New Year's Resolutions (Clarisonic Giveaway!)

one of the things i love about January is that it provides you with time to reflect on what you would like to improve in your life. as i mentioned earlier, i have several New Year's Resolutions. yes, most of them revolve around blogging, but i thought i might give you a glimpse of some of the other things i resolve to do better.
  • Project 10 Pan - this is something a lot of Beauty Bloggers and YouTube Gurus try, where they resolve not to purchase any more product until they have used up at least 10 items. hitting "pan" is a term used by glamour girls to describe what happens when you've reached the end of a product:
i may have hit "pan" but i will use this till there is no shade left to use!
  • i resolve to hit pan on at least 10 products before purchasing any new ones! i will be sure to save the empties of all my MAC products because of their fantastic recycling program that allows you 1 free lipstick when 6 empty product containers are returned to a MAC store/counter. hmmm...maybe we could convince other brands to do this as well. wouldn't you love a new Julep polish if you turn in 6 empty containers?

  • my next resolution is to take better care of my skin. i have been wanting the Clarisonic Mia forever and i finally received it this holiday. i always insisted that i would have better skin if i could just use this little beauty:
  • this means no more excuses! sleeping in my makeup, not washing before i reapplied, (yes, i am guilty of all of these things) are no longer options in my routine. i want my natural beauty to shine with or without the help of makeup.

because i would like to help you with your New Year's Resolutions, or perhaps you don't need it but would like to gift it to someone else, or even receive it as a Valentine's Day gift (send your husbands over!), i am offering one Blushing Basics reader the chance to win their very own Clarisonic Mia. this is the Nordstrom Holiday Set (shown above) that includes a Travel Bag and Trial Size Cleanser.
