Well 2012 is in the books and I can say that is a year that I’m not sure I’ll miss. Although 2012 had a ton of AMAZING trips & memories from those trips (see photo highlights here) with my friends & family, 2012 will always be known as the year I moved across the country and missed out on a lot of family & friend events, moments, celebrations, and memories. 2012 has definitely had its fair share of ups & downs. I can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store!
Here are my goals that I have FINALLY decided on for 2013:
Cooking is something that I am
good okay at but I tend to stick with the same recipes that I’ve successfully made before. In 2013 I want to be more adventurous in the kitchen and try all the amazing recipes/foods that I’ve pinned on Pinterest. I also want to share those experiences with all of you!
I am THAT girl who sleeps in every day she is off of work. I’m not embarrassed to admit I usually don’t set an alarm on days I don’t work and often sleep till noon, or even 2 pm. In 2013, I plan on setting an alarm and being awake by 10 am each off day. As the year goes by, I want to eventually be up by 8 am but a girls got to start somewhere, right?!
Shopping & spending money is my nemesis. I shop literally all the time. I browse online, I shop at the malls, Target, etc. I love the feeling of getting new things! In 2013, my goal is to save half of each pay check and to think twice before buying anything. I also would like to buy less inexpensive items and build my closet to have more pieces that are “timeless”.
Yes, I’m the girl who goes through streaks of healthy eating. Sometimes I will only eat health foods, sometimes I live off of junk food, sometimes I mix the two up. In 2013, I plan on focusing on eating healthier & paying attention to what I’m putting in my body. I plan on drinking more WATER because water is so important & I am not consistently drinking enough. I also plan on going to the gym 3-5 times per week instead of my sporadic gym goings.
Finally, I plan on finding a way to move back to Chicago. This is going to be the HARDEST thing I can work on this year but it’s the one thing that will make me that happiest! (Wish me luck everyone!)
Now for this lovely blog, I have made a few resolutions & goals for it as well. Thank you to all who have been following along in 2012! Whether you visit daily, weekly, monthly, or sporadically, I appreciate each and everyone of yours support! Thanks you!
I really enjoy guest posting but I do not do it often enough. I also do not ask bloggers I admire to guest post on this blog often enough. So, in 2013 I plan on reaching out & collaborating A LOT more with the other wonderful bloggers I’ve met throughout this journey so far. If anyone is interested in collaborating, please send me an email at email@example.com
There are so many wonderful blogs out there that I look up too. In 2013, I want to elevate my blog to another level, move to WordPress.org, have more giveaways & partnerships, and hopefully help inspire other bloggers out there!
I often do not have a photographer, so consistent OOTD posts are difficult for me. In 2013, I plan on buying a tripod and making sure I am much more consistent with outfit posts!
I create a lot of stuff for myself but I often forget to share it on Fierce & Fashionable. So, next year I plan on doing a better job documenting my DIY’s and sharing them!
Goodbye sporadic posts, hello new posting schedule! I promise I will do a better job following my post schedule this year instead of being so random!
Thank you again to all of you who have followed along so far! 2013 has a lot in store for Fierce & Fashionable so stay tuned!
