Happy New Year | 2016 Resolutions

Happy New Year Lovelies! Hope you all had a wonderful NYE and a great time last night whether you were out and about or even taking it easy at home. Wanted write a surprise post to share my NYE festivities and 2016 resolutions.

Ended 2015 with a glass of champagne while watching NYE with Ryan Seacrest! Wouldn’t have had it any other way. 🙂

2015 had been an awesome year that was full of great memories, challenges, as well as opportunities.

For 2016, I look forward to conquering new challenges by taking my career another step forward, getting back in to shape, eating healthier, saving money, making more great memories with those I love, and hitting new milestones. It’s gonna be a great year, I just feel it!

What are your guys’ resolutions? Praying for a safe, healthy, and successful 2016 for everyone. May we overcome every bump in the road and may we grow even stronger from every challenge.

❤ Ren
