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!

  • I haven’t stopped listening to Taylor Swift since the concert on Friday. It was seriously the best concert I’ve ever been to! Sorry BSB and Britney 🤷🏼‍♀️ If she’s coming to your city I can’t recommend #reputationtour enough! Have you been yet??

Wearing my go to basic tee and these stretchy and comfy pink shorts from Zara! They’re not on LIKEtoKNOW.it so I can’t link the shorts but DM me if you want the link! My earrings were from a #fabfitfun box. Linking a similar look and my favorite basic tee at the link in my bio or swipe up in stories 💕.

  • My heart is so full and inspired after #TBScon and a weekend with new friends! So glad I got to meet this pretty lady  @lauren_holifield - don’t miss her stories while she’s renovating her parents house. It’s going to be farmhouse goals!

A big thank you to @joulesclothing for gifting me this gorgeous dress. I’m so glad I was introduced to their bright and colorful pieces and I’m officially obsessed💕 And thank you @ballcanning and @lacroixwater for the cutest #bloggerbrunch at @hotelatavalon | #tbscon #atlantablogger #theblogsocieties #cultivatingcommunity #hotelatavalon #lacroix #ballcanning #joulesclothing
  • Its worth getting up at 4:45 this morning when you get to eat breakfast twice 🙌🏼 It’s been a whirlwind Friday between #tbscon and #taylorswiftreputation tonight and I am loving every second 💕 Anyone else going to the Reputation tour?? I can’t wait to see me some T A Y L O R.

Click the link in my bio to shop this look. My top is only $16 and I’m wearing Valentino dupes🍓Happy Friday friends!  #liketkit http://liketk.it/2wUX5 @liketoknow.it
  • I challenge you to buy something way out of your comfort zone every now and then because you never know what may surprise you! This olive cropped jumpsuit was my surprise this week. Tim was even a fan and I thought he would hate it! He described it as “elegant but bossy” 🤣 Like this photo if you think he should narrate my next try on haul. Also, I have a lot of new faces around here so I just wanted to say a quick hello to my new friends👋🏼💕.

Coming to my YouTube channel this Sunday is an @oldnavy try on haul. I found so many cute basics for fall that are a heck of a lot better deal than the nsale 😜. I normally size down in Old Navy but I wanted the top to fold over the not so cute waistband.  I’m wearing a small for size reference.

My heels are a Valentino dupe from @amazonfashion and look just like the real deal! I linked the exact outfit on the shop page of my blog.

  • Is it possible to be impulsive but also an over analyzer? Because I feel like I am somehow! If I finally decide I need/want something, it has to get done right away. If my mind is on a project, I won’t take a break to eat until it’s done. If I’m on a health kick it’s all or nothing. If I’m craving cookies, I will slip on my flip flops and head to the store.

Last week I started shopping for a new blog design, and this weekend I made it happen! I’ve sat at my desk since 10am yesterday tweaking every little detail, and it was so worth the task. Take a peek at the new site and let me know what you think! The features look best on a desktop, but it is mobile friendly, too.
