Happy 2013! I hope that you all had a wonderful NYE and are ready for the new year. I had a fun evening celebrating with some of my closest friends and spent New Year's Day having breakfast with one of my best friends and then spent the day with my husband's family. Overall, it was a great way to start the new year----with people that I love. (And of course, I missed those that I didn't get to see!) How was your NYE and day? I hope you had a wonderful time and had some time to reflect on the past year and the upcoming one as well.
I have never believed in resolutions because I don't think it's fair to bind myself to certain things (you guys may know by now that I'm pretty obsessive about things, and making a resolution means that I have to follow through 100% no matter what) but I do like to look back over the year and see what changes I would like to make for the next. Part of those changes include ones for this blog. This blog has been such a fun & positive experience for me, and I can't thank those of you enough who have truly been a part of it.
Many of you may have noticed that my comment count has been getting increasingly lower and I have been visiting blogs less often. The truth is that I've only been visiting blogs that I truly find inspiring to myself and/or that I feel give me valuable feedback on my own blog. This may sound harsh, but I have been seeing so many of the same comments over and over again--and to be honest- this makes me beyond frustrated. I feel like sometimes people are leaving the same comment all over the blogosphere in hopes for a comment back on their blog, and I really just can't spend my time going back to every blog anymore. My blog was started as a personal style diary- as a form of documentation for me to record what I wear- and the comments are always an added bonus. I always love reading your genuine and sincere thoughts about what I'm wearing or what I've said on my post....so for those of you who do that, thank you.
Documenting my style has always been important to me- in high school, I kept a written log of what I wore each day so that I would never wear the same outfit twice. Yes, this is true. In all 4 years of high school, I did not repeat the same outfit, and I meticulously wrote down every detail at the end of each day so that I would know what I had worn in case I wanted to check back. My mom kept this for some reason, and when I found it a few years ago, it was funny to look back over. Of course, this was a long time ago, but my point is that I'm truly crazy, madly passionate about style, and I'm trying to emphasize that is the most important part of this blog. So, for 2013, you'll see me to continue to document my style, and I hope that those of you who truly love to come to visit will continue to do so. AND I promise that I'm going to try to include more DIY's...because I know a lot of you like them, and I enjoy making them as well.
You'll also notice one more thing on the side of my blog- links to my favorite pages- and no, I'm not talking about the blogs that EVERYONE visits. I'm talking about amazing, inspirational women whose blogs I must see on a daily basis before going to bed at night. I hope you find inspiration in some of them as well.
If you have read through all of this, thank you. You rock. :)
