Hey y’all, this is my first post of 2016 ahh. I thought it would only be fitting to talk with y’all about my new years resolutions (actually I’d like to call them goals because that is more what they are) and some things I hope to accomplish this upcoming year.

// Make a blog schedule and stick to it //

Last semester, I really struggled to keep up with my blog schedule. I had originally hoped to post three times a week, but I think that at the time that was too much for me. Getting adjusted to college and sorority life was hard on my time management skills. This year, I’d like to have new posts up on Sundays and Wednesdays. I can plan content ad take pictures in between/ahead of schedule. If I can plan out my whole month in advance, it’ll help me bunches as well!

// Work out at least once a week //

Classic. Yes, I know. I think that working out once a week is a very attainable goal. I feel like since I’ve been at school, my diet has gone down the drain and I have started to eat poorly in addition to not working out. I would just like to keep myself at an ideal healthy weight and start to tone some muscle!

// Take fashion risks //

I’d definitely like to try and take some risks with my style and mix things up a lil! I really tend to play things super safe, which is fine, but taking risks will push me out of my comfort zone, which is something I think would be fantastic for me. I’ll keep y’all updated on this one!

// Continue to put away money for my college fund //

As I earn money here and there (since I don’t normally work but on breaks), I want to start putting away a small fraction of it for my college savings. I’ve depleted some within my first semester, but I need to be saving for upcoming semesters sorority as well as my extra fees.

// Grow my business as well as my blog //

Through social media, as well as word of mouth, I hope to continue to grow my blog as well as Etsy shop, the brunette and co. I would love to be able to utilize my blog as an outlet to propel me into the fashion industry. Brunette and co. will help me learn time management, money management as well as marketing skills I will be able to apply to my career.

// Become more involved in Alpha Phi //

Being on our executive board as Director of finance will help me get involved through service. I really hope that I can meet some more sisters whom I don’t already know, and make a positive impact on the Greek life experience of other sisters.

What are your new years resolutions for 2016? Let me know in the comments!
