Just to warn, this is a very text heavy post - but I hope you enjoy none the less :)
So it's that time of the year again, most of us wont keep them for more than a week, some wont even keep them past the day. Whether it's to stop smoking, lose weight or to give up drinking (alcohol of course!) everyone has been there, right? Well this year I am making bargains with myself to make them happen, every New Year I say I'm going to lose weight, I'm going to be more organised, but with no goal/reason to do it, I have never succeeded. So with all the resolutions and targets in place, I shall begin.
(1) Probably the most popular NY resolution. To lose weight. LOL I say this year, and never succeed, mainly because I think I am too easily influenced by other people. One chocolate wont make a difference, another slice wont hurt, and BAM your off the wagon. bad times. Also I think you have to have the right frame of mind, if you feel like crap chances are you wont follow through with it. So... I am in a happy place in my life, ready to take the plunge and joining my local Weight Watchers meeting on Wednesday :) FUN TIMES. (I have also been chatting to a few people on twitter about our aims and we are all going to be supporting each other, so come and join in @LCCxox.) I have done WW before and (obviously) failed, but again I don't think I had the right frame of mind. But I do have my graduation coming up in June and I want to wear a fab dress for it, obviously from a brand that doesn't do my size now, to make me feel even better ;)
(2) To look after my skin better. Now I have my clarisonic (Post coming soon) this will make it so much easier, I am sick of my skin just looking a bit... YUCK, so I will be using my enlarged toothbrush twice a day with my Superdrug Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser (Obviously without the cloth!) to make sure my skin is in tip top condition.
(3) Curb my spending. Being such an avid reader of beauty blogs and watcher of Youtube videos, means that people become enablers telling you to buy this and this and this oh and while your in their this as well. I usually would think nothing of spending £50 in Boots/Superdrug on a normal day just picking up 'essentials' but in all honestly, I have enough skincare, make up, hair care and nail polish to sink a very large battle ship and I am running out of room, and to be frank. It all costs so much money! So unless its a necessity ie. I need it, I'm not buying, with the exception of limited edition items I think, that would be awful I think ;)
I think that's it for now LOL, I think it's quite enough to get my teeth into. Have you made any new years resolutions? I'd love to hear them :)
Wishing you all the best for 2012 and your resolutions
