January Tool Box*

This is a new post topic that I will start posting regularly at the beginning of every month. Feedback welcome!!!!

JANUARY – January (in Latin, Ianuarius) is named after Janus, the God of beginnings and transitions; the name has its beginnings in Roman mythology, coming from the Latin word for door (ianua) since January is the door to the year. (from Wikipedia)

Here are a few things Styled by KDG recommends you have in your tool box to accomplish you for the month of January.


The Love of My Life is always giving me a hard time about my reliance on Twitter for news and interesting nuggets. But this time I think I hit the gold mine.

In my meanderings through my twitter feed I discovered that Shauna Mackenzie, Founder of Best Kept Self has a word of the year. I LOVE this idea.

So, my word of the year: BEST.

  1. of the most excellent, effective, or desirable type or quality.
    – superlative of well1.

Last year, all of my passwords included the word “perfect”.  I felt intimidated every time I typed in the word.

Talk about setting an impossible standard.

But being “best” is attainable.

Being the best of me.


The one great thing about being cold?

Cashmere socks.

Oh yeah.

 Cashmere Socks – Soft Surroundings $24.95 (was $44.95)


There may not be as many soirees this month as there were during the holidays but that just means more time to read!

I thought I’d start with an ironic choice. 🙂

Amazon $7.48 paperback


Well, I do not get all my information from Twittter!

I have a hearty rotation of information sources. So hearty that I can loose hours keeping tabs on everything.

Enter circa.
