How to Get Out of Your Rut

I've already failed on one of my New Year's Resolutions: blogging consistently. Can I blame it on the fact that Mercury was in retrograde this entire month? If I can do that, I am. January has never been a really good month for me. I hate winter. A lot. I may live in Georgia, but winter still really affects me, and it's hard for me to want to do anything. It's been raining a lot, and it's cold and grey. Not my weather at all, so the past couple of weeks, I've been determined to get myself out of my rut, especially so I can start blogging. 

Okay so it snowed maybe half a centimeter on Saturday... It was gone by the afternoon. 

1. Take a shower. If I feel gross, I don't want to do anything. If my hair needs to be washed or anything, I am just not up for anything until I shower. I always feel better afterwards and more motivated. Washing my hair and my face instantly changes my mood. Here's my typical shower routine. (But here's the shampoo I use right now.)

2. Watch something inspiring. I love documentaries, especially fashion ones. I plan on doing a list of my favorites and ones that I want to watch (watch out for that one Friday), but here are some quick recommendations. Dior and I, Iris, and the September Issue. Watching the three of those just made me want to create and work. 

3. Put on great music. I've already shared this playlist with y'all, but I love it. Lately I have also being loving Pandora's Thumbprint Radio. It's basically a compilation of all the songs you've thumbs uped. I like it because it features all my favorite music. Then One Direction is always on replay. I just got their latest album for my car, and I am pumped for the drive to school now. 

4. Wear bright, nice clothes. I'm a second semester senior. I know all about Norts/leggins and an oversized tshirt, but while I am comfy, I don't necessarily feel great. I do feel great when I wear bright colors to block out the gray skies. I have red Hunter rain boots that seriously brighten up any day. Bright button downs and accessories are also perfect. Caroline's outfits lately have been great, and Krista just did a great post about this.
