The end of the holiday season and heading into the new year is always my favorite and least favorite time of the year. Least favorite because it’s so hard to let the holiday season go and taking down Christmas, but also one of my favorites because I love a fresh start and getting motivated and goal setting for the year ahead. Being a goal-oriented girl, this time of year is always extremely motivating for me to help me stay on track and better myself every single year. However, just a couple years ago I really struggled sticking with my New Years resolutions past the end of January. But as I’ve gotten older, sticking with my resolutions has become super important to me and today I’ll be sharing some tips on how to stay on track if you tend to drop your resolutions past the first couple days/weeks of January.Continue reading “Why You May Not be Able to Stick With Your New Years Resolutions + How to Stay on Track”
2020, where do I even begin? Safe to say, none of us knew that 2020 would end up playing out the way that it did. It has definitely been a year for the history books, that’s for sure, and a year that many of us are so ready to leave behind. But was it all completely horrible? No! I’m very thankful for the good things that came out of this year and ready to dive into it a little more with you all today. So, grab a cup of coffee or tea, curl up on the couch and get cozy, and let’s dive into it! I wanted to mention here ahead of time that this post will be quite a bit longer than usual, but 2020 has definitely left me with some words and thoughts.Continue reading “2020 Year in Review + 2021 Resolutions”
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about setting personal goals, it’s that while it may seem very easy and achievable at first, it can also seem overwhelming or even impossible later on. I know most of us set new years resolutions every year and are super motivated to achieve them for the first couple days, but after those first couple days pass, we abandon them, and then repeat that cycle every year. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place! I absolutely love goal setting and pushing myself to become the best version of myself that I can be and wanted to share some of my tips and tricks on how to stay on track with personal goals and not abandon them.Continue reading “How to Stay on Track with Personal Goals”
Happy New Year! I cannot believe another decade, and year has already come and past and that it is now 2020. What a year 2019 has been! One thing I like to do at the end of each year is reflect on all that I’ve accomplished in that year, and then start to think about and plan out what I hope to accomplish in the new year.
It’s so hard to believe that another year has already come and gone, time sure does fly! As I look back on 2017, I think of all the memories and good times I had, and even the times that weren’t so good. I look back on the things that I can do better and can change.
That’s one of my favorite things about this particular holiday. A new year means a new you. Each New Years holiday, I think of everything that happened over the past year and what I can do differently in the next. To dream big, to set goals for yourself, and to stay motivated to achieve those goals.
As I start to look ahead into the new year, I know exactly what resolutions I’d like to achieve in 2018, two important things in life for a girl my age.
I am a total shopper and absolutely love shopping for the latest fashion trends and beauty looks, but of course I can’t live like that forever! I’ve decided to become more financially smart in 2018 and improve on my current spending habits. Finance is important, and me still being a college student prevents me from being able to afford a lot of things. My goal is to work harder in 2018 and be smarter about my finances.
Hitting the gym and improving my health. Like most, it is a goal of mine to improve my current fitness habits in the new year. As I look back on 2017, I spent the first half of the year following through with my fitness resolution from last new years. I attended yoga classes regularly and was on a regular schedule at the gym at my school. But once I came home from school for the summer, I never fully continued with my fitness routines. Which is why I am setting it as another resolution of mine this year. Fitness and health is important, especially as I am adulting, and I would really like to put myself back on a regular workout schedule. I’d even like to try some new fitness routines such as attending barre classes, attend a cycle class such as SoulCycle, or even get back into attending yoga classes again. I guess one thing that has prevented me from doing that is once again the financial aspect of such classes. Gym memberships are expensive! But with putting your money in the right place, fitness is always worth it.

And of course, Happy New Year!
