I like to spend money. Not that I have much but what I do have is usually gone fast. As a student and upcoming unpaid intern and eventually unemployed journalist I am taking some lessons from Extreme Cheapskates.  I’ve decided to not buy any cosmetic products until I have used what I have; a mini-spending freeze. I have so many samples, half-used containers and too many eyeshadows and lipsticks to count that I just can’t buy anymore. This is going to be extremely difficult for me because I love trips to the makeup counter, hair care aisle and love to try new lotions, balms and serums. So if you’re wondering why I’m washing my face six times a day and am basically wearing clown makeup, just know that I am trying to use everything up quickly. Let’s see how long this “freeze” lasts for.

Just wait for it . . .

Hello 2013!

4 Jan

The holidays have come and gone and I haven’t made any resolutions for the new year. Goals – yes, resolutuions -no. One thing I have found myself doing (like the rest of the world) is reflecting on 2012 and what I have learned and what I still need to learn.
2012 taught me that mean girls will always exist. I’ve learned who my true friends really are and those who aren’t in my life anymore, it is truly their loss. I’ve learned that I’m smarter than I actually realize. I’ve learned that holding on to anger will only ruin my well-being. I’ve learned how to try and make the best out of a difficult situation. I’ve learned that nothing beats good company, good wine and good food. I’ve learned that I should try and be like my younger self who is not afraid to take risks and try new things.
What I still need to learn – besides flying a plane – is to not get discouraged and enjoy this journey we call life.
