Happy New Year!

Happy 2014! We rang in the new year with confetti cannons, crepes, and some really good dance moves.  I hope you guys had a blast welcoming the new year and kissing 2013 goodbye! I always make a couple of resolutions and I like to post them here to help make me accountable. So here we go!

1. Be Kind. 

I consider myself a kind person, but I want to really focus on this.  I want to be kind in my actions, thoughts, and words.  Lately I have just felt so bogged down by how people treat each other. I have a couple of "pay it forward" ideas like pay for a strangers coffee or leaving random notes but I would love to hear suggestions! I am seriously excited about this resolution!

2. Make a list and Stick to it

This really applies to home decor/projects.  Here is my problem-I go into a store and find things I love, buy them, and then forget that I really should've been looking for baskets because that's what I truly need.  I get really excited and then completely blank.  It's incredibly annoying and counter productive.  So I've made a list on my phone and I am sticking to it.  First off is wallpaper! I've been wanting to wallpaper a certain wall for like 3 years. It's time guys.

3. Dedicate time and energy to this blog

Last year I worked on a new design and name for the blog and it just never got off the ground.  Because I was waiting on it I really didn't blog that much. It was a huge bummer! I plan on blocking out time for pictures and posts.  Since I am graduating this year I will have so much more time and energy to accomplish this.  Let me tell you, design school is so incredibly draining.  I am going to miss it, but I am looking forward to a better schedule.

4. Quality over Quantity

This applies especially to clothing.  I love me some bargains.  However, I've noticed that in the long run it costs more money because the construction doesn't hold up as well.  I will still be looking for deals, but not for everything.  I want to work on replacing items in my closet, especially shoes.  It will be interesting to see how this plays out.  

Did you guys make resolutions? If so I would love to hear them!


  1. #2 speaks to my heart. I never feel more ADHD than when I'm in Target. Ooooh, purses! 50% off? Sure! A duvet cover? You bet. I'm not even totally sure what a duvet is, or why I need to cover it, but I'm sold! Then I get home and realize I forgot the toilet paper. Story.of.my.life.

    1. I do it too! I already broke this resolution at Target. It was a glass water bottle with a beautiful wood top. GLASS! And it doesn't hold very much. Totally not practical. Totally going back. I will probably shed a tear though. haha
