Hitched 2.0: My Bridal Resolutions

After an entire lifetime of never making New Year’s resolutions, I spontaneously decided to do just that in 2015. I made a handful of random, personal resolutions, but seeing as our upcoming nuptials are a somewhat big deal, I figured I need an entirely separate list for wedding-related resolutions. Without further ado, I (will attempt…

Instead Of New Year’s Resolutions, Make New Year’s Challenges That Encourage You To Compete With Yourself

If you’re like me and failing at New Year’s resolutions makes you feel guilty and at least a little bit like a failure, here’s an alternative: Gamify your resolutions and make them into New Year’s Challenges, instead.

Make It Work: 5 Career Resolutions For 2015

Generally speaking, New Year’s resolutions are bullshit. They’re entertaining cocktail party fodder at best, a way to talk to people you’ve just met over the cheese plate about how you’re definitely going to quit smoking/go to the gym/take up tantric meditation this year. They are a self-soothing practice, stated with the intent to make you feel like you’re actually going…

The Key To Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year! I've stopped making resolutions all together in attempt to lessen my feelings of shame. And stress. Now, I just spend the end of the year assessing and setting new goals. Kind of the same thing, I guess. But should you be wanting to make some hardcore resolutions this year, some research done…

Style Resolution: Get Dressed Every Day

OK, I know this sounds less like a grown-up style resolution and more like something a mom would put on her kindergartner's daily chore chart, so let me explain.  I write for The Frisky from my apartment in Portland, and working from home gives a person certain sartorial freedoms that you don't get when you…

Style Resolution: Dress Like An Adult

My name is Julie, and I have a problem: I don't know how to dress like an adult. Maybe I should have listened when my mom warned that becoming a vegetarian at age 13 would stunt my growth. Even if she was wrong, I'm only 5 feet tall. And this has presented some "interesting" style…

Girl Talk: A New Way Of Seeing In 2012

2011 had scarcely started before my life turned into a heaping pile of dog shit. The Frisky was being sold to new owners and our jobs (and paychecks) were held in balance. My boyfriend started diddling around with some girl on the Internet, got caught, and dumped me. He asked me to move out of…

Well, 2011 was a hell of a year, wasn't it? We've almost made it through, but did your resolutions? Last year, we gave you some great resolution suggestions -- among them to learn something new, date outside your "type" and end toxic relationships -- but we're sure you had your own ideas. So tell us:…

What Are Your Half Year Resolutions?

Happy June 1st, y'all. I'm not exactly sure how time is sprinting by so freaking fast, but we have already almost reached the half point of 2011. [The half point, I guess, would maybe be July 1? Six months completed, six months to go? Whatever. -- Editor] Which makes today a great day to push…

What Are Your New Year’s Resolutions?

I'm still contemplating my New Year's resolutions. I could make a list and make it boring, the theme being fix all the stuff I could do better. You know, like save more, scrub the toilet with greater vigor, and practice yoga daily. Or I could focus on all the dreams I'd like to accomplish --…

What Are Your Springtime Resolutions?

Winter sucks. It's officially over now, I know, but I've found myself thinking about its long dark days now that I've been enjoying my comfortable outdoor freedom. I've been stopping to smell the flowers (magnolias and not roses yet, it's true, but the point of the saying remains!). I read a book on my porch,…

What Are Your Beauty Resolutions?

Normally, I'm not a resolution person—I make them, stick to them for, oh, two weeks and then I forget entirely about them. Fun times. For me, making resolutions usually makes me feel worse about my life—just one more reminder of stuff I haven't yet done. So, imagine my anxiety when reading about beauty resolutions over…
