Wooohoooo! We've survived the first week of 2013. Who's ready for the weekend? I'm gearing up for another trek into the city to hopefully settle into my studio for good. Eeek! Here's what I've been up to this week:
- Absolutely blown away by the number of people who have been inspired to write their own 101 in 1001 lists. If you have one, please tweet me the link so I can add you to #2 on my list!

- Assembled furniture in my new studio! Why didn't anyone tell me that moving is such a process?!

- Booked my flight for Alt Summit. I can't believe it's less than three weeks away! I'm already getting butterflies about my panel :)

- Contemplated countless combinations of Society Social furniture for my new abode. I can't wait to show you what I wind up with!

- Couldn't stop wearing my favorite Christmas present. Find it on sale right here!

- Created a beverages board on Pinterest. Cheers!

- Delighted in new posts on The Neo-Traditionalist! Katie's blog is an all-time favorite.

- Discovered the perfect pair of crystal studs for under $100.

- Made not one but two trips to Ikea. I'm obsessed with my new table!

What was the highlight of your week? Do tell and have a marvelous weekend! xx

I loved this slideshow of author Stephanie LaCava's favorite New York haunts. I totally nodded my head when she said, "I sort of always wear the same things, though in different ways." Isn't that the definition of classic style?! Some of her outfits were a little edgier than my go-to looks but this one stopped me in my tracks:

Comfy sweater for winter warmth? Check. Skinny jeans and killer heels? Check, check. But it's the classic tote that gets me. Preppy can be completely modern and this look is proof. Just don't be surprised when you see me in ten different versions of it these next few months ;)

Do pardon the light activity around these parts this week as I move into my own little piece of New York! I've been saving my pennies and counting down the days for quite some time — it's hard to believe that it's actually happening! Yesterday my dad and boyfriend got most of the big pieces in place, which means my mom and I can get to the fun part: decorating! It's teeny tiny — 375 square feet, eek! — but I'm smitten with the natural light and eager to create a space that works for me, my business, and my puppy :) I have lots of fun projects I'm planning to tackle and I can't wait to share them all with you! And in the meantime, if you have any brilliant tips for making moving a little less stressful, I'm all ears...
