15 Things for 2015!

If you've been a visitor of my blog for a while now, then you know the drill that happens at the end of the year here on the Files. I choose my Top 14 of 2014 around the end of January and then create a list of things I hope to do, accomplish, etc in the coming year. So, looking back at my 14 Things for 2014 post, let's see if I failed miserably or just missed a few! A few of them I will be carrying forward to 2015. I'm backdating this post because...ya know. 

14 Things for 2014
  1. Post at least 8 times each month. No "I'm busy" excuses! Hmmm, I failed 5 months...BUT a few other months had 14-15 posts so it as evens out ya know?! Of course there's that whole not-one-post-in-December thing but...eh.
  2. Complete 18 swatches of new polishes. Not even close...only 3 swatches. How is that possible?!
  3. Wear the same color (but not specific polish) for a whole month and blog it. Ex: "Mauves all May" or "Maroons all March"...although that's way to specific so I'll have to do a more general "blues" or "purples" for a month instead. Totally forgot about this! Will carry it forward!
  4. Restart my Toetally Tuesdays posts. Nope. Failed.
  5. Complete a First Friday Favorites post every month. Lol, I need to stop thinking I will do this! Trying it for ONE MORE YEAR and then I will abandon it.
  6. Try a new design technique. I think I did do this this year!
  7. Bake more. What can I say? I like cookies... I made a few cake pops and I think a cake...so yeah I did this!
  8. Reach 100 amazing followers and do a giveaway to celebrate. Done and done! Totally awesome!
  9. Complete a nail design for every major holiday in the US. Nope, missed the last few. Will carry this through to 2015.
  10. Complete a cross-stitch project. I completed the one for Steph and Matt! Of course, I started another that is NOT finished. I'll blog about that later!
  11. Watermark all my blog photos. That's a huge undertaking...
  12. Buy a nail polish from the CoverGirl Hunger Games collection. I think I got the orange one!
  13. Visit Maine (to see my best college buddy!) this summer. Nope. I was working :(
  14. Last but not least, review this list January 1, 2015 and create 15 things for 2015. DID IT!
Alrighty, it looks like I failed miserably. That's ok though, that's what being a blogger is all about! Set some goals, miss them, and keep trying! In the spirit of thinking I will do better...here are my 15 for 2015!

  1. i always admire all that, i always tell to myself i will make resolutions but i never do, i also don't think it would be good for my mood if, as it is very likely to happen, i'd end up seeing i didn't do some, many or all of them. good job, always remember to pat yourself on the back!
