Happy New Year! I am so excited to be writing my first post for 2013. This year will mark six years of AphroChic, and we have so much to celebrate in year six. Our book comes out this Fall; we’re working away on a bunch of new home decor products; and new collaborations with some of our favorite folks in the world of design are in the works.
It’s time to party, and I could not think of anything better for the first post of the year than to share this GQ feature with Solange Knowles, New Party Rules 2013.
So, what are the new rules for 2013? There are none! Now 13 years into the 21st Century, this year is all about bucking tradition, being comfortable in your own skin, and embracing the unique things you bring to this world.
This year it’s time to dream big. If there are things you’ve been thinking of that have been gnawing at you, that you’ve wanted to try and haven’t for some reason, this is the year to reach for the stars. I just downloaded an app called Everest on my iPhone. It’s perfect for writing down your dreams, the steps you’re going to take to achieve them, and you can even share your list with friends and family to inspire others as well.
Let’s party like it’s 2013 – throw out the rule book, dream big, and live it up this year!
