Resolu-what?

Do you make New Year's resolutions? Do you keep them? I think the point of New Year's resolutions are to break them - at least for me anyway, so for 2010 I'm giving myself two goals.


1) To appreciate more. This is actually already happening. Because of the crappy economy (i.e. the mister being awesome but people not hiring for jobs), I've had to really examine what is a priority in my life. There are times I stress (probably more than necessary), but there have also been moments I take it all in and am truly grateful for the things we have. When he gets a job (fingers crossed!) I want to still appreciate people and situations the way I do now.

2) To conquer eyeliner. Okay, I know this sounds silly and to all you savvy beauties out there it's not even a big deal. But I'll let you in on a little secret. Eyeliner scares me. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome and it looks good on me, but if I have to apply it myself? Forget it! The problem is, with how light my eyes and eyelashes are, mascara usually isn't a enough, especially if I'm tired and trying to look awake. I've bought eyeliner in the past - and then eventually tossed it because it goes to waste just sitting in my makeup bag for months on end. So...any tips for a scaredy cat beginner? Share the knowledge, please!

Are you making any new year's resolutions? Or are you going to set some "goals" like me? Do you think it's just a useless tradition in general?

What are you doing tonight? Hanging with friends? Curling up and having some quality "me" time? And more importantly...what are you wearing? You know I love sweats as much as a cute dress - so share it!

Oh, and Dude gets the best dog of 2009 award for letting me do this to him.


Don't forget to help me choose books to read next year!

I made resolutions last year & was very successful on 2 of them, and fairly successful on my 3rd one. My only resolution this year is cutting down on lattes!

I'll be heading to my parents' cabin - can't wait! So I will probably be in my jammies when the clock strikes 12 - and I may or may not be awake!!

Happy New Year!

Oh, and your dog is so cute!

I make them, but I NEVER keep them.
But this year I'm going to try harder. I plan to be nicer in 2010!!

I would also like to conquer eyeliner. A few weeks ago my girlfriend showed me how to do it properly (she made it look SO easy) but now I just have to keep practicing!!

Happy New Year, love! XO

Eyeliner scares me a little too....there is just so much potential for putting my eye out!

I will be wearing pjs tonight and downing some ice cream with my hubby and daughter! happy new year!

I rarely make resolutions because I just can't handle the pressure! I usually just try to set small goals for myself throughout the year.

Eyeliner takes PRACTICE. Lots of it. I would try an easy glide pencil type (they usually say something like "gel based" on them, but not always) that goes on smoothly (this makes SUCH a difference) and get one that has a little smudger on the other end. That way if you mess up, you can just smudge it up and it looks you were going for that "smoky" look :-)

I never make new year's resolutions. I just try to set different goals for myself throughout the year.
