As I sit here and wonder what 2017 will bring for me, I know that there are a few things I want to achieve. I also know that in order for me to achieve what I want, I need to put some plans into action.
If you don't know me, or follow me on my social media outlets, then you might not know that back in October I purchased my first home! With that, came renovations and an idea of taking Sheer Noir into another direction, incorporating interiors and design. This year, I plan to complete our home renovations and take time to create beautiful spaces. I plan to put more of my time into my blog and launch #SNHOME incorporating my home projects and other beautiful spaces. Finally, I hope to continue working with great brands and take Sheer Noir one step further.
Towards the end of 2016 I began feeling uninspired, and decided that this year I want to take my travels back to my roots, in Europe. Its been 6 years since my last adventure there and I have been craving it ever since. To me, nothing feeds my soul more then travel, it teaches you to be more with less, it takes you out of your comfort zone, and most importantly, it'll inspire you. Trust me when I say, you will never regret the money you spend on flights.
Focus on my health.
This year I plan to focus more on my health in all aspects, be it physical, mental and emotional. If there is one aspect of myself that I know for sure I need need to take better care of, it is to stress less. I think this is something almost everyone can relate to. Be it the little things, or things we cannot control. For me, my career with the railroad can be extremely demanding. I endure time sensitive, high profile situations daily which takes a lot out of me. Going forward I plan to leave work at work, and focus on all of the positive aspects of my life.
When I decided a few years ago that I wanted buy a home, I knew that the only way I would be able to save up enough money, was to cut back on life's luxuries, otherwise known as treating myself. This year, I plan not to skimp out on spa days, hair cuts or skin care and really take the time to treat myself for all the hard work I've put in to get to where I am now.
Just Be Happy.
