365 Day --wait for it-- Challenge

I'm trying something new! A 365 day challenge.

I really wanted to push myself to do a 365 day challenge this year. As much as I love crafty things, I knew I wouldn't be able to make something each and every day... it just wouldn't work out with me.

So I've decided to do something to help solve a problem I've had with outfit posts here: I don't usually wear makeup to work. Sometimes I just put my hair up and I think it looks less than fabulous, and even if my outfit is outstanding... I'm just not confident enough to put up 'naked' face pictures of myself.

This brings me to my challenge decision:
Everyday, for 365 days, I will take a self-portrait first thing in the morning. No makeup unless I forgot to wash it off, no brush, no mirror, no digital retouching (none. Ah!).

I need to get past my insecurity issues :) This is a bit nerve-wracking for me. I'm going to document my progress over at 365 Sleepy Days. I just created this in the last hour, so hopefully I'll have time to really design it later. Right now you can visit it to read more about what led me to this conclusion, and as of January 1st I'll be posting my sleepy self-portraits!

Is anyone else doing a 365 project? Ever attempted or completed one? I'd love to hear about it!


  1. This sounds like an interesting goal. It could be really cool if you stick with it!

    Also, I'm sure you look great even without makeup. We all have our insecurities :)

    1. I hope to, just put up the first couple days!

  2. Hey! I love the idea of your 365 Project! I'm sharing my 365 project at and you can read about it at Can't wait to follow along with your year!
