I don’t make New Year’s resolutions anymore since my whole life feels like a never-ending self-improvement campaign. You should see my monthly goal list held inside this Hermès beauty.

Oh how I love this thing.
I do believe in reminding myself of simple ways to get more enjoyment out of everyday life and for 2012 these are my top choices:
1. Wear red nail polish more often. My friend Serene at The Elegant Bohemian often has red nails in her posts and she looks so elegant and chic. What are more classic and mood-improving than red nails?
I have to bust out the red nail polish (and leopard cuff) more often.
2. Wear sequins as much as possible. Or Hermès scarves, diamond or pearl jewelry, or whatever wonderful thing I already own. Do not save the good stuff!

Hermès Twilly in the Grand Manège pattern. I’m happy to report I’ve been wearing this baby a lot.
3. Drink prosecco with friends at every opportunity. I understand from experience that life as you know it can change in an instant so I try to make a point of having as much fun as possible, which includes bubbly with friends!
I am deep in my prosecco phase. It’s cheaper than champagne and often better. I got this from FreshDirect, the grocery ordering service in NYC, for $16.99. I will be toasting to you when I drink this on New Year’s Eve!
