The Resolute Beauty Blogger- November 2014

Happy Sunday!! How was your Thanksgiving? Did you go shopping on Black Friday? I had a great Thanksgiving with family and enjoyed some family time. Well I am half way through the year with my goals. Let's see the progress I made for this month.

Blogging Goals

1. Set A Blogging Schedule- I have still been sticking to my Sunday, Tuesday and Friday schedule.

2. Change Up The Current Style- I haven't much with my site yet but it is in the works.

3. Learn More About Blogging- I haven't done anymore research but still looking over the information I have collected. 

4. Attend A Blogging Event- Still looking for an even to attend. I was planning on going to the Holiday Pop Up Makeup Show but some scheduling conflicts came up so I have to miss this year. :( I am looking forward to IMATS again!!

5. Proof Read Better- I have been really working on this. I make sure to read over my post twice before publishing. I haven't seen many typos or mistakes lately. 

6. Get A New Blogging Calendar and Book- I'm still using both, I was planning out posts for next month the other day. 

Personal Goals

1. Use BBW Stash More- I have used Sensual Amber almost the whole month. I need to switch it out soon and use another scent.

2. Wear Makeup More Often- I have been wearing it more, almost everyday of the week. Even if I don't get to wear a full face, I would usually wear is eyeliner, mascara, some blush and some color on the lips.

3. Be More Prepared and Organized- There have been some days I'm rushing and trying to pack stuff in the morning but for the most part I'm still packing lunches and bags the night before. I'm also waking up earlier so I have more time to get ready.

4. Wear Dresses and Skirts More Often- I fell off on this one. I think I wore a dress once this month and have just been wearing pants. I'm going to focus more on this next month.

5. Not Stress So Much- I have been doing okay with this. As long as I have a quiet place to eat lunch, I'm good. I haven't had many breakdowns this month but I've had my moments. It is still a work in progress but it's improving.

6. Finding Myself and Figuring Out What I Want To Do- I have been driving myself a little crazy with this one. There is so much what I want to do but can't narrow it down. I just want to make sure I pick the right career path and its something I will be happy with. I have been on the computer and my phone applying for jobs like crazy. I'm determined to find something before the new year. I know someone has to call me back for an interview. I'm starting to find my focus and drive again. I'm determined to make things better for myself and my family. 

So that is it for my monthly goals. What goals have you been working on? How are you coming along with them? Comment below and let me know. Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend and its back to work tomorrow! See you guys on Tuesday!!

Happily Ever Johnson:Tastings and Things

The countdown to this wedding is getting real. April is around the corner and the big day will be here soon! I have starting stressing about the small details and hoping we have everything. We got to do the fun stuff recently, food tasting! I know that was the thing we were both looking forward to. We first had our food tasting at the venue. You were able to bring family members to the tasting and you got to experience the full service during the reception and everything on the menu. I liked that everyone was given a paper with a description of all the menu items so you knew what you were eating and take notes about each dish. I found it helpful to have some other people with us so you got an idea of what the majority of guest would like and different opinions about each dish. We narrowed down what dishes we wanted on our menu and they were all so good!

Us after the tasting

My son was super exciting to do the cake tasting with us! He just wanted lemon cake and wanted us to have lemon…

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…

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…
