Root Chips

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

I don’t believe in new year’s resolutions, but I have made about 83 so far.

In no particular order, I’d like to stop picking my split ends, master baking, worry less, buy more candles, become a minimalist, read 40 books, exfoliate more and reduce my social media footprint just to name a few.

Twelve days in and I’m 0/83.

These resolutions really boil down to a common theme: becoming a healthier, more well-rounded Rachel. If successful, I’ll have healthier hair and skin, less clutter, a sound mind and a house that smells like Ina Garten’s on lemon tart day. Though self-absorbed, I have high hopes for myself this year!

Next year I’ll resolve to do something for the greater good, I promise.

    I love how you want to buy more candles and become a minimalist in the same sentence! Haha, but seriously, you are totally adulting with the candle thing. I’m theoretically an adult but I’m so messy and cluttered that candles just scare the hell out of me. I’m sure to burn everything down XD
