HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!!! Ahhh can you even believe it is a brand new year again! I am beyond excited about what this year has in store and I hope to make it another great year! This year I will be starting Nursing School which is truly exciting yet so nerve racking. I have no idea (well kind of no idea) what will be in store other then tons of studying and more studying haha. I have become a newly planner sticker obsessor so I am hoping that my life will be as organized as possible and that my scheduled writing times will stick! I really just feel like this is going to be such an amazing year full of nothing but positive people and situations and I can not be more excited about it! I am also trying to not make any resolutions other then trying to do little things for myself that make me feel good ( which lets be honest shouldn’t be super super hard!). Wether it is taking an hour to do my nails or get them done, using a new perfume or lotion, or even just going for a jog. What are some of the things that you all are looking forward to must this year? Or what are some things that you are trying to accomplish this year? Hope you all had an amazing New Years and can not wait to chat with you all soon!

XOXO Val

Hopes for the New Year!

2015

Hi everyone and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! Ahhhhh can you even believe that it is 2015, I sure can’t but I know that this year is going to be a rockin one! Since January 1st means a new year is ahead I would love to share some of my hopes for the new year. I don’t like to set resolutions because like many others I feel like I never stick to them! So instead these are some hopes and goals that I will be working toward this year or just enjoying more =)

1. I really want to connect with you all on a more regular basis! I love getting to you know guys and I love writing as well but with school this last year it has been a non stop whirlwind. So I am going to try to dedicate set time each week to connecting and getting my fingers typing to share with all of you!

2. I want to travel more (who doesn’t) but truly there are so many places that I have said that “oh I want to go there one day” and this year I want to travel to at least one new place. Its such a passion of mine seeing and exploring new places and learning that I really want to allow myself to enjoy it! YOLO haha

3. As much of a positive person as I try to be I do have my debbie downer days. So this year I want to replace my negative thoughts with positive ones. And I know that is easier said then done, so what I have done is taken my favorite quotes, sayings and encouraging messages and written down on little sticky notes. I fold them up and put it into my Jar of Positivity an whenever I need one I will reach in and pull out some positivity! Fun right!

4. Lastly I want to be more open to trying new things. Either with beauty, fashion and even food! I feel like a lot of us get into routines of what works or just are too worried about trying something different that we all become stuck (hello I’m guilty of it!). So this year my hope is to every month trying something new and spice up my year.

I hope you all enjoyed those and I would love to hear all of yours! I think we all can inspire and support one another so if you are trying anything new this year reach out and I would love to know! Talk to you all soon and again Happy 2015!!!!

xoxo Val
