2013 is well under way and Philadelphia continues to inspire me to add more color to my life. That's right, Resolution Color continues.My latest inspiration was the Mummers Parade on New Year's Day. It traces back to the 17th-century Swedish holiday tradition of visiting neighbors' houses while singing, dancing, making noise and drinking. (Did you know the Swedes were the first settlers of Philadelphia?) This later evolved into masquerades and parades.And I'm pretty sure the big event just wouldn't be the same in black and gray. Check it out!It is equal parts strange and amazing. Much like the city of Philadelphia, I suppose!Tell me, what is your New Year's resolution? And what is inspiring you to keep it up?
HAPPY 2013 to you all! I hope everyone had an enjoyable New Year's Eve. For me, spending time with some good friends while rocking these awesome mini trucker party hats by San Francisco design company, GAMAGO, made my transition into the new year pretty memorable. I highly recommend them if you want to add a touch of creativity, and silly, to any party.And did you know that 2013 is the year of the black water snake? According to astrology, with it will come unexpected changes and challenges. But what year doesn't bring these things, right? So get out there and do what you do. 2013 is our year!Tell me, was there anything unique that made your New Year's Eve especially memorable?
