Looking Forward

Another year has flown by and its time to get inspired for the new year ahead. I have been trying to think of new years resolutions that are actually attainable (i.e.goals that last more than just this month). I believe that starting small is the best course of action. Most resolutions are surrounded by becoming a healthier YOU. Whether that is taking a 30 minute walk twice a week or training for a marathon, taking care of your health is vital. As we all put together our resolutions, I thought I would share some of my top items to get motivated.

These Alo leggings are super fun and a great way to get excited about working out. I practice Vinyasa flow yoga and Alo is a superb brand that is worth the price tag.

Making sure to take off your makeup BEFORE your sweat session is vital to keeping your skin healthy. This Korean brand oil to foam cleanser looks like a good one. This quirky product is part of there Lazy & Easy line that I thought was fitting for how I feel at the moment.

I have been wearing these Adidas Pure Boost’s for the past six months and I have to say they are pretty comfortable. I love the sock-like lining and the comfort of the sole. Investing in one pair of sneakers that can work for multiple activities is the way to go. My tip for keeping the white part bright is taking a magic eraser to it about once a month.

This little cutie is a perfect place to plan out your days. This planner by Mochi Things fits right in your purse or backpack for convenience while your on the go. If you have never used a planner before, this one is non-intimidating with just enough structure to ease you into it. I personally think the cactus cover is the most fun.

If you are oily like me or are looking for a soft-matte finish to your skin, Murad’s MattEffect is your new BFF. Inspired by the ever trending Korean beauty industry, this cushion compact can be used in multiple ways. You can use it alone over your moisturized skin for a poreless fresh look, or on top of makeup focusing on oily areas. Gently tapping the pad into the pink cushion picks up just enough product to deliver great results. I have one both in my purse and at my desk making it one of my must-have products for the new year.

 

Cheers to 2017!
