Hello 2012!!

Oct 25 (2)
I know it's a little late to write about my plans for 2012, but I've been so so busy that I haven't had another chance. I've really enjoyed 2011, especially since I'm back in Panama with my family and friends.

Here is a look at my 5 favorite outfits of the year 2011 as well as the 5 resolutions I have placed for 2012:

01 Jan 16 - New Year Resolutions (1)
1. Spend more time with my family and friends: Although I already do spend a lot of time with my family, I hope to make even more plans with them during 2012. I also don't give my friends the attention they deserve; so I'm hoping to change that this year.

2. Be healthier: Note the emphasis on "-ier". I'm not naive enough to think that I'm going to eat lettuce and carrots all year and do exercise 6 days a week. All I want for 2012 is to be healthier than I was in 2011. Even if it's just drinking water instead of soda, or doing exercise twice a month. If it's healthier than last year, it's progress!

3. Go on more adventures: This year, my boyfriend and I have decided to go on more adventures together. We would like to visit more local beauties such as Bocas del Toro and San Blas, two areas of Panama that have gorgeous beaches!

4. Try new things: This year I would like to make an effort into trying new things. Instead of just going to the movies with my boyfriend, I could also try bowling, going to an arcade, walking in a park, or even explore new restaurants. There are so many places in Panama that I haven't explored yet, I would love to try new things often.

5. Improve my blog: I'm determined to improve The Joy of Fashion this year! I plan on posting makeup tutorials, challenges, DIY's, and other new ideas that you all have requested.

And there you have it folks, those are my humble resolutions for this year. I'm sure this year is going to be magnificent, I can't wait!
