The Darling Nomadess: 2014 Goals

2014 Goals

I'm a little late to the party on posting about my 2014 goals. I've been thinking about them for a while now and wasn't quite sure what I want to accomplish this coming year. There's so much change in my life that is going to change and I'm not quite sure what to expect. This year, I'll be graduating from college which will make my life a whole lot different on it's own! With that said,  here are a few of my major goals (outside of blogging) for 2014!


1. Get my driver's license. Yes, I am 22 years old and do not have my license. I've tried to obtain this on multiple occasions but truth is, I hate driving with a passion. I'm also a threat to society as we know it because I'm just that bad at driving. 


2. Win a Miss Ohio America local pageant. I've been competing in the system for quite some time now and this year will be my year. I've been dreaming of competing on the Miss Ohio stage since I started competing in pageants. One thing that has been holding me back from competing more often is finances. I already have a dress, swimsuit, and all of that kind of stuff that I've been using for years, so I don't necessarily need to worry about those type of expenses. The Miss America Organization requires contestants to raise a $100 donation for the Children's Miracle Network (CMN) for each local pageant (you can view my donation page here and watch as I reach my goal!). While I adore the CMN (my little sisters are miracle babies) raising the money has proven to be difficult  as a poor college student. Within the next few weeks, I'll be launching an Etsy shop where all the proceeds will go to CMN so be on the lookout for that! Have any sorority stuff or quotes you want to see on a canvas?!


3. Have a job after graduation. I've been working since I started babysitting at 9 years old and having a steady source of income is important to my financial and mental health (hah!). Ensuring that I have a job that will help pay off my student loans upon graduation is vital for this year! 


4. Read more! I haven't had much of an opportunity to read books outside of class throughout my college years. Before college, you would never find me without my hands on a good book. With this, I also want to read out loud for 15 minutes each day to assist in developing the way I speak. 

...And there you have it! What are your goals for 2014, Darlings?



With Love,
Ashliegh

  6. I love a dark smokey eye and I think that it is a great tip to not put eyeliner on the entire bottom eyelid because it makes your eyes smaller. :) perezashley60@hotmail.com is my email . Thank you!

  8. My best makeup tip is less is more most of the time that is. With mascara and lipstick and very little of anything else most look completely put together and no one else can tell otherwise.

  16. Great goals, lovely! That's so awesome that your little sisters were miracle babies :) CMN is such an incredible organization. Fabulous giveaway, too... definitely just entered. My favorite makeup tip would have to be that less is more. Caking on makeup is never a good idea, especially if your skin is oily or acne prone.
