2017 Goals

It's the beginning of the year, so it's time to share my goals. I don't believe in the "New Year, New Me". You can make small changes at any time, you don't have to wait for the beginning of the year. However I like to set new goals and it's the best time to share them with you all. 

Hope this post inspires you and let me know what your goals are!

Have a pink-tastic day!
Similar to the vast population, I care about my health, especially at the beginning of the year. Since discovering about my intolerances, I've been making an effort to adjust my diet, but fail whenever chocolate is in the house. This year I plan on taking better care and avoiding the products I'm intolerant to.

Another health related aspiration is my skincare, I plan on creating a better more effective routine in order to achieve flawless skin, well as clear as my skin can get. If possible, getting more facials is also a high priority.

Mental and spiritual health is also crucial. Though I'm generally a positive person, I let people get to me. This year is the year of positive vibes, others shouldn't influence my happiness. 

Living in a different country than my family and loved ones can be hard, which is why I want to visit them as often as possible, but also for them to visit me. To feel closer to them it's important to hear them, so skyping and phoning are better than texting. 

I also want to invest in myself, by that I mean traveling more and expanding my knowledge. 

A challenging goal is to shop less. Instead of buying fast fashion, I want to invest in the pieces I've been obsessed with for years. 

My last goal is to be more creative with my blog and YouTube channel. Lately blogging has become about buying into trends instead of styling. I started because I wanted to show all of the ways in which you could use your clothes to create beautiful and stylish outfits, all while mixing luxury with affordable pieces.

  34. My family of three is planning a trip to Milan in April, I'm so excited! It's been a couple of years since my last visit there, after I lived there back in 2005-2006 and 2007-2008. Any novelties worth seeing? Thank you for your kind comment on my blog! I love your dark shade of lipstick in this post! I think it's a good idea not to let others get to you, I'll strive to do so myself as well :)
