January has been a lovely month so far. I’m starting to chip away at my goals for this year, and I’m looking forward to doing a lot of traveling in the next few months! Next week, thankfully, I’ll be going to LA for work, which is perfect timing because it still hasn’t warmed up enough in New York. It’s definitely been an uncommonly harsh winter, so some warmer weather, palm trees, and sundresses just may be enough to thaw me out—at least for a weekend. 🙂
This year, my new year’s resolution is to work out and get fit. I’ve always been underweight and have never really worked out before, but being healthy is, of course, not always tied to being slim. Being healthy means eating right, making good decisions about the food you eat, and exercising. But since I didn’t know where to start, the Home DNA Healthy Weight™ test came in extremely handy. Here’s what it is and how it can help you with your fitness goals.
I love dressing in pastel tones during winter because the pale, muted colors match both my mood and the soft whiteness of snowfall (of which we’ve had a LOT lately). This week’s look is a more casual look, made special with the addition of these metallic-patterned boots I scored for cheap. Hope you like!
Is there any poet more known for nature and winter than Robert Frost? I thought it would be appropriate and fun today to share one of my favorite poems about winter, since last week’s snowstorm is still fresh in our minds, the temperature outside is still way below freezing, and it snowed again a couple days ago! I gotta say, I love winter, but can it take a break for a couple days? 😉
It’s been crazy cold and very snowy here in New York. As I write this I’m enjoying a snow day from work due to the absurdly named “Bomb Cyclone” winter storm, and I have to say, I could definitely get used to this. There’s something about winter and snow that always makes me happy, calm, and cheerful. January is one of my favorite months of the year because it’s cold and cozy—such a great excuse to stay inside and read. But if you do go out, here’s some outfit inspiration for ya.
Well, it’s that time of year again! Another year over, a new one just begun…
Usually I like to do a roundup of my favorite books from the year and I thought I’d also shine a spotlight on some of the other things I’ve tried this year, like beauty products. So without further ado, here’s a roundup of the Best of 2017.
It’s only 3 days until Christmas, so in case you still need holiday outfit inspiration, and red is one of your favorite colors, then this post is for you. All season long I’ve been sharing festive holiday looks based on my favorite color (red and everything that looks like red) and my favorite holiday (Christmas, duh). This last one is my favorite, and will be the look I wear on Christmas Day!
Are you the kind of person who makes new year’s resolutions? I always do, but I try to frame them as goals instead. I feel like it keeps me motivated if I’m eager to check off a box, so I try to be specific when I make resolutions. Last year, my resolutions were to be healthy, learn how to cook and how to dance, and to travel. So how’d I do?
I love a good sheer crop top for layering, but on the day I took these pictures it was 22 degrees…and the “real feel” was 8. Even though I almost froze my toesies right off, I love the way this look turned out. Sheer tops are a huge trend this year, though perhaps for warmer days. 😉 I especially love the way the colors of this top are perfect for the holiday season.
If there was ever a perfect season for reading, winter is it. The short days and cold nights all scream “stay in with a book” and it’s such a comforting, wonderful feeling! During the holidays when my tree is up, there’s nothing I love more than hunkering down with a really big book and sipping hot chocolate while I read. Here are a few books I’ve read recently that would all make excellent companions during the long, cold winter.
