Happy New Year

Happy New Year, Happy Everything

Happy 2019 to all of you!

Dancing! I’m dancing into 2019 because I am pretty excited for it! Few things invigorate and inspire me more than a fresh start. Let me tell you a little of what my blog is going to look like this year.

First and foremost my “Fast Fashion” segment. Now this isn’t your fast fashion that is talked about in the industry as a no-no. Such as things that go right from the catwalk to stores like Forever 21 very quickly to capture a trend. (And by the way there is nothing wrong with Forever 21)  But my “Fast Fashion” is me doing a post on the faster side because who has time to read forever? Same with all of my posts. Nice and fast! Stay tuned for tomorrow when I really get into the fashion talk and what I’m focusing on this year.

For “Perfectly Plated” again with keeping this fast, simple, and often times fancy. Cooking with things I’ve never cooked with before and hoping to bring you great information, quick and delicious recipes, and hopefully lots of tips to make cooking less intimidating and much more fun.  

“My Martini Moment” is going to be a wild card. I’m very organized but hey, I like to still keep things interesting. But drink recipes? Oh yes. And sometimes only that. But how-to chicness, yes to that too. 

I’m thrilled to be sauntering into another year with you all! Thanks for stopping by!

The Happiest New Year

Happy New Year!!

I basically flipped out when I realized that January 1st, 2018 was on a MONDAY! You may not know this about me but I have always loved Monday's and when the year starts on one it's the most perfect way for a fresh start!

So talking fresh starts and now that I'm back and blogging, let me share with you what I'll have going on. Fashion and food of course, and I'm really excited to bring back my Martini Moment but it's coming back with a twist...see what I did there? Since the arrival of Baby K this will be my one mom post a week. Friday's will be "Mom's Martini Moment". Because what new Mom (or any Mom) doesn't deserve a drink at the end of the week? 

I always like to reflect on the year that has passed and I'll tell you it was one like I've never experienced. What went from a year that was planned to be full of travel (Venice, Iceland etc.) turned into one full of sleeping, eating, and in the end, delivering a baby. I couldn't be more happy or feel more blessed. But this new land of motherhood has me in a different frame of mind more than ever before. I always have resolutions. I feel like it isn't New Years without them.

Here are my very simple goals for 2018:

More reasons to celebrate. Like new shoes or simply because it's Tuesday and it's a great day to be alive.

More shoes (sorry MK) 

Allow time to appreciate the little things. Like more than four consecutive hours of sleep.   

Further cultivate my love of fashion. 

More. Organization. 

Run more often.  

Be a good Mom, raise a good human.  

Date nights.  

Champagne Sunday's. 

More dog walks.  

Make more time to read.

Hello 2017!

Happy New Year Everyone!!! 

I've been taking in the last moments of 2016, enjoying every second, and bracing myself for a new year. I absolutely love when a new year greets us. Seventeen was my favorite number as a kid so here's hoping for a good year. New Years is always a time of reflection, 2016 was very interesting for me. One of my favorite parts of the past year was that I took the big step of quitting my job and working solely for our own company. I'm a huge House Of Cards fan and one of my favorite quotes from it is "If you don't like the way the table it set, turn over the table." That really struck a cord with me and its something I think I'll always carry with me. Thanks Frank Underwood. 

That's a big thing I feel that I've learned from 2016 and will take with me into the new year, no one is in charge of your life but you. Own it and believe in you. So it may sound a little cliche but I love resolutions no matter what time of year it may be, but a new one is a perfect opportunity.

So here are mine:

More love

More parties

More me time

Less obsession for perfection

More date nights

Much more creating (more on that later)

More travel

More adventures

 

So here's to a new year, new possibilities, and not a new, but better you. I hope to help with that even just a bit. I'm all about bettering myself, I hope this is a little place for you to stop for your little dose of glam.

Cheers friends and thank you for stopping by!
