Since everyone’s doing something like this, here’s mine:
- Stop the makeup and online retail therapy (I won’t have to worry about this happening offline since I’m too lazy to shop anyways) and only buy stuff to replace things that have gotten worn out. And just wear the clothes that I’ve chucked aside and not worn often.
This is especially important because I was doing so well last semester with not buying clothes and then boom it was exam season and then I bought a bunch of stuff (in my defence, it was all very nice stuff) and then packing to go home was hell and my mom won’t stop complaining about my wasting money on clothes.
=/Also, I really should stop buying new makeup and properly use and review what I already have.
- Learn to style my hair.
I’m buying off my friend’s curling iron set thingy that’s the photo above. My hair styling skills are practically non existent (which is a sad sad thing). I want to learn to do that beautiful wavy slightly tousled bob I keep seeing in Japanese fashion editorials.Image from http://www.latest-hairstyles.com/medium/bob.html

Also, yesterday I helped a friend for her shoot (photos will be up once the photographer is done with post-processing!) and I finally did hair right so I am rather heartened. For one of the looks I did this crazy hair wild hair thing which basically involved a lot of hair spray, twists and bobby pins.
- Dye my hair (again).
I used to have green hair and I miss it very very much. Now I just need to figure out what colour to dye it and just how much of my hair I should dye.
I’m thinking it’s either a full head (while keeping my hair short) of dark blue hair, or purple, or just something tamer, like an auburn. Or I might do tiny little streaks of different colours. Urgh. So many ideas, only one head of hair.

Image from http://michellephan.com/my-week-in-photos-introducing-em-makeup-line-by-michelle-phan/ I’ve also had a thing for Michelle Phan’s ashy rosy colour – doesn’t it remind you of the Naked 3 palette?
- Own the Naked 3 palette before the year-end.Because I’ve set my heart on it and I will own it.
- Get a nice backpack.Because the one I currently own is a function over form one, which I only use when travelling and I keep using a sling bag everywhere I go and it hurts my shoulder. A lot.
- Something like this would be nice. Image from http://www.aliexpress.com/item/2012-Hot-Item-Multifunctional-Bucket-Bag-Women-s-Backpack/634093834.html
