My New Year's Resolutions

If you don't write them down and tell someone about them, then they won't happen right? Well, I'm going to tell you my New Year's Resolutions this year. I kept my big resolution (get healthy and lose weight) last year by keeping you informed. Maybe this year I can do a bit of the same.
  • Health: Learn to maintain my weight - once I get to my goal, I have to stay there. I have no doubt that this will be the hardest thing in my weight loss journey, but I also know I have all of you behind me.
  • Makeup: Use what I have more often - I have so much make up now, so many nail polishes, and most of it doesn't get used. I will have to go through my stash, hold a blog sale at some point. And I need to use what I have more often. I know this doesn't get as many readers - people like to see new collections. But seriously, I'm not getting much for free so I can't afford to put money into makeup like that.
  • Life: Three drinks at a party... no more! - I've cut my intake of food a lot this year. My body isn't metabolizing alcohol the way it did at 200 lbs. I can't drink like I used to and I need to accept that and get on with it. 
  • Blog: Don't let the mean people get to me - It's hard. We all deal with it, anyone who blogs. I need to grow a thicker skin. 
  • Blog: Don't get pressured to get things out fast - get them out RIGHT- This is mostly in the area of polishes and nails. I need to have the patience to get things out so they look good. Even the crappy colors. Maybe this means purchasing a new camera or creating a light box, but I have to improve. I will never be a Temptalia, All Lacquered Up, or Vampy Varnish or countless others I adore. But I can strive to have this blog be the best version of what it is.
 Change happens slowly. I will make mistakes. I have always been open about that.
