What's New . . . . 2016

Welcome to 2016 . . . . . . . . . CHEERS to the start of a new chapter, a new book, and a new year!  I'm kicking off day 1 of 2016 in full planning mode, thus the inspirational desk photo (and pink Kate Spade pumps - available HERE) above that I snagged from Pink Peonies blog.  Unlike many others that I've seen on social media, I do not have any resolutions or inspiring quotes to catapult you into the new year, just my declaration to become a better person day by day.

I'm making both a personal and professional commitment to blog twice weekly and showcase more of my style to you guys.  I even purchased a shiny new camera last week so that I can be more consistent and not have to rely on my great photographer friend, Glen, that typically takes my photos (whenever he's in town).  Glen is awesome, and he and I will still collaborate on shoots from time to time, but having my own camera allows me to put out more content!

I'm so motivated and determined to do and be more.  So much so that I revamped my logo (pictured below), updated my blog photo to my most recent headshot (pictured below), and have my first few blog posts planned out.  If you think I'm kidding, I have a rolling rack posted up in my bedroom filled with my most recent purchases!





Another essential for a productive 2016 is my new planner.  I love to write and jot things down, so I'm going old school and keeping track of my days via a planner versus my iPhone, Droid, or Google calendar.  Do you have any plans to keep you on track for the new year?
