My goals for 2015

December 31, 2014 0 Comments
Hello everyone!

Happy New Year's Eve!  I thought it would be a good idea to share my goals for the new year (aka resolutions), maybe they can inspire some of you.

I believe that you should set goals any time, but with the start of a new year it's a good idea to start afresh!  Here are some of my goals for 2015:

  • Keep exercising daily - I try to hoop for at least one hour everyday and I love it.  With hooping your can burn 400-600 calories per hour while having fun and feeling great.  If you want to know more about hooping, click here.  Sometimes I also workout using full length videos from BeFiT and FitnessBlender.  If one of your goals is to get in shape or lose weight, I suggest you check out those links!
  • Make more time for piano practice - A few years ago, I bought a keyboard and was determined to learn how to play the piano.  Years went by and I haven't practiced nearly as much as I should have.  So this year I will make it a point to practice every week.  I know that ideally one should practice every day, but I also know that that would be a resolution I couldn't keep.
  • Regulate my sleep pattern -  I usually go to bed after 4:30/5:00 am and wake up around noon.  I know that this is not ideal and as a result, I miss breakfast everyday, which in not healthy.  In 2015 I will try to wake up and go to bed at the same time every day.
  • Eat less chocolate  - I always eat very healthy meals but I cannot give up  chocolate.   I love chocolate, and not the healthier dark chocolate with very high percentage of cacao.  I only eat milk chocolate, even though I'm well aware of its ingredients (mainly sugar and fat) and that it's not good for our bodies.  Especially not if you eat it every day like I do.  Milk chocolate is also the only "dairy product" I eat.
  • Last but not least, I’ll try my best to post more frequently on this blog in 2015.

2015 is also the year of my GOLDEN birthday; I'll turn 30 on May 30th!

New Year's beauty resolutions

January 03, 2013 0 Comments

Happy 2013 everyone!

Usually I don’t make any New Year’s resolutions but this year I decided to make a list of my “beauty resolutions”...  

My 2013 beauty resolutions:
  • Exfoliate face and body once a week.  
  • Wear SPF 15 or higher year-round, even during the winter months.
  • Stop squinting!!  It can deepen fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead.  Never leave the house without dark sunglasses. 
  • Make nail polish last longer and avoid staining nails with dark colours by applying a base coat.
  • Work out at least three times a week.  This will stimulate blood flow and circulation, resulting in healthier skin and body.
  • Get the most out of a hair treatment by squeezing excess water from the hair before applying.  This allows it to effectively penetrate the hair shaft.
  • Don’t pull back hair too tightly.  Tight hair styles can cause breakage. 
  • Try out new DIY beauty recipes.

What are your beauty resolutions for 2013?  Share them in the comments below! J
