New Year Resolutions – 2019

January 1, 2019

It’s finally 2019! I say that like it took centuries to get through 2018, but actually, the year went by pretty quickly. I remember that January and February of 2019 did seem to take a long time, then March through December went by fast. I am pretty excited for what’s to come in 2019, and I hope that everyone has a great year as well.

My New Year Resolutions

  1. Take better care of my skin
  2. Write more
  3. Procrastinate less
  4. Eat healthier
  5. Try to stay more organized

I decided this year to try to stay minimal with my new year resolutions, because I didn’t want to overwhelm myself. Instead, I am going to give myself smaller goals on a more weekly or monthly basis throughout the year. I find that I get more disappointed if I have a huge list of resolutions or goals, and mess up on them.

These top five resolutions are my main goals for the year, and what I need inspiration on the most. I already started off on my list today, and spent most of my morning deep cleaning my bedroom. Over the holiday’s it tends to get messy and crowded, and I took a few hours to try to throw away things that I have been holding onto for too long. I also re-organized a lot as well, and I already feel so much better.

Above is my new 2019 planner, and I am so thrilled to use it. Nothing feels better than having a new planner to start the year off with.

What are you looking forward to this year? Got any resolutions you want to share? Let me know in the comments below.

Other than my blog, I regularly post on Instagram. Be sure to give me a follow @annamaxwell018 or @LittlebitPatchCo for updates on my daily life.



Bath & Bodyworks Fall Candle Haul

October 2, 2018

If you know anything about me, you know that I LOVE candles! Almost to the point of I love them too much. Let’s be honest, I own over 50 Bath & Bodyworks candles so I’m pretty sure I passed that point already.

Now I don’t just go into Bath & Bodyworks and buy 15 candles in one shopping trip. I might end up with 8 at the most per trip, but usually it’s between 4-6. Since I am living at my parents house as I am finishing up college, they also love the candles. Usually each shopping trip we split up the candles. I pay for half of them, and they pay for half of them. We also only buy candles when they are 50% off(which happens pretty often) and we have a 20% off coupon.

My Fall Collection

Over the past month and a half, my mom and I have gone to Bath & Bodyworks at least twice and bought probably 12 or so candles altogether. So we have got almost all of the Fall collection apart from a handful of ones we didn’t really like.

I think my favorites are the apple cinnamon cider, leaves, and autumn. Don’t get me wrong, I like all of them to a certain extent, but those are my go-to’s. I think the only ones I wouldn’t repurchase is bourbon maple and blueberry maple pancakes. They smell great, but the throw the candles give out is a little too strong. I can’t leave them burning for a long time, and usually I like to have a softer throw for candles. However, both bourbon maple and blueberry maple pancake are true scent wise. 

What candles have you bought from their Fall/Autumn candles? What is your favorite?
