The end of 2013 is upon us, and it’s with a heavy heart that we at Lux & Concord have to say goodbye to what has been a great year. However, even though we have our style on lock, and a full calendar of events to attend, there’s still one last thing to do. Before the clock tolls midnight tonight, we have to make our New Year’s Resolutions, and this time we will have a little help from the ladies behind one of our favorite Etsy shops.
Jess and Karen from “Another F*cking Tote” and other such fancy and profanity-strewn products are here to help you make this your best f*cking New Year’s Eve yet!
These ladies are right up our alley, as are their line of notecards, to do lists and yes, lots of totes. After years of buying them for each other, the two friends launched the “Another F*cking Tote” line. They make their products for each other, for friends and for the “non-boring” people who appreciate the “color and emphasis” of an inappropriate word now and then.
After a year like they’ve had, which has included being featured in Cosmopolitan and now being sold in Urban Outfitters, their personal resolutions are colorfully simple for 2014. Jess wants to “Try anything. Why the f*ck not?” and Karen wishes for “some f*cking sleep (since I have a newborn).”
But when asked to give advice to our readers, they cut you all a little slack, saying, “People put too much pressure on themselves. It’s just a f*cking promise to yourself. If you can’t keep it, then maybe you need to get to know yourself a bit better…” Words from the wise.
Their business resolutions include expanding the brand to include more totes and other “F*cking suggestions” from their fans (Might we recommend coffee mugs…?)
And if you want to have a great f*cking New Years Eve, you have two easy options for success: wearing lots of glitter and sequins…or sweatpants. How could a girl go wrong with either option?!
