Happy New Year!

Hello, my Pretties!

Technically, we are 11 hours and 33 minutes away from 2012 here in Texas.  But, I know we will all be out and about celebrating and welcoming in the New Year.  So, I just wanted to take the time right now and wish you all a very Happy and Safe New Year!

I wish for all of you to have an even better year in 2012 than you did in 2011.  I know I need a new, fresh and clean slate.  I will not lie, 2011 was a rough and tough year but I do have high hopes for 2012.  No pressure 2012!

I have so many goals I wish to obtain in the new year.  Whether or not they will be accomplished is only something time will tell.  But my main New Year's Resolution is to start making YouTube videos.  That is the one thing I want the most and the one thing that scares me the most.  That is part of the reason why I need to do this in the upcoming year...just to prove to myself that I can do anything!

And you can too.  Whatever your hopes and your dreams may be, if you want them bad enough, I hope they come true for you.

And since I wanted some photos to go along with this post, I decided to post some of my favorite looks I did on myself in 2011.  Maybe you can use one of these looks to inspire your New Year's Eve look.

Well, my dears, that is all for this year.  This will be my last blog post for 2011.  Tomorrow January 1st, will be my one year bloggerversary and I am so excited!  Starting up a blog was last year's New Year's Resolution and I think the only one in my entire life that I actually followed through with.  I am so proud of myself.

My goal was so have 200 subscribers and 200 blog posts.  As of this post, at 3:51 p.m., I have 206 posts (this one makes 207) and 198 subscribers.  I hope my wish comes true and there are 200 subbies in the morning when I wake up!  Oh, subbie fairy, hear my cry!

Thank you all so, so very much!  I cannot find the right words to express my gratitude.  You all have made this blog was it is, better than I thought it would ever be!  I started this blog for myself and now, I do it for you.  Again, thank you all so much for all the sweet comments you have left behind for me to read and for taking the time to view my blog in the first place.

I pray that you all will have a wonderful night filled with friends and family, laughter and love, and most of all, faith and hope for the New Year.  Be safe.  God bless you all, tonight and always.

All my love and gratitude,
--Lisa Martinez
