Each Day Is Fresh… With No Mistakes

So here we are in 2012! That means the 80’s were 30 years ago. So crazy. Okay back to the present… I chose a word for this year that I’ve probably chosen before but really need to concentrate on it this year and that is… wealth. I’m talking about building wealth in regards to money, but also in health and relationships. A holistic kind of wealth. January is a great time to set new business goals and think of alternate ways to earn income, so I will be focusing on that this month. And making time for exercise and cooking healthy meals!

Last year my word was stretch and I did manage to do some of the things I listed in this post. I saw Facebook friends in real life, did more home-cooking, landed a bigger client, and traveled to England.

I wanted to share a few of the awesome Christmas gifts I got this year, as they were particularly good.

This Revlon hairdryer is awesome… After we went on our vacation to England, I came home to find my old hairdryer could not compare to the dryers I’d been using in hotels and homes on our trip. So I did some research on Amazon, came up with this inexpensive dryer and put it on my Christmas list. Let’s just say, I love it.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish… My mum-in-law gave me this (along with the Instant Boost tonic and face mask) and I was instantly excited. I have never used a skin care system before. I’m more of a bit of this and then a bit of that, kind of girl. So having these products makes me feel like a grown-up. I have very very sensitive skin and so far (I’ve been using it since Christmas day) these products do not irritate my skin. The only sort of downside for me is I don’t have a washer/dryer in the house, so keeping the muslin cloths clean is a little tricky. So far I haven’t notice a huge improvement in my skin (like clearing out my pores) but my skin does feel softer and it looks brighter. UPDATE: I do still like the products, but I’m using Sibu cleanser instead as I was having trouble dealing with the muslin cloths.

All Creatures Great & Small: Series 1… I can’t tell you how many times we’ve watched this series, but it’s a lot. So nice to have our own copy now. Can’t recommend it highly enough if you are at all a fan of BBC period shows.

Thank You notes… Unfortunately, I don’t have them here with me so can’t provide a link. But nevertheless, I love the idea of giving someone a box of Thank You notes for Christmas, as you know the recipient will have lots of them to write come new year. Sadly, I’ve only managed to put together one thank you note for Christmas gifts… only because I pretty much said a hearty thank you to most people in person. But I received a thank you note yesterday and thought it was very classy. Also… who doesn’t like to get mail that’s not a credit card offer or a bill?

So there you go… some ideas for 2012. Hope it’s off to a great start!
