Hello beautiful people of the Internet, how are you? Long time no see, at least on this platform!
I took a much needed blogging break for a few months and I am feeling *into* it once again. However, I make zero promises to you. That’s because I don’t want to feel the immense pressure to post something the second I get a new collection anymore. That, alongside the whole changing world of social media in general, led to a major burn-out for me. It was no fun anymore. I didn’t really WANT to post new things, but felt I HAD to. That’s completely the opposite of how this all started to begin with and I am trying to get back to that feeling of fun, excitement and creative-ness that I felt in 2008 when I started this hobby.
Having said that, don’t expect this to be all nail polish and makeup swatches anymore. There are a couple reasons for this. Honestly, swatching nail polish is my least favorite “chore” of the entire blog and it’s SO damaging to my super dry and brittle nails now. Of course I still will be posting swatches, just not 100% of the time. As far as makeup, I am feeling a bit over it lately. Inundated. Overwhelmed. Bored. After awhile it all starts to look the same and honestly, all I wear 90% of the time on my eyes is mascara. I haven’t had the time/energy/interest in eyeshadows and liners lately. Gimmie fresh glowy skin, blush and a bold lip and I am good to go! I will still be featuring brands like Urban Decay, MAC, etc. from time to time though, so I am not completely putting a halt to it.
Never fear though, this will not turn into a fitness blog or me reviewing household items like the latest Swiffer or Jiffy peanut butter. The same things I have been into my whole life and all along this journey might be featured though such as books, pets, music, Netflix, shoes, clothes, etc.
Ciao for now!
