A Quickie Post + Inspiration

Hello loves,
I'll be upfront with y'all right off the bat: I'm not here this evening to bring you an eloquently written post or some stunning pictures. This is simply a little update telling you about my plans and what you'll be seeing soon on this blog. I haven't been blogging lately as you all already know and the simple reason why is because I had absolutely no idea what to write about! It happens to the best of us, sometimes we simply feel drained of blogging, uninspired, lacking motivation. I'm not sure what it was exactly, but something just clicked in me today and suddenly I was overflowing with ideas and was so excited to sit down and write up a post this evening.
What you'll be seeing will (hopefully) be right in line with my New Years resolutions. Upcoming posts will be focusing a lot on healthy eating and working out. I realized that this blog is the perfect place to be held accountable, share about what I do, and hopefully inspire a few of you along the way. You know my passion for beauty as well, so perhaps you'll see some tutorials or product reviews as well. In my resolutions list I challenged myself to BE FEARLESS~BE FRIENDLY~and BE ADVENTUROUS~ and I plan to see those promises through. I'm not sure what exactly that means when it comes to blogging, but I will try my best to make it happen.

Quotes of the week~

When I'm feeling like giving up in a workout, I secretly think this in my head. :)
In case you can't read the small print this says: I really hate working out... So to get through it, I pretend I'm training for the Hunger Games. It makes me push that much harder.

This is not so much a quote as it is a method. The next time you feel like giving up mid-workout, try this! It is most effective if you're in a gym or in a group, anywhere where other people are around.

I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.
I've picked this as my quote of the week.

And lastly: because we all need a little laughter to get us through those tough days:

but really


Owner said meow!

Have a lovely week dear followers and expect some posts coming soon!

xoxo, em
