With every New Year comes a progress report with a resolution list you did not necessarily accomplish when you reflect on the year prior. Save x amount of money a month, work out x times a week, put yourself out there, meet a guy. What I have come to find is my resolution list is a bit repetitive each time a year changes. Although, it's easy to be hard on yourself and feel like you may not be accomplishing those lofty personal goals, I've decided to meet those moments with optimism that some of those take their time for a reason and you don't need an official list. Those bullet points are worth waiting for. They say it takes 21 days to make a new habit stick. We're 28 days in and it's brought new changes, additions and habits that have made my 2018 so far.
The first and oh so important change, my hair. After a great yoga sweat-sesh, I had this idea to start parting it down the middle again. Oh so high school and a way to savor my youth perhaps? I typically love a side sweep where I can perfectly tie back a few bangs or most times, hide my face. I can't even remember when I started doing that. When I was looking in the mirror last week, I made a game time decision for a middle part and I'm loving it. A nostalgic piece of high school TC but it's something so simple that's put a pep in my step.
The quilted addition has been a definite highlight so far and a surprise. I stumbled upon this vintage CC and had to take the plunge. It was too good to be true and for those of you who love Confessions of a Shopaholic as much as I do won't judge me when I say the stars aligned and I knew this bag was meant to be mine. A coveted classic and one I am loving wearing when I'm in a chic turtleneck or lately, my Adidas sneaks, Alo leggings and gray thermal. She's become a new favorite gal pal and frequents Chestnut St.
Although this could also be considered an addition, I am calling it a new habit to bring on a fresh mindset. I spotted the Amethyst Aura Quartz on an Instagram girl crush of mine's coffee table. When I read about the power of this stone, I was sold. Encourages the heart to speak it's truth. Enhances mental clarity and communication. A Writer's stone. It felt like a great complement to not only the space I've created but a way to build on those personal side of life goals. The shape at first funnily enough reminded me of Fool's gold I used to collect as a little girl but let me tell you, this piece is anything but. She's a beauty and it's been fun to explore different stones you can add to your space to help your mind and cultivate positive energy. The best part is the dish this amethyst is glowing in boldly states Girls Just Wanna Be CEO. She fits right in and she's like really, really pretty.
Hope your January has felt like a runway to find new ways to better yourself, continue the good that's going and open your heart to the rest of this year's possibilities. 337 more days to make it amazing.
