2013 Beauty, Blogging and Lifestyle Resolutions

Happy New Year everybody! I guess it's time to make those all important promises to ourselves for 2013. Usually I'm not one to bother with resolutions, I usually forget about them or just turn into my lazy self again, but this year has to be different. In 12 months time on the 31st December, I want to actually feel happy with my body, feel like I've achieved something, and be at a content place in my life. Even if I don't keep to this longer-than-intended list of goals, I'll be satisfied if I manage to stick it out with a few. That's a change.

Blogging Resolutions
· Post at least twice a week
· Go to a bloggers meet-up
· Make a separate twitter for my blog
· Reach 200 published blog posts (currently on 82)
· Get talking to more bloggers
· Create some weekly features
· Post an outfit of the day
· Reach 30,000 views

Beauty Resolutions
· Only use make-up wipes after a night out
· Clean make-up brushes once a week
· Stop being lazy with moisturising my legs/arms
· Find a way to improve my skin
· Delve into hair products

Lifestyle Resolutions
· Drink more water
· Have a healthier life style and achieve some weight loss
· Change time management habits
· Keep a diary
· Get my university offers
· Get a B in my Sociology A Level
· Get a C in my History A Level
· Get into university
· Look for work experience in marketing/pr/advertising
· Get a job and save up money rather then spending it as soon as it hits the bank account
· Spend more time with my family
· Stop spending so much time sitting in my room on my laptop

· Ride a rollercoaster (why am I doing this to myself?!)
· Give blood
· Make a youtube video
· Tidy my room and actually maintain the tidiness for once (ha!)
· Be more experimental with fashion and don't just go for the 'practical' choices all the time
· Learn to drive
· Go to a festival in the summer
· Finish reading The Hunger Games and er, Fifty Shades of Grey (force* myself to)

Let's wait and see how this all pans out then, I'm rather excited about it all. I've even put a motivation sticky note on my desktop to remind myself not to be a disappointment! I'll only be disappointing myself, and that's one of the worst feelings. So it's January 1st, it's 2013, lets get cracking.

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.
What are your new years resolutions?
