January’s 3 New Things
Happy New Year, loves! I thought about posting last week and yesterday too but decided to wait until January 1st to post my 3 new things! I started this series to better tackle trying new things and to list goals. There’s something quite daunting about making a resolution for an entire year. We all change and evolve day-to-day…why confine ourselves to something over a 12 month period? I definitely do have goals for 2013 but they are more directly tied to my business/finances. I won’t bore you with the details. So here are 3 things for January:
- Create a Calendar for Correspondence + Care Packages: In 2012, I realize how much I love stationery, sending mail and receiving it as well! I downloaded this sheet to keep track of birthdays, anniversaries and other important dates. It’ll help me plan ahead and make sure I actually ship everything off in time.
- Organize Our Closets: We have pretty large closets in our new townhouse and since moving in…we’ve just been throwing things around and shutting the door. Time to clean and organize. I would love a better method to display my shoes and I’m going to snag some colorful felt hangers from Marshall’s.
- Create a Vanity Area: Inspired by this photo by Catherine, I decided to take advantage of our huge bedroom and create an area where I can put on my makeup, display jewelry + more! I haven’t found the perfect vanity table/mirror but I purchased this beautiful tray with an Etsy giftcard that I received for Christmas.
December’s 3 New Things update: I ended up purchasing artwork to go over our bed (still nothing hung yet), I skipped out on super creative gift wrapping (although I’m sending out some fun New Year cards) and fell in love with all of NARS lipstick.
A weekly email where I share things that made me stop and consider. Never sponsored, no affiliate links.
i got a pretty white vanity for my room (from target) before ember was born…too bad i kept it pretty for about 3 months and now it is just a dumping station for all beauty products…for, like, 5+ years now. oops.
I love the idea of tackling a few big things each month. Good luck with all of your goals! We recently hyper-organized our closet + it has been an amazing boost to our day to day life. xoxo! eliza
That tray is BEAUTIFUL! I love your 3 new things column..I need to seriously think about doing it myself. Thank you for sharing !
