So, Christmas is over and 2010 is just around the corner I thought it would be a good time to think about my new year resolutions (beauty-wise, of course).
1. Sort out my cuticles
I have a nightmare with my cuticles. This is mostly my own fault as I have a bit of a habit of picking at them (gross, I know). This year I plan to look after them and get them into a much better condition by the end of the year.
2. Be a bit more ‘polished’
This covers a few things, including getting (or giving myself) regular manicures and pedicures plus being a bit more regular with my fake-tanning – to avoid my weekly tan/pale/tan/pale routine. Using a gradual tanner every other day is the way forward.
3. Look after my hair
This mainly boils down to not going longer than 8 weeks without a haircut (or at least a trim). I also want to do a weekly deep conditioning treatment plus never use heat on my hair without a protecting product.
I was going to add in a resolution to not buy stuff that I don’t need, but then I didn’t want to be ridiculous….. so instead I thought I would throw in a couple that aren’t beauty-related:
4. Buy more classic clothes rather than trends
I had a huge wardrobe clear-out this year and have got rid of anything that I never wear. Some of this includes stuff I haven’t really worn and even some bits that I love but just doesn’t suit or flatter me. So I was ruthless and got rid of loads of stuff, donating it to charity shops after giving my friends first dibs on some stuff. I plan to continue keeping my wardrobe a bit more streamlined this year, by only buying classic, decent quality items rather than cheap trends.
5. Exercise more
I’m no gym bunny (understatement) but plan to incorporate some exercise into my life this year.
