2012 Resolutions: Looking Back

It's that time of year again! Time to look back and assess ourselves against the resolutions we made last year.

As a reminder, here's what I resolved to do last year:


The results are actually better than anticipated!

I DO wash my face every night now (Helen will be so proud). I bought all white bedding and I just can't bear to get in there at night and risk getting makeup all over my precious cloud of a bed.

I did not lose the last 15lbs. Oh well.

Save more money definitely did not happen. A new car and a move nearly drained all of my savings, actually. However, I did start making more money, and because of that I have big savings plans for 2013.

"Buy less clothes" - hahaha.

Keep up with healthy habits - I'm calling this a win. I slipped up in some areas but made huge advances in other areas, such as the next resolution:

I RAN A 5K. Can you even believe it?! Stay tuned for another post on this.

Focus on the positive - I actually think I've made progress on this one, especially recently. It's definitely something I didn't focus on throughout the year as much as I wanted to, but it's something I'm working on for next year. I'm literally in the middle of watching The Secret right now as a first step for this.

Simplify - again, still working on it. This is something I constantly need to remind myself of. I do think I've gotten better though.

I've started thinking about my 2013 resolutions and I'll be posting about those in the new year.

How did you do on your resolutions this year?

Sparkle is a Color: I'm Back!

I'm back! 

Welcome to the new Sparkle is a Color! I've missed my little blog.

As you can see, she's gotten a bit of a facelift. I've been mucking about in Photoshop & Photoshop Elements and slowly but surely I'm getting the hang of some things! Of course, I've only been playing with the free trials, so once they run out I'm screwed. I still have a few more tweaks to make, but I was too excited to get back to blogging to wait for it to be finished.

Henceforth Sparkle is a Color is a lifestyle blog chronicling my life and all the things I love about it. I've missed writing about my little adventures and things going on in my life. I've missed taking the occasional outfit photo too, so expect some of those to be thrown in as well.

I'm gonna keep it pretty lax around here - blogging when I feel inspired and not forcing myself to write something when I'm just not feeling it.

You can also expect more words and journal type posts that won't be photo-centric.

My life is full of exciting changes and opportunities right now and I can't wait to start chronicling everything!

Thanks for joining in on my journey.

xx, Katrina
