I rang in the New Year with dangerously high heels, electrifying funky music, wonderful friends, and (as I do) some sensational vegan comfort food.

A few snapshots from the last night of 2012 and into the morning of 2013:

Keepsake dress, My Delicious Jones pumps and Zoya Monka nail polish

Organic Prosecco and donuts from Babycakes.

The sinfully delectable (and festive) nachos from Real Food Daily for dinner.

Sweet jams from Vintage Trouble at The Roxy. #killingit

Dinner part deux: banana pancakes (I had them add chocolate chips - duh) from Swingers. The detox starts tomorrow...

Throughout the evening of festivities (and noshing with a vengeance), we took some time to discuss our wishes for the new year. Earlier in the day, my yoga instructor had asked us to reflect on our intentions (she felt "resolutions" carried a harsher connotation). As I shared with my friends, here are my mantras for 2013:
  • Fear and procrastination are not an option.
  • Honor and explore creative impulse.
  • Ere on the side of simplicity.
  • Commit time to travel, as well as the study of language and music.
  • Write at least one line everyday.
  • Remember to breathe through pain, both literal and figurative.
  • Focus on health, health, health!
  • To meet this world with respect and compassion. 
Beautiful people. So very glad you're all in my life. 

Cheers to peace, health and compassion in the New Year!

xx So much love to all

  1. One of my yoga instructors also spoke of intentions before the holidays, and I love the idea of that, as opposed to resolutions. For me, a resolution is the end of something, or when you have already solved something, where as an intention is a current action.

    It looks like you had a blast on NYE! Your outfit is so cute!
