With only 2-days left in the year it is time to see if I accomplished the goals I set for 2011. In 2010 I declared that I would do the following

Fashion and Beauty (Click here for 2011 goals post)

  1. Shop my closet:
  2. Create more creative looks
  3. Buy more accessories
  4. Use my makeup
  5. Hair Rules: I want to try different styles.
  6. Nails, Nails, Nails do manicures weekly
  • I am happy to say that I accomplished 5/6! I began utilizing more of the pieces in my wardrobe. I did a lot more mixing and matching and in the end created more versatile and creative looks. I killed two birds with one stone.
  • I did purchase quite a bit of accessories this year. I bought  more statement pieces and included a lot more color
  • I wore a full face of make up at least twice a week for the first half of the year and also September-October. I limited my makeup use during the summer for obvious reasons.
  • I cut my hair!!! I can’t believe I did such a drastic thing. I went from having hair just below my shoulder to this asymmetrical cropped look. It was such a huge change but I loved it.
  • I did not do my nails every week like I wanted. I tried, but this did not happen. Maybe next year.

 Now the goals that I had for the blog were (click here for the full post)

  1. A new look/layout for the blog
  2. Do more giveaways
  3. Exclusive reporting of stores and boutiques
  4. Host an event
  5. Styling/Wardrobe Consulting
  6. Better content

I accomplished 4/6 goals set for HGB!

  • The new layout, header, and featured gallery debuted this year!
  • I hosted a total of giveaways this year!
  • I did not do any exclusive reporting or host an event because I did not manage my time well or utilize all of my resources, but this will change in 2012.
  • I began offering personal styling services and have acquired new clients! Book me here for a consultation
  • I started new segments on the blog called What to Wear and the Luxe List. I also enlisted the help of a friend/fellow blogger  Rob to do the writing for men’s wear.

This has been a great year for Her Goody Bag so here are my goals for 2012

  1. Time management! Manage my time between God, family/friends, work, social life, and the blog of course
  2. NETWORK, NETWORK, NETWORK! I am a terrible networker. I have a problem striking up conversations with random people. I know in order for the blog to grow and for me to grow as a person I need to break through this ‘shy shell’ and get out there! I need to meet and build relationships with more bloggers, designers, boutiques/stores, and brands.
  3. Comment more on blogs/facebook- I visit a lot of blogs but rarely leave comments. I love reading your comments and I am sure other bloggers feel the same. Also share links of posts that I enjoy reading
  4. Improve social Her Goody Bag’s media presence- I need to engage my readers more on Facebook and Twitter. So if you haven’t already follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook
  5. Host an event. Even if it is something small and only 15 people show up I would be grateful.
  6. New look for the blog. It’s that time to revamp again.
  7. Better content and I want to focus on developing my YouTube channel more as well.
  8. Community Service! I have to start giving back, so I will be looking in to volunteering with women’s shelters and other organizations to help women Look Good. Feel Great. Live Better.
  9. Interact more with my readers! I truly appreciate all of you and there will be a new segment added to the blog next week focusing on you! Stay tuned.

Well this will be an interesting ride. My vision board is almost completed. 2011 has been great and I am looking forward to 2012.

What are some of your goals? Have you created a vision board? Share your goals with us by leaving a comment! I will be featuring vision boards on the blog next week so get  yours done to make it on HGB!

Happy New Year!
