New Year’s Resolutions: Nicki

Nicki Written by Nicki

Today I’d like to share with you a few things I’m excited about for 2014. Last year was a really big year for me, so I’m looking forward to seeing what I’m in store for in the coming year!

Brushing up on my French

I am determined to become fluent in at least one other language, and since I love France and already know some French, I’m starting there. I’ve found a great little place here called CouCou Brooklyn that  holds French classes and private lessons. They even do yoga classes in French! Je suis toujours un étudiant français.

Finding a *Good* Job

In case you haven’t heard, New York is expensive. I will be pounding the pavement, as they say, in search of a job that pays the bills and doesn’t make me want to pull my own hair out. That’s the American dream, isn’t it?

Devoting More Time to Art

This one is always on my list. My artistic endeavors always seem to fall by the wayside in order for pesky “responsibilities” to prevail. It’s a new year, a new life in a new city, and my wonderful husband gave me some new supplies for Christmas. Time to bust out those paint brushes!

Take Advantage of my New Home

I’ve been longing to live in New York City since I was 13 years old and came here on a middle school field trip. It’s the center of the universe, where the magic happens, what dreams are made of! It’s also home to lots of subway rats and now “Winter Storm Hurcules” (really?!), but I won’t let that stop me from enjoying all the amazing things the big apple has to offer. That means shows, concerts, picnics in central park, museums, food, and getting lost on the subway. Hey, sometimes getting “lost” helps you to find something awesome you would have never discovered otherwise!

Seven Minutes in Heaven!

Of course, this blog / shop is a big priority this year! I’m hoping that Jem and I can make something really great out of this collaboration. We hope to create some really interesting,  informative, and fun blog posts in the coming year and add some more fabulous vintage pieces to the shop for you guys to add to your wardrobes!

I’m so excited to see what 2014 will bring my way!
