Did You Make Any New Year’s Resolutions?

The City and Us | New Year's Resolutions 2016

How’s your week been? Are you back in the swing of things? The mornings have been a bit of a drag for me after sleeping in practically every morning over the holidays, but I’m slowly getting back on track. This made me laugh.

During lunch hour this week, my colleagues have been chatting about their New Year’s resolutions. There are some good ones, too — be able to touch my toes by the end of the year, bring my own lunch to work more often, have better posture, order only one meal on Seamless per week.

I’ve admitted before that I skip New Year’s Resolutions. But these conversations got me thinking, and now I’m in the mood to try a few. So, my three resolutions are…

  1. Make our apartment feel like home. Ever since we moved to NYC, our apartments have lacked that cozy, comfortable, home-y feel, and more importantly — they just haven’t felt like us. We didn’t even have a couch until recently, and most of the furniture we have was given to us and has never really felt like our style. We’ve made a few upgrades lately, but my plan is to work on decorating, storage solutions, etc and make our space feel like our own.
  2. Face mask. They’ve never been part of my beauty routine, but a few of my friends swear by them. This one looks promising. Let me know if you have any favorites — I’m looking for recommendations!
  3. Keep my everyday bag organized, i.e., one Softlips Cube is enough, and for the love of sanity — do not keep receipts. I’ll be organizing it this weekend.

What are your 2016 resolutions? Are you doing something big?
