Friday Fancies : New Year, New You?

I've never really been one for resolutions (I mean, I think about things I might like to change or enhance in the new year but I never consciously write them down). 
When I saw the prompt for today's Friday Fancies link up, I immediately started to think about what I might like to change about myself.
Fashion-wise, I have definitely found my personal style in good quality classics mixed with a dose of inexpensive fun and funky (do people still say funky?) pieces thrown in. 
Original is always good. 
And I've always been all about the details. A bow here. A pleat there. A little leather.
That will never change. 
New Year, New You
where to find the above pieces here
A few of my personal goals for the year include:
Get to New York. Visit the 911 memorial.
Spend an extended vacation in Florida again. 
Drink more water. 
Get Ava into a preschool program a few mornings a week.
Organize my photos. Back them up. Ditto our videos.
Eat healthier. {while this is a broad one, know that I have watched far too many documentaries about our food and what's in it the last few weeks. it scared me.} Less sugar is my main goal starting with my morning coffee.
Set new goals for this little blog. 
Take a photography course.
Practice yoga.
Say a final farewell to diet coke. 
I will miss you.

This is going to be the year of change.
I can feel it.
Happy New Year everyone!

Linking up here and here

  6. Sounds like great goals!

    A friend of mine teaches photography workshops (that's where I learned all that I know), and put out an ebook version of her classes if you want to check it out! http://noemiphotography.com/blog/focused-photography-ebook-download/

  7. I say “funky” all the time. But I wouldn’t judge your vocabulary by mine ... I still say things like “Holy Macrol, Andy,” too.

    Love your goals for the year, but truly, I wouldn’t change a thing about you!

  8. Oh diet coke, such a demon. I have battled that one before. Iya been years now, thank goodness!
    Your so funny, "do people still say funky?" as if your 100 years old! Your cute! I missed you!

  9. First Sretna Nova Godina!
    Now what a great list, a little of everything, I'll be taking that photography class once Luka is in school.

    I hope you're enjoying 2013.

  10. my shopping/fashion resolution is the exact same as yours!! buy more classic timeless pieces and trendy cheaper items!

    Sandy a la Mode

  11. last year, i dabbled in a bunch of the trends and i didn't feel quite like myself. i need to get back to those classics as well. water and photography are on my list as well!

    love the scarf...

  12. I just found your blog. You have fabulous - and attainable - style. And your kids are darling! I am looking forward to seeing new spring outfits! I have been searching for a pair of post earrings that would be suitable for everyday wear. The posts in the give away would be perfect. Blessings, Susan
