The 52 Project: June

Happy 4th of July, America! I have the day off, but it's rainy, so I'm not sure what plans will be. Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram. But let's talk about today's post. For every week in 2013, I'm doing a different resolution. I call it The 52 Project, and I'm halfway finished! I cannot believe how fast this year has been. Let's check out my goals for June:

Focus on the Positive
  • I tend to focus on my flaws or what needs to be improved in terms of my life, self, blog, etc. Instead, I worked on focusing on what I like about myself, my life, and the blog achievements I've made so far. I did okay on this, and was surprised I did as well as I did.
Post Everywhere with No Makeup
  • Oh, I love an Instagram filter. If only I looked that way in real life, right? I decided to post a pic on Twitter and Instagram of me with zero makeup! Gross, but I did it! Would you?
  • We all know I'm shy and awkward, but for some reason this year I'm working on it. I made it a point to talk to someone new everyday and looking them in the eye (a past resolution).

Have No Choice but to Enjoy Everyday
  • During the week of the previous resolution, I told the cashier to have a nice day, and he told me he had no choice not to. I thought that was amazing! What a positive way to approach life! And I've been doing that ever since.
For July, I'm focusing on a weekly goal that I failed in past months.

June in Review:

Yes, I have three pics of myself here, but I see it as I've come a long way with feeling comfortable taking pics of myself and being in front of the camera. Videos have helped!
Charlie, just because :)
The Pool--My home away from home
Mountains + Covered Bridge--A fun weekend in Helen, GA
The Bling Ring--I went to a screening. I liked it!
Rocket Popsicle Nails--A little something summery and patriotic


  1. Happy 4th, Elle:) Another great set of goals.

    PS I wouldn't mind posting a pic of myself with no makeup, but it would literally mean scaring people off...for realz!

  2. I love this goal project of yours - I keep meaning to start my own!

  8. Happy 4th! I don't think I could ever post a picture of myself without makeup so bravo to you hehe. Love that you've set so many resolutions! I should totally do something similar. Have a great weekend!

  9. Happy 4th, doll! You're gorgeous both with makeup and without. :)


  10. Happy 4th! Enjoy the day :)

    I have enjoyed most of my summer vacation make-up free, and I love it! There's nothing like waking up in the morning and not having to worry about looks.

    And here's something I've personally learned about being shy: shy people can be incredibly loud, witty and word-ready, and the best advantage of it is, that it surprises others when they display these controversial qualities. Be brave, you're not alone out here :)

  11. Hi Elle, Happy 4th! I know you say that you're shy (I am too) but you always some across as so confident and an extrovert, I need to learn that :)
    You look beautiful even without makeup. I really like his approach!

  12. Happy Fourth of July. The no make-up thing is hard, well done! xo

  13. Happy 4th of July hun! Your gorgeous, with a great personality, focus on your goodness, xxx.

  14. These are all such great goals to work on - proud of you! :) And also, your hair is looking FINE, girlfriend!

  15. I really want to watch the Bling Ring! PS, I think you're doing great with your goals. There was a time when I could not find ANY pictures of yourself on your blog.
