Real Housewife Roxy Earle spent New Year’s Day the way a lot of people would like to: lounging in a bathtub with a bottle of rosΓ©. Maybe she added the water later?

Alias Grace star Sarah Gadon decided to unplug from social media for a month:

TV personality Tanya Kim prepped for the night by flaunting her lengthy, just-done lashes:

While TV host Tracy Moore cuddled with her kids in bed and reflected on the year:

Looking back at 2017 I feel a huge amount of pride. Dealing boldly with difficult situations (usually I'm a runner), handling confrontation head-on (so uncomfortable), speaking up for myself, shaky voice and all (it's tough to have people not like you or your decisions), and stepping into new territory time and again fearlessly (lies! I had some fear). I kept so many deals with myself both personally and professionally that it's reinforced my belief and trust in me. Career-wise it was a watershed year as I stepped out of my comfort zone and achieved goals that had once been dreams. So what's ahead? I don't know. But I trust myself enough to know that you get back what you put out so leading by example is never a bad choice. Wishing you strength and abundance this year in your heart and in your homes. And wishing this planet of ours healing on all levels (political, environmental, racial etc…) #HappyNewYear #GoalSlayer #BelieveInYourself
