Hoping for Change in 2015

2015

Time for that New Year’s Post.

I know everyone starts the year of with these New Year’s Resolution post and they’re very cliché. I’m normally not a cliché person (which is why my friends call me a hipster) so it’s ironic that I’m doing a resolutions post. I normally over do it with the resolutions but this year I simplified to four simple resolutions.

1. Become a healthier person.

I’m not going to lie. I have an addiction to soda and fast food. I really need to cut it out. I’m taking a zumba class in college. I learned that if you have a work out buddy you’re more inspired to work out. Well in zumba class, I have my friend Mandi. Now outside of class, I still need to work out so I recruited my friend Caitlyn when she’s free or it’ll be my mom and sister. I’m hoping to work out at least four times a week.  As for the soda and fast food addiction, I plan to drink at least 32 ounces of water everyday and eat healthier or make healthier eating choices. Part of becoming a healthier person is to become healthy both physically and mentally. I want to have more me time. I want to spend less time on social media and more time reading. I’m actually reading a book on mediation since it’s supposed to help you sort out your thoughts.

2. Save money.

I want to save money for many reasons but how I plan to do that, I plan to budget, use coupons and many sites that offer discounts such as RetailMeNot. I want to save money for a place of our own, a car and other necessities.

3. Move out.

Right now my boyfriend, daughter and I are living with my boyfriend’s family. We don’t pay a lot of rent and we have people helping us as well as it’s only a couple of minutes away from my mom and family but I just feel overwhelmed. There’s a good amount of people who live there so we don’t get as much privacy or space that we would need for a family of three. On top of that I just feel overwhelmed by all the help but I feel bad if I don’t let them help. I wanna raise her not to get spoiled and want to limit her on certain things but they (I feel like under-mind would be too strong a word) ignore what I want for her and says “Oh she’s just a baby”. Plus I’d like to live a little closer to my family because I feel like they don’t get to see her enough. This is part of the reason I would like to save money.

4. Get my license and a car.

It’d be a bit hard to move out if I didn’t have a way to get around. I really need to get my license which involves more practicing and being a more confident driver.

Now with these resolutions, I’m introducing a a new series, Monthly Resolution Check In. It’s my way of keeping up with my resolutions and as an inspiration. I feel I’ll be more inspired to continue if I know I’m going to be writing about it later. Wish me luck!

Sneak Peek: What’s in My Bag?

A Chance, A Risk, A Change

My Purse

Taking a sneak peek into what is in someone’s bag can definitely give you an insight into what type of person someone is and sometimes the experiences the person has encountered. A person’s bag will either contain a lot of items or just a few simple ones but no matter what you can be certain that the bag is important otherwise why carry it with you. Since this is my first time blogging I decided to start with a What’s in My Bag post in hopes that it will help you learn a little about who I am. I will not provide a full list of everything in my purse because I am one of those people who carries a lot, specifically when I use a large purse, so we would be here for what would seem like eternity. Now I can tell you that my purse itself is nothing special but some of its contents…

Autumn Faves (Tagged but not Tagged)

So I saw this cool Autumn Tag post going around and since I haven’t exactly established my place in this “blogosphere”, I decided I would do it anyways for fun.

1. Coffee-What’s your favorite seasonal drink from Starbucks or any other coffee shop?

Right now, being pregnant keeps me from drinking coffee and my financial situation didn’t allow it as well so I have yet to join the coffee crave other than the frappes from McDonald’s. If I did have to choose a drink it would actually be hot chocolate…a simple classic.

2. Accessories-What do you opt for: scarf, boot, or gloves?

My choice would definitely be boots. I have a pair of Ugg-Converse that are rare to find so I love showing them off during the colder season.

3. Music-What’s your favorite music to listen to during autumn?

My favorite music would have be something like Ellie Goulding and Bridget Mendler.

4. Perfume-What’s your favorite scent for this time of year?

My favorite scent is anything with vanilla. Sadly my only vanilla scented perfume is a mixture with flowers and reminds me of spring so I’ve put it away and opted for a honey scent perfume my sister got for me (I really have to find out the name of it, it smells amazing!)

5. Candles-What scents will you be burning this season?

I love anything vanilla or brown sugar because it reminds me of cooking on Thanksgiving and Christmas so both is on my burn list.

6. What do you love the most about autumn?

I think the thing I love most about autumn would have be sweater weather (which is totally on my playlist now).

7. Favorite make-up look?

I don’t wear make-up that often but when I do and it’s around autumn, I normally go with browns and golds that have a bit of shimmer. My skin’s a bit more moist around this time so my skins glowing a little more than it does before so I try to focus more on my eyes that way my face isn’t affected but the over use of moisture from my foundation and such.

8. What are you looking forward to the most in autumn?

I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving because I love to eat!
