2016 Resolutions


Looking back at my 2015 Resolutions and well… Some of them I accomplished... Some - like the 6 month spending ban, and shopping my stash before buying anything new… WENT COMPLETELY OUT THE WINDOW about 1 month in... haha BUT this year I am determined!

I have split my resolutions into the following categories: 

Blog Resolutions:

  • Up my posting to twice a week
  • Keep working on my photography skills
  • Post some make up looks (!!)
  • Be better at responding to comments from my lovely readers!
  • Collaborations with fellow bloggers

Beauty Resolutions:

  • Skincare – more specifically, a consistent regime of quality products; including regular facials from my local cosmetologist, Bette – she’s amazing!
  • Spending Ban – NO UNNESSCESARY BUYING (just because it’s pretty and shiny!)
  • Shop my stash – I have so much make-up, as evident from some of my collection posts (highlighter & eyeshadow palettes)
  • Project Pan – coming soon…

Personal Resolutions:

  • More Adventures - like weekend escapes or hiking
  • Spending Ban – learning to decipher between WANTS & NEEDS…
  • SAVE – for a house, for a holiday(s), and an emergency fund.
  • Read more quality books – not the trashy ones I have read time and time again.
  • Be more active - gym, boxing, walks with the dogs, gymnastics.
  • Go gluten free! Coeliac Disease runs in my family, so this a little bit preventative but also a lifestyle choice too.
  • Nail my back handspring & the splits - for those who don't know, I coach gymnastics to school age children - it's so much fun!!

Business Resolutions:

  • Practice, Practice Practice!
  • Advertise more locally.
  • Make alliances with other local businesses – hair & make-up deals etc
  • Practice some more!
  • Attend another masterclass or learning opportunity.

What are your resolutions for 2016? Did you achieve yours from 2015?

  1. So many amazing resolutions. I'm definitely focusing on decluttering my makeup collection so it is just what I use and love and no other junk or unnecessary items. I am also in the process of writing up a post about Project Pan!!! We should do it together yayyy! I have so many products that I want to get through which I think is actually achievable. Blushes and highlighters take way too long though!
