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)_/¯
Woah, is 2017 *actually* almost over?! It seems like everyone is saying this lately, but it’s true!
Bullet journaling has really gained popularity over the last few years, so I joined in on the fun. 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.
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!
It’s been a while since the last Life, Lately so I thought I’d pop in, even though nothing interesting has been going on.
As the last installment of my Birchbox trial… I think you’ll know what I think since I’m saying it’s the last. I’ll go with reviewing/making first impressions on the products included like usual, and have my final thoughts at the end.
I do a lot of bold and unconventional makeup on Instagram, but I prefer wearing something light and simple on the daily. No makeup-makeup actually used to be a full face sans eye makeup, bold brows and heavy contour included. Nowadays I like something quick and easy – my everyday face usually takes about five minutes! What a long way I’ve come, huh?
