2014 Blogging resolutions

I am not one to make New Year’s resolutions because I end up not following though with them by about late January/Early February, so instead I am going to share with you my 2014 blogging resolutions.

Unfortunately, I totally didn’t follow through with my 2013 blogging resolutions, but with a bit of time management and discipline, hopefully next year I will!

1. Create and (try to) stick to a blogging schedule. I have a few ideas on how to achieve this, one being to have a ‘series’ of posts that I post on a certain day every week…hopefully, I will bring back my FOTD Friday posts and maybe my Swatch Saturday posts (they will be less often though)
2. Publish more fashion posts
. This was one of my 2013 resolutions, which I failed at…badly. Again, I have an idea how I can try to stick to this. I will be attending my local Westfield’s fashion festivals again next year, but they are only seasonal (about 2 times a year), so I will have to post some other things in between.
3. Buy less makeup and experiment more with looks. Okay, so buying less makeup is kind of a regular resolution, but it relates to my blog too. Experimenting with looks, this was also a blogging resolution that I made last New Year. I still seem to stick to neutral/nude makeup because it is ‘safe’ and easy. A few months ago I did the FoxInFlats red lipstick dare and it really made me want to wear red lipstick more regularly! Which I plan to do in 2014.
4. More makeup tutorials. I do post tutorials on my blog from time to time, but I think I want to start doing more in-depth step by step tutorials (with photos).
5. Actually write up reviews when I mention them. I got into the habit of writing ‘review coming soon’ and then I ended up forgetting or the ‘new’ products were no longer new.

Will you be making any blogging resolutions for 2014? let me know what they are below 🙂

By the way, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Boxing day!

Simple Christmas manicure: featuring Bio Sculpture nail polish

 It has taken me almost a week to decide what Christmas manicure I wanted to create, after a lot of searches on pinterest and google, I finally came up with (last minute) the design below.

L-R #2058 Desert Sunset, #107 Her Majesty, #93 Golden Silver

The three Bio Sculpture gel polishes were kindly sent to me on behalf of Bio Sculpture. The shades are as follows:

#2058 Desert Sunset– A bright red-orange shimmer, great for summer and a bit different than your blue based red for Christmas. Orange is my least favourite colour (ever haha), but I was pleasantly surprised with this shade. It looks just as the name suggest, like a sunset.
#107 Her Majesty– Gold glitter, there’s not much I can say about this shade as it’s pretty self explanatory. Though, I will say that it is the first glitter polish that I have been able to get off with a nail polish remover wipe (with not much effort either!)
#93 Golden Silver– Brushed stainless steel shimmer, this applies like it is ‘brushed’, but it’s not streaky. I love that it is a darker silver, I haven’t got a shade anything like it!

I will be back with a couple more Christmas posts over the next week
