The 52 Project: March in Review


How was your weekend/Easter? More on mine, below. So for every week in 2013, I'm doing a different resolution. I used to do this monthly, but decided to mix it up this year. I share my resolutions on Instagram with a monthly roundup here! Let's get into this month's results! March was the Month of the Sickness. I completed one resolution. ONE! Here's to hoping next month is better.

  • Eat Alone
    • Result: I was sick, so I didn't do it. 
    • Would I Do It Again? Yes!
  • Sick in Bed, forgot about resolutions...didn't make any...does "getting well" count? ;)
  • Read a Book/Eat Alone
    • Result 1: Didn't read the book, which is disappointing, as I'm a fast reader. I've got to work on carving out a life for myself, instead of being so obsessed with blogging. 
    • Result 2: Finally! I did it! It was weird, and I was constantly checking my phone, but it got easier as the dinner went on.
    • Would I Do It Again? Absolutely!
  • Get Better at Time Management
    • Result: Horrible at this, especially when it comes to blogging. I've got to be more efficient at this. I failed miserably!
    • Would I Do It Again? It is on my repeat list
Past Resolutions and If I'm Still Doing Them:
  • Make Bed Daily
    • yes!
  • Write Down Everything You Eat
    • no
  • Attend a Blog Event
    • yes!
  • Go to Bed an Hour Earlier
    • only when I was sick
  • Drink only water
    • no
  • Spend no money
    • no
  • Walk with my chin parallel to the ground
    • yes!
  • Exercise 5 days a week
    • no

March in Review (clockwise l-r): 
  • Charlie, the cutest pup ever
  • Coconut Grove candle from Target, because I've got beach-fever
  • Mint nails, mint watch for spring
  • Iwi Fresh Spa blogger event
  • I love stripes, headed to another event
  • I have Lemsip sent over from the UK because I swear it works when I'm sick!
  • Quick fishtail braid before brunch
  • Spring is finally here!
  • Me, before I got sick! :/


Cutest bunny ever

Yesterday was Easter, and it was Charlie's third birthday. He doesn't like natural dog treats, so he didn't have a cake (although I would have). For Easter, I wore this dress I was sent from Eshakti. You've heard of them, right? They're a website of women's fashions that you can customize and that are affordable. This dress is similar. I added wider straps and added pockets, because who doesn't love pockets? Seriously though, I recommend them!

Thanks, Eshakti

Windy Easter, but look at our hair!

  1. Love the 'walk with chin level to the ground' one, it's the simple things that make a difference! I'm sure you'll get some more crossed off next month :)

  9. The dress is lovely on you. The "spend no money" bit would be incredibly hard, there's always something that tends to come up. Enjoy the week dear! /Madison

  13. You've been doing so well with your resolutions, so I'm sure that when you're feeling better, they'll keep going much better/more productive.
    Your puppy is too precious - happy belated birthday to him! You look wonderful :) xo

  14. Hope you are feeling better! BTW, I have a serious issue with eating alone. No idea why but I do. And going to movies alone which is so dumb. I do love shopping alone, though. Actually I prefer it! :)

  32. It's disappointing at times when life (or being sick) gets in the way of our goals..despite all of you're consistent at it and keen to nail them all. I like that--to drink only water. I started giving up soda completely recently. Have a great week, Elle.
