Another year bites the dust!
2017 was such a dumpster fire of a year that I’m glad it’s over. It was one of those years you just had to bite down and get through, you know? 2018 is gearing up to be better, and I look forward to setting some goals and crushing them next year!
I’m not sure what that will mean for Afternoon Glow, though. Part of me wants to keep this train going, but part of me wants to take a break for a bit. It’s something I have to really think about over the next week or so. I’m pretty sure, as usual, I’m not alone in this. The new year often brings new goals and aspirations, which sometimes means letting go of old ones. I’ll let you know where I fall on this next week. For now, I have a pile of work to do and to figure out what I’m making for dinner (it’s beginning to look a lot like Five Guys burgers…haha).
Anyway, for the last time this year, here are my Friday Favorites!
- According to Well+Good, 2018 is going to be my best year ever! Seattle is the best city for keeping your New Year’s resolutions, and Geminis are expected to have the healthiest year!
- If one of your 2018 goals is to buy more local or sustainable clothing, check out Indie Getup. It’s a website dedicated to promoting brands in your area, or brands who use sustainable materials.
- Have you written and mailed your thank you cards yet? If you want to be more grateful in 2018, pick up a set of 36 adorable thank you cards from Miliko for only $14. I recently bought my 2018 bullet journal from them for only $7, and may pick up some of these cards too!
- If you’re looking to elevate your NYE cocktail this year (and you live somewhere where it’s legal, of course), consider adding some CBD to the mix! Goop has 4 recipes that will keep your holiday party fun and chill!
Alright, enough procrastinating! Off to tackle that pile of work, a pile of laundry, and maybe a nap because it’s so gloomy outside!
Happy New Year!
