do you ever feel like breaking out of your comfort zone or just want to try something new??? as much as I love feminine, girly, pretty and proper 😉 I really love getting into outfits that have an edgier vibe to them. this faux leather jacket paired with the lace top are hard to see in the dark through pictures – but I love the combination and will definitely be wearing the pair like this more often.

I was so excited to have Bailey, [my good friend and hair master] style my hair and makeup for a night out. I love the shimmery smokey eye for a New Year’s look but I also love it for date night. the mix of golds and silvers dancing on my eyes made me never want to wash it off! we wanted the eyes to really shine so keeping the lips neutral perfectly balanced this makeup look
and let’s talk about this hair! Bailey created the coolest style using twists, knots and loops. I’m known for always curling my hair so leaving it straight and adding a few unique elements with the knots was an awesome change for me. 2018 I’m going to get out of my comfort zone more often!
a few goals for 2018
– work out 3x a week
– read scriptures when I wake up every day
– be more patient
– save my money and buy a designer bag
– make a nicer (meaning not just frozen chicken nuggets) dinner 3 nights a week
– work with 1 brand a month for my blog
– date night with my husband twice a month
– do my visiting teaching for my church
– playtime with my girls everyday
– family home evenings once a week
– hang out with girlfriends once a month
these goals I’ve set for myself I feel are realistic and attainable in my life right now, I may add some as the year goes on but I’m feeling good about my list so far 🙂 what are your goals for 2018?
