I’m back, baby! I strongly believe the gorgeous rainy weather in LA today has woken me up and cured my horrible cold. Ok, I should have been wishing you happy new year yesterday (the first Monday of 2016), but I was one of the lucky ones who literally woke up on January 1st sick. I’m finally feeling (almost) back to normal today, the 5th *chin drop in failure*.

Rainy Day Style / Pretty Haute Mess

El Nino has arrived in Los Angeles, I want this hat and sweater from Bolina ASAP.

I had a great BIG plan to organize my blog calendar for 2016 and blog every day. Cut to today, the second work day of the new year, and I’m ramble blogging with no plan. That’s me guys. I have made no goals to change who I am. Period. Done.

All that being said, I do want to blog lots, but I just don’t think I’ll ever be the type to really plan out every day for each quarter of the year. However, the struggle I always have with blogging as much as I want to is how to make the blog personal, yet relatable and relatable without being generic. I guess this is my preemptive apology for any blog posts that seem super predictable or super ramble’ly and personal… like this one.

As my first post for 2016, I think I should at least address some of my goals for the year. These are not promises or binding contracts, just things I want to work on. I’m going to try to hold myself accountable as best I can.

  • Be more responsible with my health. Eat healthy, take vitamins and exercise CONSISTENTLY. Consistency is the key here, because in the past I’ve been super healthy for 4 months and then completely horrible for 6+ months.
  • Make decision based on strength, not weakness. Whether I’m deciding what to eat for lunch or how to approach a work crisis, I don’t want to make decisions out of weakness (aka: the emotionally easy way out).
  • Travel more. Even if it’s just up North a few hours to San Francisco. This also means going more places at home in Los Angeles. For example, I still haven’t been to The Broad museum and I’m nobody on Instagram until I do.
  • Do more work. Paid or not, I want to work more. I have not added any personal projects to my portfolio for more than 1 year!

Let’s do this guys! Happy fucking new year!!
