Resolute Beauty Blogger-February and March 2015

Happy Thursday!!! Things have been a little crazy this week and kinda glad I have a day off tomorrow to relax and get some stuff done. Well I didn't update on my goals last month so I am combining them with this month's progress. I'm almost at the end of this and so amazed at how far I've come. Let's get into how I've been progressing with my goals!!

Blogging Goals

1. Set A Blogging Schedule- Before I started my new full time status, I had my set Sunday, Tuesday and Friday schedule. After taking a small break to get adjusted to everything, my new schedule is now Sunday and Thursday. It took a little bit to figure out a schedule that was really going to work and I could stick to. So far, it's been good!!

2.Change Up Current Style- I still want to make changes to the design of this blog and that is in the works. I have added a new fashion series to my blog which I'm really excited about. It gives me an excuse to shop more lol!! 

3.Attend A Blogging Event- I am still working very hard on this one and I have seen some I would love to attend but scheduling conflicts. I know I will get to one very soon!!

4.Proof Read Better- I have been kinda slacking on this but I am still reading over my post out loud before hitting the publish button. 

5. Get Calendar And Blogging Book- I am still using each one everyday and it helps so much since I have so much going on. It will be time for a new calendar soon and I'm on the hunt for a nice one. Any suggestions??

6. Learn More About Blogging- I have retained so much information over the past two months. I have been trying to study the info and use it. I'm really trying to retain readers and gain new ones. Trying to keep people coming back and returning and just trying to make things on Naturalle Drea a better experience.

Personal Goals

1. Wear Makeup More Often- I have been really having fun with creating new looks everyday. I even found my new signature everyday look. It is just not fun when it is time to clean all my brushes lol!!

2. Wear Skirts And Dresses More Often- I also have been enjoying putting outfits together and being very girly. I wear heels just about everyday I'm at work and just loving my new look.

3. Use BBW Stash More- I have been reaching for stuff more often. I had to throw away some older scents that didn't smell like the scent anymore. I also have been reaching for perfumes more but I've been balancing between both.

4. Not Stress So Much- I can't even think about the last time I've been really stressed about stuff. I do get overwhelmed at times but I've calmed down a lot.

5. Be More Prepared And Organized- Since I have started my new full time position, I had no choice but to be more organized. I have to get up even earlier now to get myself ready before waking up my son and getting him ready. I already have lunches packed and clothes laid out the night before. It's been a little struggle waking up so early but it is all worth it.

6. Finding Myself And Figuring Out What I Want To Do- Things in my life have been pretty good so far. I'm working full time now, loving my job and those that I work with, going back to school to get my masters and a little more financially stable. I know things before were a little shaky and I never lost faith that things would start to look up. I knew things would get better and I'm glad for these first few steps. I'm really working towards what I really want to do and see myself in 5 years.

So that is it for my personal and blogging goals. How are you making out with goals you set for yourself?? Comment below and let me know. Enjoy your weekend and see you Sunday.

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
