I simply cannot believe how fast this year has gone by! So much happened in 2013 that it becomes difficult to summarize it in just one post but nevertheless it was a good year and I am hoping 2014 would be even a better one!
2013 was special in terms of my work and personal life, the first half of 2013 I spent in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and the experience was amazing! It was also the first time I took time off from my work and adopted the role of a house wife which to be honest was quite difficult for me not in terms of managing the home but it was more of a conflict with my inner self as I am not used to sitting at home. This was also the time I released how much I missed my work and how important it was for me to be and feel independent. I absolutely salute to all women who work and balance their professional and personal life, I know how difficult it can get especially with kids!
2013 also marked a new beginning in my blogging journey as I started my own blog "My Vanity Treasures" to share and capture my experiences with makeup and beauty related stuff. This was one of the best decisions of my life and I truly have to thank Mr D for constantly pushing me to start my own blog and believing in me in times when I doubted my self!
As far as plans and resolutions go I usually am not a person who would stick to a plan or live by rules and hence I never make any resolutions as I know I would never be able to fulfill them. But I definitely want to bring positive changes in my lifestyle especially in terms of eating healthier food, exercising regularly and practice meditation.
I also want to cut down on my splurging especially on makeup items, if you know me you would know I don't really do impulse purchases, most of my purchases are very calculated ones. But this new year I want to buy things only if I really need them and not buy them because of sales or good deals. Of course there will be moments of impulse splurges as after all I am a human being but I definitely will try to curb my unnecessary expenses
Another important promise I want to make to myself is to try and use products which I already have in my stash before buying new products or even back ups! So you would definitely see a lot of tutorials and makeup looks this year!
What are your new year resolutions? Any promises you made to yourself? Do share them below as I would love to read them and get inspired :)
Hope you all had a wonderful time this year with your family and friends and here's to a new beginning and may god shower his blessings on each and everyone of you! Stay blessed!
Until next time take care and stay beautiful!
