A New Year

Old-Design

Well, after a bit of a hiatus, I’m back to the blog! Although I didn’t really post over the holidays, I wasn’t completely idle- did you notice that things are looking a little different around here?

I decided that my blog design needed a little bit of a refresh and this is what I came up with! I’d love to hear any of your feedback- let me know what you think in the comments below.

As I slowly ease back into real life here in NYC, I’ve started to think a bit about my New Year’s resolutions. Although my true list is written down in one of my journals (you know I’m old-school), I thought I would also share a few resolutions here on the blog.

1. Food: My goal is to try a new recipe every week. Towards the second half of 2012, I started to cook a lot more of my meals to save money. This year I’d like to continue that trend as well as push myself to try out new things in the kitchen. If it goes well, I’ll share my attempted recipes on the blog!

2. Books: I’m super proud of myself for completing my goal of reading more in 2012- my final total for the year was 26! I’d like to keep that going and push myself to read even more this year. Reading is one of my favorite hobbies and I’m glad I’ve picked it up again.

3. Money: This is an ongoing challenge, but I’d like to be better with my finances. The goal here is to set a reasonable budget and really stick to each month.

I’ll be back to regular posting next week and I’ll have some snapshots and outfits from the holidays to share with you all then!

Tell me: What do you think of the new design? Also, what are some of your New Year’s resolutions?
