1. Read one book a week.
...I better pick a short one for this week.
14. Get on the sleep training train.
This has been a difficult road so far but I would like to get sleep again one day so hopefully this goal is realized sooner rather than later.
15. Set up a solid skincare routine.
I'm unfortunately bad at taking care of my skin regularly. Hopefully I can turn that around this year.
16. Create an office/studio space.
I'm looking forward to moving because it offers the opportunity to create an office and studio space to really improve my content in the coming year and give me my own space to work.
17. Take frequent social media breaks.
Lately I've felt a lot of FOMO because I pretty much sit at home and scroll through Instagram all day. This year I'm going to set limits for myself and focus on not missing out on the people right in front of me.
18. Do the NYT Crossword every day.
I sound like an old person saying this but I love challenging my mind and learning new things along the way by doing crosswords.
19. Overall live a happier and healthier life.
This goal is all-encompassing. I just want to make 2019 better than any year before which is what most people want, I think.
What are some of your goals for 2019? Let me know down in the comments!
Three years ago I was sitting in a digital writing class staring at a computer trying to figure out what the hell I was going to do for the blogging assignment. I had always wanted to start a fashion blog but was too scared to start, but that class gave me reason — and a grade — to blog for almost 10 weeks on whatever our hearts desired. So Do You Have It In Black? was born, and now here we are three years later. From haveitinblack.blogspot.com to doyouhaveitinblack.weebly.com to now my own domain, doyouhaveitinblack.com, we're going to take a walk down memory lane of what I think are this blog's greatest hits.
Hey, What's Up, Hello | September 30, 2015
Obviously I had to start at the beginning. The purple hair was still going strong then, and I miss it a lot.

The first OOTD post.
Product Review: Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick | November 5, 2015
The first time I shot with Adam Lundquist. I had so much fun doing this product review and trying out all the shades, but damn my lips were burning at the end.
2015 Eyeworks Festival of Experimental Animation | November 9, 2015
More beautiful photography from Adam in what I think was one of my most fire outfits of 2015.
Product Review: ColourPop Fall 2015 "Throwback" Collection | November 20, 2015
Purple hair was gone and brunette was back. And I tried on a lot of lipsticks again while Adam worked his camera magic.
Product Review: Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss | March 22, 2016
I obviously owned too many lip products in the beginning days of this blog.
New Blog, Who Dis? | August 3, 2016
The first post on the new platform: Weebly. And here we are two years later still using Weebly to power my blog... and still wearing those Rag & Bone jeans that have definitely seen better days.
Looking Fabulous | September 29, 2016
ENGLAND, BITCHES. What I love about my blog is that it became a travel diary during my study abroad experience so I had a way to save my memories beyond just taking a photo.
Broke College Student by Robert Tavory | November 3, 2016
Working with my friend, Robert Tavory, for my first brand collaboration with Broke College Student.

NEW YORK, BITCHES. The start of the best summer of my life as I lived my dream in New York.

My obsession with red and white began that summer and lasted well throughout the fall.
The Last First Day | OOTD 9.11 | September 11, 2017
The last first day of school. It's funny to look at these photos and remember what I was hoping for at the time. Things sure did change a lot in the last year.
Blazin | OOTD 10.4 | October 5, 2017
Recognize this photo?

The Met | OOTD 6.21 | June 21, 2018
