Top Five Fashion and Beauty Resolutions for 2013

Happy New Year’s and welcome to resolution week on Fizz and Frosting! I’m kicking the New Year off right with some beauty and fashion-related resolutions that I can stick to (because let’s be honest, vowing to skip the french fries at my favorite restaurant never lasts more than a few weeks). So without further ado, my top five resolutions for 2013:

1. I vow to wear red lipstick for more than just the holidays. Red is year-round appropriate and I will embrace it.

2. I will be more creative with using my “out-of-season” pieces. I started this year, but next year I’ll do even better. Under the bed boxes, be gone.

3. Speaking of under the bed boxes, I will be better about getting rid of clothing I never wear. If it hides under my bed nine months out of the year, I probably don’t need it. (And when I say “get rid,” that does not mean that they will stay in boxes in the guest room all year. I won’t let myself get away with that kind of laziness in 2013!)

4. I promise to actually visit some thrift stores in Richmond. There are plenty only a few miles from my house that sell quality, high end merchandise, and I’m determined to save some bucks. Hey, I might even consign some things I’m ready to part with!

5. I vow to be more adventurous with my hair. The last several months I’ve been in  “sock bun, straighten, curl, repeat” mode. I’d really like to mix it up and add more styles in my repotoire.

Do these styles look familiar?

    So cute, love the idea Lauren! I also am wanting to visit more thrift stores and find more fabulous second hand pieces {for both my closet and my apartment!}. I hope you have a fabulous 2013 – can’t wait to see what you have in store!

    I think those are great resolutions. Especially #1 since red lips look so great on you! (something I’m especially jealous of because I can’t pull it off). Can’t wait to see what everyone else has to say and to meet some new gals 🙂

    ooooh Love the red lip resolution. I want to find the right shade of red for me. The shade I currently have is too clown-like, so I never rock the red lip.

    One of my resolutions should be to get rid of some of the clothes that I sadly just don’t wear any more too 🙁 I love your goal of trying to use out of season pieces, that’s definitely something that I tried this past year and I’m hoping that I get a little better at it lol. As for mixing it up with your hair, I think it always looks beautiful, not to mention you have the prettiest sock buns!

    I too have vowed to be more creative with my hair, especially with heatless styles! Also I definitely think you should rock red lipstick all the time – it looks stunning on you!
