Sure, January 1st may mark the onset of the official new year. But for most of us, it’s more about the excitement of New Year’s celebrations than an actual new beginning. In fact, there’s not a lot of “newness” about that time of year at all. It’s still winter. We’re still in the same humdrum routines. For many of us, it’s still just midway through the school year. And for all of us, it just doesn’t feel like all that much is fresh.
Now September 1st — that’s when the new year actually feels like it’s ready to start. Albeit nine months into the “official” calendar year, it’s when our new planners actually begin. It’s the beginning of fall, when the leaves begin to change, the beginning of school terms, and (most importantly for fashion diehards) the beginning of the biggest, boldest fashion season of the year.
This is the time to take charge, get inspired, and tackle all those goals you’ve been “getting around to.” It’s the time to get creative, whether that means totally revamping your wardrobe or drastically revising your beauty routine. It’s the time to do everything from taking that cooking class you’ve always dreamed about to *finally* committing to a solid fitness plan.
Basically, we’re saying to heck with Janurary 1st. *Now* is the best time to ring in those fresh starts.
Of course, during any time of transition and change, it’s only right that we treat ourselves to a little retail therapy to commemorate the occasion. And to get your September new year off to the perfect start, we’ve got a few feel-good products that’ll do the trick.
