Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great rest and you have enjoyed the slowdown. I have enjoyed it almost too much and I am not ready to start back on Monday. Daily naps have become one of my favorite activities and I have stayed in my pajamas until noon with no complaints. I am ready for a restart, a health jumpstart, and a clean slate. I usually don’t make goals until later in January. I am going to approach it differently than in years past because lets be honest, 2020 was hard.
I cleaned out my closet over the holiday, donated clothes, and realized there are a few categories I would be okay with not purchasing in 2021. Bras, underwear, probably workout pants, and skincare. I could make it well into the middle of 2021 without purchasing lotions or serums. The one thing I am missing is a good eye cream. I love the Sisley one, but the price is high and I am looking for something more affordable. I did not love the Caudalie one, so in the theme of clean beauty, I purchased this one from Kiehls. I promise to follow up with feedback.
