My New Year's Beauty Resolutions

1. Actually floss sometimes
If I meet someone who consistently flosses, then I feel like they really have their life together. Who remembers to floss every night, and isn't too lazy to skip doing it? I recently bought some flossing sticks so that I don't have to use regular floss that strangles your fingertips. The more convenient it is, the more likely I am to stick with it. I think my teeth will thank me.

2. Try a variety of hairstyles
I usually stick to wearing my hair down and straight. However, I see so many adorable, probably-not-as-easy-as-they-seem hairstyles on Pinterest. I have pinned many of them, but my ratio of pinning hairstyles to actually trying those hairstyles is about 400 to 10. 2015 will be the year of waterfall braids and messy buns.

3. Use less heat on my hair
As I mentioned, I usually wear my hair straight, which requires my flat iron. I use my hair dryer most days as well. I know that this really isn't great for my hair, and I plan to use less heat on my hair. Trying different hairstyles will help, since I will learn cute new updos. Side note: how annoying is it when you find an updo that requires you to curl your hair first?! If I was looking for a style that required taking that much time, I would just wear my hair curly. Anyway, I think less heat will mean healthier hair and more time for crafting.

4. Wear my glasses more often
I have a pair of stylish glasses that I barely wear outside of late night Netflix watching. I plan to rock them more often. I am near-sighted and proud!

5. Wear red lipstick
I almost never wear bold lip color. I am young, so I think I will channel my inner Taylor Swift and take advantage of loud lip color while I can.

This year, I will have really clean teeth and trendy hair! What are your beauty resolutions?


  1. I actually managed the third one during this past semester. I have naturally "relaxed" hair (not quite straight), so I completely cut out the flat iron when I learned how to dry my hair straight! My hair is so much healthier now. I only use "extra heat" on my hair when I curl it.

    1. Hi Courtney! That is awesome! I need to learn how to dry my hair straight. I would love to cut out the time and damage that using a flat iron causes. Thanks for stopping by!


  2. Great goals. My beauty resolutions would be to try and find some hairstyles for my ultra thin hair and to experiment more with my make up.

    1. Hi Kimberley! I would love to experiment more with my makeup, too. It is so easy to get into a rut of doing the same makeup routine every day. Thanks for reading!


  3. Love your resolutions! :-) I am with you on the red lip -- before a couple of weeks ago, I would NEVER wear anything super bright, especially red. But this winter I decided to just go for it....and I ended up really liking it. :-) Red lips are a big statement 'piece' of your makeup and I found I could go pretty simple on the rest of my makeup and still look glam. (Good thing to keep in mind for whenever you're running late! :-)

    The hard part is finding that red that looks good for your skintone.That took me a few tries. :-)

      I agree, I love how glam a simple red lip looks! It gives me confidence. Thanks for stopping by!
