2013 Year in Review and a Look Ahead at 2014

It’s hard to believe that 2014 is already here!

I love the beginning of a brand new year.  Even though January 1st is really no different than any other day of the year, there is just so much energy and excitement at the start of a new year and such a feeling of possibility.

Can you feel it?

Part of starting and planning a new year is reflecting back on the past year- what went really well, and what didn’t.   I always come up with a word or theme for each year.  It helps me prioritize and keeps me focused.

My word/theme for 2014 is Celebration but before I jump ahead to the year to come, let’s start with a look back at our 2013 year in review.  What a year it was!

Christmas Fashion Tip: Combining Red with Black for Sexy Sophistication

If you are looking to add some red to your wardrobe this holiday season, you’ll love this Christmas fashion tip.

Combine it with black to create a sexy and sassy look!

Try a bright samba red, or a deeper and darker tone if your complexion is washed out by bright shades (like mine is ;D).

Leather or lace will look just as sexy and sophisticated when paired with a red top, red boots, and a hint of red on those lips.
