It is the end of the year, therefore it’s that time to say goodbye to 2016 and welcome the wonders of the new year! No matter if you had the worst or best year of your life in 2016, it’s time to close this chapter and open the next. Make 2017 an even better one!…& start it out that way! I challenge you to start it out with positivity and happiness! Be excited for what is to come in 2017!


2016 was a pretty exciting and a milestone year for me… not really sure how  I am going to top it but I am positive that God has something special in store. I had the opportunity  to travel to so many different states this year, modeled for different brands and companies, passed along my Miss United States title, graduated from the University of South Carolina, walked the Maxim Hot 100 red carpet, met an amazing guy, and created my very own fashion & lifestyle blog! It’s been an amazing year and I can not wait to see what 2017 has to offer. You know how Facebook shows you what you posted a year ago.. well one year ago today I posted a video out talking about my 2016 resolutions. I watched it today and I am glad to say that I accomplished a few of those goals! Whoop Whoop! But this year instead of accomplishing just a few of the goals, I am determined to accomplish all of them! So here is my list of 2017 New Year Resolutions that I have set for myself.

  1. Continue blogging and growing 365 Days of Summer as a brand + officially launch my YouTube channel.
  2. Make the MOVE to either NYC or LA, it’s time to turn my fashion dreams into a reality.
  3. Eat clean and dedicate at least an hour to working out daily
  4. Focus on what makes me happy.
  5. Travel to a new and exciting destination.
  6. To be a better Summer.

I am so grateful that I am starting this new year off more organized than ever thanks to The Happiness Planner ! This is not just an ordinary planner… this one is also filled with positive quotes and exercises that help you reflect on yourself. The Happiness Planner is not only designed to help keep you organized but it is also a helpful tool to get you to think about what makes you happy and fulfilled. You are creating your own happiness roadmap for the new year! It helps you lay out your goals and aspirations, your routine and schedule, as well as keeping you inspired for tomorrow!


Only you have the power to control how this new year is going to go. Plan ahead and create a positive path. The Happiness Planner helps you integrate happiness habits into your daily life! This is going to be so helpful! I will be able to stay focused on accomplishing all my new year resolutions but also focus on me and my happiness! I think The Happiness Planner is a great reminder to go after your goals but also enjoy the journey & your life.


I love that The Happiness Planner incorporates positive quotes throughout the planner. I am all for a quote! Encouraging and positive ones can always change your mood! They always make me feel powerful and that I can accomplish anything!

So lets plan for 2017 to be a year of happiness, positivity, mindfulness, gratitude, and self-development. Let’s remind ourselves to look at the positive side of things and to stop and smell the roses. Be in control of your life in 2017, and the best way to do that is to PLAN!

    Happy New Year Summer to you and your family. I’ve ordered the Happiness Planner. Thanks for spotlighting it in your blog. “HAPPY ” is an ancronym for my personal mission statement so this planner is just what I was looking for. Wishing for you many blessings during 2017. My mission statement is:
    H-hooray (celebrate successes & failures; we grow from both)
    A- a-game (always do your best)
    P – perseverance (never,never,never give up)
    P – power of one (one person can make a difference)
    Y – (growth mindset, just haven’t accomplished it yet, always learning, always growing )
