Ok, we know January has passed and we should have written New Year’s resolutions already, but we’re firm believers that it’s never too late.  While reading the February issue of Vogue, I was inspired by an article about model/musician Abbey Lee Kershaw.  In it she said, “I don’t rely on the Earth ending its yearly dance with the sun to make positive changes in my life, I make resolutions each moment as necessary.”  While this was eloquently said it got me to thinking…I have to disagree.  I think we all need something to aspire and hope for.  A hope that no matter how hard and discouraging life was last year, this is a new year, a fresh start and a new chapter full of things that have never been.  I think we all need the belief that every passing moment is another chance to turn it all around, and what better time to begin than at the end of the Earth’s yearly dance!  So let’s all resolve to make it an amazing year; a year to be savored!

I saw this in Studio City while out shopping and I couldn’t help but smile.  Let’s all welcome 2012 with open arms and an open heart that this may be the year all our dreams come true.  You never know…lightning may strike!

Even though we are a month into 2012 we decided to share with you our New Years Resolutions. We hope that this will inspire you to get back on track with the resolutions you made a month ago or come up with your own list of aspirations for 2012.  Either way, it’s not too late to recommit to a fulfilling year.

We want to focus not so much on all the things we shouldn’t eat but more on the things that we should be eating.  It’s so important to fuel our bodies with fresh clean food.  We have both been into juicing lately.  It’s such a great way to get a large amount of nutrients in one sitting and it’s great for your skin.  Also, exercise is something we all try to recommit to and it’s so important.  This year, focus on doing it for your health and the hot body will come with it.

Take fashion risks!  We believe that life is too short to play it safe, especially with the way you look.  A lot of people get comfortable in the mundane, but secretly long for the glamour. We’re too scared to switch up our style often because of what other people might think, or if you’re like me, you tend to dress according to your mood and sometimes that can be scary!  So If your heart skips a beat every time you see those studded heels or you have always secretly wanted to rock red lips as well as Gwen, we say go for it!  Why not!  The great thing about style is you can always change it so why not have fun with it?  Let’s all get in touch with the Carrie Bradshaw in us and have a little fun!  So venture out of the everyday neutral eye make up and add a pop of blue here and there or go buy those leather pants you’ve been seeing all over the magazines (they’re hot right now).  It’s a new year and it can be a new you.

We’re both dancers and this is one of our personal goals this year.  I had an injury this last year and have spent the last six months in recovery and in therapy.  It has been a long road but I am finally ready to get back in the studio and back in shape.  Katie got a job this last year that has kept her extremely busy and while she has been dancing she hasn’t been able to do the kind of dancing that she wants.  So this year we’ve decided that there will be more dancing!  Dancing is good for the soul so even if you are not a professional dancer it’s something we can all benefit from. Whether it’s to de-stress or to loose weight go find a class where you can cut loose and have some fun.
Wouldn’t we all love to travel more?  This year we are going to be adventurers.  Whether it means packing our bags or just experiencing the new.  There is so much to see and do in this city and we want it all.  We will be experiencing L.A. like never before and we will be sharing it with you. Go do what you’ve never done and experience the new. Life awaits.
What a great time to expand our knowledge and learn something new.  A new skill, a new sport, an art or a trade.  What are you going to learn this year?
There is something so magical about books.  I dream of someday having a beautiful library with rolling ladders and a cozy couch and a purring cat by my side.  A place to escape the world and get lost in a good book.  We have so much media and technology these days that sometimes it’s hard to focus on reading.  When we say reading we mean reading actual books, not audio books or Kindle’s or ipads.  Let’s get back to the simpler life of less distraction.  I love to buy books but have been notorious for not finishing them. This year we will read (and finish) more books. Any suggestions?

We will love and serve more because nice matters.  You never know how a small act of kindness will impact someones life.  Make it a point to be kind to everyone and really search out ways to help people.  Even if it’s just to be there for a friend in need.  Remember that everyone is fighting a hard battle, so love more.  The world needs more love.
That’s it!  Hope you are inspired to make it an amazing year!  We would love to hear some of your New Years Resolutions.
Much love,  K&A
