Happy New Year and a Quick Update

First off - Happy New Year, everyone! What a joyous occasion it is to spend the new year (especially since it's a weekend!) with family and loved ones. 2010 had its ups and downs, but 2011 allows us to start anew; perhaps vanity sizing may wane or petite sizing may flourish? A [petite] woman can only dream. ;) More posts to come, especially since my workplace is less than a mile away from our local mall!

I had the pleasure of meeting a couple bloggers this past week - all of whom I might add are as "chibi" as I am. In addition to our age-guessing, height comparisons, and lingerie discussions, talking to these lovely ladies at eye-level made me feel like I was of "average" or "normal" stature. For once in my life, I didn't have to look up at adults, or look down at "shorter" children. I felt so confident and comfortable around such a beautiful group of women. Many thanks to everyone in the petite community for inspiring me to create a blog. Many of you may have already visited their blogs regarding our meetup, but here it is again!

As for my new years resolutions, I've come up with a few:
  • I hope to fully transform my wardrobe by investing in comfortable clothes and shoes as well as classic pieces to coordinate. This requires more saving!
  • Exercise daily - rain or shine, I will prevail! No more excuses!
  • Fix my sleeping schedule - Too many naps and not enough nightly shut-eye (6-8 consecutive hours of sleep).

What are your new years resolutions? And let me conclude this post with:
"With our wardrobes combined, we can take over the [petite] fashion industry/world!"


  1. As I've already commented on Jean's and Kelly's posts, you ladies are beautiful. I love your hair! : )

    Good luck with your resolutions! They're quite similar to actually, good luck to both of us. haha Must get rid of my eye bags.

  2. I love your quote! :) And I agree with TLDP, all of you ladies are so beautiful!

  3. It was so great to meet you last week! Thanks for coming, and I hope we get to do it again soon!

    Great quote! =)

  4. When you come to Toronto, let me know! We can do our own petite meet-up. ; ) The H&M you visited was probably at the Eaton Centre. That's the biggest one in Toronto, I think.

    Happy new year! :D

    P.S. Did you know you have word verification on?

  5. I need to sleep more too! =)

    What a fun meet up! here's to another year of blogging!


    Happy, Happy New Year!


  6. It was so fun meeting up with you and I love your stories! You have some great NYR going on and I hope you keep up with them. I have very similar ones as well and I'm looking forward to what you'll be writing for this blog! =)

  7. hi christina! thanks for stopping by my blog. i wished i could have joined you beautiful ladies at the SD meet up!

    in regards your questions:
    the jacket is from BR and it's pretty old;
    the curls are created using a curling iron (i believe the barrel size is either 3/4" inch or 1" inch)

    hope that helps ;)
