You know what they say…January is a free trial month. I’m more committed than ever to this blog and all of my goals for 2019. This year is pivotal for me. It’s the year I graduate college, find a fashion internship, and get a big girl job. I have high hopes for this year and ready to prove to everyone that I can do anything I set my mind to!

  1. Find a fashion internship. I’m required to have an internship to graduate, so I will be working as an intern this summer. I’m hopeful to find one that speaks to everything I’ve always wanted to tackle in fashion. I don’t expect this internship to be my dream job, but it will be my start in the fashion industry and be something that adds experience to my resume. It’s a very stressful process, but I'm hopeful and trust in what God has planned for me.

  2. Grow my blog. Having a fashion blog has been a dream of mine for YEARS! One day I let go of my fear and created it. However, I haven’t been as active with it as I hoped. School and other priorities got in the way, this year I want to change that. I want to be proactive with it and really grow it into what I had always dreamed of. Hoping to have at least 10k followers by the end of 2019.

  3. 2 posts a week. Since its the year of my blog, a goal is that I will be consistent in posting. I want to put up at least two posts a week, one of which is an outfit post. It’s really something that I want to do not only for myself, but for the people that read the blog. I want them to look forward to reading something two times a week and not wait weeks or months for the next post. Like I said, January was a free trial month. Its February and two posts a week start NOW.

  4. TRAVEL. TRAVEL. && MORE TRAVEL. My last class of college will be a New York Fashion Study Tour….I mean go out with a bang right?! I definitely couldn’t pick a better place than one of my favorite places on earth. Traveling is something I've acquired a passion for that I didn’t do much of when I was younger, I definitely want to change that. Even if it’s just small weekend trips, my bags are packed and ready!

  5. Step out of my comfort zone. I’m definitely an introvert, and a homebody and I want to change that! This year is big for me so pushing myself is something that I’m definitely going to have to learn to do.

  6. Spend more time with the Lord. There is no question on how blessed I am. The Lord has given me what I need and SO much more. However, I feel like I don’t spend enough time one on one. Don’t get me wrong, I thank him daily and try to live my life in a Godly way…but I feel like I slack at it also. I don’t want to find myself being one of those people that prays when they need something. I want to be someone that just prays. Prays for myself, my family, the world, my blessings, my hardships, everything. Diving into the word is something I definitely want to get better at.

  7. Do things that make ME happy. Of course I don’t do things that make me unhappy in my everyday life, but I’d like to do more little things. Things such as going to concerts, girls nights, small county fairs, driving down the road with the windows down, screaming songs at the top of my lungs…you name it. Not big things that cost a lot of money, just things that bring a smile to my face. You only get one life, live it well. Also, I’m only 21 once, I only have 8 and a half years left in my twenties, I intend to spend those years wisely doing things that bring me joy…no matter how big or small.

There are so many more things I want to tackle this year, these are just a few of my top ones. A new year brings new possibilities, new adventures. Its a fresh start, you get to decide how you’re going to live it. I’m choosing to live mine to the fullest. I want to be a great friend, daughter, and sister. I want to bring smiles to peoples faces. I want to make my family proud. I want to live my life through Jesus. I want to live, and I have every intention of doing just that.

I hope y’all take the time out to maybe reflect on the past year and set goals for this new one. Think of the things that maybe didn’t work out in your favor, but also the many blessings in your life. It’s a new start, anything can happen.

God Bless
