Forget dreamy goals and lofty ambitions for just a minute. Let go of those goals and give yourself a break. For 2018, let's all agree to stay perfectly imperfect, shall we? Read on for 10 New Year's Resolutions we can tooootally get behind. After all, they involve shoe shopping and getting new stuff at Sephora. #resolutionkept.
Happy New Year, lovelies!
WHY WE'RE ALL OVER THIS IDEA | Most people have the same Canadian winter uniform - black parka, black leggings, Sorels, coffee. It works, we have that exact uniform, too - I mean it's about survival, right? But if you're looking to change up the status quo for 2018, we highly recommend this silver stunner that is 100% guaranteed to score you compliments and admiring looks wherever you go. Not everyone has the guts to pull this off but it's 2018 - do you?

WHY WE'RE ALL OVER THIS IDEA | It's hard to ask for help sometimes but if you've just come off the holiday season feeling a little less fit than before, you just might appreciate a pair of sculpting leggings. These babies will hold you in, flatter your curves and make you feel all kindsa toned, no lunges required. Yup, we're definitely down with that.

WHY WE'RE ALL OVER THIS IDEA | You go and buy a cute sports bra with an amazing criss-cross back and then nobody sees it but the inside of your shirt. Tragic. A little well-placed cut-out lets you show off your assets in a super subtle way if you like to stay (mostly) covered-up at the gym.
WE LOVE | HYBA Cut-Out Top, $39.90, Reitmans
WHY WE'RE ALL OVER THIS IDEA | If wine at night and lots of coffee in the morning have been your daily go-to's, January is the perfect time for a little detox. Enter the Wellness Collection from DAVIDsTEA with blends to help you focus, detox, digest, and even improve your complexion.

WHY WE'RE ALL OVER THIS IDEA | Forget marathons, half-marathons, even 5Ks for right now. If we've learned anything from past failed resolutions, it's that going hardcore is often super hard to keep up. As they say, you have to walk before you can run, so let's start 2018 walking; ideally around a mall where it's warm, even more ideally whilst buying new shoes. Amirite?

WHY WE'RE ALL OVER THIS IDEA | Basics are so, well, basic. And why be basic when you can be extra? (sidenote: make resolution to stop using the words 'basic' and 'extra') Anyway, fashion is allll in the details so when you see an average tee, tell yourself you're worth it, put it aside, then pick up one with amazing details like this pearl-embellished stunner.
WE LOVE | Faux Pearl Tee, $38, American Eagle
WHY WE'RE ALL OVER THIS IDEA | Life is not meant to be lived in black and white. And since purple is the big colour of 2018, we're committing to adding more of it to our wardrobes in 2018. These earrings are gorge, btw.

WHY WE'RE ALL OVER THIS IDEA | You will never find shopping joy if you only ever buy things you need. So treat yoself - whether you have the budget for a $14 pair of amazeballs earrings (see above) or that $600 totally impractical bag you've been eyeing. In other words: forget about your head and follow your heart.
WE LOVE | Parker Colorblock Bag, $585, Coach
WHY WE'RE ALL OVER THIS IDEA | We cannot (repeat: cannot) over-emphasize the importance of properly fitting undergarments. This year, invest in underwear that doesn't dig in and get properly fitted in a bra that lifts you up, wire-free.

WHY WE'RE ALL OVER THIS IDEA | We know, we know - we should be drinking more water. But let's face it, it's tough to get your 8 glasses and not all of us are very good at it. So, how about 4 glasses of water and then a water-infused moisturizer to make up the rest? Any excuse to shop at Sephora, right?
