Happy New Year! Our 2016 goals!

Happy New Year!!!
As we welcomed in 2016, we had a think about some of the things we would like to accomplish this year. 2015 was the year we told ourselves we were going to work harder than ever before and we honestly feel like we did just that. From starting our You Tube channel, to getting 3 posts up a week plus book reviews on our blog, on top of full time jobs and learning Italian and working out, we were proud of ourselves and felt like we could happily tick off lots of goals for that year. So heading into 2016 here are some of the goals we are determined to have accomplished by the end of the year! :)

Complete my little writing project.
I love, love, love to read but I've always wanted to write my own stories. I've had a lot of ideas over the past year and have made tons of progress writing and getting my thoughts on paper. I'm determined this year to really focus and believe in myself enough to finish my books! :)

Keep enjoying and working hard at the gym.
I have thoroughly been enjoying the gym over the past few months. I love going with my husband as I feel like it's a fun way to spend time together and connect. It's also a lot easier staying on track when you have a gym buddy. Since I stopped wrestling I feel the gym has become a lot more relaxed for me and I don't stress myself out over it so much, in turn I always look forward to going and find myself a lot happier! :) In 2016 I am determined to continue this positive outlook and routine but also push myself a lot more and really see a difference in certain parts of my body that id like to change! :)

Be more confident!
I feel like this is something I say I am going to be every single day but it doesn't always come easy to me. Whether it be with fashion, makeup, nipping out and about and holding my head high or when it comes to having confidence about the way I do things, such as this blog or our youtube channel or the way we take pictures, sometimes it's all too easy to get caught up in what others look like or how pretty their Instagram page is or if they have so many followers, it's not something I dwell on all the time, as I love what Kelly and I do and am incredibly proud, as with my own fashion sense, :p but every now and again I can feel down about certain things. I started making progress in changing my mindset in 2015 and I am even more focused on being confident and happy with oneself going into 2016. :)

Complete Level 5 of Rosetta Stone Italian. 
I am currently on Level 4 but have actually had a bit of a break due to moving, packing and spending time with family. I really want to get back into my 3-4 times a week schedule and see myself complete it all by the end of the year! :)

Connect with more bloggers.
I would love to meet more people and create a bigger circle of blogger friends. I love finding new and interesting blogs to read. It's always fun to meet like minded people who share the same interests as me and who love to spread positivity and happiness too!

Try harder to not feeling guilty about everything!!
I am always justifying my actions and feelings to my husband and sister and sometimes it gets too much. I am the kind of person that can feel guilty about absolutely everything and it can really get exhausting. This year I want to try and make decisions and be happy with them. You can't please everyone and as much as I always feel like I have to think about how everyone else feels, as long as I know I have acted with honesty and good intentions, I have to let things go and be happy with my decisions! 

A goal for us together, though some of the ones above we will be practicing together too, is through this blog, through our YouTube channel and just in life in general, we always want to strive each day to be kind people, to inspire those around us, to lift them up and be a source of encouragement and positivity in life. The world needs a lot more love right now and we feel if everyone chose to spread smiles and to love their neighbor we will be one step closer to making a change! :)

We wish all of you the absolute best for a happy and healthy 2016 and if you have any goals we would love to read them below! :)

Be happy, be you and remember to Dream Big!! :)
Love Lucy and Kelly

  1. Lucy I'm so excited to read your books when they're finished, you clearly have a talent for writing :)I think you and Kelly should both be so very proud of how well you've done with your blog, stunned at how rapidly it's grown. As I've mentioned before it's the only blog I read, your Youtube video's are great too and you're both such adorable/likeable people. As Enzo and Cass would say, YOU CAN'T TEACH THAT.

    Kelly your progress with learning Italian is mindblowing to me, totally blows me away and I find it incredibly inspiring. I'm going to start learning Maltese soon (lot's of Italian in that) and I see you as a great example.

    You two are a shining example of being beautiful on the inside and out, plenty to be confident about for both of you :)
