I can’t believe that we’re starting the last week of January! For those of you who made New Year’s resolutions, now is a good time to check in, evaluate your progress, and get re-inspired. This year, I decided not to make a resolution (which has its benefits). And this article from Savvy Sugar made me realize that some of my “bad” habits aren’t so bad. While it’s always admirable to strive to be the best you possible, it’s also important to embrace the qualities that make you unique. Let us know what you love about you at @MochiMag #MakeupMonday.

I cannot resist reading articles that promise to cut down my morning primping time, and these 10 tips from College Fashion were no exception.
