Happy New Year from Covet & Acquire (with video)

2013 has been a bit of a milestone year for Covet and Acquire. 

When I started this blog back in July 2011, I set out to chronicle my personal style evolution -- and share it with anyone who cared to tune in. And let's just say ... it took a while to generate interest. 

In fact, it wasn't until this year that I felt that my message --- Real girl, Real body, Real budget -- began to resonate with the style-blog-reading set. 

Benchmarks I've been striving for, such as an increase in traffic (still growing ...) and brand recognition (finally!), to getting the opportunity to attend the annual Lucky Fashion and Beauty Bloggers Conference in New York City (OMG!), have finally come to fruition after endless hours of photo taking, editing and nonstop social media. 

2013 has afforded me some amazing opportunities -- ones that I can't wait to build on in the next 12 months and beyond. To say I'm grateful/nervous/excited about what the future holds for my blog and I would definitely be an understatement. 

So, here's to 2014 and never giving up. May the next year bring us all happiness, good fashion fortune and even more style opportunities in which to sparkle and shine on Covet and Acquire.

Check out my video recap of 2013:

Congats on a very successful year!!! I can't wait to see where 2014 takes you! I'm so excited for you, I'm sure the conference will be a lot of fun and a great experience. I can't wait to hear all about it!

I for one am glad I found your blog, I love your sense of style and lust after your purse collection too :)
But it's also so nice to be able to connect with like minded fashionable people and bloggers :)
Like you I'm striving to increase my traffic, and to get brand recognition. To be honest sometimes it feels hard and I marvel at others who make it seem so easy. lol

All the best to you in the New Year :)
xo, Jackie

Thank you so much, Jackie! I'm not going to lie, there have been times when I've been super discouraged and wanted to shut it all down, but I'm glad that I've kept working at it.

I feel so lucky to have readers (and amazing fellow bloggers!) like you to share in the successes of our blogs. It's so much fun to see.

Happy New Year. May your 2014 be just as amazing as your style!
