Goals to work towards in 2018

Normally I don’t really do New Years Resolutions. Honestly I dont think I ever have. But I thought it would be a nice change to make some goals to work towards for the new year. So here is a list of things I would like to change or work towards in 2018.

  1. No soda. I’m not a huge soda drinker. The only time I really have soda is when we go out to eat or sometimes when I’m at work. We normally don’t buy soda for the house just to have unless its for mix drinks and I do like my rum and cokes at times. So for the occasional drink I think its fine. Like when I’m out of wine, and had a long day or week at work.
  2. No red meat. I would like to go completely no meat but we will see. Baby steps.
  3. Workout. Accordingly my Fitbit I already surpass the daily 10,000 steps. I do like 13,000-14,000 steps in a day. So Minimum of 3 days. Yoga. Squats. Something else.
  4. No unneeded spending. Enough said.
  5. Read 18 books for 2018.
  6. Downsize my closet. I still have to many clothes, shoes, jackets, etc. Help.
  7. GROW MY HAIR OUT. NO MORE PIXIE. I’m already half way where I want to be.
  8. Paint, create, art more.
  9. More sales in my Etsy shop. I sold 2 items this year.
  10. Blog more often.
  11. Finish my classes on Udemy. I have 6 classes that I paid for (paid no more the $12 for a class). Not taking any more till they are all done. 5 of 6 done so far.
  12. Finish Lost. Ive been watching it on and off for about 2 years now. Oops.
  13. Practice Mindfulness more.
  14. Banish the psoriasis from both shins. 3-5 years overstayed welcome. It has been lighten up slowly more and more but BE GONE!
  15. Shrink the products that are taking over the hallway closet. Face, hair, body products. I have too many.
  16. Drink more water. I fill up my 16oz bottle 1-2 times a day. So I’m half way there.
  17. Read tarot daily.
  18. Not to be so critical. On myself and others. I’m a Virgo. I’m sorry. I just cant stop sometimes.

So far that is my list. Nothing that I cant do. Just need self discipline to accomplish them. What are some of your goals you would like to work towards.

Yes to Miracle Oil Review

Since I have finished up my Nourish Organics Rose hip Face serum, I have been using Yes to Miracle Oil Argon Oil, for the last few months. I had been looking for a new face oil and was having a hard time find one that wasn’t with an outrageous price tag. We happened to be at Burlington Coat Factory, browsing around while waiting for Floki to be done with his neutering appointment. I found it in the beauty aisle and thought why not. Normal price is $11.00 and I bought mine for $6.99. It comes in a 1fl oz solid white bottle with a dropper. So you get a lot for the price. I also have to hide it from Floki because he likes the rubber on the stopper and I found him chewing on it. Silly cat.

I have been very pleased with this product. I use 3 drops morning and at night. One on my forehead and one on under each eye. Then I rub it over my face and rub in what ever is left over on my hands. I love how it makes my face and hands feel. You can even use it on your hair, which I have also done when I have a little extra leftover. There is a slight smell to it but I had to put it very close to my nose to even smell it. It also doesn’t leave your skin really oily, it soaks in pretty quickly for me and leaves my skin so soft.

I have also found that it works well when putting on my makeup. Expect,  don’t put it on your eye lids even with eyeshadow primer, your shadow will crease no matter what you do. At least for me it does. The Same goes with eyeliner, the liner won’t stick to your skin, it will rub off. To me a while to figure that one out. So when I do my makeup I just avoid my eyes with the oil altogether.
