2016 Resolutions

Hello, 2016!

New year, new you as they say. Every year we like to set some goals for ourselves. Last year I met my goal of cutting out red meat, so this year I wanted to set some more.

Mr. Kate gave me the idea of a mantra for the year. After thinking it over, I decided that “Bloom” is the perfect word for 2016. This year I want to grow as a person and be the best version of me.

When thinking of my resolutions I sat down with my Erin Condren planner and wrote out where I want to grow with my blog, in school, and personally.

Planner Goals

Then, looking at this list, I came up with words to summarize it. I took these words to write around my blooming flower above.

So, what are my resolutions?

  • post twice a week
  • create a solid theme both on my blog and on Instagram
  • be an inspiration to others.
  • earn an A in Chemistry
  • practice French to become fluent
  • exercise consistently (expect a blog post about this)
  • cut out all meat and become a full-blown vegetarian
  • eat 3 meals a day
  • create more by and for myself

What are your resolutions?



Thrifting Finds 12.24.15

My brother and I were supposed to be running errands but when we saw that the rarely open local antique store was open we just had to stop.

Having grown up with an appreciation for music and vinyl records, we both started digging through the hundreds of albums.

Once we got past all the Elvis and Johnny Cash we found loads that we loved. I found Alice Cooper ($7) for my brother and some Def Leppard ($4). I almost screamed when I found Fleetwood Mac Rumors ($8), which has been on my wishlist for ages. My brother and I both loved Michael Jackson’s Thriller ($20) and I grabbed it. I also got Kansas Leftoverture (free) even though it was pretty scratched up. It will look great on my record shelf (built by my brother.)

We spent, at least, an hour in the store and actually came back with my mother to show her the hanging lamp ($35) we thought she might like.

Overall, it was a good day.
