8 Coveteur’s New Year’s Resolutons

As told by Arianna Huffington, Giuseppe Zanotti, Bobbi Brown & more.

Nothing divides a crowd quite like the great New Year’s Resolutions debate. Do you resolve to change? Does it work? Or do you inevitably make the exact same ones, every single year? With that in mind, we consulted a handful of our Coveteurs on what exactly they have in mind for 2016—and the answers were every bit as varied as you’d imagine.

 


Priyanka Chopra

“I make them every December, and I break them every January. That’s my pattern. [Laughs] It’s so stupid. Like man proposes, God disposes. So I stopped making resolutions. I just have a fun time on New Years, and I hope that the next year will be better than the one that went by.”

 

Giuseppe Zanotti

“I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions any more. When you get older, you become wiser. You realize that all of your dreams and plans are constantly altered by sudden events and surprises. I used to get very disappointed by unexpected things in life, but I have started to enjoy them now. When I drive, it’s pretty much the same. I love listening to music, so I just turn the radio on and I enjoy the flow of songs. I prefer that rather than playing a specific cd or playlist. Randomness can be fun and inspirational. Also, when it comes to design new shoes, unexpected elements play a very interesting role. I am at a stage in life where I accept what happens with serenity. I don’t have preset goals anymore. It is the best attitude to get good results and less upset.”

 

Lady Dawn Russell

“My birthday is New Year’s Day, so I have been lucky that on January 1st I usually wake up feeling fresh and facing presents rather than resolutions! But yes, I have always tried to have some positive goal for the new year. I discovered early on if you don’t make it realistic then you just feel worse when you can’t keep it up. My resolution has been the same for the last 15 years: eat well, take care of your body from the inside and you will have a better year.

When I was recovering from cancer I found that eating well, and especially eating huge amounts of certain greens (Spinach, Kale, Chlorella, Blue Green Algae, Wheat Grass, Barley Grass, Spirulina and Aloe Vera), had the biggest impact on how well I felt and the energy I had. But getting these into my daily diet even with juicing was just very hard: your kitchen looks like a produce section. Plus, you often end up adding so much apple juice to make this mixture taste good you are way overloading on sugar (the WORST thing in your diet). This was why I spent the last 4 years developing 8 Greens. I wanted a way that I could get all these greens wherever I was and without needing a basket of vegetables and a juicer. I also wanted a way that I could help people who think they don’t like the taste of these green juices (like my husband!) actually enjoy getting these important greens into their diet. The result is an effervescent tablet that you drop into a glass of water, wait for it to dissolve and drink something that has those 8 greens, no sugar and tastes really great. How do I keep my resolutions? Remove the barriers to making them too difficult for the realities of our busy daily lives.”

Kristen Noel Gipson

“I have two New Year’s resolutions. The first one is pretty broad, in a sense. I want to be a better person. That includes being a better wife, mother, daughter/sister and friend. I want to spend more quality time with my family. Put my phone down more and enjoy the moment. Be more active with my children. Have more dates with my husband. Make more phone calls to my siblings and my parents. My second resolution is to grow my fine jewelry line, KDIA, more. I want to work on releasing more pieces, limited edition drops and possibly collaborations.

I love New Year’s resolutions. I think it's gives you a fresh start and really makes you want to accomplish your goals. Oh, and I can't forget, I want to lose this baby weight too!”

Charlotte Tilbury

“I believe in having resolutions, in putting things out there and not limiting your ambition. I always say to my amazing team that they should: dare to dream, dare to believe and dare to do it. My other beauty skincare resolution for this year is to use even more of my amazing skincare overnight! Skincare is SO important. You can't have a beautiful painting without a beautiful canvas! I apply my genius Goddess Skin Clay Mask for flawless, poreless baby skin in minutes. I then apply my miracle-working moisturizer Magic Cream, which floods the skin with moisture and my genius Wonderglow, I call it Gisele in a jar; it re-emits natural light through the skin for a lit-from-within effect. I have a top secret, instant youth-boosting night product coming out soon too–so stay tuned!

I'm a great believer in creative visualization. I think people need to believe in themselves more. DREAM BIGGER, and visualize their success. Do what you want to do, and never let anyone tell you no.”

Arianna Huffington

“I firmly believe in New Year’s resolutions, and the power of certain milestone moments to help us hold ourselves accountable and make changes in our lives. My new book, "Sleep Revolution," comes out in April, and having been through book tours before, I know they're not necessarily conducive to a healthy, sane, rejuvenating sleep schedule. So my resolution is to embrace the message of my own book as best I can, no matter what comes my way, leading by example when it comes to making sleep a priority in my life.

I find that going public with a resolution (like this) is a really good way to make the commitment stick. It’s like having a Resolutions buddy or sponsor — only lots of them. Telling everyone makes it that much harder for me to let myself off the hook – and ensures that my family, friends and colleagues will nudge me if needed!”

Bobbi Brown

“Shift. Spend more time with friends and find a hip hop class.”

 

Erin Foster

“For a resolution to work, they need to be realistic, and I don’t think you should share them with people because they shouldn’t be used against you if you fall short! That being said, I will share mine: it is to be more direct. Whenever i realize I’m adult who is being passive or not taking the lead on something I know I can be in charge of, I end up feeling shitty and regretting it. Stop apologizing and go get what you want!”
