Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid

I get so excited every year to find out which color Pantone is going to choose. The "it" color for 2014 is Radiant Orchid. Once reserved for garden parties and ladies who lunch, the hue is back and better than ever, showing up in fresh silhouettes and styles for spring.

The key to keeping this color stylish and not saccharine is to choose pieces that have a modern edge to them. Skip the frills and ruffles and go for something streamlined. 

I'm also loving the color from head to toe. It's the perfect color for a vacation (or staycation) mani/pedi because it pops without being too overbearing. It's soft and feminine on the lips, perfect with a dramatic eye.

My New Year's Resolutions

Every year I set a few new year's goals that I plan to stick with. This year, I decided to choose resolutions that meant something to me and would pave the way for a healthier mind, body, and soul. 

Resolution #1: I'm a Bar Method regular and go about 4x/week, but I'm going to consistently mix in other fun and effective workouts from the Tone It Up girls, Karena and Katrina. I'll also stay motivated by treating myself to cute workout gear. 

Resolution #2: I've always been an avid reader, but it wasn't until a dear friend of mine announced that she planned on reading 100 books by 2015. Since she chose me to hold her accountable, I thought it would be fun to join her. 




Resolution #3: I resolve to always take off my makeup before bed (even when I'm out late) by keeping nourishing wipes on my nightstand. I will also be using sunscreen everyday, not just when it's sunny out. This is the only skin I've got, so I need to make sure it stays healthy.

Resolution #4: I work out regularly, I eat a clean diet, but I know that I don't always drink enough water. I bought this awesome water bottle to infuse my H20 with fruit, mint etc. and I can't get enough. Cheers!

What resolutions have you made for 2014?
