Welcome 2019, The Year I Set Free the #GirlBoss in Me

HAPPY NEW YEAR! It's crazy how 2018 flew by and how truly excited I am for the new year. I have been needing a fresh start more than ever. My main goal or the new year is to grow my blog and start working with some brands, try to make some sort of income and take this seriously as a job, which I am aware is going to be very hard, but I am a true believer that hard work pays off and that I am no less than the other group of people who have made it before me, if I work as hard as they do I can be as good or even better than them because we can create our lucky stars we don't need to be born with one.

Today I decided to share with you my 2019 Resolutions, I am going to work hard towards each and every one of them and create the year I deserve.

Reduce the usage of plastic by replacing a few of the items I own: This is maybe one of the most important resolutions that I think should be part of everyone's lists. We are facing an environmental crisis and a lot of people simply seem to ignore that. If all of us stopped buying plastic bags, water bottles and straws (simple things I have replaced in 2018) a huge difference would be made.

Make at least 5 meals per week vegetarian: To go with the plastic resolution I think that is as important to reduce the consumption of meat (especially beef). When I am in Lisbon I do at least 50% of my weekly meals vegetarian and in 2019 I want to make sure at least 5 of my dinners/lunches are vegetarian, again, keep in mind, we only have one planet and we truly need to take care of it, if we take care of our houses in order to keep in good livable conditions why do we mistreat our only planet? 

Read 24 books: When I was younger I read all the time and I lost the habit to do it, this is a habit I want to bring back in 2019, reading 24 books doesn't sound like a lot and I am sure it's going to help me reset both my mind and soul in the new year.

Keep going to the cinema as much as I did in 2018: This is not a resolution but more of a goal, I went to the cinema A LOT in 2018, and this is a habit I really want to keep, in an era of Netflix and illegal downloads it feels so right to support an industry that I love so much, I also want to watch more Portuguese Films, I feel like they have improved a lot in the past couple of years and there are a lot of Portuguese FIlms coming out in 2019 that I am truly excited about.

 Be more inventive with makeup: 2018 was the year in which I fell out of love with makeup and then back in love with it, full force,  in the new year I want to explore with more colors and looks. 

 Find more occasions to wear stilettos: As a birthday present to myself I got a pair of stilettos and I truly love them, but I find little to no occasions to wear them, in 2019 I am determined to find a way to wear stilettos more often once they make me feel really good about myself. 

 Keep buying less and better, and curating my closet to consist only of pieces that I love: Getting rid of stuff in my wardrobe has been a constant in 2018, so for 2019 I hope to buy only things that I truly love, that are good quality and that I am going to wear over and over and over again, I want to build some sort of capsule wardrobe and this feels like the right year to do it. 

 Travel more: I do have a number of trips I want to make but I don't want to share it. I plan however to travel more this year than ever before. I want to travel both in Portugal and outside and I couldn't be more excited about it. Also, if possible I really want to lose my fear of traveling alone and just do it. 

Start a Youtube Channel: I've wanted to do this for years but I always feel like I am not good enough, the year starts today and I already made the decision that I am good enough and that I am going to start a YouTube Channel in 2018 because creating content is something that I am truly passionate about. 

 Consistency is the kye: In 2019 I promise to stop making excuses to stop not trying hard enough and more than anything else to be consistent with the content I am creating. This will mean work really hard and try to be at least one week ahead of the game, something I've never done before but that I am ready to do in 2019.

Pass all of my university classes with good grades: This being my last year of university and possibly my last year as a student, it's obvious that I want to finish every class I am attending with some good grades, not that that will matter much in the future, but it will show me that I can do stuff for myself and it will be self-rewarding. 

 Keep going to the gym and achieve and healthier lifestyle, both physical and mentally: If you read my mental health-related post you will know that the gym is a place that has made me super anxious in the past and that it was hard for me to deal with, but I made the decision in 2018 that in 2019 I was going to fight this harder than ever. Which means working my ass of to go to the gym at least 4 times a week (2 of them being the pilates classes I normally go to). 

I truly hope that you are as motivated as I am for the New Year and that you are able to overcome the dullness of 2018 and have a kick-ass 2019! 


  1. This is so motivating, we have so many similar goals! I'd love to work with more brands this year, wear heels more (I'm glad I'm not alone in that goal), travel, go to the cinema and read more too! Good luck with all of these.

    1. Thank you so much! Yes, I felt a bit silly writing that I wanted to wear heels more often but now I feel better knowing that I am not alone! Good luck to you too babe!

  2. In fact, every year, I set goals for myself and I can't do many of them.
    I am sure that I will be able to accomplish the goals I am unable to achieve after reading this blog.
    I hope you will make your wishes above.

  3. That is so kind of you! Thank you so much.
    I truly believe that fundamenting why we want to achieve those goals is an essential part in the process of achieving them.
    If you want to go somewhere you sure know why you want to do it right? The same goes for any goal you have in life!
    The moment you realize that it becomes easier to be focus and to work towards them.
    Sending you so much love,
