2016 in Review and 2017 Resolutions~

Hi everyone!
Happy New Year~
I'm writing this post a bit later than I intended- I just got lazy haha.
Today I thought I'd review the resolutions from last year, write about if I met them or not, and set some new ones for this upcoming year~
Let's start!

2016's Resolutions

No. 1: Go Cruelty Free
There were several parts to this resolution- I wanted to buy from companies that were cruelty free, eat less meat, and I wanted to stop supporting companies that used sweatshop labor. I'd say I was quite successful with this, for the most part! I honestly haven't purchased that much makeup/skincare this year, and I've been shopping a lot at LUSH- they pride themselves in being cruelty free so I think they're a great company to support (and they have fantastic skin care). I don't eat meat frequently- I'm by no means a vegetarian, but in general I do prefer my meals to not have meat unless it's something quite special, if that makes sense. 
As for shopping, this year the vast majority of clothing I purchased was second hand! Whether it was from a thrift store, vintage store, or through apps like depop, a lot of things I've bought have been previously owned. I think buying second hand is a great way to get unique items, and you end up spending less as well~ I've also been selling a lot of my clothes as well, so if you're interested, here's the link to my depop~
Overall I think I did really well with this resolution! Of course there's always room for improvement, but I'm quite satisfied with the progress I've made~

No. 2: Cosplay!
Lol this one was a complete failure- I realized cosplay just isn't something I'm dedicated to- and that's okay~

No. 3: Lose Weight
Another resolution which was quite a success~ I've lost about 30 lbs, so I'm quite content~ Not much to say about this ;u;

No. 4: Work More on my YouTube
Throughout the year I really neglected my YouTube, but recently I've been posting more often so I guess it's okay? 

2017's Resolutions

Honestly, there really isn't anything specific I want for this upcoming year ;u; I just want to keep going on the same track I've been going on with my previous resolutions. More weight loss and more work on my YouTube~

Thank you for reading! 
I hope you have a happy 2017~
What are your resolutions for this year?

  1. Congrats on completing most of your goals! I've also not made much of an effort with cosplay as I hoped, but as you said, that's okay haha!
    I look forward to seeing more of your youtube videos! <3
