Beauty resolutions- Happy new year

So I lost my wallet on the 24th and found it on the 31st.
It was a bad week. This is why I didnt say merry Christmas to you all.
Without my cards, I was incapacitated.
I couldn’t buy anything.
I couldn’t shop I couldnt ship
Dear God.
I found the wallet but I had blocked all the cards.
Still I am grateful for that one miracle.
I gained and lost a lot in the past year and I believe strongly that all losses ended with finding my wallet.
I know that God is faithful.
Despite how sadly my 2015 came to an end and the tears I cried, I trust God that 2016 will be a very good year.
I dusted off my lazy self and made a promise.

Despite the fact that I still dont want people to see my face akin to bbm profile pictures and whatsapp profile pictures and instagram because I really am a shy person and I dont like people seeing me, I decided to ensure I will be wearing makeup every day of 2016.

2016 is the year of me, myself and I.
The year of my perfection
I will not leave this year empty.
I will be heavy with all the good things a person can be heavy with.
I plan to do a retouch on my hair only twice this year.  In june and in december unless of course, something big happens.
I deep conditioned yesterday and washed and I am loving the results of my 23rd december retouch.
My hair can now successfully airdry and be packed in a bun to the salon. Before now when it was texlaxed, it took a ton of products to get me to leave the house looking sane.
Goodbye texlaxing.

My skin.
I decided to take very good care of myself.
I slowly reintroduced an exfoliating sponge into my bath time after years of none and it is working. We are not itching madly. 3days down today.
I am also going to start using alpha hydroxy lotion for my legs because the lines are icking me and despite all the moisture I need aome chemical exfoliation.  Same for my hands. Such demanding skin.
I already have some serum on the way to help with that.  Hyaluronic acid and vitamin c
face because skin is not face
My face is on break from acne now.
Wow. And praise God.
Current routine is
Clarins cottonseed cleanser for oily combination skin and then clearasil pads with 1% salicylic acid.
Benzoyl peroxide or effaclar duo plus depending on how I feel and I have been using ahava dead sea concentrate serum at night all over my face and around my eyes. Loves it.
clothes and shoes and vanities
I am not a biggie for clothes and shoes and this year I just plan to keep my old clothes and wear them. Hahaha.
I do need a pair of pink shoes though and I will invest in one.
I dont have my eye on anything special.
Thankfully I found my wallet so that extra budget is off.

Ah. I love gold.
I hope to buy some of that this year.
Been a while I invested in some gold.
I need earings.
I need a watch because I am tired of wearing hand me downs from brother and father.

My career
I hope to pass my fellowship part 1 this year. It has been a struggle for me so much that I almost lost my passion for work.
I am being real here so this is just the truth.

Samsie skinplus

This is me the confessor. I just had my hair done today. Slept all through it.
I’m wearing vichy dermablend setting powder only and did my brows a bit with sleek eyebrow pencil.  I’m wearing kajal. Can you see it ? This to me, is makeup guys.  My brother says my face is oily.
I promise to put up pictures of myself when I am looking fine. (Only)
Happy new year

What are your plans ? Share!!!! I want to hear.

    1. Oh yay! Thanks for reading. Your hair is so much already. Do you have happy fingers with the scissors ? So you buy clothes a lot. hahaha. Now I’m getting to know you better. I agree with savings. There’s always joy seeing your money grow.


  2. Happy new year my acquired big sister! Wish you the best this year, career wise, skin care wise and of course, relationship wise. I hope you achieve all that you have set out to and so much more!

    This year funny enough I don’t even have resolutions. I mostly have goals and all career related. I’m pretty steadfast and I know with The Almighty on my side I’m bound to achieve them all.

    Here’s to a fabulous 2016, we shall dance together this year and toast to how successful it all was.

    Happy new year my darling! May The Almighty bless you and yours. Amen
