Cuticle oil will be a big part of 2014 for me, as using my extensive nail stash just isn't as enjoyable knowing that I have some ragged borders for the pretty shades. I've got a bit bottle of Kit Cuticle Oil in my drawer and my plan is to have a little nail box in the lounge room so that I can slop on some oil while watching Breaking Bad each night. I tend to do my nails in the lounge room so that I have TV or YouTube to watch as they dry - is this a common trait? I also really want to use up a lot of my body lotions this year, as I tend to chop and change between scents and never end up finishing a whole tub/tube.

I think that most bloggers resolve to use less of their heat stylers when a new year beckons, but for me I pledge the opposite. More effort into hair care and styling will be a task for this lazy lady, but the feeling I get when my long hair is straightened/curled and looking good is well worth the extra time it takes to tend to it.
I have been thinking about this next goal and can't seem to put my finger on what it is I wish to achieve with it. Perhaps to be at peace with my makeup collection is what I yearn for right now? During December I had a few main products I used over and over again, and seeing dents form in eye shadows and tubes begin to thin out was quite a thrill for me. I tend to 'rotate' my products too often, but perhaps being able to strike a happy medium between loving all of my eye shadows and using some up can be met this year?

A goal I am sure about is the effort to double cleanse my skin each night. For the most part I already do this, but my skin reacts quickly when the effort falters and I am left with a pretty unhappy canvas to apply makeup on. I had been using the Shu Uemura cleansing oil* (green variant) but it didn't agree with my skin so I am thinking of returning to a nice thick cleansing balm eventually. I've got my bottles of Bioderma from the Priceline 40% sale but they are reserved for refreshing myself on non-makeup days and for eye-shadow switches mid way through the day, so I'm not even considering using them as a first cleanse (to take makeup off before double cleansing is okay though)
Have you pegged any goals for the new year?
I quite like the 'new' feeling I'm enjoying right now, like a spring clean for my mind.
