New Year. New Me.

2015

Happy New Year!! I can’t believe it’s 2015 already. 2014 seemed to fly by way too quick. But with the New Year, comes new resolutions and goals. I’ve come to understand the importance of resolutions and goals the past few months. I’m starting to incorporate them into my life and have actually helped me do what I want to achieve. I thought that with the New Year, I would come up with some resolutions and goals for 2015 which may also be resolutions or goals of yours as well. I have a strong feeling that 2015 will be a good year for myself and for many others of you. I can see change coming down the road as long as I can follow my goals I’ve set for myself. I’m gonna share my resolutions and goals with you guys and hopefully inspire you to change something in your New Year 🙂

 

Resolution #1- Healthier diet and stay active

I’m now a sophomore in High School and school is starting to really pick up the pace which has created a lot of stress-filled nights with 5+ hours of homework and studying. I also do extra-curricular activities such as music and sports. For me, when I’m stressed out and very busy, I tend to not pay attention to what I’m consuming. I usually grab whatever I can, whenever I can. Ever since about October, I’ve started to gain a little extra weight. As a result of this, I’m hoping that in 2015, I will pay attention to what goes in my mouth and to a more well rounded diet. I also want to start drinking A LOT more water than I am now. I only drink about a 12 ounces of water a day, on average. Drinking a glass of water before meals and periodically throughout workouts will hopefully give me a boost to loosing the extra weight I’ve gained. Since, I’ve been very busy lately, it’s been hard for me to find the time to go to the gym. I need to stop feeding myself excuses! I plan to workout about 3-4 days a week in 2015 to help me loose some unnecessary weight.

Resolution #2- Create efficient study habits

Ever since social media has entered my life, I’ve become a huge slacker when it comes to doing work. I get distracted with my phone way too easily and lose focus on my homework. I want to come up with a plan of action each day I get home from school. I’ll give myself breaks periodically throughout the night for me to use my phone and laptop, and then take away all my distractions so that I will focus on the work for that night. I usually procrastinate when it comes to study and I hope that in 2015, I will be able to start studying earlier to help eliminate some stress of cramming in some study time the night before.

Resolution #3- Get Organized!

As I grow older, I gain more responsibilities and work. My schedule has become more and more hectic and it’s hard to keep up with all that I have to do day-to-day. I purchased a dry-erase calendar where I can fill it with important dates such as important test days, birthday parties, social gatherings and extra-curricular activities. It has helped me to keep track of what’s coming up for the week and keeps me, well, organized!

Resolution #4- Continue to work and improve my blog

It seems that I blog less and less each year because I just become more and more busy. I’m hoping this year I will be able to balance out my schedule and prioritize blogging in my daily routine. I want to take my blogging to the next level this year and maybe even branch out and do video blogging. I just have to find some motivation and stick with it.

 

I hope my resolutions have helped to inspire you to create a new goal for 2015 and create a better you. I hope you all have a happy New Year!!

 

Neons!

Neon clothing, or as I like to call it, highlighter color clothing, is super fun! I love neon colors because it’s so bright and everyone will notice you. Plus, it is the perfect thing to wear during the summer. There are also a lot of different styles you can wear from shirts to shorts to dresses and accessories. What’s really perfect is to wear one neon color with another. My personal opinion is that if you wear, let’s say, a neon yellow shirt with yellow pants, I think it is a little overpowering or tacky. But it would be cute if you wore a neon pink shirt with neon green shorts and a neon pink thin belt.
Here are some of my personal favorite neon clothing:

 

Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Denim Short

Neon Animal Bodycon Dress

Black Light Optional Neon Yellow Fuchsia Dress

Dolce T-Strap Sandal

Printed Crochet Fringe 2fer Top

Summer Maxis and Rompers

The best thing for me to wear in the summer is something that is comfortable and keeps me cool. I think Maxis and Rompers are the perfect thing to wear this summer. I love maxis because they can be beautiful, long, printed dresses that are very flowing so it’s very easy to move around. These kinds of dresses are perfect with a pair of shades and thong sandals.

Rompers are perfect to wear anywhere. There are also many different styles. They range from just one color to different prints. If I were to wear a romper I would either wear it with a pair of Vans or sandals, sunglasses (of course!!), and a medium sized belt to help distinguish the romper.

Spring Floral

One of my favorite prints is floral. I love flowers so it’s really fun to wear floral prints. Floral goes with pretty much anything. You can pair it with a pair of flip flops, denim and some cute sunglasses. I especially love floral dresses. And it usually looks good with a brown leather braided belt.
My personal favorite way to wear floral is a floral dress with a brown leather belt and a jean jacket with a pair of fun bangles and a pair of Vans. Whether the floral print is big or very small, it is always a spring thing. Here’s some ideas about floral.

DKNY Jeans Floral Print Dress

Flower Print Bandeau Dress

White Vans

Medium Braided Jean Belt

Brandy Melville Light Wash Denim Jacket

 

 

Feathers and Denim

I love the way that feathers and denim go so good together. Try a denim top with a pair of colorful shorts and a feather accessory. You could wear a peacock feather headband, a colorful feather necklace or even if your feather necklace is very bland you could always add another accessory to help with the color. Like a pink headband or a or a big colorful bracelet.  Here are a couple examples of my idea:
