These concerts are an awesome way to close out the year and make memories that you won’t soon forget. Victory North owner, Dr. Mohamed Eldibany invites locals to finish the year with these fun live acts.

Victory North talent buyer Brian Goldman is also excited for these performances.
“Electric Avenue and Funk You are two of my favorite bands that have previously performed at Victory North. They both put on incredible, high-energy live shows and the fans always go crazy during their performances. I can’t think of a better one-two punch to end the year,” he said.

The FlowHow to Keep New Year’s Resolutions
Every New Year, millions of Americans and multitudes around the world make their New Year’s resolutions, committing to change for the better in all sorts of ways. Unfortunately, the vast majority of those people abandon their resolutions by February. The reasons that resolutions fail are as diverse as the people who make them. But there are practical steps you can take to make committing to your resolutions more likely. If you want to see your resolutions go the distance in 2023, try these helpful tips. 
Be realistic.
One of the primary reasons resolutions fail is because they are overly ambitious. Be realistic about what’s possible in one year. For example, you might not be able to eliminate all of your debt in just one year. But you can certainly cut down on it. Resolutions that are too far removed from reality are almost certain to fail. Instead of opting for radical change, focus on smaller goals that you can accomplish through habitual action over time. 
Be specific.
When a goal is specific, it’s measurable. And when a goal is measurable, you can easily determine what success is. Instead of having a nebulous resolution like losing weight, attach a specific value to it. How much weight do you want to lose? (remember to be realistic.) When do you want to have lost it by? How are you going to measure your results?Considering questions like these will help you set specific and measurable goals that are easier to stick with than something more vague.
Have someone to hold you accountable.
When you go at your resolutions alone, if you quit, the only person it matters to is you. But if you work towards your resolutions with a partner or a group, there are more people to hold you accountable. That external encouragement and communal commitment can make all the difference when it comes to sticking to your resolutions. So, try to find at least one person who can help keep you accountable as you pursue your resolutions.
Reward yourself.
Set milestones and reward yourself. Say you have a goal of reading at least one book a month in the New Year (remember to be specific), do something to celebrate after each completed book. The dopamine hit and warm fuzzy feels can give you extra motivation to stay the course.
The GlowFive Skin Care Tips to Keep You Glowing this Winter
Winter officially starts on Wednesday, Dec. 21, and we’ve already seen temperatures drop over the last few weeks. Though winters in the South are relatively mild, the changing weather can impact your skin in a number of ways. Cold winter air can dry your skin out, compromising your complexion. Fortunately, there are easy things you can do to protect your skin from the damaging effects of winter. If you want to keep glowing all season long, give these skincare tips a try. 
1. Moisturize more often.
Your skin is prone to be drier during the winter months. To combat this, invest in an oil-based moisturizer. Look for thicker moisturizers containing ceramides and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients will help seal in moisture in your skin. Also be sure to moisturize from the inside out by drinking water frequently. 
2. Use a hydrating cleanser.
Harsh cleaners tend to strip the skin of its natural moisture. Instead, opt for gentle, hydrating cleansers that won’t disrupt the skin’s natural moisture. Avoid drying ingredients like glycolic or salicylic acid. And be sure to moisturize skin immediately after cleansing. 
3. Stick to lukewarm water.
It can be tempting to take a nice, long hot bath or shower during the cold days of winter. But by doing so, you’re actually doing your skin a disservice. Hot water disrupts the natural oils on your skin, causing it to dry out further. Use lukewarm water when showering and bathing to avoid skin irritation. 
4. Exfoliate.
Exfoliate regularly to remove dry, dead skin cells and reveal smooth, supple skin. But don’t use harsh scrubs. Opt for gentle, moisturizing scrubs that contain lactic acid, which acts as a humectant, drawing moisture into the skin. 
5. Continue to use sunscreen. 
Though the sunlight may not seem as bright or hot as it was during the summer, UV rays are still present. Don’t skimp on sunscreen. Keep using it throughout the winter to ensure your skin stays protected.
