New Year, new choices.

Jeez. I really need to post more on here. But that is neither here nor there.

It's now 2013, and that means New Year's Resolutions. Everybody says they'll make them, and follow them, then by the middle of January, they've forgotten them, and don't work on them. I'm TOTALLY guilty of doing this. Every year I make some, and then I forget about them, and then by the end of the year I make a big deal about making new ones for the next year.

My resolutions this year are: try to lose weight, become more confident, and, take better care of myself (body, skin, mind). So far, I'm doing well with the taking better care of myself. I've been walking at least thirty minutes, three times a week. It makes my legs hurt, I'm breathing heavily at the end, I'm covered in sweat; but it's worth it. I'm by no means a healthy person. I eat too large portions, I don't eat enough healthy foods, and until the beginning of this year, I avoided exercise like the plague. And that has resulted in me being overweight. So, this year, I'm making a conscious effort to lose weight. And my walks are hopefully helping. I've been noticing my jeans are fitting a little more loosely around my hips.

Which leads to helping with my next resolution - trying to become more confident. I've always had low self-esteem and that has led to some issues in my life. And this year, I'm doing things to help me see the beauty that I have. So, I'm going to start making beauty videos on YouTube. It's been a dream of mine for a few years now, and I'm going to put it into action.

Another thing I'll be doing is the Bedroom Beauty Challenge from Louise at SprinkleofGlitter.

Participating in it is easy as pie! I'm sure we all have beauty looks we're a little apprehensive about trying out in public - I know I do! So, try that look in the privacy of your own bedroom. No one can see if you push outside of your comfort zone; experiment with glitter, colour, different looks than your normal choices. I'm sure that once you try it, you'll see that it looks great on you, and that will help you feel more likely to wear it outside of your house.  And if you don't like it, that's fine too. You don't have to like everything you try out. That's why we keep trying new products, new looks. So if you do try this challenge, feel free to post your picture in a comment or on Twitter, with the hashtag #bedroombeauty.

So, I'm ending this post with another picture I came across online a few months ago that I feel fits this post. Outward beauty is great, but having a kind and loving heart and soul is just as important.

Love you all!!
