Resolve to do it yourself: Pick up supplies or sign up for a class at one of the city's many craft stores.

Resolve to indulge in good-smelling stuff: Grab some new candles for your apartment.

Resolve to put your best face forward: Add regular facials to your beauty regimen.

Resolve to vacation more (or just look like you did): Get a spray tan that's not harmful to your health.

Resolve to try something new: Like a holistic treatment or a sewing class.

Resolve to write more thank-you notes: Pick up some new stationery (and maybe a few good pencils).

Resolve to freaking relax more: Forget brunching and snuggle up with cozy bedding.
