Adorable All Day

hello there twenty-twelve.

I don’t really dig new years resolutions.  A year is a long period of time to judge.  How will I know what I want to be working on in 6 months? Plus there’s always that “Well I already messed up. I’m giving up.” mentality that goes along with goals that may have been slightly too ambitious.

This summer I had some resolutions and I discovered that for myself three months is a realistic amount of time to set goals and evaluate them.  I also don’t particularly like the word resolution.  It’s kind of boring.  So I reached out to the trusty  From there I’ve settled on the word moxie.

Courage, bravery, and spunk are all wonderful words I want to associate with this winter.

Seasonal Moxie Winter Edition

  • January Cleanse: no fast food or alcohol for the entire month
  • Figure out a budget and stick to it
  • Read More. At least one book a month, hopefully more than one
  • Make a winter playlist
  • Get art, photos, and other decorative touches up in my apartment
  • Go to the gym at least once a week
  • Buy a new lipstick and wear it semi-regularly
  • Cook 3 new things a month

Some of these overlap with my 25 things to do while I’m 25 which I’m also going to be working on completing.  I like balancing more intimidating items like, figuring out a budget, with fun ones like, buy a new lipstick.  Let me know if you have any rad goals, plans, or suggestions for this year/season/week/whatever!

    I dig your moxie girl, especially that they go with the seasons haha…my main goal for this year is just to enjoy it! I spent so much time in college just existing that it all went by so quickly. Now that I’m done with school (and will actually be making money) my goal is to do fun things and live in the moment! Hence why we need to start planning out Pittsburgh trip soon ;)
