Small Goals // August.


Long time no small goals! I'm hoping to get back on track and a great last full month of summer. I head back for my last year of my undergrad on September 12th (eek!), so I need to get some things done while I can!

1 // Relax at my cousin's wedding. 
This weekend my cousin is getting married to his girlfriend of many years-- and she also just so happens to be one of my favorite people. I'm doing her and others' makeup for the event and am already stressing a bit. I'd like to remain calm during the whole prep time, but also allow myself to have a good time and not be so self aware during the reception. Here's hoping!

2 // Consign or donate my clothes. 
I have a laundry basket full of clothes I want to sell, although I have no idea what to do with them. I'm had some lacklustre experiences selling to ThredUp (a gigantic bag stuffed to the brim and only $10? Really!?) and the thought of Poshmark is daunting within itself. I'm thinking I'll try some in my area, but nonetheless I'd like to get it done!

3 // Limit my Diet Coke to one (or none) a day. 
Pretty self explanatory-- just needs to be done!

4 // Limit fast food to twice a week. 
Also self explanatory and seriously sad that I have made this such a bad habit.

5 // Work out 10 times total. 
If you couldn't tell, August is get fit month for me! I haven't been in the habit or working out in a million years, so twice a week is even a lofty goal for me. I'm hoping I can get my butt in gear and make my health a larger part of my life!

Striped Intentions is laying on your bed, soaking in the sunlight. It's the shadows made by the blinds, lined up and down the sheets. It's wearing a striped shirt every day and not giving a damn. It's the constant search for "effortless chic"-- whatever that is-- and taking care of what you present to the world.
Too, Striped Intentions is a place to feel at home. No matter what you look like or feel like or do with your life, it's a space to appreciate life and all it's tiny details. It's having the best intentions with everything-- as striped with flaws as they may be.
