It’s A New Year!


The new year is here and we have a fresh new canvas to fill up!

#. Infinity Pool: I’m setting the bar high this year. Infinity pool photos are seemingly everywhere and I’m determined to workout till summer and take a dip in one!

#. Splits: For the past couple of weeks I’ve been doing split stretches against the wall. Of course I’m closer to 90 degrees than I am to 180, but I figure I should get there in a year right?!

#. Travel Log: Can there be a slower travel log? I still need to write about my adventures in Venice and Rome but I seem to have gotten stuck at Switzerland. I believe I’ll do one last post to wrap up Switzerland and move on to Venice before I forget everything that happened.

#. Film Reviews: I probably watched over 50 films last year, but only posted a grand total of two reviews. This year I want to post at least 10 reviews, especially for the ones that are my all time favorites.

#. Read 5 Classic Books: Before I started taking literature classes in grad school, I had no interest in readings classics. They seemed to be long and boring and wasn’t there a movie? After having to read them for the sake of class participation and writing papers, I found that there were a lot of interesting themes to think about within the books. This year I won’t be taking any more literature classes, but I’d like to continue reading more classics.

Your turn ♥ What are some of your goals for the new year?

    I’ll be spending 2 weeks in Italy this year. I’d LOVE to hear about your experience in Venice and Rome.

      Oooh how exciting!! 2 weeks!! In that case I’ll have to get right to it! Do you know when you’ll be traveling there?

      • rchiariello

        Not until May/June. I’m fully expecting Italy to be packed with tourists by then, but I’m sure it will still be enjoyable. :)

        • Kim

          I think Italy is worth traveling to regardless of the hoards of people because there is so much to feast your eyes on!

    I’ve enjoyed reading your review of beauty products, and can’t wait for you to blog more about travel, and above on your list :)
    Cheers to an amazing 2016!

      Happy New Year Tiff! So glad you enjoyed my reviews :)
      I’ll continue to blog more about beauty products as well as more travel posts!

  • Ah, I’m pretty good at backlogging the places I visit too haha. I can’t wait to hear about Venice and Rome! I think splits are a gradual thing, I think you can do it within a year if you practice every day! I remember Blogilates having a video on that (she did it on the London Bridge) iirc, and I love how she didn’t care about passerbys haha.

      Hehe, I think I got stuck for a while there with the Switzerland posts, because mountains are hard to capture with words and I got unlucky with the weather :P I’ll have too look up the Blogilates video. Splits on the London Bridge sounds awesome lol

  • rae

    Sounds like you have some really good goals in mind for 2016 already! Can’t wait for your film reviews, lady!

      Gotta start the new year with a bang right? ;)
      Hopefully I’ll be able to keep this energy and enthusiasm going as the weeks go by! :P

      • rae

        I am sure you will manage it, lady! xx

  • These all sound awesome, I love reading and it’s such a good idea to add in some classic books to my list. There’s a lot of goals I’ve been thinking about for this year, but one that comes to mind is really de-cluttering (physically, mentally, etc) so I can focus on what I really like and want without the distraction of a mess.

    • Kim

      Ahh, I need to declutter a bit myself too! I started to last month but got swept away by all the holiday cheer lol

  • I agree with your statement number 5!! I also set a goal for how many books I wanted to read this year.

    anyway Wishing you a Happy New Year with the hope that you will have many blessings in the year to come!!


    • Kim

      I should probably get started on it, but I haven’t been able to decide which book I want to start off with lol :P What kind of books do you enjoy reading?

  • The infinity pool is such a good goal!!

    • Kim

      Hehe, I thought it would be more fun than just doing “more exercise” ;)
