Happy New Year! I'm really excited to say bye to 2016 and hello to 2017! I'm also excited to write out these 2017 beauty goals and share them with you. I'd love to hear yours in the comments!
I don't like setting a bunch of small, specific resolutions, so I've opted instead of think of a few things that I want to achieve.
If you've been reading my blog posts since last year (kudos to you!) then you'll know my word for 2016 was simplicity. And I'm so proud of how much simplicity I embraced.
I've made the transition to zero waste (although we'll get to that later), we moved into a smaller apartment, and I've been able to prioritize and simplify my schedule and the amount of things I take on. I've even been able to really simplify my skincare by cutting down the actual products I use and using products with much fewer ingredients.
But in 2017 I want to keep going. When it comes to beauty, I want to continue simplifying both the number of products and the ingredients.
I've been really inspired by the founder of cocokind, Priscilla Tsai, to use skincare as makeup. I want to try her ideas of using toner as a setting spray, making eye shadow out of cocoa powder, as well as creating my own ideas.
I think bringing more creativity and less "stuff" into my beauty routines will make them all the more magical.
While I'm not 100% zero waste, I'm getting there and I'm loving it more every day. The biggest problem area is my personal care routine. So while I want to embrace simple ingredients, I also want to be less wasteful.
I'd love to know what your 2017 goals and resolutions are for yourself and for your beauty routines! That way we can support and motivate each other.
I'd also love to know your thoughts and ideas about my blog. When do you read blog posts? What topics are your favourite? What are your favourite brands and products? What are your favourite platforms? What would you like to see more of? What would you like to see less of?
This feedback is really important to me and it can help me help you get the anwsers you need and connect you to your new favourite products!
