New Year, New Goals + 2017 Reflections

2017 will always be one of the most memorable years of my life! Marrying my best friend and getting to spend forever together was what i was most looking forward to in 2017. I promise i will have a wedding recap up possibly on our 1 year anniversary! So be on the look out for that. We gained a new addition to our family this year! I finally have a sweet niece who was born in July! We have slowly been getting our house together, but we still have a ton to do. I think its best to take our time designing and finding pieces we really want rather than spending money on spontaneous pieces. I love these reflection posts so I can look back at the years to come and see how much I’ve grown.

I celebrated 2 years of blogging on Glam Fit Foodie! I really wanted to challenge myself and grow more with my little blog in 2017 & I did. I worked hard, received some amazing opportunities and met some inspiring bloggers. I am going to have the same ambition and goals for the new year and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the future. Everyone seems to love my beauty posts which i love because they are my favorite to create. Its fun to try things and share what genuinly works. I received several opportunities that i turned down because the products just weren’t something that I was comfortable promoting. I just love sharing products and tips with you all and I would never share something I didn’t love or use.

One topic I want to talk more about on my blog this year is home decor. We have a lot of progression planned with our home this year, so there will be tips and ideas for home decor coming this year. I love designing and finding pieces for less that look more expensive. Seeing everything I envision come to life makes me so happy. I’m glad Mike has an opinion on things and helps me decide which pieces to buy.

Last year I made it a point to take care of my health and i am so glad I did. I have suffered from migraines for years and if you have them you know my pain! After countless migraine medications I decided to see a chiropractor and boy am I glad I did! After xrays, this is what he found: My neck is curved the opposite direction, 2 of my vertebrates have arthritis, my atlas bone was pushed to the right side (where I experience my migraines) and my lower back is curved with a starting formation of scoliosis! The Dr said no wonder I was in so much pain all the time and didn’t know how I functioned daily. I’ve been seeing him for the past 2 months, 2 days a week. I feel better than I’ve felt in years! I’ve had a migraines maybe 2 times since I’ve been going and I would get them 4-5 times a week! I encourage everyone to take care of themselves and don’t put things off!

Staying on the healthy track, I want to try to lose weight and gain muscle mass to the point where I am comfortable. I want to encourage myself to exercise at least 3x a week. I may try a juice cleanse for a week or something to reset my body. I have a big sweet tooth and want to limit the amount of sweets I eat in a week.

In 2018, I am most looking forward to nourishing my mind and soul with positivity and encouragement. I want to continue to work hard and be kind each and every day. I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me. I’m ready for ya!

Thank you to all of you for following and supporting Glam Fit Foodie. I can’t wait to create new content for you all in 2018! I wish you all a Happy new year of love and wishes beyond your wildest dreams!

Spring Favorites I’ve Been Loving 

The month of February is full of L♡VE in the air and pretty colors. I wanted to share a few of my favorite accessories that I’ve been obsessed with that could also work as little Valentines gifts. 

Lace up Ballet Flats | How cute are these flats?! The bright cobalt blue is so perfect to transition into Spring. These little beauties were one of my Anniversary gifts a year ago and I have been OBSESSED ever since! I am so happy they are being transitioned into this years spring style! 
Steve Madden Sunnies| I found these Steve Madden rose gold beauties and just had to have them! I’m obsessed with rose gold (hence my engagement ring) and these just had to be added to my collection! These are also perfect for spring! 

Jimmy Choo Flash| If you’ve never tried Jimmy Choo perfume, you don’t know what you’re missing! I have been loving this scent for the past year. It is my go to scent. I found a 3.4 oz at Sam’s Club for around $43 and a 2 oz for around $20 at Marshalls. I’ve linked one right in between! 
Tarte Lippie | This Tarte matte lippie is around $20 dollars. I just love the nude color for day looks and date night!

I hope you all enjoyed this post and it helped spark some ideas! I’ll be sharing another Valentines post with suggestions for you or your Gal-entines! 💕

Hello 2017 | New Year, New Goals


Smiling & laughing my way into 2017! New year means new goals to set and obtain as well as new exciting adventures to look forward to. Every year I never really set a resolution for the year, but goals that I can obtain.

 2016 was my year! I wanted to pass all of my classes (easy with lots of hard work), graduate with my bachelors( did it!) and get a career in my field (have it!). Along with all of those amazing things happening, we bought our first house and still planned for our wedding. Only 45 days! 💍

For 2017, I am most looking forward to marrying the man of dreams. Aside from that, I have a few goals that I would like to work towards. 

Getting healthier 

I eat pretty healthy now and have been working on getting better at it. Hopefully my health issues get better too so I can be the best me. 

Be more adventurous 

Since Mike and I have been so busy with school the past couple of years we never really had time to do adventurous things together. It was always school, work and study. We’re going to make a point to create new memories beyond our wedding! 

Be more present

I am a big planner and I’m always planning well ahead. It can be both a blessing and a curse. I am always prepared for things, but sometimes I forget to live in the present moment. Like last year with school I was so focused on obtaining my goals, that everything happened so fast and I couldn’t grasp it all at once. I was overwhelmed and sick. Being present is definitely something I want to accomplish this year. 

Worry Less

I’ve always been told that I’m too nice and I always grew up thinking it was a bad thing. Now that I’m older, I’m glad I’m a sweet person because you don’t find many people these days who are. I want to learn to worry less about what others think about me and just live my dreams. I’ve always been so nervous about writing this blog and I’ve hid it for so long from people I know in fear of what others would say. I’ve slowly been featuring it more and I’m so glad that I did! 

2017 I’m ready for ya! What are some of your goals and resolutions? I’d love to hear them!

Look Book | Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration 

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday! It’s the holiday that starts the season and gives me the warm feeling that quality family time is near. This year we are hosting Thanksgiving dinner in our new home! We are both a little anxious and hopeful that everything will turn out right! I love to cook and know my side dishes will come out yummy, but we’re a little worried about the turkey! (We’ve never cooked a 22 lb 🦃 ) My favorite hint to eat on Thanksgiving is my sweet potato casserole and my Momma’s mashed potatoes! She seriously makes the best, nothing will ever compare! 

Aside from the delicious foods, looking your best is a must. I posted a cozy outfit for those with cooler weather and a loose fitting dress that is perfect for hiding that food baby!
