A few years ago around 2010 or so I had my first foray into beauty blogging, which was a creative outlet for me to share my love of all things beauty with others. After a couple years I made the decision to return to college and pursue an engineering degree, and as a result of the intensive coursework I was unable to keep up with the blog as I would have liked, so I shut it down.
Now, I’m finishing up my degree and getting ready to start graduate school, but if I have learned anything, it is this: you need to have variety in your life, and you make time for the things you love. I have been feeling the “itch” to get back into doing something that satisfies the creative side of me, and I felt it was time to get back into blogging about the things I enjoy.
My goal is ultimately to provide honest reviews of makeup, skincare, and haircare, with the kind of information that I personally would look for as a consumer. I also now have a different mindset regarding consumerism and our investment in products. I plan to not just provide general product reviews, but to be someone who actually uses up their products–so readers will also be able to see “Empties” posts, whether I would repurchase something, if there is a more affordable option that provides the same results, and so forth. I want the content here to be informative, creative, and relatable.
I hope you enjoy my blog and that you check back often!
