Highlights of 2012

With only 2 days left till the New Year, I've been reflecting on the highlights of 2012. It was possibly the most tiring, but also most exciting year of my life so far. Why? My little boy Luca was born. Here are the rest of the highlights of my year.

1. I started 2012 already 3 months pregnant and I spent the first 6 months of the year getting bigger and bigger.

2. I spent the second 6 months of the year getting the hang of this motherhood business (and no, I don't have it all figured out yet!)

3. With a newborn baby sucking up all my time and energy I worked out how to do my make up in record time.

4. While pregnant I got into DIYs, making my own jewellery and even nailpolish with eyeshadow.

5. I also got obsessed with Essie nail polishes as being free of nasty chemicals they were safe to use during pregnancy.

6. I fell in love with the most beautiful, suit-all shade of blush ever.

7. I finally found a foundation that I worked well on my dry skin.
MAC Studio Sculpt foundations in NC25 and NW25

8. And a hair mask that worked on my dry hair.

9. I still love my bright lipsticks.

10. But also know how to get more use out of a too pale lipstick.

Overall I've had a great year, and I'm looking forward to 2013 being even better. Blogging-wise I feel I haven't been able to devote as much energy to Makeup and Macaroons as I would have liked to, but I'll be concentrating on that in the new year. In the next few weeks I'd like to run a survey here as I'd love to get your feedback on how you think my blog is going, and what you'd like to see more of here, but until then... Have a Happy and Safe New Year!
