Hello everybody, I hope everyone had a fabulous, crazy and safe New Year! I, unfortunately was working, but one of my resolutions for next year is to not work NYE, unless I’m planning an awesome PR event! I also want to expand the blog in 2015, which I touched on in my “Getting Real: No Farewell Here” post. Some personal resolutions for the coming year are to establish my career in public relations or a related field and move out of South Jersey, I also want to make it to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which I believe is happening in May (I’m squealing already!), save for a trip to Europe, attend an outdoor music festival and finally live by my favorite statement, “Create your own happiness”.
Thank you to everyone who has read this blog, it truly means so much to me. I love creating looks and supplying reviews. I’m sorry I could not get a New Year’s Eve look posted before the new year, but I’m leaving all the products I used for my NYE look, along with cheaper alternatives below. This look works for any fancy night out, even Valentine’s Day! Let me know if there are any posts you guys would like to see in 2015, I have lots of ideas already brewing. Anyway on to the makeup….
