Well, hello there! I’ve missed you, blogosphere! This past holiday season kicked my butt, with school coming to an end (2 weeks left, eek!) and holiday hours at work, it unfortunately cut into my blogging time. Now that things are calming down a bit, I’m ready to be back!
I’m going to kick off this years first blog post with my . . .
1) Regularly deep clean my makeup brushes.
This is such a hard one! I’m pretty diligent with my daily cleaning, using the Sephora daily brush cleaner. When it comes to a good deep cleaning (I like to use baby shampoo and a sponge), I should be doing it once a week. In reality… it doesn’t happen near that often. Which, I know, is gross. Don’t judge me.
2) Never sport chipped nail polish.
A huge pet peeve, but I’m so guilty of rocking the chipped mani on many occasions. It can usually be blamed on my laziness and not wanting to take a short 3 minutes out of my day to remove it. What can I say, I enjoy my uninterrupted “me” time. So much that I’ll let my nails suffer for it. However, now that I’m becoming a “professional” in the beauty industry, I touch people’s faces a lot. And no one wants to have a skuzzy hand on their money-maker. I’m already off to a good start with this resolution though, I’ve started to do my own gel manicures. More about that later.
3) Keep up with my beauty blog.
Perhaps my biggest resolution for this year. I truly love writing for this blog, and I’ve invested so much time and money into it. However, if you’re a blogger (of any sort), you know that it sometimes can get the best of you. I was updating every day there for a while, and while I felt very accomplished, this started to feel like a chore that I didn’t want to do. Now that’s I’ve taken a step back for a bit, I’m ready to get back here and back to doing what I love.
I hope you guys had a great New Years! What are some of your beauty resolutions for 2013?
