I’ve seen a couple of bloggers post their beauty related resolutions so I thought I’d share mine too. It’d be interesting to refer back to this post this time next year to see if I’ve stuck to any of these. Maybe a leopards spots can change, while we’re all hazy on new years motivation with the fire in our bellies at full blast to prove ourselves and others wrong.
The wind outside is most definitely angry and unrelenting jeez.
Anyway so here are my goals and aims for this year and beyond,
— To not purchase new products that aren’t finished or close to even running out – except lipsticks and eyeshadows because they’re probably gonna outlive me, let’s be real. I think I’ve only ever used up one lipstick in my entire life. It was a YSL one, fyi. I think this one is gonna be a toughy but I’m hoping this will build my willpower, curb my impulse buying and force myself to get creative with what I have already.
— I’m going to save up my Boots points and then treat myself to something nice at the end of the year. It’s something I’ve seen other people do and I thought I’m gonna give it a try and see what the balance will total up to, instead of using it as back up credit for a ‘free’ lunch though it has come in handy plenty a times whilst I was at uni.
— I say this one to myself all the time, especially when it gets really bad but I should seriously stop picking my spots, I have a medium skin tone and whenever I pick a spot this horrid brown scar develops and it stays put indefinitely. I have no idea why but lately my skin has been flaring up like crazy and most of my right cheek and chin has been taken over and now my forehead seems to be getting in on the action too, not a good look. Resisting popping a spot, especially when it’s just ripe is self control I just don’t have (yet.) GIVE ME STRENGTH BEAUTY GODS.
— Moisturise more than just my face, suddenly as I’ve gotten older slathering lotion on my whole body has become an absolute chore and one I use to be able to do without fail after a wash. I’ve gotten so lazy with this, that when my skin starts to get rough I just whip out the body scrub and be done with that business. It’s a great toofer (2 for 1), clean and soft, baby. But in all seriousness I need to use my moisturisers and keep that bod smoother than sandpaper for more than a day.
I would love to hear what your beauty ambishes are for this year so if you have written a post please link it in the comments!
P.s Is any one else really excited for the final season of Parks and Rec?! I CANNOT CONTAIN MYSELF. I’M SCREAMING.
