January 2014 Round-Up

I know it’s hard to believe, but January 2014 has now come to an end. WTF right? I could have sworn that I was just planning my New Year’s Eve outfit

My 2013 Round-Up was all about reminiscing on 2013, my favorite projects, collaborations & posts, and looking forward to another amazing year. This month I’ll check in on my New Year’s Resolutions, my annual bucket list, and set some new goals for myself for February. I’ll even be sharing some funny outtakes!

January 2014 Round-Up


I’m excited to share a few new projects with you during February including jewelry and beauty collaborations that I’m pretty sure you’re going to love. I’ll also be – Ta daaaa – Sharing some fun new videos. I’m nervous but excited, so please be kind!


In January I made a pretty significant change to my daily food routine in the form of cold pressed juices. While I didn’t do any cleanses or detox programs this month, I did start having delicious juices on a regular – Read daily – Basis.

I’m incredibly lucky that there are three juiceries within walking distance of my office and a cafe that keeps a fridge full of fresh pressed juices a block from my apartment. And while I wouldn’t say that I’m replacing meals with juice, I’ve added a green juice to my mornings 4-5 days a week.

  • Pros: Huge, immediate energy boost
  • Cons: Dear lord those things are expensive!

People have told me for YEARS to do yoga. And while I tried a few classes, I was never a convert. Until now. This month the stars aligned and I feel head-over-heels for this calming, mellow practice. That’s not to say I’m not sweating & getting a great workout, but I do love the relaxing aspects of yoga as well.

New February 2014 Goals


Tis the season for Fashion!

From Fashion Week’s in San Francisco, Sacramento, and New York to launch parties, shopping events, and store openings – February is going to be pretty fabulous. Be sure to keep up with my shenanigans on Instagram!


This Spring is going to be hectic and packed to the brim with events, trips, and fun weekends so my food goal for February is going to be to stay on track with healthy, clean eating while I’m traveling. That means bringing snacks while I’m on trips and researching healthy restaurants and grocery shopping options in advance to avoid last-minute I’m-so-hungry-I’m-going-to-die bad for me binges.

One of my favorite ways to explore cities is by walking,and now that my back is healing I’m going to try adding some jogging to those adventures this month. Look out New York, I’ll be tripping down your side walks in no time!

2014 Bucket List:

  1. Try a new class or type of physical activity every month – Yoga was my new activity for January. And while I did get myself a one year membership, I’m definitely going to be trying something new & exciting in February
  2. Submit a piece of my writer to a publisher – I’ve got my eye on this goal in a BIG WAY & spent January rereading old pieces & deciding what’s worth updating. February will likely bring more of the same.
  3. Travel – I’m heading to New York in February and already have a fabulous trip to New Orleans planned for March.
  4. Broaden my educational horizons – I’ve been evaluating various programs and have my eye on a nutrition-related course. Stay tuned for more!
  5. Be a good friend – Staying in touch is hard for me but I’ve already scheduled two friend trips, sent some snail mail, and started prepping for a big family party this Spring.

How was YOUR January?
