It’s New Years Eve — can you believe it! — and I’ll be ringing in 2016 in Tahoe at one of my favorite little Swiss restaurants, Swiss Lakewood. I can’t wait to sip some champagne, pop open some party poppers, and set off some sparklers — I mean, does it get any better than that?
Of course the inevitable question of New Year Resolutions will come up and while I’m still working out what I want for this year, I do have a few ideas nailed down. Keep reading for a few of my resolutions — and corresponding shopping picks — for 2016.
The Year of Skincare
2015 gifted me my first wrinkle and first grey hair. Let me tell you, that was enough to get me started on an anti-aging kick to rival Gwyneth. Unfortunately, I still struggle with my skin — I’m a devoted Proactive user — so it’s hard to find skincare that doesn’t aggravate my skin. This year, I’m going to go back to getting regular facials (my favorite is Sharon at Serenity Wellness Spa), spending more time on my morning and nightly regimen, and scouting out new products to try.
Top Picks: Vitamin C Serum, Mario Badescu // Tata’s Daily Essentials, Tata Harper // Eye Concentrate, La Mer // Precision Lifting and Pore Tightening Concentrate, Kiehl’s // Clarisonic
The Year of Hobbies
I took photography throughout high school and college and have been meaning to get back into the groove of using my 35mm Nikon — full disclosure: this was my New Years Resolution last year too. I have the most perfect large closet in my house that is just begging to be transformed into a dark room, but I feel like I need to prove to myself that I will actually use it before I put everything in place. Added bonus: I’m planning on putting more effort and time into Sequins + Studs. Get excited!
A little kitch for ya: Couture Camera, Judith Leiber // Camera iPhone Case, Kate Spade // Steal the Spotlight Crossbody, Kate Spade
The Year of Exploration
Last year I made the resolution to try something new every week, whether that be a new restaurant, bar, hike, etc. Well guys, I’m bringing this one back again! San Francisco has so much to offer, yet it’s so easy to get a little rut going to the same places over and over. Stay tuned for some new features on San Francisco coming in 2016!

Happy New Year!
