I’m not big on resolutions, personally, because I have a terrible track record of following through with them. I do believe in setting new intentions each year though. I had started a list of things I was actively working on last year. Embarrassingly, not much has gotten done, but I was able to cross some big ones off the list!
It was a very serendipitous moment when Irresistible Me first reached out to me with this opportunity to review their Silky Touch extensions. Even though I wanted to grow my hair out, I was about to go in to the salon for a chop. Getting my hair past the awkward lengths between cuts or growing out your hair is torturous! Thankfully, now, I can use these extensions to get me through the transition.
This is a break from the regularly scheduled DIY tutorials, travel tips and style posts. Every now and then (usually around the new year), I take some time to reflect. The reason for these birthday musings is because I turned twenty-five last week. I’m a quarter of a century old now!
How the time flies, I can’t believe I’ve had Right Where I Left Off for two years now! In the past two years I’ve learned a lot technically and personally from blogging. Sometimes I’m not sure why I keep blogging, but most days I enjoy making and sharing the content that goes up weekly. I wanted to share with you some of the life lessons learned from my time blogging on my 2nd blog anniversary!
It’s a leap year! That means there are 366 days in this year, what’re you going to do with your extra day?
I know this “extra” day lands on a Monday so most of us are at work, but I was thinking one more day this year is still one more we didn’t have regardless of when we get it. So I’m choosing to spend my day planning. I’m planning future travels, new blog goals for Right Where I Left Off and brainstorming what I want to write more about in the coming months.
Earlier this month, I went dress shopping with my sister for her wedding dress. We’re both guilty of binge watching Say Yes to the Dress on Netflix, so we had a good idea of what it would be like, but was unprepared for minor details that would have made the whole day smoother. So I thought I’d put together a post that rounds up some great reference articles for others shopping for their big day and as a reference for myself when we have to go shopping again.
I can’t believe 2015 has come and gone so quickly! With each new year, new goals are set. Last year, I chose not to make any official lists or declarations of any, but this year I wanted to try something new. I figured by putting my goals out there (especially so publicly), it’d help motivate me to stick to them and keep me accountable. So I’m sharing my list with you all today.
I like to knit and crochet. I hear it’s the new hipster things, but I’d like to say that I’ve been doing this before it became “cool”. My mom taught me how to crochet years ago. She would do it at the ski lodge during family trips while the rest of us were on the slopes getting bruises on our butts from trying to learn how to snowboard (I have since switched to skiing and my behind thanks me). I usually called it quits early to go sit with her. I watched her methodically crocheting scarves and hats thinking it looked so difficult. But once she showed me how easy it could be I was hooked (heh heh, I’m so punny). It was only last year when I taught myself how to knit from YouTube videos and the myriad of free tutorials on the web.
