(Now if only my unpacking process would do the same.)
Here are my January new years resolutions: 1. Read more books. Now that I am out of school I can read the books that I never had time for. My goal is two a month. 2. Get outside more. Simple enough I just need to do it. 3. Eat healthier. More veggies. Less soda and junk. 4. Get active again. I need to find a fun way to stay in shape that wont drive me crazy. 5. Spend less money on small things. Spend more money on big things. (like trips!)
Here is my April progress report: 1. I read one, but its a long one! So it should count as two. 2. Its cold and rainy! I got out on the sunny days. 3. I have been eating waaay less junk, soda is a whole different topic. Luckily Trader Joe's is only 2 blocks away from me now! 4. I have been out walking around way more. There are so many fun things to walk to in my new neighborhood. I love it. 5. I still need to save up for a camera, but moving is expensive. Yikes.
Please ignore my excuses for not getting some of these done :)
Is it summer yet? As much as I love this scarf I am getting tired of needing to wear it.
Okay, lets be honest for a little while. I could make excuses I could blame it on the move, but there is no one to blame for only have 5 photos of the day for 13 days. Worst part is that I have no idea what day I took them on. Oh well can only go up from here!

This wall is right outside my office. PERFECT spot for future photoshoots.

I made this photo as big as possible so you could see what awesomeness is just a block from my work. Yup, that is right a PSYCHIC BARBER. A two for one deal! Will someone please go here and let me tag along.

I go to El Chupacabra on Alki so often that I have almost run out of things to take photos of. Here is a groovy lamp. I love the color! Dom and I can be considered "regulars" now. They know exactly what we order when we walk in.

We finally got all of our stuff moved in and I received a call that there was a vintage formica table two blocks down hill from us. So instead of being intelligent I decided to walk, and luckily I have a trooper of a boyfriend/roomate and he tagged along with me. Once I decided that the table was the love of my life we realized we had to walk it up hill for 2 extremely long blocks. I am glad Dan was there to provide comic relief for this situation otherwise I would have been a cranky mess. At least it wasn't raining!

Just when you think there are no more photo opportunities at El Chupacabra life gives you one. Please note Dom in the background blocking the wind from popping my bubble.
and I thought that I would share a few of my absolute favorites.
I got my Clarisonic for Christmas and my skin has drastically improved since then.
I try and use this bad boy most nights before bed.
I use it with this:
Such a great product to use with our without a Clarisonic.
The texture is freakishly smooth.
Clinique clarifying lotion is an addiction of mine.
I use it daily especially in the harsh winter months.
I have tried out so many different facial lotions and nothing has compared to this Kiehl's one. No matter how much I use my face never feels sticky and a little goes a long way. LOVE.
On bad weeks I use this mask from Origins. I always feel so fresh after I use it and my skin clears up really fast after I use it. Out of all of these this is the product that I have used the longest.
Last but not least floss picks. I am such a lazy flosser. I put a bag of these by my shower and floss while I am in the shower. I love hot showers and any excuse to stay in a little longer is fine by me. If you find that you tend to not floss enough you should try flossing in the shower.
Oh silly March why did you have to go by so fast? Let's see how these resolutions are going. Once again here is a refresher:
1. Read more books. Now that I am out of school I can read the books that I never had time for. My goal is two a month. 2. Get outside more. Simple enough I just need to do it.3. Eat healthier. More veggies. Less soda and junk.4. Get active again. I need to find a fun way to stay in shape that wont drive me crazy.5. Spend less money on small things. Spend more money on big things. (like trips!)
How good/horrible did I do?
1. I only read the one bookclub book and about 3 fashion magazines.
2. Umm... I don't know about this one.
3. I have been eating way healthier. Yeah girl!
4. I went fishing! Does that count? I was sore for two days after fishing. I have been walking around tons more at work.
5. Boom. Yes I haven't been able to spend money because I have been saving it for our new apartment!
