Let's Shop For The New Year!

Now that Christmas has come, serious sales are about to hit stores starting tomorrow and lasting until New Years. Here are some of the things I've been eyeing lately for the New Year...you know, to get those resolutions all ready and stuff! :)  


1. Perfume - (COACH POPPY FLOWER): I just smelled this at Kohl's the other day (well, I accidentally sprayed it in my face, got blinded for a second, and then really enjoyed the scent for the rest of my shopping experience), and fell in love). It has a touch of wet ivy grapefruit, mandarin, jasmine, amberwood, musk, sandalwood and more! It's a girly smell that means business and perfect for 2013! I mean, who wants to go to a business or client meeting smelling like you haven't showered in two days trying to finish a deadline...I sure don't!

2. New Lens - (Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro Telephoto Zoom Lens): I've been testing out some of my brother's lenses during this break, and I'm in love. My Canon T2I needs some lens lovin' for the new year so I can start taking some awesome-r pics for my blog and business. Other than a 50mm lens that I've been eyeing, this is next on my list.

3. Inspirational Book - (Creative, Inc.: The Ultimate Guide to Running a Successful Freelance Business): From freelancing pros Meg Mateo Ilasco and Joy Deangdeelert Cho, this book is a must for my collection! I'm in the midst of starting my own freelance marketing and design business, so this book will be the perfect jumpstart to my new career move. They explain "everything from creating a standout portfolio to navigating the legal issues of starting a business."

4. Motivation To Work Out! - (ALTERNATIVE Drawstring Yoga Pants): I'm going to dedicate this new year to getting healthier and being more in shape. (Yah, yah that's what everyone says!). As an avid sports player, I've already signed up for two indoor soccer leagues and one indoor kickball league via Philadelphia Sports Network for this winter season! These yoga pants would be great motivation for me to start doing some more Bikram Yoga, which is by far the best yoga I've ever done. I end up feeling less stressed, clear in my mind, more focuses, healthier, and just an overall endorphin high. Trust me, try Bikram Yoga!
