Now that the holidays are over (wow, that was fast) and the new year is fast approaching, I'm focusing on one of my resolutions for 2018: amping up my make-up game. We all know that I'm set in the skincare department, but when it comes to make-up, I'm still a bit of a novice. So what better way to get started than with cult favorite beauty brand, Too Faced? Their diverse range of products are designed for beauty beginners and make-up obsessives alike, and as their new Chocolate Gold collection combined my favorite food with beauty products, I thought it would be a great place to start.Read More
Why is it that no one can ever keep their New Year's Resolutions? Is it because every year, we come up with resolutions that we know we probably won't keep? We give ourselves lofty goals that seem achievable, but usually require a complete change in our daily lives to accomplish. Maybe we focus our resolutions too much on the results, and not enough on the process. All we can see is the end goal, the place we want to be by December. But what about the baby steps we must first accomplish over the next 11 months? This year, I'm going to focus more on the process (which itself is one of my resolutions), setting myself small goals as the stepping stones to larger accomplishments. With that in mind, here are some of my 2016 resolutions:Read More
Though New Year's Resolutions aren't exactly commandments set in stone, we still make our lists every January. By December, we realize that we were a little over zealous. We didn't lose 15 pounds or subsist solely on kale juice for days at a time. We didn't finish a different book every 3 days, but instead spent even more time on our various devices. But does it really matter if you keep those resolutions? Is it about achieving your goals, or are New Year's resolutions more about reflecting on yourself and what you can do better? Admitting that there are things you want to change, and at least taking baby steps towards a more fulfilling life.
This year, we're keeping our resolutions small and achievable. Focusing on how small changes can make a big impact. While most people are trying to shake off their everyday routines, we're trying to find and adhere to a schedule. After a year with a lot of highs and lows (graduating from college, jumping around to different jobs, starting this website), it was almost too easy to wake up at 11am everyday, go to bed at 3am, and watch tv for hours on end. This year, we're embracing a more structured life. That doesn't mean we won't spend Sundays in a vegetative position, but we believe that waking up earlier, having a more consistent work out schedule, and going to bed at a reasonable hour will lead to a much more balanced life. Like we said...baby steps.
