Best + Worst of 2013

It has become a yearly tradition over the last 3 years to share my favorite and least favorite things from this year. The things that gained my seal of approval over the last 365 days. You know, like Oprah’s favorite things or like a popular girl in high school setting trends. People look to me for what is cool and I’m just doing my duty to deliver.
