August Here I Come!
The first Friday of the month I will do a fun post looking back on the previous month and setting goals for the new month!
What a month! We had a long weekend for July 4th holiday. My mom had a family BBQ on the 1st, my cousin drove down from VA to attend and surprise my mom. I had so much fun visiting with my cousin (she stayed with us). She and I went to Maple View Farm for ice cream, a first for me.
The following weekend we had a BBQ for a co-worker of B’s where I made a signature cocktail LemonBerry Whiskey. The BBQ was a hit and everyone had fun! I love throwing a good BBQ.
The next weekend we went to Savannah. You can read all about our trip here and here. We were in Savannah for 3 nights. We went to Tybee Island, ate amazing food, and walked so much! Where it was a great trip I was glad to get home and have a day at home before going back to work. i.e. a Vacation from my Vacation lol
Of course the Nordstrom Sale started during July! I bought my entire Fall wardrobe! I honestly don’t expect to purchase anything else this year. So how will I bring you good fashion content if I don’t shop? Well I will show you the many ways to wear your fall and summer wardrobe together, the many ways you can restyle items, and hopefully give you a concept of a classic staple closet.

August begins with my Birthday! 38 here I am! Wow, so close to 40.
I am starting the new year with a new hair style. I am getting a cut today with my favorite stylist as a B-Day present to myself. Then after I have to get my driver license renewed. I will be glad to get rid of my terrible picture lol.
1. Save Money. We want to purchase a home this year, but need to get a few things financially in order. I want August to be the month this happens.
2. Get more organized. With School and the Service League starting back up I want to stay on top of my responsibilities. My grades weren’t the best this past Spring semester. I will work harder to get those A’s.
3. Focus on the direction of Wine & Couture. I want to bring the best content I can. Hopefully increase readership. Also, to find the best way to utilize social media. Maybe I will take a class on these items. Who knows.
What are your goals for August?
