A new year: whether rolling over into 2014 causes feelings of hope, uncertainty, trepidation, or even some amalgam of the three, chances are that New Years is a holiday that holds some weight with you. In honor of all the resolutions we’ve been hearing floating around, we’re doing something a little different today. Below you’ll find six tools to help you bring about the kind of change you wish to see in this time of new beginnings. Whatever your goal, we hope you reach it and then some. Happy 2k14, friends.
We all know that beer is good for your mind and soul (right?), but we’d never before considered the possibility that it’s also good for your face. Luckily, there are people in the world more naturally curious than we. For instance, Mary Kearns, the mind behind Herban Lifestyle (we do love us some puns).

We’re not saying beer is a magical cure-all handed down to us from the gods…but until we find evidence to the contrary, we’ll be in the back room, drinking. Get it here.
