Long Time ....

Wow, it has almost been an entire year since I last wrote on this blog.

I lost my way a bit in beauty blogging. It started off with being busy with work, and then I was falling behind on what was new and felt what I would write would be irrelevant in a beauty world that was going at such a fast pace.

I didn't recognise the beauty blogging world anymore. It began to be filled with PR samples instead of real purchases and my mistrust for the authenticity of posts couldn't be shaken.

In the meanwhile, I began a massive cull of my collection in order to minimise my life and I didn't think someone would want to read about that.

But for 2015, I decided to take this blog in a different direction. Whether this will interest anyone is unknown, but I hope you join me as I minimise my life and use up the beauty products that I have before they have to be binned.

I have now moved for the 9th time in my life. This time, 5 hours away to a lovely quaint seaside town for work.  This move made me realise a few things:

1. I had things in storage that I forgot I had, leading me to believe that I never needed it or wanted it that badly to begin with

2. I have way too many eye shadows and nail polishes that I could possibly use in my lifetime

3. I was holding onto clothes that I hoped would I would fit into one day, and lastly

4. I realised the amount of money I spent on things that would go off if I didn't use it soon

So what to expect from this blog this year?

Products I have used up and my reviews of them and

My struggle as I embark on a beauty no-buy (other than foundation once I finish the ones I have) for 2015. (Even as I write that, I am panicking at the idea of a no-buy for an entire year)

So Merry Christmas everyone out there and see you in 2015 x


  1. Hi, a few years ago you did a blog post about acrylic makeup storage. I would like to know what storage you have now because I am looking to buy some acrylic drawers.

    1. I still have those homebase and muji acrylic drawers. I bought a few other acrylic pencil holders from MUJI, but it's all the same. I do have an IKEA helmer for some of my misc bits and my nail polish :)
