New Year, New Blog? | 2017

Hey everyone! I hope 2017 has been treating you well! Can you believe we are already at the end of January?! Where has the time gone?

I intended to do a “Best of Beauty 2016” post, but ultimately decided I would rather post my resolutions regarding my blog and my life for the year of 2017! So, here they are…

** Make sure you read to the end to see a MAJOR CHANGE coming soon!!**

1. When it comes to posting- I want to learn to let go, quit obsessing, and just push the “publish” button. I have a bad habit of reading, re-reading, stressing, and over editing before I let a post go live, and that needs to stop. I need to loosen up, not be worried if people are going to like what I have to say, and just do me. With this, in 2017, I hope to become more confident in my blog and myself!

2. I want to up my game here on WordPress. I want to invest in my blog and my subscribers and hopefully host my first giveaway! This has been something that has been really on my heart the past few months and I hope to follow though this year… maybe even soon?

3. I am striving everyday to better myself. Most people don’t know, but for a little over a year now I have seriously struggled with anxiety and depression. This year, what has been at the core of my anxiety isn’t going to control me. Not. Any. More. I am DONE with being controlled by something that doesn’t deserve the ability to hold that power!

4. This year, I want to step more outside my comfort zone. I have never really allowed myself to ignore my fears and tackle my bucket list, so it’s time I put my big girl panties on and just do it!

5. Succeeding in school and being active in my sorority are big musts for me this year. I had big changes last semester by joining Alpha Phi, and declaring my major as Integrated Marketing Communications with Public Relations and Sports Communications specializations! I want to engulf myself in putting my best foot forward every time I step foot on campus, for me and Alpha Phi.

6. As some of you will already know, I got my first big girl camera for Christmas this year! I really want to become a better photographer and maybe even take a class on it.. I will be the first to admit, I don’t know what I’m doing when it comes to my camera, but I will be doing my very best each time I snap a photo.

7. 2016 will be the last year of OhMyMakeupObsession as we know it. I am revamping this site, upgrading, and changing our name. I will hopefully be starting some of these changes today, after this post is published. I hope you all are as excited as I am!!

Writing on OhMyMakeupObsession has been so good to and for me. I have loved every second of having this blog and growing with you guys! This year, for me, is all about “out with the old, and in with the new.” So…..

Without further ado… Our new name is….

Beauty Break with Betsy!!!

I am so pumped for this transition and this new year! I hope y’all are ready for a great ride!

Thank you for everything 2016 brought me. I am beyond grateful!

XOXO.

Life Update | 2016

Hey guys and happy holiday season! I hope this post finds you all doing great and as excited to celebrate Christmas as I am! It is FINALLY getting cold in Mississippi, my tree is decorated, and my last day of class was last Friday! So you know what that means…. FINALS WEEK IS FINALLY HERE!!!! I have been getting a max of four hours of sleep each night night, so we’ll see what this week brings. Hopefully it goes better than expected…

I just want to apologize for being MIA yet again. I have been swamped with school work this semester and am preparing for finals as we speak! Since it was my first semester back full time (more than full time really), I needed a chance to figure out how blogging would fit into my schedule, and obviously didn’t do a very good job. BUT, I am trying my best to fix that and thankfully have a month to figure it out before classes start back again.

This semester has been a huge change for me… From declaring my major for the 57th time to Integrated Marketing Communications with Public Relations and Sports Communications specialties, to being Prayer Group Leader in Phi Lamb, cousins getting engaged, and finally pledging and becoming an official member of Alpha Phi Fraternity! Things have been a whirlwind and I hope you guys can understand where I am coming from and be patient with me.

Y’all.. I am seriously so excited for the things to come and the posts I have coming up this month! I have several product reviews and holiday looks coming soon, so keep your eyes pealed for that!

Don’t forget to meet me at here each SUNDAY and WEDNESDAY (starting December 11th) during the months of December and January for brand new posts!

Update//New Schedule | 2016

Hello everyone! It’s been two weeks since my last post.. Part of the reason being, I went out of town for the Sugar Bowl, and the other being, I’ve written and re-written about five different posts, but lacked the dedication to actually publish any of them.

I have edited this one about 27 different times and then finally trashed it… I think I have Blogger’s Block… BUT, I’m just going to bite the bullet and publish it anyways.

This is just a short little post about my new schedule for 2016. I have not had a schedule before..granted, I’ve only had this blog for a few months.. but I want to be more organized and try to stick to a certain time to write. SO, going into the spring, I will be uploading content FOR SURE on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s! Since I have Ole Miss baseball season tickets, and the season is coming up, I may not always be able to do this, but I will also be trying to get a third one up on Sunday’s, as well. Do not hold me to that though, as some games are on Sunday’s and I will be going to them.

Also, you may have noticed the new change in layout–let me know what you think of this nice change for 2016 in the comments below! It is still a work in progress, but I think it’s going beautifully!

Alright guys, that’s it for this update post. Thanks so much for reading and following me into 2016! I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year!
