My Blogging Goals For 2018

Happy New Year guys! Its 2018 YAY! I feel as if 2017 flew by so quickly. One minute I'm coaching my students through a debate in February next I'm getting over the devastation of two major hurricanes in October. Saying it was a rollercoaster year would be putting it mildly. 2017 was also my year to focus on my career, goals and plans for my future. I wasn't blogging as much some months and other months I was not blogging at all.

I love Januarys. The month comes with so much hope, goals and expectation for the new year. I was in the process of writing down my life goals for 2018 when it occurred to me that I haven't written down my blogging goals. I have so many things I wish to accomplish this year and having those goals written down some place not only gives me a virtual checklist, but it will hold me accountable. So today I want to talk about my blogging goals for 2018. I've never actually written down my blogging goa!s before and since 2018 is the year of major changes in my life I feel as if these goals are as important as ever.

Now that I have so much more time to blog I feel as if I can accomplished most if not all of my goals for this year. There are a lot of insecurities that comes with blogging and putting myself out there that I have to overcome but hey, new year new me right?

Here are my blogging goals for 2018:

~Find my blogging voice: I know this is probably clich├ęd but I feel as if I have so many voices when I am blogging. I realized that I am trying to imitate the voices of other bloggers and not use my own. I am working very hard on this in 2018.

~Share my life more: Guys, I live in Turks and Caicos. Why didn't I show you MORE of my life here? I am so sorry about that but I promise to take you along with me this year.

~Work on my blog. Like, really WORK on it: for two years I have been planning the move from Blogger to WordPress. Its SO daunting and I'm scared to actually do it. I never knew so much work actually go into the move. I also want to give my blog an updated look, something that reflects me as a person and the blogger. I am nervous about the ultimate change but this year is my 'insecurities aside' year so keep a look out for a new an improved UponMyCurves!

~Take better pictures: I suck at picture taking. You wouldn't even know that a few years before I began blogging I was a real photography enthusiast. Fast forward to 2014 and UponMyCurves is suffering because I forgot how to use a simple editing software. I am here blogging away and hoping my pictures look nice. Nope, no more of that! 2018 demands I take better pictures for my blog.

~Gain more readers, followers, subscribers etc.: Its been far too long for me to not be at the level I should be with my blog. I am currently working on this and hopefully by year end I will be.

~Host a Linky party: this is something I've always wanted to do on my blog. I have joined a few and they were fun but I want to host one of my own. Fingers crossed!

And that's it guys! My blogging goals for 2018 all written down. I am holding myself accountable here. I want the results so I have to put in the time and hard work. I didn't want to put 'blog more' or 'blog consistently' as one of my goals. Simply put, life happens. And while we all might have our posts schedule to the minute things just get in the way.

What are your 2018 goals?

How To Slay The End of 2017 Fashionably

Hi squad! Trisha here again. Happy New year! I've been away for way too long this time but now I'm back! Yayyy! So many things happened during the time I was away. Many hours of self discovery. If there was anything I learn from 2017 is that no matter how far down I may be, I can get right back up again. And slay every look every time.

Its almost 2018 and I'm excited (and dreading) to see what this new year will hold. Then I noticed how close we were to the anticipated New years party and realized I had nothing to wear. But thankfully Forever21 came through. And I'm happy they did 'cos it was absolutely last minute as most of you know international delivery has a strict cut off time for orders. I wanted to wear something sparkly and sexy so I got this bodysuit from Forever21. Guys let me just type how I feel about this bodysuit out for you..hold on..AAAHHHH!!!! I FREAKING LOVE IT! Slay girl!!. The sequins are large and colorful and catches the light every time I turn..ooooooooh look at it! Only downside is I wish it was in larger sizes especially for my bustier girls. I feel so sexy in this. Listen, Sunday is almost here, go crashing down your nearest Forever21 and demand this bodysuit. Thank me later.
My blazer is from Rainbows and is in the prettiest shade of purple ever! Its a 3X and fits so nicely. The material is very soft and stretchy. It adds a nice look to the overall outfit.

My pants are from my fave UK brand New Look. I love this store so much and order from them a lot. They are the only store that ships here easily from the UK. I've been mostly wearing their jegging because as much as I love New Look their jeans fit horribly on me. Plus I love these jegging! They fit so nicely and comes up so high on me. I probably own every jegging from New Look. Its in a size UK24 length 28. Shoes are from Ashley Stewart and in a size 10 WF. I love these because they are so comfortable and cute perfect for a new year night out. No matter your style girl you can head into 2018 looking amazing!

I hope you all enjoy your holiday and I look forward to hearing from all of you in 2018

My Fave New Look Outfitt (So Far)

Me rocking my favorite brand once again! A few days ago I attended an event called Lipstick and Things. It was geared towards women that are small business owners and gives then a chance to more or less market or showcase their products. What I found interesting was I've never heard of most of the business that were there and seeing them getting to interact with them and their products was a great experience.

I choose to go with something out of my norm for my outfit. I saw this top on (my fave website) New Look and was immediately drawn to it. The dots, the cold shoulder tie sleeves and the fact that it was a button down was so cool to me. I got it in a size 22 but I feel like I could have sized up as the top has no stretch at all and was a little tight around the chest area. I loved it though and got many compliments on it. I paired it with my now favorite pair of jeggings and sandals also from New Look. Let me tell you these pants are the bomb. Actually, because of how most pants are designed on New Look jeggings are the only bottoms that fits well. Regular jeans will kinda fit the waist but never ever these legs of mine. Not sure what the deal is with that but New Look needs to get that fixed!

Any way on a nicer note I love my outfit and its one of my faves from New Look in a while. It takes me out of the bubble I've begun to place my self in since I got home. I like the way it made me feel and my bum looks great in these pants.
