Hello everyone, it’s been a while! I’ve been a terrible blogger in the month of October, can’t believe how quickly it got away and how little I managed to do on here. I’ve missed you guys! It’s not only been incredibly busy for me, I’ve also gotten into a bit of a funk – not only on my blog but on Instagram too. Lately I felt like I’ve been putting too much pressure on myself and it ended up affecting me a little bit more than I anticipated. Hopefully things will start to look up this month!
When it comes to seasonal beauty, I’m a true believer in wearing whatever you want regardless of what time of the year it is. But naturally, something about spring just makes me feel uplifted and I really look forward to swapping out my daily go-tos when the seasons change. The darker berry tones are replaced by beautiful peachy hues and bright nail polishes; the sultry, heavy scents are equally replaced for more fresh alternatives. I thought since we’re almost a month into spring, it’d be nice to share what I like to reach for on this glorious time of the year!
September has now come to an end – crazy! It’s been a bit over six months since I first started blogging back in April, and it was also my busiest blogging month, clocking in 10 posts which I am so proud of. I’ve learned a lot, not only about the blogging process but about myself; and most importantly, I met and interacted with so many of you, which was definitely the highlight!
It’s my favourite time of the month again – monthly favourites time! August was definitely one of those months where my main focus was skincare… I have had some bad times, guys; but nonetheless, I managed to shop my stash and re-discover some old loves that I had sitting in the back of my makeup drawer. Yes, even though August was a prominent month full of new releases, I still showed love to my ‘oldies’!
There is no such thing as too much lipstick… lipgloss… lip balm. You feel? I’m glad we both agree. I sometimes have a big swatch session and pull out a mountain of lippies and sit on my bed admiring what I’ve managed to acquire in the past year or two (wow, I sound cool!). It also amuses me to see what I’ve collected in my handbag during the week – I often end up finding 5+ lip products – a girl needs options! So, I thought, why not share what I’ve been carrying around the most lately? Surprise, surprise – they’re mostly nudes.
For the most part, July was laid back, in the sense that I took it easy on putting makeup on. I must admit, it felt great to step outside completely bare-faced, and to appreciate myself without worrying too much about what I look like. It’s been refreshing! So, when I went to plan this post, I froze – what have I been loving? Actually, a lot – not just during the month of July but in the past couple of months. I went from being blank, to having way too many things to talk about… standard. I decided to make this not just a monthly favourites, but also a collection of fab products in my stash I think deserve a mention.
The months keep rolling by, and June has already turned into July. I don’t want to talk about it… but I do have a lot to talk about beauty wise! There were only a couple of new additions into my collection, but they were solid performers; the rest were pre-existing loves I had neglected but managed to re-discover. That’s the beauty of blogging – rotating through products and falling back in love with oldies but goodies!
I am back with the second installment of my winter essentials; this time, focusing on skincare and fragrances. I could have picked many more items than what I have, but tried to keep it simple – these are a few of the things I’ve been enjoying and reaching for lots since the weather got colder. It’s all about nourishing the skin, and the scents that pull me through these shorter days!
Ah… Winter. The days get shorter, our skin resembles that of an iguana, our lips crack; and suddenly, leaving the comfort of our warm beds in the morning is nothing short of torturous.
Without any warning, it seems, the warmth of the sun on our skin is a distant memory. “I will never take another Summer day for granted”. I trust this is an accurate representation of most Australians at current!
However, makeup and some pretty nail polish definitely make this part of the year a little more bearable! I will show you the shades of beauty products I reach for the most during the colder months. Ultimately, though, wear the hues you feel most comfortable in – whether that be a deep berry shade or a hot pink! There are no rules.
There’s nothing I like more than a favourites post. It gets me thinking about the products I reach for the most and those I couldn’t be without – so much makeup appreciation! This one is extra special, because it’s a collaboration with my lovely friend Sorren from Young Mum Stuff – yay!!! I highly recommend checking out this beauty’s blog, and Instagram feed. They’re both perfection – you’ll find a mixture of beauty, lifestyle, home decor, recipes, and lots more!
