September was an awesome month – it was full of some big changes for me professionally and personally and I’m excited for what the future holds.
I needed September. I needed a win…a reminder as to why I spend my Sundays focused on Campfire Chic, why I spend time trying to connect with like-minded people via social media, and why I continue to try new things that scare the pants off of me.
You inspire me to keep doing these things. Even you lurkers out there. So thank you for another fantastic month! The numbers show that Campfire Chic’s reach continues to grow and the editorial calendar is getting pruned more and more as the months go on (because I’m looking at my February calendar right now — because I’m a crazyperson) to make sure I’m bringing you content that you care about. And new things for us to get excited about!
If you’re new to Campfire Chic, here are some of the posts from this past month:
I was able to share my new partnership with Fabletics - a new line of activewear by Kate Hudson. I think it’s a great option for many Campfire Chic readers — a whole outfit is about $50, which is bananas! The cuts are more in line with what real women look like, and the styles are more practical and simple rather than full of crazy patterns. I wrote up a review of the Lima Capri pants they have (I own two pairs now and will be getting more as new colors roll out each month) in case you’re wondering what they look like on a normal person).

If you’re interested in building your strength while having fun, I shared some tips for bouldering. It’s essentially rock climbing without the ropes! You don’t go as high up, you focus on power rather than endurance, and it’s a very empowering feeling knowing you’re so much stronger than you think.
So happy to talk a little more about hiking lately – the temperatures this summer made going out on the weekends out of the question. I went on a nice hike with some KEEN Footwear Ambassadors and reported on some of my favorite hiking snacks.
In addition to hiking and joining the Fabletics Masters, I got the awesome opportunity to co-host a Twitter Chat with the Sierra Trading Post Twitter team! I wrote a guest blog post for their blog and the next day spent an hour chatting about adding guided activities to your next vacation. It was so much fun!
I spent more time this month creating and documenting. I’m trying to get into the crafting spirit for the holidays because I feel a few projects coming on and want to get going on those. I shared some my Week in the Life photos and will be sharing even more once I get my Project Life layout done for that week. Speaking of, I shared 3 places to find PL inspiration, if you’re like me and sometimes get into a rut. I also posted some of my lists for 30 Days of Lists – which is extra fun this time around!
I turn 28 soon, so I gave an update to my 27 things to do before I turn 28 list. I need to get cracking on the others!
I got kind of serious about this whole brave thing – talking about celebrating victories and getting out of my comfort zone.
