Happy New Years Eve! Right now, you’re either preparing for the big party by buying all the snacks and Prosecco from the supermarket or sitting in work, getting excited for your midweek day off tomorrow. New Year’s Eve is always exciting - will I get a kiss at midnight? What will 2019 bring me? What should my New Year’s Resolution be?
You can tell me until you’re blue in the face that you’re not making any Resolutions this year, but you would be lying and is that really the way to start off 2019? Everyone sets themselves a goal for next year, whether that be a big goal like buying your first house or a little goal like joining a gym. I think you’re fabulous just the way you are but if you’re thinking of changing it up for 2019, what better place to start than now?
I’ve picked the five most popular New Year's Resolutions that you can channel through jewellery. Who says you need to make a list when you can wear your Resolutions round your wrist instead?
Be more organised
Are you always forgetting your plans because you haven’t made a note of them? Are you always losing your pens and pencils? Are you always unprepared for your meetings? This year, make becoming organised your resolution. Mara Hotung has a gorgeous range of safety pin brooches, like the Tsavorite Garnet Safety Pin in 18kt White & Black Gold. Pin it to a jacket, t-shirt or scarf to add a bit of sparkle to an everyday outfit. When stationary looks this pretty, you’ll never forget to be organised again.
Every year, the same resolution is made by countless people. “I want to lose weight”, “I want to eat more fruit and vegetables”, “I want to go to more fitness classes.” If you’re looking to get healthy this year, do it in a smart way. Don’t be too much pressure on yourself and make sure to have fun with it, just like food inspired jewellery.
Learn a new skill
Have you always wanted to learn a new language? Maybe you want to try a new sport? Or learn how to play an instrument? If your New Year's Resolution is to learn a new skill, throw yourself into it. You might find an amazing new hobby or even develop your new skill into a career. If you’ve always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, there’s no time like the present and the Sterling Silver Guitar Pick Pendant is a classic and simple piece, with cool silver and a leather strap. Incorporate your hobby into your style...
Be more charitable
Make 2019 the year of giving and be more charitable than you’ve ever been before. There are so many incredible ways to help charities and here are a few ideas. Choose a cause that is close to your heart and set up a monthly donation. Run a marathon for your charity of choice. Volunteer for a charity and get involved in bake sales, handing out flyers or simply spreading the word. Instead of throwing out old clothes, give them to a charity shop.
Some of our designers have partnered with charity organisations to spread awareness and create unforgettable jewellery that when purchased, a percentage is donated to a charity. You can read about our designer’s charity jewellery here.
Do you love to read but find you have very little time? Set yourself a reading goal this year. Maybe you want to read 30 books by the end of the year? Maybe you want to read all the classics? Maybe you want to start reading more non-fiction or comic books? Whatever your goal, pick up a book or a Kindle and get reading! The Gold Personalised Roald Dahl Necklace is a beautiful simplistic design with a quote from Roald Dahl on it: "Those who don't believe in magic will never find it". A meaningful design, it also gives a subtle nod to your love of books and stories.
