2012 Resolutions... month one in.

Master liquid eyeliner once and for all
I have tried. Applying the liner to the upper lid is a cinch but it's the flick that is testing my patience! The first time I tried my right eye looked awesome, then I had numerous attempts at trying to match it on the other side. The result was seven blackened cotton buds, a sore eye and a frayed temper... I'm going to watch more YouTube tutorials (I imagine there are hundreds that I haven't watched yet). I have discovered that 'practising' 10 minutes before your taxi arrives it not a good idea!

Finish the jumper I started knitting in March 2010
I've got my knit on a few times this month but I am going to have to unpick it all. I won't bore you with it but I am more determined than ever to get this thing finished!

Fix the 'mend pile'
I have mended a belt loop and sewn on some missing buttons, so it's a start albeit a small one.

Write at least one line in my diary everyday
This is going well. I have made a promise to myself to note down the silly things, the little things that made me smile or raised a laugh during my day, who wants to remember the negative?

Use the spa vouchers OH gave me for our second anniversary
I have used one voucher and have another appointment booked. A hot stone massage is hardly a chore now is it? This is a resolution that I could happily make a habit of.

Negotiate with work to be based at home
I don't think that this will be possible… but I haven't given up on this just yet. I have a few things that need to be put into place before tackling this one.

How are your resolutions going?

  1. It took about three years for me to get the hang of liquid liner, I think finding the right liner for you is key x

    1. I have a few to try, so I won't give up just yet!

  2. My diary resolution has totally gone to pot!

    When doing the eyeliner, look face on in the mirror, with your eyes open, and put a little dot of liner where you want the flick to end. Then do the lashline and work towards your little mark! I hope that makes sense!

    1. It does. I'll give this a try and let you know how I get on. Fingers crossed :-)
      Thanks x

  3. I'm sure with a bit of time and practice you'll be a master of liquid eyeliner, don't fret. My resolutions are 50/50. I must get back on track.

  4. At least your making a good start with them all. My youngest has been mastering the liquid eye liner and it looks fab. Keep at it cause you'll get it.

  5. I could never master liquid eye liner! Keep meaning to start my resolutions although I have had a great closet clear out!!
