My New Year’s Resolutions

kate_spade_agendaHappy new year loves! I realize it’s been a few days since I last wrote anything but my life has been a bit busy recently with all of the holidays coming to a close. I’ve been traveling around a little as well and haven’t had much time to write and my sources of wifi have been limited. I need to learn how to plan a bit better for times like this. I bought a planner for this year and hopefully I’ll actually use it. One of my favorite planners is this Kate Spade one! Anyway, I hope your New Year’s Eve was as exciting as mine was (more to come on that tomorrow!)

In typical new year’s fashion, I’ve made a few resolutions for 2015. Before I get to those, I’d like to share with you a bit about 2014 for me. It was a year of major ups and downs. I can’t put my finger on why it was that way but whatever the cause, I’m hoping 2015 shapes up to be a bit more of an ‘up’ year as opposed to a ‘down’ year. I think we have seasons in our lives though. There are times for growth and prosperity and times for patience and learning. This was a “patience and learning” year for me. My faith in God grew tremendously because I realized I can’t handle everything on my own. I have to trust that everything will turn out ok. Maybe that was what I needed to learn this year?

New Year’s Resolutions

Anyway, my new year’s resolutions involve personal development. There are so many things I need to learn that I simply haven’t had the time to research. Becoming a savvy business lady is no simple feat. All that I’m doing now to line myself up for success seems boring and trivial but eventually it will payoff, so here are my resolutions:

  • Lose the Christmas cookie weight and firm up my body
  • Make it to the gym 4 times a week
  • Learn how to budget carefully
  • Purchase domain name and personal website
  • Learn how to market outside of WordPress platform
  • Create Etsy store
  • Read books on CEO success stories
  • Learn how to take Instagram-worthy pictures
  • Learn a computer code like HTML

What I’m Loving: Concentric Collection Frames by Warby Parker

Where does the time go? This past weekend was just busy! I’m exhausted but feeling accomplished. Yesterday, I went in search of something pretty and stylish that would lighten my mood and make me smile. I ended up finding (and falling in love with) these gorgeous glasses in the Concentric Collection by Warby Parker.

Most of you probably don’t know that I wear glasses for distance. The current frames I have are pink and black by Guess. I’ve had them since early high school and haven’t wanted to change them, they’re pink after all! This new collection has me rethinking this decision though. My favorites frames are the Cognac Tortoise and Oak Barrel. They also have sunglasses in these frames!

I need to go to the eye doctor soon to make sure my eyes haven’t gotten worse and to adjust my prescription. It’s been a few years to say the least! As much as I love pink, I’m thinking a little update to my frames wouldn’t kill me. Plus, for every pair of glasses sold, Warby Parker donates a pair of glasses to charity for someone in need. By taking care of your eyes, you’re caring for the eyes of someone who can’t!
