HAPPY NEW YEAR’S!
Yeah, I’m definitely late.
2016 has been a year of highs and lows, but now it’s time to welcome 2017 with open arms.
In today’s post, I’m going to give you all some tips to starting the new year (or the rest of January) off right!
By the way, this post is not going to have many pictures, but I hope you’ll read it anyway!
Ok, I have a secret to tell you.
I have NEVER made a list of new year’s resolutions. Really, never!
(Don’t be me.)
Most people would agree that making new year’s resolutions is key to having a great year. But the truth is, writing stuff down on a piece of paper isn’t going to do anything unless you TRY! Motivation is key, and achieving your goals feels GREAT! Be sure to set some goals – both big and small – and see what you can accomplish!
I’m going to share some tips and tricks, tried and true, that will help you have a great 2017!
Here we go!
- Get a Planner!
SO many people wish to become more organized each year, including myself, and it’s so hard to keep up with this goal. One of the thing I found really useful this year was a planner. It keeps me organized with the activities I keep up with beyond school, and decorating it is so much fun!
(Honestly, I think it’s the decorating that does it for me.)
Using a planner helps me remember appointments, meetings, events, and even get-togethers! If you do get a planner, write down even the smallest events and details. It’ll get you excited!
- Redecorate Your Room!
Changing up your space can totally change your perspective. Add some fun colors, throw pillows, and blankets to your room. Honestly, you will feel like a completely new person! And if you don’t want to spend any money, just move things around. Move your bed to the other side of the room, or put your desk next to the window. Trust me, it’ll make all the difference. Making some new DIY decorations is also fun. Lemme know if you want me to write a post about it!
If you want to go REALLY CRAY, buy a new bedspread. Your bed is the focal point of your room, so switching up your bedspread will completely change the look of your room.
new year = new room = new you!
- Change Up Your Style!
No, I’m not telling you to go out and spend your life savings on a new wardrobe.
Not that I’ve done that before. Me? Nooooooooooo.
Ok fine, guilty as charged.
ANYWAY, changing up your style is yet another way to feel like a new person. Mix and match pieces of outfits you’ve worn before, and you may be surprised at how cute they look with different pieces!
My key to simple style is this: be neutral. Buy solid-colored tops, bottoms and accessories. That way, mixing-and-matching different pieces is simple! Also, you won’t look like you’ve worn the same shirt three times in the same week.
(Also guilty as charged. Whoops?)
Ok, guys, I’m out of ideas.
Let me know YOUR favorite traditions when ringing in the new year! For realsies, I need some.
I hope you all had a FANTABULOUS New Year’s, and I’ll see you all next time!
minor side note: I am aware that the sidebar on my posts is messed up. I’m working on it. I’m also failing at trying to do so, so if any of you guys know how to fix it, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
