My 5 Beauty Resolutions | 2015

My 5 Beauty Resolutions | 2015
Hi lovelies happy New Year and hope you all had a nice Christmas - I know I have had way too many mince pies and alcohol over the break but that is a totally different post! I was hesitating for awhile about writing a New Year's resolution post because I never really make any I am much more of a 'do it when I want' kind of person, I never set myself goals just because it is a New Year. If there is something I want to do I will do it whenever I seem is best to. However I was inspired by a blogging chat on Twitter to create a 'beauty resolutions' post which if I remember correctly I created last year also the post is here - Which I did really well with so these are the beauty resolutions I am setting myself for 2015!

1. Use The Pretty, Special Makeup | Okay call me vain but there has been several times in the past I have purchased in/expensive products down to just being too darn pretty not to have 'cough cough' I am talking about you Charlotte Tilbury. I am terrible for purchasing these pretty products and then not using them because I don't want to ruin them - ridiculous I know. It gets to the point where I forget I even own some makeup items because I abandon them. So I've decided to stop being such a pansy and use those pretty, special products because there is just no point in buying makeup for it to be thrown at the back of my drawer.

2. Stick At My Routines | Over the Christmas I sort of gave up with my skincare I would take my makeup off and that would be it no cleanse or nothing. My skin started to react to this (nasty breakouts!) which was a sign that my skin needed more attention. I sometimes go through lazy stages with my skin because I get bored of sticking with my routine, (skincare routine will be up one day soon!) I have quite a decent morning/evening routine but like I said I get bored easily therefore I stop at times. I've told myself to stick at my routine otherwise my skin will just keep breaking out.

3. De-clutter The Clutter | Similar to number 1 I buy things and then forget I own them and this builds up more and more to the point where I have drawers full of products that have been used several times then replaced. It is sad products don't deserve to be abandoned or if I am being realistic here my money doesn't deserve to be wasted! (being a student is hard at times!). So I think it's about time I de-clutter all of the products from my drawer and start using them up rather than constantly buy more and more!

4. Change Routines Up | Total differentiation to number 2 I know but I am talking about hair here not skincare. When I was jotting down my 2014 favourites I realized I have not changed much of my hair care if anything I still religiously use the same products. Which isn't a bad thing but, as just mentioned I get bored easily when it comes to beauty. So I think I should maybe change my hair care routine up a little whether that is my products or my hairstyle itself because I am starting to get a little bored of it. Any ideas feel free to tell me some.

5. Stop Getting Bored Easily | This one makes me laugh because all I have went on about is being bored but yes I am setting myself a resolution not to get bored of products. Because if I get bored of products this happens: boredom = purchase new products = eventually get bored of new products. It is a forever circle. I don't get bored off everything I use of course but products I do get bored of over time is skin and haircare. So instead of wasting products by disregarding them in my drawers I have told myself to use these products up before I even consider purchasing something else. Seems an okay deal to myself right?

Whether I stick at these resolutions is a mystery that we will soon discover at the end of the year. I would like to think I can stick to these resolutions because a lot of them involve waste which isn't an option when it comes to beauty products but we shall soon see!

What are your beauty resolutions??

  5. I love them and it's so easy to forget about the expensive, gift makeup but there never seems to be enough special occasions for it all!
    The resolutions are really true as well and I hope you stick with them.
    Can't wait to read next year to see if you did!

  6. This post made me laugh because I absolutely agree with every single one of them haha! But especially number one, I don't use half of my makeup because it's higher-end and I don't want to waste it, but then I'm wasting it by NOT using it too! The hard life of a beauty addict, ey?

  11. Its so difficult sticking to a skincare routine when you see such amazing reviews of products on other blogs! I blame beauty bloggers for tempting me!

    1. I know I do too but one you nail that skincare routine you tend to not always look at other bloggers reviews. I mean I do but not as much as I used to now I've found mine x

  12. It's so funny that there are so many girls, that agree with your first resolution. I have to admit, I'm one of them. For me this doesn't only happen when it comes to beauty products. For example, in the past I used to collect cute rubbers that I didn't want to use. They're still somewhere...

  13. My main one would be to change up my makeup more. Constantly using the same products day in and day out, you wouldn't believe I have tubs and tubs of other makeup!!

  19. I'm so so guilty of not using, or even touching pretty products. I guess subconsciously we don't want to hit the pan/use it up and have to get rid of the gorgeous packaging!

  24. Totally agree with getting bored of new products, sometimes it only takes me a week of using it and it goes to the back of the drawer! And the one about not wanting to use the nice products in case you ruin them is so true.

  26. I regularly get bored of products and go in search for an alternative too, but I seem to stick to the products that wow me, so maybe we just need to focus on products that wow? (although finishing up what we own first would also be a great start) xx

  28. I'll definitely understand what you mean about not always using the expensive make-up, I have an Estee Lauder blush that I hardly use but this year I'll crack it out more so it was worth buying in the first place! I hope you manage to stick to all your resolutions! xx
