I could not be happier to be welcoming in the new year + a new 365 days of opportunity! Shoutout to everyone doing sober january. you guys are killin’ the game, and I have mad respect for you. I, though, will not be participating and instead continuing my weekly wine wednesday.
As for new years resolutions, I don't have any. They set people up for failure. So instead, I'm trying to look at the beauty in making small changes. I'm trying to drink more water, and make sure to get the nutrients I need in my body. I'm also trying to be more regular about my eating habits — as in, not surviving on lattes for 24 hours, then wondering why I'm so angry. Also, I'm trying to be better about sticking to my content calendar for posting on my blog. Finally — and this is the hardest one — I'm trying to a l l o w myself the space to spend lazy weekends at home, recovering, chilling and allowing myself to decompress.
So here we go! Here's to a new year of lovely chances to try, fail and get back up again!
bloggers i’m loving
the freckled life // caroline is an nye-based graphic designer by day and style blogger by night. FUN FACT: We went to the same high school and I was literally obsessed with her graphic design portfolio + then blog. And it’s her blog that inspired me to start my blog here! If you are AT ALL interested in fashion, beauty and current trends straight from New York City, then you NEED to be following her. Personally, I’m obsessed with the way that she curates style trends and you will be too. Check out her blog, The Freckled Life, and thank me later. #HonestlyThough
meags eggs // meaghan (meag) is a seattle (what are people from seattle called?)-turned-washingtonian. she started an instagram account in 2015 to test out her eggs and post #yolkporn. every since, people have obsessed over her daily egg photos and now she's officially launched her website — complete with a simple poached eggs recipe. Obviously I'm not going to be eating said eggs, but if you are an enjoyer of eggs, she is the, like, only person you should be looking to.
what i’m eating
vegan cuts subscription box // think of this as grazebox, but 100% vegan and filled with tons more than just 100 calorie snacks, WHICH IS FINE, but sometimes you want something more substantial. Vegan Cuts comes monthly and is F I L L E D to the brim with tons of amazing goodness. I received my winter box and it was filled with everything from a turmeric energy drink, to sugar snap peas crips to I Heart Keenwah chocolate balls to spicy chickpeas.
where i’m going
felt bar + lounge // I spent the NYE here, and it's hand downs one of my new favorite places for a night out. It's an exclusive lounge within the MGM Casino + prides itself on being a mixologist bar. Want to know more? Read about my experience here.
what i’m wearing
designer sunglasses on rotation // seriously? seriously. Think of sunglasses company, Ditto, as the Rent The Runway of Sunglasses. For about $24 p/month, you can rent and use different designer sunglasses. PLUS, when you sign up, you get paired up with a stylist that makes sure that every pair gives you extreme confidence (per their packaging). And let me tell you, I am obsessed. I love feeling like I constantly have a new pair of sunnies from a different designer to match my mood or season or event. PLUS, I’m giving ALL of you guys a free month with code HONESTLYTHOUGH.
what i’m drinking
plain water + lemon water // new year, new you. I’m trying to start this year off right by upping my water intake. I have a terrible habit of chugging coffee all day long and never taking a sip of water. When you’re dehydrated. your skin suffers, your metabolism suffers and you might feel hungry when you’re not.
