

    I love to read people’s goals and what a great sister you are for wanting to do something nice for your sister! Have a great time!

  • I’m so jealous you got to take a trip to Australia!! I bet it was amazing! I love using Korean skincare. What products are you currently using? Instagram is a hit or miss for me at times. I hate the follow/unfollow method. It’s a waste of everyone’s time, so bloggers just need to stop doing it. If you are interested I have created an Instagram pod for Life Style and Beauty bloggers. Let me know if you want to join!

  • It’s great that you are sticking to so many of your goals. I personally also always plan to schedule posts during travel but I never do. So much to do and so little time!

  • HilLesha

    I love reading about others’ goals as well! One of my top goals is working on SEO as well as expanding my follower base on Instagram.

  • Nicole Pharr

    Two weeks in Australia sounds amazing. Plus, you seem to be doing well with sticking with your goals. Also, instagram is definitely a tough one for me as well. I feel like I can’t win with growing organically on many of these platforms nowadays.

  • Your Australia trip sounds like the perfect Me Time!! So happy you had a chance to do it. I love how your goals are all attainable…kudos for getting to check off so many as done!

  • Frosted Events

    I love your list of goals! Sounds like you are having fun and doing great at staying on top of reaching them. Way to go! And I want to know more about how your new skincare routine measures up in a month or two. I need to switch mine up 🙂
