new years resolutions-a look back!

I know it’s already the 4th of January, so by now you are probably really over this whole new year thing! I’m not yet. It’s all fresh and new, and we shouldn’t have given up on our goals yet! This year everything has already changed so much for me. I have been #blessed (cliché, I know !! Haha!) with a lot of opportunities when it comes to my career, so I’m trying to not become a ball of stress! That’s my resolution/goal number one! Number two: has to do with speaking more kindly about and to others! Sometimes I just get so irritated with people (especially my family members) It’s really hard to be patient with the people we love most right, probably because we know how great they really are? Or maybe I’m just nuts. Number three: is getting back to my fitness goals! I did a really good job of this during the summer! I did really bad once school got busy. It helps me to relax and feel more healthy, so CJ is making a deal with me that if a work of a certain number of days, he will take me away on a weekend getaway! That’s my kind of goal!

These are just a few of my goals this year, the rest are private so I encourage you take a stab at some goals of your own! It’s not too late. Don’t be too hard on yourself, and don’t set yourself up for failure. I know you can do it.

A look back at HappyLittleShoppingSecret’s first few months!

2015 was a big year for me because I just decided to bring my love of deals to the blog/insta world! I hope it’s been an enjoyable ride for the rest of you. I decided it would be fun to show you what was the most fun for me to write about and post about! I hope you thought so too! Most of these photos can be exclusively found on my instagram (@happylittleshoppingsecret) We had a great time creating content this year and finding deals.

A Deal to Make This Post Worth Your While

I’m devoted to giving you what my blog is said to be about. A lot of times I find myself reading a blog that is supposed to have a central purpose, and when it deviates, I get discouraged! I don’t want to do that to you. That’s why even when the deals start to slow down, I’m always on the hunt for new boutique brands or something else to make this interesting!

Maybe your resolution is to dress like a total dream this year. Well, this deal from gap will get you there. Seriously. I’m about to order these very things. THE GREAT WINTER GAP SALE. 

up to 75% off on 100s of styles and an extra 30% off your entire purchase with the code: NOW.

Be sure to click these links, because you’ll be shocked at how cheap these are 🙂 !!


The Side Zip Sweater– Get it here. These are cool right now and this is a great deal to get in on the trend, my dear friends!


Zip Pointe Leggings– Get them here. Pair these sleek leggings with a long sweater and booties, and you’ll definitely be the most chic girl in class. Pair them with cool nikes or new balance 620’s and ever girl will envy how effortless you can look.


Wrap Cardigan– Get it here.

Thanks for your support throughout 2015! I’d be nothing without you. I’m always so shocked at what kind of response I get on what posts. You’d be surprised if I told you what go the most hits. Nevertheless, I actually enjoy this little blog o’ mine. I truly believe that cute clothes should be got at a steal. Like this coat I got from Banana Republic the other day. It was originally $300. I ended up buying it for $74. I felt like I was stealing from them or something. It was magnificent. I want you to feel like that every time, or something close, when you leave my blog.

That’s all for today. Remember, if you have any places you want to hear about deals for give me a shout (email, fb, etc.) and I’ll try and watch out for it. I hope you take the chance to make your goals and progress as much as you can in 2016! It makes life happy. (So does shopping with a sweet deal)

happy shopping,
