#WINTHEDAY

Oh hey, Happy New Year! I've been sitting on this NY Resolutions post for the past week without any real intent to post but when Refinery29 and Clearasil challenged me to express how I am attempting to win the day. So yeah, why not? It was an interesting experience to collect these goal and hopefully start moving towards them ASAP.

#1 - Be More Positive.

50% the way my resting face usually looks (i.e. eternal bitch face), 50% how I actually feel inside. I tend to be a bit of a negative Nancy and it's a bit draining after all these years. I'm trying to have a more positive outlook on life instead of focusing on the bad. Sad Twitter is so 2013, anyway.

#2 - Be More Active.

Getting there, somehow. 2014 will be the year I finally have a butt, for sure. Last year I was pretty good about running almost every morning but as soon as winter rolled around I started slacking. Not sure if I can commit to the gym membership just yet because of my schedule but we'll see. What works best for your guys?

#3 - Establish Beauty Regimen.

Ok, I admit it. I never wash my face before bed. I sleep with my makeup on and wash in the morning because, well, I'm lazy. I just turned 25 and I'm starting to realize that my skin just isn't what it used to be anymore. Bad habits start early and are harder to break years down the road so I've decided to try and change that now.

#4 - Eat Good Food.

Anyone who follows me on social media knows about my fascination with fast food. I promise you, I'm not really that bad, I just talk about fast food a lot. Living in San Francisco for me means I only really end up getting fast food once every two or three weeks. For a while, however, I stopped going to good restaurants since I never seemed to have time to go out on the weekends. Now that I have more free time on weekends I hope I can get back into exploring new restaurants, and who knows, maybe I'll even blog about them.

#5 - Watch More Anime.

I've been getting back into anime recently and it's drastically improved my mood. Anime was a fundamental part of growing up for me and it's refreshing to step back and revisit old favorites like Bleach and Naruto while also exploring new shows like Attack On Titan. I've also been getting back into video games and beat Pokemon Y recently, moving onto the new Zelda game next.

#6 - Be Simple.

Everlane Petra Market Tote bag

In 2014 I resolve to cut my closet in half. I only wear a fraction things that are in there anyway. I'm sitting on years worth of clothes that I keep telling myself I'll wear but never do. This also applies to any purchases I make this year, they HAVE to be very carefully selected and worth it. If I don't wear it multiple times, it's not worth it. This Everlane bag has already been my main daily bag since I got it before Christmas and was worth every penny.

YES! You definitely should watch Attack on Titan! Aren't your mind just completely blown by all the mysteries and surprises? Man, that show is the best!

Lovely resolutions! I find with exercise in the winter, I slack with outdoor exercise too so instead turn to workout DVD's which really work for me as it's only half hour out of your day and it's all in your own home :) xx

great goals! except the anime thing i should have them too. doing more sports and removing make up before sleep should be most important for me but I'm lazy as hell, too.

Krissy ~ style san san said...

These resolutions are ones I definitely need to work on too! Hehe!

Dominique Dyson said...

These are reasonable goals that you've set for yourself that I think will be reached successfully by the end of the year! Good luck to you!

PS: Love your photos. There is a simplicity in them as well.

This is what works for me. Zumba classes because it really gets my cardio up and the motivation to run right after the class. Try to pick a place not super close to where you live, not super far, basically running distance. Worse case if the class really drained you, walk. That's good too.
PS your bitch face is not so bitchy -:) but we all look prettier when fully smiling, don't we?

Maggie Adofo said...

I really like this list. I can exchange the watching more anime for blogging more. :)

I love this post! Although it might be a bit late for me to start taking up your New Year's resolutions...but I guess it's better late than never.

Loving your blog. x

Justine said...

It's almost March but whatever...This list is similar to mine. Especially the last one. Trying to consume more thoughtfully is easier said than done, but in recent months, it's really changed my outlook on life. And it makes me realize how I really am the one who controls my thoughts, feelings, and well, my life in general. Hope 2014 has been treating you well so far.

P.S. "Attack On Titan" is a great popular anime. Levi is my favorite. ;) Looking forward to Season 2.
