Doesn’t it feel like Christmas was yesterday and 2017 starts tomorrow?! I love Christmas but I’m not a huge fan of New Years. I feel as if New Years resolutions are over promised, but under delivered. Last year, I probably made a New Years resolution and completely forgot about it now. So rather than making a long list of things I ought to be and do, I wanted to simplify the resolution into one word: improve. My New Years resolution will be to continuously improve in all aspects of my life.
It may be a little early, but I’m an absolute planner and I love planning early for gifts—thus this gift guide for guys! I have already started asking my friends and family what they have on their wishlists. Christmas is a time when the closest people to me get gifts, but my significant other gets surprise gifts from me throughout the year! I feel like guys are so much harder to find gifts for than women. The one gift that every guy needs in many styles and colors is a watch!

Finally, I turn 24! On October 30th, there were multiple celebrations: my birthday, anniversary, and Diwali! (Yes, I’m a lovely Scorpio.) The day was packed with excitement, lots of food, a ton of hugs and dancing. I turned the big 2-4 and I truly wish I could remain 23 forever. Twenty-three seems like the perfect age. There are so many things to accomplish, but yet I keep getting older! I know 24 isn’t ‘old’, but I have always been the one to think that by a certain age, I should have accomplished most of my goals. The other I get, the more I realize that I couldn’t have been more incorrect!

Is it just me or are Halloween makeup looks the new costume? If you haven’t seen them, you must! Some of these creative looks are incredible. To be honest, I much rather prefer getting creative with my makeup then spending $100+ on a costume that probably won’t be popular the next year.
