Even thought I don't believe in New Year's resolutions, I find it important to take a look back at the year ending and fix new goals at the start of the year. I need to reflect on what I've done and where I'm going and the start of the new year is a good time to do that. I divided my goals in two categories; wellness and career.
On the wellness side:
-Read 15 books
-Make myself at home in our new house
-Spend more time creating
-Go back to my workout habit
-Do 5 to 10 photo-shoots like I use too for fun
-Run a 10k
-Register on some fun creative courses, like stone setting.
On the career side:
-Take care of my business like I do for others (I help others more than I help myself, through Etsy local teams volunteering for example.
-Take some business related courses
-Increase my social stats; I'd like to double my followers on Bloglovin', Instagram and Facebook. Facebook will be quite a challenge because I'm not that active.
-Etsy shop: maintain 150 active listing, and at least 50 of them available to Etsy Wholesale, have my work into 5 new retailers, have 400 sales this year.
-Figure out my career path. make an actual realistic and doable plan to guide me.
-Get my driver's license. I now live into the woods so if I want to get out, see my friends, go to a course or anything, it would me more than awesome to be able to go by myself.
What are your goals for this year? Are they more of the wellness or career side?
Just because you’re the kind of girl who prefers staying at home with for a night-long Netflix binge to a night on the town, doesn’t mean that you cannot look fabulously stylish around the clock. In recent times, more and more fashion companies have been producing clothing which is comfortable, pretty and perfect for spending quality time at home.
To ensure you’re never caught out looking less than your best, should someone unexpectedly call, you just need to get organized and create a casual wardrobe that will be the envy of everyone. Here’s how:
Find Your Comfort Factor
If you’re serious about comfort, the first thing you should do is take stock of the clothes currently residing in your closet. Assess them not only by style but also by comfort. If an item of clothing is not appealing to you in terms of comfort, put it to one side. Do the same with your comfy clothes, so that you are left with two piles.
Now, you can see just what kinds of clothing you find comfortable, whether that be Vanilla Night & Day lingerie or your favorite pair of yoga pants, and which you could do without. This will help you to identify the best pieces for you when you add to your lazy lady’s wardrobe.
Choose Neutral Colours
When it comes to comfort, mixing and matching is often the best way to achieve the level of luxury you want, which is why it is a good idea to either choose neutral pieces or ensure that all of your comfy clothing is complementary. After all, you might look comfy in your lime green leggings, purple hoody, and pink vest, but you aren’t going to win any style awards!
Buttons, zips, and hooks may look great, but they make getting dressed more effort than it needs to be. Go for simple tie waist ropes, pull on tops, and stretch fabrics and you’ll be dressing effortlessly every day.
Choose Classically Simple Styles
There are lots of classic, fashionable looks that are both comfortable and externally stylish, Things like kimonos, ballet pumps, and trapeze and shift dresses are all super-comfy, and you’ll never have to be embarrassed about being seen in them.
Design a Simple Work Uniform
Just because you’ve left school, doesn’t mean that you can’t have a uniform. Work clothing is often the thing that trips lazy ladies up the most, After all, they cannot go to work in their bunny slippers and fluffy pink dressing gown. However, by creating a simple ‘uniform’ consisting of say a simple shift dress, black shoes and a tailored blazer when it’s cold, it is possible to be comfortable and effortless when dressing for work, while still looking professional.
Pimp Your Pajamas
Pajamas are the staple of comfort-loving lazy ladies everywhere, so why not ensure that they look good? Silk pajamas are a timeless classic, but there are lots of other options out there for fashionistas who want to look good in their jammies.
Hopefully, you’ve gotten some great ideas for looking your best while maintaining your comfort, now all you need to do is put this advice into practice, and you’ll be the best-dressed lounge-lizard around.
