So far, 2018 has been pretty hard… and we’re only 4 days in!
My little boy ended up getting sick right after Christmas and all the way through to New Years. He’s still coughing and has a bit of a runny nose, but seems to be improving with each day!
(My little sick croaky singer. 😍😭)
Me on the other hand… I’m officially 28 weeks preggo, and all the stress of the holidays, dealing with a sick toddler, and being uncomfortable during pregnancy has finally caught up to me. I’ve been down and out for the past few days… I’m hoping by tomorrow I’ll be feeling completely better!
So yeah, my 2018 started off pretty rough! But, I’m still really optimistic and hoping to make this year an amazing one!
I’ve decided to revamp my blog, by embedding my videos directly into my posts, and being more consistent with product reviews. I also want to try and post makeup tutorials using pictures as examples and to show what I’m doing, rather than purely using videos.
I’m not making any promises though, pregnancy and momming has totally been kicking my butt! And as much as I’d like to say I know I’ll for sure be able to keep up with a blog, and two kids… I’m not going to kid myself. (no pun intended).
So! Here’s to a new year! And hopefully a fruitful one with beauty blogging and whatnot. ❤
I haven’t been posting on here at all lately… And I feel so bad for it!
I’ve been focusing my energy on my Instagram account. And I’m about to be trying to revamp my Youtube channel.
But! I’m going to try to get some more written reviews and links to my Youtube reviews up on here as well. (maybe some of my IG reviews).
I’m about to be starting on a new program with a company and will be supplied with quite a bit of products to make content on! I’m really excited and it’s a pretty big step in the right direction for my beauty blogging.
This coming November I’ll be hitting my 1 year anniversary of beauty blogging. Sometimes I feel like I haven’t come nearly as far as I was hoping in a year, and other times I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot. I’m hoping to accomplish even more this next coming year!
Another reason why I haven’t been keeping up with Youtube and my blog as well is… I’m expecting baby number 2!
I thought my first pregnancy was tiring, but now that I have to chase a 2 year old around on top of being pregnant I feel like I could nap literally all day long.
And on top of being behind already, we moved the end of August and then my husband started working 6 days a week at his job, so we’re still not fully unpacked, and I haven’t gotten my new set up finished yet. It’s been a very busy past 2 months.
I’m excited for the change, and the new house and new baby. But it’s definitely taking up a lot of my focus and time, and more often than not I’m looking for a chance to rest.
But anyways~ I wanted to share a little bit with those of you who might still be around reading this. And hopefully I’ll eventually get some pictures of our new house up!
I got this little guy in my ipsy bag this month, (I’ll do a video review on the whole bag later) and it’s by far my favorite item I received. I love makeup products, but since I dye my hair a lot, it’s nice to get a product to help keep it healthy. I thought my hair was pretty soft before (especially for being bleached so much), but this stuff took it to a whole new level of silky soft!
It distributes really well, and I didn’t have to use too much despite my hair being super thick. (Usually it takes half a bottle of conditioner to notice a difference, 🙄 I’m sure some of you feel my pain). Not to mention it smells amazing! It also protects color treated hair and you only use it once a week, so even this little sample bottle is going to last me quite sometime. A regular sized bottle goes for about $8 at Ulta, which is a really good price for a deep conditioner that actually does it’s job. It’s also sulfate free, which is an extra plus! I’ll definitely be switching to this for my deep condition go to. 😊
So the other day when I was in Ulta, they were having a buy one get one 50% off brush sale for select brands. Real Techniques was one of those brands, and since I’ve heard so many good things about them (and they’re easy on the bank account) I finally got myself a small set […]
