Starting fresh …
It already feels like summer over here, which gives me an extra motivation boost for all the plans I have for the month of May.
As you can easily spot, I gave my blog a little “makeover”. After not being present, neither here nor on my Instagram. I finally found the inspiration I needed to get my s**t together and back into the creative mood. And with summer slowly (or not so slowly) approaching, it’s time to tackle my to-do list and set some goals for the new month.
1: Introduce blogging back into my everyday life. After my super long break, I feel ready to get back on the blogging bandwagon. After feeling unmotivated and uninspired I finally sought out what is important to me, when it comes to blogging. I don’t have a ton of things planned for Ilka Elise B. But I want to make it a point to every so often share my thoughts, personal goals, and current loves as well as everyday-girl lifestyle things. Read more about the new chapter of IEB here.
2: Tackle further home/furniture arrangements. We moved into our new home almost 3 months ago. But it still lacks a lot of decorations and even some furniture pieces. I know that realistically I won’t get the apartment ready this month. However, I want to at least tackle some of the home bits from my to-do list. Such as organizing the shelves in the living room, hang the gallery wall, finally decide on a dining room bench (the list is endless).
2: Improve my Running. As we now live in the countryside, close to a lake. J and I started to go for casual runs, once or twice per week. We have a really beautiful route for running in front of our house. It’s a little over 5k with the lake at one side and woods to the other. But with summer approaching soon, I want to challenge myself and make myself go for not two but three runs per week. I’m already exhausted thinking about it, but it’s such a good exercise which helps me strengthen my lung power and overall endurance.
Again, happy May and welcome back. I hope you enjoyed my first monthly goals post. This month is going to be awesome and I can’t wait to share it with you. Ilka x
I am so happy and excited you’re back, Ilka! I can’t wait for all the posts you’re going to publish (here on your blog as well as on your instagram) and I so hope you’re going to have the best month! (Also, good luck on your running goal. YOU GOT THIS GIRL!)
Thank you so so much, Malena 🙂
Haha, yea. I really missed posting (on the blog and ‘Gram) and I’m so happy I’m back.
I’ll keep you posted on how well I stick to my running goal, haha. As it’s hay fever season and I’m currently kinda dying. ✨
