 Bringing in 2018 in Style!

Bringing in 2018 in Style!

 

 

Happy 2018 Lovelies,

I'm closing out 2017 feeling truly blessed, it was an amazing year in so many different ways and in so many different areas of my life.  There's just so much that I thank God for but some of the highlights include getting engaged, getting promoted at work,  traveling adventures, and staying committed to another year of fitness. 

I spent some time earlier today creating a vision board reflecting some of my goals and desires for the new year. While I usually write down my goals and dreams, it is my first vision board, and I really enjoyed the process of creating it.  There're a number of things I want to achieve in 2018, and I'm sharing a few of them with you below: 

1. Eat clean. I fine-tuned my workout regimen, and this year I really hope to eat more healthy foods and implement a clean diet. I watched a number of videos on Youtube and collected a few recipes to get me started. I'm excited about this change.

2. I'm getting married in 2018 (*happy dance*) so you can only imagine that wedding planning is in full swing. I want my wedding to beautiful and smooth sailing. I'll be sharing my wedding planning process with you here on the blog and on my Youtube channel.

3. Continue to grow as a blogger and a Youtuber. I enjoy the blogging and the blogging community. I hope to collaborate and partner with other bloggers and brands this year. Doing my first press trip and covering the Martha's Vineyard African-American film festival were two of my blogging highlights from 2017, I look forward to even more highlights in 2018. 

4. Give myself permission to shine. Because playing small doesn't serve anyone.

5. Become involved in at least one community organization. I truly believe that "service is the rent we pay for room on this Earth."

What are some of your goals for 2018? I'd love to hear please share!

Cheers,
~Nika
