The time has come again to reflect on the year past and re-set focus and goals for the year ahead. If you’ve been following my blog you know I’m a big believer in conscious intention setting to create who you want to be and the life you want to live.

In prepping for this post, I read my 2017 beauty resolutions and have to admit my year end report card is about 50% (classic NY resolution struggle) but beauty is about experimenting, being creative and feeling good, so while I’m hoping to stick to my beauty plans a little more this year, I’m always open to changing course. That being said, I chose less resolutions and set some timelines this year, in hopes of getting a passing grade at the end of 2018 <3

Fun Fact: In numerology 2018 is a master year because it reduces to the number 11 (2+0+1+8=11.) The number 11 is an intense and high vibrational number connected to the mystical realms (think 11:11 make a wish) that give us extra push to grow and transform how we choose this year.


I’m a skincare first kind of girl and the more I learn about products and our skin, the more I realize the counter-productive effect foundations and powders have on my skin’s health and vitality. This is NO way means I’ll never wear foundation again. By the end of Summer I’d like to choose to use foundation for a night out, but also feel good passing if I want during work days or running errands.


Keeping a beautiful and organized space is very tied to self-care for me. When my space is clear, my mind is clear. I’ve accumulated quite a few products this year (no complaints!) that have inevitably ended up in a box to the side of my closet or piled on top of each other. In the next two months, I’ve decided to invest in some beauty organizers to properly display and organize my space. Once it’s done, I’ll be sharing the details and progress with all of you!


This was an intention from last year that just did not happen. I’ve been getting my nails done with shellac for the last 5 years, and after a few weeks without, I cave. Not only are the gel products and UV light used simply bad for my health, if I did a quick calculation of the money spent, I know it would be an uncomfortable figure. This year I’ll only have my nails done with shellac for special occasions (weddings, travel, that’s it.)


Happy New Year to you all, and best wishes for the brightest 2018!
