- i'm not going to buy any new makeup this year. i have a LOT of makeup that i don't even wear now, so i'm going to try to use what i have and not spend any more money on eye shadows and lipsticks that will just sit around looking pretty. i will make one exception though: mascara. i have a lot of little sample size ones my sister hooked me up with, and when i go through all of those i'll buy more. i do love mascara, and that's one thing i do actually wear a lot of.
- in the same vein, i'm not going to buy any clothes. i know, crazy, right? here's the thing: i tend to buy stuff i don't wear, and i tend to wear the same four outfits. unless it's new underpants or socks, or clothes i need for work (scrubs), NO MORE. i have two pairs of paints, way too many tshirts, and let's face it, my days of going out are no more. unless something specifically wears out (like my pants), or i shrink, i'm going to put an embargo on new clothes. if i do need something new, i'm going to try to stick with thrifted stuff. oh, and i reserve the right to buy a different wedding dress and shoes to go with it. duh.
also, i have already gotten a haircut this year (meaning if i get two more i can cross that resolution off my list!) and have actually been working out on a regular basis. CRAZY. i know it's january, and i should wait to see how things go, but honestly? i'm feeling pretty good about the resolutions i made, and my effort to keep them. in short, i feel pretty good. except for one of my feet, which i bonked on an elliptical and bruised. that foot, it hurts.
