Happy New Year! I know that's almost a week late, but with the short week last week, this week felt like the official beginning of the new year. It was nice to let myself have the extra few days I needed before getting back into the swing of things helping to fulfill one of my New Year's resolutions: to relax.
Last year, I started an MBA program, I coached figure skating, I freelanced, I blogged, and I was the social chair for my sorority's alumnae organization in Pittsburgh. If I've learned anything in the past year, it was that I should do a better job of carving out time to relax or do something that I enjoy. That is easier said than done, but I want to continue to work on making that a part of my normal routine in the new year.
In addition to a handful of cliché goals, I dreamed up some style goals for the year. Writing this blog and the things I thrift, make and style because of it are some of the activities I enjoy the most. So I am hoping to do more of that in the New Year, while at the same time not pressuring myself to meet self-imposed deadlines. I want posts to come naturally and not feel forced because I haven't posted in a few weeks, and I feel guilty about it.
Here are my style resolutions for the year. Feel free to share your resolutions in the comments below.
Wear more lipstick.
Try more new hair styles.
