new year goals

It’s a new year and I’m very happy for that. 2016 had some great things, and some not so great things. I was lucky enough to spend the summer in LA interning for some of the best people. I had many family memories I will never forget, made some amazing new friends, and so much more. 2017 will be a new year though for many reasons. There is a lot I want to change, and a lot I want to start doing.

  1. Get rid of the toxic people in your life- There are some people in my life who I don’t want around anymore. They aren’t causing happiness, they cause stress. They don’t make you feel good about yourself and it’s time to cut ties.
  2. Workout, workout, workout- Yes, this is everyone’s resolution. But seriously, I’ve been a hater of exercise for waaaay too long. It’s time to get in there and see some results.
  3. Cook more- This year I actually started cooking and love it. I love throwing ingredients into a skillet and seeing what happens. Usually, it turns out really well. This year I want to actually make the recipes I pin!
  4. Love yourself- Don’t rely on other people for happiness. If you love yourself the most, others will too.
  5. New friends- I met one of my best friends last year, and hope to meet more this year.
  6. New places- I graduate in May (ugh) and have NO idea what I’m going to do after college…I hope to find a great job, move somewhere new and have a new beginning. I’m excited to find out!
  7. More positivity, less complaining- I complain a lot and sometimes have a not so sunny outlook on things. I’m going to start being grateful and seeing the positive sides of situations and things. Thanks to this article.
  8. Spend 1 hour a day without my phone- I’m on it waaaay too much. Sometimes it causes unnecessary stress that has to go.

**I want to thank everyone who reads my blog. It’s been a rough year with actually finding time and motivation to post, and I will up my game so much this year. I can’t wait to see where it takes me!

aloha + swimsuit picks

I spent a couple days in Hawaii and did absolutely nothing except lay by the pool, take cute beach pictures, shop and eat. Also, we beat Kansas in overtime which was the cherry on top.
