My Blog Story
This blog was born when I felt very uninspired with my 8+ year book blog. In the 8 years since I started blogging, my life changed. I had a son, and reading didn't happen as often. When I did have a chance to read, I didn't feel like reviewing the books. After I had my son, I really started getting back into makeup. It was ten minutes in the morning when I did something for myself. Something that made me feel better.
I use to never want to take pictures that had me in them. When I did look at pictures, I noticed how tried and worn out I looked. My son was a horrible sleeper, and he's just now starting to not wake up during night. He's almost four... Those early years were rough, when I returned to work after my year maternity leave. I was a mess! I was so tired, I didn't know what to do with myself. I would be crying, and not know why. I suddenly had alot of anxiety and knew I had to take control and organize myself. I turned to makeup as a form of self care. It was my creative outlet and something that I could do for myself. It has honestly changed me for the better. I like taking pictures with me in it again. I love when my son is scrolling through my Instagram and he sees a picture of us. I see someone who is much more happier, much more in control, and balanced.
Makeup has becoming a passion for me. I'm not a makeup artist, I'm just a 32 year old woman who loves to do her makeup in the morning. I love testing out products, and learning about the industry. This blog is a way for me to connect with other makeup lovers, and maybe mother's and wives. I hope to build a supportive community. I'm so happy to be blogging again, because I really missed it. It's exciting and I love seeing my blog grow. Thank you for all of those that have been commenting and reaching out.
