January Babes

Did y’all have an amazing beginning to 2015?! I rang in the new year downtown with new friends and family and just had a ball. It was awesome and exhausting, like any great night should be. But seriously, my legs are sore from dancing so much! It was great.

2015 starts my year of many challenges so let’s dive in with January’s…

No clothes shopping!

This may sound like not a big deal to a lot of you out there and for that I’m impressed/jealous/also sort of sad for you. In the world that I live in – or in my head, I suppose – I like to look good. It makes me feel good. Look good, feel good, right?! And I like to feel like I look good. And for me that means wearing certain clothes. Now I don’t want you to think that means I’m out dropping thousands (or hundreds, if it’s vintage I suppose) on some Balmain piece of art. [That would be lovely, don’t get me wrong.] That’s not the reality I live in at this point in life – I’m still confused about why I wasn’t born with an unlimited trust fund or why I haven’t won the lottery somehow haha. I’m all about finding a gem at Forever 21 that just makes me feel cool.

Well that will not be what happens in January this year. January will be a month of getting creative and remixing my old favorites. I’m actually pretty good at this already. I can get one new piece and mix it with something I’ve had since 2006 and it all just somehow works. I also sort of have a gift of finding a good deal. If I’m on the hunt for a certain piece, be it a purse or boots or whatever, and I know exactly what I’m looking for…I could end up saving a ton, just by shopping during a huge sale or using one of those discount sites. But…I’m sure that in my mind I probably use that as an excuse to do more shopping in the long run… “Oh, this was only $75 so really it doesn’t really count…” or “Oh I bought three shirts but they’re all from Forever 21 sale rack so it really hardly counts…”

It is based on all this that January is my no-clothes-shopping-challenge-month. I think that I can do it. My first step at making it easier is going to be blindly deleting all of my junk email I get about this sale or that sale. [I get SO much of that email crap…and it sucks me in!] Well not in January 2015! Wish me luck 🙂

Like I mentioned before, this weekend we’re moving into a new place! It’ll be bigger and I can’t wait to have a little more room for our crazy clan! Wish us luck and if I disappear for a few days, you know why 😉

Happy 2015 & have a great weekend!
