Deep thoughts

I hope you all had a fabulous Xmas, darlings! I enjoyed mine so much. Thank you for your lovely wishes and presents. I am blessed to have so many great friends. Now it's time to think about and prepare for the new year. What are your plans and resolutions?

My new year resolutions in bullet form.

{practice excessive gratitude.}
{be present.}
{slow down, breathe, stop trying so hard to prove myself.}
{spend introspective time determining goals for the next portion of my life.}
{explore spirituality.}
{live a healthy lifestyle.}
{work hard, rest hard.}


Oh, are you planning to have a party for New Year's Eve? What are you going to wear?

  5. I still haven't really decided on my new years outfit, it will probably end of being something muted down since I will just be spending it with my boyfriend. Though I'm dying to wear this adorable silver tunic!

  7. Oh I love your new year plans dear Susan...I think if we can manage the "be present" than the rest will come itself...

    I'm so excited about our little ladylike meeting :-) We have to have it somewhere stylish and chic...perhaps the Gerbeaud? LOL.

    I'm happy you had a great holiday season...and it's still not finished, so enjoy it.

    I will be in Budapest this Sunday...will mail you my phone number later this week.

    Keep in touch, cheers: Evi

  15. Great resolutions... yours actually seem pretty meaningful, as opposed to those old boring "quit smoking", "start working out" etc that you hear all the time. I never really come up with any resolutions myself, at least not specifically for a new year.

  37. Those are fantastic resolutions. I can definitely relate. I hope you have a wonderful New Year!

    I checked the size for the CK ballet flats and i think they are a European size 40. Do you think that would fit? They are leather, so they stretch with wear.
