What are the Makeup Wars?
The Makeup Wars group blog blasts about the same topic about every other week. We link to each others' posts through the themed graphic and the blog logo/photo links at the bottom of this post. We encourage you readers to click the links and scroll through all of our blogs to see our favorite mascaras! Our posts all go live at the same time. So, finding out what other Makeup Wars bloggers picked is a surprise to me too! I am always so eager to click through to find out what everyone picked!

From my years in the workforce as a Speech-Language Pathologist, I am not a newbie when it comes to goals setting. Not only is goal setting intertwined with speech therapy, but also it is a part of working with and leading a professional team. While my job tiled has changed from Speech-Therapist to Stay-at-Home Mommy and Beauty Blogger, I still find that goals setting is something that I do on a weekly and even (sometimes) daily basis. I know, I am so "type A"! lol! I just find that I am more efficient and productive with my time when I set goals. Plus, I just love writing lists and crossing off items as they are accomplished.
Attainable Goal Setting and Self-Accountability:
I think that the key with creating attainable goals is to be realistic with goal setting. One must look at the length of time for their "data collection" and be mindful of what their goal is actually measuring. In my case, for example, rather than "lose the rest of the baby weight", I am setting goals for more attainable precursor steps like "eat healthy snacks". Also, no, I won't actually be taking data on my goals. However, I am going to make myself accountable. I am going to print myself out a copy of my numbered goals. Each day that I make advancement towards one of my goals, I will mark the # of my goal onto my refrigerator calender.
So, I am posting my 2013 New Years Resolutions! Curious? Please keep reading to find out what my Resolutions are for this brand new year!
My 2013 Beauty and Lifestyle Resolutions:
Ya'll know that I just couldn't resist creating a beautysets graphic for this! :) Are you on beautysets yet? If so, be sure to follow me there! :)
Do you see a general theme with my goals (besides "beauty")? For me, I do have a wish for 2013: I hope to carve out some more time for myself. After just becoming a Mom, and devoting so much time to my baby, I have begun to realize the importance of giving time to yourself as well. While my daughter is still my #1 priority, I know that I can be a better Mom and wife if I take care of myself too! Also, I am aiming to decrease clutter (use up those products!) and to get more organized (a total makeup collection overhaul and re-organization is in my near future...ya'll know that I will totally devote a blog post to this!).
Have you created any New Years Resolutions yet for 2013? What tops your list this year?
