February Round-Up

Raise your hand if you cannot believe that February is over.

Me either.

When my calendar reminder to write my monthly round-up post popped up I had to check the calendar to be sure. Intellectually I knew what the date was, obviously I date things at work, but I didn’t quite have a handle on the fact that the 28th meant the month was almost over. Le Sigh.

Overall Goals For 2013:

  • Stay on top of social media – Check out my recent Where To Find What post to see how the various social media platforms are being utilized for MCLV – You can find different topics & pictures on each. 🙂 And stay tuned for a post on my recent collaboration with LookMazing.
  • Writing, Writing, Writing – I’m joining a fun online styling site and will be sharing details and some of my pieces as soon as I can. I’ll also be contributing a weekly health & fitness post to the Cap City Strength & Conditioning blog.
  • Expansion & Growth – I’m officially expanding my services to include styling, wardrobe consulting, and closet organizing. Check out the Advertising, Collaborations & Styling Services page above for more information.
  • Be Positive – 2013 is beginning to look like the poster child for over booking. Between taking on more work styling & writing and my boyfriend opening a gym, I’m spread pretty thin. Approaching my days with positivity and excitement instead of dread has been key for keeping myself motivated and inspired.

February Goals {From January Round-Up}:

Fashion:

New York was amazing and despite the extremity-losing cold I had an amazing time {IFBCON Celebrity Sightings & Industry Insight} and have been completely awash in nonstop inspiration since I returned. From meeting new bloggers to getting to hear my favorite industry insiders speak to seeing the streets of New York City filled with amazing fashion – February has been one of my favorite months in recent years.

Food:

Smoothies & sweet potatoes have been February staples, both great for at-work consumption and easy-to-make nighttime meals. And during my NYC adventures and weekends away I’ve been traveling with bags of Trader Joe’s trail mix and Larabars galore.

Fitness:

I’m thrilled to say I’ve been hitting the gym at least 5 days a week very consistently. My morning Instagram shot to help inspire my fabulous readers to get to gym has been a HUGE motivator for me!

March Goals:

Fashion:

Time to break out the colors! As Spring starts arriving in San Francisco I’ll be playing up prints, florals, and fun colors. Stay tuned for some MCLV Style posts in the coming weeks while I take the pieces I’ve been hoarding out of the back of my closet! 🙂 On the docket – My new Aqua floral shorts suit, patterned Capri pants, and flowy Piperlime blazer.

Food & Fitness:

I’ll be out-of-town most weekends this Spring so staying on top of my physical therapy, workouts, and eating a healthy, consistent diet during the week is especially important as my weekends aren’t going to be as structured as I would like. Sundays will be dedicated to grocery shopping and cooking during March and I’ll put a lot of effort into making my meals ahead of time in order to make my evenings run more smoothly.

What are you most looking forward to in March?
