A New Year for New Goals

Happy New Year!!! It’s 2018!! I can not believe that it is a new year already, 2017 definitely went by a lot faster than I realized it did. Last year was not a great year for me but it was by no means a horrible year either.  However, I am truly ready for the new year and the fresh beginning that it gives us all . Like most people, I like to set myself goals for the new year and this year I wanted to make sure that I keep the goals that I have set myself. This year I have four goals that I want to accomplish by the end of this year. Here are my goals for this year:

Being Overall Healthy

This is probably the one of the goals that almost everyone has on this new year’s goals. I really want to focus on being a healthy person this year. I want to get better at a workout schedule and sticking with it.  Also, I want to be healthier with my mind. I want to make sure that I am not putting it on the back burner and taking the time to make mind healthier.

Be Money Smart

I want to take this year to learn about how to invest my money and to start really saving for things that I would like to buy in the future. I want to be building credit, making smart moves with my money and not spending it on silly things. I want to set a budget myself so that I can monitor my spending habits and start building a saving.

Be More Adventurous

This goal is the one goal that I want to make sure that no matter want happens I  will make it happen. I have quite a few places on my bucket list that I would like to check off this year. I want to try a new hobby, meet new people, try new food and maybe even live in a new city. I am tired of being afraid of living safely anymore. I want to live the life that I have been dreaming of and I can’t do that if I don’t take a leap of faith. I am more than ready than I will ever be. I really can’t wait to see where I will go or who I will meet or what I will try.

Better Organization 

If you don’t know me I can be very disorganized and be okay with it. However, I really want to try to be as organized as I can be this year. I feel that this will let me be more creative. I also want to be organized with my planner and use it. I am notorious for buying a planner and only using it for a few days. This year will be the year of organizing for me.

Who knows what 2018 will hold but I am very excited for it !

What goals do you have for 2018?

Much Love,

Brynn

A Cozy Playlist

Nothing beats a rainy, fall day with lit candles sprinkled around the room, with a cozy playlist on, reading a great new book. Music can put the finishing touch to any atmosphere that you want to create. I put together a playlist of songs that I feel that creates a cozy vibe, so whenever I put it on I can feel cozy.

The title of my playlist is A Cozy Fall Vibe and you can find on Spotify here.

Do you have a cozy fall playlist or music you only play during fall?

Fall Bucket List

Fall is my favorite time the year. I just love the feeling of cool crisp air and the warm sunlight that hits your skin. I always like putting together a list of things that I want to do during each season. However, with fall my bucket lists always seem longer than any other seasons.

  • Carve a pumpkin
  • Visit a corn maze
  • Bake fall cookies
  • Have some apple cider
  • Tailgate
  • Watch the Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Have a PSL or two
  • Bake a homemade pie
  • Go, Apple Picking
  • Have a candy apple
  • Make caramel corn
  • Have a Halloween movies marathon
  • Go on a hike
  • Go antiquing
  • Wear sweaters
  • Have a fall brunch
  • Go to a farmers market
  • Decorate for fall
  • Visit a winery
  • Read a good book
  • Have a soup picnic
  • Start holiday shopping
  • Try a new pumpkin recipe
  • Go for a hayride
  • Light fall candles

What is something you have to do to make you feel like fall is fully here?

Much Love,

Travel Bucket List

I have been very lucky to have been introduced to traveling at such a young age when I went to go visit my sister in Japan. Even since then I have been compiling a list of places in the world that I want to visit before I die. Traveling is such an adventure and a life lesson all wrapped up in one.  Not only do you get to meet new people, you get to lose yourself in a different world and learn something new about yourself. You don’t have to be rich to travel the world you just have to make it one of your priorities in life. I always joke with my mom that the only reason I work is so I can travel the world. My dream job would have to be to travel the world and discover new places. I have a feeling that this list will forever be changing.

  • Boston, Mass.
  • San Francisco, California
  • Seattle, Washington
  • Las Vegas
  • Charleston, South Carolina
  • Savannah, Georgia
  • Napa, California
  • Montreal, Quebec
  • Vancouver
  • Toronto
  • Amsterdam, Netherlands
  • Rome, Italy
  • Barcelona, Spain
  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Valencia, Spain
  • Edinburgh, Scotland
  • Brighton, England
  • Salzburg, Austria
  • Vienna, Austria
  • Berlin, Germany
  • Oslo, Norway
  • Copenhagen, Denmark
  • Florence, Italy
  • Lisbon, Portugal
  • Marrakech, Morocco
  • Rio De Janerio, Brazil
  • Havana, Cuba
