2018 Resolutions.

Hi there! I'm back-- I took a little break last week as my work life got a little insane, but I'm back and better than ever. Last week, I had a major self-care moment, between my first facial (more on that later!), a quick haircut, and some serious R&R after long work days-- I figured I'd continue on that vibe on the blog this week. Starting out, I'd love to share my resolutions for this year.

As I've mentioned before, I love New Year's and it's accompanying resolutions. I usually set a few for myself (see 2016 and 2017), but this year I thought I'd go with a common trend of giving myself a work for the year: wellness. I love this word as it can encompass so much in my life. Let me tell you the ways:

Financial wellness: With student loans newly added to my life and hopes of moving to the city on the horizon, saving and spending money with purpose is still a major goal for me. This is the year!

Physical wellness: I'm lucky that I'm a fairly healthy person, but like others, I could surely shed a few (or a lot of) pounds and eat a little better. I'm hoping to kick my fast food habit (ugh) that I picked up in college to the curb and continue with the low dairy lifestyle that makes me feel the best.

Skin wellness: Seems silly, but as a huge skincare freak (and snob), taking care of my skin is a bigger priority than ever! This year, the focus is on the body. I'm going to be one of those people who moisturizes every day! Here's to a year of soft skin, errwhere.

Mental wellness: My mental health journey has been an interesting one over the past few years, but I am excitingly in a really good place, at the moment. I want to keep this up and keep feeling good!

There you have it! That's what I'll be up to this year, riding that wellness life. I'm super curious, what are your resolutions? Did you go traditional style, or choose a word, like me?

Striped Intentions is laying on your bed, soaking in the sunlight. It's the shadows made by the blinds, lined up and down the sheets. It's wearing a striped shirt every day and not giving a damn. It's the constant search for "effortless chic"-- whatever that is-- and taking care of what you present to the world.
Too, Striped Intentions is a place to feel at home. No matter what you look like or feel like or do with your life, it's a space to appreciate life and all it's tiny details. It's having the best intentions with everything-- as striped with flaws as they may be.
