Helping You Keep Your New Year's Resolutions
January 4, 2017
It’s that time of year: If you listen carefully, you’ll hear the sound of millions of new leaves being turned over. The key to keeping resolutions is choosing goals you really care about, and then preparing — and we can help with the second part. Here’s The Mall at Millenia’s shopping list to keep you on the path to success — not just in January, but every day in 2017. We got this!
Get more sleep
The science is in: sleep is key to happiness and good health. If you have trouble getting to bed at a decent hour, sweeten the deal for yourself with some luxurious sleepwear: Anthropologie Great Gatsby pajamas; Donna Karan silk sheets from Bloomingdale’s; and an Iluminage skin-rejuvenating sleepmask from Sephora — infused with copper to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Whether it’s time, money, vacation leave, or school, there’s always a reason not to take that trip. But there’s always a reason to take it, too: the joy of seeing the world. Remind yourself of that by investing in some fabulous travel gear and keeping it somewhere you’ll see it often. Try any Louis Vuitton luggage — pictured is the Keepall Bandouliere 55; Tory Burch’s metallic cosmetic case; and Lilly Pulitzer’s cashmere pants and zip-up hoodie, for the perfect flight outfit.
Get that promotion
“Dress for the job you want” is more than just a saying. Most people make up their minds about you within 30 seconds of meeting you; if you want to get ahead, you have to make the most of those 30 seconds. Allow Zac Posen to help you do just that: his Brooks Brothers collections are modern classics, and no item more so than the Spring 2017 tuxedo dress in Italian wool and satin. Pair with classic black Romy pumps from Jimmy Choo and — every businesswoman’s secret weapon — an iPad, from the Apple store. Use it to stay organized and keep your work computer free of personal browsing.
The Productivity Planner from Anthropologie isn’t any old planner: it’s designed to help you prioritize your tasks. If it’s time-keeping that’s your weakness, what better excuse to splurge on a beautiful watch? Zenith’s Elite ladies’ watch — made in Switzerland, available at Mayors Jewelers — is ultra-thin, uber-elegant, and a million times better than checking your iPhone every five minutes. Or allow Kate Spade New York to give you the cutest of helping hands keeping track of your special occasions and contacts.
This is the most common resolution, and also the most commonly broken. Make it fun with a FitBit from Macy’s — once you can track your movements and compete with friends, you’ll find yourself excited to exercise. And why not treat yourself to some new gear, too: Lululemon Athletica’s reversible yoga mats are treated with antimicrobials, so they keep that new feeling for longer, and Athleta’s new sportswear collection is the brand’s most fashion-forward to date.
