Goodye 2016 and Hello 2017

Happy New Year, I am so happy I made it to see 2017, God is good! I look forward to so much good things this year but before I get into it, lets do a quick recap.

2016 started off very rough for me, in terms of, finishing up school, I really thought I wasn’t going to finish school due to certain circumstances but I am grateful for those who stood by my side and was there for me through it all. I also got really sick in early 2016, missing 0ut 1 week of school, I got better and got back into the grove of things and I was able to finish on a very high note.

Right after completing school in May, which I started in late June, which turned out to be a decent job for me, that I am still doing. I graduated University in late October. With my biggest milestone for 2016 out of way, there is still so much more to prepare for in 2017. So here are my goals for 2017:

Personal Goals

Be bold – I was a very shy person a few years back. University has helped me to leave my little shell and I have been evolving ever since. I want 2017 to be no different, I want go after everything I want and accomplish them.

Have a healthier lifestyle – No doubt 2016 was a year a bad lifestyle habits, from beauty to food. I want to eat healthier, consume a lot more fruits and vegetables and definitely drink a lot more water. I want to hit the gym, I have been wanting to do this since last year and definitely want to make it happen this year. Finally, I want to take better care of skin.

Develop a healthy mind set – what’s a healthy body with a healthy mind ? I want to remain positive regardless of what is going on around me. Always have hope and faith that I will overcome my obstacles.

Get a new apartment – Wanted to get my own apartment in 2016, that did not work out. I am looking forward to doing that for 2017.

Travel – I really do love home (Jamaica) but I am ready to learn more about other cultures and other places.

Blog Goals

Continue to Inspire – a lot of you guys find my blog inspiring, that was a part of my intention from day one so I am happy I accomplish that and will continue to with more inspirational posts.

More outfit posts – this is an area of my blog that I want to improve on significantly, I realized that most of you guys love my outfit posts and I love them too, so I want to do more of those for 2017. Plus, I can share more of my style with you guys and yous guys can see more of me around the blog.

Keep blogging about the things I love – my blog is a way for to escape certain things in my life. I started my blog in a time when I was going through major mental and life changes and it was and still is a way for to forget about certain things for a few hours and just relax and speak to the world.
