My 2019 Goals & Resolutions

Hello friends!

Today, I wanted to share the goals I’ve set for myself in 2019!  Every year I set a number of goals I want to accomplish, and I love sharing them with all of you!  It helps keep me accountable, which I definitely need sometimes.

You’ll notice that some of my goals are very straight forward, like do X amount of things, while others are habits I want to develop throughout the year & never have a true “completion”.

Ofra On Holiday Set in Packaging - A Midwest Belle

First of all, how cute is the packaging it comes in? I know that doesn’t make a difference on product quality, but it always provides a good first impression and overall is a nice touch.  Ofra has recently rebranded their products, so if the white, square look isn’t familiar, that’s why!

The On Holiday set comes with three products, all mini sized: a Rodeo Drive highlighter, and Americano and Tuscany in their liquid lipstick formula.
