I’m so excited to say that this is my 100th blog post! I know that doesn’t seem like a huge number to a lot of people but it’s a big deal to me. I started this blog as a way to showcase some of the things that I learned throughout university and college. It was a way to show people that I knew how to create content and market it to a wider audience. But it’s really become a passion of mine lately! I’ve love being able to share all of my thoughts on makeup and beauty here. I’ve been a bit of a bad blogger lately and barely even posted anything here and on Instagram over the last month but I’m trying to plan and be more organized! I’m going to try to post twice a week from now on so I’ll see if I can keep up with that!
Ipsy is one of my all time favourite subscription services. I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy long before I even had an idea of how to use a majority of the products that I received. It’s an inexpensive way to try out a bunch of different beauty products on a regular basis. Each month, subscribers receive a Glam Bag with 5 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. The service costs $10 USD, shipping is free within the US and an additional $4.95 USD to ship to Canada.
This month’s theme was unzipped. It was all about breaking down the barriers of what being sexy is. They want you to forget about size, shape and age when it comes to how you embrace yourself. I think it’s really cool that Ipsy made this theme something that actually matters rather than some weird theme that doesn’t even make sense like they always do. I loved that the bag was pink and lacy because I really think it goes with that unzipped theme.
Lately I’ve been cutting down my spending on makeup. Ever since I moved out I just don’t have as much money for makeup products, which can be disappointing sometimes. But I love where I’m living so I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
Just because I can’t spend as much money on makeup doesn’t mean that I don’t dream about all of the products that I can’t afford. I decided to put together a list of some of the products that I’ve been lusting over lately! There’s been a lot of products that caught my eye but these are a few that I feel like I need as soon as I can save up some money to buy them!
Every other week I try out 5 products and try to use them every single day for a week. This helps to give me a better understanding of exactly how I feel about the products. It sometimes forces me to use products that I rarely reach for or ones that I might have forgotten about.
January has been quite a busy month for me. I worked a lot of earlier shifts so I didn’t have as much time in the morning to apply all the makeup that I usually do. I went to work pretty often with a bare face and I’ve been a lot more comfortable doing that. But I had a lot of time on the weekends to play with makeup and have some fun with it. I spent a lot of time blogging this month so a few of my favourites were products that I was testing out for blog posts. View Post
