To the Resolution!

Hello, my dear ten readers, and happy new year. Just a quick post about resolutions I’d like to share. Take them as a journal entry, if you will. Or won’t.

 Anyway, in 2017, I resolve to:

Continue to say “You’re welcome” even when people don’t say “Thank you.”

Create a candle.

Ski more.

Use the mute button any time Orange Face comes on the TV.

Take in the beauty of nature, by pausing, looking around and inhaling. And maybe taking a shot for Instagram.


Speaking of Instagram, I resolve to stop following those who incite any type of negative feeling. This includes but is not exclusive to: anger, jealousy, envy, incredulity, frustration and feeling old.

Proudly start admitting my age. (None of your business. Rome wasn’t built in a day…)

Fire up the smoker Bertrand got me for my birthday.

Bake a cake, then smoke it. Also to be smoked: tomato sauce, bread, steak and portabellos.

Make soup every weekend until spring’s thaw.img_9064

Try something seafood-y at least once a month. (I said, Rome wasn’t built in a day)

Spend more time with friends I don’t see enough of.


Nail a homemade kombucha recipe (and save $50 a week in doing so).

Take even more baths.

Grow my gray hair out at least two inches, then assess.


Buy more clogs, Uniqlo Heat-Tech undergarments and cheap shit that thrills me on ebay.

Create a business plan for that weekend restaurant thing we’ve been talking about for three years.

Call said restaurant “Hygge.”

And only serve smoked food.

Jane was executive beauty director at W Magazine for 16 years. When she is not writing beauty articles, she's likely either hiking with her husband and dog, Remy, or in her kitchen, frauding (new verb) her way around a fancy recipe, a home decoration or a highbrow dinner party conversation of which she knows nothing about. In other words, she nods a lot and googles a lot later.

  2. Excellent resolutions, Jane! I would like to book a table at Hygge right now! I thank you in advance (especially for anyone who has failed in past) for making 2017 better for all ten of your readers – as well as the world at large! Happy new year to you all!

    These are stellar resolutions. I, for one, am particularly interested in the candle. I imagine it will smell somehow …smoked 🙂

    Love it! Your writing, and undoubtedly the candle and the restaurant.
