October Blogging Challenge | 2016


Hey Everyone!

Happy October! Man, I am glad the Summer is over and we are into everyone’s favourite season.

To be honest with you all, I was lacking inspiration for my blog. I needed something different and interesting to keep both you and myself intrigued. I found this challenge on Pixiebeautybible and I instantly knew I had to do it.

I am 2 days late with the challenge, but that is okay, I will make up for it. On top of this challenge, I will be posting makeup/beauty related posts 2-3 times a week. If you were missing my posts, well you are in for a treat πŸ˜‰

Down below is the challenge, feel free to take it! And if you do this challenge, let me know πŸ™‚


October Goals

The first day of the challenge wasΒ October Goals. I don’t have a whole lot, but if I had to narrow it down, they would be:

  • Blog more (which will be a given with this challenge)
  • Read at least 6 books (If there are any you recommend, please let me know)
  • Social media break (this is a whole other post)
  • Workout a minimum 3 days a week
  • Find my wedding dress

As you can see, there is a combination of different things this month. When it comes to blogging, my ultimate goal is to create posts that I am passionate about and I am not just posting to post. I want to take the extra time when it comes to editing and put more detail into each photo I take. That is my long-term goal for this blog, so I hope you can see the difference as time goes by.


I don’t normally take OOTD, so I will just post this picture from last week. I was loving my choker and you may notice that I wear that coral shirt a lot. It’s one of my faves!

p.s. who doesn’t love a good snapchat filter? πŸ˜‰



The Story Behind The Blog Name

Oh, this one made me laugh. There is honestly no story behind the name. I am probably the least creative person when it comes to thinking of an unique name. I didn’t think my blog would become what it is today, so I probably should have thought of something a bit better, but eh, whatever.

However, if you followed me when I first started out, this blog had nothing to do with makeup or anything beauty related. I was posting stories that had to do with my life and I guess that makes sense as to why I called my blog “The Life of Kristyn”.

Maybe I will change it one day….

From this day on, each day will be an individual post. I just needed to do some catch up!

Again, please let me know if you decided to partake in this challenge. I would love to read your answers!

Thank you for reading!

  4. The goal of reading 6 books in a month – holy cow! If you want a quick but a good read, I recommend Bossypants by Tina Fey.
    I was curious about your blog name – makes sense you did general stories about your life rather than beauty focused. It’s a good name because you can post whatever you want!
    Good luck with the wedding dress shopping…


    • To be fair, I can read a good book within a day or two, so I set my goal high haha. I will take a look at the one next time I got to Chapters.
      I want to change my blog name so badly, but there is nothing that is jumping out at me…I want something more unique.
