Hi everyone! Hope 2012 is treating you well (or at least better than 2011, my goodness). Here are some things I'm liking right now, and think you might too:
- First, I broke down & bought the Old Navy polka dot sweater that's been featured all over blogs & Pinterest. I haven't received it yet, but I'll post a mini-review when it arrives. So cute.
UPDATE: I returned the sweater. It's cute in person, and good quality for Old Navy, but the print makes you look significantly wider/bigger up top. I'm short & curvy, so this just wasn't the best look for me. Two bloggers who make it look good, though: Mix & Match Fashion & Petite Little Girl.
- Second, I recently discovered moka pot coffee, aka "espresso for poor people." Of course, it's not real espresso, but it's still intense and good. I'm using a Bialetti 3-cup moka pot & LavAzza Qualità Oro ground coffee.
- Finally, I'm currently setting up self-hosted Wordpress sites for several clients. In doing so, I've realized that I'm ready to transfer my blogs to Wordpress. Typepad has been great all these years, but I need something more customizable & functional. I want jQuery slideshows and responsive site design like everybody else!
Switching services isn't the easiest process, though, and most of my blogging energy & time over the next two months will be spent on behind-the-scenes stuff. I will post once a week on each blog, and hope to finish migrating both blogs by mid-March. Also, I will be cleaning up old content as I go, probably deleting or at least combining many of the pre-2009 postings. So much of that content was shopping-related, and has little to no value now (dead links, unavailable products, etc.).
What are you guys currently enjoying?
