Do you all make New Year’s resolutions? It’s something I do every year. I really love the idea of reflecting on the past year, planning for the future, and setting goals for a fresh start.
My resolutions this year are a mix of small improvements and bigger goals for myself. I hope I can remain motivated enough to reach them and I hope you all can hold me accountable! 🙂
Read more. I go through phases with reading. Sometimes I devour several books in a row, and then sometimes I seem to forget how much I love it. If you have any good book recommendations, I would absolutely love to hear them!
Print my photos and make albums. I think this will be a fun one! I want to be better at documenting my life and keeping memories. I plan to go through my photos every two or three months, print my favorites, and put them in a cute photo album. It will be so cool to see everything in one place.
Make a detailed budget. I am not new to making budgets, but they have always been loosely structured. This year my goal is to make a more detailed budget that includes everything, and then refer back to it regularly to check up on myself.
Travel. Honestly, traveling is a little bit out of my comfort zone. I don’t do very much of it, except for work trips. One of my plans for 2018 is to take a trip that is just for fun. I don’t know where yet; I’ve thought a girls’ cruise might be fun, or Canada during the summertime, and I’d also like to visit New England sometime… I just want to travel somewhere that is new and exciting!
Introduce a new section of my blog. This year I’ll be introducing a new “lifestyle” section of my blog! When I began this blog in April, I thought it would be strictly fashion. But I have gotten a few questions from readers about my hair, skincare routine, and fitness/exercise. I’d also love an opportunity to occasionally share recipes or talk about home decor, two of my other favorite creative outlets. So I figured a lifestyle section could encompass all of that. I would SO appreciate hearing your thoughts on this. Let me know what else you’re interested in reading about. I love hearing from you all!
As always, thanks so much for reading!
