What to Expect from Me in 2017 // Anthropologie Fairy Dress

These photos were shot in Hawaii around Christmas, but since I was travelling I didn't have a steamer and I failed to notice that my dress was hella wrinkled until I was editing the photos later.  I knew I wouldn't be able to make a full post out of these pictures, so I figured I'd use them for this post.  Look for a better post featuring this dress, coming to the blog soon.  :-)  This one is a post that I've been excited to share with you guys: What to Expect from Me in 2017.  

I know, it's the middle of February, and I'm a little late in posting this, but better late than never.  I've got some really exciting things lined up for this year and I can't wait to share them with you all.  So without further ado, here's what to look for from me in 2017.  

New York City
Perhaps the biggest event of the year for me will be living in New York City for a little bit this summer.  I'll be studying at Columbia University, so I'm temporarily moving to the Big Apple!  I am so excited to explore New York City and experience living in a urban setting.  I've already started planning out where I want to go and what I want to see, but if anyone has a recommendation that I should check out in NYC, please let me know in the comments!  And of course I'll be sharing a little bit more about the trip here on the blog so follow along.  I'm so happy to see where this adventure leads.

This year I'll be taking my first international trip in a long time (it's been almost 5 years since I've left the USA last).  My destination is Ireland, a place that has been on my travel bucket list for a long time, and I'm going this spring.  International travel is something that excites me and terrifies me at the same time- on one hand it's so amazing to experience different cultures on the other side of the world, but on the other hand flying, especially long flights, always mess up my body in some way and I usually end up sick, not to mention the insane anxiety I get whenever I fly.  With that being said, I've been anticipating this trip for a long time.  I can't wait to snap some pictures and share this adventure with you as well.

Social Media
I've gotten much more regular about posting on Instagram, which I hardly ever did at the beginning of the year, and now I've got a schedule of almost every other day for IG posts {follow me @juliacmazzucato}.  This year I'm actually going to try and be more active on YouTube as a social media platform for my blog.  I'm going to try to put together fashion and lifestyle videos- some things I've considered are a Makeup Routine video, clothing/beauty hauls, vegan recipes, or maybe even travel vlogs while I'm in Ireland and New York.  Let me know if you would be interested in any of those things, and subscribe at Julia Mazzucato.

Over 2016, even though it was a difficult year, I got to know myself even more and become much more comfortable with who I am and how I look.  I talked a tiny bit last year about how I sometimes get really neurotic about photos of myself and how I tend to nitpick little details of myself until they're all I can see in a picture, sometimes leading me to trash entire photoshoots.  This is not mentally healthy at all.

I used to wear sunglasses in almost every blogpost to cover up my face.  There's nothing wrong with sunglasses, but I would wear them in posts where they were unnecessary to the outfit.  I just wanted to cover up my face because I was pretty self conscious about it.  Toward the beginning of the year I wore sunglasses in basically every post, but as the year progressed I started posting more and more outfits without me wearing them and showing my face a little more.  2016 was a really hard year, but the struggle makes you stronger.  I'm coming into 2017 with a renewed confidence in myself and my goals.


So that's what's coming in 2017 for me!  I'm very excited for this year's adventures and I can't wait to share them with you.  Thank you for following along on my blog and connecting with me.  The friends that I have met on here have made every single minute spent blogging completely worth it.  I hope you'll stick around with me this year.  Let's make 2017 a good one!
