Starting off 2013 with a new series that will be posted every Friday. Hope you like it! Since I'm constantly  browsing blogs, websites and basically anything & everything on the web, I've decided to round-up my top finds and share them each week. Let's start with a few links that are pretty inspiration to start the new year on a stylish note.
1. Fund the Life of Your Dreams - Confession: I hate math, but I love shopping. And it's never been a good combination for my bank account. Luckily, I have a boy with an accounting background that helps keep my finances straight. At the same time, I'd like to get better at budgeting on my own without having to constantly ask for help. I read this finance article on The Everygirl and am planning to take a lot of advice from it. If you need the extra motivation like me, fill out this chart to get a better understanding of your spending habits vs. income. 

2. Ring My Bell - I may be way late to the game with my recent obsession with the show Revenge, but I don't care. It's just so good. So, it may not be a surprise that I'm also late to realize that the show's always stylish British star, Ashley Madekwe also happens to have an amazing fashion blog. If you are also a fan of the show and super stylish, yet wearable outfits, check it out here

3. Healthy Winter Smoothies -  It's true, I love a good smoothie. However, it's not a treat I find myself 
enjoying in the winter very often. I mean, it's freezing out. Why would I drink something cold? But, getting into my New Year's resolution to live healthy, I couldn't help but get a bit excited when I unexpectedly stumbled across a few tasty winter smoothie ideas for the winter on Apartment Therapy. I definitely could go for a Banana Spice smoothie for breakfast. Yum! See the full recipes here

4.  Bar Cart Basics - Who doesn't love a beautiful bar cart? It just seems to add something special to any kitchen or dining room. With a new house that still seems to have an endless list of things to fix, re-design and decorate, I keep getting a bit distracted by bar carts. Why? I'm not sure. But they are fun! And if you're also on the hunt for one of your own, there is no better place than Society Social. They are kind of like the creme de la creme of bar carts! Shop them here.

Happy Friday!
