So many bloggers and YouTubers always make a post about why they quit. I’m not going to say I quit as such more that I just lost my passion and groove. I’ve always wanted to start a blog. I enjoy writing and being creative.
Working with children, I get to be creative in the arts and crafts sense but not so much the writing sense. I love to sit down and write these blog posts and give my opinion on products or share my experiences which is what I would like to do. Id love to be able to expand on the passion and perhaps write a book one day.
But as for “quitting”, I just wanted to find myself and get to a point in life where I felt happy and that I had a purpose. When I first started this blog, I was so fixated on the idea that I was going to make money and become “famous”. Little did I know that is wasn’t going to be an overnight fix. You have to put in the work to achieve anything. For me now this platform is for me to have fun. I want to learn and grow in the creative industry, give it a proper go this time without the expectations on anything.
So with that being said, here’s to 2020 and fresh starts and getting out of your comfort zone.
Back at it again with the monthly favourites. This year has just gone far too quickly and I can’t believe it is already October. This month I have a variety of things, from beauty to food and a new edition to my family.
I was in need of some new shampoo and whilst I was in the supermarket a few weeks ago I came across a Tresemme one that was one sale for $6. I picked it up not really expecting a miracle, but I am quite impressed. I found that it almost dried out my hair (but in a good way – if that is possible). It seemed to wash out easily and my hair felt really clean afterwards . This shampoo also claims to keep your hair from getting greasy and that you can last up to a week between washes. I will say that a week is probably not going to happen but I did get a solid 4 days out of it without my hair going greasy. I’ll continue to use it and see if it improves with time.
I have also been trying a new face scrub this month. I have always been a fan of St. Ives products so I thought I would try another scrub. This time, I got the green tea one. I must say it is a lot fresher than the oat scrub I had. I feel like it gives my skin a really good clean and has definitely minimised my blackheads.
Recently Mum took a quick trip to Sephora and picked up a new Zoeva brush for me. I was in need of a new bronzer/blush brush and I have been loving it. The bristles are so soft and it applies bronzer so smooth and effortlessly. I feel as though I don’t need to blend as much. I will definitely be getting more Zoeva brushes. If you recommend any let me know, please!!
A strange favourite but I have been particularly into fruit this month. I don’t know if it is the Spring season or what but I have just been eating so much fruit. In particular, I have been loving pear, kiwi and watermelon. I will have this combination almost every day and if not I would probably eat 3 or 4 kiwis a day. Bring on the Summer fruits!
And last but not least…. our new kittens!!! My family have been sort of talking about getting a kitten for a while to add to our endless number of pets (well a dog, cat and rabbit). At the beginning of the month, Mum and I were sitting having coffee one day and whilst I was scrolling on Instagram I found a picture of two kittens at our local cat shelter ready for adoption. I showed mum and she instantly said: “Oh let’s go have a look at them!”. We hopped in the car and within minutes we were there. We went into the first adoption shed and they weren’t there so we went into the second and as soon as we walked in we saw their adorable faces. They were two sisters; Teddy and Tilly. We both melted and just knew we, had to have both, we couldn’t very well separate them especially because there was two. It has been nice to experience having baby pets, as both our dog and cat are fairly old I don’t remember what it is like to actually raise and train pets. They have settled in so well, it definitely helps to have two as they don;t get lonely and don’t require your full attention 24/7. Adopting from shelters is such a great way to help animals to be rehomed or help them to be taken out of a terrible situation and given a second chance at life.
This was Tilly (is the short hair one) and Teddy (is the medium hair one) the first day we had them.
This is them 2 weeks ago, as you can see they have settled in quite nicely! 🙂
My best friend has recently started a youtube channel. She is amazing at makeup and she wants to commit to getting heaps of new videos up this year. Her channel is still a work in progress but she as so many great ideas. It would mean so much to her if you could check out her youtube channel!
