New Year, New You?

Well, it's that time again when everyone makes their New Year's resolutions. Just like most people, I rarely stick to, or even implement mine after the first few weeks. However, this year I plan on making several beauty and fashion resolutions and actually applying them.

Since I have more black in my closet than Marilyn Manson, I would like to incorporate more colors, patterns, etc. to spice up my otherwise dark wardrobe. In addition, I'd love to get out of my ho-hum hair rut and experiment with a new sexy style or cut. I'm not sure when I'll actually execute these makeover aspirations, but I desperately want to add some variety to my look within the next twelve months. Wish me luck!



What are some of your resolutions this year? Is it to work out more, spend more time with family, etc? Or do you avoid making resolutions all together? Please share!

Good luck to you and I hope you are feeling well in all this cold. I hope to get fitter in my body and financially fitter.

Well, I wasn't going to make any resolutions this year because they always seem to fall to the wayside but my BFF changed my mind....so I'm going to be diligent about saving money and changing my terrible eating habits for the sake of the kiddos! So farewell to eBay and Five Guys Burgers & Fries....well, maybe I'll just cut back a bit!

happy new year BGG!!

My resolution is to contribute more to my household duties (ie dishwashing, folding clothes, cooking) I vow to stop treating my mom who lives with me as the hired help and do more for my own house.

I don't make resolutions, but I do make short terms goals each year. One of this year's many goals is to get my CC debt down to 1-20% of the total available balances. I'm doing this instead of paying them off completely and having the CC play me by closing them. (They're going for blood lately).

I've been talking about being debt free on 12/31/10 (and working towards the goal) for a while and I can't believe I'm so close. Woo hoo!

Can't wait to see your new haircut, whenever you get it. :)

Happy New Year! Well, in 2010 my wishes are to pay off 90% of my debt (Lord Willing), save more-spend less,and drink more water. Wish me blessings as I wish you and everyone who responded many blessings in your endeavors!
