Time for those resolutions. The last two years (2016, 2015) have been about bettering myself (healthy eating, exercise, and makeup), blogging, and family, and this year looks like it will be much of the same with one additional: travel. We are looking forward to using our Southwest Companion Pass (every time Mike flies, I fly for free) in 2017!
1. Visit 3 new-to-us cities: combining that pass with our baseball bucket list is going to make for an awesome summer. Our dream is to see a game at every MLB park together, and so far, we've done San Francisco, NYC (Yankees), Atlanta, Denver, and this year we're looking at Dallas, Chicago, Seattle, St. Louis, or Kansas City - any suggestions?
2. Style my hair everyday: Okay, don't laugh. Last year, I really did well with my "wear makeup everyday" resolution. While it might only be mascara, concealer, and blush, I really did feel more put together walking out of the house every morning. This year, I need to stop leaving for work with wet hair. I think if I spend 5 minutes blow drying it each morning, I will have even more confidence throughout the day.
Christy for this one! Mike and I have definitely been better about cooking for one another, but I have all of these cookbooks with pretty photos that I need to use. I am going to go sticky note crazy this month and find delicious recipes to make all year!
5. Stay in touch: Two years ago, I sent birthday cards to friends and family. I love the way it feels when I got a card, and while I fulfilled that resolution for most of the year in 2015, I didn't send a single one last year. Unlike my makeup resolution that really created a lifestyle change, I think I need one more try to get the same to happen with this one. This year, in addition to birthday cards, I want to try to make one call per week and be more purposeful about replying to messages (emails and texts) when I receive them.
Lastly, because we all want to start our year and resolutions on the right foot, I am hosting a giveaway over on my Instagram page: Tartelette palette, new brushes, and a $50 Sephora gift card to look good and "look ahead" to the new year! Click here to check it out and enter!
