NOTE: So much has happened since my last post. I won’t go into too much detail because this isn’t a personal blog (it’s a beauty blog… mostly haha). I left my old job and started another job earlier this month. My business is really starting to take off and takes up most of my time. Health-wise? Well, like I mentioned in the last post, I received a diagnosis after suffering for almost a year and am currently working on reversing this diagnosis. It hasn’t been easy. In fact it damn near tore me down emotionally. But once I started thinking more positively and made drastic changes in my diet and exercise routine, things have REALLY started to change for the better. I’m noticing HUGE improvements in my mood, too. I mean… I’m here… NOW. That’s got to count for something, right?

I swear, I really didn’t mean to just abandon this place. But when health matters get in the way that really changes things. And I felt I had little to no control over it all. I might not have control over most things, but I do control whether or not I live rather than just survive. I also choose whether or not to be happy. And I choose to be here. I choose to do the things that make me happy. Because choosing happiness really is the key here. But I’m extremely stubborn and it took me a very long time to realize that. Better late than never?

That being said, I have a whole bunch of goodies to photograph and swatch. Yep, all from much older collections too lol. But they’re just too beautiful not to photograph and share with the world. I’m sure you’ve seen it all about a million times by now. Pretty soon we can make that a million and one!

I hope you’ve all enjoyed your Summer! I personally cannot wait for Autumn!

First, I want to apologize for the lack of updates. I promise this isn’t going to be the norm around here. I recently moved, started a new job, and I’m still managing my new business which is just about to get off the ground. Not to mention I finally received a diagnoses after having suffered…

Philosophy Loveswept Perfume I only have a few perfume bottles sitting on top of my toolbox. Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia, DKNY Be Delicious, Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh, and Coach Poppy Flower. I’m VERY picky when it comes to fragrances. I love getting those perfume samples with my online orders, but rarely order…
