This Year

This year, I’m not going to have a new years resolution.
Because honestly, who ever keeps theirs? (I don’t.)
And even if I ever do try and make one, and then don’t keep it-I feel like a failure, or I just feel bad about myself. But I know that’s not a true reflection about myself, so this year I’m doing something different. Instead of focusing on one major change in my life, I’m going to try and focus on smaller things, but not be so distraught if I don’t follow through with this one.
Because we should never take life too seriously, it’s not like we make it out alive anyway.


This year

A bad habit I’m going to break:
Biting my nails!

A new skill I’d like to learn:

A person I hope to be more like:
Both my Mom & Dad-so much giving and so much drive.

A good deed I’m going to do:
Buy a family’s meal, once a month.

A place I’d like to visit:
Ireland, Scotland, the South Beach Flea market in San Fran!

A book I’d like to read:
Harry Potter

A letter I’m going to write:
One to my grandparents every month.

A new food I’d like to try:
This is a hard one, maybe greek food?

I’m going to do better at:
Being nicer to people close to me and opening up more to those I don’t know that well, and not being quick to judge.


This year, I encourage you to not have a new years resolution-I promise, it’ll be worth it.

2013 Hair Trends

So far my predictions have been right! (SQUEEL!) Along with Harper’s Bazaar, these are some trends to look for this year:

Slicked back(think of that nasty wet-look from last year, but not as extreme), Super low pony tails (the tie actually comes past your ears and sits on the upper back), and Rock and Roll Waves! The only trend that I’m actually excited about is the Rock and Roll waves!! I honestly should’ve been born in the 70s, but at least with this trend I can look like it. Here are some of my favorites from the runways…

Look out for these 2013 hair trends and start playing with this hairstyle them yourself! I look forward to this look rocked 😉 (so puny…)

And in case you wanted to jam to some 70s rock&roll while you try out this hair style, here’s one of my fav bands and one of my fav songs from the 70’s…enjoy!
