five goals.

With the new year officially underway, I thought I'd share a few of my personal goals for 2013 with you.  I like making a list of resolutions at the beginning of the year as something to work toward.  I know that I might not accomplish all of them, but I'd like to do the best I can!

1.  Take better care of my hair.
      I use I lot of styling tools on my hair and often forget to use heat protectant sprays beforehand.  As a result, I've noticed that my hair has gotten pretty dry and damaged.  I want to reverse it!

2.  Exercise more.
     I began jogging at the beginning of this year and loved it.  Unfortunately my schedule made it hard for me to continue.  I will definitely try to work time in for running at least a few days a week.

3.  Wear sunscreen every day.
     We all know that this is super important but often neglect to do it anyway.  I would like to change this by buying everyday products that already contain sunscreen.  For instance, I love CoverGirl's NatureLuxe foundation, which has SPF 10, and Jergens Natural Glow & Protect daily moisturizer, which has SPF 20.  It is an easy way to protect myself without really thinking about it.

4.  Put my creativity to work.
     I love to be creative and make new things, whether they be tasty recipes or homemade cards.  However, I often use my free time to watch tv or just lounge around instead of doing something more productive.  This year I would love to take some time every week to work on a different project.

5.  Give thanks.
     This is such a simple but meaningful resolution.  It feels so good when someone thanks you for doing something, such as taking the time to make dinner or giving a gift.  I want to make sure I thank others more often and let them know that they are truly appreciated by sending out thank you cards or even just saying a few thoughtful words to them.

Thank you all for following me in 2012.  Here's to a great 2013!

I realize it was probably too cold to wear this shirt outside.  I should have been sensible and put on something with long sleeves.  Yet, as soon as I saw this shirt hanging in my closet I was reminded of warmer days.  It's so perfectly light and pretty that I couldn't help myself.  Who cares if it's 20 degrees outside?  Sometimes a girl just needs a bit of summer to cheer herself up.

happy new year.

Wet Seal shirt, (Borrowed) Forever 21 skirt, American Eagle tights, Rock and Republic flats, (Gifted) ring, OPI Goldeneye nail polish

So, first of all, I just wanted to apologize for my unannounced break from blogging.  I had a bunch of projects to finish up and events to attend.  Now I am back to blogging though and am super excited about it.  2012 was a great year (I started blogging!) and I think that 2013 is going to be even better.  I wanted to start the year off on a classy note, which this outfit accomplished perfectly. 
Happy New Year everyone!  Follow me on Blogger and on Bloglovin!
