Lil Miss Refreshed: New Years Resolutions *

Experiment with makeup
I have a lot of makeup. I hardly use a lot of it - i tend to stick to the same things every day and every night. I always watch youtube tutorials but I never ever try them out. Obviously I won't be wearing this fairy look for everyday, but I'm going to start experimenting with different looks :) 

Spend less on skincare
I'm going to spend less on skin care. I have used my skin as a test subject this year - trying out lots of different skin care products in order to achieve perfect skin. This has made my skin worse; I'm going to stick to what I've got and aim to improve my diet. You can only rely so much on skin care products.

Try out Nars makeup
I have always wanted to try out Nars makeup! It is quite pricey but I'm only planning on purchasing a few blushers from that line, mainly: Nars Torrid, Luster and Sin. Thanks to Emma for the inspiration :) xx

Work out atleast four times a week
 I really want to work out more than 4 times a week. I want to be able to fit into a bikini for the summer. I'm currently using the 30 day shred, Jillian Michaels Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism, and 10 minute solutions Burn off Belly Fat. This Christmas break has made me so lazy! When I'm working or at uni I work out when I get home, I want to get back into the routine because I always feel super amazing after I exercise.

Keep organised
I do keep my room tidy at all times but I'm not that organised. I always forget things for uni and work. My aim is to set my bag as soon as I get home from work/uni.

Keep an accounts diary
I want to keep an accounts diary for 2011. I am more of a saver than a spender (believe it or not) but I really want to know where most of my money is going. I used to keep an accounts diary before but I was far too lazy to update it.

Control my moods
During a certain time of the month, I become really moody! I also get moody when I am frustrated (e.g. when I can't get something to work). Apart from that I'm incredibly sweet  and I am usually happy and smiling:) I want to be able to control my anger and stop taking it out on others. I know it's extremely hard when you're on PMS but I'm going to have to force myself.

Be more confident.

I can be incredibly shy sometimes. Also, when people compliment me I always tend to dismiss the compliment and end up saying something horrible about myself. E.g someone said I looked nice, I said 'it's just the makeup, I'm actually quite vile''. I hate the fact that I'm like this! I think it's probably due to the fact that I was bullied in my teens (it did not make me stronger). I'm only confident and loud around the people I love the most. I want to be like this all the time. I'm currently reading a Paul Mckenna book about confidence and it really is helping. I also want to stop worrying about what other people think of me, argh I hate being so paranoid!
