An Art Supply Haul

art supplies haul

Instead of spending money at Sephora’s Beauty Insider rewards sale, I spent it on art supplies. The only thing that has my eye right now is the Fresh Rose Mask I’ve been dreaming over, but honestly? I really don’t need it! I have my Kiehls Calendula and Aloe mask, and a healthy supply of sheet masks to finish first. So, I decided to spend it on art supplies instead because that’s bringing me the most happiness right now!

Just a warning, though: I nerd out a lot in this post about art supplies. I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea (as a self-proclaimed beauty blogger with most of my audience also being beauty bloggers), but 1) I’m *really* excited to talk about these, and 2) yolo ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Continue Reading

2017 Bullet Journal Review

Woah, is 2017 *actually* almost over?! It seems like everyone is saying this lately, but it’s true!

I wanted to share with my bullet journal review from this year, since it’s the first time I tried it. I’ll be going over what worked for me, what didn’t, and what I’d like to do more of for the upcoming year. Continue Reading

My Makeup Removers, Reviewed

Hi guys! I just wanted to give a big thank you for all the nice comments on my sketching/drawing/whatever from my last post. I don’t think I’m that good by any means, but your encouraging comments makes me want to do more and improve! I have a separate Instagram (@hymnaria) for all my drawing and planner things if you’d like to take look! On another note, how many frickin’ Instagram accounts do I need, hahaha.

Anyway! For today’s post, I wanted to gloss over the makeup removers I’m currently using, and a few other ones worth mentioning (fun fact: the Tatcha bottle is empty and the pink Garnier one is all used up but I filled it up with water). When you’re not that big of a shopaholic (contrary to some of my recent Sephora hauls and a Glossier haul coming in the near future…), you kind of have to get crafty with posts. Especially as a (self-proclaimed) beauty blogger. I’m planning to do this as a mini-series for my skincare – I can’t wait to get to the masks! Continue Reading
