happy new year(make your own banner here)

Happy new year friends!!!!! I hope you all rang in the New Year in a way that made you happy and excited about 2013!

To start off 2013 I thought I it would be nice to share some of my favorites of 2012. So please enjoy a little look back.


The Difference a Day Makes

I don’t really get political on made-to-travel, but it was really impossible for me not to share my marvel on the huge political response to the outcry from the web on SOPA. Just shows people speaking together can make a resounding difference.



I love me the Knicks 🙂 and Jeremy Lin was the phenom underdog story that had all eyes on my team! Sadly he’s no longer a Knick, but his story was one of my favorites of 2012.



 Smile File-Aimee Mullins

The beauty that is Aimee Mullins’ story was a joy to share. I hope you all got to read it because it’s an inspiration…listen to her Moth story and TED Talk also! Mullins is a wonder :).


Guest post: BIY (Bootleg it Yourself) Nail Dotting Tool

April I have to say is a haaaaard month for me to choose. I had such amazing guests while I was away! Buuuuut I have to give it to my home slice Vicky for creating such a hilarious, awesome, and useful DIY…oh wait! I mean BIY (bootleg it yourself!)…nail dotting tool.


Smile File: The Must Have Accessory

Ahhh! This little cartoon totally always makes me smile! This roundup is a great excuse to share it again :).


 What I Wore-I’m a Winner!

I was coveting this dress super hardcore! Thank you social media! The kind folks at SOKO gave me a tip to keep checking and voilá I’m now a proud owner of this beautiful dress by ASOS Africa.


Ha! I Made It!-DIY Lace Cutout Blouse

Seriously I want to do more with DIYS!! I love them and I know you love them too! This random thought of adding lace to my button down turned out so great.

Humans of New York:The Crowd Has a Face

I LOVE Humans of New York, both the site and literally the humans of New York :). And in case you didn’t hear what Brandon Scott and Tumblr did for victims of Sandy check THIS. Wonderful.

Sharing some photos from this beautiful site brought a big smile to my face. The photos are so kind and nuanced with their commentary. Hope you guys enjoyed it too!


 Fall Into Good Habits: Eat Your Veggies!

The first installment of Fall Into Good Habits!!! I actually really love this series and am planning to take it on past fall. Life is really a series of habit building and I love sharing tid bits that have helped me and wisdom that I really admire and aspire to follow.

The first installment of Fall Into Good Habits was Eat Your Veggies with one of my internet favorites Jenn of Peas and Crayons. LOVE HER, she made this post sparkle :).


Good Will NY/NJ Halloween Challenge

Well, I was thrilled that Goodwill NY/NJ asked me to be a part of their Halloween Challenge. I love Halloween and I love love love Goodwill. Friends, you don’t know how much wonderful work they do…it’s people life changing work and anything I can do to support them makes me happy.

Also you’ll get to see my costume :).Goodwill NYNJ Halloween


 Fall Into Good Habits: Be Happy

These simple simple steps to being happy from the Happiness Manifesto were so thrilling to me because they are so accessible and really things everyone can implement in their life.

    I love this idea for an end of the year post! I’m totally stealing it from you next year. I had missed that lace blouse DIY, but I love it! You’re so crafty. 🙂

    Oh my gosh, that lace blouse was one of my favorite things. Yes please, more DIYs! Everything you picked out for this round-up is a perfect reminder of why your blog is not only one of the most relevant to me, but also just plain one of my favorites. You bring an element of enlightenment to fashion and lifestyle that’s so refreshing. I always know you’ll be sharing something that will make me feel liberated and happy. Hopefully that makes sense to you; it’s kind of hard to put it into words, but it’s genuinely something that you/made-to-travel alone bring into my life, and I love it. (:

    Great roundup of your year J. I like that it’s far different from the usual end of the year posts. I decided not to do one for 2012, but I am so happy and welcomed 2013 with opened and less busy arms, hopefully. 🙂 Hope the new year is treating you great so far dear. xo/M
