NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS_

Hello my beautiful readers,

🎉 HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 🎉

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful start to the year!

With the new year also comes new years resolutions for so many of us. Now while I love the idea of new year resolutions, improving ourselves and doing things we’ve always wanted to try, I also think there not the most proactive. What I mean to say is, when we come up with these new years resolutions at the end of the year, we spend so much time thinking about what our ultimate goal for the year will be and so little time if any on planning the little steps needed to help us reach this goal.

This is probably the number one reason why so many of us fail with our resolutions. We haven’t prepared or planned the most important part.

What I wanted to share with you today is my favorite way of planning those little steps. It’s called monthly habits. I got the idea from a video I watched a couple years ago by Alex Ikonn, I’ll actually link it here so you can watch it. In the video he talks about how at the start of every month he tries to implement one good habit into his life. The habits can be anything, they could be not checking social media after 10 o’clock, waking up at 6am every morning or dedicating 20 minutes to reading every day, the choices are endless.

Now you can choose either to do random different good habits for the year like the ones I just mentioned or you can make them more specific to your goal for the year. To show what I mean I made a little planner/schedule of the year with the habits of that month next to it. For the example I used Learning Photography as the new years resolution..

1-2

2-2

As you can see every month I’ve added a habit or challenge that will help me learn photography and really better myself at it. You’ll be making this same exact planner/schedule except instead of “learn photography” you’ll add your goal and then make the habits or challenges specific to that.

Just grab a book or a piece of paper, write it all down and then stick it somewhere you know you’ll see it everyday. It’s as easy as that!

The next step is putting in the hard work, patience and time into accomplishing these little steps. Give it all you’ve got and don’t be to hard on yourself if you make a mistake or don’t reach your goal for the day, there is always tomorrow!

I hope this helps you reach your goals. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to read this! I love you all and I’ll talk to you next Monday!

My Summer Nail Polish Collection

blog postHello my beautiful readers,

How are you all this lovely day? For today’s post I wanted to share with you my summer nail polish collection. One of my favorite things to do at the start of a new season is to go through all my nail polishes and choose which few will be my go-to’s for the next few months. I usually do this because I hate having all my nail polishes out and taking space. This way I only take out the ones I know I’ll be using the most through summer and the rest I put in a bag and store it in a closet. After spending some time going through the whole bag I have narrowed it down to these nine.

  • Arm Candy

The first one I have chosen is this Sally Hanson Salon Manicure nail polish in the shade Arm Candy.I love how elegant and classy the light pink looks on my nails. It’s such a beautiful color that goes with every outfit I put together.

 

  • English Rose

The second one I’ve chosen is this one from Rimmel London in the shade English Rose. What I love about this shade is how it creates the perfect french nail. All you do is apply two coats and you get this very light pink coverage. It’s a really subtle color but is absolutely beautiful especially  with the glossiness it adds to your nails.

I tried to take some before and after pictures of me apply it to my nail but I’m not sure if the photos turned out that good.

 

 

  • Tropical Heat

DSCN9346The next one I chose is this beautiful shade called Tropical Heat by the brand Face Of Australia. I was pretty hesitant about buying anything from this brand again since I have had a few bad purchases from them but I’m really happy I decided to purchase this nail polish from them. The color is like a mix of pink, brown and silver.It looks magnificent especially when the light hits it.

 

 

  • Angora Cardi

The next lucky contender that has made the cut is this lovely polish called Angora Cardi by the brand Essie. This one I didn’t have to think about. When I saw it it was automatically in the  yes pile. Just look at that color absolutely gorgeous.

 

 

  • Shocking Pink

I know what your probably thinking “How much pink nail polish does one girl need” just one more I promise. 🙂 I chose this color called Shocking Pink by the brand Loreal Paris because it was so different from the pinks I normally choose. I always tend to stick to the lighter shades but I thought why not switch things up a bit and experiment with this bright hot pink. I’ve already worn it a few times and I absolutely love it, it looks so good!

 

 

  • Rebel Blue

In keeping of the tone of switching things up I have also chosen this deep blue in the shade Rebel Blue by the brand Loreal Paris. From the moment I saw this nail polish in the store I was in aww. It’s such a stunning shade of blue kind of reminds me of the color of Rose Dawson’s heart necklace, anyone else?

  • Gold Carat

This next one I’ve chosen isn’t a typical nail polish per say it’s basically a bottle full of sparkles covered in clear polish. There are honestly sooooo much sparkles in it you don’t even need to prep your nails with a coat of normal nail polish before hand you can just add a coat or two of this and your nails will be completely covered in gold sparkles. It’s looks so stunning especially when your out in the sun when the sparkles are in full force. It’s just wow 🙂

 

 

  • Golden Rose Purple

The next one I’ve chosen is this beautiful purple by the brand Golden Rose.I am still surprised this nail polish has held up as long as it has. I got this the last time I was in Serbia, which was around five years ago, and for it to still be as good as when I first got it is pretty cool. I also remember the nail polishes being really inexpensive from this brand they were around five dollars I think maybe less.

 

 

  • Golden Rose Baby Blue

Last but not least is this beautiful baby blue nail polish also from the brand Golden Rose. {I also go this one in Serbia.} I love the way this color looks especially in the summer time when you have a bit of a tan going on, it’s looks so good.

Those are all of the nail polishes I’ve chosen for my summer collection. I hope you enjoyed today’s post.
