5 Girl Boss Habits To Build This Year

girl-boss-habits

If you know anything about me, then you know that I’m a Type-A overachiever who wants everything to be perfect all the time. But although that’s what I WANT, the reality is, I’m usually a hot mess.

I struggle with deadlines, my inbox gets ridiculously flooded, and don’t even get me started on what my desktop looks like! I skip the gym more times that I’m proud to say, and I have a pretty good relationship with my snooze button.

There are so many things that I want to accomplish so I feel like this year I need to step it up a notch and focus on building some girl-boss habits.

Adulting 101: Cleaning Hacks With Clorox Bleach

Thank you, Clorox, for sponsoring today’s post and sharing these cleaning hacks with us! As always, all opinions are my own.

Okay, let’s be honest here, who’s having a hard time with this whole adulting thing?!

I know I can’t be the only one.

Joe and I have officially been living in our new house for a whole year now, and no, this whole cleaning thing hasn’t gotten a lot easier.

I was used to having to clean a two bedroom apartment. That, I could deal with. But as much as I love our 4-bedroom house, dude- there’s something new to clean every second I turn around!

And this, my friends,  is where Clorox® Regular-Bleach comes in handy.

I used to think that bleach was only something you used when you stained a white shirt or something.

But turns out, there’s a ton of different things you can clean with bleach, and that makes my heart happy because I only need ONE product to get all this stuff done.

So here are a few different uses for bleach that you may not have heard of.

Alright you guys, raise your hand if you’re an Amazon Prime member! 🙋🏽

Dude, I don’t know where I’d be without it.

I order EVERYTHING from Amazon and I love it because I never have to go to the store!

I hop on the computer, click a button, and two days later, my stuff’s at the door.

God, I love technology.

But did you know that students get a 50% discount on Prime membership?! Did ya? Did ya?

Well, now you do, and it’s called Amazon Prime Student!

At least there’s ONE benefit of still being in school.

2016 Blog Income Report

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog income report, but 2016 was a good year, so I figured I’d let you know how I did.

Alright so the last blog income report I posted was several months back where I shared my income for April- June of 2016. And then it looks like I took a six month break from these reports because there really aren’t enough hours in the day, ya know?!

But since I started prepping for tax season this past week, I finally got my shit together and took a look at this year’s numbers.

$15,476 – that’s what I made this year off of my blog. Crazy, right?

No I didn’t make six figures, but you know what?! I made $5,327 more than I did last year, and I’m really proud of  that.

For those of you who don’t know already, blogging isn’t my full time job. It’s totally a side-hustle right now. During the day I work at BlackDog doing creative stuff that I love, and on my off hours, I blog.

So an extra $15,000 this year from side hustling my ass off? I’ll take it!
