A few years ago I stopped making New Years resolutions. It wasnt that I didnt want to be healthier, happier, or more organized. It was that those goals seemed natural to pursue year round. So instead, on New Years Day, I made a list of achievable goals, rather than resolutions, for the yearthings like run a half marathon, visit Spain, and learn to scuba dive.And then I did them. Well, not all of them. Scuba diving will have to wait for another year. But having a list of big goals and accomplishing many of them was both exciting and ultimately rewarding. Here at SouthPark Magazine, we recently began making a list of big goals. Our magazine has always brought you glossy coverage of Charlottes upscale neighborhoods, stores, restaurants, and people. But as the citys luxury offerings increase, we want to ensure that our publication is packed with the top people and places you want to see. Thats why starting this month youll find a fresh new look on many of our pages and more coverage than ever before of the citys style arbiters, taste makers, and trend setters. And speaking of a fresh look, this month were serving up the citys secrets for looking great. From fitness fashions to the hippest classes in town, our writers found exciting ways to get you motivatedand sveltein the New Year. Plus, check out our new Avenue section where we showcase Charlottes top vegetarian options and a local spot brewing the health worlds latest favorite elixir, Kombucha. You may have also noticed that Im new. Cristina Wilson is now helming our sister publication, Carolina Bride, which means I have the pleasure of leading SouthPark. And, of course, making certain that this magazine is serving you best is at the top of my list of New Years goals. So enjoy the issue and I hope that you find plenty of inspiration in these pages for your own New Years list.
