The first day of the last month of the year.

This December I'm taking a blogging break. Why? Simply put, I need to take this time for me and my loved ones so I can be prepared to take on 2017. If you feel like you need to take a break from routine and focus on new intentions, you should too! I's tired, boss. I put out 2 blog posts almost every week! *pats self on back* Think of this as a little hibernation period. While I'm gone you can download Homemade Holiday - my 15-recipe digital cookbook, read my note to the class of 2016 if you're graduating in December, or read my guide on salary negotiation. My blog is chock-full of resources, recipes, and goodies for my friends. Enjoy them! 

These are some of the things I'm doing to get a head start on the coming year. It's simple, but it's what works for me. No, this list doesn't include buying a NYE dress, but it does include some things to get you right on track for your best year yet. Click through the pictures below.


6 Things you can do to finish the year strong and kick ass in the new one:

  1. Get a kickstart on healthy habits - Have you tried the MyFitnessPal app?

  2. Make a vision board - Here's a great resource I used to help make mine!

  3. Get your money right - Try automated savings with Digit! I saved $300 in less than 2 months without even realizing it.

  4. De-clutter your home - Out with the old and in with the new! I'm still loyal to eBay and Craigslist.

  5. ReadYou Are A Badass,  Creative Confidence, Steal Like An Artist, and Big Magic, for starters. *Let me know what you end up reading!*

  6. Work on your #GOALS - Whether they're blogging goals, business goals, beauty goals, or other goals, give some serious thought to what you'd like to do in the coming year and have a really good brainstorming session.


I know you killed it this year and I'm confident you'll do the same next year. You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat all December long. Let me know what you'll be working on this month, bye bye for now! - Tati
