Favorite Things: Required Reading

I may not make New Year’s Resolutions but there’s nothing that inspires me to clean/organize like the start of a fresh year. Today I spent the day, literally, cleaning out my closets, doing laundry and generally getting my life back in order after a wild week in New Orleans.

Despite my lack of dedication to resolutions, I love reading about others and I’m thinking of creating a list of goals to accomplish this year with the possibility of sharing it at intervals along the way. This week’s {required reading} includes some great tips about blogging, fun looks back on holiday style and some resolutions on making 2013 your best year yet.

Missing NOLA.

As always, if you have any favorites from this past week that you’d like me to share, just post a link in the comments and I’ll add it!

* Grace from Stripes & Sequins kicked off the week right with her seriously helpful blogging tips and then had me pinning away with this necklace DIY.

* Ashley from SideSmile Style went to Maui and I was jealous.

* Took the wise words of Lynzy from Sparkling Footsteps to heart and plan to use them as inspiration in the New Year.

* Pretended I got to go home to Florida for Christmas and lived vicariously through Beth from Seersucker + Saddles’ South Florida fabulousness.

* Used Instagram and a love of New Orleans to meet a new blogging bud in Kaitlin from Secretive Style. Love her style.

* Oh Bethenny {B Soup}, you and your party dresses are O So Pretty!

* Received a super exciting email from Cathy from Poor Little It Girl and Jessica from My Style Vita about the launch of Southern Blog Society. Seriously, this is going to be awesome. Launches Monday… stay tuned!
