New Year's Resolutions + 2017 Blogging Goals

Happy New Year! I know I've said this a ton, but I'm so excited to see everything that 2017 has in store for me. I know that it's going to be an amazing year, and I'm going to make it the best one yet.


Drink 8 glasses of water per day // When it comes to drinking water, I'm not the best at remembering to do so. I really want to focus on drinking more water, especially when I'm at school. I have several cute water bottles from Jadelynn Brooke, Swell, Lauren James, and Lilly Pulitzer, and I'm hoping that if I drink water out of those I will be more inclined to stay hydrated.

Unplug from social media // I spend wayyy too much time on my phone and laptop. While a lot of my media usage is due to schoolwork and blogging, I also spend a lot of time checking social media and watching Netflix. This year, I resolve to spend less time on my phone, and fill my free time with creative projects, exercise, and time with friends and family.

Grow in my faith // I really want to grow closer to the Lord this year. I want to spend more time reading the Bible, and I am going to commit to going to church more often. Kindness comes along with this resolution. The church service I saw for Christmas inspired me to be a kinder person, to be a light in the midst of the cruel darkness of this world. I hope to become an all-around better person in this year by following the Lord.


Purchase a domain name // This was the only goal I had last year that I failed to complete. The only thing holding me back is my blog name. I don't want to commit to being Live The Prep Life for the next two years - a part of me wants to change my blog name into something that is broader and less restricted to doing preppy posts. I want to do lifestyle posts too, and showcase clothes that aren't necessarily preppy.

Collaborate with more bloggers // I did some fun collaboration posts last year, and I hope to do even more of that in the next year. I would love to do more giveaways, collaboration blog posts, and get to know more bloggers! If you want to collaborate with me, shoot me an email at!

Improve my outfit posts // I love doing outfit posts, and I want to continue to do them. However, I want to improve the photography of my outfits, as well as the general structure of my outfits. I hope to share looks that are more than just a top and jeans - I want to add accessories and scenery to make my outfit posts more interesting and unique.

Reach 5k Instagram followers // I fully believe I can reach this goal. I have around 3,200 followers right now, so I know if I work hard to take high quality pictures and keep up a constant theme, I can turn this goal into a reality. I would really appreciate it if y'all would follow me @livethepreplife!

I would also really appreciate it if y'all would take five minutes to take this reader survey. I want to make Live The Prep Life the best it can be, and I need your help to do so!
