18 for 2018

Today I complied a list of 18 things that I would like to do/try/achieve in 2018.The idea came from the one and only podcast that I regularly listen to called “Happier”.

The last day of my 2017 was spent much like the first; surrounded by friends, in the sun and by the water πŸ™‚ tHE BEACH MAKES ME HAPPIER!

I have found that for me, personally, New Years Resolutions don’t actually help me resolve very much at all. Instead, I am left with a big list of burdens that become hassles rather than happiness hacks. I don’t want to reach the end of the year and feel as though I have let myself down. Last year, I didn’t make any resolutions; I just vowed that I wanted some positive changes to happen in my life- and they did!Β  So here is my list of 18 for 2018- things that I’d like to do!

18 for 2018

  • Make Pierogi
  • Declutter something
  • Travel to a new place
  • Teach Remy more tricks/ games- keep riding the bike together!
  • Encourage Remy to like swimming/the beach
  • Do a Yoga class
  • Read more (join an online book club?)
  • Save a little more $$ every pay
  • Make gnocchi from scratch (slowly, and enjoy it! Probably with wine)
  • Write one personal blog post per month
  • Put more effort into making my Instagram/Blog more symbiotic
  • Do 5x Chin ups unassisted (no bands!)
  • Small acts of self care (uber eats, facials, sleeping in, skipping an exercise class, eating more vegetables)
  • Use my multitude of beautiful, foreign cook books
  • Host a cocktail party in our apartment
  • Take more meaningful photos
  • Make salted caramel macarons
  • Download more podcasts, more regularly!


Warsaw- the first and only time I have eaten authentic Pierogi!

The first time I tried Polish Pierogi was in Warsaw. I would love to be able to make my own one day!

This has been my 18 for 2018. I hope this inspires you to make your own list of little achievable To Do’s that will make you feel happier, more accomplished and generally more positive!

Happy New Year,
