Happy New Year—Being My Best Self


It’s finally here—2013! Happy new year blog readers and friends!!

I’m really excited to start on the next journey of my life. Throughout this year, I’ll be sharing my tips for organizing your and life, and focusing on new adventures and exciting experiences. I have so many ideas and can’t wait to get started.

I will be focusing on saving money and financial security, now that I am back in . Most of my future plans are either financial or social in nature. I’ll be exploring the city and surrounding areas more, rather than travelling overseas or outside the country, as I have in past years. I’ll also be trying new adventures as part of my explorations in the Vancouver area. There are a lot of things that I’ve always wanted to try —nothing bad, just taking lessons in things I’m interested in, and that sort of thing.

There are a few blog conferences that I would love to attend, assuming I am able to save enough money for that purpose before then. If I can’t attend any outside the city, there are a few local ones that would still be interesting and beneficial. I’ve had some amazing opportunities to attend events and work with sponsors in 2012, since I moved back to Vancouver. I also had some great opportunities to work with non-profits, like Habitat for Humanity. I am looking forward to more store openings, press events and similar opportunities this year.

I am really passionate about home décor and design, and plan on sharing some store tours and home tours with you, in the coming months. If you have a store you’d like me to tour, please contact me. Also, if you have rooms in your home, before/after photos or similar, I’d be pleased to feature you and your home on Being Tazim.

I’d love to hear about your and plans for the new year. If you’ve written a blog post, please share it in the comments.

  1. Great goals. I need to set some but right now I am just setting a goal to get through March when my daughter has her Quincenara.

  2. Happy new year to you!

  4. Happy New Year, Tazim! I'm also saving and hoping to attend at least one blog conference in the new year. Maybe I'll see you there? :)

    • Thanks Tree – Happy New YEar to you as well! Which conference(s) do you think you might attend? I won't be able to until later in the year, but there are so many to choose from! :)

      • Thanks! Not sure yet.. there are so many! I would really like to go to BlogHer '13, or maybe Bloggy Boot Camp or Reviewer's Retreat, which is in my home state of GA this year. I could extend my trip and see family and friends while there. Otherwise, I'll be looking for some on the East Coast anyway.

  5. I'm intrigued by the store and home tours! It'd be great to meet you at a conference too :)

    • I'm glad to hear it – hopefully some people will respond and I can start posting some tours soon! :) I think it would be great to meet at a conference. I see you are attending Blissdom and another one this year.

  6. Happy New Year! My goal is usually the same every year… lose more weight, live a healthier lifestyle and enjoy life more!

  7. I can't wait to see more of your design posts. I have no vision and all my design choices are based on things I find in blogs, online, etc. Happy New Year!
