HELLO 2019

Tuesday, January 15, 2019
Happy New Year!! Although I've taken a little bit of a break from blogging, vlogging and social media since the new year, I'm back!! I just needed some time to get back in the zone with moving back to school, starting classes, and alllllll that jazz. I'm in Savannah and I'm feeling good! Honestly better than I have in a while!

I thought I would share with you some goals for myself for 2019. Less of resolutions, more of overall goals and aspirations if that makes sense. I don't want to push myself too hard or set unobtainable expectations for myself, that way there is less disappointment at the end of the year when those things don't get done, haha! Makes sense right? Okay let's get started!

(these photos are just a mix of things I've taken over the last week!)
1. Exercise transparency
Lately a lot of the blogging world has become a bit more upfront about their real lives outside of the blogosphere, which I really, really like. That being said I do think there should be some sort of line of what gets published and what doesn't, I just think it's important to share at least some of the good, bad, and the ugly.

There is such a stigma against bloggers for being fake, and only showing the highlight reel. My life isn't all confetti, disco balls, and rainbow patterns, I want to share with you more about my life, of course in addition to sponsored posts and fun photoshoots, but just some more content that is genuinely me.
2. Work on being more CONSISTENT! 
Blogging is a LOT of work, all the social medias, YouTube and all that, but it's so much fun. This year when my blog went dark for a while during my time abroad due to domain issues, I got so off track.

I've made clear schedules and want to really work towards being consistent with my posting. It will be a lot of work, but it's worth the work, it's my job, it's what I love to do!
3. Radiate positivity
I want to focus on not only my personal happiness, but others' as well! I'm going to complement more people, tell more silly jokes, and do more small acts of kindness. I want to do as much as I can to spread joy throughout others! Because who couldn't use a little more!?
4. SLEEP
This is a simple one. I need to stop getting into my work at FOUR A.M! I need to just go to bed at reasonable hours and wake up early. I literally will go to bed at 3 and then wake up at 7:45, that's gotta stop...
5. Bet better with money
This is also a logistical one, but I SERIOUSLY need help on how to be better with money, I'm the worst at it! Especially with going to France this year and hopefully working an internship in some other city this summer where I know I'll want to try all the trendy dessert places and all that money wasting stuff haha!!!

Any tips to being more financially stable? lol

That's it for me this year! Like I said, keeping things light, I have a lot going on this year so I don't want to overwhelm myself! I think this is good! Do you have resolutions/goals for 2019?

Here's to the new year! I already have a feeling it will be amazing :-)
