2015: Let’s Do This

I hope everyone had a wonderful time ringing in 2015 last night! I spent it with my boyfriend and bestie in a new neighborhood of Atlanta for us. Cheers to 2015 being the best one yet. Also, thank you to each and every one of you for being apart of and supporting me here on SCxo. I wanted to share some of my resolutions with y’all to reflect back on during the year..and also keep me accountable!

1. Stick with a “grown up” skincare routine – I get in phases where I just use a makeup wipe and moisturize, but I need to add my clarisonic back into a regular routine and find a system I can use consistently. If you have any recommendations let me know! Currently I’m using this face wash and this moisturizer. Look for a skin care routine in a few weeks! 

2. Study more than the minimum – I’ve gotten really lazy with school and only study for upcoming tests. This year I want to be better with my readings and learn as much as I can before clinicals start in the fall.

3. Take a trip(s) somewhere new– I have a major trip itch lately and for 2015 I want to get out of my bubble and explore more. I think this started when I was picking clinical sites for my third year in school. I want to do one in a new city, but I’m super indecisive so it’s stressing me out more than it should. Actually, being less indecisive should be a resolution, but I only want to set reachable goals 😉  

4. Eat healthier – duh. Gets me every year. However this year I also want to expand my cooking. While at school I order Papa Johns and eat out way more than I should… This year I want to try new recipes at home (I tend to make the same things and most of those just involve heating in a microwave).

5. Better posture – If you didn’t know I’m in Physical Therapy school, this resolution now makes more sense to you.. haha. This is something I really need to work on, especially while in lectures!

I’d love to hear some of your resolutions!

    better posture is a great one; I might have to steal it! I had the best posture growing up because of ballet but sadly it's something I lost along the way

      I think the best success would come from telling people you see all the time to point it out if you're slouching! Also to strengthen your back with rows and stretching out your chest (depending on how bad your posture is).

  5. Happy New Year! I try to knock out a bad habit every year. So far, I have cut out diet coke and Splenda. Not sure which habit it will be this year yet. I love those starter kits at Ulta for skincare. Try the Philosophy one, it's one of my favorites!

  • Celebrating two years together today 💕 
@shelbyraephotographs captured these photos for our one year anniversary at the same venue we got married. If you’re contemplating doing an anniversary shoot... I highly recommend it! I went all out and did a DIY floral bouquet (that I held the entire drive worried they would tip over, brought our cake topper hoping it wouldn’t melt in the car, and our vows to re-read to each other. You can see the full recap on Strawberry Chic 🍓(search One Year at the top right corner)

I also wanted to say hi to some of my new friends following along here! I’m an Atlanta fashion blogger/Youtuber and a full time Physical Therapist. I have the best of both worlds getting to help people heal from injuries and also look and feel confident in what they’re wearing! I keep it pretty on the feed but real over in IG stories. I don’t take myself too seriously but I try really hard to 😂 I do have an about me highlight if you want to get to know me a little more and you can also find my blog and YouTube channel by clicking the link in my bio 💕. Feel free to reach out anytime on DMs and have a great start to your week!
  • I am having the best time @hotelatavalon tonight with Tim celebrating our two year Anniversary 💕 I can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to on stories a little later. Also, where have facials been my whole life?? Sunnie @woodhouseavalon taught me so much about my skin today and shared tips I never even thought of that can be causing acne. I’ll definitely be sharing some of my tips with y’all soon on Strawberry Chic if they work for me. I hope y’all are having the best weekend enjoying this Fall weather 💕. Swipe right to see the cutest little bow detail to this sweater.

  • Happy Friday Friends! Welcoming the Fall weather with the windows open in the John household. Why does the Fall air feel more refreshing and clean?? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I went ahead and ordered another color in this slim puffer vest on sale under $20. I live in them at work because I’m always cold but it doesn’t restrict me from working on patients. My ruffle sweatshirt is part of a sale on sale and under $25. It’s made a second appearance on my feed so you know it’s good and it will go fast💕.

  • I see you Friday 🙌🏼 This post is going up a little late because I lost track of time de stressing in a hot bubble bath 💆🏼‍♀️ Y’all may have noticed on IG stories today took it out of me. Anyone else a fan of taking baths?? This wrap sweater was featured in my Abercrombie try on haul (swipe up in my try on highlight to see all my styled looks). If you buy anything from the haul I recommend the lace cami because you will wear it under everything!

  • Not sure about the pajama trend? This blouse is an easy way to pull it off. Not to mention, it feels like my pillow case and I’m all about that 🙌🏼 This look would be perfect for date night and I’ve been loving this rust color paired with the unexpected blush. But let’s be real, y’all know I’ll pair anything with blush. 💕 This look is from my recent @abercrombie try on haul. Swipe up in stories to watch if you missed it!
