With the new year officially underway, I thought I'd share a few of my personal goals for 2013 with you. I like making a list of resolutions at the beginning of the year as something to work toward. I know that I might not accomplish all of them, but I'd like to do the best I can!
1. Take better care of my hair.
I use I lot of styling tools on my hair and often forget to use heat protectant sprays beforehand. As a result, I've noticed that my hair has gotten pretty dry and damaged. I want to reverse it!
2. Exercise more.
I began jogging at the beginning of this year and loved it. Unfortunately my schedule made it hard for me to continue. I will definitely try to work time in for running at least a few days a week.
3. Wear sunscreen every day.
We all know that this is super important but often neglect to do it anyway. I would like to change this by buying everyday products that already contain sunscreen. For instance, I love CoverGirl's NatureLuxe foundation, which has SPF 10, and Jergens Natural Glow & Protect daily moisturizer, which has SPF 20. It is an easy way to protect myself without really thinking about it.
4. Put my creativity to work.
I love to be creative and make new things, whether they be tasty recipes or homemade cards. However, I often use my free time to watch tv or just lounge around instead of doing something more productive. This year I would love to take some time every week to work on a different project.
5. Give thanks.
This is such a simple but meaningful resolution. It feels so good when someone thanks you for doing something, such as taking the time to make dinner or giving a gift. I want to make sure I thank others more often and let them know that they are truly appreciated by sending out thank you cards or even just saying a few thoughtful words to them.
Thank you all for following me in 2012. Here's to a great 2013!

I realize it was probably too cold to wear this shirt outside. I should have been sensible and put on something with long sleeves. Yet, as soon as I saw this shirt hanging in my closet I was reminded of warmer days. It's so perfectly light and pretty that I couldn't help myself. Who cares if it's 20 degrees outside? Sometimes a girl just needs a bit of summer to cheer herself up.

So, first of all, I just wanted to apologize for my unannounced break from blogging. I had a bunch of projects to finish up and events to attend. Now I am back to blogging though and am super excited about it. 2012 was a great year (I started blogging!) and I think that 2013 is going to be even better. I wanted to start the year off on a classy note, which this outfit accomplished perfectly.
Happy New Year everyone! Follow me on Blogger and on Bloglovin!
