I don’t really do New Year’s resolutions, but I do like the idea of choosing one little word to focus on for the year. Or thinking of resolutions like this. What about you? How are you kicking off 2014? However you think about new beginnings, let me wish you all the best!

Good luck charms by Raphael Kirchner via Ginny’s Pinterest.

Pie-shaped strudel.

Cork keepsakes.

Mapping emotions on the body (love makes us feel warm all over!).

This down-the-rabbit-hole necklace would be darling for a flower girl.

How gorgeous are these saffron pears?

There’s something about this Donna Karan evening gown

Most wonderfully whimsical bookstore front ever.

Five minute mug cakes.

What should you read next?

Spiced persimmon overnight oats sound like a nice way to wake up.

Happy, happy New Year!

For a second there I was feeling like I was on top of things in terms of getting ready for Christmas, but all of a sudden the race is on to get everything done in time. I’d like to say it’s because I have a baby, but I’m pretty sure this happens to me every year. I also do this fun thing where I start second guessing myself on all the gifts purchases I managed to make in a timely manner, and wondering if I should just return everything and start all over. You know, just to keep things interesting. Anyway, if you need a moment to recharge during this holiday season, here are some links for you to enjoy…

Jewelry for your shoes.

These Anchorman pencils would make for hilarious stocking stuffers.

Have a happy, happy weekend!
