This Year, I Resolve To…

 

We asked Denver’s style hounds and trendsetters to tell us their resolutions for 2012. Here, we share a bit of inspiration from the pros

“My New Years resolution is to not make a resolution. If I want to make a change, I’m going to do it right away, not take a year to do it.”

Denim One
“This year I’m going to seize the day…each and every day. I am going to put myself out there, try new things, explore more of Denver, say yes to adventures even if they might scare me and I am going to meet challenges head on. Carpe Denim…oh wait…that’s Carpe Diem…here I come!”

Jenny Lee Walsh

“Purge old tees/tanks/sweaters in favor of fewer fine + tailored pieces. Transform an uninspired room into a chic home office melding traditional + contemporary inspo. Put down worry + embrace the moment. Yoga certification.”

Julie Dunn

“I really should pledge to give up my daily Coca-Cola for breakfast, but since that isn’t realistic, my New Year’s resolution this year is to do more yoga and enjoy every moment with my two precious little boys!”

Barbara Brooks

Brooks Marketing Group
“My New Year’s Resolution is to spend more quality time with my friends and family. Okay, so let’s face it… My real resolution like half a billion people is to lose weight. Only every time I make that resolution, a piece of cake goes in the mouth within two weeks, I stop attending Weight Watchers on day ten and that delicious glass of wine I promise to hold off on finds it way on my lips by day six.”

“Every year, I say to get in and out of a car ‘like a lady.’ Meaning two feet together in last and out first. I blow this by February each year.”

Nicolette Picerno

Nicolette Picerno, MD

Faces First
“Along with being double board certified as a facial plastic surgeon and an otolaryngologist, I want to get board certified in age management medicine. Which would make me a triple board certified doctor – something I have always wanted to achieve.”

Jessica Bacchus

Jessica Bachus

Dolls for Daughters
“My resolution is to enjoy the adventures with my children and to make a difference in the lives of as many children as I can through Dolls for Daughters.”

Paulina Szafranski

Lotus Concepts
“This year, I have three resolutions. First, I am going to work on becoming a domestic goddess by learning how to cook. I’d love to take a couple’s cooking class (some even serve wine during class)! Next, I am going to stick with entering my daily food intake and exercise into MyFitnessPal.com so I can rock a hot bikini in Vegas at the Encore Beach Club parties! (All my friends and co-workers and I are obsessed with this app that tracks all the calories and nutritional value of what you eat everyday and tracks calories burned through exercise…even cleaning the house or shopping). Finally, I resolve to convert ALL my magazine subscriptions to a KindleFire or iPad to save paper and room in my house.”

“I resolve to give back to the world more and more, keep loving and smiling and to make sure that our Ziva Chocolates pass through the lips of every single person on this planet! Okay, at least close to every person.”
