Goal: I have a passion for traveling so I'm going to start planning more weekend trips that are affordable and within driving distance. First on my to do list: the Catskills!
Latest Beauty Love: Oribe's Surfcomber Texture Mousse has become a staple in my daily routine. It smell amazing and it's the only product that gives my thick, superslick hair any texture or volume without the added crunch that most sea salt sprays have. I don't know how I ever got by without it!
Goal: I'm going to explore some fun new exercises this year: hula hooping, indoor rock climbing, and trapeze classes are all on my list!
Latest Beauty Love: I love, love, love Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk—it's the perfect product for those mornings I'm running late (read: most mornings). Plus, Gwyneth Paltrow loves it—what more could you ask for?

Goal: I'm going to start keeping a daily dream journal to catalog the many whimsies of my subconscious.
Latest Beauty Love: Long considered the secret weapon of makeup artists and celebs alike, superhydrating Egyptian Magic Skin Cream is my favorite skincare cure-all. If I were a talk show host like Tyra Banks, I'd give a free pot to everyone in my audience."

Goal: Push-ups! I haven't been able to do a single one since I broke my collarbone last year, but I'm determined to regain my upper body strength!
Latest Beauty Love: Hayadi's Pure Happy Smooth hair lotion has become my go-to static buster. It's made with keratin and aloe to add shine and tamp down my out-of-control hat hair. Plus, it smells amazing!

Goal: I'm upgrading my palate in 2014! First up: a vegetarian cooking class, followed by a class on red wines. Latest Beauty Love: I use Beauty Protector's Protect & Detangle almost every time I wash my hair. It smells incredible (a friend said it smells like sugar cookies), and it makes my hair unbelievably shiny, soft, and well behaved. I gave three bottles as Christmas gifts.
