Ugh. I am totally ‘that blogger’ that goes away and comes back and goes away again. I’m sorry! I should be here to stay now – new hard drive installed and computer seems to be ticking along, good as new. Except for the fact that I have no idea where all my pictures went – and apparently they were able to save my documents etc. from the old drive. Must investigate.
In the meantime, thankfully the last big photopalooza I did was the same day my PC crapped out, and as such I still had all those pics on my memory card So I should be good for the next little while, anyway. Just hope I didn’t lose all my old stuff… No matter. THE POWER OF NOW, as my wise new bestie Marikym reminded me while we were away: be in the present. My present includes missing photos and a whole lot of product to write about – so away we go! There has been a lot of beauty goings-on in my world while I’ve been off galavanting around (which I had to do in order to keep myself occupied – good grief, finding things to do when you’re sans computer/internet is TOUGH O_o).
Here’s a quick update:
- Used up all this stuff!!
- Purchased a handful of new stuff!
- Lined up all my holiday polish and makeup shades (because I am a freak. Yes-indeed-y!)
- Embarked on a one-month endeavour to use every makeup product I own at least once (so far it’s going AWESOME!)
…yea. I’m literally writing each day down and what I wore. a) I’ll forget, and b)…I love me some lists. What can I say?
Anyway, besides all this fun stuff, I’ve also started growing my brows out *slightly* (just looking to have them a big thicker a la the trend right now), and I’ve figured out how to recapture the awesomeness of my hair style while in NZ – hair oil! I’ve been using Ojon’s Damage Remedy Restorative Oil (or some name to that effect), and THAT’S IT. No styling lotion, nothing else but a few drops of the oil, and my hair has never looked better – I think anyway! It’s got more softness and movement without looking so ‘done’ – which I thought was necessary to keep frizz away – and since it’s gotten so long, the weight on my hair keeps it from turning into one massively huge POUF and it’s just all sorts of awesome. For the first time I can ever remember, I actually really love my hair! So yay to that! I think the new conditioner I’m using (photo above – the brown Organix bottle) is also helping things along. But more on that product another day, as it deserves its own review!
So, all in all, while I’ve been chomping at the bit to get back online, I have been keeping myself busy (and not just with anal organizational tactics, I promise). What about you? What kind of beautiful things have you been up to? Any particular holiday festivities you’ve been enjoying?
