Here goes... my "beauty" resolution =P

Hi guys!

I thought it'd be fun (?) to start off the year with a resolutions post???? These are not new year's resolution to be exact... I kind of already started on them last year (why wait till new year lol I just do it whenever) but why not share them anyway since I saw some new year's resolutions posts going on =P

1. Use up ALL my foundations.
I have too many -_- NOT buying a new one until I use them all up. This is my biggest beauty ambition!!!!!! But I can still cheat by trying samples ;p

2. Maintain my weight
Officially at 46 kg (101.2 lb). Done with losing weight XD I haven't seen my chest this flat since middle school (seriously most of my weight loss was probably my boobs). I want to maintain ideally at 47kg if not lower. 48kg at most.

3. Use up ALL my current skincare before I buy new ones
Again... have too much. Full size products AND samples alike. Although I've been quite good; have used up a lot of products so far. Will work on an "empty" post :)

4. Use up at least one lipstick.
This is gonna be hard -_- I probably had  like 5 lipsticks before mid-2012 but once I got into it my lipstick collection exploded. Best bet probably will be the Revlon lip butters, MAC ravishing and Rouge Dior Nude. I shall make it happen!!!!

5. Dress up more (aka get out of hoodies/tank tops/sweatpants)
Errr... don't have a pic for this XD so I'm putting an old pic of me wearing red lippie instead XD I always forget to take pics -_-||| just don't have the habit of taking pics all the time. Maybe I should start doing it but I'm kind of in the moment kind of person.
Actually I did pretty good... until winter hits -____-|||| Don't know how to dress cute for winter

6. Keep working out
Was doing pretty good but kind of slacked off toward the end of the year... T_T
Can anyone recommend a good workout DVD? (I've done Insanity, P90X, 30-Day Shred and a bunch of other Jilian ones. If you have anything else please share ^_^)

7. Wear perfume more often
Cuz... don't have the habit to. And really want to try to use them up so I can buy a new one (been really really wanting Marc Jacobs' "Dot" >_< ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh) but I feel like my taste has changed drastically in the last few months and none of these smell right to me anymore =(

PS: I don't own the Burberry one, I stole the box from my roommate cuz it was so pretty and she was about to throw it out XD

8. STOP shopping at Forever 21
Because!!! 85% of my closet is from Forever 21 -___________- can't step into the store without having at least one item from them. I AM DETERMINED TO BRANCH OUT and challenge my style. Even if it means I have to spend more on clothes??? T__T I guess it's time for the good ol' "no sale no buy" -_-"

Erm... that's all the beauty resolutions I can think of -_-a nothing's new, really. Nothing that I haven't already been doing except probably the perfume one (cuz they don't fit my mood T_T).

By the way... I found this picture when I was sorting through my old pictures a while ago.
This was my makeup collection 4 years ago (late 2009). LOL I remember I was so pleased that I dedicated a basket to my makeup. Lol such a ghetto setup. And now I just have way too much crap XD
Although you can see... I was already using Majolica Majorca mascara/primer at that time ;) still using them =D
Ummmmm.... conclusion. This was such a pointless post. HAHAHA. Errr hope you guys enjoy? O_O

Have a great day guys =D

  1. i want to use up my foundations and bb creams too! and i agree!!! It's so hard to use up one single lipstick! *ahh!!! I recently did a make up collection post too just to wrap up 2012 and I noticed how everything exploded since my 2010 post! Thanks for sharing this, I love looking at make up collections! =D

    1. Lol!! So glad I'm not the only one! And I see all these girls on Youtube who buys backups O_O how do they do thattttt

  2. I don't think this is pointless! I actually like to read everyone else's beauty resolutions. I haven't made up any of my own and these give me inspirations :P
    Just wondering, how do you plan to use up all those foundations? I have a lot of base products too and I never seem to get anywhere close to finishing any...
    I totally agree!! It is so hard to be motivated to dress up in the winter. Hoodie and sweats are so comfy and warm :X I just ended up getting a few more sweaters to wear with colorful pants.
    If you can successfully branch out of F21 clothes, let me know where you're shopping next! My closet is pretty much all F21 and American Eagle xD

    1. Haha! err... great question... O_O I'll prob start using my beautyblender to begin with... that will soak up a good amount of product XD other than that... just persistence I guess O_o"

      color pants with sweaters <-- that's what I do when I run out of sweatpants to wear XD

      Hahahaha ok I will!! so far I'm clueless... want to shop at ASOS but too scared to buy online =/

  3. Ooh is that the Skin79 gold BB cream i see? :3 I have it too!! :D And wow you have so many lip products xD And looool how things change in 4 years xD Nice post I enjoyed it :)
    ps I have peach parfeit, which is kinda sparkly, so I was hoping for a matte pink or red. thanks for your reccomendations~ I'll check them out :)

    1. yes it is =P I love that BB cream!
      I didn't pick up peach parfait precisely for that reason! I don't like glitters in my lip products. You might enjoy Candy Apple which is an orangy red, or Red Velvet which is a deep, rich red :)

  4. i should definitely use up all my makeup as well, haha! i really shouldn't buy new ones until i finish the ones i already have. ;)

  5. I liked reading your about your health journey. :D It was entertaining and motivating for me. For fitness videos, you should try Blogilates. She's great.

    1. hehe thanks! then I think you'll be glad to hear I'm working on another fitness/weight loss post :D I just discovered Blogilates earlier this month! she's incredible! thanks for the suggestion nonetheless ^_^
