2019 Resolutions: Body Positivity, Healthy Diets and Shopping Sustainably by Didier Young

Hello everyone and I hope that you’ve all spent a wonderful holiday season! 2018 has been such a whirlwind and I am so thankful for all the good and bad things that have happened in my life. I worked with some of my dream brands, travelled far more than I ever had and even got engaged to the love of my life (I’ll tell you more about that soon). Now that I’ve taken some well deserved R & R, it is time to refocus on myself and on what I expect for the upcoming year. As it is the tradition, here are my resolutions for the year 2019.

Winter is the season where my skin requires the most care, pampering and regular exfoliation. I decided to write a small series of posts about how to take care of my skin during those dire months. Part one of the series focusses on facial masks.

Resolutions by Didier Young

New year, New me. As we bid adieu to a very interesting 2016, we partake into another big cultural tradition: New Year resolutions. Each January, we choose some goals we would love to achieve throughout the year and we try our best to adhere to them. As a global community being influenced by the same social pressures and beliefs, we do tend to have a somewhat mainstream list of goals we would like to tick off our check lists. However, how realistic are the goals we set and how likely are we to achieve them?
