A new start for 2012

Happy New Year!

Did you make a resolution yet?  I did. I revisited last year’s resolutions, and while I cannot rewrite what was written in the books, I can rethink how to make a new chapter, and make this a great year. My New Year’s resolutions for the forthcoming year are as follows.

1. I want to be more spontaneous. You know…more passport stamps, more movies with friends, have more fearless moments. It goes like this: I can wear that, go there, write that, fly there, meet wherever.

2. I want to be more productive and set small goals for the week. How to do this? Being on a European clock doesn’t hurt. Early to bed, early to rise. Big resolutions never work out for me. I am better off sticking to the task at hand, and actually getting it accomplished (like this blog post). I would like to under-promise and over-deliver. This way I won’t disappoint myself or others. And have these as colorful inspirations right in my office.

3. I want to be the very best I can be. I want to dress more sophisticated and groovy, which means planning more outfits and streamlining those looks into uniforms. I find this trick so helpful especially with a freshly edited closet. All around London there were, oddly enough spring flowers in bloom, which got me in the proper mood for florals.  More on the London trip and bashed neeps in the next post. I especially love the bright florals from Erdem Pre-Fall collection.

I want to feel my best which for me translates into exercising, and eating healthily.

Feeling green with envy? Studies show its not that bad to be envious. As long as its the healthy kind. I am always inspired by a jade-colored fabulous manicure. Paint, paint, paint. Inhale those fumes.There’s a parallel universe here.


So while we look back at all that 2011 has brought and taken from us and we look forward to what 2012 has in store. If you want to make your mark, get yourself a style consultant. PS I’m available next week. And here’s a free tip; don’t be afraid of pink. They say it’s the new black.

  1. I like the idea of setting limited goals each day, getting them accomplished and going on to the next thing to be achieved. Eventually it all adds up to the goal you had in mind when you first started taking those small steps.
