Walking away from my soft resurrection…

Following suit from last year I thought I would share some of my favourite beauty from 2017. Which for me was a year of using up a lot of my stash and only rebuying what worked well for me. I’ve been focusing more on skincare, again my needs are shifting. My main concerns are dryness and anti-aging. I have some sun spots, some fine lines and the occasional blemishes. Here are some of the products that I tried this year.

Boscia Black Luminizing Mask – This is the second Boscia product that I’ve tried. I really like it. I will typically use this mask in conjunction with my Fresh Rose Mask. I like that it makes my skin feel smoother and firmer.

Fresh Rose Mask – I’ve used this mask on and off for the past few years. I find that it really helps calm my skin down when it is irritated.

Tony Moly Sheet Masks – I love, love, love these sheet masks, there is one for every concern. My favourite in the skin purifying and the strawberry nose pack.

Clinique Mascara – Since I have let go my Diorshow obsession due to the price point I have fallen for this mascara. I have tried so many mascaras over the past few years that have ranged in price and quality. This one is by far the best. It doesn’t run or flake, it stays put all day.

Tweezerman tweezers – I waited a long time before I finally invested in a set of high quality tweezers. They have a great weight to them and they are sharp as hell. I won’t need to sharpen them any time soon.

Drinking a shit ton of water – I am usually very good about keeping up on my fluid intake, but it’s easier said than done. One of my employees bought me a new water bottle for Christmas, so now I really have no excuse.

2018 will be a year to try new skin care, drink more water, and try to loose some weight. I’m looking forward to the year ahead, and there is a lot to look forward to! J’s really good friend is getting married, I’m going to turn 30 this year and our Little Girl is officially in toddler territory! And on that note it’s time to end!

All for now,

It won’t be better…

Happy New Year! I have to apologize for my unintentional hiatus. Things have been a little rougher than I would have liked. There have been a lot of things going on in my life that have caused so much stress, time, and energy that I haven’t really had a lot of time to sit and blog or write anything in general.

So the end of the year has come with some birthdays, our Little Girl is over a year… Where that hell did all the time go? We had some holidays, she really enjoyed Thanksgiving and Christmas.

So I’m easing myself back into this blogging thing… I’m hoping to post a couple times a week. I’m hoping to work on some interesting things this year. 2017 wasn’t a very productive year for blogging. I think my mood has had a lot to do with that. I feel like I may have had some postpartum depression, which is something that I have to work on and make some changes.

I’m starting small for January, I want to eat healthier (even though boxed mac and cheese is TDF), I want to start a simple yet effective exercise routine (I am super lazy these days, yet I also want to loose the last 20 pounds of baby weight) , I want to pay off some debt… You know all the minor adjustments for big picture changes. But I have to be accountable and I have to work at it.

Now that it’s mid month I figured I had better post something… Or you guys might think I may have disappeared… I have a few ideas for the next few months, I just hope that I have enough spare time to work on them all! And on that note, it’s time to end!

All for now,
