Summer, for some reason, is always the time people are making bucket lists. They think that this summer they are going to do such amazing and exciting things. Since I’m me, I decided to join the bandwagon.
Here are ten things I would like to accomplish summer 2017.
1. Spend more time outside
Yes, that is a little pathetic. I just happen to always spend my free time in my bedroom watching Netflix. Bugs and the sun just aren’t my friends. Being pale, I’m always sunburnt and have to wear a whole bottle of sunscreen when I want to spend time outside. Bug bite and fly around you and are just annoying.
2. Get in shape
This always ends up on my bucket lists but I never end up doing it. Honestly, I don’t see it happening this summer either. I think we all want that ‘perfect’ summer body. I just don’t know if I’ll have time between my summer class and working to actually properly work out. I do enjoy taking walks with my pupper but that’s again when I have free time.
3. Learn new makeup techniques
I’ve been completely addicted to watching makeup tutorials again. I love how people are so original and so creative. Makeup is a way to express yourself so that other people can see your personality or even just your talent. I try to branch out from my usual warm toned looks but it’s just what I go towards. I’d like to try more products as well. I’ve been using the same products for over a year and I have got too comfortable using them to branch out. I don’t like wasting my money on something that doesn’t work for my skin.
4. Have badass hair
I’ve already had badass hair in the past. If you know me in real life, you probably remember my pink hair, my gray hair, my orange hair, my colored bangs, my dark hair, my bleached hair, literally every color that exists has been in my hair. This summer I want to have rose gold hair and then when that fades I want just nice light brown hair with highlights. I’m so sick of having hair that only has one color in it. I feel like it’s bland and boring.
5. Go to one concert
I really want to see Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, Fitz and the Tantrums, Glass Animals, Bruno Mars, Bastille, Katy Perry, Halsey, Milky Chance, Lady Gaga, etc. Of course, I work at a minimum wage job and won’t even be able to afford to go to one of these. I also have no friends who have the same music taste that will go to the cheaper concerts anyways. It’s always nice to dream though.
6. Learn how to put fake eyelashes on properly
This is probably the only one that I can actually accomplish. For some reason, I can never put on my eyelashes on evenly. I know it takes time and practice but I’m a very impatient person. I want to be able to slay like the makeup community.
7. Be a part of the makeup community
This is never going to happen when I, 1: I can never take nice pictures of my good makeup days. 2: I can’t do amazing makeup anyways. I really love makeup, ask anyone. I just will never be as good as these 13-year-olds on Twitter.
8. Redo my bedroom
I was actually going to do this last summer but never got around to it. I still need to take my old carpeting out and paint my walls. I bought new bedding and pillows last summer. I will gradually get there. I have a feeling that once I’m finished, I’ll be done with college and be moving to a city.
9. Learn how to make my own clothing
I’ve always wanted to learn how to construct my own clothing. I know it takes a lot of work and time but I honestly want to learn. I will be taking a clothing constructing class in the fall semester but I’d like to get a head start. I also have been watching coolirpa on YouTube. She really inspired me to try to transform clothing into something I would wear. PS: Check out her videos they will blow your mind.
10. Grow my social media
I’d really like to get back into Instagram. I used to post at least twice a week and I completely neglected my feed. I also would match my feed in some way, either by similar color or even filter. I just stopped and I’ve been losing likes and follows because of it. I’d also like to gain follows on Twitter to try and make it in the makeup community there. The most important field I’d like to grow is this blog. I’m already completely blown away how supportive people are but I’d love to get readers who aren’t friends of mine or people who I know.
I’d love to hear what you guys really want to do this summer. It’s a time for adventures, so take one.
