Happy New Year!
I'm not very good at resolutions. If you asked me what I wrote about on January first last year I don't think I could tell you. This year, if I were to resolve to do anything, it would be to find more confidence in myself and to stop allowing my life to be ruled by fear. While it's one thing to acknowledge the problem, it's another to actually do something about it. Additionally, I need to find a new job, and also shop less (obliviously). What are you looking forward to in 2019?

  1. You look really amazing and have a beautiful fashion sense. 2018 was an amazing year and 2019 will be one if the best years for us.. Happy new year dear.

  2. Happy New Year!! And I am working on that on myself as well! So for 2019, I am looking forward to where my confidence will take me. Wishing you all the best in the new year!


  3. Happy New Year! Your hair is to die for, so instead of focusing on your pictures I just looked at your hair like: I want it! I am also working on fighting my fears and simply going further more fiercly, so good luck to both of us and I hope this year will be our time to say no to fear.

  4. I love the warm holiday glow of these photos - it makes it feel like the good parts of the holidays can go on, even though it's now officially January and we're back to reality. Happy New Year! I hope this will be a wonderful year for you, and will bring about some of the personal growth that you've been wanting to achieve. I am, of course, looking forward to seeing what you'll wear in 2019 ;)

  5. I agree, I need more confidence in life too. I think for 2019 I need to focus more on taking care of the house and keeping it in tip top shape.

  6. I'm hoping 2019 will be a year of me being just a little, teensy bit less anxious as a person. I'm such a control freak about so many things to the point that I get stressed out and anxious anytime anything remotely unexpected arises and I really, really don't want to inculcate that in Eleanor. So, at the very least, 2019 will be the year I privately freak out over things being a closed door, as opposed to in my living room with Eleanor watching. Baby steps and all.... And, of course, I'm excited to see where 2019 takes you, and what you wear along the way.

  9. You know I don't do resolutions.
    I have a lot on my plate right now, so I am totally clueless on where to begin, but I can assure you I never stop.
    Whenever I take a risk I ask myself what's the super worst that can happen - most of the time if the answer does not imply me dying - I go for it. But I always try!!!
    You go Lydia ! You look lovely in that outfit. Hugs

  10. Happy new year! I love the leopard print coat, an the gold tassel on your bag! I got a cute tassel bag charm for Christmas and I love it! :)

    My only resolution this year is to spend less than I did last year on fashion, we shall see how I go with that (I've already picked up a few things in the post Christmas sales, oops!)

    Hope that your 2019 is off to a great start and you are excited for the year to come :)
