January Recap: Still New Year New You? #Realtalk

So here we are at the tailend of January. Still feeling the “new year, new you” vibe or fleeting just like before? For one, I’m seeing less workout selfies and more pig-out moments in my Facebook and Instagram feeds. Have you reorganized your closet and purged as you initially planned? What about your no-buy idea? Back to your old ways? Congrats, you are confirmed human!

But seriously, don’t feel so bad by not accomplishing your goals this month. Look at the brighter side, you still have eleven months to wrestle! The question is, will it be the same story by end February or March? hopefully not. Remember, procrastination is the evil sister of motivation.

Blog-wise, I still have a lot of things to implement. I need to come up with an editorial calendar to help me plan my posts more efficiently. I’m thinking a design revamp and possibly investing on a new camera or lighting setup. And yeah, still finding that balance between a full time job and blogging on the side. Eleven months to wrestle.

No-buy plan unsuccessful. I am but human, yay!

What about you, how was your January?

    I've been a slacker but I'm blaming the baby!

    I have stuck with the no-buy, not counting the two free products I got with CVS Extrabucks. But I've got the Ulta 20% off coupon, and I'm struggling not to use it 😉

    I stuck to my no-buy for three whole weeks! I'm congratulating myself at Sephora Dubai next week 😀 Can't wait!

    I have been so busy with work that I have been feeling overworked and tired! I have lots and lots of products to photograph, but I seem to be exhausted when I get home from work! Haven't been buying much make up these days!

      Same here my friend. My home office is a mess right now, boxes left and right.

    I've been slacking and only have myself to blame. Time to get motivated and tackle those goals like a champ!

    My January has been great! I set out and accomplished everything I wanted to this month and let me tell ya I had some pretty big goals. Spending was wayyy down on beauty though I did grab some fab finds at LOFT during their $15 sale.

    I was a huge slacker lol. I kept telling myself I was going to kick ass this month and I failed. Here's to next month!

    I had a pretty good January! Can't believe it's almost over… 🙂

  9. January 30, 2015 / 1:17 am

    A few things didn't get done but others did so I feel pretty good about it.

  10. January 30, 2015 / 2:14 am

    I can't believe January has passed! I'm keeping most of mine– I've been cooking healthy nearly every weekday!

  11. January 30, 2015 / 3:22 am

    January has flown by

  12. January 30, 2015 / 5:11 am

    I feel like January has gone on foreverrrrr, I need to get myself together!

  13. January 30, 2015 / 7:26 am

    I can't believe it's over – it feels like the holidays were ages ago.

  14. January 30, 2015 / 1:28 pm

    LOL I could never do a no buy so I don't even try!!!

  15. January 30, 2015 / 3:40 pm

    I didn't really make any resolutions this year except to live a good life! So I think I'm doing okay so far. 🙂

  16. January 30, 2015 / 9:52 pm

    I didn't really make any specific resolutions, but I have been trying a 'less-buy' since a no-buy would never happen. I've done pretty well with it 😀

  17. January 31, 2015 / 12:25 am

    I needed a break when things at home took a hit. But I am going to kick it up a notch in February!

  18. January 31, 2015 / 3:28 am

    LOL I'm actually still doing pretty well. I needed to make some changes & the new year helped give me the extra boost.

  19. January 31, 2015 / 9:45 pm

    No buy pftttttt… better to buy than live with regret on missing out 😉 LMAO that's what I tell myself!
