YOU GUYSSSS.. It is officially 2016!!! I know what I'm about to say is the most cliché thing ever, but it literally feels like 2015 just started. But I can't lie, overall it was a very good year: I graduated from college and got to have my parents at my ceremony, I got to travel abroad three times, I still have tons of blogging years in me, I'm healthy, I'm happy.. so I really can't complain. But I think it's time to turn it up a notch this year. That's why I went ahead and created a list of goals to work towards this year!

On top of the things I really need to accomplish within the first few weeks of this year, is to find a full-time job I absolutely love to do. Honestly, the ideal situation for me would be to become a full-time blogger and work from home. But since bills are a real thing, I have to find a more realistic job for now that's all about fashion and marketing! At least, until my blog becomes profitable enough for me to live comfortably. But I'm confident that day's gonna come when it's time.
☏ Find my Dream Apartment
Along with finding a job, I also need to find a new apartment soon. Preferably one with more than one bedroom to create a home office or a walk-in closet.. or both! But to find a place big enough, I gotta make sure I am able to afford one first. So finding an apartment and finding a job really go hand in hand. But I've been collecting tons and tons of interior inspiration on Pinterest, so I'm very sure I'll be able to transform any space into my own little dream home.
✈ Feed into my Wanderlust
Being an island girl and moving to a much bigger city in the Netherlands has opened my eyes to so many new experiences. But sadly enough, I haven't experienced Europe as much as I had hoped for within the past five years. So I really want to change that this year. Lately I've had such an urge to just wander off in various cities and just appreciate the city life. Be sure to follow my new Instagram account @WanderingTheCity if you have a wanderlust as well.
♥ Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
I was probably the most into regularly working out last year right before my birthday. And I really really want to get back into some sort of routine. I haven't been eating as healthy as I probably should for the last couple of months and sometimes it just makes me feel really crappy about myself. Whenever I was working out, eating healthy and seeing positive results, it just motivated me so much and made me feel a lot more confident. I really want to bring that positiveness back into my daily life.
☼ Celebrate the Little Things
As my last goal for this year, I just really want to appreciate life more. I want everyday to have lots of happy and zen moments. I want to laugh more, love more, live more and experience more. So whenever I'm having a bad day (because that's totally okay), I want to still find the good in each day!
I think these five goals are very realistic and I'll do my best attempt at sticking to all of them throughout the year. Honestly can't wait to see where my life has taken me once 2017 rolls around. But first, I'm giving 2016 my all!
A very happy happy new year to each and everyone of you, I hope your year is as amazing as you want it to be! What are some of your new year's resolutions?
