Dear Homies,

If you need a mantra for 2023, choose Flourish. It is a word that breathes optimism and hope, focuses on positivity, and at its core promises growth and abundance.

It may have seemed rash for some when we came up with Flourish as the spiritual core of Boysen Color Trend 2022/23 in early 2022, After all, the Covid virus was still very much top of mind at the time. However, the Boysen Color Team was unstoppable at christening the palette Flourish and naming its four color palettes Breathe, Move, Bloom, and Live.

For many of us, life opened up with new possibilities when the pandemic restrictions eased. This is not to say that we are no longer faced with challenges. It will take time. World affairs also do not help our local situation, what with volatile fuel prices, inflation, supply chain disruptions, and so on. But when the going gets tough, it is best to take one day at a time…one hour…one minute…one second.

BREATHE. MOVE. BLOOM. LIVE. These palettes represent the four natural elements essential to life…

AIR. WATER. EARTH. FIRE. When you manifest your most beautiful 2023, turn to these four natural elements for guidance.

Happy New Year’s Eve Wishes to You

I am not sure what I will do this New Year’s Eve. I used to look forward to partying and  staying up until after midnight and have fun with family and friends. But during these times, I just want to enjoy wonderful food with my besties, maybe talk about the past year, maybe not. Definitely, there will be no discussions of New Year’s Resolutions. I never had those and I don’t intend to start. I just want intimate, slow, deeply thoughtful discussions interspersed with fun and laughter.

And you, what are your plans for Media Noche? Will you be staying awake to greet the New Year and have fireworks to drive away evil spirits?

Year 2023

May you flourish in the coming New Year! May you be blessed with good health, love, peace, and abundance.
