New Year, New Me?

2017 is almost over.

I haven't written in a while, but I figured I would share some of my goals for this year with you all! These are things I've been working on already, so they're not really "New Year's Resolutions", but I'll be carrying them over into 2018!


1. Read.

Because knowledge is power. Plus I feel like an uncultured idiot, sometimes.

2. Travel.

Internationally, domestically, alone, with bae, spontaneously, planned, whatever!

3. Drink more water.

I am horrible at it, and I know my skin and hair will love me for it.

4. Network.

Hopefully the traveling will help me, but I want to get closer to my Latina/Afrolatina influencers, bloggers, and business owners!

5. Get my hair cut by @themonacut.

I've been waiting for this forever, and I WILL make it happen. She's always booked and I'm not in NY! Ugh.

6. Get into grad school.

If you know me, you know the struggle. Pray for ya girl.

7. Start my YouTube channel.

I low key think I'd be amazing at it, guys.

8. Be smart financially.

Save, pay off credit cards, keep raising that credit score! We tryna be rich out here.

9. Be a good friend.

I've been trying to contact my friends more frequently. I really try to be a good friend, so I can only hope that they see me that way.

10. Keep up with my hair.

Trims, deep conditions, washes. I have not been treating my crown well, and it shows.

11. Love myself and my life.

I can be very hard on myself and compare my self to others often. This year will be the year of self lovery.

12. Be consistent.

All of these things are great, but they are nothing without consistency.
