My New Year’s Resolutions

Hey guys!

As my last post of 2015, I want to share with you my New Year’s resolutions. But first, I want to thank you.

Thank you to every single person who has taken the time to visit my blog, comment on a post, leave a like, or subscribe. Thank you for the sweet comments and for helping me out via Twitter when I struggle with WordPress. Thank you for the inspiration from your blogs, and thank you so much for letting me be part of this amazing blogging community. I’ve only been blogging for 9 months, and it’s my favorite thing. So a big thank you to each and every one of you!

So, without further ado, here are my resolutions for 2016 🙂

HALDEN


 

Step out of my comfort zone. Say yes! I’m making a rule for myself to say yes to one new experience a week in 2016. People grow due to their experiences, and I’m always excited to try new things. But, I don’t want to stretch myself too thin, so I’ll pick and choose my priorities more carefully as well.

Grow my blog. I love being creative and interacting with all of you in my little online space, and I can’t wait to make my content even better and grow my readership. Side note: I also plan to rewrite those embarrassing first posts haha!

Improve my photography. I love taking pictures, and I want to get myself some new equipment and really see what I can do this next year. There’s always something to learn!

Let go of my need to always be right. I believe that to be happy, we need to not stress the small stuff. Learning to go with the flow sometimes could help me relax more 🙂

Spend less time online. I spend a ton of time online, either blogging, doing homework, or endlessly scrolling through social media. I need to unplug a little more and do more real-life projects!

And of course, travel more! I have a couple really exciting adventures coming up in the new year, and I can’t wait to share them with you all 🙂


What are your resolutions for the New Year? I’d love to hear about the exciting things you’ll all be doing. Let me know in the comments, and as always, thanks for stopping by 🙂

The Liebster Award!

For those of you who don’t know what the Liebster Award is, it’s an award that’s passed around to new or not very well known bloggers as a way to get them some more exposure! I was nominated by the lovely Kristie of Gold Standard Workshop. Check her out here! The Liebster Award is simple-once you are nominated, you answer the questions given to you and post them so that those who read your blog can get to know you a little better. Then you nominate some other bloggers, and pass on the award!

THE RULES:

1) Thank and link the person that nominated you.

2) Answer the 11 questions asked by the person that nominated you.

3) Nominate 5-10 blogs with under 200 followers and link them.

4) Create 11 new questions for the people you nominate to answer. (You can use the questions I answered here!)

5) Notify your nominees via social media.

THE QUESTIONS:

1.) What is your blog about?
M blog is about living life to the fullest and chasing after what you want! I believe that everyone has the capacity to live their dreams if they keep moving toward them. My content is mostly fashion, DIY ideas, makeup, and travel, with some inspirational posts thrown in.

2.) What made you start a blog?
I’ve been reading blogs for years, and I fell in love with the style of self-expression that you can only find in the blogging world. I love sharing my ideas with all the lovely people who stop by to check out my blog!

3.) What is your favorite color?
I love mustard yellow, rust, and forest green. Fall colors are my favorites, with deep greens navy, and burgundy tones.

4.) If you could splurge on one thing without any guilt or worry of the cost what would it be?
I’d backpack through India-it’s on my travel bucket list!

5.) Morning or night person?
I’m very much a night owl, but I love the feel of an early morning and a nice cup of tea 🙂

6.) What is the most listened to song on your playlist?
San Francisco by the Mowgli’s. I listen to a lot of indie music, and this song is so great! It’ll get stuck in your head all day, check it out here!

7.) Fruit candies or chocolate candies?

Definitely fruit 🙂

8.) What is your dream job?

I’m not sure what exactly that is yet, but I know it will involve helping others! Right now I’m working toward a nursing degree.

9.) What is your favorite day in your life so far?

I think every day has been special in its own way, but one of my very favorites was when I was sixteen years old and finished walking the Camino de Santiago, a 600 mile pilgrimage across northern Spain. It was an amazing trip, and I learned so much about myself while doing it. It’s such an amazing accomplishment to me! I’ll actually be going back this summer to walk the Camino again-stay tuned for more on that later!

10.) Where is your favorite place to vacation?

I love going on road trips and camping trips on my vacations! It would be really hard for me to pick one place, so I’ll just say the outdoors 🙂

11.) Who is someone you look up to (real or fictional)?

P!nk, because she’s the bomb and she doesn’t care what you think of her! I also love Emily Dickinson, Amelia Earhart, and JK Rowling, because they weren’t afraid to pursue their dreams when society was against it.

So there’s me! Thanks for reading all the way through 🙂 Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my answers and of the Liebster award itself! Check out the bloggers I’ve nominated below too! (I didn’t really see if they had less than 200 followers haha, it’s really hard to track that) These are just some that I really like!
