10 New Year Resolutions for 2017

Let's welcome 2017 with our main goals for the rest of the year! I wanted to share with you 10 of my new year resolutions for this year. I believe we might have some in common, and maybe I can encourage you to join me in a few of them. Let's make this year the best, alright?!

1- Be organized
As many of you saw in my last Instagram picture, I bought a small rack which has helped me a lot to be more organized. I usually make a mess in my closet trying to figure out what to wear during the week. This rack I mainly use it to hang the clothes I would like to wear during that week without having to go to my closet and make the usual mess.

2- Read a book a month 
I don't even remember when was the last time I read a good book. Recently because of school my mind has been everywhere and I never get to sit down and relax while reading. So I decided to change that this year and at least read 1 book a month or if I find something short that I can read in 2 weeks I'll read another one. It all depends on how busy this semester will be but I can knock out one book at a time. If you have any good recommendations that you've read before, leave me a comment I'll love to read your recommendations.

3- Travel/Visit somewhere I've never been to (not necessarily out of state or country)
You'll laugh at me if I tell you I've never been to a few places down here in South Florida such as the Everglades, Key West, Naples, etc...Yes I know that's crazy right? Well this year I decided to change that and actually enjoy what's out there that my own city provides. Of course, I will not settle for less because I am planning a few trips out of state as well and even out of the country! But mainly for the mean while I will be visiting some of these places that I have never had the chance to enjoy. I think this could be helpful for you to get out there and learn more about your city. I feel like we always settle for the same thing over and over again and we never get to enjoy the other things they offer us. I hope this encourages you to visit and go out as much as you can! Sometimes you don't have to spend a whole chunk of money somewhere to relax instead you can visit somewhere in your area that's very popular without having to ask for days off or waste a lot of money.

4- Eat healthier, and stop temptation towards junk food, work out
Let's be honest, this is in everyone's new year resolution but we must try it out. I don't eat so bad but I do feel very tempted every time my boyfriend goes out and buys junk food which makes me just order myself a number from the menu. I want to stop that, and I want to work out/exercise since I sit down in the office for multiple hours without doing much. This is something I have to schedule in my daily routine.

5- Provide greater/unique content in the blog
Yes of course! What's better than to bring newer ideas to the blog and change it up a bit here and there. I want to schedule myself into posting more constantly, and give you guys more content for you to help you out. As well, starting to record videos on Youtube and do more vlogs.

6- Schedule everything I have to do
I totally need this! Not only for school but also for the blog, events, etc. I tend to forget a few things and I know that making myself a schedule that I can guide myself through it will help me have more time to finish things and dedicate more time to myself.

7- Take care of my skin
I don't always take out my makeup before falling asleep, I don't always use moisturizer, I don't always use chap stick. I am currently in my 20's and I've heard this is the time to take care the most of your skin. I want to have a bed time routine in which I will always do before going to bed and every time I wake up. Investing in your face skin is the most important thing you can do.

8- Spa day twice a month (nails, facials, hair - monthly)
My nails are not always done, and I take for ever to cut those ugly split ends. So this is something I want to invest in at least twice a month.

9- Study and stay with a high GPA
I can't stress this enough but studying and acquiring the highest GPA for this year is my main goal. I am currently in the honors level and I want to go even higher.

10. Have more family time and with friends
I barely see my friends even though I keep in touch with them, most of the time I tend to lack in visiting them or hanging out with them. Also, time with family is important!

Life is short, and we are not perfect but we should always try to better ourselves. Share down below some of your resolutions for this year. I would love to see your goals! Much love, and till next post!
