Where to start? I suppose a hello is in order. And then an apology. I feel as though I've let you guys down in the past couple of months. I suddenly disappeared off the face of the internet without any explanation. Don't get my wrong, it's not as though I think anyone was hanging off my every post – far from it – however I did build connections with you guys and I feel guilty vanishing. So I reckon I should let you know what's going on.
Do you ever try and take a photo for your blog and it's just not happening? Yeah, it's le poo. Some days I'll take over a hundred photos and the camera is still kicking my ass. When I'm stuck like that I'll usually go back, look through some of the better photos that I've taken in the past and try to pull from them. What I've noticed from doing that is that I have 5 sure fire ways to get a good shot. Well actually, there are probably more than 5, but 5 is such a nice, round number that sounds great in a title. If I go for one of these tricks I can turn things around.
As I entered my teen years, my skin became increasingly problematic. It was never horrendous by any means, but it was quite sensitive and prone to blotchiness and breakouts. Dealing with these issues got me interested in skincare. I've actually become something of a junkie. I love knowing exactly why and how products work. It's funny because they always tell us at work to speak to the benefits of a product, rather than the ingredients, but to me they're one in the same. To truly understand the benefits of a product, you have to understand the ingredients and what they're able to do for you. Knowing that will help you to determine exactly what's right for your skin and whether or not a product is worthwhile.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. I love me a Netflix binge-a-thon. There's so much good stuff constantly coming out on Netflix, particularly the original series, that I feel as though I could never get bored. It's a life-long conquest. Every once in a while I like to do an update on what I thought were stand out shows. Here's my new batch. Apologies for the fact that I'm rubbish at writing about shows. Really, you could skip my blurbs and just watch the shows. Oh, and please, please let me know what you've been watching!
I have obtained a rather large number of high end foundations in the last few months. This works quite well for me as, like many of you I'm sure, I love testing out new foundations. There's something immensely satisfying about the search for the perfect foundation. Finding the one foundation to rule them all, the one foundation to find them, the one foundation to bring them all and in the darkness bind them... yeah, that foundation. So anyways, I've tried out a lot of foundations and I wanted to give you a summary of my thoughts.
