New Year Resolutions?

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!

Top 5 Christmas Decoration D.I.Y’s from Lia Griffith

My Musings, Uncategorized

Untitled design(26)

Hello my wonderful readers,

How are you all doing! For today I wanted to share with you my top 5 favorite Christmas decoration d.i.y’s from Lia Griffith. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year and there’s nothing I love more then spending hours on hours searching for fun new ways to decorate my house. So you can imagine my excitement when I found this site as I was going through my Pinterest posts. Just one look at those adorable little owls and I was hooked. I went to the site to find out how they were made and after spending a good 20 minutes browsing around I was so happy to find even more fun d.i.y’s to do.

One of the things I really loved about the site is that the projects were so diverse and a lot of them I haven’t seen anywhere else before. It was really refreshing to see since d.i.y projects can over time start to get repetitive and boring.

So without further ado… here is my top 5 list!

Foam and Crepe Paper Owl

How precious does this owl look!! It would be such a great bonus gift to give to your family and friends.

These flowers would make such great center pieces or you could even place them on top of gifts instead of bows. There are so many different ways you can get creative with them.

Felt Ball Christmas Pillows

Paper Evergreen Holiday Wreath

Christmas decorations wouldn’t be complete without at least one wreath to tie it all together. This one here is my favorite from the site because it has that classic feel to it and I really love the attention to detail of the leaves and cranberry’s.

That is it, those are my Top 5 Favorite Christmas Decoration D.I.Y’s. You should definitely check out the site. There are heaps of other decoration ideas for you to choose from and they’re not all limited to the Christmas theme.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post. I really appreciate it and I really hope you got some inspiration and ideas from it! Have a wonderful week everyone, I’ll talk to you all on Monday!

fashion, makeup, Uncategorized

Hello my beautiful readers,

How are you all doing today! For today I wanted to share with you a list of my Top 5 Favorite Beauty/Fashion/Lifestyle Youtubers to watch at the moment.

It was pretty hard to narrow it down to just five since there are so many sweet and talented youtubers out there but in the end I decided to choose Samantha, Duan, Christine, Mimi and Niomi. I chose their channels for many reasons, 1. they work hard on their videos, 2. they are really down to earth and real – they never have this fakeness to them, 3. they are extremely sweet to their viewers and really take the time to respond to comments and interact with them, 4. their videos are always, at least to me, very inspiring and motivating and I could go on and on.

But since it’s 3 in the morning right now I’m just gonna end it there and share with you the links and also my favorite videos from their channels. I hope you enjoy them! 🙂

Documentaries To Watch!

Hello my beautiful readers,

How are you all doing today! It feels so good to be back and writing again. It feels like it’s been so long since I last sat down and actually wrote a proper post, so my fingers are crossed that I’m not to rusty at it. For today I wanted to share with you two documentaries I recently watched which I absolutely loved. They are Before the Flood and Ethel.

I’ve always loved watching documentaries ever since I was a kid. I was a huge history nerd so documentaries to me were always really special and they still are today. So it’s always a huge joy for me when I discover new ones I haven’t seen.

The two I’m sharing today are very different from each other. One is about Climate Change and the effects that it’s having on our planet whilst the other is about Ethel Kennedy and her life story. Both are amazing. I loved every minute of watching them and I hope you do to. I’m going to share a link to the full version of both so you can watch them yourselves if you haven’t already!

BEFORE THE FLOOD

 

ETHEL

Let me know in the comments what you thought of them and also if you know any good documentary’s comment them down below as well!

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my post. I cannot express enough how much it means to me. 🙂

I hope you have a wonderful week, I’ll talk to you all next week!

September Favorites

Hello my beautiful readers,

How are you all doing today! In today’s post I’m excited to share with you my favorites from the month of September. It was a great month were I discovered so many amazing places, music, tv shows, foods, and films.

I’m so excited to share them with you so let’s just get into it!

DOTTI

dotti

Dotti has quickly become one of my favorite stores to shop at. When I first went in the first thing I noticed was just how beautiful all the clothes were. The clothes look so different and unique from clothes you would see in other stores and the materials are always such great quality. I’ve already bought quite a few dresses from them, which I’ll be sharing in a Spring/Summer Lookbook so keep an eye out for that!

BOUNCE BITES

bouncebites2-600x350

If your looking for a healthy treat to snack on through out the day then Bounce bites are perfect for you! I’m always looking for healthy alternatives for snacking and when I was in the organic section in Safeway I came across these delicious gems. They were on sale for half price so I ended up getting one of each flavor. They are all equally delicious but I do have a favorite out of the three and that’s the coconut almond kisses.

Blueberry Banana Bliss- These were probably my least favorite and only because I don’t like overly sweet treats and these for me were just to much. On the other hand my mum loved them, she loved the sweet taste to them. So with these ones I think they would be perfect for anyone who has a big sweet tooth!

Coconut Cacao Delight- I loved the coconut cacao delights. They’re really good to snack on when your not craving anything sweet, since they have a strong cacao taste to them. I would say out of the three flavors these were probably the least sweet out of them all. I should probably add they aren’t bitter either since the coconut really balances them out.

Coconut Almond Kisses- These are hands down my favorite ones from them all. They have this magic taste were they are sweet but not overly sweet were if you eat more then two you feel like total crap. The coconut and almonds just mix so beautifully together and they are just wonderful to eat.

VERA WANG – PRINCESS & Marc Jacobs – Daisy

Since I had run out of the perfumes I was using previously I thought it was the perfect time to switch things up and try out some new perfumes. I ended up buying two, one that’s more fun, feminine and sweet and the other a more sophisticated, classic scent.

For the fun, feminine and sweet one I got Vera Wang’s Princess. I had read such great reviews and after testing it out in the store I decided to purchase it. I’ve already worn it a few times and I absolutely love it.

For the sophisticated and classic one I chose Marc Jacobs’ Daisy. This one really surprised me. From the design of the bottle I thought it would be a really sweet, floral scent but it was more refined and classic. Another great thing about this perfume is that it lasts a long time after you put it on.

TAKING FLIGHT

A beautiful short film that was inspired by the life and heritage of Antonio Pasin, inventor of the Radio Flyer wagon. I adored it, I just only wish it was longer!

THIS IS US

I’ll just say it, I LOVE this show.The actors and actresses in it are phenomenal. I think this show is just the perfect balance between heartfelt and comedic. During those first two episodes they had me both crying and laughing throughout it.

If you ask me with this show it’s hard to put into words how amazing it is the only thing I can do is encourage you to go and watch the first episode. GO WATCH IT NOW!! You’ll not regret it! 🙂

                        MY MUSIC FAVORITES

We’ve reached one of my favorite portions, new music! I have so many to share from September, it was a great month for discovering new tunes.

SABRINA CARPENTER – ON PURPOSE

ELVIS CRESPO – SUAVEMENTE
