New Year's Beauty Resolutions

1 January 2014 9 comments

Happy New Year!!! 

I hope everyone had a joyous, symbolic end of the year, whether you went out and celebrated with sparklers and multiple Magnums (or Balthazars...) or whether you stayed in, with a snuggly blanket in your pyjamas. 

To kick off the new year with motivation and gusto, today I'm sharing with you my beauty resolutions for 2014! 


weheartit: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

This is a common one :P But this year (as what feels like every year) I'm going to pledge to keep this resolution!

Which actually leads me onto the Bloggers Weight Loss Group! I'm going to be starting a weight loss group amongst us bloggers for 2014 that will hopefully be a support network for everyone who wants to lose weight, a place where we can help/motivate/encourage and support eachother through our journeys! Please share the word around and drop me an email at if you'd like to be a part of it!

2. Remove my makeup at the end of every day.

How often do we hear this?! I think it's probably the most important thing you can do for your face, the elusive double cleanse. Let's be honest though, our lives are brimming with "things-we're-supposed-to-do-daily-and-yes-that-means-the-everyday-kind-of-daily", it's unlikely that I'm going to manage to be double-cleanse-perfect everyday but I'm going to cleanse my face in some manner every night!!

3. Drink water.

You lose 1.5L in water a day, and it's important to replenish that as much as you possibly can. I'm not bad at drinking water, I just don't drink enough of it, so my resolution this year is to drink at least the 1.5L a day, 2L would be better.

4. Eat for my skin.

I'm going to try and be really good to my skin this year. That means cutting down on processed, sugar-laden foods and eating more healthy fats and nourishing minerals and nutrients. I'm going to start this by trying to eat a rainbow of colours in my fruit and veg everyday! It'll make it easier for me to keep tabs on my daily nutrient goals :) Red grapes/strawberries, Orange apricots, Yellow pineapple, Green broccoli, Blueberries and Blackberries, Ruby pink raspberries, delicious!

5. Look after my hair.

I've been, inadvertently at first, experimenting with non-heat methods of curling my hair and have been having some very pretty results! If you'd like me to do a post on them, comment below :)

6. Give up (or at least extremely cut down on) alcohol. 

I read an article about Beyonce, in which it said she treats her body like a temple; she doesn't eat bread and she doesn't drink any alcohol whatsoever, and it made me think, why not try being better to my body??? I think that's what 2014 is going to be all about. So I'm going to try and replace alcohol with delicious juices and smoothies.

If you have a similar post, please do link me below, I'd love to read your resolutions for 2014 :)



  1. Great ideas :)

  2. Good luck with your resolutions! I really need to drink more water. I've not made any resolutions this year, for the first time ever haha! xx

  3. I need to do all of these too.... beside cutting down alcohol, since I don't drink at all =)

    1. that's what I'm aiming for! and I'm pretty sure I'm going to do it tbh, it's so toxic for your body! :) xx

  4. Great resolutions, best of luck with them all!! The only one I do is double cleanse, but I love skincare even more than I love makeup so it's no chore for me, I look forward to doing it as soon as I get in the door :) I really need to get healthier though, that's my new year's resolution x

    1. I need to make time for it!! I'm so tired when I get in! Great resolution lovely! If your getting healthier is linked to weight loss like me then you should join our group! :) xx

  5. All great resolutions! Excited to be part of the group.

  6. I heard the same thing about Beyonce treating her body like a temple - I also stopped and thought about it when I first heard it, it's a great concept!! :) Drinking water's a good one too, and plus with working out I'm sure they'll go hand in hand and get at two resolutions at once!

  7. Awesome resolutions, and I love how they're all related to healthy living. Lose weight is on my list every single year, lol!
