Hi everyone! It's been a few weeks since I last posted because the weather has been unbearably cold in New York. But I am thrilled to see that I now have over 500 followers on Stylized Luxe, and I wanted to thank every one of my new blogger friends! Perhaps one day I'll set up a giveaway, but for now, here are 5 fun facts about me.


Forest Accents

Hi everyone, I hope you had a great week! Six years ago I met my love through my best friend and her boyfriend. The four of us have enjoyed many adventures togetherfrom prom in high school, to the fateful Boston trip that established Doug and I as a couple, to a recent vacation to Jamaica. Relationships like these decorate my life with genuine bliss. This week we drove to D.C. to visit Moses (who now lives and works there). Here are some snapshots of my forest green ensemble take at the WWII Memorial: 



Happy 2013 everyone! I hope you all had a festive and fun holiday season. 

With every New Year, we often start off with resolutions — whether it's a small change, like keeping a tidier room, or a lifestyle transformation, like adopting a healthier diet/exercise routine. In 2009, I committed to a resolution that truly changed my perspective: maximizing potential. When I hit an academic low during my sophomore year in college, I initially blamed everything but myself. I complained about being sleep deprived, having too many social activities and lacking time to complete the difficult coursework. I knew I had the ability to achieve top grades, but felt inhibited by external factors (time, energy, etc). Consequently, I challenged myself to control factors that were within my power  such as having healthy sleeping habits and ending my procrastination — to discover my potential. In short, I never received a B" after 2009.
