They See Me Resolutin'


I admittedly have never been a big resolution-er or a "new year, new you" type of gal. I tend to like to jump on things as they occur to me. However, I do think January is an awesome time to think about all the things you'd like to accomplish for the year. Sometimes a New Year is the perfect motivation to make some changes or pursue some goals we've been wanting to achieve. 

Below are some of my resolutions works in progress.... 

Skincare

I was really motivated by a post that Julia wrote last year (gosh, she's just my favorite) along with a notable b-day. I'm a big product junkie. If you tell me something will make me sparkle, shine or add radiance, I will take 10 of them. But Julia was talking about her skincare regimen and said she was working on being able to go makeup free. And in my head I thought "yeah right that would be impossible for me!" Her post talked about realizing what her body was lacking and providing it those things. Do you have dark circles under you eyes? Why? Is your skin dry? Why? And it really struck a cord with me. So these past few months I've been doing the same. ....figuring out what my body needs more or less of so I actually need less cover up and camouflaging products.....although me and my foundation brush are on standby.  

Finances

I think getting your finances in order is the sister wife of quitting smoking in the New Year's Resolutions house but it's such a good one! This is a big one for me this year. I have some pretty lofty goals and wad of determination. 

Fitness
So this is not a new goal for me but it's one I want to continue to focus on and grow and learn more about. Fitness has become such a huge part of my life and passion. I'm currently staying pretty challenged with circuits and LISS/HITT workouts but I know there will come a time when I need to step it up again. It's good to keep your body guessing!

Professional

I adore my job and my client, they're the best. I've decided that this is the year I really need to make some bigger moves professionally within my company....excited wherever that may lead! 

Personal

And then there are those personal goals that are just that. I think it's good to have a few things you keep just to yourself, that you motivate and hold yourself accountable for. 

What are you working towards this year?! Wishing you guys a beautiful year!

XO, A

Good luck on all your resolutions & goals, friend. I know you are going to kick serious ass because you always inspire me. I hope you are successful in everything you try for this year and that even if you're not that you are proud you at least tried and went for it. That's all we can do. Always praying for you <3
