2016 New Year’s Resolutions

My 2016 New Year’s Resolutions revealed. Every January, I take a few minutes to turn the focus inwards, on the ways in which I can improve myself.

Happy New Year Lovers! Is everyone back into the swing of things, and settling back into work? #TheStruggleIsReal, am I right?

As we ring in this first month of 2016, I can’t help but reflect on this past year and all of the incredible things I’ve gotten to do since launching Haute House Flower, all thanks to each and every one of YOU!  I’ll actually be sharing some of these highlights in a super personal, exclusive interview (more details coming soon!), so be sure to follow along on Instagram to stay tuned on the big reveal.

 I’m definitely someone you could classify as highly conscientious (read: Type-A to the MAX!), and I typically don’t share my New Year’s resolutions with anyone, I usually prefer to share achievements when they happen.  However, I wanted to share a few lighthearted resolutions that I’m absolutely forcing myself to do this year…also in the hopes that you guys can help hold me accountable! My plan is to share them on the blog, and hopefully I can inspire some of you. Hey, they say that the discipline of writing something down is the first step toward making it happen, right?

1.  Fashion Resolution: Wear More Color
This outfit doesn’t count. Lol. So here’s my theory; there are girls who wear color, and girls who wear black, and then there are the girls that seamlessly can do both. I’m finding myself in an in-between place. Why? Let’s be real: I’m a fashion & beauty publicist by day, and a blogger by night. (read: PR girls notoriously wear black.) I have tried to fight this all-black-everything outfit stigma over my 10 year stint in the PR industry, but black honestly is the easiest thing to wear, and always looks chic and pulled together, even those times when you’re SO not. That being said, I want to explore a wider color range beyond just black and my current go-to neutrals (white, nude, grey, navy) and force myself to get out of my comfort zone for a few reasons:
a) Colors photograph better. Yes, this is my number one reason. LOL.
b) Colors elevate your mood, and make your outfit more memorable.
c) I have my whole life to wear black.

d) I think wearing color will make me a better dressed human, and who doesn’t want that?

2. Beauty Resolution: Learn How To Do a Salon Professional Blowout…AT HOME

I’m truly embarrassed that I don’t already know how to give myself a proper salon-worthy blowout. I WORK IN BEAUTY YOU GUYS.  I’ve tried so many different approaches, and countless YouTube videos over the years, I’ve even enlisted the help of my hair stylist, and I still can never seem to make my hair look 1% as good as it does when I leave her salon. This is pathetic, no? To my credit, not only do I  have a ton of hair with very fine strands, but it’s extremely long. The thought of being able to get the bouncy, whip-my-hair-back-and-forth sassy hair of my dreams, (at home, nonetheless) makes me happy beyond measure. Not to mention it’s a huge money saver!

3. Personal Resolution: Travel More

I love to travel. However, with my crazy hectic work schedule (see above) I just don’t get the opportunity to travel as much as I’d like. I’ve been fortunate to travel all over the world, but I have to admit that some of my favorite  blogger’s Instagram’s are giving me major wanderlust FOMO.  A self-confessed workaholic, traveling is how I unwind. Locations on the immediate travel agenda include; Las Vegas, NYC, Miami, and let’s wish upon a shooting star that Paris is in there somewhere.

So now on to you…do you set New Year’s resolutions? If so, what are they? I’d love if you shared any details with me. Also, what do you want to see from Haute House Flower in 2016? I’m here for you, so tell me everything, darling…Cheers to you, and to an amazing year!
