31 Days of Betterment


Introducing the tartelette 2 in bloom palette – featuring 12 brand new, never-before-seen shades.

It’s October! Where in the world is time rushing to? I’ve stumbled across The Nesters Write for 31 Days challenge before, and never participated. This year I decided to join in. I wasn’t too sure what I wanted to focus on, because to be honest I’ve got a lot going on that I’d love to improve.For my challenge I decided to call it Betterment. What am I improving or what needs fixing? Well I’d love to get my TWA back on track and also adjust my diet to be healthier and get more exercise in. As well, there are goals I’ve had that I needed time to focus on. Overall betterment is what I am after, and I think a nifty journaling of my 31 days would be helpful.


This post will act as the main index for all the posts that will fall in the 31 Days of Betterment. While I may not post every single day here to the blog itself, I will keep an active journal and I do plan to post my notes when I create a post. So for example I may post tomorrow, and then post again on Tuesday/Wednesday (in-which that post would chronicle everything from Sat up until that point as far as my challenge/task for each day was concerned).


Hair Related:

  • more moisture
  • a plan for real winter care
  • regular deep treatments
  • figuring out a good gel for my TWA


  • exercising more often (at-least 3x a week)
  • getting acne and scars under real control
  • improving my dieting (+ eliminate dairy as much as possible)
  • Bible Journal – it’s new to me, but I am going to start journaling my bible as I study it and such

  • create my dream biz plan

Ok, I’m really looking forward to this month, and I’m sure I’ll be pushing a few of these goals/things to do way beyond just the 31 days, simply because they are things I’d love to continue to see happen in my life.

Are you doing any challenges?

  1. No challenges at the moment, I want to make sure that I will have the time to dedicate before taking one on…

  2. I love this, I have lots of blog goals but I want to focus on my hair. I’m growing it out and I want to make sure I’m really taking care of it. With the change of weather I need to get a solid routine going for myself and my daughter. We need our ends clipped, deep conditioning and some more stuff.

  3. I love the way you broke down your “betterment” goals into 3 categories. Keep up the drive and I’m sure you will accomplish your goals :)

  4. This is a cool challenge! Pretty much like a to-do-list for the month of October. I find that to-do-lists are helpful and once you write it down it’s easy to get it done versus having so much in your head that sometimes you forget things. Stay focused and you will meet your goals.

  5. Just found your site and I love it! I have a lot of the same goals.. I’m trying to start them now so that by the time New Years is here I’m already ahead of the resolutions curve. The gym is still a struggle lol
