A Look Back at My 2015 New Year Resolutions

A look back on my 2015 new year resolutions

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas but now that 2015 is coming to the end. In January, I posted my new year resolutions for 2015. I think it's time to share how well (or not well) they went. I would also like to take the time and say Thank You for every follow, like and comment. You don't know how grateful I am and how happy it makes me. 

one. Post twice a week 
I didn't really achieve this all year, I've had a couple of months where I posted twice and week and other months where I haven't even posted.

two. continue to enjoy blogging 
Although I didn't really complete no. 1, to me this one is more important. I prefer to be happy with every blog post I publish rather than post lots and not be happy with them. Out of the posts I've published, I really enjoyed producing them and I hope you liked them too.
Back in April, I got a new blog design so that make me love my blog again when I fell out of love with it.

one. Create a skincare routine and stick to it & have more no makeup days
Overall I'm most pleased with this one as this year I've seen a massive difference in my skin, it's still not perfect, but it's getting there. This is the help to creating a very skincare routine and not changing it for a couple of months and also picking up the courage and going to the doctors, they have prescribed me medication for me. The next thing to fix are my scars that have been left - anyone knows any great products?
Each weekend I find myself wearing no makeup with I think has helped to improve my skin massively.

two. Take more pictures
This one was more about using my camera to its full potential. I would say I have defiantly improved my photography from last year as now I always find myself shooting on manual. I hope you can see the improvement in my blog pictures. In the summer, I found myself taking a lot more pictures I think this could be due to the fact that I brought a new lens.

three. Become healthier
The one that everyone has and never normally completes... I wouldn't really say I've become healthier as in I haven't lost/put on lots of weights. My diet has improved this year, it's not perfect I still eat a lot of junk food, but it's defiantly less than last year. One thing that has improved massively this year is my sleep (sounds weird but it has) I have a set time I will wake up and go to bed every day. Due to this, I've seen changes in my energy and mood levels.

Keep a look out for my 2016 new years resolutions.

Did you complete your new year's resolutions?

My Mini MAC Lipstick Collection

I have quite a small collection of MAC lipsticks because as a student spending £15.50 is quite a lot for one lipstick. However I feel like because I have such a small collection I get to use each one, it's not like on of those videos where they have draws full of lipsticks that last half an hour, where all that's going through my head is how can they possibly manage to wear them all. I feel like a have quite a range of shades which is one of the reasons I get to use them all.

Shy Girl 
This was the first MAC lipstick I ever bought, I remember going to the mac store and being so overwhelmed by all the lipsticks on offer. But before that, I watched so many reviews and collection videos to make sure I spent my birthday money well. Still to this day, I really like this shade as it a "creamy neutral coral beige". It's very much your lips but better shade at one stage I didn't like it because it had an orange/brown tint to it, but I've fallen back in love with it.

Cross Wires
I remember this is a shade that a woman picked out for me in mac - one of the only times there was a really nice woman to help me. For me, this is one of the shades that I never really talked about but it deserves more attention. It a nude but with a bright hint to it and without being too overpowering. It's one of those lipsticks that I really love, but I don't seem to wear it that much.

Ruby Woo 
Recently I feel like I've talked about this a lot on there after I did a full review on it here. Every woman needs a classic red lipstick in their collection and for me this is it. I love this one because it's very matte and long lasting. I find it super flattering for my skin tone and very easy to wear throughout the day.

I included this lipstick in my 'Top 4 Autumn Lipsticks' and I mentioned that I haven't got much wear out of it, but I feel I might be grabbing for it more now we are in the winter months. It looks extremely scary being bright purple but once it's applied to the lips it's not a scary. I feel it's more wearable because it's a satin so it's quite glossy on the lips I would also say that when on the lips it has a more pinky tone - this could be different for everyone, though.

Creme Cup 
Finally Creme Cup, another one of my nude lipsticks but, this time, this one is a more of a pink lipstick instead of coral. I find this lipstick super wearable and it's one of those lipsticks that I will grab quite often. I find because I'm so pale it suits me quite well because you can see the pink in in but in the summer if a have more of a tan (or sunburn) I feel like it can make me look like I'm doing the 'concealer lips'.

What's your favourite MAC lipstick?

It's begging to look a lot like Christmas


I can't believe that there are only 5 days left until Christmas! Recently I've been really getting into the  Christmas spirit around the house, so I decided to take a few random pictures and share them with you. All presents are wrapped a brought the only thing left for me to do is have a Christmas movie day - what films should I watch?

Are you all ready for Christmas?
