My 2013 New Year's Beauty Resolutions.

I'm usually quite anti-New Year's resolutions. I just find resolutions like 'I'm going to go to the gym everyday' or 'no more ice cream' are ridiculously impossible for me to keep. I prefer resolutions that will transition into long-term self-improvements, not ones that simply mask themselves as drastic, but temporary, changes.

I've made a few self-improvement type of resolutions this year that I won't bore you with, but this is also the first year I will officially be making beauty-related resolutions as well:

1. Drink (much) more water. Period.

2. Invest more in quality products and significantly less in 'cheap and cheerful' ones that I'll never use again....although, those are fun every now and again too ;)

3. Shift some of the focus of my beauty lens a tiny bit away from makeup and onto skincare. There is no foundation like gorgeous skin.

And that's it, really! Hopefully, with only 3 resolutions to focus on this year, I'll be able to keep them up. Either way, you know I'll keep you guys updated along the way ;)


Do you like to make New Year' resolutions? If so, what are they this year?

  3. Tons of water has been a resolution I've kept. I drink almost too much of it! In turn, your skin will thank you. Another good tip for good skin is less dairy! You should try it - there was a significant difference in my skin when I cut out cheese and milk, so crazy! Happy New Year doll ! Xoxox

  4. I really like 3, it's a good idea for most people.
    My resolutions are more bucket list-ish for example get my driving license, buy a Polaroid camera and learn conversational Italian. All things I can reasonably do and achieve, their more about focus.

  8. Love these. I think one of mine should be to wash my brushes on a slightly more regular basis and maybe buy a few more of the brushes I use constantly so that this is a realistic goal. x

  9. I love your resolution to drink more water. I grew up hearing "8-10 glasses a day," then was told 1 gallon a day, then read 1/2 oz per lb of body weight. But I never feel (or look!) better than when I consistently drink 1 gallon a day.

  10. Totally agree with you with all of your resolutions. I definitely need to follow 3!

  11. here here!! i definitely need to drink more water .. i find that 'spicing' it up by adding sprits of lemon or making ice teas helps. and as silly as it sounds .. investing in a pretty drink bottle that i can put in my bag has forced me to drink more. good luck =)

  12. I applaud your three resolutions. I myself am thinking of improving things I do, as I don't feel there is much to 'resolve'. Skincare is going to be huge this year, I can't wear much make up at school and hence I'm going to focus on skincare too. I need to spend less on make up bits too, need to consider where the extra saved could go towards in the future! Great post, appreciate you sharing these goals.

  13. My dear,

    I found your blog by chance, while peeking
    others and I decided to check it out! I’m glad I did it, because I am really delighted with yours. It's beautiful,
    well structured, interesting… and it has completely got me hooked. I think
    we're going to get along just fine! ;) I'd like to invite you to meet my space
    as well and I hope you'll have as much fun as I am having in yours!

    I wish you
    lots of success

    kisses

  15. Hi ! I love your blog ! :) I'm so glad to hear you're going to focus more on skin care, there's nothing like being able to focus your makeup on making it part of your outfit instead of having to put all attention on using it to cover stuff up ! One of my areas of expertise is guiding people to which types of makeup, hair care and skin care can be causing breakouts, and what to do about breakouts once you get them. Any way I can help you, I'd love to keep in touch ! :)
