Daniel Smith makes the best paint and ink I've ever used. They also have an entire line of "Luminescent" waters colors (here). I've used them for years and always enjoy getting their catalogs in the mail :)

How do I get my year-round fix? The Body Shop has an amazing Satsuma collection and I love their shower gels and scrubs!

To start things out here is my list:
1. Do Art! I went to school for fine art and since then I really haven't done a lot. I haven't exactly figured it out but I guess the creative juices just haven't been flowing. I unpacked my watercolors and started to paint again.
2. Use my gym membership. I am paying for it every single month...I see the deduction made to my account and I haven't been in a long time (yikes...the app tells me the last time I checked in was November 17, 2011...). I would also like to get back into distance running too so signing up for a few races this year is also a goal of mine.
3. Travel more. I am planning a couple of trips this year to visit friends all over. I'm excited to explore cities I've never been too! Also since traveling isn't exactly an inexpensive hobby, it will force me to be better at saving ;)
4. Live less plugged in. We live in a digital age these days. I know I'm glued to my iPhone, iPad, and computer but I really want to enjoy whats happening around me. How much time do we spend on Facebook these days? Its time to spend more time face to face!
Hope everyone is enjoying the new year so far!

I'm so happy for 2012 to start! I can't believe its already here! 2011 brought on a lot change, challenges, and excitement. I'm so excited to be living in a new city and making new friends (but keeping the old dear and close of course!).
The rain has once again started up. For some reason most of December was extremely dry so I suppose we were very overdo for some much needed rain.
Cheers to 2012!
