Happy New Year! We had a tricky time deciding what we wanted our first post to be for 2018. We wanted it to be fun, but also meaningful as well.
0ur 2018 Resolutions
Every year we like to share our resolutions (check out our 2016 resolutions and 2017 resolutions). It's not only become a tradition at Canvas, but it also keeps us accountable if we don't follow them!
A theme at Canvas in 2018 is FUN! We are so passionate about helping our clients look and feel their best, and sharing style and fashion content with you all on the blog, that it can be easy to put pressure on ourselves. So as we venture into a new year, we are embracing each moment, each post and each task with a joyful mentality.
"Style-wise, in 2018 I am actually pushing myself to add more to my wardrobe. I tend to be very minimalistic and selective with what I add, and I want to enjoy the freedom of a few impulse purchases that are just fun! Personally, I want to practice being more present in each moment and embracing more spontaneous adventure. First up, a yoga retreat later this month!"
Kimberly: "I'm embracing FUN in 2018! As I reflected back on 2017 I realized how heavy I made it. When I get focused on something I can quickly become all business (aka I'm a perfectionist). I want to step back, focus on what is working and let things go instead of trying to make everything work. This translates to my wardrobe too--after a serious purge I have all my basics set but could use some unplanned pieces that reflect more of my personality."
What Do You Want From Canvas in 2018?
We are going to be honest, we faced some serious burnout at the end of 2017. As we mentioned previously, we took the week between Christmas and New Year's off from social media and worked to recharge, refocus and spend time with our loved ones. We love blogging and creating new content for you all, but some days it can feel hard to put on a pretty outfit and smile for the camera.
We also want this to be a fun place for you to come and enjoy new content. So, we want to know what YOU want to read more about on our blog in 2018? Do you want more style recommendations with links to our favorite picks or more personal content with photos of what we are wearing and loving? Let us know and we will make it happen!
Happy new year, and as always, stay stylish!
