The Resolute Beauty Blogger- August 2014

Resolute Beauty Blogger August 2014

Hi Ladies!  Beauty Bloggers Shalunya from Shalunya and Boyet and El from Glossy Glam Blog teamed up to create The Resolute Beauty Blogger. They wanted to do this to not only stay on track with their Beauty Blog Resolutions for 2014 but also to give other beauty bloggers the chance to join in on the action. 

So I'm into my third month of this and still making good progress!!

Blogging Goals

1. Set Up A Blogging Schedule- Still sticking to my Sunday, Tuesday and Friday but there will be a special post tomorrow for the actual 1 year anniversary of my blog!!

2. Change Up The Current Style- This is still in the works. I've been talking to my cousin about how I want to change the site a bit. I also have been thinking about new series to start doing and I actually found my camera and the charger! I also found an editing program on my computer so my videos can start to look better.

3. Learn More About Blogging- I have been surfing the web and researching different blogging tips and the actual history of blogging. I didn't know blogging has only been around for 20 years! It has grown and changed so much during that time! I love all the info I'm finding!

4. Attend A Blogging Event- Yea.....still looking for one, I hope I find something soon!

5. Proof Read Better- I was looking at a post I did last week and found a few typos! Now I read my post out loud and make corrections as I go. 

6. Get Calendar And Blogging Book- I have been using both so much with writing ideas, taking notes on products I've used and mapping out my schedule of when I want to post things. I feel so organized!!

Personal Goals

1. Finding Myself, Figuring Out What I Want To Do- In my post last month, I found these three questions to answer. I'm working on the first one, "Who are you?" and it's really making me think about myself and who I really am. 

2. Wear Makeup More Often- I have been doing this more and can't wait for Fall to wear my berry, wine and red lipsticks! I'm trying to put a good dent in my stash before IMATS next year lol!!

3. Wear Skirts And Dresses More Often- I have been sticking to this and need to get some stockings for Fall and Winter. I had to throw out a bunch because they were too small or had runs. 

4. Use BBW Stash- You guys will be proud that I used two of my favorite discontinued scents last month!! I had to hide that Cool Coconut Surf lol! I can't wait to start wearing Japanese Cherry Blossom and Twilight Woods in the Fall.

5. Be More Prepared and Organized- This has been off and on last month but I'm still working on it. It helps so much when I pack everything the night before so the mornings run smooth. 

6. Not Stress So Much- Siting outside on my lunch break has been helping a lot. I just love listening to the nature and having nothing on my mind. I didn't have too many melt downs last month and been feeling more calm.

So that is it on the Blogging and Personal goals. Have you set goals for yourself? How have you been coming along with them? Comment below and let me know!

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
