Personal stylist and image consultant Jennifer Harris of JDHSTYLE, gave GoLocalPDX many beauty tips and resolutions such as one of her go to’s, exfoliate and moisturize daily.

“As a busy style guru, of advancing age, ahem, I try to take care of my skin. Especially, with this dry, cold weather. It can be harsh,” said Harris.  

Jessica Kane, owner of SKORCH magazine and blogger of Life & Style of Jessica, told GoLocalPDX readers to throw away that old and dry mascara as it does expire.

“I have a bit of a foot fetish so to speak,” said Portland fashion designer Wendy Ohlendorf of Boulevard de Magenta. “I love pedicures but don’t always have time to spend in the salon.  I keep a big basin here at home that I fill with Epsom Salts, dried herbs and botanicals, and green clay, or Aura Cacia Balancing Sage Mineral Bath.” Check out Ohlendorf's fashions at the first annual Fashion Meets Film event this month. 

Model and health coach Tiffanie Ranea-Stevenson, told GoLocalPDX her beauty tip, saying that eating healthy is important because “you can never make up for improper nutrition.” 

Local Portland musician Thomas Yates of band Melville, said that the band (currently recording their first full-length LP) wants to be conscious of and perpetuate an image of professionalism.

See what these Portlanders had to say about their new year resolutions and secret beauty tips below.

New Year Resolutions: 

"For 2015, I resolve to always SHOP LOCAL. I want to spend my dollars and time, supporting our local designers and boutiques."

Thomas Yates, Bass Guitarist for Melville

New Year Resolutions: 

"In organizing our musical plan, we came to the realization that we want to project an image of understated professionalism. The reason for this is two-fold: First, we consider ourselves professional musicians. Second, we want our image to support the original music we make, not interfere with it. So, we have resolved to be conscious of, and perpetuate that image."
