New Year’s Resolutions. We all have them. And this year, more than ever, we could all use a fresh, new start!
Naturally, losing weight is at the top of most of our lists. Who couldn’t stand to lose a few pounds after indulging throughout the holidays? But, looking great isn’t solely about weight.
Here are a few ways that you can get gorgeous in the new year… no diet required.
Change your hair color or cut. This need not be dramatic. Add some highlights or low lights. Experiment with bangs. If you’re not ready for a permanent change, try an up-do if you usually wear hair loose. Or, add an unexpected hair accessory (my new faves are 100% silk scrunchies from Lovanie).
Pucker up! Trying a sassy new lipstick is one of my favorite ways to perk up from my post-holiday doldrums. You can also experiment with false eyelashes, liquid liner, or bronzer to add some punch to your usual makeup routine.
Clean out your closet. If you are still holding on to clothing, shoes and accessories that no longer fit or are hopelessly out of date, now is the time to purge. You may even rediscover fabulous items you’ve forgotten that you have! A closet makeover should also include some organization. (Almost two years after installation, I am still in love with my system from Closets By Design!)
Add a coveted piece. The after-Christmas sales are starting in earnest! Now is a wonderful time to pick up that one stunning piece that you’ve been eyeing up all season. A few of my top picks include a new leather tote and some updated equestrian boots.
Here’s to a beautiful new year…
