How to Reach Your Goals!

IMG_0802

Hey, ya’ll! How are you? It’s so crazy that it is already JUNE! I can’t believe it, where has the time gone! I know everyone says that, but seriously, I’m failing at my yearly goals. How are you doing at your goals? Leave me a comment to let me know. We only have 6 months to get it together ūüė©

Here are a few of my New Years ResSome of my goals I want to achieve are:

  • Be healthier – I feel like I am doing so/so with this. I haven’t been eating pizza as much.
  • Save money- FAILING! My name is Joniamac and I’m a shopaholic.
  • Learn a foreign language – I really want to learn ASL. I use to know quite a bit when I was younger, and I want to learn how to sign.
  • Blogging goals: each month I set goals of what I want to achieve, my main goal is to blog more.

These are just a few of my goals. The next 6 months I’m going to work hard for them and for the next year.

So how are we going to achieve our goals? Here are some tips I find helpful:

  • Set Goals that MOTIVATES you! – You have got to want it. If your goals motivate you, it means it‚Äôs important to you.
  • Make sure your goals are REALISTIC. If you make goals that are impossible (so to speak) then you will feel defeated.
  • Make sure your goals are CLEAR. For example, say your goal is to learn a foreign language. It‚Äôs a good goal but it‚Äôs not clear because there are so many languages to learn and it doesn‚Äôt help you move in the direction you want to go in. Maybe you want to learn Japanese because you plan on doing an internship in Japan, or French because you plan on moving to Paris.
  • Have an ACTION PLAN– How are you going to achieve your goals. Most goals take work. Take them step by step!
  • SEE IT! Write down your goals, make it a checklist. Make sure you put it somewhere you can see it. I put my goals on my vision board, it helps me see and keep track of what I am trying to achieve (when I‚Äôm not being lazy) To help me keep up with my daily/weekly goals, I use an app called Clear. Clear is great¬†because 1) My to-do list is on my phone. I don‚Äôt have to worry about writing it down on a sticky note and miss placing it. 2) You can create multiple organized, categorized list (whatever you want to name your list) 3) You can set a reminder for your task. 4) You can personalize the list with a theme. Click here for the link.
  • TELL PEOPLE your goals. It can be your best friend(s), your family, someone that you have a connection with. If you tell someone your goal, you are more likely to accomplish your goals. I finally told my friends that I was going to start blogging, tell them held me accountable.
  • Have a DEADLINE- Set a time on when you want to accomplish your goal(s).

17 Hot Runway Trends of 2017: Spring/Summer

I’m so excited for Spring Trends! There are so many bold, colorful and fun fashion statements. I need to start my Spring shopping. Some of these¬†trends you may already have seen all over social media and hopefully, I told you about some trends you haven’t seen yet.

Here are some of my favorite trends from the Runway. I hope you get some great inspiration! ūüėÄ (P.S. this blog is long)

1. Bold Stripes- Bold and colorful. This trend you can wear a separate piece or top to bottom stripes. This trend you can get tops, skirts, dresses, pants, blazers. I think this style is a classic and will be trendy at least until next spring.

2. Khaki tones – I like the olive and dark green color. The great thing about khaki tones is that you can pair it with pretty much any other color. Plus khaki and olive green look really good on so many skin tones. These looks are great inspiration for work outfits or casual wear.

3. All Yellow-head to toe, banana. I use to wear color all the time in my high school days and early 20s. I’m not sure what happened but I feel like I never wear color that much anymore. With color being in the Spring Runways, I was in love. My goal is to wear more color (bright colors).

4. All Blue-¬†I’m blue da ba dee da ba daa. This trend is about wearing different shades of blue in your outfit. Or you can wear the same shade of blue in different textures like Zendaya did for her Seventeen Magazine photo shoot. Looking at the other trends for Spring, you will see lots of blue.

5. Bra Top- I’m excited that crop top/bra tops are still trendy. When it’s a 100 degrees outside during the summer and humid, sometimes less clothing is best. But with this trend, you can wear a bra top in many ways. By its self, over a tee shirt, a baggy jacket over it, a sheer top over.

6. Ruffles- To me, ruffles say a great timeūüíÉūüŹĺ. But it’s also a soft, feminine romantic¬†look. You’re going to see a lot of ruffles in tops; ruffles in the shoulder area, particular one shoulder tops and on the sleeves of the arm(s). You will also see the ruffle trend in asymmetrical dresses and voluminous skirts.

7. Neon- Standout and be bright. If neon scares you, you can add a little bit to your outfit. For example, add a pop of neon to your all black outfit.

8. Single Shoulder Cutout– whether its a single cutout or you pull your shirt to the side for that cool asymmetric look.

9. Patchwork- For sure, we will be seeing this trend on everything such as denim jeans and shorts, denim jackets, bomber jackets, accessories like purses and tote bags. This is just a few examples. What’s cool about patchwork is that you can buy a look or create your own. With the patchwork is about mixing vintage fabrics and mixing prints and fabrics.

10. Flatforms- a way to make you taller without the heels! AHHHHHH. So basically, Flatforms are platforms heels with a flat sole. You can get flatforms in sandals or sneaker style and pretty much in every color. Depending on what style you are looking for you can find them from Public Desire, Urban Outfitters, Asos, even payless (which mine should be in the mail!)

11. PINK- Pink is a big trend this year. Whether it’s a baby bubble gum pink, pastel¬†pink, ¬†bright pink or a dark pink. Your look can be head to toe pink or you can pair it with red, blue, yellow, orange, purple, brown, white, or black.

12.¬†All denim/ Unique denim- All denim, All day. Denim that is different and “untraditional” whether its jeans, jackets, dresses, skirts, tops.

13. Flower Girl-Floral was all over the runways for Spring. You can wear a floral top, skirt, pants, shorts, a maxi dress, blazer, trench coat with a solid piece or head to toe floral, or a two piece. You can also mix and match the floral patterns, as long as they are in the size as floral or color tones. On the runway there were so many different looks, you can do a soft romantic floral pattern, bold, colorful, or for a retro inspired look.

14. Athletic Wear- The cool thing about wearing athletic wear is one you look like you are ‚Äúfit‚ÄĚ or at least you think that you do lol. Think Adidas tracksuit or Juicy Couture sweats. You can wear the track pants and jacket together or dress up the track pants with a button down top. Target has theses really cute track pants, I bought them but I forgot that I’m 4’10 (on a good day) and they were too big and too long.

15. Graphic Tee- graphic tees are always fun. You don’t have to do the normal band tee. I’ve seen some great graphic tees from forever 21 where they are ripped or have the lace tie up. I seen many bloggers at NYFW wear graphic tees with a powerful/inspiring/political message on it. Think graphic tees with an edge to your outfit.

16. White out- all white, oversized dress shirt, flowy, sheer, romantic look. You can complete the look with white, nude, or black shoes or go for a shoe with pop of color such as red, teal, or pink.
