My 5 New Year’s Resolutions

Hi guys! With New Year’s Eve just a few days away I’ve been thinking of the things I want to change/work on for 2017. I think it is important to set goals for yourself and keep the list short to fully commit and actually achieving them. Some of the things on my list I have been working on since October (that’s just something I do every year, keeps me motivated). But I want to share my 5 main ones that are not as personal and I believe everyone should respond for themselves:

  1. A bad habit I’m going to break:


2. I’m going to do better at:


3. A new skill I will learn:


4. I’ll do more of this:


5. I’ll do less of this:


Every year I ask myself these 5 Key Questions days before the year ends.  I believe if you master these, the core of your year will be stronger and it will be easier to tackle the rest of the things you wish to accomplish! So don’t over think it, you already know what you need to work on. Just answer these 5 easy questions for yourself and a little tip? Set your mind to accomplish No. 1 by the end of January. Why such a short time? Because this will probably be the one you don’t even want to think of, let alone start working on. Breaking a bad habit is not easy but tackle it first and the rest will be more likely to get done after this. So set a short time period to get it done, of course you can adjust depending on the difficulty of the task but you get my point!

The rest are things you can work on through out the year. Remember its a Lifestyle you are looking to create for yourself so it will take every day of the year to work on. These are thing you want in your life right?  So enjoy the process, fall in love with the results you’re getting and soon it won’t feel like an added effort.






Also for some reason I always love wearing white a few days before the year ends and few days into the new one. There’s something about this color that makes me want to be productive all day and keeps my spirits high! It’s a small, simple thing but I’ve been doing it every year since I was 16 and it’s always worked for me. So find whatever works for you and make it a tradition! For this post I am wearing this cute ruffled dress from Make Me Chic.  I love this website! They have lovely clothes at very affordable prices 🙂 Go check them out, they have beautiful pieces and it’s always great to fins new places to shop right? Let me know how you liked it!!

 I really loved wearing this dress! It is true to size and so comfortable to wear. I hope you guys liked it as much as I did <3 Take a look on their website to see more of their beautiful dresses! On a more personal note, I think this year I will focus more on me. I love my life but I tend to get caught up on everyday things and get easily sidetracked, but this next year I want to change that and not feel selfish about it for once. I think it’s a healthy choice!  <3  I really hope you meet your goals too! And I’m wishing a year full of wonderful surprises for all of you, to stay motivated and have a very happy new year!!!!
