New Year... new me?

courtesy of

Nothing's better than the start of a new year to make some resolutions!
Usually, I'm not a believer of resolutions as I hardly attempt to stick to them, but with the US in the throes of a recession and me going back to school, it is more important than ever to manage my money wisely.

This definitely means spending less on clothes that I do not need and buying less into trends. I think I have done a good job of sticking to this, but my wardrobe could probably do with a few more resolution tune-ups, namely:
  1. Declutter - this means clearing out stuff that I do not wear or just doesn't suit me anymore!
  2. Shop More... in the closet! Pastels, shorts, chunky jewellery, ruffles...these are some of the trends for S/S 09 that stood out to me and which I'm pretty sure I can find in my closet!
  3. Stick to the list - namely my "must-have" list. A good watch has been on my list since forever and I realized that if I haven't given into temptation and bought a cheaper item because it is easily accessible, I would have purchased some of my "most-haves" by now. I probably will have to set my money aside for school since the new term starts in Fall, but I do hope that I will never lose sight of my must-have list and cross off each item in the near future.
What are some of your resolutions for this new year?

Try to live a healthy life meaning that I will try to eat at least 1 piece of fruit every more excersise (we have a balance board for our daughter's Wii now, so finally I'm getting into yoga !!)

Spend more time with people that deserve my time - give and take ...
Ditching the people that only spread bad vibes and trying to be a more positive person myself !
Read at least 5 books this year (and not only during my vacation...)

Stand up for myself and not pleasing everybody else because I should be...

Helping my husband quit smoking ...stand by your man as they say ... :-D

similar to yours: i just donated a large amount of clothing, I also love making, and following my lists [and do not go for cheaper or trendy replacements].

Can I say, I just broke my resolution and bought some stuff from Forever21? :( This resolution thing does get some getting used to!

I hope both of you are still doing well with your resolution lists!
