Happy New Year!

January 1, 2016

Happy New Year! Today is the first day of 2016 and I am looking forward to what the new year will bring. I am so incredibly grateful for so many things that happened in 2015. Thank you to each and every one of you, especially those who take the time to comment on my posts, Instagram feed, Twitter and Facebook page every week. Your support means so much – I am grateful more than I could express to you in words.

Looking back on the past twelve months, the highlight of the year was taking a month to travel through Europe. My husband and I have either been in school or working nonstop the entire time we’ve known each other since we met in college so being able to getaway from everything and take some time for ourselves to explore other parts of the world was the best thing we’ve done together. Thank you for following along with me on my travels – I was beyond thrilled for all the e-mail recommendations! (In case you missed them, posts here on Paris, Paris Beauty Shopping, Italy, Greece + Turkey and surviving with carry-ons only.) I hope I will be able to travel more in the upcoming year.

Thank you so much for following along with me as I share what I discover in beauty. I wish you all the best and a Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I wish everyone all the best in health and happiness for the upcoming year. The last month flew by so quickly I felt like I blinked and December came and went. I’ve been thinking about New Year’s Resolutions for a few days and find myself struggling to come up with a tangible and specific list of things I want to accomplish in the next 12 months. So far I only have one specific item on my list thanks to a friend. A couple of days ago one of my friends convinced me to sign up for a month long workout bootcamp with her. We start next week and I am extremely nervous because as of right now I can’t even manage a single pull up, but I’m excited to get fit and am really happy to have a someone to help motivate me and keep me committed along the way.

I would love to hear what your 2015 goals are – I’m in need of some inspiration!

Happy New Year to everyone! This time of year is my favorite because of everything I have to look forward to in the new year. It’s like I can to hit the refresh button and get a fresh start on everything. In 2013, I wrote 218 blog posts, started to use Instagram weekly, and finally created a Pinterest account. Many thanks to FabulousK, this blog went through a re-design for a cleaner updated look. One of the top 2013 highlights included having my work credited and featured in Brigitte Magazine (photo featured here). In my non-blogging life, 2013 proved to be one of my most challenging and demanding years in my career as a business analyst. I’m grateful for my mentors who pushed me to grow to new levels with challenging projects and opportunities. One in particular mentor challenged me by telling me, “learn to become comfortable with the uncomfortable and you will be amazed with the results.” Taking risks and working on projects in a wide range of fields while pushing myself to accomplish things I thought I could never accomplish has allowed me to grow in ways I could never imagine. I hope to continue to grow in the next year in my career while at the same time I hope to grow this blog as well.
In 2014 I look forward to trying new things. I would like to focus more on skincare. Time management is always on the list. I need to improve my organization and plan ahead more often. In 2014 I would also like to expand and grow the content, pick up on my lifestyle blog, use Twitter more frequently, connect more with my readers. I’m still making my list of resolutions for the new year, but I am excited about what 2014 will bring. A few special thank you’s to Café Makeup, Temptalia, Karen at Makeup and Beauty Blog and Cute and Mundane for their continued support.
Here’s to an amazing 2014! Happy New Year to everyone! I’m incredibly grateful to each and every one of you for your support and inspiration. What are you looking forward to in the new year?
