    I really liked this post, I think its much more important to have Goals than Resolutions!

  • Linda

    I would love to see you in a silver hair! You would seriously rock!

    • Thanks dear! Def a possibility, I’ve been talking to the hair dresser!!!!

  • Kat

    These are some awesome goals. I’m trying to cut back on the soda as well, but man do I like it during that midday lull between lunch and clocking out. ;P

    • Its sooo hard right!!!! Thank you xoxo

  • Siti Fatimah

    I hope to exercise more regularly..

    • Oh I forgot that one too lol you and me both! Good luck my dear!

  • Vanessa Buttino

    I actually prefer going to the cinema alone. It’s very relaxing and I don’t have to worry about anyone ruining the movie for me (as pals often do with their incessant talking and texting). I don’t have to share my popcorn with anyone and I can stay as long as I’d like to without having to rush out because someone else wants to go shopping or something.

    My goals for 2015 are to spend less money (this may be a problem) and to limit my time spent online. I’ve already cut back on my blogging and I honestly can’t see myself going back.

    • Hanaa we are so alike, I went to see the Hobbit last weekend and had a blast! I didn’t have to wait on anyone to get all dolled up, I wore PJ’s and looked like a straight up hobo and loved it! Spending less money is always a problem lol! I hope you get your blogging mojo back though : ) xoxo

      • Vanessa Buttino

        Okay, the urge to go see a movie in my pajamas is all too real for me right now! I’ve never done that before, but if you say it’s cool, it MUST be šŸ˜‰

  • Nik

    I’m visiting New York in November! It would be great to see some posts, on your favourite places in NYC.

    Also wanted to say that I mentioned you in my most recent post! Feel free to check it out here.

    • You’re such a sweetheart! I’m so happy to see a male over in my neck of the woods lol. I am truly flattered and honored to be featured on your site, I really love it!!! I’m heading to NYC early May so I’ll have a master list and recommendations ready for you by then!!! xoxo

  • Bonita Samuels

    really love this! never thought about what I want to do this year.. but ima start now tho!! šŸ™‚

    • Good for you!!!! Do it!!

  • Amber Hunter

    I cannot recommend seeing wicked on broadway enough! I live in New York now for school and was lucky enough to get discounted tickets for students. Even though we were the second row from the last it was still absolutely wonderful. I hope you accomplish many of your hopes this year (that was kind of a weird sounding sentence haha) and I look forward to continuing to read your blog šŸ™‚

    I think silver hair will suit you so much, obsessed with some silver hair I saw last year, unfortunately my problem isn’t Pepsi but, Coke, it’s soo addictive!

    • Thank you dear! That darn soda I tell you!!!!!

  • Rebecca R

    I am also hoping to learn to make macarons this year, among many other things!

    • Well I hope you learn my dear and good luck!!!

  • Brittany Messner

    I love this list girl! This year I hope for many things, but mainly I want it to be a year of trying new things and takes risks. I’ve already tried fois gras for the first time and plan on going to an event where I know absolutely zero people solo. I’m on a roll! Happy New Year Tamira šŸ™‚ xx

    • Thanks babe! Stay on that roll because you’re doing great! Such a beaut might I add! xoxo

  • Sophie ā™„

    Love this list hun. Atop mine at the moment is to spend less on beauty and make use of what I have. Do you have good-reads?? I’d love to see what you end up reading. x

    • Thanks my dear! I’m planning on going to the bookstore next week so I’ll let you know what I come back with, super excited to share!

  • TheProcrastinator

    OMG silver hair would actually make you a mermaid/goddess hybrid. DO ITTTTTT. PS I’ve seen wicked a coupe times — absolutely an incredible experience.

    • Thanks babe! I’ve been talking to the hair dresser to get it started! The BF is taking me to see Wicked in March and I can’t wait!

  • Tirurit

    Wicked sounds like lots of fun!!

    • I can’t wait to see it!

  • R I A

    Come to London! šŸ™‚ These are all really solid goals Tammie, I’m sure you’ll achieve them all. I’m with you on the reading front, I recently read Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah and it definitely resurrected my inner book worm. x

    • Def on my Bucket list of places to visit and in the near future! Book worms all the way!!! xoxo

  • Tara

    What a fun list! Love the idea of planting a peony bush, what a great take on resolutuons šŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much xoxo!

  • Grace Denny

    Travelling is definitely number one on my list this year. I’ve managed to set myself up well so far with Paris and New York! Very excited! Improving my photography is definitely up there too! Also… Filmstar Bronze & Glow – get your hands on that thang, by far my favourite highlight and contour duo evaarr!

    XO, G from grace’d

    • Yay lucky you!Thank you so much dear! I will own that palette very soon too!!!

  • rae

    All of these photos are just absolutely beautiful and this is a great list. I like this idea almost better than a full on resolutions list.

    rae of love from berlin

    • Thank you so much! xoxo

  • Drea |

    Cutting back on Pepsi and Dr. Pepper is something I hope to continue to do this year. It’s so hard, though! PS. How can you improve your photography? It’s already damn good! šŸ˜‰

    • Thanks love you’re too kind! That darn Pepsi needs to be torn from my grasps!!!!

      • Drea |

        Mine too. I broke down and had one this week. *taps hand*

  • Pale Lily

    I love this! I’m so inspired by it. By the way, I don’t know if you’ve ever done it, but although watching movies alone at the theaters can be a bit daunting when you think about it, I actually quite enjoy it. It’s a great way to spend time with yourself! šŸ˜‰

    Sofia |

    • I took the plunge and watched the Hobbit the other day solo and really enjoyed myself!

  • Carla @ Blush Parade

    I also want to go alone to the cinema at least once. I mean… once I think about it, you have little interaction with your company during the movie anyway, so why not going alone? Also trying to read a bit more over here!

    Your last resolution is my fav. I’m sure that you already are. šŸ™‚

    • I went last weekend and saw the hobbit, best 3 hours alone I spent in a very long time so I say go for it! Thank you for being so kind as well xoxo
