2013 Roundup

Snippets from my year: Spent a few days in paradise. Rode a jet ski for the first time. Was an eerie snow queen for Halloween. Started making jewelry again. Won a local contest and got shot for a L'Oreal ad. Saved up and got a DSLR camera. Interned and worked at a variety of places, one included making crepes lol. 

During the past few days I posted lists of my best posts, favorite beauty products, best makeup looks, and favorite beauty blogs of 2013. Now, to give it all some closure, I want to do a small roundup of the last year. On a personal level, it was a rocky year of transitioning, growing, and reinventing. Blog-wise it was a great year. I got to work with Dove, Neutrogena, and became a part of the Intel Tablet Crew (more on that in the future). I'm also extremely grateful for the people who read this blog and the friends I've made through blogging.

Some of my blogging goals:
+ Reach 1,000,000 page views.
+ Post more makeup looks.
+ Post more makeup tutorials on YouTube.
+ Make my blog more personable and include more lifestyle posts.
+ Do more Outfit of the Day or fashion posts.
+ Make better use of social media. (Specially Instagram which I sometimes leave inactive for weeks at a time)
+ Get a new lens for my camera

Some of my personal goals:
+ Take more risks.
+ Take better care of my hair. No more hair dye!
+ Reorganize my closet. 
+ Donate unused clothing to the Salvation Army.
+ Start saving money. Seriously.
+ Start reading books regularly again.
+ Have a steady part-time job. And intern at a magazine once more.

I feel good that I have at least gotten some done already. Crossing items off lists is extremely satisfying. Here are all my Best of 2013 posts in case you missed them: Best Blog Posts, Best Beauty Blogs, Best Makeup Looks, Best Beauty Products.

I hope all of you have a wonderful 2014. Don't be afraid to go after your dreams. It's never too late to start and always too early to stop. Dreams can change, don't hesitate to try new things. Let me know what goals or resolutions you've made for this year. Have a nice week!
