New Year Reflections and Resolutions

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2014!

I started this blog in May 2013 in an effort to make myself dress better, to style my closet smarter, and to share my tips on getting great deals and frugal fashion finds. As I say, just because I'm broke doesn't mean I have to look like it! I want to show how an average woman on a really tight budget can still look chic and stylish, which I hope will inspire others to rock their closets as well.

My new year's resolutions?

1. Devote more time to blogging. I have been haphazard and I want to get on a regular schedule with it.

2. Learn how to take better pictures. I am looking to invest in a tripod and remote this year and I want to learn more photography tips because that can make or break a fashion blog.

3. Lose 10-15 pounds. This is more of a personal goal than a blog goal, but more confidence and better fitting clothes will benefit the blog as well. I bought myself a Groupon to Old Navy/Banana Republic/Gap that I am using as an incentive so I can get myself some sale rack goodies when I lose a few pounds. :)

4. I have some plans for new components on the blog. Namely, I want to start a monthly series detailing what I got for my shopping  budget that month. I also am planning some giveaways and reviews.

Do you have any particular things that you want me to feature or write about? Please send your questions or suggestions to I would love to hear them!


  1. Taking better photos is one of my resolutions as well. Since we are both in BR we may have to get together one day and take each other photos! Yayy for teamwork! haha

  2. Happy New Year Leslie! I think that's a great idea!
