Happy New Year's Eve!
I hope everybody has a safe and fun night tonight, no matter what you're doing. I'm about to get ready to go out to my mom's house for dinner/finger food/champagne celebrations but I just wanted to share a quite and relatively boring outfit of the day with you all from earlier today, haha! It's quite a simple, all-black outfit but I had gotten a few requests to show the jacket/scarf combination I'd been wearing recently on the vlogs. And then it occurred to me that I hardly ever remember to include my outerwear in my blog posts. This jacket was bought in Zara in Munich about 3 years ago. It's missing a button and too long in the sleeves but I still love it!
I'm going to change into something a little more festive (probably the LBD from yesterday's post!) but I'll share those pictures with you next time. I also wanted to share with you my New Year's Resolutions...here they are:
1. Cook a (healthy & nutritious) dinner 5 days a week.
Yes, you heard it here first folks...I am going to make the commitment to cooking dinner even though it's something I'm not so fond of. I tend to eat really healthy during the day but in the evenings both Jonathan & I get lazy and usually opt for something quick, either take-out, out of a jar, or ready-made which we all know is not so good for our health. So I have bookmarked a few "idiot-proof" healthy and quick recipes to follow for the New Year.
2. Try not to get so stressed out over every minute detail.
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I'm a complete perfectionist and often end up getting myself way too worked up and stressed out for the silliest reasons (like, for instance a tiny stain on the carpet or the house not being vacuumed when visitors come). I even feel like I spent a huge part of my wedding day worrying and stressing about other people...it was completely ridiculous. I remember at one point Jonathan had to take me aside and say "STOP thinking about everybody else!! Just enjoy your wedding day!" So I'm going to try and really work on this. I know I just need to relax more, enjoy life and focus what's really important.
3. Keep active every day.
I'm not a gym bunny, or a sporty person...I don't think I ever will be. However I love to walk and keep active, in fact I think it's a very important part of daily life. I'm usually pretty good at it (having two dogs helps!) but this year I want to make an effort to do something active every day, whether that's taking Albi & Sina for a 30 minute walk or an hour long hike...it doesn't matter. Walking clears my head and makes me feel more relaxed so I definitely want to keep it a part of my daily routine!
4. Make a baby...
...say what?! Hahaha I know you're probably all thinking "huh?!" and at first I was going to keep this one private BUT then I realised you know what, I may as well be honest with you guys. This is not a spur of the moment decision, it's something that Jonathan and I have been thinking about since we got married. So yes, a little Saccone-Joly would be a nice addition to our family in 2012, but no promises or anything -- I will leave everything else up to fate!
