New Year – Fresh Start

Hello from four floors up!


blogger holding letter board that reads, "new year ... fresh start"


I am so sorry that I have not posted since early December! Finals came and went, and now I am back home in Baltimore, Maryland with my family. I had a very relaxing Christmas and New Year’s surrounded by friends and family & I hope you did too!


The New Year comes with resolutions and goals for the future. As I consider the new year and the beginning of my spring semester at SJU, I look forward to further involving myself in my interests at school, as well as trying new things outside of my comfort zone.


I received several things this Christmas that I look forward to using in the New Year – many of them being new products that I have not yet shared on four floors up! Keep reading to learn more about these products and how they can improve your life in 2017.


Letterfolk Letter board

This gift was such a surprise from my mom – an old fashioned letter board! Handcrafted by a husband and wife in the USA, Letterfolk is run by Johnny and Joanna. Visit Letterfolk to learn more about their amazing mission and to view their product. I received the 10″ x 10″ silver aluminum-framed letter board which includes a 290-piece set of ¾” letters and numbers so that you can customize your board. I am looking forward to decorating my letter board with inspirational words and phrases during the New Year!

Bullet Journal  

Bullet journals are all the craze this year! If you love to make lists, plan out your week, or establish concrete goals for yourself, consider investing in a bullet journal! After scrolling through images on Pinterest of dedicated bullet journalists and their beautiful creations, I was determined to start a bullet journal. Simply spending 5 minutes at the start of the day documenting in your journal will help you to establish goals for your week and maintain an organized and orderly lifestyle. Visit the official bullet journal site to learn more! I am excited to dedicate more posts in the future to my bullet journal once I begin to make my journal my own and customize it!

Health and Beauty Products

To maintain healthy and clear skin this year, I am excited to try out these new products! I have always been a fan of the Yes to Cucumbers Paper Masks which you can find at Target or your local drugstore.

Regarding new products, I am excited to say that I am loving the Yes to Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturizer and the Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel. I love using both of these products after showering, as they leave my skin feeling refreshed. I am very careful and considerate of what products I put on my skin, so I am very pleased that these products have cooperated with my sensitive skin!


I am also looking forward to trying these beauty products in the future…
