Womanista Beauty: Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, womanistas! I can’t believe it’s 2013!! Which means this is also the year that I turn 30! Eeep! (Sayanara 20s, it’s been real…)

Anyway, I’ve been thinking about what I hope life can be about this year, and conjuring up new goals. For me, new beginnings always mean a chance to work harder, be kinder, love more, and be a little more fabulous :-)

Here are a few things I want to reach for in 2013, and maybe we can all try them and reflect back together! (And PS – none of them have anything to do with weight loss!)

*Give someone a compliment every day

*Start using eye cream! (Did I mention I’m turning 30 this year??)

*Spend more quiet time with God each day

*Spend a few moments each day giving thanks

*Wash my makeup brushes more (yes, I don’t do this on the reg. Gross!)

*Learn to cook a new delicious & healthy meal

…and that’s all, folks! Totally doable, right?? What about you, womanistas? What are some of your personal goals for 2013?

xo, the Womanista

    I like your new year resolutions, especially the one with give a compliment everyday.
    I don’t have any other than take each day as it comes and embrace it and be happy to be alive. Be more thankful for what we already have and appreciate the little things.
    30 is not an age missy!! You are just as old or young as you feel, age is JUST a number!

    Happy New Year!!

    These all sound like great goals! I especially love the goal of starting to use eye cream (I’ve got ten years on you so I probably should have started that when I turned 30!) Some of my personal goals are:

    *Be more open to letting new friendships into my life.

    *Let go of negative circumstances/attitudes more quickly.

    *Have more fun.

    *Take more time out each day, week, and/or month to treat myself!

    I can’t believe its 2013 but if I learned anything from 2012. I need to:

    Laugh more with my family
    Dress up every once and while
    Take time to relax and look around
    Last but not least bake

    • Woman January 4, 2013 at 6:29 pm #

      Amen, sister! I think you should do all these at the same time! Dress up to bake one day, while laughing with your fam :-) Happy new year! xx

    These are great goals! Let us know if you find a good eye cream. I have tried several and am not sold on any.

    My goals are: cook dinner every night unless we have plans (already started doing that!), drink more water (trying to do that), and give more to charity, either in time or money or both.

      I will start the eye cream hunt next week and keep you posted! I am so so impressed that you cook every night! That is fabulous!! xx

    I have to say I love these goals and will try them! I want to add to this list for me, clean my email accounts (66,000 emails isn’t reasonable,right?), Join Avon, and after my baby comes in March, Im really going to try to be Vegan!! Also I want to be a better cook and do MORE for my Hubby and Kids ;)
