What do you want to achieve in 2012?

Firstly, I just want to apologise for not posting a DIY Monday yesterday. I am getting quite busy at the moment which doesn't leave me with much time to do any "DIY". I am really sorry! I know I was getting a lot of positive feedback on the idea, but I think I will have to post them when I have the time to, I hope that is ok!

So this may not be totally beauty related, but I wanted to share with you my aims for this year and hopefully find out what your aims are :)

Blog related

Hold a beauty swap –We all know how hard it is to get certain products and I would love to swap beauty products with someone in another country. If anyone is interested then let me know as I would love to do this!

Meet followers and other bloggers – This is high on my list! If anyone is planning on holding a meet up in London or nearby then let me know. I am quite a shy person therefore I would be quite nervous, but I would definitely love to do this :)

Hold a competition – This is likely to happen when I hit a certain number of followers, but I want to think of a worthy prize to say thank you for all the support I have received. Therefore it may take me a while to decide, but there will be one.
Reply to more comments - I promise you I do read all you comments, I just find it hard to reply to them all. It's not because I get too many or anything, its purely that I often read the comments on my phone and by the time I get on my laptop I forget which I have replied to etc. I think I will change to Disqus soon as it is much easier to reply that way.

Life related

Now onto a few things I would like to achieve in my life, I won’t bore you with the details.

♥ Move in with the boyfriend – Quite likely towards the end of the year, where we plan to move to London. The house above would be rather nice....one can dream.

Get onto a graduate scheme in London – I am still unsure what I want to do exactly but I have a few interviews lined up and have been applying to anything that sounds interesting.

Go back to the USA – I miss that place! Not sure where exactly, I would love to go back to California or New York City, but somewhere new would also be good.

Can anyone relate? Let me know what your aims are in 2012!

Also please do let me know if anyone is interested in a beauty swap or meet up.

Lots of Love,

Carissa xxx

  4. @Tamsin Aw thank you, I hope so too :) I never know how to set up a parcel swap so I thought this would generate some interest maybe!

    @April I'm not sure! I was looking at that last night, it may be good though? Are you going to? We should arrange something if we both decide to go :)

  5. I can related to some of it, I'm dying to move out, not with a boyfriend, just in general, I'd be happy with my own little 2 bed or something. And to go back to America, I need to go back to New York, so badly

  11. I like Disqus because you can directly reply to a person, and I couldn't figure out how to do that on Blogger itself.

    1. You can do it on blogger now! The only annoying thing is it doesn't send an email to you to say that I replied, so its not MUCH better to be honest :(

  17. Hey - stumbled across your blog at Hayley's Itsonlymakeupbutiloveit, and just wanted to say how lovely it is - you've got some great topics!
    The beauty swap sounds like such a good idea - I'd love to do that with France; they have such amazing skincare!
    You've also got a really similar daily routine to me - suuuper jealous of your Naked eye palette though, I have yet to budget one in!

    I'm a follower - feel free to have a gander at mine and return the favour if you likey!

  21. I was thinking about going to the only way is blogging event but I'm such a newbie that I wouldn't know anyone ha! A meet up is such a good idea but it just depends who's in the area you live in. Alas!! Love the blog :)
