2012 & December Resolution Recap

Can you guys believe it is the end of 2012?! I sure can't! It has seriously snuck up on me! Here's a look at my resolutions for 2012. ALWAYS wash my face before falling asleep! Or at least use a makeup wipe! So... I have to admit, I'm still pretty terrible in this area. I do manage to use a wipe most nights, but yeah, in general, I am not good about washing my face. Wish the sink was by my bed, LOL!

Drink more water! I definitely succeeded in this one, YAY! I have fewer headaches, and feel better overall.

Accomplish at least one beauty challenge or no buy in the year. So I didn't accomplish full on no buys, but I definitely managed a few limited buys and a few weeks of no buys. Better than nothing!

Keep makeup area clean and organized Yeah... I still need to work on this. I think a weekly cleanup is what would really help make me stay organized, as things seem to pile up during the week.

Use as much of my collection as possible! Not as much as I would have hoped, but better than 2011.

Try some new brands (even though this won’t help with using up what I have!) Edward Bess, Jouer, and Hourglass are top brands on my list.Burberry and Le Metier de Beaute too! I fell in love with Burberry and Jouer, and definitely want more Hourglass. I need to take a better look at Edward Bess & Le Metier de Beaute!

Continue giving drugstore brands a chance! I definitely tried more drugstore stuff this year, and found some new favorites too! Wohoo!

So now you may remember that I gave myself some pretty ambitious resolutions for the month of December too...

While I started off the month strong, I definitely didn't manage to blog daily as exhaustion and the holidays caught up with me. I did manage to wear makeup almost everyday - I've only fallen off the boat since Christmas, and I wore perfume a handful of times too. Most importantly, while I did spend a bit on beauty, I did manage to spend less and I think almost stay within budget!

So, how do you think I did? How did you do on your resolutions this year?? I'd love to know! :)
