5 Gifts To Buy Yourself to Help Sustain Your New Year Resolution

 If you’re the type to always be running 5-15 minutes late then this is a habit you need to break in the new year! Gifting yourself a few beautiful clocks for around the house will help you stay on top of what time it is. Add at least one to your bedside and one to your bathroom (these are two places it is easy to loose track of time). Your friends will be appreciative that you are no longer late for brunch in 2018!

Splurging on a few serving trays and dishes will making hosting all the easier and fun to use when you don’t have guests as well.

Then after your get out, a big Turkish towel to wrap yourself in sounds like heaven.
