Thoughts & My Blogging Goals For The Rest Of 2016

Hey y'all I have recently been doing a lot of reflecting about things that have been going on in my life. I don't if it's the time of year, my internship, or what but things have been getting me thinking. So today I just wanted to sit down and share where I am at with you and what my blogging goals are for the rest of 2016.  

I was looking through old blog posts from last summer this evening and I graduated from high school one year ago from this weekend. It's a funny thing to think about because part of me feels like it was forever ago since I was in high school. Though the other part of me feels like it was just recently that I received my diploma and started a new chapter of my life. I did so much in just one year of college that it almost feels longer then a year. I also would have never imagined that I would be sitting in Baltimore hours away from home living on my own this summer. If someone would have told me last year when I graduated that I would be interning in Baltimore for the summer I probably would not of believed them. So far my internship has been ALOT of work as you can probably tell from my lack of posting. Though this job has also already taught me so many things. Not only about the hospitality field but about myself. It's given me a better understanding of my interests, likes, and dislikes. 

I have also been thinking more about Melchicmay recently and I guess I get frustrated because from the outside looking in it may seem like I am lacking in passion for the blog. When in fact it's the complete opposite of that. I have more passion then ever it's just the lack of time and energy. I recently realized that I love blogging not just because I want to share my latest outfit or opinion I like it because it's essentially like running your own business. I do EVERYTHING for  Melchicmay and I think that's part of the reason I love blogging so much. So without blabbering on too much more I have decided to create some goals of things I want to accomplish with Melchicmay before the end of 2016! I thought I would share these goals with you to make me more accountable to actually fulfill them.  

1. Host a giveaway every month | I really love hosting giveaways because it allows me to give back to all of you who read my blog so starting in July I am going to try and host a giveaway once a month whether it be with another company or just from me!

Current Favorites

I hope everyone is doing well! Today I thought I would share with you some of my current favorites of the moment. They are things I have recently been loving since I moved to Baltimore. I recently have finally been having a little bit of free time to hopefully start blogging more frequently. I have really just been trying to enjoy my days off as much as I can. My grandparents came to visit for a day this past weekend and Monday I am going to the beach on my day off which I am really excited about. Work can be quite tiring that my days off are so important.  Anyways I hope to do a video soon for something a bit different as well as more "life" posts! I hope everyone is having a good weekend. 

1. Hempz Goji Orange Lemonade Body Whip: I recently ran out of body lotion and decided to give this a try. I have only been using it for about a week but I am in love with it. The scent smells SO good and the lotion goes on smooth without feeling super sticky.
