5 Things Everyone Should Aim For This Year

Late to hop on the resolutions bandwagon? Or maybe your resolution plan isn’t panning out as smoothly as you thought it would?

It’s OKAY! It’s totally okay if resolutions aren’t your thing. You have your whole life to better your mind and soul, so not keeping up with resolutions is no biggie.

So don’t stress, be motivated and ambitious. Aim for these things if you’re still wanting to be inspired this year.

1. Find the time to spend with friends
And we mean true, true friends. Not the low-key bitchy ones you stuck around with in High School. Embrace your genuine pals and go for that brunch date that you’ve always been talking about.

2. Go on an adventure
This is a no-brainer. Whether you want to travel with some company or by yourself – go out and broaden your horizons!

3. Think positively about yourself
Everyday look in the mirror and tell yourself a positive affirmation. Hopefully in no time, your daily “You’re a stunner” and “You’re a warrior” affirmations will secure your confidence in yourself!

4. Save up your pennies
Just so you have it, you know? Try really hard to save some extra dollars and if you do the math – you’ll save enough money to pay for a months’ rent or even buy a ticket to your dream holiday?

5. Give back
In this day and age, we’re so blessed to have what we have. We have to be reminded that a lot of people in our community don’t have it as good. Aim to give back, whether that’s donating some garments that don’t fit you anymore, or volunteering at a shelter.

Feeling inspired this year? Check out these posts.

Beauty trends to look out for in 2016

HAPPY NEW YEAR, LOVE BUGS!

We’re kicking off this beautiful year with some beauty trend predictions to look out for. We’re taking runway style and inspiring and challenging you to incorporate these trends into your own everyday style.

Tweak your style a little and try something new this year. Maybe a new hair style and cut? Or maybe treat yourself to some bold and bright lipsticks?

Here are the beauty trends to look out for in 2016.

Feeling blue
It’s all about applying some blue around your eyes, whether that be an eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, or maybe even a hint of glitter? Make your eyes pop!

Line it up
Winged eyeliner is so 2015. This year, experiment with unique ways that you can line your eyes. Go a little cray with the liner.

Dewy glow
Makeup artists have revealed that the dewy look is in. They want you to achieve the look that appears as if the person has been out all night dancing!

Off duty hair
Slick hair is out and day old effortlessly casual up-do’s are in. Don’t worry about the wind ruining your hair anymore, because that’s sorta the look we’re going for here!

Lip smack
A classic trend that will always be in style. Vibrant lip colors are in, so there’s an excuse to spend some dosh on more lipsticks!

Is beauty your thing? We’ve got what you need.

Things you should say goodbye to before 2016 | PART 2

Good morning to the final beautiful morning of 2015!

As the year comes to an end, we want to help you say goodbye to the things that you’d rather leave behind with the past year. We’re all for letting go, cleansing the soul and moving forward.

You’ve stumbled upon part two; you can read part one here x

Saying “no” to opportunities too often
Say goodbye to overthinking situations and letting yourself talk yourself out of opportunities. Just say “yes” and see what amazing things you could get up to.

Ungratefulness
Say goodbye to taking life for granted. Don’t complain as much and appreciate what you have, the people, the love and the support that you’re surrounded by. Go tell someone how much you love them!

Not ‘having time’ for important things
Say goodbye to not putting what’s important first. Get your priorities right and put more effort in to make time for the important things.

Being afraid
Say goodbye to the fear that you’ve built up. Whether it’s being afraid of letting someone fully in to your life, or if it’s your fear of spiders – work on it and ultimately tell yourself that you actually can conquer anything.

Cleanse your soul for the new year. Click here for Part 1.

Things you should say goodbye to before 2016 | PART 1

You’ve heard of New Year resolutions and for the most part, people never stick to them.

Instead, why not start fresh this week leading up to the new year by saying see ya later to the negativity in your life. Today and Thursday, Gold Vibez will be preparing your mind, body and soul for 2016 by letting go of the unwanted baggage you’ve maybe built up over this year.

IMG-2016

Get ready to greet the new year with an open heart and an open mind by saying goodbye to these things.

Thinking negatively about others
Say goodbye to negative thinking about people. It’s so easy to judge a book by its cover, so focus on steering away from that state of mind. Turn it around and think positively. More empowerment!

Poisonous people
Say goodbye to people who bring a whole lot of negativity into your life. You don’t need an excuse to walk away from relationships like these. It’s okay to be in control of who you let in to your life.

Body “standards”
Say goodbye to the pressure of reaching the “perfect body”. Set your own body goals and make sure you’re doing it for the right reasons. Remember babe, you’re already beautiful.

Thinking the worst in situations
Say goodbye to being a pessimist. It’s not a healthy thing to always expect the worst all the time, so stick to being more of an optimist in the new year.

Watch this space. Part 2 coming soon.
