Project 20 Pan

Okay, I am sure everyone has heard of "Project 20 Pan" and maybe even done it/attempted to do it. I myself tried to do this challenge awhile back, but didn't even last a day! (oops) But I am DETERMINED this time around to smack this challenge in the face!
 
I should probably explain what exactly "Project 20 Pan" is before I start doing my smack talk, just in case you aren't sure. It's basically where I have to hit pan on 20 products aka use all of the product on 20 beauty related items. I decided to do this challenge because I was getting a washcloth out of my bathroom closet when I looked down at the 3 shelves that were completely full of beauty related products. There are a lot that I have not even opened and some that have only been used once or twice!! GASP! How did this happen?! I'll tell you how! I see a product that I just have to have and then all of a sudden BAM a new product comes out that is supposed to be even better than the other product, so of course I have to go out and get that one. So the older product gets put in the bathroom closet along with all of the other "not as good as the newest products."
 
So here is to challenging myself and maybe even rediscovering old favorites!
 
 
 
Repeat to self over and over: I will not purchase any new products until I have used up 20 items.

January 2013 Julep Maven

 
 
This month's Julep Maven had the theme "Escape and Unwind."
It is all about the neons and nudes!
Not only did I receive 2 nail polishes, but also 3 neon hair ties, a hand & cuticle stick, and "swatch me" stickers! Wow I am impressed!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
The hand and cuticle stick reminds me of a glue stick!!
It is made with Shea Butter, Vitamin C, and E.
It is very soft and has a very pleasant smell to it!
 
 
 
 
 
Madison- Electric neon pink crème
Grace- light pink sheer
 
 
 
 
It came with these cute "Swatch Me" stickers that you put on the lid of the polish so you can see what the polish looks like swatched!
Such a great idea!!
 It came with a sheet of 20 stickers for all of the Julep polishes you may have.
 
 
 
And some adorable neon hair ties!
 
 
 
What did you think of January's Julep Maven box?

Happy New Years!!

 
 
 
Happy New Years everyone!!
 
 I hope you all had a wonderful, safe New Years Eve and Day! I can not even believe it is already 2013! Time sure does fly! 2012 was definitely a year full of ups and downs, but one thing is for sure...God continued to bless me through it all!
 
I am usually not one to really make New Years resolutions and actually stick to them. This year I am determined to work really hard at keeping them.
 
 
 
Here are my resolutions:
 
1. Blog more.
2. Try to eat healthier and work out more.
3. Actually take my vitamins EVERY DAY. (I am really bad about taking them one day and then forgetting for the rest of the week)
4. Cook more for my husband and I.
5. Do something I usually wouldn't do. Step out of my comfort zone! 
6. Be a better person and a role model for someone.
7. Start doing crafts again.
8. Spend more time with my family!
 
 
 
 
So what are you some of your New Years Resolutions?
