The 2023 Glow-Up

January 30, 2023

We’re all about striving to be the best version of ourselves year-round, but the start of a new year just hits different. Head to The Shoppes to kickstart your 2023 refresh with nourishing food, a trendsetting wardrobe and home decor reset, and some well-earned self care.

From the Inside Out

The most important step to being a better you in 2023 is nourishing your body from the inside out. Start the day with essential antioxidants by introducing a delicious and wholesome organic acai bowl from Trader Joe’s. If you’re eating lunch on the go, Panera Bread has selections packed with healthy grains and nutrients, like this Mediterranean Bowl with brown rice, quinoa, hummus and tahini. On your next Starbucks visit, consider swapping your usual Frappuccino for an antioxidant rich cup of green tea. If you still want to satisfy your sweet tooth, try a matcha latte!

Back to Basics

Studies show that our mental health is influenced by the amount of clutter in our homes. Doing a full closet purge will do wonders for your mood and help you hone in on your personal style. Once you get rid of the excess, fill the holes in your closet with quality basics to mix and match with your existing pieces. A cool pair of slouchy paperbag trousers from Banana Republic will update that plain black tee you already love, while a bold striped sweater from GAP will elevate a simple pair of black skinny jeans.
