2016 Resolutions! How Miami's Influencers Plan on Having the 'Best Year Ever'

New, 1 comment

As 2015 wraps up, we've tapped in a handful of reputable fashion and fitness friends to weigh in on the year's greatest hits (and misses) for our Year in Racked! This January, we're rolling out content to help you have the "Best Year Ever." To start off, let's see what fashion and fitness resolutions our influencers have made.

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Alexandra Shepard, Mind Body Manager at Exhale Spa: My resolution this year is to start the year by doing Whole 30 for a system reboot on January 1st so I look and feel my best.

Ashley Brozic, Editor of Racked Miami: Owning my own personal style and investing in less fast fashion trends and more quality products and brands. Other than that, I'm making this the year I get shit done.

Celene Gee, Owner of Gee Beauty: Consistency is key! It's the only way to feel balanced. Miami is a town of amazing indulgences, so finding the balance that works for you is the most important thing for feeling and looking great. Working out, taking care of your skin, yoga, eating well, being outside, the beach, sunsets– we have it all! Style-wise, I'm sticking with what works and am trying to be influenced less and less by trends. At the end of the day, I'm a jeans and T-shirt girl!

Chad Tucker, Stylist: Be kind to yourself and the rest will follow. It is simple and it works for me.

Jhon Jairo Santos, Fashion Editor at Metrovelvet and Brickell and Key Biscayne Magazines: Optimism and faith are two best friends that help me to understand, learn and achieve my life goals wherever I go. However, I do have my own rituals. They say that you attract whatever you put out there, and that's what I do. I put on my best look every December 31, and I think of how important I want all aspects of my life to be for the next year. That's my go to ritual– It always works!

Kelly Saks, Blogger: Get better at editing my life, from clutter in my wardrobe to killjoys and energy suckers.

Melissa Mosheim, Owner of MVM Miami: This year my resolution is not to stay in holiday mode for too long. Last year I took a long break from working out post holidays and it just makes it that much harder to get back into shape.

Nicole Mejia, Founder of Fit & Thick: My resolution for 2016 is to stop procrastinating. If I think of something that I have to do I'm going to do it right then and there. No more adding it to a mental list that I never get to! In 2016, Im getting proactive.

Nikki Novo, Author, Speaker, and Blogger: My resolution is to worry less. Not only is worry such a waste of time, but it makes you ugly, fat, and stressed. I can do without all of that.

Regina Arriola Cauff, Founding Partner of Style Rac: Stay balanced.

Ria Michelle, Blogger: I don't do resolutions, it's just another way to lie to yourself. Rather I'm working on being more organized and focusing on time management.

Simonett Pereira, Founder of Style Mafia: I have set my intention to making time for working out daily, maintaining a healthy diet/lifestyle, reading a new book every month, and talking to a stranger every chance I get.
