My Goals For 2014

asian girl, beauty blogger, australian beauty blogger

Okay, so we’re nearly 1.5 months into 2014 and I’ve only just found time to write down my goals for this year. I became a SAHM (Stay At Home Mum – at least until my maternity leave ends) last week after my darling mother left Australia to return back to Scotland and let’s just say that I have not settled into my role as gracefully as I would have liked. Free time? What free time? I only have 90 seconds to brush my teeth and pee before Princess Bunty starts crying! Anyway, let’s not dwell on that and talk about my goals for 2014. I feel that if I blog about it, it will keep me accountable and I will try and follow through.

2013 will be my year…

2013 will be my year

I can feel it in my bones – 2013 will be my year…AND YOURS TOO!

Happy 2013 to all of you beautiful peeps out there!  I want to thank all the lovely ladies* who took their time to send me lovely encouraging messages from blog comments to Tweets to Facebook messages to emails to SMS to Whatsapps in regards to my previous post.  They genuinely helped put a big smile on my face.

As for my progress, I am getting there…but it still hurts.  To be honest, I over-estimated my healing abilities because I thought I would be back to my regular beauty blogging self, but I won’t lie.  I am not ready yet.  Tomorrow marks the 3rd week since our loss.  I just feel like I can’t beauty blog and talk passionately about beauty products when my heart is elsewhere at the moment.

And yep, you guessed it, I still have the hairiest upper lip!!!  And I have been wearing the daggiest clothes sans makeup!!!

But I did paint my nails the other day (OPI Passion as seen in photo) so I’ll get there eventually!

I won’t apologise for extending my blog break because I need it to heal emotionally.  It’s amazing how much healing occurs when you spend time with loved ones and doing things you love.  My Mum has been cooking all my favourite foods including sweet and sour pork!!  Woohoo!  I am also going to get her to teach me to carve a carrot into a rose (see photo).

I’m going to Hong Kong next week and yay, I’ll get to see my Dad there.  Retail and food therapy, I’m comin’!!!!

Be back soon *pinky promise*

3 Things I Want to Achieve in August 2012

Is it just me or has 2012 flown by really quickly?  I cannot believe we are now in the month of August…my birthday month – YAY!  It’s on the 20th by the way – hence the love heart on the 20 in the calendar.  *hint hint*

So… I’ve been having a crazy rollercoaster ride with a thing called ‘LIFE’ (and this blog isn’t really the blog to share about that…) but this month, I have decided to set 3 mini personal goals and hopefully, achieve them.

Here are 3 things I want to achieve in August 2012 :-

1.  I want to learn to wink like a sexy minx!

No, I am serious!  Now that I have started a beauty channel, I have a crazy amount of video footage of me pulling stupid goofy faces – there is no sophistication, no sassiness, no sex appeal!  Who wants to watch a beauty channel like that?  So yeah, I am going to learn to wink like a sexy minx and not wink like I am constipated!

2.  I want to moisturise my body every day.

That sounds really weird…and a bit dirty because it sounds like I want to feel up my body or something!!!  But anyway, my worst beauty habit is not moisturising.  Sometimes I get so lazy that I can’t even be bothered to apply moisturiser to my face!!!!!!  And y’all know that I am a dry-skinned diva so my skin really needs moisturiser because it turns into sandpaper the next day!  So, I’m gonna slap moisturiser all over my body in a sensual manner 😛  Expect lots of body moisturiser reviews in September!  I warned ya!

3.  I want to change my mindset to positive thinking!

This is inspired by my lovely friend, Norlin who is the Queen of Positive Thinking!  On Twitter, I am always tweeting my innermost thoughts which are highly negative.  I am the Princess of Pessimism!  But no more of that negative nonsense!  I want to adopt a fresh, new, positive attitude to life and everything and everyone around me.  Bet I will fail sail through this easily 🙂

I am starting with 3 mini goals because if I have too many, I will definitely lose motivation before the end of the month.  Of course, I will update you all next month to see how August went.  Anyway, why don’t you join me?  Maybe we can form a Monthly Motivation club or something?
