I took a 3 week break over December to spend with my family and friends. I was in full on relaxed mode and was not wearing any makeup. There were a few items that were my favourites, these items made me look put together even though I was very chilled. In this post I share some of my favourite summertime items.
I wear makeup from Monday to Thursday during the work week; Friday is my off day :). I try to stick to a simple formula when it comes to my everyday face, I try not to be too experimental in the interest of time. Because of this I pretty much use the same tools to apply my makeup for work purposes. In this post I am sharing some of the brushes that I use, I also try to have backup brushes because I don’t wash my brushes as regularly as I should – so if one is dirty I like have another one that does the same job that I can use.
In 2017 I shared my evening skincare routine on my YouTube channel and on the blog. In the video I mentioned how I put a lot of effort into my evening routine more than my morning routine. I feel that in the evening my skin needs extra care because it’s dealing with all the dirt, grime & makeup from the whole day. In the mornings I keep it simple and do a few steps before applying my makeup – I am usually very short of time in the mornings so a quick morning skincare routine is right up my alley.
Happy 2018 y’all! I really hope that you guys had a great holiday if you were fortunate enough to have some time off. I had a mixed bag holiday, I managed to rest the first part and then it got super busy. We moved house at the end of the year and it was a wonderful and awful idea, wonderful in that we started off the year at our new place and awful in that moving in December is the worst thing that you can do! Trust me!
On the blog front I did some minor changes to the blog including a new logo 🙂 – I had this logo done in Sept/Oct 2017 but I chose to launch it for 2018. I plan to be a bit more consistent with my posts this year, last year did a number on me because motherhood but I am back and ready to rock and roll.
Thank you again for the support for my blog in 2017, it really means a lot! Here’s to growing my blog to greater heights in 2018!
The end of the year is upon us and as per usual I am taking a blog break to enjoy some time off with my family. On a personal level, my life changed by leaps and bounds: I became a mom, so for most of the year I have been trying to navigate my new role while also doing the things that I love. Even though I took a 3 month break and I haven’t published as much content as usual, I’ve had a great year in blogging and it’s all thanks to you guys! I’ll be giving the blog a face lift over the break so it might be off line for a few days – be sure to look out for a fresher looking blog in the new year.
I am hoping that you guys have a fabulous festive season with your loved ones, be sure to get some rest! I will catch up with you in 2018.
Christmas is around the corner and I have a few things that I would love to get, either as a gift from someone else or from me to me :). I love a good wishlist because if ever I have some left over money to spare it’s much easier for me to look at it to help me decide what to buy. I would really advise you to keep a wishlist of your own. So let me share what is on my current wishlist, and if you want to see my previous wishlists you can check here, here and here.
