New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions

We don’t adhere to that old cliché ‘new year, new you’ (which implies that we were somehow inferior before), but there is something to be said for the clean slate the dawn of a new year seems to offer. So in the spirit of making positive, achievable improvements we can implement throughout the year (rather than dispiriting and drastic changes that are soon forgotten come February), we asked some of our friends what they’re striving for in 2018.

Dolly Alderton (Writer, co-host of The High Low podcast)

To read more, run more, breathe and sleep deeper, and to stop watching Downton Abbey repeats.”

Briony Whitehouse (blogger at

“I always seem to be over-stretched and sometimes struggle to find balance, but then really beat myself up when I can’t do everything perfectly and all at once. So I’m resolving to stop being stop feeling guilty about everything, to stop worrying so much about what people think of me or things which I can’t control, and to carve out more time downtime for small pleasures and the things (and people) I love – weekends away, lunch dates with friends, buying flowers, and ending each day with a book (rather than my phone).”

Charlotte Jacklin (blogger at

“This is the first year I am feeling truly positive and excited for a new year. My biggest resolution is to be kind to myself, not to beat myself up if things don’t get done or you don’t achieve ‘perfect’. As long as I tried my best, then I'm happy with that.” 

Leanne Bayley (Content Editor, Glamour Magazine)

I recently read ‘Get Your Sh*t Together’ by Sarah Knight and I loved it. My goal for 2018 is to put her words in to action and use my precious time getting my life in order. I’ve recently set up a blog called Daily Bayley so I want to make sure I keep that, um, daily.”

Nicola Davy (Head of Brand Communications, CSC)

“To spend less time worrying!”

Kim Turkington (blogger at

“To spend more time with friends and family. With a full time job and a blog, work/life balance can be non-existent. Plus, living away from home means I don’t see my family as much as I would like. Next year I’ll be making a conscious effort to pick up the phone, arrange meet ups, and book flights home.”


Penny Goldstone (Digital Fashion Editor, Marie Claire)

“To not put as much pressure on myself to please everyone, be it at work or at home.”

Jordan Bunker (blogger at

“To spend more time with friends and allow myself to switch off from work on the weekend.”

Emma Richman (Senior Press Officer, CSC)

To stop being a compulsive apologiser!”

Nick Byam (Junior Fashion Editor, Attitude Magazine)

“At risk of sounding boring, it’s to try to eat better now that I'm getting old!”

Pom Ogilvy (Junior Fashion Coordinator, Vogue Magazine)

“To cook more and run more.”
