Blog Wishes for the New Year

What do I want for Glitterary Girl in 2013? More of these shirts.

Blouse and Bracelets: Forever 21 (San Francisco)
Pants: Uniqlo (San Francisco)
Boots: Call it Spring (Halifax)
Faux Fur Collar: H&M (Dartmouth)
Earrings: Gap Factory Outlet (Las Vegas)
Rings: Gifts

Just a dusting of the white stuff. These photos were taken on Christmas Eve.

My ideals for Glitterary Girl this year:

Make more connections
I'll continue to reach out to other bloggers who inspire me and perhaps do some collaborations, host guest posts, and maybe actually connect with the fashion blogging community that exists in my little corner of the world.

Add some polish - and not just on the nails.
I want my blog to be more user friendly and easy to navigate. I got some wonderful advice a few months ago from av at longdistanceloving (who I'm also linking up with today for My Friday's Fancies) but haven't taken the time to incorporate a lot of the great suggestions she made.

Bring the literary part back.
I originally intended for this blog to be just as much about my writing as it was about my life and style. Somehow, the clothes took over... Once a week, I'll aim to get a bit more wordy with my posts. For those of you who are wondering, there is nothing to report on in terms of my novel going anywhere. That's what happens when you don't submit anything to agents for... oh.... six months or so. Once I get my fitness back on track, I plan on giving the book another push.

I've added my Instagram link (username: jennifermerlin14) to my social networking over in the right sidebar. My apologies to anyone following me on Pinterest - I've fallen out of love with it at the moment.

I am drinking green tea and catching up on my Jenn posts! Love what you've put down here; relationships in the blogging world are so huge and I am also trying to double my efforts to make connections with people that inspire me. Shoot me an email if you want to collaborate on anything this year; I love tossing around ideas!!
