FOTD and New Year Resolutions

A Happy New Year to you all :)
Today, I actually managed to get myself out of pyjamas today and make myself presentable. We are going out as a family tonight as it is my Dad's birthday- there's a steak calling me :D So I thought I would make an effort

With and without flash. 
My Blackberry contract *finally* runs out in about 2 months time so I'm looking into getting a new phone with a decent camera and already have my eyes on a Samsung Xperia on T Mobile. I've been with Orange for years now and I've finally had enough-just way too expensive now. Definitely something I'm looking forward to in the new year, my Blackberry has been driving me round the bend!
*mobile rant over*

I liked this look as it is a wearable warm smoky eye done with bronzes and shimmery pale golds, mainly done with the Sleek Storm Palette. My eyes are quite round though and I think my eyes look huuuge in the first photo O_o, don't you?

So, every year these are made and I never keep them. 
I have self disciple as strong as a jellyfish's arm...
But this year, I've only given myself a few that I can actually stick to.

1) Walk more-
Stop using my car so much when I'm at home and stop getting the bus back  to halls when I'm at uni. I do actually really enjoy walking, especially if I have my iPod on me. Laziness just gets the better of me the majority of the time.

2) Wear jeans less
Bit of an odd one but I really want to move away from wearing jeans so much. They're my go to item in the morning when the majority of my clothes would look just as good with a skirt. I will definitely have to be investing in more tights though.

3) Find a skin routine that works for me and damn well stick to it
I've always struggled with my skin. It's not terrible but it could be a whole lot better and I have a lot to answer for. People often say my skin is fine, to which I reply I've had plenty years practice hiding it. Either way, the Liz Earle is shaping up to be a winner so I might be on track with this one already!

And there we have it. I have a niggling feeling there was one more but if I've forgotten it already, it can't have been that important...
What are your New Year's resolutions?




  2. I should definitely walk more too, and wear jeans less! You look lovely - I love your eyebrows x

  3. You have such pretty hair :) I wish mine was curly!
