LEISURE LETTER 19: NEW YEAR, NEW DANDY

LEISURE LETTER 19: NEW YEAR, NEW DANDY

 HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE FAM AT DANDY DEL MAR! IN THE SPIRIT OF TRADITION WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU A RESOLUTION GUIDE TO ENSURE THAT NEXT YEAR IS BETTER THAN THE LAST. STAY SAFE ON YOUR CAMPAIGN DE CHAMPAGNE AND ALWAYS LUST FOR LEISURE.
 
1. MAKE THE RESOLUTION

"Resolving to make a resolution is the most important thing."

 -BILL MURRAY

More often than not the hardest part of a race is making it to the starting line. The same could be said for change. So whatever the resolution may be, simply making it is a start.

 
2. REFINE THE MORNING

"I will jump in the river that runs through our backyard, every morning. Why? Just to get my heart started."

-PAUL NEWMAN

We're big believers in morning routines. Whether it's a coffee on the balcony, a Bloody Mary on the balcony, or  a coffee and a Bloody Mary on the balcony. However you choose to start your day, remember, all your BEST days started in the morning, probably with a coffee and a Bloody Mary.

 
3. DRESS LIKE A DANDY

"Wear clean clothes — look good."

-WOODY GUTHRIE

If it is on Father Guthrie's New Year's resolution list, it should probably be on yours too. And rumor has it folk music and  fashion kills fascism. 


4. LIVE WHERE YOU OUGHT TO LIVE

"Never live anywhere but Paris"

-Ernest Hemingway

For a time it was Paris for Hemingway. Later it was Cuba. Where you want to be today may be different tomorrow. Just make sure life is lived where you think it ought to be lived. 


5. MAKE THEM COUNT

"Never make a resolution which won't be as important on the eighth of April or the tenth of July as it is on the first of January"

-Carey Grant

Let's face it. Too much change all at once rarely sticks. After all we're only human and creatures of habit. This is why we resolve to a "less is more" approach with our resolutions. Keep it simple. Keep it focused. And make em count. Like a morning Bloody Mary on a balcony in a foreign country dressed like a Dandy. 

Cheers, 

DDM
