When it comes to NYE do you makes plans / reservations or do you just wing it?
If I go out NYE, I'll plan on going to a party or meeting friends at a bar/club. But, once those original plans start to get old or boring (which they tend to do), we begin calling/texting other people to see where they're at and what's going done on their end. NYE can take me to multiple parties and spots, but they are always full of friends and fun!
What are your plans for this New Years Eve?
Well, being 30weeks pregnant aka 7 1/2 months pregnant, I'm not in the partying mood... we're planning on lounging around at home, maybe have some wine, snack on popcorn and cookies and watch the New Year's festivities on TV.
Whether it's a night on the town or a night in, do you get glam?
Going out - I always have to glam it up - NYE or not! haha, I'm a makeup addict, of course I glam up every chance I get!
But, staying in, I probably will be sporting my go-to nighttime moisturizer, Eucerin Dry Skin Therapy Original Moisturizing Creme (I might just curl my lashes and rock some Wild Rose Korres Lip Butter too)
Found a makeup photo from NYE 2009 (I always forget to photograph myself on NYE, haha)
Do you have any New Years Eve traditions?
Um... lol, drink? Haha! I'm not a lush, but usually my NYE's are for letting loose and enjoying my time out with my friends. I don't really have any traditions though... OH! I guess, one would be getting ready with my BFF - doing our hair and makeup while listening to music and getting pumped up for the night's festivities.
Did you make a resolution entering 2011 and did you stick to it?
2011 was the first year I made any type of new year's resolution, and it wasn't all that serious either... just an idea I had that I ended up sticking to all year long. You might have seen this on my Twitter already, but my 2011 resolution was to start up my beauty blog and keep up with it all year long. This was a huge deal to me because I had no idea how to blog or where to blog. It was a brand new thing to me, and I found my way through the web to create my own blog and how to become a part of this amazing online beauty community. I never would have foreseen myself as a blogger - or even sharing my beauty obsession with the world, but I'm glad I did it.
Are you making a resolution(s) for 2012?
I wasn't planning on it, but a few of my blog related goals for next year include finding new ways to be a part of the online beauty community. I have a few personal goals for next year; learning to parent two children, completing little DIY projects in our new home to upgrade it a bit, finding a way to use my crafty skills to make money while being a stay at home mother, and a few more goals I can't think of at the moment (I should probably write these down).
A few of my crafts (DIY baby room decorations - these were made in 2010)
How do you plan on being successful with your 2012 resolutions?
I think so. I usually set realistic goals for myself, and I discuss it with BF so that he can give me his opinions on how attainable my goals really are. When there's someone supporting you the whole way, your confidence sky rockets and it's so much easier to accomplish things - plus when you get proud of yourself, they are proud of you too.
All the accomplishments I've made with my blog and websites, I share them with BF and he's always so happy and proud of all the work I put into my project(s). Even when I hit a new level of subscribers, he's right there to say good job and feel just as excited and grateful as I do!
Do you get 'healthy' with the New Year?
Haha, nope! I'm anti-diet. I believe in being conscious of what you eat, make good choices, stay active (even if you're just going on walks, or putting in some time on your Wii Fit), don't overdue your indulgences and have fun with your flavors. The more flavorful your food is - most likely it's healthier than the bland/beige foods you get from drive-thrus.
What was your greatest success of 2011?
Aside from learning to be a parent (and excelling at it! LOL), I think my main success of 2011 is my online life. I started 2011 with a personal Facebook page (that I rarely even visited) and I'm ending 2011 with a couple of blogs that people actually read, a YouTube channel that people actual watch, a Facebook fan page that I'm addicted to, a Twitter account that I drown with randomness, and a handful of beauty websites that I have become a loyal member to. I've built new relationships, new friendships, and met people from all over the world that share the same interests and loves as I do! My greatest success of 2011 is being brave enough to put myself out here.

Did you learn from a challenge that will make you stronger for the coming year?
This year was actually the first year of my entire life that I wasn't struggling with drama or hardships. I wasn't sad about my life or situation. I wasn't pep-talking myself everyday to be strong and stick it out, hoping for good Karma to come my way sooner than later. 2011 was the best year in full - from start to finish it has been all blessings for me and my family. I'm beyond grateful for everything because I have literally dealt with more than one person should have to in their first 25yrs of life.
What are you hoping 2012 brings?
I'm hoping to stay on this good path, maintain the positiveness that is surrounding our family.
Do you kiss at midnight, even if it's a stranger?
YES! Haha, I always have to have a New Year's kiss! Even if I'm single, I'm grabbing a friend and puckering up - no strangers though, that's just a little awkward to me, lol ;)
HAPPY NEW YEAR'S!
|haha, that's my kissy face!|
