Welcome to 2012!

Happy New Year!!  Hope everyone was safe last night and all is well today!  I just hung out with my family last night so not very exciting here.  We had snacks and watched the ball drop.  It’s the same thing we do each year.

Today I got the tree taken down and all the decorations put away.  The only things still up are the outdoor lights.  Aaron worked all day today and I’m afraid of heights so those will have to wait.  It looks like the holidays are over.  I don’t know whether I’m glad or not about that.

Anyway, time to start a great new year.  I only made one true goal (not a “Resolution”) for 2012, to not put anymore purchases on my Citi card.  I’m really bad about using it for impulse buys when I can’t really afford something.  So, I took the card out of my wallet and put it away.  I’m only going to make payments on it for the year.  If I can stick to this goal then this November, for Black Friday, I’m going to buy myself a new digital SLR camera.  I’ve wanted one for a long time but never bought one.  I’m bound and determined to do this so wish me luck.

As a smaller goal, I want to build up my savings so that means less spending over all.  This one will be harder I think so I’m not as hopeful, but I’m gonna try.

To finish up today please take a look at my New Year’s look from yesterday.  I figure just because I didn’t go out and do anything that’s no reason not to look all glam and such, lol.  I got this look from one of my favorite makeup bloggers, Makeup By TiffanyD.  If you click the link you can see her tutorial on how to achieve the look as well as her list of products used (which differs slightly from mine).  Check her out!

I have always loved your make-up! But i dont think it would look good on me. Do you have any ideas for me? Just normally wearing foundation and powder?

When i decided to really start wearing makeup I started with one of those Almay sets (trios) for specific eye colors. Then I just sorta went from there when it came to bolder looks. I watch tutorials on YouTube for ideas. It also doesn't help that I sit next to Kim at work who encourages me to try things I normally wouldn't, lol.

Ok Bri, Thanks

I watched a few videos and noticed that they use a whole lot more than I ever would. Still sorting through some, but not much luck at this point.

I'd probably just start with foundation/powder daily. Maybe a little mascara and tinted lip balm like these Burt's Bees ones . You can get these at Ulta and I think Walgreens. They're a good choice because they moisturize as well as adding a little color.

If you want to move into wearing eyeshadow after a while muted browns look good on anyone really. Maybelline has some nice quad sets and of course the Almay ones are good.
